Asari Dokubo and The War Drummers

Asari Dokubo should be left to roam freely. He is a necessity and a great asset to the Southerners. The truth should be told, the name Nigeria is a territorial fraud and an artificial fiefdom, where prince are made to crawl while the slaves ride on horses. What do I mean by this? I’ll explain shortly but let’s travel back in time: Sir Ahmadu Bello, the Gambari Prince of the North and the leader of the Northern Peoples’ Congress said this: “The new nation called Nigeria should be an estate of our great grandfather Othman Dan Fodio. We must ruthlessly prevent a change of power. We use the minorities in the north as willing tools and the south as a conquered territory and never allow them to rule over us and never allow them to have control over their future.” – Parrot Newspaper October 12, 1960. I wasn’t born in the 1960s, neither did I witness the late Ahmadu Bello making the statement above, but this is a statement no Northern Elite or institution in Nigeria has debunked. The Northerners, more than any tribe in Nigeria has ruled this nation both in despotism and democracy. Never at anytime has the southerners revolt against any Northern leadership in the name of “We Must Rule.” Today where a southerner in the person of President Jonathan through accidental arrangement came to the sit of power, we have come to sadly assume that the Northern elite has this “born-to-rule-mentality” just like their idol Ahmadu Bello was quoted. Nigeria today is serviced through the oil wells in the South. The Northerners more than any tribe in Nigeria has looted the wealth of this nation and yet they are insatiable of this. As if looting was the only act of aggression they have committed, they even took their aggression further with their ethnic jingoism to engage in a spurious ethnic cleansing through religious riots and now, terrorism to cause anarchy for the sitting government of Nigeria. Every bloodbath that took place in Northern Nigeria saw to it that the Southerners and non-muslims were wiped-out while their Northern counterparts walk freely on the streets of the South. What more can be defined as an ultimate turpitude than this? The average Northerner sees the Southerner as a potential enemy that must be subdued, conquered and ruled but at the same time, they insist on the continuity of this ticking time-bomb of a coerced settlement, Nigeria, simply because they are unable to do without the oil wells in the South . And thanks to the predominance of the Islamic indoctrination in the North, to the Northern muslim (as stated in the Qu’ran) a non-muslim is a “najis” (filthiest thing ever). To the staunch Northern muslim, being ruled by a non-muslim is a taboo, hence, the birth of boko haram. To even prove this further, Gen Buhari, a former head of state and a supposed Statesman and patriot called a terrorist organization like Boko Haram “Freedom fighters”. How can any reasonable man call terrosists freedom fighters? A group that has vehemently made their stance known, that they want Nigeria to be Islamized, is this what Buhari calls freedom fighting? During an interview on BBC Hausa , Buhari was quoted to have said “If what happened 2011 should happen again in 2015, by the grace of God, the dog and the baboon would all be soaked in blood.” Why must the North be habitual in threatening the entire nation? Before the election of President Goodluck Jonathan in 2011, the likes of Adamu Ciroma said that the North will make the country ungovernable for any Southerner that emerges as President, today, we are gifted with the Boko Haram menace. What makes Asari Dokubo any worse than him or his fellow war drummers? Asari Dokubo comes from a part of the country that have known negligence all through its years of existence. He comes from the minority ethnic group whose natural resources the Northerners have looted and impoverished over the years and yet when his kinsman is opportune to occupy the sit of power, the same Northerners who have looted the resources of his land are threatening violence and hell like it is the same way the Southerners did to them in all their many years of evil, corruption and plunder? To put it mildly, the North is an ingrate of a neighbour; talking about the proverbial people that bites the finger that fed them. Asari Dokubo has every reason to reciprocate every threat and beat the war drums. The Northern elites have been over-tolerated, such that they have over-estimated their importance. What manner of madness is this? When the Southerners want to disintegrate and become an autonomous region, they’ll say no way, now the South wants to get a shot at power, they are giving everyone sleepless nights. It is hightime someone informs these unuseful Northern cabal that we are satiated with their dramas and buffonery! Gone are the days of “BORN TO RULE”, “I AM SUPERIOR”, etc if they cannot live peacefully with the rest of the nation, they should just disintegrate. We are sick of their nonsense! Nobody is willing to tolerate their excesses any longer. Gone are the days we use to babysit jackasses, now its an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth! Please let Asari Dokubo be; for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction! Asari Dokubo is reacting in tandem with natural irritability which all the Southerners do share!!
