Why North Does Not Want Nigeria To Break Up— Arewa Consultative Forum

The Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) has revealed that Northern Nigeria will never support secession calls because there's nothing wrong with the extant structure in the country.

Across the country, calls for secession have continued to gain momentum.

There are the Indigenous People of Biafra in the South-East while there are agitators for the independence of the Oduduwa nation in the South-West.

But in an interview with SaharaReporters on Monday, ACF's spokesman, Emmanuel Yawe, said the North can never support secessionists because Nigeria is relatively okay the way it is. 

Yawe further stated that secession attempts would only worsen the problems ravaging the country and could even lead to a civil war.

He said, “There is no way any part of Nigeria will secede without a civil war. We are so integrated that it is impossible for us to sit at a conference table and allow each part to go their ways, it's not possible, it's not a tea party, there will be war. If any part of Nigeria wants to secede, there will be war, maybe even more serious war than what we had before between 1967 and 1970. So, if anyone is calling for secession, he's calling for war.

“And we in the North fought the war to keep this country together, so it will be a contradiction for those of us who tried to stop this country from breaking up to now be engaging in activities that will break this country; we don't want this country to break up. Nigeria is a great country as it is. We have problems but those problems are not enough for us to break up.

“We believe these problems can be remedied and these problems will only be multiplied if we go into war. We love the country. We don't like what some people are doing with the country but for us to have come from the biggest black nation on earth, it is an honour and we should try to preserve this honour. We should try to see how we can use the resources we have to build a great world power. The rest of Africa is looking up to us and they feel sad when we behave as if we want to break up the country they all look up to. We don't want the country to break up. It is better the way it is, even with all the problems.”

The national leader of the pan-Yoruba group, Afenifere, Ayo Adebanjo, had also earlier explained why the North would never want the country to break up.

Adebanjo, who had always consistently called for restructuring, recently condemned the unyielding attitude of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to calls for constitutional reforms and resource control.

Adebanjo had over time explained that the current constitution favourably places Northern Nigeria over the South.

He was quoted as saying, “...The constitution we have now is an imposed constitution by the military and the problem we are having in the country now is because of this constitution.

“People should get that clear. It appears both Garba Shehu and his boss, Muhammadu Buhari, don’t want to address the question. I have said that this constitution is a fraudulent constitution; it is not the constitution we agreed on at independence. It is not the constitution Sir Ahmadu Bello, Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe and Chief Obafemi Awolowo, the founding fathers of this country agreed on at independence. Whether you are talking about resource control, state police, all these agitations have been settled and that is what is causing the crisis in the country today.

“So, when the military said they are going back to the barracks in 1999, Afenifere and the National Democracy Coalition (NADECO) said ‘send us back to the constitution you met us with because this is not the constitution of our founding fathers.’ So, the question of restructuring is to restructure the country back to federalism which our founding fathers agreed on.

“This unitary form of government with all its impositions which have enslaved the South to the North was imposed on us by the military.

“It is the military that created more states in the North; it is the military that created more local governments in the North. It is the military that said that revenues would be shared on the basis of local governments and you people are not addressing it. These are questions you need to answer; why is that so? You don’t stay in a club that is not favourable to you.”

This news provides an opportunity to show the irreconcilable differences in VALUES and MINDSET between the Fulani-led Northern Nigeria (core Arewa Northern states) and other parts of Nigeria.

I shall show one example:

This Northern Nigerian man sees a situation whereby THOUSANDS of people die every year from terror as "relatively okay the way it is".

In the South, particularly in the East, the OPPOSITE understanding applies. In the East, current situation is TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE.

The differences in VALUES between the East and the North are VAST and IRRECONCILABLE.

This alone proves that Nigeria has no business being one country.

Let's get this straight, this man is saying that whether the rest of the country likes it or not, the yearly sacrifice of thousands of human beings in the name of a country must continue or else a war will happen.

He is threatening war indirectly, but is also blaming those who want to peacefully put an end to the yearly orgy of human sacrifice.

Well, this particular strategy has been used by the "North" to cage the country, looting it mindlessly and killing those who challenge it. It worked for decades, but methinks that it has run out of gas, finally.

Even those who used to believe in a restructured Nigeria has now finally seen that even such a Nigeria would be caging them into Fulani forced marriage. How can you enter into marriage with someone (whether male or female) who tells you that divorce can only happen through murder-suicide?
No sane person would contemplate such marriage.
And even those who unwittingly ended up in such marriage will do ANYTHING to end it, even if heavens fall.

This man's views is exactly why I advised IPOB to understand the scope of the challenge. To understand that mere 10,000 men cannot solve this problem. Thank God that there are tens of millions of men now in Biafra unlike during the last civil war.

Methinks that to exit Nigeria, Biafra needs to prepare to fight and defeat these types of men in their own land.
Being ready and prepared to defeat this type of people will make it possible to force them to reason.

To agree to remain part of this type of Nigeria means to surrender future generations to slavery.

BTW, the Nigerian flag is the Arewa flag. The Oduduwa flag and Biafran flags have no sign of Nigeria in them.
Go figure that!

I personally believe that there will always be a "Nigeria", but mostly one formed by core sharia North and Niger republic. That is why Buhari built a rail between Northern Nigeria and Niger republic.

There is ethnic cleansing going on in Nassarawa state as in other parts of Nigeria.

READ THIS NEWS!

Yet, these Arewa people say that a war will be fought to divide Nigeria. What other war are they talking about when thousands of people are being killed or driven from their ancestral lands YEARLY in Nigeria?

Methinks that the self-identifying nations in Nigeria should now fight back because only then would the world know that a civil war has been going on in Nigeria silently.

Only then would the world sponsor referendum to divide Nigeria.
