Balarabe: Why The North Has Never Allowed Nigeria To Have Peace, Unity, Progress by sirequity(m): 11:50am On Apr 18, 2017
BALARABE Musa, former Governor of old Kaduna State and elder statesman, has revealed why Northern Nigeria has never allowed the country to have Peace, Unity as well as Progress.

Musa said the reason is because the region is academically lagging behind and will be needing at least 40 years to catch up with the southern region in terms of educational development .

The former governor said this in an interview with Punch Newspaper while reacting to the claim by the Emir of Kano , Alhaji Lamido Sanusi , who described northern Nigeria as being the poorest region in the country and in dire need of attention.

Musa said the North was a troubled child of the country because of the misrule of political leaders and a skewed system of deprivation left by the colonialists in the North.

He said , " The North is truly behind , but it is not only the North that is in trouble . The whole country is in trouble . The North is not another country . The problem in the North, as far as education is concerned, is a gap which it inherited from the British colonialists . And I have estimated that this gap in educational development between northern Nigeria and the South is a 40 - year gap .

“ This means that the North is behind the South in educational development for at least 40 years . This shows that even if the North wakes up today and takes a revolutionary step to bridge the gap , it will take the North 40 years .

“ You know the position of educational development in national growth . This is the reason why the North is a troubled child and has never allowed Nigeria to have peace , unity and progress . It is not possible for the northern people with this unequal human capacity to participate actively in their affairs . They will always be the source of trouble .

“ I believe this problem can be tackled by the government bringing a free , compulsory primary and secondary education throughout Nigeria . The government can afford it. I think this talk of ‘North’ , ‘North’ should stop . The whole country should come together and find solutions to these problems.

“ We have had many presidents from the North but what benefits have they done to the North? Presidents also came from the South - West and South - South . In what ways did those presidents benefit their regions ? None . Therefore , we need to sit down as a country and tackle our problems collectively .”

The same north that has 93% illiteracy rate takes up 95% of all appointments and political posts in zoogeria unchallenged.

And what are the 'sophisticated' nylon-shiitt flingers of Eweduland doing? moping like morons and blaming IPOB for all the woes bedevilling their zoogeria since Lugard drank his last whiskey. grin

We cannot tackle the problems as one because should a southerner dare involve themselves in the north they will be attacked.

What happened to the Almajiri schools built by the previous administration? Did some useless cretin not claim that they were too expensive to run despite them wasting even more money on pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia?

It was 40 years GAP in 1960, It is now 80 years gap in 2017.

GEJ who was closing it for them, they refused and said the preferred certificate-less leader who was never interested in educating himself or the region.

Yes, as long as Nigeria remains one, the North will remain a parasite on the rest because of all leaders in the North, only SLS is ready to face the truth.

Guess this man is just been modest with the 40years he said because he was also a part of the problem. For me I think that Northern Nigeria is 80 years behind

What is the literacy rate in Atiku's hometown?

Balarabe is right. Then again, I strongly believe religion has played a vital role in the backwardness of the region. Truth is, the people would be 'liberated', particularly in their ways of certain religious practices should they get education. 'Boko Haram' comes to mind.

That's why we said restructure. But what did they say? No. Let everyone go back to his root and develop it. Pay tax to the centre. They said no. Lets continue living in self deception of this one is working, that one is working. We must sit down and negotiate our coexistence. Anyone who says the unity of Nigeria isn't negotiable should please answer this question, who negotiated our unity from the onset?

dem regular trademark embarassed

the Northern parasites are it again...... when it fit them, they jest about it casually that they indeed are reapers in chiefs.....
these are folks u scantily find doing well in pursuit of hardcore education but carves a whooping 80% of all federal appointments that requires good educational qualification to get by. they create for themselves:

quota system
federal character
Educationally Low developed states
catchment areas
Nomadic education Fund (without a kobo contribution from sales of cows) strictly for fulanis
landmass ( arid or near deserts useless land)
population ( open to fellow Hausafulanis from Niger Rep, Chad, CAR, Cameroon, Senegal, Mali, Guinea, Gambia, etc)
Ecological fund
Diseases of all kinds
drought
Islamic Terrorism
Raping/forceful marriage of Christian Kids as brides for Pedos amongst them
Zero Contribution to the nations Coffers
Evil Tendencies towards the south whenever power goes to the Muslims Norths

What did he do whilst he was governor?

Education AND birth control needs to be made mandatory in the North. It's a shame having so many children begging on the streets in 21st century.

They are finally waking up from sleep.
All these northern leaders admitting to their backwardness ? A modern miracle.

It doesn't change much though...
There is too much anger and hatred for northern ruling class due to their greed and avarice.

2019 will be a bombshell.

Zoning will be discarded, Christians will mobilize, the middle belt will defect, the Ibo's, Ijaws and other nationalities will make their voices heard
Buhari's sorry a..ss will be dumped.
It is very likely, that a southerner will emerge as president.

Enough of these buffoons

This is one northerner I respect so much, he always speak the truth as a patriotic and detribalized Nigerian.

The problem is the northern elites, they use northern illiteracy as a tool for political gains. The entire nation need to sit to fight for true federalism in order for each state to be OYO!
