Federal Republic of Northern Nigeria by Jesse Bay

Ok, you may enjoy and luxuriate in your ignorance. I am not under a contract to share it with you.

So the president asked for the World Bank to concentrate its loans for development in the North East of Nigeria.

These are the issues for me.

The name of the country is the Federal REPUBLIC of Nigeria.

That means there are FEDERATING units which make up the Republic. That have needs. They also have responsibilities. One of such responsibilities is to be accountable for their own economy. That we are in a federation doesn’t mean that you abandon the task to feed, clothe and preserve yourself.

And you don’t have to saddle the other federating units with your problems. They are not your creator, father, mother or god.

This is the crux of self-determination fights since the days of Adaka Boro.

Now that we have established that for the kindergartens, we can move on to the other aspects of responsibility and duty.

Nigeria refused to evolve a proper federal fiscal system since Aguiyi Ironsi did the unthinkable in the 60s.

So we have been feeding off the huge, crude breasts of the Niger Delta peoples. This feeding frenzy lottery has been won by the denizens of the North by a mile.

Not only has the oil funds been the mainstay of the Northern States since the groundnut pyramids disappeared, the people who have arrogated the power to seize this massively wealthy breasts as ‘administrators’ have largely been from the North.

So you would expect that the unequal and even illegal appropriation of somebody else’s wealth would be used to develop the North.

But no.

We were given the gift of 5 million Almajiris. Free roaming kids with no care, education, love or ability to make a livelihood.

From the ranks of these hordes came the Boko Haram sect. Of course, social deprivation, mixed with religion always produce disasters in abundance. At least, 70% of the massive social upheavals have had their beginnings from the North.

Fulani Herdsmen.
Maitatsine.
Kafanchan.
Zangon Kataf.
Bauchi.
Boko Haram.
Zak Zakky.

Now, the failure of governments in the North to educate kids, in spite of allocating, disproportionately, more local councils to themselves than any other region – a way of cornering the Niger Delta wealth – produced millions of kids ready to become additional problems to other regions.

Lagos has complained about the unsustainable influx of low skilled Northern youths into the place. There aren’t enough gate men jobs to go round and too many motorcycles as taxis.

In a nutshell, the North East that President Buhari has asked special treatment for, came as a result of decades of failure on the path of Northern governments to do the needful.

And we have all paid for their selfish, inane and irresponsible decisions or indecisions.

A. More of the Niger Delta oil cash would not have been spent to defend the North East unnecessarily if the right things were done earlier.

B. The other federating units have lost sons, dads, daughters, and mums in the service of defending the North East. We are paying lives for the sin of not educating kids and giving them hope. Something we already paid cash for by denying ourselves.

Most of the foot soldiers of Boko Haram have come from the ranks of the Almajiri. So these are the ones shooting and killing our boys and girls.

These kids are the ones being used to destroy their own corner of Nigeria. It’s not the Yoruba, Tiv, Urhobo, Efik or Benin youths doing this.

We have Agberos in my corner of Nigeria. We are yet to have the need for Nigerian soldiers to die from their activities.

C. It is this perpetual spoon feeding of the North that is fuelling the secessionist ideas. The spokespeople of the Northern lottery winners make matters worse by making incendiary comments. Just listen to the Junaid muppet.

D. The lopsided nature of government and civil service appointments, favouring the North is another problem. Buhari typified this by his contract awards while in PTF. And this administration has seen more than necessary of the lopsided appointments. I don’t know how you expect the Ijaw to feel.

E. On top of all of that, justice is buried while we are being asked to foot the bill of the perfidious jamborees. Now, imagine that some Northern governors were implicated in the Boko Haram debacle. Were they properly investigated?

All the agencies to do the investigations are probably too lopsided in their appointments to even bother.

So, back to the divisive, ethnic, and illegal request to the IMF by the president;

WHEN THE BILL FOR THE REPAYMENT OF THE LOANS IS TO BE MADE, ALL THE FEDERATING UNITS WILL BE REQUIRED TO PAY UP.

THAT WILL BE US CLEANING UP AFTER THEIR CORRUPT BEHINDS.

That’s you and your kids forking out for loans you never asked for.

NEVER MIND THAT SUCH LOANS OUGHT TO BE SHARED OUT TO THE FEDERATING UNITS. NEVER MIND THAT THESE NORTHERN STATES DO NOT TAKE PRISONERS WHEN IT COMES TO SHARING THE VAT MONEY UNDER THE ‘DO OR DIE’, ‘FOR BETTER OR WORSE’ GUISE.

I am merely helping you to break things down so you can understand.
