As usual, Col. Umar does not shy away from speaking up in support of what is right and equitable.

Why won't they vote people like this into power?

Because Umar is one of the rear exception from the North. And he was lucky to be a direct descendant of Uthman Dan Fodio otherwise he wouldn't have been 'able' to confront IBB on why, he, IBB annullled June 12 election. He is in the mould oF Ribadu.
BTW, his opinion is NOT radical according to that lazy journalist. He is just speaking the facts as they stand. Deputy Governors to 2 Govenors, and the only reason why they may not like to see him as the Governor is that he is a Christian? what a load of bulls from these Islamic fundamentalist

Indeed. Umar has always stood out as a detribalised and radically progressive Northerner. The Kingmakers will have a lot to lose if the likes of Umar gain powerful positions because it will no longer be "business as usual for them . We will not see Umar as a leader until Nigerians agitate for his emergence. The current system is fond of mediocre, corrupt and pliant politicians who will ensure that , to the detriment of Nigeria, the status quo is maintained.
Bankole is the perfect example. One would hope that , given his young age, he would emotionally connect with the angst of Nigerians for a better life . Instead we can see that the system 'headhunted' him correctly.

They knew what they were doing. Corrupt crusaders will never select a honest person unless the honest person was undercover.
Umar has always been a forthright person but do we need him power? I would never want people like him and Soyinka in power for two reasons
1. Nigerians still need people like them on the sidelines to speak for the average man
2. Those bent on carrying corrupt practices will tarnish their names even if they have to set them up.

It's beautiful to know something this beautiful is happening in this country. Col. Umar have demonstrated the fairness and tolerance of a good moslem. I hope the Northerner, the muslems and most especially, the tribalised bigots (anti-northerner/Muslems) on NL are learning about what it takes to be beautiful.
Col Umar is Beautiful

Col. Abubakar Umar is a man after my heart, someone I respect so much for his fearlessness and objectivity. We need someone like him to lead the youths of this country and galvanise their votes to propel him to power just like Obama did in America. I am sure this can be done because he is a guy we all trust.

He can afford to be fearless due to his lineage. No minority from the north, especially IBB or Hausa would dare confront a direct descendant of Uthman dan Fodio. That would mean death!
|Re: Accept Christian Governor Or Relocate : Col. Umar ! by desgiezd(m): 9:55pm On May 22, 2010|
^^^ That Col. Umar is fearless is his nature and not as a result of her lineage. Afterall there are many people from that same lineage who are very comfortable with the status quo and would rather remain cocooned in their comfort zone while other Nigerians perish.
