Hausa-fulani Sentiment On Igbo Prosperity In Northern Nigeria by Pecuman: 4:54pm On Jul 17, 2020


I feel like the Igbos of Nigeria are stuck in a Catch.

If they go North to create businesses, they will be seen as dominators and economic conquerors.

If they stay home and develop their home, they would be seen as thieves and suspecious, needed special laws to curb their power. They would be also seen as Greedy and unwilling to share their wealth.

I am reminded of the Jews of Early Modern Europe, hated for their growth in wealth even in adverse conditions by a peasantry that could not understand any form of economic development that wasn't extractive.

Federate this thing already, let every region be Autonomous give the smaller ethnic groups their own border states between the larger Ethnicities. Make the Central government weak and in control of a castrated small arm force whether it is ruled by a Hausa-Fulani King, the British Queen or Dictator as long as they can do little against the might of even just 40% of the federated states it is Okay.

Let every one have a national and regional passport. Let the Federated states have high control over their internal laws the the Central government be limited to settling dispute between regions and foreign policy.

Let each region be run according to their own resources, no more centrally allocated resources. Each State runs from its own resources of which all states in Nigeria have many. Let each federated state be unable to independently made deals with other countries but be able to independently make deals with multi-nationals.

Let each Federated states' ability to vote/interfer with the Central government be relative to its per capita so that each of them have a selfish reason to improve the standard of living of their citizens

If Northerners want no more Igbos we too should be able to eject their Amaljiri and Herdsmen that they keep sending south.
