The Problem Of Nigeria Are Yoruba, Hausa-fulani And Igbos by OBUKSBAYELSA: 1:25pm On Jun 05, 2021
The late Chinua Achebe titled it "The Trouble of Nigeria" I will call it The pains of Nigeria. I read carefully the response of Vice President Yemi Osibanjo and rightly came to the conclusion that he was only grandstanding to be seen as condemning the modus operandi of IPOB. However, the truth must be told let the world be aware that the problem of Nigeria is situate at the doorstep of Hausa-Fulani, Yoruba and Igbos, their domineering mentality is what has led us to where we are today and the real war has not even started. As we move closer to 2023 that is when the three major ethnic will bare thier fangs and show Nigerians the true face of wickedness. The Hausa-Fulani don't want an Igbo President neither does the Yoruba, the Yoruba don't want an Hausa-Fulani President neither does the Igbos want a Yoruba or Hausa-Fulani President, so where do we go from here? The only solution lies in the hands of the minorities of the South and North they are for now the only group that can hold Presidency and keep our Nation from total conflagration because the bitterness of the three major ethnic nationalities is too open.

Firstly the igbo stand is completely different from the two

Hausa is relegated so no need to bring them into this discussion

Fulanis wants to expand down south due to desertification of north and other African countries instead of fighting it like China with tree planting and the rest ......if they can plant 1 billion trees every year ...each person plants at lest 100 trees to 1000 trees in one year it can help them like it did to china

But they want to hold on to power , playing but yorubas and igbos leaders not igbos


Yorubas think they can use their closeness to northerners after 2015 to get them to twik zoning so that everyone in the south can contest instead of a particular zone like agreed in 1999 ( gentleman agreement) ...so they want rotation between north and south because they feel like if north would support anyone it's yorubas after 2015 ...they see it as an opportunity to get one over the igbos show they are smarter


The igbo leaders want zoning to be respected or thrown open to everyone ...as a move to counter the yorubas ...igbos leaders don't really care about presidency just want to keep benefiting so even vice would do ...but there is a very very very big gap between igbo leaders and igbos
a) igbos leaders are thankful to Fulani controlled federal government for helping win elections ...so they don't represent igbo interest but personal and fulani interest

Igbos themselves feel that one there is a chance fulanis would expand to what they cherish the most ( not money surprising to none igbos ) ancestral land ...it's like a heritage ...so igbos quickly wants to escape Nigeria to prevent fualnis from taking over their land or at worst a restructured Nigeria where igbos would control igbo police ( since police and army seem to be loyal to fulanis ) ...ipob took the chance and promised to save them from fulanis ...with his predictions of fulanis happening he gained support ...so his words are more believed than the government


So that's the stands of the major tribes

Can still give u analysis of minorities if u wish

Firstly your distinguishing Igbo leaders from Igbos generally is a new one for me and many others of minorities status in Obodo Nigeria!
Secondly those of us from the minorities are not lost to history on how Our Fathers survived during the 1st Republic; we were lump together in Western, Eastern and Northern Regions and our people became the sacrificial political lamb of the three major ethnic groups of Yoruba, Hausa-Fulani and Igbos whose modus operandi was to use us in futhering thier fight against each other for example the North supported insurrection of minorities groups in the east against the regional government in the East while the West supported minorities groups in the middle belt against the North, the East on it's own supported minorities in the West against the Western regional government, the Willink Report which was supposed to give us some modicum of economic hope and participatory democracy was discarded.
Today the same game is what is playing out and the major tribe of Hausa-Fulani, Igbos and Yorubas are playing the same game that is why the minorities don't want to be associated with the dismemberment of present Nigeria but would rather want to proffer solutions to problems created by the three big ethnic nationalities and one of the solution is for the big three to stay off the presidency till we are able to create a proper rotation principle that will take care of all and sundry.
The North is not a desert as most people think and Hausa-Fulani are not that divided as people think rather through inter-marriage and religion are so well linked.
Finally the battle in the North is actually Islamic Evangelism battle between the Sons of Uthman Dan Fodio and the Children Idriss Aloma of Kanem Bornu Empire, though that is not to say that Land is not also a major factor. We the minorities will rather remain in Nigeria than join in a battle that we will be used and dump.

If u read the willinks report well ...then you would know igbos tho we are not perfect and never claim to be gave minorities what they deserve ...that report found no marginalization by the igbos read it again

All igbos want have always been and would always be a lever playing ground ...do to us what u do to others

If other have 6 states give us 6 states don't give us 7 or 5 ...simple
