Who Is Responsible For Nigeria’s Anticipated Disintegration?

Who Is Responsible For Nigeria’s Anticipated Disintegration?

Ozodi Thomas Osuji

On October 1, 1960, after 46 years of British rule (1914-1960) Nigerian obtained independence from Britain.  Upon independence Abubaker Tafawa Belewa, a Northerner was the prime minister of Nigeria.

On January 15, 1966 Major Chukwuma Nzeogwu, an Igbo, led a military coup that toppled the elected (sort of) Abubaker government. Major General Aguiyi Ironsi, an Igbo, led a military government from January to July of 1966. He was overthrown by Lt. Colonel Yakubu Gowon (from the North).

Thereafter, Northerners ruled Nigeria until the assassination of Mutala Mohammed and the emergence of Olufemi Obasanjo (a Yoruba man) as the military ruler.

In 1979 Obasanjo handed government to Shehu Shagari, a Northerner.  Shagari was eventually removed from office and a string of Northerners ruled Nigeria (Buhari, Babangida,  Abacha and Abdul Salami).  A Yoruba, Shonikan and another Yoruba ruled Nigeria (Obasanjo, from 1999 to 2007).

Obasanjo handed power to Umaru Musa Yaradua, a northerner.  Yardua died in office and Goodluck Jonathan, an Ijaw, came to power two years ago.

From 1960 to 2012 is fifty-two years.  Out of those fifty-two years Northerners have been in power for 39 years; Yorubas have been in power for 11 years, Ijaws have been in power for 2 years and Igbos have been in power for all of six months!

For all intents and purposes Nigeria has been ruled by Hausas and Yorubas. Igbos have been bystanders in the power calculus of Nigeria.

If this picture is correct and it is correct, if Nigeria falls who should we hold responsible for her fall; who should we blame for Nigeria’s anticipated disintegration?  We must hold those who have ruled her accountable for Nigeria’s fall.

[size=16pt]Under the watch of Hausas and Yorubas Nigeria became the corruption capital of the world.  Virtually nothing gets done in Nigeria without someone bribing someone.  You simply have to bribe to get what you want. If you want the rag-tagged policeman at a road side check point to let you pass you have to bribe him; if you want to obtain a form from a government office you have to bribe the clerk dispensing the supposed free form; if you want the officials in the ministry of your business interest to do something for you, you have to bribe them; if you want contract to do some work for the government you have to bribe whoever awards the contract; if you want to become a member of the legislature or executive or judiciary you have to pay your dues (to the power brokers of Nigeria); if you want to attend a university in Nigeria or obtain a job at one of her forth rate universities you have to bribe someone there.[/size]

The Nigerian budget has 80% of its money budgeted for recurrent matters (that is, as salaries to the less than one million people working for the government…less than one million people take 80% of the money that is supposed to serve 140 million Nigerians) and the balance supposedly for capital matters. The money for capital projects is mostly redirected into the pockets of those in government. Can you actually imagine the government constructing and maintaining capital intensive projects? Not in your wildest dreams. The toilets at the various airports do not even work; the entire damn airports are seldom swept for weeks; we are talking jungle here!  And Nigerians expect economic development under these circumstances?  If they do they are not for real.

Nigerian legislators pay themselves the highest salaries for those performing similar jobs in the world.  The member of the National Assembly makes over one million US dollars a year (and if we factor in other remunerations and we are talking about several millions). The president pays himself a salary higher than those made by David Cameron, Nicolas Sarkozy, Angela Merkle and Barak Obama and has a fleet of planes available to him. These massive expenditures on themselves are in a country where the average citizen lives on less than two dollars a day.

Nigerian rulers have one function in life: to gather at Abuja and share the money coming from oil; looting oil revenue is their sole reason for running for office. Doing something for the people is not part of their job specification.

These folks actually accomplish nothing for Nigeria; see, they cannot even get electricity to work nonstop for twenty four hours! The people drink worm infested waters and contract all sorts of diseases hence die young (the average Nigerian life span is 43 years).  Medical services are so primitive that anyone who can afford it goes overseas for medical treatment (and to die).

The thirty six states (let us call them what they are, counties in the unitary, not federal  government of Nigeria) literally do not generate their own revenues; they totally depend on the monthly allocations they obtain from the Federal government (from looted oil money).

State governors go to the capital, Abuja, to get their monthly allocations and pocket whatever percent of it they desire and the rest goes to paying those who support them and that way nothing is done.

Cities look like jungles. If you go to Nigerian cities they look as if no human beings perform the functions we ordinarily expect city governments to perform: provide electricity, water, maintain roads, remove sewage, provide health services etc.  It seems that no one is in charge of these cities; actually, thieves are in charge! And folks expect development here? Get real, my friend.

The infrastructure left behind by the British have virtually collapsed; Nigerian schools are no longer schools but training grounds for only God knows what.  The roads have since been reclaimed by tropical rain and the jungle is fast reclaiming the so-called cities.

The few factories built by the nationalist rulers of Nigeria (1960s through 1970s) have fallen apart and Africa’s jungle have reclaimed where those factories used to be.

The enumeration of what is wrong with Nigeria can go on and on but the point is that nothing gets done correctly in this shithouse called Nigeria.

[size=16pt]If abominable things took place under the watch of Hausas and Yorubas who are to be blamed for them but Hausas and Yorubas?  If as the CIA predicts Nigeria is scheduled to disintegrate and it disintegrates who is responsible for her disintegration?  Certainly it is not Igbos (with their only half a year of ruler-ship of Nigeria) who are responsible for the anticipated collapse of Nigeria.

There is oil in the Niger Delta; Northerners and Westerners have their eyes set on stealing that oil, and they are doing so. They actually went to war to bring the East back to Nigeria not because they give a hoot for Igbos welfare but to have access to the cash cow oil. These people subsequently pretend to have a government in Nigeria but actually what they do is provide enough security for them to have opportunity to maximize their looting of what does not belong to them, Southern oil revenue.
[/size]

It is oil money that keeps the cabal of thieves in place and when there is no more oil to steal they would have no revenue to pay for their goons-squad (military) that enables them to steal to their hearts content and thereafter like the cowards they are would flee from power as Nigeria collapses.

If Nigeria disintegrates the fallen house would become another Somalia; law and order would break down and Boko Haram would kill as many persons as satisfies their blood lust. Nigerians seeking refugee status would flee to other West African countries.    Just imagine millions of Nigerians slushing all over Africa seeking accommodation; it is going to be a mess. And yet such tragedy needed not to have happened if honest human beings, not thieves, ruled Nigeria.

Nigeria cannot sustain for long what she is currently doing; it is impossible for an organization to be this corrupt and last long. Everything indicates that Nigeria will fall. If she falls who is responsible for her fall?

Who shall we blame for being unable to rule an African polity cobbled together by a British buccaneer and adventurer, Frederick Lugard in 1914.  Many Nigerians could not even organize a polity for themselves and it took a foreigner to do so for them and they allowed it to fall.

Nigeria has been around since (1900) 1914 and probably would disintegrate in 2014, exactly a hundred years after it came into existence.

[size=16pt]We must blame Hausas and Yorubas for the anticipated fall of Nigeria. We cannot blame Igbos for the fall of this once potential great African republic.[/size]

Perhaps, if Igbos were in power in Nigeria they, too, would not have made a difference?  I think that I know my fellow Igbos quite well. They are driven by the ego’s desire for prestige; they all want to be chiefs, to be very important persons. Perhaps, in their neurotic drive to seem important they would have done something to develop Nigeria, for a developed Nigeria would have gratified their egos desire for importance?

[size=16pt]I have a sneaking suspicion that if Igbos had ruled Nigeria for any substantial number of years that they would have made a difference. See, in the three years they were in their own enclave, Biafra, they actually made some technological innovations, a first for the benighted black race.
[/size]
But we would never know if Igbos would have made a positive difference in Nigeria’s fate. Talking about what could have been is wishful thinking.

[size=16pt]What is empirical is that Hausas and Yorubas ruled Nigeria and ran her to the ground.[/size] The necessary conclusion is that they are not capable of ruling modern polities; they are disastrous in governance (yet Hausas fancy themselves born to rule and see Yorubas as born to be bureaucrats and Igbos as born to be petty traders).

This is too bad for the black race for it goes to reinforce the perception that the black man can only Be Intimate, produce children he does not take care of, eat and dance but not do anything that contributes to science and technology and human progress in general.

This is sad, very sad, indeed. Let us hope that the predicted does not happen, that Nigeria does not disintegrate.

But for that to be we must have men of integrity, not thieves ruling Nigeria. Are we ever going to have men of honor rule Nigeria?  Can good come out from Nigeria?

Finally, consider this syllogism:

Yorubas and Hausas have run Nigeria to the ground. (Major premise)

Adamu and Ojo are Hausa and Yoruba respectively. (Minor Premise)

Therefore, if given the opportunity to rule, Adamu and Ojo are going to run Nigeria to the ground. (Conclusion)

Human beings do draw logical inferences from their antecedent behaviors. Folks past behaviors predict their present and future behaviors; the good they say that they would do in the future is mere noise that deceives no rational person. No good can come from known looters, and if you believe otherwise I have a bridge to sell to you. We need those who have not ruled Nigeria and made a royal mess of her to rule her. If Nigeria is to survive past 2015 her next president should be an Igbo or Edo person.

If you say that the above syllogism is based on stereotyping of people, not on looking at them as individuals, well, I can tell you this: we expect Germans to be disciplined and work hard; we expect French men to be very rational; we expect Englishmen to be deceptive; we expect white Americans to be entrepreneurs; we expect black Americans to see themselves as victims, to always excuse their failures with whining about what other folks did to them; we expect Italians to be romantic and we expect Russians to be chaotic. You only deny national traits at your peril. I am Igbo and behave exactly as you would expect Igbos to behave: achievement oriented and individualistic (and since character strength has its converse, weakness, whatever weaknesses Igbos have).  Although overgeneralized and exaggerated, there is always a germ of truth in every stereotype. If you want work done right and on time give it to a German; if you want shoddy work give it to a Russian; if you desire merit based behavior look at Igbos; if you desire nepotism, well, look at those in charge of shithouse Nigeria. Of course, there are exceptions to these general rules.

Yorubas are the Problem with Nigeria – By Sanusi Lamido Sanusi
Via Elombah.com. Wed, 05/27/2009 – 11:01

By Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, the Prospective Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria

[size=16pt]In sum, the Yoruba political leadership, as mentioned by Balarabe Musa, has shown itself over the years to be incapable of rising above narrow tribal interests and reciprocating goodwill from other sections of the country by treating other groups with respect. Practically every crisis in Nigeria since independence has its roots in this attitude.

i. The Yoruba elite and area-boy politics;
ii. Igbo marginalisation and the responsible limits of retribution; and
iii. The Yoruba Factor and “Area-boy” Politics.





My views on the Yoruba political leadership have been thoroughly articulated in some of my writings, prime among which was ” Afenifere: Syllabus of Errors” published by This Day (The Sunday Newspaper) on Sept 27, 1998. There was also an earlier publication in the weekly Trust entitled ” The Igbo, the Yoruba and History” (Aug. 21, 1998).
In sum, the Yoruba political leadership, as mentioned by Balarabe Musa, has shown itself over the years to be incapable of rising above narrow tribal interests and reciprocating goodwill from other sections of the country by treating other groups with respect. Practically every crisis in Nigeria since independence has its roots in this attitude.
The Yoruba elite were the first, in 1962, to attempt a violent overthrow of an elected government in this country. In 1966, it was the violence in the West which provided an avenue for the putsch of 15th January. After Chief Awolowo lost to Shagari in 1983 elections, it was the discontent and bad publicity in the South-West which led to the Buhari intervention.
When Buhari jailed UPN governors like Ige and Onabanjo, the South-Western press castigated that good government and provided the right mood for IBB to take over power. As soon as IBB cleared UPN governors of charges against them in a politically motivated retrial, he became the darling of the South-West. When IBB annulled the primaries in which Adamu Ciroma and Shehu Yar Adua emerged as presidential candidates in the NRC and SDP, he was hailed by the South-West. When the same man annulled the June 12, 1993 elections in which Abiola was the front-runner, the South-West now became defenders of democracy.

When it seemed Sani Abacha was sympathetic to Abiola, the South-West supported his take-over. He was in fact invited by a prominent NADECO member to take over in a published letter shortly before the event. Even though Abiola had won the elections in the North, the North was blamed for its annulment. When Abdulsalam Abubakar started his transition, the Yoruba political leadership through NADECO presented a memorandum on a Government of National Unity that showed complete disrespect for the intelligence and liberties of other Nigerians.
Subsequently, they formed a tribal party which failed to meet minimum requirements for registration, but was registered all the same to avoid the violence that was bound to follow non-registration, given the area-boy mentality of South-West politicians. Having rejected an Obasanjo candidacy and challenged the election as a fraud in court, we now find a leading member of the AD in the government, a daughter of an Afenifere leader as Minister of State, and Awolowo´s daughter as Ambassador, all appointed by a man who won the election through fraud.

Meanwhile, nothing has been negotiated for the children of Abiola, the focus of Yoruba political activity. In return for these favours, the AD solidly voted for Evan Enwerem as Senate President. This is a man who participated in the two-million- man March for Abacha´s self-succession. He also is reputed to have hosted a meeting of governors during IBB´s transition, demanding that June 12 elections should never be de-annulled and threatening that the East would go to war if this was done. When Ibrahim Salisu Buhari was accused of swearing to a false affidavit, the Yoruba political elite correctly took up the gauntlet for his resignation.

When an AD governor, Bola Tinubu, swears to a false affidavit that he attended an Ivy League University which he did not attend, we hear excuses.

For so many years, the Yoruba have inundated this country with stories of being marginalised and of a civil service dominated by northerners through quota system. The Federal Character Commission has recently released a report which shows that the South-West accounts for 27.8% of civil servants in the range GL08 to GL14 and a full 29.5% of GL 15 and above. One zone out of six zones controls a full 30% of the civil service leaving the other five zones to share the remaining 70%. We find the same story in the economy, in academia, in parastatals.

Yet in spite of being so dominant, the Yoruba complained and complained of marginalization. Of recent, in recognition of the trauma which hit the South-West after June 12, the rest of the country forced everyone out of the race to ensure that a South-Westerner emerged, often against the best advice of political activists.

Instead of leading a path of reconciliation and strong appreciation, the Yoruba have embarked on short-sighted triumphalism, threatening other “nationalities” that they ( who after all lost the election) will protect Obasanjo ( who was forced on them). No less a person than Bola Ige has made such utterances.

To further show that they were in charge, they led a cult into the Hausa area of Sagamu, murdered a Hausa woman and nothing happened. In the violence that followed, they killed several Hausa residents, with Yoruba leaders like Segun Osoba, reminding Nigerians of the need to respect the culture of their host communities. This would have continued were it not for the people of Kano who showed that they could also create their own Oro who would only be appeased through the shedding of innocent Yoruba blood.

I say all this, to support Balarabe Musa´s statement, that the greatest problem to nation-building in Nigeria are the Yoruba Bourgeoisie. I say this also to underscore my point that until they change this attitude, no conference can solve the problems of Nigeria. We cannot move forward if the leadership of one of the largest ethnic groups continues to operate, not like statesmen, but like common area boys.
[/size]
iii.The Igbo Factor and the Reasonable Limits of Retribution.

The Igbo people of Nigeria have made a mark in the history of this nation. They led the first successful military coup which eliminated the Military and Political leaders of other regions while letting off Igbo leaders. Nwafor Orizu, then Senate President, in consultation with President Azikiwe, subverted the constitution and handed over power to Aguiyi-Ironsi. Subsequent developments, including attempts at humiliating other peoples, led to the counter-coup and later the civil war. The Igbos themselves must acknowledge that they have a large part of the blame for shattering the unity of this country.

Having said that, this nation must realise that Igbos have more than paid for their foolishness. They have been defeated in war, rendered paupers by monetary policy fiat, their properties declared abandoned and confiscated, kept out of strategic public sector appointments and deprived of public services. The rest of the country forced them to remain in Nigeria and has continued to deny them equity.

The Northern Bourgeoisie and the Yoruba Bourgeoisie have conspired to keep the Igbo out of the scheme of things. In the recent transition when the Igbo solidly supported the PDP in the hope of an Ekwueme presidency, the North and South-West treated this as a Biafra agenda. Every rule set for the primaries, every gentleman´s agreement was set aside to ensure that Obasanjo, not Ekwueme emerged as the candidate. Things went as far as getting the Federal Government to hurriedly gazette a pardon. Now, with this government, the marginalistion of the Igbo is more complete than ever before. The Igbos have taken all these quietly because, they reason, they brought it upon themselves. But the nation is sitting on a time-bomb.

After the First World War, the victors treated Germany with the same contempt Nigeria is treating Igbos. Two decades later, there was a Second World War, far costlier than the first. Germany was again defeated, but this time, they won a more honourable peace. Our present political leaders have no sense of History. There is a new Igbo man, who was not born in 1966 and neither knows nor cares about Nzeogwu and Ojukwu. There are Igbo men on the street who were never Biafrans. They were born Nigerians, are Nigerians, but suffer because of actions of earlier generations. They will soon decide that it is better to fight their own war, and may be find an honourable peace, than to remain in this contemptible state in perpetuity.

The Northern Bourgeoisie and the Yoruba Bourgeoisie have exacted their pound of flesh from the Igbos. For one Sardauna, one Tafawa Balewa, one Akintola and one Okotie-Eboh, hundreds of thousands have died and suffered.

If this issue is not addressed immediately, no conference will solve Nigeria´s problems.

So it looks like we were ruled by igbo leader for more then just 6 months!!!It been debated for years who had more power the prime minster or president which zik was.
Truth be told its voting along south- north and tribal divisions that has ruined nigeria .We often vote along that line rather then for who is more competent to do the job.Ghana was saved by a half ghanian even.
This is how we ended up with GEJ.

LOL! Nice thread to effectively reply that other silly one. Anyone who takes Osuji seriously is a clown.

Sam_Ikenna:

Osiris.211 are you happy now? People can now see why its utterly useless to start mud slinging. I wish Osiris.211 had listened and pulled that nonsense article Dr mad man Osuji gave him. Osuji was a fool, is a fool, and will probably be a fool forever. Whoever subscribes to his asinine gibberish really needs a shrink.

And for you BlackPikiN, please can you take this thing down for God's sake. Must you fall in the gutter with that slowpoke that started this war in the first place? Be a man and get rid of this thread.

I have an uneasy feeling that Yorubas and Igbos will never learn. I wish we would go in a secluded area and slug out our problems rather than wash our dirty linen in the open. If I were Seun I would give both Osiris.211 and  BlackPikiN 2 minutes to personally pull this garbage down or face immediate ban.

Your maturity and all-round balance is commendable. Keep it up. Nonetheless, I will advise you to begin ignoring those who make it obvious, from their provocative postings, that they come here to get some unresolved mental 'issues' out of their system. These folks , despite what they say and because of innate neurosis and psychological complexes afflicting them, are more interested in feudal pontifications and declaration of supremacy and greater piousness , above others, than anything else.

People in those category are not reasonable and will not be reasonable anytime soon. To that end, they are no use towards the search for solutions. I learnt , as far back as my University days, to note that those who take no interest in seeking solutions only compound the problem and impede progress.

funny thread  grin grin ridiculous to say the least when did Igbos start to take sanusi serious? a man we all know is a fanatical muslim terrorist in german suit. BTW when did Igbos suddenly turn saints? i laugh in Aba, Igbos has always been part and parcel of the nigerian corruption enterprise in fact it is an open secret that you guys steal with impunity and with nothing to show for it.

As for some of you internet noise makers you better go and get yourself a job, if you keep whingening this way very soon your Igbo brothers who are enjoying the status quo will see you as a threat, I don't need to tell you the kind of treatment you may get from your own brothers as i'm sure you are fully aware of your area of specialisation.

I didnt mean to put up this thread.

I did this to put up other written articles of the same author and for Osiris.2011.

That's my line of argument.
Those who were singing halleluiah song when He wrote an article
https://www.nairaland.com/nigeria/topic-873527.0.html about his own ethnic group could as well be happy or sad when they read his other articles.

I didnt mean to offend anyone but to keep this straight.

I posted Sanusi's article to make them see reason why it is not noteworthy to attack people unnecessarily because there are countless articles online that speaks bad about the major ethnic groups in Nigeria.


I just dnt understand Why you didnt make this same comment on his thread.
