|The Northernization Policy Of Ahmadu Bello by PhysicsQED(m): 11:24pm On Feb 26, 2012|
I've read much of a book lately on Ahmadu Bello (by John N. Paden) which outlines his development strategies (such as spending 1/3 of the North's budget on education) and the rationale behind the northernization policy (in his own words and with supporting statements from associates) and I am finding it extremely difficult to see what it is that this man did wrong with respect to "northernization" either in policy or implementation.
I think later I'll post the chapter of that book in its entirety that deals with the issue of the Sardauna's development strategies. I think some of the posters on this forum need to see the "other side" of the "Northerners first in the North" argument and why it made/makes sense.
And if the Northern military leaders who ruled Nigeria after 1966 were even half as competent as this man, Northern Nigeria might be a very different place.
