|North Has Election Numbers; Delusion ,myth Or Fact by byteem: 4:52pm On Sep 27, 2021|
So, enough with the boasting and loud claims that North has the numbers. Enough is enough...
When you lie to yourself long enough, Your falsehoods become your truth, and you begin to force your perception of the truth down people's throats as FACT. The North attempts to promote the illusion of having electoral numbers.
So, where do these figures come from? The Core North is eager to claim Benue, Kogi, Taraba, Adamawa, and Plateau for electoral reasons, yet we all know these are Middle Belt states. Apart from Kano and half of Kaduna, the North has nothing in terms of electoral numbers, as they brazenly assert, and these middle belt states, which include Kogi, Taraba, Adamawa, Plateau, Niger, and Benue, are where the actual numbers lie.
The North also claims control over food production, but we already know that the Middle Belt states control this as well.
So, how has the middle belt fared? When it comes to enjoying the benefits of being identified as "North". Everything goes to core North. There are no federal government projects; instead, there are IDP camps and thousands of fatalities... even the rail lines that are most required in the middle belt for transportation of agricultural products go to the core North. Even the "37th state" of Nigeria is included.
Despite the instability in the core Northern states, this government gave them all projects, and when the Middle Belt protested, they were ordered to shut up like the faithful dogs they are.
It's a misconception to believe that these Northern slaves would fall for the same deception again. After all, the North treats the Middle Belt like captured slaves who must dance to their masters' tune and follow every whim, regardless of how brutally they are treated.
The reality is that in 2023, the Middle Belt will be the beautiful bride, and whoever can convince these states to support them will win. The Yoruba states were the lovely bride in the recent elections... Tinubu delivered, but only until 2023. It's all about the Middle Belt... whoever can "deliver" the Middle Belt wins...Regardless of what the North thinks giving the Middle belt Vice, with a Southern president would be a killer combination ... but would they dare? Who knows, maybe they've grown some balls.
If the North can keep the Middle Belt faithful and loyal, there's a chance their boasts about having the numbers are true. However, we know that the Middle Belt is developing its own identity. They have suffered much under this government, and the sooner they recognize their strength and advantage in the scheme of things, the better. or maybe they already have.
Lobbying has already begun... the election for 2023 will be won in the next 9 to 12 months, not in 2023.
So now the true Nigerian politics has begun, and our naira will suffer.. more dollars required for lobbying by politicians equals less for the general economy. The value of the naira will hit rock bottom. Experts estimate that if the present pace of depreciation continues, the naira would be well over N1000 to $1 in 2023, but that's a topic for another day.

The north does not have the numbers in votes.
BUT they control all the security arms, INEC and Judiciary. Not to mention the Executive and legislative arms of government as well.
Therefore, any fake numbers announced by INEC are confirmed by the judiciary and they use the army and police to shoot anyone who dares to step out and protest.
