There’s a day @jacksonpbn posted a video of sir Ahmadu Bello . I wanted to save that video but forgot about it. Now I need that video and can’t seem to find it. But if you can , find it and watch it because it will show you something about why this #RugaSettlements should worry u
Notice that everytime there’s a planned nothernization policy on ground , the first places that takes the hit is #benuestate ? Do you know why ? Because the followers of Ahmadu Bello ideology of conquering the north are still around .
Remember that Ahmadu Bello was the first person that was able to sell the idea of a unification of the diverse people of the north. Then he was premier of the north. He deliberately delayed the independence because he wanted to be sure the north could survive if the British left
It was in this bid that he managed to hoodwink the north and brought them under one umbrella and then he started off his northernization policies. Replacing southern civil servants with northern ones and sending northern boys to the army without requisite requirements
This continued till after independence and then a group of people from the Benue banks refused and decided to push back led by J S Tarka with his United middle belt congress (umbc) . They revolted against the sokoto caliphate dominance.
Then Ahmadu Bello sent in the police and army to fight and suppress the tivs then in that war . Some accounts from the Hausa people say the tivs suffered a great loss while another account says they pushed back the Govt forces and liberated themselves. Don’t know which is true
A certain politician of repute also kanuri says this about Ahmadu Bello .”He was a feudalist and always believed that the north should dominate. He always took lands belonging to people perhaps because he’s from Uthman dan fodio bloodline”
“Ahmadu Bello Yes loves his people but he took it too far and in a way I’d say he caused his own death”

This gives you an idea into why everytime , the feudal north which @MBuhari represents is always trying to take Benue State and it’s lands from the people .
Question is; what is in Benue that @MBuhari and his feudal brothers want the most ? Surely nothing progressive but just to dominate an own an entire region. No wonder someone warned @UchebobAgala yesterday that ndi Igbo should stay away from #rugasettlement talks.
At first I didn’t think much of the statement by the tweep but the warning he gave to @UchebobAgala telling him expressly that they just want Benue lands and not Igbo lands kept resonating in my sleep.

Na wa oh! Fulani agenda is indeed real
