Our leaders say so when
there is a pipe for milking, after getting their share, then
tribalism, sectionalism and religious bias will come in.
Our leaders call for unity to fight for their right, but in
reality fighting for self interest. There are so many
problems facing the citizens in the North but none of them
have ever thought of solving this problem. In addition
within themselves if you are not from Kano, Katsina & Sokoto
you are not a Northerner yet. The time Chief Sunday Awoniyi
was appointed the chairman of the Arewa Consultative Forum,
prominent personnel from Kano was against his appointment,
being a Yoruba man. But he fails to remember he is from the
North, because he is not from the 3 state mentioned earlier.
In the North where some state governors denied the presence
of Christianís indigenous citizen in their state, which is a
capital lies. In the whole north there is no State without
Christianís indigenous citizen. In the few state of the
north where there is Islamic dominant, they take any places
that suit them to build their marquises, and 80% of the fund
comes from Government. But the Christian are not allowed to
build their churches, even erected ones where pulled down by
the government. Given propaganda to go and seek for
permission before they can build their churches. They were
even denied to sell a plot of land for church building. If
they apply for it; no one is even ready to listing to them.
Even with the older permit government fail to renew their
permit & C of O.
You will be an indigenous citizen of the state but being a
Christian you are even far back a 4th class citizen. They
are denied appointment in to government offices. Their
children were denied scholarship, and even admission into
government schools. They were denied recruitment into
Nigerian Police, Military, paramilitary and other federal
appointment. They were denied houses for renting; if they
were given to you, you are to be charge double of what
The North what happen to Bank of the North Limited, NNIL &
NNDC? Is nothing but a Religious sentiment, tribalism and
sectionalism within the so called North. Where is the unity?
By making me a 3rd or 4th class citizen in the north, why?
Do you think I will use my effort to vote for a northerner
to fight for a freedom I will not dance to it celebrations,
to fight for my enslavement. The problems that are
bedeviling the north is still untouched. Where are our
leaders, Politicians, Arewa Consultative Forum, Northern
Elders Forum & Traditional leaders? During religious crisis,
political crisis and other saga in the North, what did you
tell the northerners? As they are one in unity, not to kill
themselves. What effort did you do to educate and develop
them at all level? NON. But know we should unite and fight
for the north. The north which Cease to exist 20 years ago.
This will not come to existence and cannot mend, due to
selfish interest, religious barrier and sectionalism.
