Same thing I wanted to say..

Most of the people he thinks are Fulani, are Fulani wannabe.

Bachama outnumber Fulani in Adamawa state.

Again, no indigenous Hausas in Adamawa state.

No fulani in Adamawa North, all the ones you think are fulani, are actually nothing close to Fulani.
One of my coursemate often claims to be Fulani, when I engage him, he said he is from Hong LGA (Kiliba) tribe but claim to be Fulani because his family grew up in Yola town.

Fulani can be found in Yola south, Girei, Mayo, Fufore, and Jada LGAs.. every other place you see Fulani, its either they are settlers or they are Fulani wannabe like my coursemate.

No fulanis dominate gombe.tjey are the number 1 tribe.most of the governors are fulani.just like kaduna,guber is rotated between northern and central zones,nothing for south.
HAUSAS have never ruled gombe,muazu is Fulani,yuguda is a minority same as m.d abubakar.i think bala is Fulani.

Where did you leave the Chamba people, notably found in Adamawa, Taraba and Borno state, although you are a bit right with your list but the Fulani does not have the number, most people you call Fulani are not really Fulani, and when you talk about the NE, they are not that much like they are i n the NW.

The chambas are same as BACHAMA or BWATIYE na.oga,since the people claim Fulani,allow them.

The Chambaa are not same with Bachama, they are clearly different tribe.

The people you call Fulani are not Fulani and did not accept to be called Fulani. Most people you call Fulani are Hausa and other small minor tribes, but because they are Muslims, you call them Fulani.

You are not getting me.i am getting my sources from government and the Internet not referring to people.all sources say fulanis are the largest tribe in adamawa and gombe and my findings corroborate this so don't create confusion here.
Nobody is classifying anyone wrongly.fintiri and bindowo are muslims but no one calls them fulanis.atiku is not a Fulani but he sees himself as fulani

That is the problem, the same why government tell you that the Obadigbo people in Benue are Idoma?

I am talking to you as someone who is based in that locality and knows the tribes more than you.

It seems the inflation is biting you hard son hence you bringing it up.tinubu will rule till 2031.
By the way, information on ethnicities is not about Tinubu or any particular president but Nigeria official records even before independence.infact,even international organizations corroborate it.you have no moral right to talk here son since you claimed atiku won the north and you don't even know how ethnographic infos are gotten,you blindly think it's from tinubu.you people from that side always overreach and over do.better shut up and allow people from the disputed areas to talk

Why will inflation hit me when I am into trade? The Inflation happens to be a blessing for us as traders.

Soon, they will tell you that you are from Togo, which I don't doubt, lolz. I hope you will take it as it is from the government.

People from the disputed areas are not the ones making the so called data, if they were, you would have gotten real, unrefined data on ethnicity.
