I thank God I am not power drunk. If Nigerians like let them not select any northerner to be president for the next 25 years. It will not border me at all.
I don’t have anything against Buhari. But the north needs to come back and face realities of life. The almajiri menace and poverty that are eating deep into the region must be checked collectively.
Just look at the north. So shameful.
My stand is simple and clear. Build an economic power base in the north. We have fertile land for any kind of agricultural activity. Anything you plant in the north will grow with little fertilizer. We can have start up businesses all over the region. We need to see viable SMEs all over the region – employing people and generating revenue for their immediate environments.
Fishing activities at Baga in Borno State can generate billions of naira. I did not even include grains oh. Maize, guinea corn, millet, wheat, rice and so on and so forth. We live on treasures.
But some idiots make oil revenue the main thing. People have become lazy and carried away.
It is not too late. We can revive our commitments for an economic empire and still succeed within the next few years.
