They said if the igbos and other sourhern tribes should go, they will starve to death.

They said the Northerners are the people who provide food for the Nation.
Ok....my Country people, take a look at all this hungry people in the North.
If the Northerners really providing food for the Nation, how come they can not feed their fellow hungry Hausa Fulani on the streets??
how come USA, United Nations, European Union, Israel, China and Southern Nigeria send millions/billions of Dollar aids/food to the North


we all know Nigeria imports most of the food we eat

i should have commented earlier, but i pretty much didn't expect this thread to garner much attention.
The Op should know that the level of food production is low & that farmers are therefore not producing enough to go round.
The north has a high level of poverty such that the want for food is high; but the purchasing power of the "wanters" is low, in this case the farmer sells to those who can buy then exports the rest to other regions.
In simple analogy: ALHAJI grows rice in kebbi, but there is a low demand for his stock in the north due to the high level of poverty. ALHAJI supplies rice to those who can purchase in the north & transport the rest to Lagos where the demand for rice is so high that increasing the price would fetch him more profit.

@ OP, stop spewing trash here. The message is strictly for IGBOS alone. Igbos said they're tired of Nigeria so what is the point of forcing them again?

..If the north feeds the country,i suppose its fair to say..Igbos powers Nigeria's citizens automobiles through their spare parts dominance undecided

North does not produce food and share the proceeds with the rest of Nigeria whereas crude oil is taken from the south and the proceeds shared among every state in Nigeria. The two are different. Northern farmers sell their goods to Nigerians while the South doesnt sell crude to the rest of Nigeria. Worse cones to worse North would remain with their food while the rest of Nigeria start embracing agriculture and sell amongst themselves and crude oil sold in like form to the North just as the rest of Nigeria buys their food.

At the era referred in the silly postulation by the Almagiri named Ango Abdulahi, the northern region could not even build more than one secondary school.

They maybe right, there is something the Hausa's know that they think we don't know, as i earlier said we are watching them.

Some of you may have forgotten different places and states that mine gold in the north including FCT in Gwagwalada that was discovered lately, they have gold, mine it and sale.

If they encounter problem like land slide just like it happened during Jonathan regime, they will call on federal government for help, and Federal government will run to help them with federal government money which is Oil money.

Hmmmm, and you think they won't have confidence in their gold.

We are watching

They claimed about agriculture with unfertile land which uses fertilizers subsidized by Niger delta oil money.
Govt will put 50billion as input with oil money and the harvest is 50 million. Who is fooling who. They have nothing in the north.

Pls don't b deceive, no plant ever grow there without the help of fertilizer. If its lie I'm telling , why re their grasses dying and they chose to graze in the south. There is noting fertile about their land.
Instead they re hard working in farm.

I've stopped giving Hausa/Fulani beggars in the south money because they're responsible for the untold hardships in the country.

Come to South-South regions and see how they've littered the streets/markets with little children begging and embarrassing people on the roads.

You can't be feeding me when you depend on me to keep your farmers feeding and staying solvent.

If we get Biafra, we can decide to import foods from Central Africa countries on the interim with the money we currently use to buy them from the North, while we shore up our already vibrant agricultural system to meet up with our daily food needs.

The Northern farmers are the ones who would lose out, not us. As we can buy from any other source.

The North feeds no one.
