The Coming Realignment In Yorubaland - By Femi Fani-kayode by brixton: 10:42pm On Oct 05, 2016
Read his piece below...
There are two events that are of major significance this week. The first is the birthday of a man of immense integrity and a great son of the Yoruba by the name of Olusegun Rahman Mimiko who was 62 years old on October 3rd.
Much has been said about him over the last few years and encomiums have been deservedly showered on him from all quarters for his birthday. I will only add this: ever since I have known Mimiko when he was a senior colleague in President Obasanjo's cabinet he has been kind, forthright, courageous, honest, consistent, clear-thinking, hard-working and God-fearing.

His tenure as Minister of Housing under Obasanjo was successful and he went on, against all odds, to be elected governor of Ondo state where his work and legacy, particularly in the health sector, is simply outstanding.

Anyone that doubts that should simply pay a visit to Ondo state and see for themselves. What he has done in the last 8 years is simply unprecedented and I am very proud of him.

He has proved to be a loyal friend through thick and thin and he possesses an uncanny foresight into matters that only the Holy Spirit can give.

A devout and committed evangelical Christian, who like many of us, is not ashamed of proclaiming his faith and carrying it into all that he does, Mimiko undoubtedly still has a major role to play in the affairs of our nation.

I am proud to be not just one of his political associates and friends but also his brother and I stand shoulder to shoulder with him in whatever his ambitions or aspirations may be for the future.

The other significant event is the rapproachement and blooming friendship that exists between two sons of the Yoruba both of whom I have immense respect and affection for. Like Mimiko I have a special place in my heart for them both and this has been so for many years.

The first is my brother Ayo Fayose whose courage is second to none and the second is Rauf Aregbesola who is a yoruba nationalist to the core and who is, in my view, the brightest and the best within the ranks of the APC.

I got to know Fayose well when he was Governor of Ekiti in his first coming and only a fool will not acknowledge the fact that his return to power a number of years later after suffering the most terrible and wicked form of persecution from his enemies was clearly prophetic.

Fayose was accused of corruption and prosecuted by the EFCC. He was also accused of murder and so many other things by those who wanted him dead and destroyed.

Yet in spite of it all he defeated his traducers and adversaries in court, he rose again and he has not only become one of the most potent voices and forces in our politics today but he has also metamorphosised into something of a whirlwind and destructive hurricane against the Buhari administration.

He is a man that is destined for greatness despite his humble beginnings and he has broken all the norms and crossed all the red lines and boundries of Yoruba politics by proudly and openly defying the powers that be in the west, capturing the imagination of the people and bulldozing his way to the top by popular will. That takes guts and it could only have been done by the finger of God.

Then comes Rauf Aregbesola who I got to know well in 2013. What I found the most attractive and most extraordinary about him was his loyalty to any cause that he commits himself to coupled with his total and complete faithfullness and fidelity to his political associates and friends and particularly to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu under whom he served as Commisioner for Works.

Apart from that few know that he is an expert and authority on Yoruba ancient history and this informs and feeds his very rare and distinct sense of Yoruba nationalism.

I have written about him on several occasions over the years and despite the fact that I disagree fundamentally with him on a number of issues and we do not belong to the same party my admiration and respect for him remains intact and unshakeable.



We may all have our differences in terms of political party affiliation but one thing is clear: as he rightly told Fayose during thier recent meeting in Ado Ekiti a few days ago, there will be a realignment of political forces both in and outside of the south west very soon. There is no question about the fact that he is right about that.

And when that time comes we all need to wise up, smell the coffee and accept the fact that we must stand together as one in order to defend the interest of our people.

When the lion and the tiger stand shoulder to shoulder in defence of the castle it makes it very difficult for the jackals and the bandits to mount the walls and take the gates.

For those that are still asleep and that refuse to recognise the fact that there is a problem in this country kindly consider the following.

30 per cent of the oil reserves and 40 per cent of the gas reserves in our country are in Bayelsa state.

Nigeria has become relatively rich as a consequence of this and up until one year four months ago our economy was booming.

The oil of the people of the Niger Delta appears to be good enough for Nigeria yet the people of the Niger Delta do not appear to be worthy of anything as far as Nigeria is concerned.

After railroading the only Niger Deltan President in our history out of power in a rigged election after just one term and then coming after his family, friends and political associates with everything that they have got, the new powers that be refused to stop there.

They went further by doing their best to rig the governorship election in his state but they failed as a consequence of the sheer doggedness and fortitude of Seriake Dickson, the Governor of the state and the defiant and gallant fighting spirit of the people.

Yet in an attempt to pay them back for their stubborn streak the President decided to prove to the whole world that Bayelsa, the state that lays the golden egg for the whole nation, was not worthy of even one member of the Board of Directors of NNPC or even one out of the 44 Ambassadors that were recently appointed by him. On all counts Bayelsa was left out.

Is that fair? Is it justice? Is it equity? I must acknowledge the fact that I was furnished with these interesting facts by the Secretary to the Bayelsa State Government, His Royal Highness Barrister David Serena-Dokubo Spiff, and having cross-checked them they have proved to be accurate and true.

This sort of treatment that has been meted to Bayelsa state goes across the board in all the states of both the south-south and the south-eastern zones of our country.

The story is the same in both regions: it is one of marginalisation and humiliation. And for some of my Yoruba kinsmen to believe that it will not eventually be applied to them too is the height of naivety.

With the attempted demystification of Tinubu the process has already started and we better sit up and learn fast.

When your neighbours house is being set on fire by the marauding barbarians and invaders do not gloat because it is only a matter of time before they set their sights on yours as well.

Yet let me be clear. I do not talk about a realignment of forces with cowards and quislings and neither am I proposing joining forces or closing ranks with those who have sold their souls to the devil, who have traded their heritage for a mess of pottage and who have decided to be perpetual slaves to the ultra-conservative feudalist hegemonist forces of the core north.

I do not refer to those who have decided to sell their erstwhile mentors, elders, betters and political leaders in the south-west down the river in return for being made a "super-Minister".

I do not refer to those that have consistently rejected the idea of restructuring our country or redefining the composition and nature of our union and who believe that all is well with the structure of our so-called federation.

I do not refer to those who believe that the entire south is simply a conquered territory or an enclave and appendage of the north.

I do not refer to those who have consistently rejected the concept of a handshake across the River Niger from the west with our Igbo and Niger Deltan brothers.

I do not refer to those that have consistently derided the idea of southern unity even if we may have had our differences in the past.

I do not refer to those who would rather go and pay homage to the powers that be in the core north than pay their respects to their southern brothers and sisters.

I do not refer to those who see nothing wrong with the activities of the Fulani herdsmen, who express joy whenever IPOB members are killed, who take pleasure in the military occupation of the Niger Delta and who refuse to acknowledge the challenges and horrific plight that the people of the Middle Belt and the northern minorities are facing.

I do not refer to those who align and identify with the Muslim north purely for religious and political reasons forgetting that Islam came to the south west through the Turkish traders 200 years before the 1804 jihad of Usman Dan Fodio and well before the establishment of the Fulani Caliphate.

I do not refer to those who are comfortable with the fact that they are looked down upon as Yoruba Muslims by their northern counterparts and who are pleased with the fact that they are not allowed to lead any northern Muslim in prayer in the mosques.

I do not refer to those who are posessed by the spirit of Absalom, who have decided to kill their fathers, who are committed to betraying the south west and who have offered themselves out as the "new alternative" of yoruba leaders that will become ever-ready puppets of an all-powerful core north. I need mention no names but they know who they are.

They include those that enjoy to watch and hear about the shaming, suffering and humiliation of their own southern kinsmen and brothers.

They include the unconscionable bastards, the house-niggers, the Uncle Toms, the lowest of the low and the scum of the earth. Men that have no dignity and no self-respect. Men that have no knowledge of history and that have lost their self-esteem. Men that are suffering from an acute sense of self-hatred and that wish they had not been born into their families or tribes.

Men that have lost their souls and that have submitted themselves and future generations of their families to perpetual servitude and slavery.

Quislings that are ready to trade in their daughters and wives for political favours and consideration from their new-found ethnic masters.

Animals that are ready to destroy the future of their own children and turn them into serfs and second-class citizens in return for a few crumbs from the masters table.

Such creatures are not welcome to the table of rapprochement or reconciliation. There can be no realignment with such beasts because there is no fellowship between light and darkness.

Such a table is reserved only for the omuoluabi's of the west. The civilised, the well-educated, the humble, the enlightened, the contrite and the well-to-do.

The earlier that men like Rauf Aregebesola, Ayo Fayose, Olusegun Mimiko and a number of others put their differences aside and join forces to protect and further the interests of the Yoruba people in a wider Nigeria the better.

Given what is slowly unfolding in our respective political parties and our country it is obvious that we have little choice.

Whether you are in the PDP or the APC the paramount interest must be how to further the Yoruba interest, how to restore the dignity of our people and how to ensure that our country is redefined or restructured before it is too late. Anything less than that will lead to our collective doom.

Whether they like it or not those that betrayed our cause and that stuck the dagger into our hearts will pay a heavy price. A political re-alignment is coming in the south west. At every crirical point in our history the north has always realigned in order to protect or further their interests.

As a matter of fact that is the secret of their success. It is about time that we in the south west in particular and in the south generally did the same. May God grant us the fortitude and the wisdom to do so.

**** 1960's western movie sound track playing*****

One shot fired.


Now back to other important matters namely the Bayelsa issue, Femi is just ranting here. Rivers State was a more humiliating loss for the APC so if they were going to punish any state in the South South, it would be Rivers. Bayelsa in my opinion lost out because there's really no strong politician from there in the APC(Sylvia doesn't count).


Now back to the movie*****

#1. I had to read this epistle twice to see verses from the Holy Bible because FFK doesn't write anything these days without quote from the Bible.

Op, are you sure this epistle was penned by FFK?

#2. I would have taken FFK serious if he had written this epistle about Yoruba realignment seriously before or during GEJ administration. GEJ lost an election and he has not stopped crying blue mother ever since. If Jonathan had done well, we wouldn't even consider voting for an illiterate, know nothing, bigoted, self centered, and inept of a president called Buhari.

FFK should go and sit down.

1)Read again, Bible quotes are up there ...

2)You didn't vote against Jonathan because of any performance related issue but pure hatred for his person based on ethnic cum religious bias ... otherwise tell me if Obasanjo achieved one third( 1/3) of what Jonathan achieved as president in his first term; yet he was massively voted & reelected for 2nd term by Yoruba folks...

Trash.

Jonathan was a failure and thief. He should never have been allowed to run a school not to talk of a country. Jonathan was an hopeless president who almost let Boko haram took over the country. Jonathan let every tom d1ck and harry have access to national treasury with no question asked. If he didn't fail, we wouldn't have voted against him. We voted for him for his first term in office and voted against him for his second term in office because he failed in every aspect of governance.

Everything he said is on point..but the fact is that it's late already.
The deed has been done..seed planted..and we are what we are..

The south can never be united..in one nigeria.
Southern unity can only come with respect,and this can be possible..where we have, oduduwa republic, biafra, nigerdelta..then we will have respect for each other.

Restructuring and fiscal federalism will be much easier to achieve in present naija..than southern unity.



Till then..let everyone protect it's interest,noting the political complexity of the country.

The political united north...runs naija...and there's little. We can do about it.

Sharing alingnment and co-join with South East and South South is a worse option than an alignment with North.

FFK usually isn't right on a lot of things. But this time, I agree with him on a number of issues raised.

One must understand that humans generally -- their associations, movements, sacrifice, relationships, etc., are motivated by self-interest. Even at our best, we are only out for ourselves.

Consider the personal gain in a father raising a child to to reach his potential: he does it so that the child will return the favor when he's full fledged. Even the benevolent do it for praise or public admiration.

Ignore those underlying truth in any relationship at your own peril.

People look at the north from an advantaged position by virtue of them holding a number of key positions in the history of our dear country. I, on the other hand, do from a different perspective.

Regardless your motive or intentions, good or bad, people can only define you based on their perspective of you.

A lot of privileged folks up north have done a bad job of marketing to Nigerians of other region. They have been the center stage in the political arena for decades, and in that time, they have been selfish, gaudy, blunt, crude, and have shown signs of a lack of propriety most of the time. They have failed to make themselves relatable to most Nigerians, especially those of Southern extraction.

By the preceding, I very much understand FFK's concerns. Of course I am also aware that he is taking advantage of the happenings in and around the APC to convulse. But he wouldn't have if they hadn't gifted him the chance to. Plus, his wisdom here trumps every other sentiment, for me at least.

I believe so because I relate with what he is saying. On the one hand, I have witnessed a lot of instances where the northern Muslims treated the Yoruba ones as lesser Muslims, and on the other, I have heard a number of northern elites make careless denigrating remarks (a certain scumbag, Yakassai, comes to mind).

The Daura mafia have succeeded in destroying trust that took years to build. But it's not them I'm worried about, it's the fact that they are tarnishing the image of a good number of northerners whom I know firsthand, that are trustworthy, loyal, and dependable. People who are always on deck for you. Individuals that will ride and die with you--all being painted in a negative light by how many people exactly?

While Tinubu's agenda is self-serving, admittedly, treating someone who staked his future and reputation for you this dehumanizingly surely isn't the way to go. You don't destroy the copter you flew on to an island on safely landing it. How do you journey back home when the boat is not for you?

If you ever doubted it, if like me, you believed that power doesn't necessarily intoxicate, Buhari is prove to the contrary.

I wonder how much it costs to treat everyone just and fairly, regardless of ethnicity or religion, social or political affiliations. People are beginning to make certain associations sacrilegious.

Another rant of a mad dog.

FFK, where were you when our collective commonwealth was being looted by your friends and you?

Where were you when SW was being marginalised by your drunken master of Otuoke?

Where were you when the Mandela of Otuoke was calling leaders of SW bastar.ds!

Where were you when we all voted massively for Jonathan against all odds for the man that had no shoes and without any PhD publication?

Where were you when Aso Rock was turned into a House of Debauchery and Club House?

Where were you when pension fraud was happening? Where were you when funds for procurement of Arms was being shared and someone's father, uncle, brother and son-in-law was dying on the battle field for nothing?

Where were you when recalcitrant goats were unleashed our yams?

Save us your ethno-religious rants. Gone are the days when political elites can be using ethnicity and religion to hoodwink us, for them to perpetrate themselves in power.

Are you envious of the "Super-Minister"? These are people that have left their mark at state level and they are trying to fix the mess people like you that had opportune to lead us twice never fixed.

FFK you were a Minister of the Federal Republic, what exactly was your achievement?

You and your ilks lost out in the last election and accept it for good. Dedicate your time to return of our looted commonwealth and barn of "yams" that you ate.

In saner clime, your likes will be cooling off in Gitzmo till you depart this world.

Right from the days of Lord Lugard, there has never been any Southern unity and there will not be anyone soon.

This is so true! For once I believe Fani Kayode. The north wants to hijack west from Tinubu through some betrayals. And Tinubu won't mind to dine with his political enemies to make that impossible. For the fact Fayose and mimiko belong to the opposition party ,they have never for once be in disagreement with Tinubu. Behind the scenes of politics, they have always been allies.
I'm certain APC is about to go down in West because Tinubu now know where Buhari truly belong. Aregbeshola is a crazy politician. He has beginning to play his role to make the realignment possible. Now I see Tinubu's back up plan is playing out. North has failed west.
I'm watching Peter Obi too. I can't place him in this game for now.

You are naive.

Always remember that politics is an art and it is war. You lose some battles you win some.

I careless about Tinubu or APC or PDP whatever they do to or are they are doing themselves. It is also another golden opportunity for Tinubu to display his dexterity once again.

Unfortunately, this time around it can either make or mar him and even probably turn him to a colossus living legend and a god.

Olisa Agbakoba said at the Platform on Saturday we are too docile as a people. We keep allowing less than 2,000 people to define our lives. The day we are serious as a people about the restructuring 100million Fulanis cannot stop it.

How has the North failed the West? Who are the Norths?

It is high time you realise in the game of politics, masses are just numbers to politicians no matter where they are from.

As 2019 is approaching there would be political realignment. There is nothing unusual in that, it has always been from time immemorial.

The only thing that will separate politicians in 2019 is the message and not the messenger. Remember that the messenger and the vehicle of the messenger separated the politicians in 2015. It is the message you are carrying that will distinguish one politicians from the other in 2019.

What is the message? Restructuring, power devolution, amendment of the constitution, referendum, resource control etc

You are naive.

Always remember that politics is an art and it is war. You lose some battles you win some.

I careless about Tinubu or APC or PDP whatever they do to or are they are doing themselves. It is also another golden opportunity for Tinubu to display his dexterity once again.

Unfortunately, this time around it can either make or mar him and even probably turn him to a colossus living legend and a god.

Olisa Agbakoba said at the Platform on Saturday we are too docile as a people. We keep allowing less than 2,000 people to define our lives. The day we are serious as a people about the restructuring 100million Fulanis cannot stop it.
He is very right. We are in recession,and we are laughing about it. The condition of the economy is not improving. They are telling us change begins with us. And one stupid senator said Buhari should give amnesty to the looters. We are too docile.

Change truly must begin with us because we are all building block of the nation. From you and I to, family, Community, Towns and cities, LG, State and the nation.

For us to be in recession now, we simply ate our today yesterday and probably even our future.

Masses should stop backing corrupt politicians based on ethnic and religious sentiments.

I doubt this thief knows that he worths less than a kobo among we his tribesmen. The Yorubas are a proud and highly intelligent tribe that detest everything that makes up this man and similar traits are found in Fayose. I wish people can just forget they are yorubas grin. And I hate hearing that word southerners, what that fvck is that?

After selling the whole Nigeria to the North, now una wan come re-align.

I have heard before the problem with Nigeria is the West.

I am now coming to believe it.

Was it not the revered west preacher Adeboye that sold the christian to the a jihadist, called buhari?


http://saharareporters.com/2014/12/17/buhari-calls-pastor-adeboye-seek-his-blessing-announcing-osinbajo-running-mate

Now there are clear plans to islamtize nigeria becos Adeboye gave the christian vote to a jihadist.

http://dailypost.ng/2016/08/25/lied-plans-make-islam-nigerias-official-religion-can-replies-sultan-sokoto/

This cry of islamtization has been repeated recently.

Buhari receiving the black standard of jihad from Saudi cleric


But Christians were by Pastor Bosun Emmanuel, and Adeboye dismissed the man.
