The were the most prosperous empire in the region for a short time. The empire eventually went into decline like the normally do. Lol it's hilarious how a man that's been dead for centuries can cause this mich emotional distress. He just a typical warlord you read about in the history books. Fact is he conviced the people following him to rebel against the stste because the kingdom weren't saints themselves.
Dan Fodio himself is alright in terms of kings. He's wasnt even especially brutal compared to his counter parts in history or region. Its funny you want to paint him as the devil for beating expandion hausa empires. Those war mongers were just too weak to stand against him.

Fulani are backbiters. You keep them as guests and they plot your death and how to own your land.
Never again! Fodio, their ancestor was a terrorist. They learnt from him.

It is naive to say they were weak, the Fulanis are masters at attaching themselves to their host and then deposing of them in the classic parasite style, if those kings were brutal, every fulani would be killed on arrival. But they are useful fools, who are easily charmed by words like Buharideens.
The advantage dan fodio had and all fulanis have is that their barbarity is often underestimated, it's hard for people to understand what they are capable of, especially since they are always champions of sharia and wahhabi islam.
People assume they are human until the killings starts.
The only time Sokoto was a prosperous city was during the slave trading era, and you can guess the reason. Like I said do some damn research

First they used to teach Nigerian history to kids, then they abolished it so that children would not ask why Fodio turned on a God fearing and accommodating sarkin Mohammed Rumfa of Gobir who harbored him for years.
No question Fadion was an illegal alien when he came to Hausa land, but he was more tricky and smarter after his education in Agadev, but he lacked morals just our current president, justifying every criminal action with some flimsy religious bias.
If you want to know Nigerian history go study it outside the Nigerian educational system in unbiased way

Your conclusion about Fodio leading citizens of Gobir to riot against their own king beats all reason and imagination.
Imagine an alien coming into sokoto today, and somehow convincing present day citizens to riot against the sultan.
First, you can see all sorts of logistical problems with that, and finally you should ask where was the king when all these were happening.
The truth was he killed the king, and somehow convinced some citizens that he was fighting for a purer form of islam, same way Buhari is locking up his opponent, because he is fighting corruption. Yet some citizens didn't accept Fodio for a long time, and those he simply murdered in the name of islam. Yumfa, the son of the sarkin Gobir was on of his victims.
Having accumulated power and resources, Fodio sent his cousin to Kano to replicate the same technique, and it worked, because he was a well educated strategist who understood how to confuse the masses with religious.
BTW, Alimi used the same technique in Illorin to subdue the greedy general working the northern borders of Oyo empire called Afonja. That's why Illorin has a Fulani emir today instead of an Oba.

The king made an illegal allien an advisor. Yunfa got lectures from illegal instead of expelling him? Did you logically think about this arguement.
Oh well the better military won and the rest is history. Btw I never schooled in nigeria. I've never seen the law stopping any tier of government from teaching it currently. The states stopped simply because they didnt care to fund it themselves.
Oh well you can make all the excuses in the book dan fodia simply lead better militarily. If he was able to conqure all the near by kingdoms in such a short time he was simply better. They were dumb and full of hubris even after their neighbors were conquered?
Lol so sokoto was wealthy during danfodio era. He was ruling during slave trade. You contradicted your own point.
|Re: Usman Dan Fodio: Founder Of The Sokoto Caliphate by StaffofOrayan(m): 10:59pm On Feb 26|
The sultan lives in a gold house but Sokoto is one of the poorest places on the planet
That is not wealth, that is just a man that understands the psychology of poverty.
I can already guess you are fulani and you grew up in the south because dan fodios region is too hot for you,

Lol you clowns shift the goal post anytime you start arguing foolishly. The Dan Fodio going have you children born with PTSD becsuse the exploits centuries prior. Lol your blaming dan fodio for the current year problems. Lol you're likely blaming luggard for you're country being third world 60 years after independence as well. You're at least a funny clown.
|Re: Usman Dan Fodio: Founder Of The Sokoto Caliphate by StaffofOrayan(m): 11:21pm On Feb 26|
There is nothing funny about the state of the North being headed by Fulanis
It's actually sad that barbarians can be allowed to rule a peaceful people like Hausas that's the tragedy of it all.
I have seen threads where u support Ruga and write long incoherent epistles on why Amotekun must not stand. Who can blame you? You are just standing up for your brothers.
Did you know the British war against the barbaric fulani was to put an end to the slave trade?
Guess they told you it was to stop the spread of Islam?
Don't worry you would keep learning from me and what's more, it is totally free!

Yawn the peaceful hausa living in the weak warring empires. They lost stop crying. If the want change today is new day. Go up north drown those devils in your tears pussy.
Lol you're also adapt at strawmen since you cant argue facts well. Btw not against Amotekun. I've wrote msny times constitution should be amended for police decentralization along with prisons. I wasnt for ruga for economic reasons. The states thst want to do it are free to as I said. Dimwits can't understand nuance points because slongeering is what they're used to.
Lol everyone knows the britsh fought to end slavery in general. Good job captain obvious.
|Re: Usman Dan Fodio: Founder Of The Sokoto Caliphate by StaffofOrayan(m): 11:57pm On Feb 26|
I think the weak people are the barbarians that always wage war of terror on people who don't even realize their 2 faced strangers are planning to overthrow them, like modern day Fulanis. Weak people can't evolve, they are base animals.
Ruga is dead fortunately, people are waking up to the foolishness that is fulani and realizing they are a curse to west africa and the civilized world
Amotekun on the other hand stand gidigba, ready for the beast of no nation!

Lol so the warring hausa rulets are were dumb and weak. Oh well it sucks that's how history played out. Lol you're crying more than the bereaved. They very intermarried and cool with eachother. The got over their beating but you're still hurt centuries after the fact.
NLTP replaced ruga clown. Plateau and other northern states signed on. The southern ones simply said no like last time. You'll see updates in the news soon enough.
These states should also have prisons for their inmates. Hopefully that's addressed for practical purposes.
|Re: Usman Dan Fodio: Founder Of The Sokoto Caliphate by StaffofOrayan(m): 12:20am On Feb 27|
Cool with each other, now that's a good joke, I guess all that killer herdsmen and 'bandits' are family tussle? Hehehe
But you get the drift, whenever a people are at war, the Fulanis move in, that's why amotekun scared miyetti allah and co, such unity shook the herders,
There won't be Ruga in the North, You can take that to the Islamic Bank, Fulanis never look to better anybodys lot, remember they are parasites!
|Re: Usman Dan Fodio: Founder Of The Sokoto Caliphate by Blue3k2: 12:27am On Feb 27|
You're a clown did the hausas stop marrying fulani? Have they expelled them out of the country. Did the not vote in mass for a fulani president twice. The still have fulani traditional leaders. Yes they're cool with them dont act dense.
Lol NLTP already replaced ruga. The difference is pretty minor. Niger state already earmed 45,000 hectares for ruga. Zamfara already earmed land. I guess you're taken by surprise when it kicks off. Bury your head in the sand.
|Re: Usman Dan Fodio: Founder Of The Sokoto Caliphate by StaffofOrayan(m): 12:42am On Feb 27|
That is the tragedy of the Hausa's
Isn't it sad that in their beggarlike state, they still dig their own graves? Despite this, the fulani still massacre them because they can't live in a civilized society.
Those states you mentioned are partly controlled by bandits, governors pay billions of naira to keep a fragile peace, villages are still being sacked, I wonder how 45,000 hectares filled with cattle in a very hungry and destabilized region is supposed to work, but hey people believe in santa clause
|Re: Usman Dan Fodio: Founder Of The Sokoto Caliphate by Blue3k2: 1:29am On Feb 27|
There's no reason pity them or cry more than the bereaved like your doing. If they want to make changes do so. Lol you have a million excuses for the region Its pathetic. It's either they tackle their issues or live with it. Keep pretending the fulani are their issue instead of their own actions. You sympathize with weaknesses afterall.
|Re: Usman Dan Fodio: Founder Of The Sokoto Caliphate by StaffofOrayan(m): 6:04am On Feb 27|
Your claim was dan fodio saved Hausa's from their wicked kings,
And I'm telling you he was just another barbaric fulani man, like buhari
|Re: Usman Dan Fodio: Founder Of The Sokoto Caliphate by Blue3k2: 4:00pm On Feb 27|
Wow you have really hard time with nuance points. I said people joined his cause because the government was also oppressive. Saying Dan Fodio was wicked doesn't make the other kings saints. You're trying make out victims when they're not.
I compared dan Fodio to Mohammed and Genghis Khan. Saying he's barbaric is trite since every conqueror is. You dont overthrow people without force. How do think empires expand.
|Re: Usman Dan Fodio: Founder Of The Sokoto Caliphate by myobjective: 4:30pm On Feb 27|
It was a case of a palace coup since most of Hausa city state are volatile to begin with. All that is history now since the Hausa and Fulani are brother that loves to live together in peace.
|Re: Usman Dan Fodio: Founder Of The Sokoto Caliphate by myobjective: 4:35pm On Feb 27|
I don't know why southerners with close to zero knowledge about core north demography always like to romanticize the Hausa and dehumanised the Fulani when both group are one and the same. An average Hausa from the north west will die protecting the interest of the Fulani. I'm not saying that is a good or bad thing but that is how they want to live.

SUMMARY OF ACCOUNT
1. Every Empire has its rise which was invoked by a person or group of people. Eg. Babylonian, Roman, Ottoman and British Empire.
2. Empire is expanded through recruitment of followers and soldiers and costly wars.
3. Every conquered city will be imposed with the belief, culture, teaching and lifestyle of the conquerer.
4. Political decisions are made which sharpens the society and the ones that preceded it.
5. Lastly, must be fall of empire which is caused by external invader, recession, internal civil war, and regional ruler.
quote me if I'm wrong.
|Re: Usman Dan Fodio: Founder Of The Sokoto Caliphate by Blue3k2: 5:05pm On Feb 27|
They're childish busy bodies. The supposed victims hardly write about it funny enough. The fact is they're culturally similar and have similar political voting patterns.
Lol you clowns are mentally challenged. Instead watching video you're attacking strawmen arguments nobody made. Who claimed he hausa weirdo?
