Some are cut out for the suffering and do not care about it. The North never told us they do not like suffering and poverty.
All they want is power. I spoke to a Hausa Fulani friend of mine last night, who spoke what he described as some truths to me.
He said, you Igbos have commerce and industry. Your people travel all over the world, many send money back to their parents and their communities, from their diasporan jobs.
The South West has commerce also, education, thriving Airports and Seaports.
The Middle belt has agriculture and food, and we accommodate them by giving them jobs.
So, we must leave power to them in the North. That power, is all they have to survive on. That whether you guys leave power for us or not, we have designed a foolproof means to take power and hold on to it till 2031. He said that power to the North is not a desire or want, but a genuine need for the survival of the Northerner. That in the next 48-hours, I will see what will happen, and how easily Buhari will be declared winner. I said impossible. He said just watch.
He told me that the North suffered while Obasanjo and Jonathan were in power. He said OBJ retired all their Generals. OBJ gave the Ministry of Finance to a Southerner for the first time, that Jonathan did same. That if not for El-Rufai and Ribadu putting their foot down in 2007, that Obasanjo was almost going to hand power over to a Southerner, in the name of Peter Odili. He said that that singular move by El-Rufai and Ribadu, will make one of them President, after Buhari, in 2023.
He said the North will never go back to playing second fiddle. Their experience from 1999 to 2015, is not one they will forget in a while. That the North loves Buhari, because he gives all his appointments to Northerners. That whenever a Northerner is in charge of a sector, they recruit and promote Northerners, and its effects last for more than 20 years, and help their people survive, which is why they love and admire Buhari’s approach to appointments.
He went on to say that Atiku is from an unrecognised Adamawa State, and is almost a Kanuri. That him and his restructuring agenda, will never be allowed to rule. That he knows it, and all the North know it, which is why the elections in the North are peaceful and there is no fighting, thuggery and killing. That the North know that Atiku’s policies will advance the South and send the North into deep poverty, not on purpose, but by sharing the power, so they will not let him on board. That PDP shot themselves in the foot by choosing Atiku. A man from the North West, Tambuwal or Kwankwaso, would have done it, and kept power in the North for them, but Atiku is far too exposed.
He even went as far as telling me that the South should forget 2023, and 2027. That the North have agreed that the South will not have power again till 2031, at the earliest, and so it shall be. By which time, they will have Fulani Emirates in cattle colonies in Ebonyi, Oyo, and Edo State, whether we like it or not.
They have told Ribadu and El-Rufai to warm up, that it will be one of them in 2023, most likely the former, who is being kept away from controversy.
I asked what about Tinubu and Osinbajo. He laughed louder than ever. He described Tinubu as the biggest Southern fool alive. He said they in the North were surprised that he would be fighting for Buhari’s second term, after all Buhari did to him in his first four year term. He had none of his Ministerial appointments approved, and was shut completely out. All it took was Buhari attending his birthday party, for his heart to melt. His VP was also shut out and is continuously disgraced in Aso Rock. The only VP in the history of Nigeria that cannot see the President without going through an administrative staff, the Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari. He said they do not trust Osinbajo, hence keeping him out of sensitive meetings, and that he will never be President, except he is ready to wait for 2031, but he is not their type.
He said the game of divide and rule will be perfected after the 29th of May, as they seek to reduce Tinubu and prop up the likes of Fashola and a few others from the South West. He said by the time they finish with Tinubu, he will either go to jail or leave the party, to run under another party platform, but they do not care.
I said, so you really think Atiku will lose this election. He said yes, that the North are not fighting. They have chosen, and Atiku better go get back his monies from the Generals that he bribed to make him the concensus Candidate of the PDP, yet failed to consult them when choosing a VP.
I thanked him and said that Atiku will be the next President of Nigeria and all their evil plans will be destroyed. Let us all pray for Atiku and Obi’s victory. We have voted. All we have to do now is protect our votes and pray. If only Southerners would listen and Unite, the North would not have just evil plans against us.
