THE FOLLOWING STATEMENTS UNDERSCORE EARLIER ALERTNESS ON THE FULIANISATION AND NORTHERNISATION AGENDA OF NIGERIA

THE FOLLOWING STATEMENTS UNDERSCORE EARLIER ALERTNESS ON THE FULIANISATION AND NORTHERNISATION AGENDA OF NIGERIA
Lifeless bodies of Christians killed by Fulani Herdsmen

(I) That the fulanization agenda is as old as Nigeria.

(2) The implementation of the agenda has been diverse in approach but consistent in it's drive. These include blackmail, lies, deceit, terror and divide-and-rule strategy.

(3) The indigenous nations of Southern and Central zones have manifested lack of collective alertness among themselves for so long.

(4) The consequences of the zero-collective alertness among these zones include the unreasonable attachment to an entity that guarantees only unrestrained threat of decimation to the individual and collective existence of the indigenous nations in the zones; the Fulani arrogance in pushing the so-called RUGA agenda in spite of it's rejection by Southern and Central zones, among others.

(5) If the indigenous nations of Southern and Central zones fail to respond to the AWAKE clarion calls by the few God-destined prophets among them and galvanize a collective alertness and appropriate response, fulanization and the decimation agenda will have free drive in some Southern and Central zones.

Obafemi Awolowo was one of the leaders from the Southern region of Nigeria who showed personal awareness of the grave incompatibilities between the Fulani dominated Muslim North and the Christian South; and he aptly expressed this in his book, "PATH TO NIGERIAN FREEDOM" (1947);  "a deep religious gulf runs between the Northern and Southern regions of the country. All these incompatibilities among various people militate against unification. The incompatibilities are real, not imaginary obstacles.”

He went further to warn that “those who place these groups under the same constitution ignore them at their own peril. More so as it appears, these incompatibilities tend to grow in size as those concerned become more educated and civilized. There is a big rift between the North and the South which the government itself is sedulously widening.”

The publication of the book was arguably meant to sensitize a wider group of persons especially in the South and the Middle/Central zones of Nigeria. If it did, neither Obafemi Awolowo himself nor the South and the Middle/Central zones in general took advantage of his observation and warning to galvanize collective alertness. Instead of insisting on separate countries for the North and the South, or at worse loose association under confederation, Obafemi Awolowo advocated federalism during the constitutional conferences in London that brought the two “groups under the same constitution.” Zik, another leading figure from the South in the struggle for Nigerian independence, showed awareness but not alertness when he advocated that: “there can be unity in diversity.”

Consequently, both leaders failed to get their people to be collectively alerted to the intrigues, chicanery of the North to dominate and subjugate the South in perpetuity; not even when some Fulani politicians “casually” referred to Tafawa Balewa as “Prime Minister in perpetuity.
In his ambition to be President of Nigeria even for one day, Obafemi Awolowo rubbished his own advice that those “who place these groups under the same constitution ignore them at their own peril,” when he drew the Yoruba race to join forces to unleash death on millions of innocent defenseless children, women and the aged of the Biafran race in hospitals, markets, hospitals and churches, using all manner of weapons- bombs, rockets that were never hitherto experienced in Africa; and starvation as a weapon of war.

He also instituted an economic policy aimed at emasculating Ndi-Igbo in particular and Biafrans in general at the end of the war simply because Nigeria made him Commissioner for Finance in Gowon’s junta government. He forgot that the same Northerners got Ibrahim Imam from Bornu to betray him when he was arrested, tried and jailed for treason. Did Awolowo not regard Ibrahim Imam as his close confidant? Awolowo also forgot that, but for Easterners (Biafrans), government and persons who insisted that the N.P.C led government that convicted him should not send him to prison in the North but to the East for fear that Awolowo might be poisoned in the North. Awolowo forgot that it was the North that pitched Akintola against him and rigged the 1964 General election in favour of Akintola which ignited the violence and orgy of death and destruction in Western Region from 1964 to 1966 January. Did Awolowo ever become President of Nigeria?

It is said that “from the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.” Few examples of statements by Northern leaders at various times will succinctly establish that the Fulani Caliphate of Northern Nigeria has severally revealed their intention to fulanize and enslave all the indigenous nations and races in the entire geographical entity called Nigeria.

In response to a letter from West African Students in London asking the North to cooperate with the South to achieve development and progress in 1942, Northern Emirs said: “Holding this country together is not possible except by means of the religion of the prophet. If they want political unity, let them follow our religion.” (Awolowo 1947). The above statement shows that the North was conscious of the incompatibilities of the various people in the entity called Nigeria even before independence; and that the only instrument to force the various people together was, according to them, by the religion of their prophet. Furthermore, they will be leaders while others will be followers. Leaders of the South and Middle Belt zones did not seem to have attached any importance to the Emirs’ statements.

If the sensibilities of South and Middle belt zones were not sufficiently aroused to collective alertness, the statement made by Ahmadu Bello on October 12, 1960 – eleven days after the declaration of Independence and reported by PARROT NEWSPAPER of 12th October 1960, ought to have aroused them. Perhaps, a section of the South was! The statement credited to Ahmadu Bello was: “The new Nation called Nigeria should be an estate from our great grandfather Uthman Dan Fodio. We must RUTHLESSLY prevent a change of power. We must use minorities in the North as willing tools and the South as conquered territories and never allow them to have control of their future.” (PARROT NEWSPAPER 12TH OCT., 1960, TRIBUNE 13TH NOV., 2002).

Some pertinent questions arise from the above statements, namely:
(1) Does the above statement not prove that the so-called independence to establish a democratic federal system like a sham as the amalgamation?

(2) Does it not rubbish the third line of the British scripted Nigerian first anthem: “…though tribe and tongue may differ in brotherhood we stand”? OR the line – “…where no man is oppressed”?

(3) Does it not prove that freedom minded persons cannot co-exist with persons whose intents and purposes in life are to conquer and subjugate others and ruthlessly too?

(4) Is it difficult to understand the subterranean factors in the Western region and Tiv riots of 1964 –1966? Or earlier ones?

(5) Were the minorities in the North used as instruments in the attempt to exterminate Biafrans between 1966 –1970?

(6) Will the minorities allow themselves to be used again as instruments of enslavement now and in future?

(7) Will the South allow themselves to be conquered by any group?

Mallam Bala Garuba was a prominent member of (N.P.C) Northern Peoples Congress in the sixties. West African Pilot of Wednesday 30th December 1964, reported Mallam Bala Garuba to have made the following statements:

“The conquest to the sea is now in sight. When our god-sent Ahmadu Bello said some years ago that our conquest will reach the sea shore of Nigeria, some idiots in the South were doubting it's possibility. Today have we not reached the sea? Lagos is reached. It remains Port-Harcourt. It must be conquered and taken after December 30, 1964.”

“I remember when the N.C.N.C and the A.G. were boasting about their day-dreaming of snatching power from us. Today their great brains are in our bag. Imagine such personalities as Akintola, Benson, Davis, Kayode, Ankran, Okezie, Okwuosa, Otoba, Akinjide, Olowofoyeku and the great mathematician Dr. Obi.” “I still hope that it will not be long when Okpara, Adegbenvo and Aminu Kano will come to be. Osadebe and other Midwest leaders are half way to us. As for Awolowo, he will spend the last days of his imprisonment there for his inordinate ambition.” “…we must do anything possible to win the coming Jihad. But, we must keep our whether eyes open on those from the West as they could do anything at any time…” “The time has come. We are going to show these intellectual fools that we are only in the morning of our leadership of this country. Our only obstacles are the Ibos. They have played their cards. They will sink.” (Mallam Garuba of N.P.C. – West African Pilot 30th December, 1964).

The educated leaders from the South must have been aware of the above statements. Probably, some of them were comfortable being regarded and treated as educated idiots in Fulani caliphate bag. Whereas, Bala Garuba advised the North to keep their “whether eyes open,” leaders from the South acted as if collective alertness was not necessary and therefore not needed. They consequently went into slumber on their complacency – beds. If Bala Garuba is still alive, he may desire to add such names as Umahi, Okezie Ikpeazu, Okorocha, Ugwuanyi, Obiano, Rotimi Amaechi, Bola Tinubu, Osinbanjo, Oshiomhole and Orji Uzor Kalu among lackies and slaves in their bag. Bala Garuba did not talk of “bags” – plural, but bag – singular.

This certainly ensured close monitoring, compliance and effective sanction and without room for preferential treatment. Bala Garuba’s statement contains extreme rabid pathological hatred the Fulani Caliphate has for the Igbo race. These supplies an answer to the reason why they keep annihilating Ndigbo in particular and Biafrans in general who live in their midst even without provocation. For Bala Garuba “anything possible” should be done “to win the coming jihad” no matter how sordid, criminal and inhumane the action may be. Jihad has been their plan ever since the criminal amalgamation in 1914. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB and the entire Biafra nation are targeted for ethnic extermination because Biafra means obstruction to their fulanization agenda. The efulefu governors in the South East and other Judases in Biafraland refused to understand this reality.

Yakubu Gowon, Theophilus Danjuma and Jeremiah Useni are among the Middle Belt leaders who allowed themselves as willing instruments in the Fulanization agenda that was shaped as war against Biafrans, to keep Nigeria one even when Gowon had declared that “the basis for Nigerian unity does not exist;” a war that destroyed the lives of more than five millions of defenseless Biafran women and children. Olusegun Obasanjo cannot claim he had no knowledge of the fulanization and Islamization agenda rearing their heads when he was the Head of State. At least, some eminent Southern and Middle Belt leaders under the auspices of NADECO called for the convocation of sovereign national conference 1999–2009 when Obasanjo was Head of State to address this issues permanently but he (Obasanjo) frustrated every move.

Femi Fani-Kayode in his paper:– "On The Imperatives of A Sovereign National Conference" (Comet Newspaper of 18th March, 2001), drew Olusegun Obasanjo’s attention to the looming fulanization agenda and it's attendant injustices, ethno-religious cleansing and subjugation. In all these, Olusegun Obasanjo’s answer showed more of a person who cared more about himself than for those he was meant to lead: “I cannot surrender the sovereignty that was given to me by the Nigerian people.” (Olusegun Obasanjo February 2001).

The fulanization of the Presidency at Aso Rock, the fulanization of the Military and para-military and other sensitive positions in Nigeria by Buhari and the impunity therefrom, was not a one day affair but started from May 29th, 2015. Southern and Middle Belt leaders were not perturbed as long as their individual interests were taken care of from the crumbs from the caliphate table. Even as at date, there is still an unbelievable non-collective alertness in the Southern and Middle Belt regions to the numerous threats to their collective existence!
