"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."
Why should the spiritual leader of Muslims in Nigeria be the Sultan of Sokoto
(a religio-political figure with allegiance to the North)?
Religion is a potent tool that can be prostituted to enslave the mind of the people.

You have a chronic comprehension problem! I stated that he "may" have stolen some money for himself! Understood?
That said, just look at the meagre money OBJ met in the reserves? 3.5bil reserves was left for him yet he was able to leave a lot more than that and also, got our debt reduced to the minimum level before he left..
I don't believe Buhari met 30bil in the reserves because I don't think OBj woulda known the amount of reserves left for Buhari and even though he did, the debt incured by Jonathan was just too much before he left. This was the same man who had to borrow in order to pay the states allocation in his last months as a president. So, what are we taking about?

Na so o! We delta Igbo Muslims will make sure the interest of the North is preserved here in SS and the empty South Yeast.

Recolonize u say. Has there ever bin a time igbos colonize the Yorubas. igbos are d ones always blaming yorubas for their woes.. If u claim yorubas are hausa/fulani asslickers because they support Buhari govt then u must agree with me that hausa/fulani are asslickers of yorubas when Obasanjo ruled for 8yrs...

Read all the CONFUSION that you are throwing about up there.
This was the same man who had to borrow in order to pay the states allocation in his last months as a president. So, what are we taking about?
Your confusion and your LIES.
Research your facts before you embarrass yourself again in public.
|Re: The Coming Realignment In Yorubaland - By Femi Fani-kayode by diadem10: 1:34pm On Oct 06, 2016|
First sort out your chronic comprehension problem before disturbing my mention. Why should I believe the word from OBJ that Buhari met 30bil in the reserves when OBJ isn't the previous President before Buhari came in?
If I call you names now, the clown of a mod will come for my head..

You sound too frustrated to me... who's your father? I wanna know his achievements before I know who's the ediot as you said severally here between you, your family and Jonathan...
|Re: The Coming Realignment In Yorubaland - By Femi Fani-kayode by diadem10: 3:19pm On Oct 06, 2016|
Only a failure as yourself and that of your family tree would support a failure as Jonathan..
It's actually true of the saying which is 'can any good things come out of that particular region? Definitely no!
|Re: The Coming Realignment In Yorubaland - By Femi Fani-kayode by opribo(m): 3:22pm On Oct 06, 2016|
This man has candor, what he has said is an open truth only zombies will never agree with, those of us on the other side have known long ago that no matter what you do for the north and when i say the north i mean Sokoto, Kano, Borno, Jigawa, Taraba, Adamawa, Northern Kaduna they will never ever behave like Nigerians because they are not. They belong to the Chad, Niger, Sudan and all them arab countries in the up North. FFK is worthy of listening to.
|Re: The Coming Realignment In Yorubaland - By Femi Fani-kayode by diadem10: 3:26pm On Oct 06, 2016|
Who measures the corruption rating? Only a stupid fellow wouldn't know the highest corruption was practised under Jonathan reign.. Just look at his wife account.. Was it Patience that became the president or Jonathan?
His governors and cronies even attest to the fact that the eediot man, Jonathan has no perchance for saving, hence, the looting and sharing of Nigeria revenue. So what are we talking about?
That said, it's like people like you often keep their head in the mud not to know the situation we were at the time Obj became the president compared to Jonathan reign.
|Re: The Coming Realignment In Yorubaland - By Femi Fani-kayode by emerged01(m): 3:29pm On Oct 06, 2016|
SuperS1Panther:Change must begin with the Govt not us. I voted for Buhari,i won't deny it. Buhari has beginning to follow the attitude of the previous presidents. He is becoming the President of North. Up till now Buhari has not been able to deal with fulani herdmen over the killings of the innocent souls. I dislike him for that.
A good president step on toes. It's like Buhari we know he's dead. He should name the looters so that we will know who they are but up till now no names. And you want change to begin with me.

Fani Kayode you never loved this country, what you always preach is about ethnic prejudice, hatred, religious intolerance, why we must divide etc.But do you know that; California is the 6th largest economy in the world. It's economy is larger than that of France or Brazil. The little problem is that California is not a country. It is a State in the United States of America. It has little offshore oil, yet its economy is larger than States in the US that are famous for their oil reserves, like Texas. California generates much of its revenue from non-oil products. It found a way to absorb and domesticate much of the intellectual output from its premier university, Stanford University, into saleable products within its economy.
As a matter of fact, much of California's economy is built around Stanford University. So with this, Silicon valley developed. I'm sure you've heard of Silicon Valley at least once in your life. Now with Silicon Valley came companies like Apple, eBay, Cisco, Lockheed, Hewlett Packard (HP), Google, Netflix, Facebook, Oracle, Tesla...and the list goes on and on ad infinitum.These are multibillion-dollar companies. The yearly budget of any one of these companies might be larger than the entire yearly budget of, say for example, Akwa Ibom State. I'm taking about companies that are richer than countries. They are all in California. But that is just in the technology industry where the technologies and inventions spewing out of Stanford are caught midair and converted to money spinning enterprises.
But there is also the entertainment industry in California. Yes, Hollywood is in California. The US movies industry contributes about $504Billion to USA's GDP. Hollywood, as you know, contributes over 70% of that figure. Most iconic movie studios are in Hollywood. As a matter of fact, the "Big Eight" consisting of 20th Century Fox, Columbia Pictures, MGM (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer), Paramount Pictures, RKO Radio Pictures, United Artists, Universal Studios and Warner Bros are, or were, all in Hollywood. These again, are multi-billion dollar companies generating revenue for California.
Despite the above, California also thrives on agriculture. As at 2014, California had nothing less than 77,000 farms and ranches raking in about $55Billion in revenue yearly. It produces over 400 agricultural commodities, a large chunk of which it exports. It is the leader in producing exotic fruits in America. Its wine industry is unique. California wine is drunk with relish the world over. I used to drink some too.
This is just one State in America. You see, California actually had a choice of sitting back and striving to get a piece of the revenue generated from Texas' oil. It could have depended solely on Federal allocation to survive so that every month end, it will send its Commissioner of Finance to Washington DC to receive monthly allocation so that it can barely pay salaries of its workers and nothing more. Then San Francisco would resemble Ajegunle in Lagos. And there certainly would not be those beautiful sights and sounds that make California what it is today. But No, not California. Not America. California gives to the center and, because of its wealth, despises the idea of depending on it for survival. The Federal Government actually needs California to survive, not the other way round.
You see, America is structured in such a way that States must look inwards to exploit their wealth for the good of its citizens. There is no free lunch for the lazy States. There certainly is no commonwealth. But there is your wealth, if you can create it. Under American Federalism, you are the captain of your ship. But again, you are also the waves upon which the ship will sail. That is America. The local government, the government closest to the grassroot, is deliberately made the strongest level of government. Items like Variances (adaptation of state law to local conditions,) Public works (yes, public works!!), Contracts for public works, Licensing of public accommodations, Assessable improvements, Basic public services are all left for local county governments to handle. I can go on and on, despite all these and many more, Califonia and states alike never asked to disintegerate from the rest of America. Reason is that they know that their strenght lies in the unity of America as a whole and not how much revenue the gets from the center. You want to simpertise with Bayelsa state because they did not get Ambasadorial slot but in all the time even for the 16yrs your party PDP ruled, all the states never produced Ambasadors because of some diplomatic considerations. So why make it look like it all started with buhari. Amechi and River state as a whole under the leadership of your party and his brother Jonathan just because Amechi disagreed to be denied his victory at the governors forum election, yet every sensible and patriotic Nigerians preached peace because of the needed unity in this country. The Igbos you out of pretence claim that you are speaking for never said you should speak for them. After all you know how highly we regard and respect Ojukwu (Ikemba Nnewi), yet you went round last time bragging how you slept with the wife, do you know is a very big slap and disrespect to the entire Igbo race? We ignored you out of love for one country. And I think it is only appropriate and statesmanlike, if we should at all time preach love for one another and not hatred born out of political differences.

A man who capitalizes on past failures makes no head way in life.Even if FFK had a fair share of GEJ's administration,it doesn't stop him from stating the obvious.The North sees themselves as super power of Nigeria because the South isn't united and a man named FFK is trying to make us realize what unity is all about and you're against him.
Tinubu wasn't a saint when he single handedly destroyed PDP and people listened to him because the destruction of PDP was more important than any other problem they were facing as at then.I know FFK isn't a saint,but he made some fantanstic points in his write up.
The dominance of the North is just the sole reason for our backwardness in this country.Imagine where a blind man is leading a one eyed man,what would you expect.The North is the only problem Nigeria has.

Another nonsense post...
the south does not need to be united.. T:inubu was looking out for his own selfish interest and its about to backfire on him... He already has Lagos..
Lagos is richer than over 5 African countries combined.. All he has to do is continue to improve the IGR of Lagos by improving the infrastructure in Lagos but he got greedy and selfish, he didn't know that people are jealous of Lagos and will do anything to get Lagos.. Now his eyes have cleared..

Dear sir/ma, stop being foolish and naïve. Obasanjo achieved far more than jonathan. Where did you put telecommunication? Remember your foolish jonathan said he brought facebook for us. Facebook wouldn't have been possible for masses if not obasanjo that brought telecoms. Do you remember anything about debt pardon? Anti-corruptions wars? How about better security through out nigeria than what was obtainable under jonathan? What about savings? Financial prudency? Think! There has never been any better president in Nigeria since Obasanjo left.

modath:I'm hoping you would see this another way, I've never been a fan of FFK but the truth is we are under seige and at this point we remember we are yorubas first and foremost before party affiliations or ideology. Now we must stand side by side and fight for what is ours for ourselves and those to come.
|Re: The Coming Realignment In Yorubaland - By Femi Fani-kayode by jollymizzle(m): 8:06pm On Oct 06, 2016|
We are the Yoruba , we have to forget all that seek to drive wedges between us and party affiliation shouldn't matter . it should be the least of our concern whenever we sense a storm coming our way. Let every man or woman stand by each other even through our imperfections. If we must realign to further our course, Then that is what we must do wholeheartedly.

ogwumgbe:it has become glaringly clear now why there is no unity in the south, so the yoruba christains are a minority to the muslims? For some reason this greatly distresses me... Are yoruba christains not troubled with the steady islamization of their people..... ?
|Re: The Coming Realignment In Yorubaland - By Femi Fani-kayode by jollymizzle(m): 8:18pm On Oct 06, 2016|
ogwumgbe:I'm a Yoruba man to the core and I'm telling you I don't know what you mean by 'Yoruba muslim' I'm a Christian from a predominantly Christian family. Ask any Yoruba person close to you, almost every Yoruba family has at least one muslim/Christian/traditionalist in their family and we get along well. My grandmother was a Muslim. My mother converted to Christianity. So I don't know what you mean by that term. And I'm not aware of any religious crises in any part of Yoruba land, so please do not say what you don't know. We live together no matter the religion.
|Re: The Coming Realignment In Yorubaland - By Femi Fani-kayode by Shym3xx: 9:36pm On Oct 06, 2016|
Lol. I just want to clown around on this thread for a bit but I need answers lol.
But why they gotta do Javadon or whatever his tag is, the greatest Yoruba leader ever, and the man greater than Awolowo like this? Lol. They fvcked this guy up so bad, FFK, of all people, is the one writing sermons on his behalf lool.
The amala people got in premature owanbe frenzy, crowning someone who isn't as astute as the make-believe projected prematurely as the greatest - while dragging the greatest one's name in the mud in a disrespectful and blasphemous way - utterly shameful. And when the time came to use astuteness to win a battle within a structure you created - you were found wanting lol.
In a competitive space, you always have to be proactive and whatever first step ya opponent takes, 9 out of 10 times, always determine his next step and the end game. Buhari and the Northern oligarchs showed you their cards with their first move. The whole alignment thing should have happened after that, with emphasis on the agreed partnership and playing ya own cards to even everything. Those fools just sat there feasting on amala while getting punked. But now that they have also lost the party, they're looking for realignment - hysterical.
Clowns! Awolowo is shaking his head in his grave cos he didn't father these clowns lol.

I overed one Yoruba guy saying the other day that Yoruba man will succeed buhari, Yoruba's hate everything that came from the east... if Igbo's can support obj against one of their own Dr Alex why not Yoruba's atleast for once support an Igbo cause, they can't do it because they preferred licking Hausa's/Fulani's wound... the real saboteurs are westerners
