We will never leave Anambra state, Hausa community vows

Awka- DESPITE alleged directive by a section of the Northern leaders for their indigenes in the South to relocate to the North in view of alleged insecurity challenges, Hausa indigenes in the industrial town of Nnewi have said they were not contemplating relocating from the state.

Recall that some members of the Northern Elders Forum and the Coalition of the Northern Groups had asked Fulani herdsmen to leave the Southern part of Nigeria following alleged threat against them.

But the secretary to the Hausa community in Nnewi, Alhaji Sani Suleman said it would be difficult to leave the Southern part of the country where they had spent decades of their lives and have been living peacefully with their hosts.

According to him, some of them had lived in the region for more than forty years, insisting that anybody calling for their relocation to the North at this time was mistaken.

He said: “We have been living in the East since 1986 and it will not be possible for someone, after settling down in an area for decades, to just wake up and relocate to his state of origin.

“The Almighty Allah that created Nigeria and brought us together knows the reason he did so. One person cannot just break Nigeria for his personal interest.

“As we are living here in Nnewi, so are people from other parts of Nigeria living in the North and there is no way one can just get up and say Easterners go, Northerners go. It is not possible.”

Suleman said no fewer than 5,000 Hausas were residing in Nnewi and its environs, adding that their greatest preoccupation was to secure parcels of land to build mosques, cemetery and market.

“We have secured a piece of land in Nnewi to build a market, though not big enough. We have appealed to Igwe Nnewi, Chief Kenneth Orizu III to help us secure pieces of land for our needs, but he told us that land belongs to government. We have also appealed to the state government to allocate land to us and we are still waiting for government response,” he said.

Well, the Igbo have no problem with PEACEFUL Northerners, especially Hausa (Hausa are NOT Fulani, and the distinction must be made). The Igbo have problem with FULANI terrorists masquerading as cow herdsmen, killing farmers and raping women. Those ones MUST leave the East (Biafra).

There is also nothing wrong with acquiring land for market, HOWEVER acquiring land for a MOSQUE will have to go through the same level of difficulty that Igbos face in building churches in Kano and other key Islamic cities of Northern Nigeria. Nnewi is a core Igbo CHRISTIAN city. If you are allowed to build a mosque there, the entire Igboland may be in danger of islamization (we have a right to fear this just like you fear christianization in the North). Keep in mind that Muslims lie to get what they want. So, there is no way of knowing what you really plan to do with the mosque in the future.

Nobody will tell a peaceful person to leave, there are, hidden agenda to the stories. The people that want out of Igboland are the Fulani.
