Northern Nigeria: A Critical Look. A Deep X-ray by naijaboy756: 6:19pm On Aug 12, 2016
Fellow Nigerians, this post might appear very controversial. Some will see some truths in it, others will see but instead, attack the message and the messanger. Others also,will see lies and an attempt to misinform. Today, the Emir of Katsina advised his co-northerners not to join other concerned Nigerians to criticize or insult Buhari. I had to take a deeper review of this advise and asked my self, what did the North come to this Nigerian table with? What is the contribution of the north to the Nigerian project? An emir with other traditional rulers are supposed to be the fathers of the nation. They are revered personalities controlling institutions that advice,correct,applaud,pray for and direct. They are meant to be just and not partial. They chastize when their sub-ordinates err. But the admonition by the emir leaves tears in my eyes. I am forced to ask. What has the north done for Nigeria? They gave us Abacha and IBB who will go down in history as the true definition of corruption. They stole without fear. The irony is that they are quickly trying to erase that part of our history by placing the corruption tag on GEJ. Currently, their son is taking Nigeria back 60years with his clueless-ness. Maitesine, Boko haram, several years of bloody riots. They have had the highest shots at the leadership spot yet they are the poorest,least educated and developed region. Quota system has been their saving grace. The south boasts of better facilities, living conditions, well educated people, less blood thirsty and above all, provides the resources feeding all. The huge mystery is then, why will the north with all the level of illiteracy and no resource be the region with right to leadership? They have had the larger share of both military and civilian rules with nothing to show for it. Imagine what Buhari is doing to Nigeria. It might end up as 4 wasted years in the history of our dear nation. Please don't get me wrong. I am not anti-north. Infact, I have many northern friends and lived with them some years back. But the Emir's comment today got me worried. He is supposed to father all. Correct any ill-child to the benefit of all. I feel the strength of the north comes from their quest to shed blood and the fact that they can marry plenty wives, give birth to plenty children who end up on the streets as tools for bloodshed. They also have very porous borders and because they share similar names and religion with most of our neighbours, foreigners enter Nigeria and claim to be Nigerians. No region/religion has monopoly of violence and bloodshed. A traditional ruler is supposed to be a fence-mender working in tandem with other traditional rulers to keep Nigeria one. Comments like this tear us apart more. I wish southerners will wake up. It is high time we restructured Nigeria. We can't continue like this. Pls note! I am not anti-north but the time has come.

Your lamentations have just begun.

While I do not support the Emirs admonition, and the trash you cobbled up there is not deserving of a response due to its sheer idiocy, it must be pointed out that it's completely absurd to ignore the 16 years of failed civilian leadership by the South and whine about the current economic situation which was ironically brought about by a core southerner while trying to heap blame on the North.

What makes your hypocrisy stink the most is the fact that you pretend to care for the Nigerian economy while supporting the scAvengers in their economic sabotage.

I like your type. Removing the military years of SAP and Co from the equation and blaming it on 16 years. Is Nigeria 16 years old? I have seen a newpaper headline where bread rose from 10k to 70k under this same Buhari the way rice, kerosene,dollar and fuel are all rising and jumping up. Leave avengers alone! You clapped for Boko. The Avengers came largely due to the 97% and 5% comment(how that adds up to 100% could be the reason Nigeria is like this now). Park well Mafia and ask your brothers the herdsmen to help the economy and Buhari by repenting from their evil ways

why do you want Nigeria to remain one by force, despite your reluctance to develop a progressive way of life, shelve religious bigotry and open to dialogue? you love Nigeria but doesn't want to take the rope to peace, prosperity and progress.

You are just jumping from pillar to post without effectively answering any of my posers.

Listen if your brain has not deciphered it for you that the military is made up of jack booted soldiers trained to kill & destroy and not govern or lead a country to development.

What you're doing is like asking a carpenter why a car engine he worked on is still not working just because he overpowered the mechanic and collected his tools to use.

I repeat that the South FAILED to lead Nigeria to progress after 16 years in the Presidency. Today we still suffer from lack of electricity, roads, water, standard education etc. and we are still a mono economy despite the high oil prices southerners ruled over which is the ROOT of any economic problem Buhari and other Nigerians are battling today. This was a southern leadership led by civilians including a so called PHD holder that governed under a democratic era so you have no excuses.

I also emphasize that only complete idiots and unrepentant hypocrites will complain about the economy while supporting and hailing the scAvengers at the same time for economic sabotage.

Just ignore the brain dead irritants.

They are the same people that would complain of marginalization and the North dominating the military/government agencies and owning the best roads and government infrastructure, but in the same breath say the North is the most backward region that gained nothing from leading this country the most.

hahahaha... Would have called you a huge mumu but I would risk a ban. The entire 'failure' of the south as you have **** assumed doesn't equate to the failure medal buhari has won in less than 2 years. I am certain **** like you blamed the last administration for lack of securing the nation when your brothers were blindly destroying the north. Where you sound more **** is making it look like the avengers is the reason for the sorry state of the nigerian economy. Mind you, yaradua had interaction with militants. Meaning militants have been there with genuine agitations. Stop using the avengers like they are one new group. Stop giving and making useless excuses for someone that is naturally dull. I repeat...who knows, there would have been no avenger if you if it occured to your president that he is the president of 100% nigerians and not his 97%/5% mathematics.

which North are you talking about? What did your leaders do for you? You all are contended with one rich man giving you 'sadaka' on the queue daily.

Like I just told your co-traveller dropshot on another thread, can you , in all SINCERITY, say to a toddler, not an adult, that Nigeria was enjoying a golden era prior to the advent of the PDP regimes that lasted 16 yrs ?

Can you look at yourself in mirror and say to yourself that Nigeriaof 2015 was not 100 times better than the Nigeria of 1999 in every measurable index?

If you , a Northerner, didn't do well or see progress in the 16 yrs of PDP rule, then I shouldn't be surprised, and I suggest you do some self-introspection , and find out why you missed the train of unprecedented economic progress achieved during that era.

If you , as a group, didn't do well during the 16 yrs of good democracy and economic growth, you will certainly suffer more during these LOCUST years , no matter how many of you are appointed to federal offices.

Agreed 100℅.

Educated people like Fulanimafia, who should be fighting for the common man, fighting for the birth and growth of the Northern middle class, is too busy here irrationally defending the Feudal oligarchs that are the main problems of the North.

Is the carpenter who overpowered the mechanic, knowing very well that he lacked the knowhow to do his job, to be absolved of blame?

Using your analogy, if a carpenter takes over repair of a car, leaves it a worse condition than when its owner sent it in for maintenance/ repair and then hands it over to a mechanic who is then unable to restore it, who is to blame for the condition of the car?
