The Yoruba Hausa Relationship: A Mystery? by babasolution: 12:57am On Jul 25, 2022
I still cannot understand the intersection of the Yoruba - Hausa deep relationship.

It goes beyond politics,to be honest and not sounding tribal,it's like a master slave relationship.

The Hausa's have excessive freedom in all of yorubaland, they not not have this level of freedom in other some other regions even in the middlebelt or minority areas.

In yorubaland ,Hausa's are so so free,they do as they like,they bring in their foreign brothers to settle in yorubaland, Nigeriens,Chadians,Malians hold sway in almost all Yoruba land.

What is most surprising is that they constantly have misunderstanding and clash and fight alot,with the Hausa's always having upper hand and killing alot of the Yorubas.

Yet there seems to be an unwillingness by the Yoruba to checkmate this.

The Yoruba politicians always give excuses for the Hausa.

This as been happening for a long time.

What is actually the history behind this special link of the Yoruba with the Hausa

It is Igbo oil and gas. Over 60 percent of what nigeria and Britain made you to be referring to as niger delta oil is on Igboland both in the South East and ceded Igbo lads into your so-called South-South. Over 80% of your dungeon's gas comes out from mainland/South East Igboland. Make your research.

Not true, Hausas are usually peaceful.
I think the problem is the recent migration of large number of northerners to the south west which causes tension.

Remember south west is Nigeria's little Europe.

The bolded, in conjunction with self-respect and d respect/regard for others is what they share in common.

Izit a coincidence that ALL Nigerians are free to migrate and settle in d north and west? Of course not. Its a result of their hospitality.

Even d Great book says, "Can two walk together except they be agreed?" - Amos 3:3

Why shd one abandon someone u share things in common with for someone constantly looking at u with bad eye? Its not rocket science nah, or izit?
cool

It's only one single thing they have in common which is religion.

Every other thing Yoruba will do it with Igbo man.

Have u seen where hausa man is doing business with Igbo man.

The proportion of Yoruba man doing business with Igbo man is elastic while with hausa the range is minimal.

Point of correction: No Hausa man bring foreigners to Nigeria. What is the reason or existing relationship that will make Hausa man bring foreigners to Nigeria?
Is it not evidently clear that some section of Nigerians are having consistent clash with citizens of South Africa for alleged human trafficking, prostitution, drugs peddling and Yahoo scam, so, should we blame their tribe that take them to SA, Ghana, and some other countries causing hard for Nigerians and their host Nation?
You need to know that Nigerians from all other parts of the country need to know that Nigerian constitution have given all citizens fundamental human right to live freely everywhere in Nigeria and crisis are often happening due to tribal sentiment, denial of right to do busines freely without bias or sentiment.
Calling it master and slave relationship is nonsensical. Some people are in Abuja looting and laughing together irrespective of heir ethno-religious background but poor people know nothing other than spreading hates and division...

My land and people are not obliged to obey the Nigerian constitution,it's not a people constitution but a military one.

Nigeria has been all these years held together only because of the military otherwise it wud have been divided long ago.

I have a right to chose the kind of people I want in my land.

I don't want dangerous ,low life people

It seems you are ignorant of history.

The military did not write any constitution — apart from promulgating the enabling decrees.
On November 11, 1998, Abdulsalami inaugurated the Constitution Debate Co-ordinating Committee (CDCC) to “pilot the debate, co-ordinate and collate views and recommendations canvassed by individuals and groups and submit report not later than 31 December 1998”. It was not headed by a soldier but by Justice Niki Tobi, with Dr. Suleiman Kurmo as deputy chairman. There was no single military man on the committee. They went round the country to collect memoranda from the public through town hall meetings in Benin, Enugu, Jos, Port Harcourt, Kaduna, Kano, Ibadan, Lagos and Sokoto. They excluded military formations.

After all the frenetic debates — up and down, north and south, east and west — the Tobi committee submitted its report to the military government. Tobi said: “In the light of the memoranda and the oral presentation on the 1995 Draft Constitution, it is clear that Nigerians basically opt for the 1979 Constitution with relevant amendments. They want it, and they have copiously given their reasons for their choice in the different memoranda and oral presentations.
So they recommended to the Provisional Ruling Council the adoption of the 1979 Constitution with relevant amendments from the 1995 Draft Constitution.” Abdulsalami accepted the recommendation.
When the 1999 constitution was finally published, three of them sat down and placed it side by side with the 1979 constitution. They then did a clause-by-clause analysis. The trio were: Mr. Victor Ifijeh (the current MD of The Nation newspaper who was THISDAY editor then), Alhaji Yusuph Olaniyonu (SA to Senate President Bukola Saraki who was THISDAY politics editor at the time) and THISDAY features editor. They did a word-for-word reading and laughed themselves to stupor: this is pure plagiarism of the 1979 constitution!
There were only a few notable differences in the two documents, such as the 13% derivation for oil-producing states and the number of states in the federation. While the 1979 constitution spoke about 19 states, 1999 said 36 states, logically. They were only reflecting the realities on ground. FEDECO in the 1979 document changed to INEC in 1999 constitution therefore it can be concluded that the 1999 constitution is a replica of the 1979 constitution.
The biggest irony abt the contentious nature of our constitution is the vicious condemnation of the 1999 constitution by some prominent Nigerians who mostly took part in the previous constitution starting committees or got favour & protection by the system.


Those who believed that the constitution was imposed or dictated by military are just insulting the wisdom and character of their forefathers for accepting what is imposed on them by chairing the committee and drafting what they reject!
