Let's be a bit logical here. The then middlebelt knew what they would be up against had they not joined other tribes to fight against secessionist country, Biafra.
If the northern minorities are left just with Hausa/Fulanis in our country, the latter would wipe them out and take over their lands in the twinkling of the eye. So they needed major tribes like the Igbos and Yorubas to help curtail the excesses and instill fear in Hausa/Fulani people

arrestdarrester:It has come out. So it's not about herdsmen or boko insurgency. I almost got personal with a colleague who was anti one-Nigeria few days back. He read this episode and showed it to me this morning, I wasted no time in tendering my apologies. Based on what this highly educated professor has just unveiled, a lot of apologies should be flying around by now. We really need to scrap and renegotiate this big business called Nigeria.

Everything in Nigeria does not revolve around the years 1967-70. Those were undoubtedly 3 significant years in our history but our whole existence is not tied down there.

So much falsehood flying around here.
Its just so sad to see that a lot of people here don't even know about the history of this country.And they even believe the hoax that tiv's were conquered by the fulani's.
If that happened would there have been anything like "christian majority" in the south?
Had the tiv's not fought and resisted usman danfodio,the entire Nigeria would probably be Islamic at this time.
People should stop spreading lies and falsehood.
Let it be noted that at no point in their history have the tiv's been subordinates of the fulanis.It is deceptive,misleading and totally a hoax.

Go back and read your history properly......
The sokoto caliphate was in the 18th century and not the 10th or 11th century like you claim. The kwararafa kingdom existed between the 14th and the 18th Century. The Tivs arrived present day Nigeria in the 18th century after the collapse of the kwararafa kingdom.
Idomas were part and parcel of the kwararafa kingdom and were in fact at Wukari (Akpoto section). By the late 18th Century after the fall of the kwararafa Kingdom, the Idoma Chiefs owed their authority to the Aku Uka (The Jukun head) who in turn paid tribute to the Bornu empire.
The kwararafa tribes (Jukum, Alago, Igala, Idoma, Etulo etc) had long interactions and intermarried with the Hausas, the Bornus, the Nupes and the Fulanis long before the Tivs even set foot in Present day Nigeria.
History is what it is......You can't change that!!

But don't forget your elders has zoned their presidential candidate to Atiku another Fulani man and bokoharram.
First and foremost, Buhari has nothing to do with bokoharram and he's not a religious bigot like Igbo's. if you don't know. Also before he became president, he promised to defeat the deadly sects known as "Bokoharram " when he gets to power as a result he won the support of USA president Barrack Obama and he has reduced the terrorist attack to their bearest minimum unlike the embecile Jonathan.
The Yorubas tested Jonathan twice and he failed then why should we continue to toll d path of doom.
Conclusively, pls educate your people on how to vote for a credible and formidable leaders and put sentiment, hatred, bigots, tribalism etc aside for the betterment of this country.

Nigerian railway to Maradi in Niger Republic? No way!
8 JAN 2018
By chereome Nnanna
For some reasons unknown to me, Nigerians are no longer paying attention to things that matter about the way they are being ruled. They no longer pay attention to some of the things their rulers say. Otherwise, a strange item in President Muhammadu Buhari’s New Year Day speech should have brought millions of Nigerians to the streets in angry protests.
When first I listened to the President making that speech I could not believe my ears. So I had to wait until the mainstream media published the full text of the speech, and there it was in cold print: “Negotiations are also advanced for the construction of other railway lines, firstly from Kano to Maradi in Niger Republic passing through Kazaure, Daura, Katsina, Jibia to Maradi”.
Maradi is the third largest city in Niger Republic with a predominant Hausa/Fulani population. It is about an hour’s drive through a bumpy road from Jibia, the border town near Buhari’s hometown, Daura, in Katsina State. When I went to cover the 2007 presidential election in which Buhari ran on the All Nigerian People’s Party, ANPP, in 2007 and the late President Umaru Yar’ Adua of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, I had joined a team of journalists that went to Daura to visit Buhari for an interview. We also monitored the election in Jibia, which is a border town with Niger.
I realised how easy it was for people from the two countries to cross the rickety border post manned by a man dressed virtually in rags. He only smiled when we decided to set foot on Niger Republic soil. Indeed, it may interest Nigerians to know that Daura Emirate stretches deep into Maradi and Zinder Departments in Niger Republic. During the 2015 election, there were reports of thousands of people from Niger Republic crossing the porous borders to vote in an election that was none of the business of their country. In the far North Nigerian electoral officials hardly ask questions about the eligibility of voters. That is why you see millions of under-aged voters voting, and at the end the polls are declared “free and fair”.
Once Buhari achieved his life’s ambition of matching Olusegun Obasanjo’s feat as a former military ruler who became an elected President of Nigeria, his visit to Niger Republic became the first of the 22 foreign trips he made within 11 months before he was slowed down by ill-health. He was received by the President and people of Niger like a triumphant son back from the battlefield. Niger Republic President, Mahamadou Issoufou, gave him a white horse and a golden sword. In fact, Issoufou, in 2016, emblazoned Buhari’s photograph beside his own on vehicles during political campaigns.
I went into all this to let you know that the planned new Nigerian railway network from Kano through Daura and Jibia to Maradi in Niger Republic is a selfish project that has nothing to do with other Nigerians like you and me. Even though a president’s oath of office indicates: “….that I will not allow my personal interest to influence my official conducts or my official decisions…”, Nigerian presidents and governors brazenly disregard their oaths of office and oaths of allegiance and divert the state’s or nation’s resources to their pockets, and after that, to massively develop the infrastructures of their hometowns no matter how remote such places are.
For me, if Buhari had merely sought to connect his hometown, Daura, and even Jibia to the new national railway network, I would not have minded it too much, though it violates the principle of economic viability and bankability, which the largely borrowed funds will emphasise in order that we repay the debts in good time. The same logic that led the British colonialists to pass the Eastern rail line through Eha Amufu in today’s Enugu State and terminate it at Nguru in today’s Yobe State and pass the Western line through Kaura Namoda in today’s Zamfara State can also be adduced to extend the new rail network through Daura to Jibia, even if a president did not hail from there.
The offensive aspect is extending the railway 55 kilometres into a foreign land just because the President considers the region as part of his hometown.
When the Minister of Transport, Mr Rotimi Amaechi, was called upon by critics of this unviable extension of our railway to defend it, his response was vacuous and of very little use as a justification. By the way, the proposed new rail addition from Kano through Kazaure, Daura and Jibia to Maradi covers a whopping distance of 806 kilometres, which is more than the distance from Lagos to Abuja (779km) and Lagos to Calabar (770km). It is important for Nigerians to know the scale of the rail line and the amount of borrowed and oil money we are going to dump on this aspect of the project just to gratify the personal whims of the President.
Hear the Minister: “We realised that we had competitors for our landlocked neighbours, competitors like Ghana, Togo and even Benin Republic. Our landlocked neighbours are importing through these countries because we don’t have rail lines that go to them. So, to address the situation Mr President approved a rail line that will go to Maradi in Niger. But that rail line which will come from Kano to Maradi in Niger must pass through some cities. So the rail line passes through Kazaure, and then Daura before proceeding to Jibia and then Maradi”.
The questions the President and the Minister should answer are: Did “our competitors” like Ghana, Togo and Benin Republic build rail lines into Burkina Faso, Niger and Mali and thus stole the “competition” from Nigeria? The answer, obviously, is no. Secondly, why don’t we also extend the favour to Chad and Burkina Faso if indeed we need their patronage? Thirdly, what “competition” is Amaechi referring to? How much do Ghana, Togo and Benin Republic make from imports that our landlocked neighbours route through their countries that makes it enviable which Nigeria should scramble to snatch?
It would be a different ball game if Nigeria and Niger Republic signed a memorandum of understanding to share the cost of the rail line, each country taking the financial responsibility to build the lines that run through their respective territorial jurisdictions.
One thing Nigerians must never forget is that we are borrowing heavily from China, Europe and the Breton-Wood institutions to build our standard gauge railway network. Repayment for the loans which outlay is not available to me at this moment will span decades. Most of us will be gone from the surface of the earth while the repayment will devolve to our children and possibly their children.
This is why we must never keep silent when the ruling party and leaders so brazenly violate the nation’s interests and abuse their offices by throwing projects from these loans into unviable remote hamlets, including hamlets in a foreign country that happens to be a part of their hometown.
I am very sure that our National Assembly, especially the very responsive Senate, will thoroughly examine this railway plan and its funding and protect the interests of all Nigerians, including those of their future generations. Sanitising the implementation of this railway plan will be a prime opportunity to prove that this country belongs to all of us. Nobody, no matter how highly placed, will be allowed to take what belongs to all of us for himself and his kinsmen alone.
We are in a democracy, not a military autocracy. Even if we must accommodate Daura and Jibia to make Buhari happy, the rail line must NEVER be extended an inch into a foreign soil.

Nuisance begets nuisance – Kukah
January 17, 2018 News
Anyone who thinks the Biafra agitation is a nuisance and irritating should know that it is not the collective aspiration of all Igbos but especially that no one has the monopoly of nusinace. Nuisance begets nuisance. When you stay with potash loaders you too will share in their dusty hair. It is in this country that the same standards are not held against all. Some can get away with anything but others cannot get away with something. I shudder at those who blame the agitators for agitating. Everyone knows what is good for them. If you don’t know what is good for you then shut up and don’t obstruct those who know what is good for them. If I have my way I will cease to be a Nigerian because there is no sense of nationhood. Those who have leverage over others use it to oppress them. Otherwise how can you explain the audacious impunity of a certain section of this country. They can intimidate everybody even a sitting president and get away with it. When GEJ was president he was literally harassed by this same people until they sent him packing and we thought they will be appeased. But a las we were mistaken!
Now how do I love a country where a murderous terrorist group like the herdsmen acclaimed even internationally as deadly is being openly defended by a govt. that wants my loyalty. Do you know as I make this comment, a first class Chief of Bokkos LGA in plateau state was murdered by a certain group of Fulanis almost a year now and no one has been arrested not to talk of prosecution; there are many villagers in my parish who cannot go to farm again except to farm their backyard because their farms have been forcefully annexed by their Fulani murderers; that in Bokkos a wife and a daughter can be taken away right before her husband or father and be repeatedly raped then released at the convenience of the barbaric Fulani tribesmen and no one dares talk; police will advise you to go and settle the matter through dialogue? I want independence from a country where terrorists are embraced and agitators are terrorized.
At the slightest excitement Hausa or Fulani man can kill you and get away with it; it has happened and continues to happen but when you gear up to defend yourself because security will not, then you are caught by the same security who will lecture you on how to be peaceful and law abiding. This country will end unless there is justice for all. Rubbish! I hate the lie that Nigeria is. Let’s say the truth and die but it is what will set us free. Nigeria is negotiable to me the oppressed even if it’s not to the oppressor and that is normal.

Its for the greed and selfishness of some of the leaders like akume and the immediate past Tor tiv that the tivs have found themselves in this situation.

Tivs didn't enter Nigeria in the 18th century but much earlier than the 10 century.
The Kwararafa kingdom existed in the 10th - 11th century and was never under the Borno Kanem empire.
The Kwararafa kingdom has nothing to do with the Hausa Fulani people but instead, destroyed Kano in 1000AD.
