Anybody that is still preaching that the problem of Nigeria is Yoruba, Hausa, Igbo or Fulani, etc, does not love Nigeria
The problem with Nigeria is that a group of people from each and every ethnic tribe is very selfish.
My grandfather was an Emir. Why was I in the pro-democracy movement fighting for June 12? Is (Moshood) Abiola from Kano ?
There are good Yoruba people, good Igbo people, good Hausa, good Fulani, good Nigerians. There are good people everywhere, and there are bad people everywhere, that’s the truth.
Every time you talk about division, when you divide Nigeria, do you know what will happen? In Delta Area, the people in Warri will say Agbor, you don’t have oil. When was the Niger Delta constructed as a political entity? Ten years ago, the Itshekiris were fighting the Urobos.
Isn’t that what was happening?
Now they have become Niger Delta because they have found oil. After, it will be, if you do not have oil in your village then you cannot share our resources.
The Yoruba were Ijebu, Owo, Ijesha, Akoko, Egba. When did they become one?
Were they not fighting and killing each other? Igbos, will call some Igbos Osu— outcast and slaves.
When did the North become one? Were they not killing themselves, even now?
The Colonialists came,put that together &said it is now called the Northern Nigeria. Do you know what happened?Our grand fathers were able to transform to being Northerners. We have not been able to transform to Nigerians.The fault is ours.
When we started the banking reform; the first thing I heard was that in Urobo land, there will be a curse of the ancestors. I said they (anycestors) would not answer. They said why? I said how many factories did Ibru build in Urobo land? So, why will the ancestors of the Urobo people support her?
There is no evidence statistically that any part of this country has produced good leaders. We talk ethnicity when it pleases us. It is hypocrisy.
The problem is: everywhere in this country, there is one Fulani, Hausa, Igbo, Yoruba, Edo and Itshekiri man, etc, whose concern is how to get his hands on the pile and how much he can steal.Whether it is in the military or in the civilian government, they sit down, they eat together. In fact, the constitution says there must be a thief—minister, appointed from every state.
where are you going to? You are not going to an industrial estate to work or school or mechanized farm.
You borrow money from China to invest in trains so that your citizens can ride on them and go for weddings and naming ceremonies. No factory to work. So where or how will you get returns on investment?
We have leadership problem and We need to choose leaders that are competent to do the job whether they come from us or not.
