In a country we are tagged as one Nigeria, Paulinus should be able to fly from Benin to JFK airport USA and Emeka should be able to fly from Enugu to Gatwick airport UK.
It is an error to have only Lagos and Abuja connect on international flights. These two airports are seated in a Yoruba and Fulani enclave. West and North.
It is an error to have Emeka who has 23 containers in a cargo ship berth in Apapa when we could have eased the stress on our death trap roads by creating the water way to have that ship dock directly in Onitsha which has one of Africa’s largest market. Don’t tell me its not possible, check countries that have built artificial water ways that are even now seen from space. Waterways that never existed before, it happened in Panama, Egypt, Iraq and Libya to mention a few. The river Niger is suppose to be a blessing to the entire country. These projects sometimes span up to two decades in construction but a system that we currently operate will NEVER make a Fulani buy into such a project knowing that the site is not in Kano or Katsina.
These and many more is the reason why agitations such as IPOB and MEND will never cease to germinate in our country. Every body wants a piece of the cake which is predominantly supplied bya few states in the Niger Delta and South East and of the coast of our waters in the west.
Killing these people have proven not to be a lasting solution. Oppressing them to acceot the status quo will not end it either. Address the core issues. Arrest Nigeria back from the fulani/British interests by delibrating on the restructure of these paradigm that favours only a section of jihadist migrants who originally are not even from our land.
Whether Nnamdi Kanu is successfully assasinated as was done to Thomas Sonkara, Isaac Boro, Ken Saro-Wiwa, the struggle for liberation and equality by a given set of people will always stare Nigeria in the face. Kill more and more will rise until the day it will of course and more certainly bring about the next civil war in a matter of time.
Let us not be sentimental about this, oil in Texas belongs to Texans not to the USA. Return us to resource control and let each federating units remit royalties and taxes to the FG, let every region develop at her own pace. This will drive a healthy competition to see each region struggle to be more economically and infrastructural
But a lot of us are comfortable in a system where they value their cows more than us. We must begin to support a system that approves a change of this fraudulent arrangement that cedes power of the “Ayes” over the “Nays” to one region in both the National Assembly and House of Representatives
This issues needs to be addressed and unless we address them, the agitations will never end, not anytime soon I’d add. Nnamdi is not the problem. The structure and arrangement will always breed his kind and we should be happy it is not an armed struggle like we saw in Sudan, Sierra Leone, and Syria which leads to massive unwanted deaths and destructions of anything on sight.
Good morning. I am PauLinus, the SUN of TRUTH.
