I found this video. Its very revealing. The summary is this:

Throwback Sunday: "It Must Be A Northerner First Or We Employ White Man" - Ahmadu Bello (1960)

Northern venerated leader, Ahmadu Bello Sarduana of Sokoto, in an interview spoke about Igbo and Nigeria.

"There must be a policy of "A Northern first In Nigeria", good positions must be occupied by Northerners, if there is no qualified Northerner, Nigeria will hire a white man on contract.

"If there are no white people available, then the North will consider other Nigerians only on contract basis," Bello said.

What do you think?

I remember watching that. If the founding father of a "unified nation" can have such a mentality, it would not be too far-fetched to assume that the entire Notion of Nigeria was conceived not out of unity and peace, but of Selfish interest. Tribalism, zoning and quota system is one of the major problems of Nigeria and is still very prevalent today.

i watched it years ago and criticised ahmadu bello. but later on i understood his stance. if the ibo man is most qualified for a slot why not give him? the problem is he tries to dominate and ensure only ibos get there. it is that attitude that gave birth to the federal character system. were it not for fc, nigeria will have experienced a genocide of the rwandan scale. ahmadu bello was a northern leader and as far as protecting the interest of the north was concerned, he did a great job.

I love this man. Sardauna is the hero of northern nigeria. He had the opportunity to become the prime minister as the Chairman of NPC. But he asked Tafawa Balewa to go to Lagos and become the Prime Minister so that he would stay back and develop the North.

Thats why Northerners will never forget or forgive his Igbo killers.

Funny enough this was the same man that accused igbo people of being "greedy" and trying to hold onto everything. The same ugly tribalistic buffoon of a man. See am.
I've always said it, everything the north ever accuse others of doing, they are the king in it. They want to systematically be the "white man" of Nigeria aka slave masters/colonizers. I swear Zik f2ked us up by uniting igbo with yoruba and hausa. He f2ked us up.

If by chance Buhari wins this election, extremely hard times lies ahead for this country.

Definitely, the creeks will go haywire again, Buhari will send the troops to the creeks and together they will set the oil facilities ablaze.

OBJ's use of JTF force could not help as no Oil producing company will risk producing crude and killing staff in a volatile region.

GEJ under Yaradua had to get down to the creeks to to talk to these boys and effect the amnesty program because they found him as a representation in government.

If after GEJ's achievements in almost all sectors, roads, bridges, railways, agriculture, automobile, alamajiri schools, new universities, fertilizer and ghost worker scam elimination, freedom of press, FOI, free and fair elections, power sector. .........etc, he is still booted out. It will be impossible to convince a ND minority albeit a militant that their own was not persecuted out of office. And that will be the theme of the new struggle. The long term solution to this mess is implementing the Confab report and enthroning true federalism.

While these persists, the oil producing companies will simply withdraw their personnel from the volatile region and all foreign investments will seize in all sectors.

And even if the troops kill 90% of the militants, it will take just one militant, a dynamite and just one location along the multi- kilometre trunklines to continue to wreck havoc.

Fast forward to 2019, if we remain one country and without a civil war,, we will be an economic wreck with no allocations and salaries, no capital projects, no hope with dollar exchanging for 400 naira and we are worse off than we were in 2015.

Cos the truth is that without crude proceeds for now, Nigeria is finished.

And then, we'll be screaming another 'Change' because we would have learnt a bitter lesson in the hands of the Fulanis, Tinubu and Saraki.And then we will ask.... Why were we this silly?

And before you quote me, make sure you outline in clear terms how you or Buhari will avert this obvious calamity staring us in the face


Only last week, they creek boys seem to have resumed activities by kidnapping at Yoho facility operated by Exxonmobil and have shut in 80KBD already. Are we ready for this for the next 4 years?

The entire world stands to benefit from a crisis in the Niger delta. Its not a coincidence that USA who abandoned us at the height of bokoharam is busy shouting for change in govt . Crises in the ND will reduce supply of crude to the Oil market and that would drive up the price of crude for producing countries.... But at Nigeria's expense.

Nigerians.... Be Warned!!!

Really? Is that the best you got? Digging crap from 1960 to campaign for GEJ? Last time i checked Buhari isn't Bello and Buhari never did or said anything like Bello. So the fact that you're attempting to paint them in the same brush exposes your ass as nothing but a little bigoted cvnt. By the way using your logic I'm gonna go ahead and say Jonathan is a punk ass militant cvnt!

See ugly comments above. Igbos are liars and woe be unto the liars. The man was the premier of old northern region, in the said interview he was talking in regards to his region and not Nigeria as a whole. When people engaged in falsehood too much there would never be any meaningful progress. Nigerians love lies, we should desist henceforth for us to progress.

Nigeria belongs to all not northerners. For 38 yrs the north ruled, they could not even provide schools for their people because they want to keep them under a few ruling family.

They wouldn't do the same for Nigeria.

In the mind of the I-diotic TANscammoids they feel that only their zone can elect their leaders, forgetting that in becoming a president today is dependent on votes from every Nigerian accross zones and states.
