Social Thought: By Uncle Olusegun Obasanjo party 3
“Our people say you don’t strip a woman Unclad just to start looking. Nigeria has been stripped Unclad and with the RUGA monstrosity on the works, the next thing is to start the deployment of troops to protect RUGA in their various locations of development. It was bound to happen that the Fulani, who have been taking so much out of Nigeria and have succeeded in binding Nigeria hand and foot politically and economically, will take the wrong step into the abyss one day.
The logical culmination of all the rapaciousness would be the last-ditch attempt at the ultimate land grab, to seize the land belonging to indigenous communities and hand it over to Fulani. Internecine war on different fronts is therefore inevitable. Communities will rage to keep their land or lose it to their external shame and regret. Communities, particularly in Igbo land will rather choose to be annihilated than lose their land to hostile and predatory people. Fulani has no land in Nigeria because they are not indigenous to Nigeria. The decision by the Fulani to seize land by force in Nigeria can only lead to war in the many places where this seizure will happen. The people must resist as of necessity. They have done so in the Central Africa Republic and reduced the country to rubble and they will do it again in Nigeria. Buhari will compel to deploy police and soldiers to defend the settlement and war will be declared everywhere there in RUGA settlement in Nigeria. Fulani has no land to hold here and protest in Nigeria. In fact, Fulani has no stake or investment in the project called Nigeria and will not care if Nigeria burns, in fact, Fulani will be very willing to let Nigeria burn if the people are not willing to submit to their overlordship. So they are minded to adopt a scorched earth policy to obliterate Nigeria. They have nothing to lose. They did it in CAR and they will do the same in Nigeria. It will be the responsibility of the indigenous people of Nigeria to find common grounds to protect the land of their ancestral inheritance and prevent the Fulani from putting a knife on their unity and their need to bind themselves together in one nation, but they cannot do this without first containing the Fulani. Fulani will try to divide them.
Buhari and the Fulani oligarchs are counting strongly on deploying the armed forces to quell insurrections that will arise from this massive land grab, but that will be the Achilles heel of their grand plan. Once soldiers are armed to put down these insurrections, they will turn against their commander to defend their communities. Nigerians should, therefore, wait for the great unravelling of their armed forces. Do the Fulani have the firepower to fight? In the entire history of the Nigeria armed forces, the house/Fulani officers and enlisted men have always been promoted far beyond their qualifications and competencies. The capacity to fight and man the different department of modern warfare will be put to the overwhelming test in any assuming encounter. The Fulani never fights an enemy in frontal war. The attack isolated and undefended villages. In any direct confrontation, they run away. It was evident even in the battle of Bangui. Well-armed Fulani soldiers could not take on street gangs with flint guns and machetes. It has also shown in the war against Boko Haram. The performance of commanders of their ethnic stock is a bad joke among soldiers in the front. Hausa/Fulani soldiers had to be sorted out and protected from slaughter by Boko Haram forces. This is not to talk of unending betrayal of Christian colleagues and commanders in the battlefront.
Buhari, a Fulani irredentist, will use to his advantage and for the benefits of his agenda to divide, the ethnic and religious cleavages among the people of Nigeria. But the people ought to know that the Fulani are friends to no one and that a Fulani friend today can become an adversary tomorrow. You are only friend to Fulani for as long as you continue to serve a purpose in their overall plan. Let the talk cease and the battle begins.
