Former Governor of Jigawa State, Sule Lamido was quoted last week as saying that Nigeria cannot break up because members of the elite are united in preserving their advantages over the masses irrespective of their differences of tribe and religion.
However his postulation may sound believable, but that is just one side of the story, the truth is “Nigeria is about to experience a new move of change. The first move paddled by the APC led FG is sweeping the most vulnerable of the society.
2021 will decide what direction the change will be. If the federal government continue with policies that are detrimental to the Nigerian Public, like what we are experiencing today, then I can assure you that there will be an uprising capable to sweep away this present state of the nation.
Yes, the Next move will sweep everyone standing in the way, of the wheel of positive progress and like a tornado it will sweep anyone and anything standing between you and your progress.
IPOB is like a moving train, the movement is unstoppable, just as no man born of a woman can stop a moving train so it is with the Biafra Movement to glory land.
Nigeria, he said, “is too weak to break. Who will break it? The ordinary person in Jigawa or the ordinary person in Sokoto or the ordinary person in Bayelsa? Is it the Igbo vulcaniser or the Yoruba woman selling kerosene by the roadside or the okada man in Delta? They don’t have the capacity to unite because they are burdened by poverty. We have taken away from them their dignity, their self-esteem, their pride and self-worth so that they cannot even organize.
“Up there, we (elite) unite . . . we will never allow Nigeria to break because once it breaks, we will lose. But the common man loses nothing. What is he losing? He is already in hell; he cannot lose anything more than this hell.”
Straight from the horse’s mouth! A candid admission that it is the elite, who run Nigeria’s affairs, that has kept “the common man” squalid, wretched and “in hell” despite the nation’s enormous oil wealth. We see the ruling elite quarrelling and calling each other bad names but it’s just a game intended to fool the public: in reality, they are quite united in quietly sharing the money and delivering little or nothing to their various constituencies. They have a stake in keeping the country exactly as it is, weak and confusing and easy to exploit.
Sule Lamido’s statement is a revelation; it is as if lightning suddenly flashed, pushing aside the darkness and revealing the entire landscape for one brief moment!👈
The season of change is just beginning, you will agree with me that when things fall apart, the centre can never hold.
Hence, nobody can stop the breaking that is coming if Nigeria continues to run its affairs like a zoological community.
