Don’t Give Igbos Biafra, Dahiru Bauchi Tells FG by NaijaEfcc: 4:47am On Jun 21, 2017
The famous Muslim cleric and a principal figure in the Tijjaniyya sect, Sheikh Dahiru Usman Bauchi has called on the federal government not to give the Igbo’s the biafra nation, rather sit them on the same table along other ethnic nationalities to chart ways out for the economic prospect and peaceful coexistence of a united Nigeria.

Speaking to newsmen in Kano, yesterday, Sheikh Bauchi said the strength in Nigeria’s nationhood gave it edge over other smaller African nations, with its huge population making it haven for investors and partner to every nation of the world in-terms of economic benefit and social cohesion.

According to him,those agitating for the biafra nation weren’t born when the civil war took place and neither of them can tell what would be the gain if another civil war breaks out in a nation of over a 150 million human population.

He explained that Nigeria’s prosperity will be possible when both parties sit on the same table of nation building with each party doing what suits his culture, tradition and religion.

“Let’s avoid the situation where people of different religion and cultural belief system eats from the same pot, as it will discriminate against another considering that each came from entirely different background and choices, saying such a practice was the bane of all the agitations,” he said.

Sheikh Bauchi called on the youth in the northern part of the country to sheath their swords for the ultimatum to the Igbos and advised that” let’s not resort to similar protest to that of the biafra agitators of hatred, inciting, humiliating and unguarded utterances.”

“I dream of a Nigeria where all sit down on the same table and eat from what is before him; for the Hausa/Fulani to drink his forage and eat ram/sheep meat, Igbo’s or any tribe of the Christians belief to drink his wine and eat pig or dog meats, not to cook all in the same pot and serve all plates. That’s unworkable!”, Bauchi said.

He, however,called on the Shi’ite sect to desist from confrontational approach when exercising their religious freedom which caused the recent death of their members and the continued detention of their leader, Malam Ibrahim El-Zakzaky.

Dahiru Bauchi urged the security agency responsible for the detention of El-Zakzaky to release the Shi’ite leader.

This cleric is a joke, and I can dash him some bedsheets to wear around his head and neck. He should be calling on Buhari to resign, but of course, he reasons like a Nigg.a would from black Africa's Ni.gga Area

I disagree with the bolded. We have over 200 different tribes. Some of the things that suit our different cultures may be totally barbaric and even pose a threat to the wellbeing of others. How then can we support such ?

Some of those barbaric cultures include killing of innocent citizens and burying them with a dead chief or king. Just like the case of the previous ooni of life and his abobaku. This happened in Rivers state also when so many people were murdered and buried alongside the previous Eze Gbaka Gbaka. Same thing happened in Benin too.

Nigeria= Nig.ga Area for Ni.ggas
Biafra
Oduduwa
Arewa all equal natural and original Black African nations.

You go to England or Japan or Mexico and say you are a Nigerian, they know, without having been to Africa, that you must be some type of dumb Ni.gga, even if you have an MD education.

Could have been summarized as RESTRUCTURING....

Moreover the headline is totally different from the body..

Dahiru usman seeks restructuring.. could have been less tense, more appropriate, less domineering and more peaceful..

Hear him

“I dream of a Nigeria where all sit down on the same table and eat from what is before him; for the Hausa/Fulani to drink his forage and eat ram/sheep meat, Igbo’s or any tribe of the Christians belief to drink his wine and eat pig or dog meats, not to cook all in the same pot and serve all plates. That’s unworkable!”, Bauchi said.


This might work, if the people whom you hope to share the country with have the same level of enlightenment/education as you.
If they had the same level of tolerance to other's religious belief and inclination.
If they don't see the slaughter of fellow humans as the most convenient way of settling a dispute.
If they don't have the mentality that the country is theirs, and they were born to rule.
If they don't see people from the south as mere vassals to be tolerated.

The unworkable notion of serving everyone from same pot or eating from same plate is exactly what the country has been practicing.
Since they have neglected every other sector in favor of crude oil (the pot) which comes from the south, and also eat from same plate (oil wealth) how do they hope this union will work?
Each region can get its own pot, prepare and serve its own meal the way their culture, orientation and religious views permits them. Good fences make good neighbors.

Let everyone keep paying lip service to "One Nigeria". We all know that its not working, and will never work in a thousand years. Let's all sit down and have a referendum as to the way to go. I can boldly tell you that the few people who feel any atom of loyalty to this country are those feeding fat on its resources.

Emmm....that last statement I made was false. Even those feeding on its resources are not in any way loyal. They just hope the facade of "one Nigeria" will continue only for what they're going to steal from it. You won't rob the country and its masses blind if you have any loyalty. Yes, I'm talking about the polithiefcians.
