Clearly, there is a Fulanization Agenda: This Interview settles it

Gov Bala Mohammed


The Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed, has told the Channels TV Sunrise Daily that the National Lifestock Transformation Plan (NLTP) would accommodate Fulani herdsmen from all over Africa.

The governor was addressing the controversy surrounding the scheme, particularly “the mistrust and suspicion surrounding the scheme”. 

According to the governor, Bauchi State has over 3,000 sqkm of “lush vegetation land in the Savana” to serve the nation that is not currently being used, which can be used for the program.

The governor stated that the state plans to engage with the Netherlands to bring about “best practices” in the scheme.

However, when the governor addressed the issue of concern regarding whether only Nigerian Fulani would be settled in the NLTP lands, the following exchange followed:

Gov Mohammed:  “the Fulani man is a global or African person. He moves from the Gambia or Senegal and his nationality is just a Fulani man. As a person, I have my relations in the Cameroun, but they are also Fulani because from the maternal side I’m a Fulani man. And that is why we want to educate people. A Fulani man sees himself as a Bayelsan; as somebody coming from the Niger delta, because he speaks the Niger delta language which you and I don’t.  And we would have to take this as part of our own heritage, something that is African. That we cannot just close the border and say the fulani man is just a Nigerian; no . Most cases the crisis are precipitated by those outside Nigeria. When there is a reprisal, it is not the Fulani man that is within Nigeria that causes it. It is that culture of getting revenge which is embedded in the tradition of the Fulani man that attracts reprisals from all over the … “

Sunrise Daily Question: “Does that mean that those Fulani who are from outside the country can come in and this plan would accommodate them as well?”

Gov Mohammed: “Yes that is what we want to do, but it has to be done through sensitization, telling them you have to buy into the project. You use the language, and the culture to be able to convince them… criminalization of pastoralism is the problem we have in this project.
It would require people they believe in, who they can trust; people like us from that part of the country.”

Sunrise DailyQuestion: “Is the place going to be fenced so that not just anyone can come in and stay there…?”

Gov Mohammed:  “No no no it is going to be a colony …”

Sunrise Daily Question: “But you understand why people are concerned about security issues happening over time…?”

Gov Mohammed: “These forests are there anyway. If you don’t occupy them and create a colony out of them, they create places for the criminals. And today, that is why you have the Sambisa forest because it not being utilized.”
 
Sunrise Daily Question: “Why should federal government use resources from this country to accommodate Fulani men who are not Nigerians?”

Gov Mohammed: “You see as I’ve said, we are already accommodating them. Do you delineate and know who is a Fulani man from Nigeria? They are all Nigerian because their identity and citizenship is Nigerian even though we have relations all over the world; all over Africa. And so presumably they are Nigerians. I think you get me. That is the misunderstanding. They move from one place to another and they are relations, and kith and kin from all over the country and even outside the country. That is why our own population is fluid. You cannot certainly say this is the population of Nigeria.”

Sunrise Daily Question: “So these whole things were presented in NEC and NEC agreed and accepted to do this?”

Gov: Once decisions are taken, you don’t give dissenting view.  We look at the peculiarities. Some of us think that it is a very good thing...”

I shall return later to give my take on this ...
Keep checking this thread.

There is more to this Ruga, soon it will be exposed.

The first thing that must be said is that the governor came across as duplicitous.
His own words give evidence to the fact that his intentions (and of those behind this program) is to deceive Nigerians as much as possible.
Take this quote below and think about it for a second.

Quote

The governor first claims that the Fulani that conduct reprisal attacks are non-Nigerian Fulani, but then in the same statement asserts that the culture of revenge is "embedded in the tradition of the Fulani man".
So, which is it, governor? Is it the culture of the Nigerian Fulani or the non-Nigerian Fulani to undertake revenge killings? Why do you then normalize the culture of revenge killings among ALL Fulani (going by the later part of your statement above)?
More importantly, since you implied that revenge killing is conducted by non-Nigerian Fulani (in the first part of your sentence above) why do you then want these foreign Fulanis to be given free pass into Nigeria? Why do you want our collective money (money raised from mainly Southern states anyway) to be used to resettle foreign Fulanis into Nigeria?

Well, lets continue with the analysis...

Again, I don't know who the governor thinks he is deceiving by making this look as if it is in Nigeria's national interest that the non-Nigerian Fulani are "convinced to buy into the program" to resettle in Nigeria. Funded by our money.

This statement is very annoying and provocative.

I just read somewhere that select states (mainly in the south : Lagos, Anambra, Rivers, Ogun, and Kano) have been ordered to start cashless society to enable the federal government to collect more levies/taxes from bank transactions from those states as a pilot scheme. These monies will likely find its way toward this Fulanization scheme to convince foreign Fulani to move massively into Nigeria for a purpose that is clearly Fulani-centric.

As a Southern Nigerian, and an Eastern Nigerian, this scheme is offensive and provocative to the bones, and will never see the light of day in any Southern state.

But the main aim of the program is a bit afar off, and those behind it think that no one knows where they are really headed. I believe they are wrong.

But let's continue...

AHA! There comes that word which preceded subsequent lies and deceits : COLONY

When the whole thing started, it was called a colony. Nigerians kicked against the term, and the planners of the scheme quickly changed the name to RUGA (rural grazing area).

But, when Nigerians kicked against Ruga alleging that it is a Fulani word for Fulani settlement, the planners again changed proposed another scheme National Livestock Transformation Plan (NLTP). 

But the fact is that the aim or goal remains the same: TO BRING IN FOREIGN FULANIS AND RESETTLE THEM IN NIGERIA under the pretext of ending the so called "farmer-herders clashes".

Essentially, what appears to have happened, is that Nigerians were killed, terrorized, raped, and are being overawed into ceding their ancestral lands for us to resettle foreign Fulani fleeing from desert encroachment.

That Nigerian forests are vacant doesn't mean that it must be used to settle a single ethnic group, especially an ethnic group that is not aboriginal to the "Niger area" that became Nigeria. The Fulani came into Nigeria in early 1800s; they came from Guinea, and the governor conceded that much in his statements. The question then should be why should Fulani from all over Africa be resettled in Nigeria using Nigerian national resources?
This point must be made.

Again, this statement is very DANGEROUS, provocative, and even treasonous.

How can this governor talk about Nigeria as if it is a Fulani private estate?

The Fulani are not aboriginal to Nigeria. They came with the Uthman Dan Fodio Jihad of early 19th century. So one can say that they in fact NOT Nigerian. But due to the fact that sizable number of them were in Nigeria at independence, that is how we have Nigerian Fulanis.

What this man is saying is analogous to saying that because we have some Lebanese who have been in Nigeria for 100 years, that the whole Lebanese scattered all over the world are free to move into Nigeria.
I don't see any differences between the two instances.

What he is saying is that there is no Nigerian country delineated by borders and controlled by a constitution (even if a dubious one).  If anybody ever thought that Nigeria is a country with constitition and borders, this statement clearly torpedoes all of that!

Apparently, ALL AFRICANS are Nigerians according to the governor!

The last time I checked, Nigeria balked at signing the AfCFTA and only signed a few months ago.

The reason Nigeria balked was because we did not want goods from all over the world to flow into Nigeria unchecked.

So, why is Nigeria now open to Fulani migration alone?

Why not other Africans move into Nigeria enmasse?

Now, you understand why IPOB beat up Senator Ekweremadu and have placed a so called "travel ban" on South East governors. Though there is no evidence that this NLTP will see the light of day in any part of Southern Nigeria, the fact that the governors did not speak out openly against it makes IPOB conclusions (or suspicions) valid.
But for me, it only proves that we are not in a democracy, since nobody could dissent to this within the NEC meetings.

Again, this is a duplicitous statement with sinister motives.
So, suddenly a Fulani is from Niger delta?
How come?

What this statement shows is the goal (or the ultimate agenda) which is to settle the Fulani in as many parts of Nigeria as possible and as close to the sea as possible!

WHy BAYELSA? Some would say because of the oil and sea access.

We are not fools, regardless of the fact that our politicians have been idiots, the people are not fools.

This statement was already preceded by a forum article here in Nigerialog some time ago:

THIS ARTICLE:Fulani can never be indigenous to Eastern Nigeria. Here are the reasons

It is a settled fact that the Fulani (along with their never forgiving spirit of reprisal killings ) can NEVER fit into EASTERN NIGERIA.

At independence, Nigeria was formed by THREE countries: Eastern Nigeria, Northern Nigeria, and Western Nigeria.

Today, nothing has changed. What changed is that one country "Northern Nigeria" is scheming to swallow up another "Eastern Nigeria". Elements from Northern Nigeria keep working to swallow up the rest of the two founding countries.

But those who are scheming this are not being realistic, because in Eastern Nigeria there are about 80 million people there. Most of them are not happy with schemes like this, and the whole of Fulani in Africa cannot stand them if a war should break out.

It is as if some people are working day and night to provoke war in Nigeria.

Those people should retreat and dump their plans into a trash bin somewhere because Nigeria (and the peoples inside it) are too big for them to swallow.

Concluded!
