Igbo People Own Nigeria - Former NHIS Executive Secretary. by mabea: 8:54am On Aug 02
Former Executive Secretary of National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), Prof Usman Yusuf, has described claims that the Fulani “own” Nigeria as a fallacy and “sentimental nonsense”.

He said that the erroneous narrative was being pushed by unscrupulous elements with a nefarious agenda.
According to him, Fulani people were in the minority in the federal civil service compared to Yoruba and Igbo people.

The Katsina-born professor added that Yoruba and Igbo people were also far richer than their Fulani counterparts.

Yusuf said that there was therefore no justification for claiming that the Fulani own or control Nigeria.
“Which part of Nigeria do they own? Igbo people are richer than Fulani people; Yoruba people are also richer than Fulani people. There are more Igbo and Yoruba in federal civil service than Fulani.

“Does any Fulani own a bank? Does any Fulani own a media house? Does any Fulani own a hotel? All the hotels in Abuja and land are owned by the Igbo. Is Abuja Igbo land? Can Fulani own in the East what Igbo own in the North? No. If you have never been to the North, come and see the landed properties that the Igbo have, which the Fulani do not have and cannot have in Igbo land.

“Whoever that says Fulani man owns Nigeria, let him come and say how. Fulani man occupies Aso Rock, and so what? An Igbo man should come and occupy Aso Rock and give the Fulani all the material wealth he has in the North. That is nonsense.
“Igbo own all the hotels, they own banks, and Yoruba own the newspapers and banks. What do the Fulani own? It is just sentimental nonsense,”Yusuf toldSaturday Sun.

Hmmm! Afonjas will sleep today so? No, they will avoid the thread. Any good news about Igbos gives them a sad day. I can only say:

Another unverifiable claim... investment is personal and differs amongst people.

This is another psychological media notion to pit certain people against others in thinking they are over reaching.

Who cares what you think. Igbos have been great since the history of time and will continue to be great. If you can, tell me one tribe that has performed or achieved more than the Igbos? So your shouting and envy will do the great Igbo race no harm.

The guy spoke about Igbo and Yorubas but somehow igbo decided to turn it upside down as usual.

Nigeria belongs to everyone.

Yoruba, igbo, Edo, Hausa, igala, Egbira etc.

Waiting for people who won't read the post, just the heading.

The man mentioned both Igbo and Yoruba.

Op, not cool.

It's difficult for Fulanis to get rich from just driving cattle on foot from one location to another, living life less than even their cows.

I guess that's why they want to hold on tight to the presidency and also why they kidnap people for ransom.
