As the potentate of the ancient city of Kano, SLS points his accusing finger at the Yorubas for being the troublers of the Nigerian Federation, he must not forget that four fingers are pointing back at himself and his ilk - the caliphate delusionists, and by extension, his own Fulani ethnic nationality that have continued to hold the nation by the jugular since independence. And what is more, under the current Hausa-Fulani Government as led by Muhammadu Buhari, a supra Fulani irredentist like Sanusi himself, the whole of the nation's five fingers are pointing at his nomadic cousins for their bestial tendencies, brutishness and monstrosity!

Sanusi, emir of Kano, Nigeria

The  Yoruba political leadership, as mentioned by Balarabe Musa, has shown itself over the years to be incapable of rising above narrow tribal interests and reciprocating goodwill from other sections of the country by treating other groups with respect. Practically every crisis in Nigeria since independence has its roots in this attitude.


."..the Nigerian Federation is a political union, and not a cultural one, hence in amalgamating, only the political was amalgamated and therafter, federated at independence and not the cultural; and in federating, only the political was federated and not the cultural or the anthropo-socio-cultural and the spiritual."

In other words, they make use of the 'Delaware loophole,' which allows for the legal shifting of earnings from elsewhere in the country to the ultimate tax haven state in the U.S."

Hampshire, UK: A new study from Juniper Research has found that the value of online fraudulent transactions is expected to reach $25.6 billion by 2020, up from $10.7 billion last year. This means that by the end of the decade, $4 in every $1,000 of online payments will be fraudulent.
