One thing you failed to realise is, why I said an Igbo needs a Yoruba for presidency is an average Hausa man will never trust an Igbo man to entrust Nigeria in his hands after the Biafran war. The whole Southsouth and southeast did not vote for Buhari and that did not affect the results of the election. Creating enemies across the federated Nigeria will not help igbo. Be wise.







When the whole of sw voted for Awolowo and Falae did it affect the results of the elections? Abeg park well. They are creating enemies because they voted their choice. Why didn't we just don't bother about holding the elections and instead just declare Buhari as the Next president. Is it by force to vote for APC

So how is the APC different from the PDP? If they are doing the same thing but change of regional alliance.. Tell me sincerely how this equates to the change mantra that has been preached like the second coming of Christ.

Fyi Obasanjo became president in 1999 not because of sw but because of the north. Similarly GEJ became president because Yaradua died in power. Forget all this thrash what will happen will happen

I'm a Yoruba boy and I think people whose mentality are in your direction are quite myopic. This is a democracy, Yoruba has always voted for opposition since return to democracy in 1999 ... We had AD which later broke into AC then ACN and now APC while the rest of the country go for PDP except few northern states with ANPP. The Igbo's believe in Jonathan/PDP and voted for PDP......

Being in the position of authority doesn't guarantee development, The Northern Nigeria occupy more than 50% of the positions in Nigeria, ruled more than 50% of Nigerian political years , have richer individuals than southerners thus record highest level of poverty index and underdevelopment in Nigeria.

let SE/SS also be in opposition and see how it feels, it is unhealthy for a whole nation to navigate one direction....
Your head de there.
But when you say.."should be in opposition and see how it feels"...you make it look like a bad thing. It is not.
Like you rightly said, and I have always opined, these positions do not guarantee development.
You only need to look at David Marks constituency to validate my assertion.

An average Igbo educated guys are less tribalists unlike their illiterates and educated females, though I don't know where you belong?.
But when has Igbo not played second fiddle in the arrangements of things in Nigeria? I have kept saying this. Igbo man needs Yoruba more than Yoruba needs Igbo to rule Nigeria.
Yoruba can do without Igbo to clinch Nigerian presidency as happened in Jonathan administration and the failure of Jonathan to honour Yorubas in his government made him failed the second term.
Please check my previous posts and you will understand this better.
We are all Nigerians let us unite and forge ahead. I will want a Nigeria where Chukwu will not say I am an Igbo and Kayode will say I am a Yoruba but we all say I am a Nigerian. God bless Nigeria.


In Johnathan the alliance was there when he won in 2011. Look at the map of where the votes that elected him came from. But the hatred the SE/SS people had for the Yoruba blinded him to reality. He wanted to form an alliance with the Northerners at the expense of the Yoruba s. Just look at the make up of both the executive, and legislative during Jonathan presidency that will tell you all you need to know. He forgot one thing the SE/SS needs the SW in order to rule. In Nigeria politics the SW is the king maker. Which ever region the SW is align with rule. The North will always feel comfortable to be in an alliance with the SW rather than with the SE/SS. What worries me now, is I think the SE/SS will forever be condemned to the wilderness when it comes to Nigeria politics. This can only change until the SE/SS can come to terms with the SW.

Politics is like that some times. I am not Igbo but I think the only thing Igbo men need to thrive is a good business environment.
No matter how much the current government tries to subdue them, they will survive
I have friends from there and I know how they think.
Only a few lazy ones among them waits for government money.

No. It is an opportunity for introspection and self identity. It is a huge advantage. The South-East has produced the Senate President. Before Mark they were all from the South-East. To what benefit. Very little. Ike Ekweremadu has been by far the most effective Senator in this dispensation. He was the Deputy at best.

The Igbos should remain firmly in opposition. The west did it for all but sixteen years and built an identity. The east should do similar and emerge with their own brand of change that will take us to the next level when this one will have run its course. No nation should put all its political eggs in one basket.

You are dead wrong, Zoning does not solve any problem, instead it creates more problems for the fact that incompetent people occupy positions, The answer is True Fiscal and Financial Federalism, you thing if the US used Zoning they wold have been the world's Greatest nation? Common sense is the only thing that is not common in Nigeria

My friend say something else. You're talking as if you're wiser than king solomon. Sounds like someone who's beefing another who has what himself doesn't.

So because they say let this position go to this zone, you conclude that no one is competent from that zone?

See you talking of American true federalism and what not. Do you know the composition of the American senate/HOR? Do you know how they elect speaker? Do you know the composition of Obama's Staff? Do you think half the 50 or so states in USA will listen to stories of competence with principal officers coming from 5 states of the federation.

If they say let B zone produce Senate President, u automatically infer that no senator is competent from that zone? NC got the zoning arrangement b4 and mark emerged senate president. Didn't he do a good job being senate president?

Common sense is really not common.

Very very lopsided arrangements! APC lacked national spread. if not that PDP messed up the polity, they recmain the only party with spread across the country . A party without spread across the country will definitely marginalized some part of the country and this is not healthy for our country democracy. The APC still has a lot of work to do in order to correct these anomalies.

I supported your write up to a certainly level but I will not support the point that Yoruba have always voted for opposition and benefit nothing from the central government.In 1999 all south west governors were opposition but thing change in 2003 where you have the likes of Ladoja in oyo state,Adelelke in Osun state etc and senate and rep is mixed up in south west.Yorubas has producing speaker and senate leaders.Also have opportunty to produce speaker in 2011 before it was later sold out.My argument is this,Yoruba has never for once be a full opposition party apart from 1999 it was always mixed up.This time around you can as well see Ekiti producing PDP governor while lagos that was known for full opposition produce. PDP rep and other states like that.Ibos should forget about hate politics and be a mixed party.I'm not saying they should not support their interest but they should do the one that will favor them better.Yoruba rejected Obasanjo because we know that he will never be of benefit to us and he's not benefit to us till he leave that position.Jonathan has donme nothing for south east so,I do not see reason of them supporting him to that extent while the south south even supported APC more than them.

good morning Nigerians, please d notion of Igbo hating other ethnic should be erased, it's just a matter of choice, we are all one Nigeria & anybody that rules, will definitely rules d whole Nigeria. yes Igbo did not really vote APC because they had no option than to support their brother & neighbor. since 1999, Igbo have been voting other tribe but no one called them been tribalistic, just because they supported their brother, all I wish Nigeria is good governance because we are lagging behind & we need to grow. I'm an Igbo man but my best ever friend is a Fulani girl & so many Hausa origin. I have so many Yoruba & plateau friends & among others, so please enough of all this chit chat & let start praying for a better Nigeria, unity in diversity is what I always ask of.

We are not worried about that for now, let the development continue in SW like MRKNOWITALL says up there. My other concern is how my Ibo brother will one day become a President of this country without prejudice from other tribes. Igbo should know that they need both the Hausa and the Yoruba support to attain the highest official position in Nigeria.

See everyone including you speaking against the arrangement or understanding of zoning, and all I see is hypocrisy

If the election for principal officers is conducted, and based on competence (in your eyes). A particular zone gets half the principal positions in the senate or house. You folks will be the same people to raise the borne to rule agenda, or start ranting about zonal neglect or betrayal of some sort.

Zoning presents a balanced opportunity for every region to have a say in the affairs of Nigeria. Even though not constitutionally enshrined, but it solves so many issues all at once.
did i ever mention anything about sharing anything on my post? i am educated enough to knw that, my point of view is on the kind of comment ppl are making here like i said i am from the north bt the hate post here is too much,
come to think of it if akume from benue is given the post of the SP what direct effect does if have on the lives of ppl living in nasrawa state for instance? so lets forget about all this post thing and pray that good governance gets to the common man case close

Bros it is no longer in your hands. Unless Buhari dies on the seat,he would rule for eight years. Do not think that everyone is like GEJ who would not rig elections. Besides the south would never unite again, so pushing him out even in a free and fair elections would not be easy

I guess you just rigged Buhari in with your voodoo rigging machines in the Southeast. Rigging is so much in your DNAs that you don't believe anyone can win elections based on convictions and perceptions. It is normal because you guys even rig in areas you have 100% control over the people. 2019 elections will be judged based on the performance of the incoming government. The days of election rigging and godfather politics is gradually coming to an end. The APC as a party know this. Fumble and kiss your seat goodbye in the next elections. That is why the PDP should make sure they monitor the few states they control so they perform excellently. That is the only way they can bounce back. If Buhari messes up he will be shown the door in 2019 and nothing anyone will do about it. The core north alone cannot guarantee him victory.

The attitude of the Lagos landlords against the Igbos is evident.

In fact this is the case of kettle calling pot black.
