#iamnorth The Bitter Truth We Northerners Should Accept. by fk002: 10:05am On Mar 03, 2019
I am not here to rub some peoples ego.


I noticed that a certain phrase "I am North" has been circulating after the election, saw that some people have been bragging with it while mixing the positivity and negativity of the phrase without giving in much thought.

I don't have problem with the positive aspect of it, my problem is with the opposite, it really baffles me to see how some of us are celebrating something that is not worthy of celebration such as Almajiri system of education, begging, other petty jobs etc. We ought to condemned the aforementioned problems, we should cover our face in shame rather than bragging with it the earlier we start calling a spade by its name the better for us, I think is better to face our fear rather than shy away from it if we didnt face it definitely it will continue to eat deep down like cancer.


Sincere speaking In some aspect I like the ambition of our southern counterpart their zeal and positive thinking. You will never see them begging in northern streets like our folks are doing down south.The annoying thing is how the beggars and the almajiris thinks that they are entitled in whatsoever you wanted to give them out of righteousness.

Few days ago I watched a video trending, how a Southerner was mocking a northern begger, I felt indifferent about the video because they are the ones that chose to be object of mockery, you will see a healthy man begging in the streets is it laziness or what? The question we should ask ourselves is are there not old men and physically challenge people in the South? Why are they not in the street begging? The funny thing is most of the beggars saved a lot of money throughout their begging career but they will not quit because they think it is an easy or quick money scheme, forgetting that they have lost their self worth and self esteem.

I know that some will agree with me while some may not, whichever maybe the case that's the bitter truth and we must face it.


Lastly to the southerners I like your ambition but i detest your lifestyle.


#Iam a productive North!

Nice write up but if I must say it is riddled with contradiction and leaves one with the impression that you suffer from a deep.rooted inferiority complex

You began your post saying you are not here to impress any southerner but ended up just comparing your people with the very same Southerners you declared you weren't out to impress

You then went onto rant about the obvious failure and lack of vision of the famed Almajiri system your people are known for yet you didn't state any clear alternative nor did you question the caste like system between the Hausa and the Fulani ?

You didn't question the obvious subjugation of the common folks by the northern elite ?

You went on to rant about laziness and question the absence of Southerners on the northern streets begging while ignoring the obvious origins of this issue which I mentioned above ?

It is either this write up was poorly thought out or you just ignored the obvious and set about outrightly comparing your people with Southerners

Hence this article should have been rightly named "Why I feel lower than the Southerners"

PS: charity begins at home, start in your locale up north reorientating your kin folks on the need to do away with this Almajiri system and embrace education.. not ranting on the internet

Encourage self sufficiency in your folks on the local radio stations in your local dialect and don't rant on nairaland ...

Grow up and be proactive

Like I said I am not here to impress Southerners,my comparison here is logical and selective. I selectively picked the good things I like about the south and leave the rest. What I mention in my first post are the things I like about southerners and one of the things I don't like about them is their lifestyle.


The reason I said "I am not here to impress southerners" is because some northerners will think I am trying hard to blend with southerners by rubbing their ego.

Again you come off as someone suffering from chronic inferiority complex .

If your issue is the life style of Southerners then why not title your article to show this?

I doubt anyone here cares about your opinion on the life style of Southerners as I assumed the northerns have a million issues to worry about other than how Southerners live?

The North is the region in the world still battling with River blindness , yellow fever , Lassa fever, meningitis, guniea worms , cholera , poliomyelitis, just to mention a few

The North is the only region that glorifies begging, caste system and illiteracy , terrorism, religious hate and extreme poverty.

Are you aware if Nigeria was divided away from the Northern that in less than 10 years the south would have developed to an extent that they would be granting the Northern part financial and food aid? And all your Northern elite would defect to the south in no time there by abandoning that region entirely?

So how with these myriad of issues do you find the time to worry how the Southerners live?

Again I tell you, that you have so many issues to worry about in your homestead.. forget about the life style of Southerners

I agree with you op. Begging should never be glorified But i think there is something you dont understand. The main motive for glorifying it is to hit back at the people especially Igbos who have been using it to degrade the northerners. We may be beggers, but we are better than cultists and drug traffickers. We are better than prostitutes and pirates. We are better than baby factory products and scammers.

People with the above issues have no moral right at all to mock a begger. Begging is much more honourable than those crimes.

A begger earns only when you decide to give alms to him unlike our eastern brothers that do 419, use panties, Steal at gunpoints, make illegal copies of someones intellectual property, etc. So in a way, We should be proud that we are into begging rather than robbery

All those ills you mentioned are pure attributes of yorubas but you forgot to add human sacrifices and rituals involving cutting of human heads(skull mining industry) which has turned to huge industry in the western Nigeria.

I'm from the South and we should stop this nonsense of always blaming the North for our own failures- that's the typical failures excuse.
The North is the North's problem.They're not the reason for your state or regions underdevelopment.Kiss the truth,we still would almost remain the same without them.
There are also negative aspect were we southerners take the lead.

How many baby factories and Drug traffickers do we have in Yoruba land?

Just like every other tribe, we Hausas have issues, Yorubas also have theirs but what makes us different is that we don't mock others unlike the Igbos. A Yoruba man will hardly call me an Almajiri (which means student) and i will rarely call a Yoruba man a skull miner. Why cant the Igbos emulate us?

Tinubu is a well known drug lord back then in America. There's no public officer in the SE with such background. Yorubas have baby factories all over yoruba land. There are ritual dens where human being are slaughtered and have their heads cut off in yoruba land. We even have yoruba terrorists that were caught in London 2yrs ago. Use your Google to confirm all of the above


A northerner opened a thread all you could do is to turn it to igbo thread. Are you alright?

Then I guess the Zamfara bandits, cattle rustlers, Abuja-Kaduna road bandits and kidnappers, Kaduna prostitutes, Kano prostitutes, AIDS ravaged Benue and Nassarawa, Kogi armed robbers, Kwara armed robbers, armed robbers operating around Abuja axis, and all the others too numerous to count are all Southerners kwo?

Keep deceiving yourself and glorifying poverty. I guess you do not also realize the origins of Boko Haram. Your mumu go soon do, no worry.
