I don’t buy the B***t from Garuba and we SW’ners understand the game play of the Northerners.

Currently we are the bride that the Igbos and Northerners are trying to court because we are the only card needed by both side to tilt this in their favor and I will explain.

—Nigeria military is currently weak and have been fighting on all fronts. Bandits, Boko Haram, Unknown Gunmen, and etc.

—Nnamdi Kanu already took the step of making it red in the SE, thinking the FG will come and bargain and he can hold them down by burning everything down.

—While that approach may be good, it is not foolproof.
Firstly, the SE as a region is not that important to Nigeria revenue and that’s a fact. The SS have the crude oil installations and if they start blowing pipes and burning everything down, the FG won’t have a choice than to come to bargain.
Secondly, Lagos is another revenue source for Nigeria and the seaports and taxes is a big source to the FG including that Ogun border. If the Yorubas start blowing up the seaports and Lagos airports in uprisings, the FG will come to bargain.

—Also the FG cannot fight a combined South and win easily so they are being careful. That is exactly why they won’t invade Yorubaland when Igboho did Oduduwa rallies coupled with the fact that our governors still have some leadership in them compared to the SE governors.

—Hence based on the above, without the necessary alliance from both the South South militants and the Yoruba extreme radicals, Nnamdi Kanu approach will only bring killings without path to success because SE going up in flames doesn’t affect Nigeria revenue and business can still continue. FG can kill thousands with back and forth win and loses on both side but status quo will still remain. Just count the number of casualties on both side since these UGM started and those deaths we don’t even hear of online.

—I think Kanu also know of the need for this alliance which explained why he has been courting the Oduduwa agitators and looking for Yoruba friendship.

—Also SE governor are useless and have projected themselves as powerless in all this. They don’t have enough courage to tell the FG to stop and don’t have the popularity to weaken Keanu’s influence too so they just left everything to fate.

—Now this is what is still sketchy, can Sunday Igboho heed the call and go militant like ESN? Will he be able to pull that stunt among the Yorubas that are not dogmatic? How long can he burn installations to retain the Yoruba’s loyalty and uncommon sense? Will it be possible looking at the fact that the SW populations doesn’t have that much resentment as a block like the SE’ners have due to the sentiment of Biafra?

Finally, there is one thing I know that I’m 99% sure of. If all these eventually lead to an unexpected war, the Yorubas will not fight on the side of the Northerners.

I’ll just watch as things unfold!

Yes, another civil war will lead to total disintegration of Nigeria, no escaping at all. The world has changed and as the most populous African country, other Africa country and Europe won’t be able to even contain the refugee crisis.

However let me be the devils advocate, the war would have been going on for one year + before they even know it’s a war and you’re looking at lot of casualties. But in that scenario, people can say the casualties are what we needed for freedom. Infact we are systematically in a war right now.

Not that I’m actually abusing the SE when I said they don’t have that much bargaining power in revenue, it is the reality. Just look at it, what exactly can be destroyed in the SE that will shake and ground Nigeria? Please reply me and I will agree to your answer if it is logical enough.

Lastly, the Yoruba will not be neutral in any war, we won’t. We must take sides because any war in Nigeria will affect the Yoruba so badly so we must take sides. The dynamics have changed, Ibo and Yoruba are now too mixed that it might be near impossible to leave them to their fate. Also Yorubaland is like the sanctuary, if anything happen in Iboland, people will move here to live and it will be nearly impossible for us not to accept them.

Hence, if I am a Yoruba leader, I will be preparing and won’t just sit down and be caught unaware like we were in the 60s. I don’t know how this will end, but if UGM matter escalates in the SE and the SW were also caught in the wave, we can’t be neutral.

The Fulanis have made it certain for a Yoruba-North alliance to be near Impossible.

There's nothing like "the Yorubas will not fight on the side of the Northerners." You're either with the Federal government or against her. Federal government will invade any state or region that carry arms against her. Or is it going to be northerners vs South Easterners, like tribal war? Lol

Use your head and and go and read about the Nigerian civil war.Igbos were having the upper hand until they invaded Ore and Yoruba joined the federal side and the rest is history.
This time around,it is obvious that Yorubas will be decimating the core North together with the Igbos.

He is stylishly giving a signal to his Fulani kinsmen who are leaving the South East on the area to move. This is pure Taqqiya, the Fulanis have always used applied Taqqiya in conquering communities and installing Emirs on them

When there is anarchy in the north and the south east is boiling. Rubbish.

Everybody knows. Hence, the reason we say no to fulani herdsmen and sharia law.
