North’s joker for 2015 presidency

101

•Gowon seeks Electoral College as Atiku, Shekarau, others shop for credible candidate

From NOAH EBIJE and ABDULGAFAR ALABELEWE, Kaduna

Prominent Northern leaders, including former Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, 2011 governorship candidate for Kaduna State Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), Bashir Bugaje, and former Governor of Kano State, Ibrahim Shekarau, among others, yesterday brainstormed on how and who the region should produce for the 2015 presidential race.

Speakers at the two-day conference entitled, “The North and strategies for sustainable development,” organized by Arewa House Centre for Historical Documentation and Research of the Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), expressed worry over the dwindling political leadership fortunes of the North. In his address, Gen. Gowon called for introduction of an Electoral College for the presidential election in 2015. He also urged the National Assembly to stop the process for the creation of new states. He said such exercise would increase cost of governance.

“There’s no need for creation of new states, additional states would mean additional cost of governance.” The former Head of State , who was represented by the Chairman of the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF), Alhaji Aliko Mohammed, stressed that the North must come together to forge a common front for the region to enjoy political progress and development. “Unless we come together in the North, we would continue to have problems.

I met with the Senate caucus in the North in Abuja last week and I asked them to reconsider the introduction of Electoral College in choosing the president,” Gowon said. Other Northerners at the conference included former governor of Kebbi State, Senator Adamu Aliero, former Minister of Police Affairs, Alhaji Adamu Maina Waziri, and ex-Minister of FCT, Alhaji Aliyu Modibbo Umar. While Senator Umaru Dahiru represented Senate President David Mark. The host Governor, Patrick Ibrahim Yakowa, in his address said, “the North has been a catalyst for the unity, stability and development of the country.

The country has been relying for direction from the North. This is contrary to what some out there would want the world to believe about the North. History has shown that the unity and strength of the North, with a collective sense of purpose and focus had been the bastion for the unity and strength of Nigeria. We must do everything to sustain this responsibility bestowed on us by providence. “My candid belief is that the outcome of this conference will rather reinforce this fact of history.

As people with responsibilities to our electorates, we are working tirelessly to strengthen the country by building on the solid structures laid by late Nigerian leaders, such as Herbert Macaulay, Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, Sir Ahmadu Bello, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, Sir Michael Okpara and Chief Anthony Enahoro. “They have laid a foundation for us to transform ourselves into visionary leaders. Leaders with positive pictures in their minds all the time.

A leadership that is pre-occupied on changing the economic, political and social landscape of the North and by extension,Nigeria in a proactive way. A leader that insists on the diversification of the economy of the North. A leadership that looks beyond the present heavy reliance on petroleum. A leadership that re-invests the wheels to bring back the groundnut and cotton pyramids of yesteryears in a creative, imaginative and inventive ways.

“The presence of these leadership traits is a step toward having a sustainable development that will create an enabling environment for better services, better infrastructure and education; build on sound moral values and respect to human dignity. We should stop encouraging religious and ethnic intolerance. We should, on the contrary, work hard to transform the mindset of the average Nigerian and guide it into positive channels. Nigeria must be great again. She must start tapping her diverse human and natural resources to the fullest which God has endowed the country with and which we are not adequately taking full advantage of. “May I conclude by posing some pertinent questions, whose answers I expect the conferees to ponder on and provide answers to.

How can we get the North more united? How can we manage our diversity better? How can we cultivate trust and confidence not only between our different ethnicities but also between the government and the governed? How do we create hope for the next generation? “We hereby call upon the conferees to look at these questions seriously but passionately and to come up with an articulated agenda to recreate a new North for a new Nigeria, to the satisfaction of the founding fathers, the present and future generations and to the greater glory of God. We strongly believe these are possibilities,” Gov. Yakowa said.

    • Anthony I Efobi on

      To save the cost of governance more efficiently, the Northern regions should be reduced to 5 States each. All the five States in that North should as well have the same number of Local Govt with Bayelsa, Anambra, Ebonyi, Ekiti States to save cost. This is the kind of thing Gowon should be saying. If not, he is a pure cunny man. A greedy North. Selfish set of creature. Forget it. Stop dreaming. U shall soon stop getting ur over-deserved 19 States and excess Local Govt allocation from anything that comes or emernate from the South.
      We hereby urge Northern Regions to hold a conference and agree on how to reduce their 19 Northern States to 15 state and reduce their Local Govt by 2/3, as a matter of national importance, progress, and development. The National Assembly shall under Doctrine of Necessity path on pursuance to the Northern State and Local Govt reduction to reduce cost of governance as Yakubu Gowon said and advised.

      • I will kill again. on

        Just take a look at the faces of these criminals who cannot even give food to their people but want to rule the entire country with ME included.Thank God the amalgamation of the Southern and northern Nigeria is ending in two years time.They will have to come and removes their beggars,amputees and prostitutes from the South or we will force them out or turn them into our slaves.What a bunch of charlatans.

    • Southern Nigeria, when are you going to have your own meeting? Can you now see that all the northern leaders are more united than you guys. It is a pity we don’t have southern Leader’s forum.

    • London boy are you a sane Nigerian.? Just look at your comment . This oil you are worried about is not even in the Ibo land. If oil is your problem then I can assure you that from 2014 you can come up North and take as much as you like brother.

  2. D problem of My contry Nigeria has gone beyond control, its only spiritual solution can restore nigeria. We ar talking of insecurity in d land, ds people ar busy looking 4 who will became presidend cum 2015, now i can see dat North is nigerias greatest problem. On solid rock BIAFRA i stand. BIAFRA REPUBLIC 20I5, now or never!

  3. NWANKWO HYGINUS on

    NORTHERNERS ARE MAKING MOUNTAINS OUT OF A MOLE HILL OVER THEIR PRESIDENTIAL AMBITION.. DO THEY THINK THAT OTHER TRIBES ARE PUPPETS? THEY SHOULD JUST REFRAIN FROM SUCH AMBITION BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT BORN TO RULE AS THEY THOUGHT. FOR THE DONKEY YEARS THEY HAVE BEEN ON THE MANTLE TAKEN LAWS INTO THEIR HANDS, YET THEY ARE NOT SATURATED. COME RAIN,COME SUN GONE ARE THE DAYS AND IT IS ABSOLUTELY IRREVOCABLE. SOUTHERNERS MUST RULE FOR DONKEY YEARS AS WELL FOR EQUATION TO BALANCE.

  4. ALL THIS TO SHOW YOU THAT THIS PEOPLE ARE VERY STUPID..AND THINK LESS,SO WHAT THEY JUST WANT IS JUST PRESIDENT NOTHING MORE THAN THAT,WELL WE SHALL SEE,…THANK GOD THAT THE WORLD TODAY IS NOT LIKE WORLD YESTERDAY,..WE SHALL SEE THE END

  5. ”…creation of more states will increase the cost of governance”Gowon remarked.Looking at all sides,how true is this statement?

  6. NWANKWO HYGINUS on

    YOU NORTHERN PRESIDENTIAL ASPIRANTS ARE JOKERS .SO YOU DON’T EVEN CONSIDER OUR REPUTABLE GRADUATES HAS THE DEXTERITY TO PERFECT THIS COUNTY? UNCOUNTABLE GRADUATES WITH REPUTABLE AND CREDIBLE VISIONS WILL JUST BE LOOKING AT YOU TO MOUNT ON THE PRESIDENTIAL SADDLE AGAIN? BY MERE LOOKING AT YOUR PRESIDENTIAL AMBITION FACES, WE DON’T NEED TO BE TOLD THAT YOU ALL ARE MENTALLY IMBALANCED .DON’T\T WORRY, HEAVENLY EARTHQUAKE WILL DEVOUR YOU ALL. HOW ARE YOU SURE THAT YOU WILL INHALE THE 2015 FREE GIFT OF NATURE SO CALLED THE COMMON AIR WE BREATH???? YOU ALL ARE DEMONIZED AND MUST FIZZLE AWAY INTO NOTHINGNESS JUST LIKE A DREAM

    • The north only let thier intention known to the public but i c aggresion all over yur face hahhahahahah, former governor uzor kalu has been on ths same campaign with the igbos bt nbdy complain now u publish uour stupidity to d general public. I still dey laugh.

  7. Better stop to deceive una selfs you northern born to rule animals. You can never ever rule Nigeria again. You are all jokers. Our Amalgamation will soon expired. There will be no more country call Nigeria again come by 2014. We must surely part away from you all evil doers. Atiku fagort who said he would make the country ungovernable for Jonathan, now he is nursing tobe president. Mr fagort Atiku you don misroad oooooo. Nigerians dont want a fargort like you as a president. 2014 is when every thing go pafuka and turn up side down. Bunch of fools.

  8. Governor, Patrick Ibrahim Yakowa, stated that “the North has been a catalyst for the unity, stability and development of the country.” He went further that, “The country has been relying for direction from the North.” Nonsense. Direct your region first by good governance. The days of born-to-rule is over. Thanks to OBJ for causing this confusion to you. Posterity will be kind to OBJ for ensuring that the son of the soil that produces the oil become the president of Nigeria.

  9. Hahahahaha, I am luaghing. Nigeria is in a serious tumoil. Why can’t we look for way to restore peace in the land? Many lives are being wasted in ur region daily, u don’t care. A man, whose house is on fire, does not chase/pursue mice.

      • Who cares. They have used up all their cards. Their joker won’t be good enough in Nigerian again. They have to accept the reality and live with it.

      • If the Northerners said that if they don’t rule, BokoHaram will continue. what i will say to them is good luck. they should not forget that he who fetched ant infested firewood should not complain when the person is visited by the lizard. Look at what they have done to themselves, they have destroyed their states. If you throw bomb, does bomb know who is a southerner or northerner. The southerners are leaving for their homes, the northerners have no way to go. They will stay in their states and burn to ashes from the bomb of the suicide bombers brothers who are born to be slaves with no value to their lives. Those who are sponsoring Boko Haram, let them go ahead. I have only one message for them, he who kills with sword must definitely die by the sword. Those who murdered sleep will sleep no more even if drink one million sleeping tablets.

  11. HAHAHAHA, I DEY LAUGH O. ITS TIME FOR YORUBA OR HAUSA TO RULE AGAIN. IGBO SHOULD WAIT FOR ANOTHER TERM IN YEAR 2020 BECAUSE IGBO IS RULING NOW. JONATHAN HAD COMPLETED 4 YEAR AND HIS SECOND TERM WILL END IN 2015. ALL TRIBES HAD RULED NIGERIA AND NOTHING HAS CHANGED OR TRANSFORMED. WE CANNOT BREAK, WE KNOW HOW TO MANAGE OUR CRISIS AND CONFLICT. THE COUNTRY BELONGS TO ALL AND THE RESOURCES BELONGS TO ALL REGARDLESS OF WHERE ITS SITUATED.

  12. Why do you failed to address the insecurity? People like general Shuwa was killed like a rat without any high brow. Are you waiting for your turn before action taken? Boko haram is there for you all.

  13. Can Nigerians score these people,s mentality called northern Nig? Just look at Someone,s house that,s under ablaze, left it and rather continue to chase rates for meal, for good 38 yrs you misruled Nig even without offering education to your wards re all jostling to take over power again in Nig now. Gowon when will u grow up?

  14. CAN YOU SEE THAT THE SYMPATHY FOR NORTHERN CHRISTIANS IS A WASTE WITH PEOPLE LIKE GOWON AND YAKOWA? LET’S HAVE BOKO HARAM NORTH AND SOUTHERN NIGERIA AS TWO AUTONOMOUS NATIONS. THAT WILL END THIS POLITICAL AND MENTAL MUSCLE- FLEXING.

  15. Unfortunatly gowon is still blivin in his euphoria of Biafran fall.thinkin dat nigeria of 2015 is still nigeria of 1967. whil governor of Kaduna yakowa still cant read d hand writin on d wall.even if u are from d north,as long as u ar not muslem,u are regarded as an intruder.wen wil dis northern christian leaders learn comon ABC ?

  18. Gowon and Yekowa should first of all consider themselves as rats in the midst of cats. How can you team up with those who don’t even care what happens to you ? You are being used as willing tools who at the end will be their immediate targets. How many of your northern christain brothers have been killed by your so-called northern elites? Boko haram started during Yar’adua’s regime and the northen christains are their immediate targets even the few southerners who lost their lifes in the episodes were killed by stray bullets that were aimed at your nothern christain brothers whose votes they are seeking to take them to Aso rock. NB: you are representing only yourselves and your family at that meeting.

  19. when we are going up and down telling people the need for us to surport Biafra project sme said we are bunch of jobless people nw cee where we are smbody like Gowon after the systematic killing of Biafran children nw he wnt to block the creation of new state because they knw it wll favore the easterners, I can only blame jonathan for all dis mess because if it to bribe de national assemble for their selfish intraste he wll be fast in doing dat dis time around if the northerns succed in puching u out in 2015 its ure luck because dis time de easterners will not vote for u again, u hve nt dne anything to compare the kind of vote we gave u during the election.

    Nigeria’s Amalgamation Expires In 2014

    The amalgamation of southern and
    northern Nigeria by the British was to be experimented for 100 YEARS to know
    if it’s going to work or not, according to the secret government document the
    British left after independence.
    Although the document is kept secret,
    this fact is generally known to the ruling class, most dons of political
    science and law as well as the government of UK. However, there has been
    consistent efforts by Nigerian government to keep this knowledge out of
    public as it may lead to agitation for breaking the country into two i.e.
    pre-1914 status especially by those in the south.

    The awareness of this document and
    the closeness of 2014 has been causing panic among the Northern elites; this
    panic was behind the recent comment by the senate president that Nigeria will
    not break up.
    It was also behind the warning by NBA
    president when he said in Benin this week that Nigeria may break-up. Even
    pres. Jonathan is nervous about this fact; remember that he kept on saying
    that Nigeria will not break-up. Also, it was the real reason behind the
    northern governors recent security meeting in Kaduna, according to some
    sources.
    All these sudden talks about Nigeria
    breaking or not breaking up by the political leaders including the president
    show how anxious they are about the implications of the document and the
    closeness of almighty 2014. On the international scene, the knowledge of this
    document was behind the prediction by American diplomats that Nigeria will
    break-up in 2015. The US army is also preparing on how to respond to the
    possible break up of Nigeria.

    IMPLICATIONS OF THE DOCUMENT

    1. BY 2014, NIGERIA WILL NO LONGER LEGALLY EXIST
    2. NIGERIA WILL BE BACK TO PRE-1914 STATUS OF TWO STATES OF SOUTHERN NIGERIA
    AND NORTHERN NIGERIA BOTH LEGALLY AND TECHNICALLY, ALTHOUGH THE RULING ELITES
    MAY IGNORE THIS REALITY EXCEPT THERE IS REVOLUTION FROM THE PEOPLE.
    3. PEOPLE OF SOUTHERN AND NORTHER NIGERIA MUST COME TOGETHER TO ENTER A NEW
    AGREEMENT UNDER THEIR OWN TERMS.

    4. JOIN THE REVOLUTION, SHARE THIS ON FACEBOOK.

  22. Just imagine ”…creation of more states will increase the cost of governance”Gowon remarked.BC the south east need more state.Infact I suport GEJ to hold the power untill 2019,before going to the Igbos,then yoruba,
    the hausa’s know the game better than most tribe,so this is their weapon,but things are changing,intelligent men & women frm the south are imagine to fix their evil dids and it will be for good in Jesus name ,Amen

  23. HAHAHAHAHAH ME I DEY LAUGH OOOOH,..WELL EVRY BODY KNOWS THAT NIGERIA ,WILL NOT BE ONE AGAIN,,..BUT ABOVE ALL HAVE ANY BODY SEE WE’RE IN THE WORLD WE THERE IS CIVIL WAR AND PEACE WILL RETUNE IN THAT COUNTRY NEVER …SO THEY BEST WAY FOR NIGERIA TO BE MOVED ON IS TO DIVID

  24. Gowon is a shameless man.u think this ur irational statements will make the Hausa Muslim to see u as one of them…no matter what u do or say,u are a Banza Bokwai and Arne before the Northern Muslims.And in case u forgot Nigeria cannever be united.We d Biafrans will soon go.d North has brought so much pains and backwardness to this useless country…

  25. Funny North! They make spurious claims to being the bastion of Nigeria’s unity. Really, do they believe that themselves? Being pogrom specialists, professional arsonists, psychopathic maimers, etc confer on the North the shining emblem of desert savages. What, in reality ,the North meant by being bastion of unity is their desire to be feared in order for “peace” to reign.

    Gowon is a spent cartridge now. He had no brain as a youth soldier, so his senile brain is confusing him the more. The North must not be allowed to the Aso Rock for several decades to come. In fact the North should show willingness to repair Nigeria by abstaining from its leadership. The North should search for good leaders in the South South, South East or South West and select any from there.

  26. I can see how selfish our christain elites in the north are, i espected them to have out grown this so called one north or is that they dont care to see the systematic extinction of christhains going on daily by muslims right on their nose,HABA GOWON, HABA YAKOWA ,HABA DAVID MARK; You all wake before these fulanis finish us your children, Naka sai naka acording to Atiku; pls wake up before it is late islam agenda have blinded the muslims they will stop at nothing to achieve their interest; so be warned/

  27. I will have thought a learned man like General Yakubu Gowon will forget politic for now and deal with the issue at hand insecurity. Why pursuing 2015 election in 2012, knowing too well that their citizens are suffering, staving, dying.

    You are all wicket old men with outdated brains

  28. The leaders of the north impoverished the north.They were in power for over three decades,mostly military rule where the ruler can do any thing with impunity,good or bad and they succeeded in amassing wealth for themselves,just few years out of power they are blaming others for their backwardness .The fact remains that development of any environment is a function the level of need for achievement among the people,that need for achievement is scarce among northerners.They celeberate mediocrity and dread merit,such cannot deliver on development.The region believes one man can be super rich and feed others as opposed to individual accomplishment emphasized in the south.

  29. Gen Gowon so u dont want more states in the south nigeria right ok 2015 will tells better Gowon u will soon die in jesus name amen

  30. Yakubu Gowon is a FOOL AT 78. Hear him
    “There’s no need for creation of new states, additional states would mean additional cost of governance.”

    all because the south east is the eligible zone state creation.

    Even after all the bloodshed he oversaw in the south eastern Nigeria ,,,,, Yakubu is still an UNREPENTANT FOOL AT 78

  31. Field Marshal Dada on

    yusuff, you are idiot to say ‘we know how to manage our crisis’. You are a BH trainer. 2014, God of the christians would cause this illigal union to cease.IJN

  32. pastor stephen.a.atikongu on

    Northerner nigeria can never never be united, as some group of the seven banza gwokio see themselves as born to rule or their divine rights to rule in nigeria, there is no chance for other minority in the north. I am stunned that folks like gowon, and patrick dangowa in mist of these selfish, insatiable, and greedy men. How can gowon, an patrick reconcile the issue of a tiv man, birom man or the man from southern kaduna state remove as the vice chacellor of A.B.U. zaria, the senseless killing of minorities of the northern state, the discriminating in admission into higher institution in the north. When it pleases this greedy men they talk of one arewa or when they are looking for cheap votes. The time has come for the minorities in the north to be wise, i learn that there is a forum called middle belt or middle belt association where are they.It should be folks like david mark, an senator smart adeyemi that should be talking, not banditoes. These greedy men had rule nigeria for 36 years what had they got to show for, nothing, but misery, poverty, destitute, and diseases. To my own opinion, the ibos should be given a chance to prove their mettle also, no ethic group has the monopoly to rule for ever.

  33. I know the place of respect for the elders, and that I strive to adhere to. But sometimes I am pushed to the wall to make some comments that sound insulting. It is always said that a leopard can never change his color. I wonder why God would allow deceivers to exist in this world who would pretend to be good but inwardly are wolves in the sheep clothe. To heat the nail at the head, I have never liked Gowon, and will never like him because he is the source and genesis of Nigerian trouble till date. He is such a selfish being who assumes himself to be the good father, but rather is the destroyer. Godwon is responsible for the massacre of milions of Nigerians, and boldly he boasted that he would respond to ICC any day that he is summoned without showing any remorse for the wicked act which he committed while he was busy killing Igbos. Here he comes again strategising for how the north would assume power again. He plotted coup and removed Ironsi,, knowing very well that coup would not be possible he is now calling for referendum, and stoppage of creation of more states because he knows that the Igboes his arch enemy are duly qualified for more states. I hate deceivers,craftiness, and insensitivity from any person.Please , oga Gowon quietly retire and stop creating more troubles. Every thing in life has time. The earlier you have this understanding the better for you.Bye.Mr. Jack.

  34. SHAY, my brother to correct you Gowon is never learned. When he seized power from Ironsi,he was a stack illiterate that only went to secondary school. That was the reason he could not interpret simple written word and agreement made by the late Dim Odumegwu Ojukwu.It was only the late oppressor of the last order that interpreted the agreement for him when he returned from Aburi in Ghana. He was never learned, if at all he went to school that would be only night school.

  35. Stupid Hausa/Fulani. Born to rule muslem. Among those warming up for the presidential race, tell me who is a non-muslem? Any time north is mention, these stupid muslem will hi-jack it. North is not one, and can never be one again.

  36. THE WORST SIGNAL TO SHOW THAT NIGERIA AS A NATION IS HEADING NO WHERE HAS ALREADY MANIFESTED ITSELF BY GEN. GOWON CO-JOINING IN CHAMPIONING THE RETURN OF POWER TO NORTH. INDEED, NIGERIA HAS LOST DIRECTION.

  37. It is very untortunate that arewa can even think of coming together to find a candidate that will contest 2015 presidential ellection. I can tell ufools it will never happen. Even GEJ refuse to contest u will still not rule this country until all other tribes has ruled. By that i mean, de middle belt, de igbo, uhrobo, de itserkiri , de okeneand all other smaller tribes that made this country had have their turn. Afterall, for all de time ur core north ruled this country, what can u point to that we can call ur legacy,nothing , ho i forgot what about poverty in de core north , ur destitute, ur young people lack of education n of no rellevant skills to advance themselves in any reasonable society. Instead of core north to move their people forward, what u’were able to do it to draw them backward n u still think u magot will still be allowed to make live more miserable. Never again n i mean never again. Any time u want to use de middle belt for ur selfish gain that is when u will remember that north is one but this time it won’t work cos de middle belters has seen through u core norh. Tha’ve come to realised that nothing good will come out of core north. U know one joker, if this country is divided today, middle belt will never follow core north. They will prefer to follow de south cos that is where their intrest will be better served. How can u honouestly think they will follow u after all u did to them , by retarding their development n by killing them . Even if u already forgotten all these do u think they will hurrdly forget ur BOKO HARAM. This ur BOKO HARAM will by de special garce of almighty Allah shall be ur “waterloo”. Haven’t thought about ur ambition to rule this country come 2015, i asked myself who we u present?, n i can not realy name any credible candidate of urs from urt core north region. U’re just wasting ur time. Remember one fact, malasia, singahpore n Nigeria got their independent almost de same time, look at where those two countries are today n look at where u core north led Nigeria to. Have u no shame at all?, “Core North” had de opportunity to have taken this country to de heighest level on since before in de history of black race but cos of ur greed,selfish n ur parochail in thinking u messed up de opportunity. U once had de chance to have ur name 9ore ,orth written in Gold but u choosed “MUD”. As they say, opportunity missed is missed for ever. How i whish ur poor people whose lives u’ve mortgaged should rise up against ur so call leaders n ur elits in a move i hope they wipe u up. I don’t really think Allah will mind that happening to u core north’s leaders. U should keep ur mouth shut now n allow better Nigerians to take this country to de best level.

  38. Gowon is a fool by saying that nigeria do not need more states that it will increase the cost of govananc,why shudnt he as well say they need to cut down 19 state in the north to reduce the cost of govanance, thank God that very soon he(gowon)wil join his ansestors, north have deceived the south enogh, this time around that their born to rule mentality wil not work again, gworo teeth ppl.

    • Nduka Felix mobolaji on

      Nigerians should not be surprised at the position of the north, concerning 2015, cus hausas can’t do without power. An average hausa man belives he alone has the right to rule nigeria. I dont know if they are not done with the harm they have caused nigeria yet.

  39. Gowon started state creation,but today he is criticising it.This is unpatrotism,he did it because he wanted to win a war against the Igbos.I expect Gowon to canvass for regional government,he should stop talking against creation of more states because he introduced it.
    If the North insist that the country will not go back to regional structure,then creation of more states must continue until every ward in Nigeria becomes a state.

  40. Please General Gowon have been trying to keep Nigeria One. You have not relented after over 40 years. Allow for the creation of more states or let us revert to 12 states we had after the regional governments were faced out.

  41. Look at the caliber and quality of those aspiring to govern Ghana and compare it with our own,how can a man like General Gowon still be seeking relevance in the scheme of things of Nigeria,based on what criteria will votes be allocated for electoral colleges,is it based on the fraudlent population figure of the northern Nigeria which X3 of the actual? I have no problem with electoral college votes but we also have to get accurate population of Nigeria through the issuance of national id cards and social security number including a finger print data base. Look at even the PDP still parading men like Tony Anenih and Bamangar Tukur,are these the people that will develop Nigeria? I weep for my country

  42. Wild-Wild West on

    We are waiting for the northern CAN to take a position for the northern Christians, Gowon “is own his own” at the moment. The northern Christians have suffered enough humiliation, illumination, intimidation by the so-called one north, once beating,twice shy.

    No northern Christian can ever be deceived again, by one north, the era has since gone.

  43. In my secondary school days I read a novel where a man was referred to as a butterfly that calls himself a bird. I think General Gowon and Gov. Yakowa are just perfect match for that literary character. Otherwise why should they always be championing the course of people who are out to destroy and delete their race from existence. The Hausa-Fulani oligarchy have done everything to wipeout Jos and by extension Plateau from existence, yet Gowon does not see the handwriting on the wall. What about southern Zaria? The story is same as Jos. May be Gowon is suffering from the effects of the pogrom he carried against Biafra. Or how do you reconcile this, the core north called you Banza bouque. For work they remember the orphan. At election, it is one North, Namu Namu and after that, Aruna kowe. The man the gods want to kill, they first make mad. Instead of finding solution to the pogrom going on in your state you are going about trying to empower your enemy. The gods have really made you mad.

  44. shameless people,why can’t you settle the issue of boko harm before you talk of northern president. irresponsible people.God will judge you people.

  45. All i know is that Igbo people are not going to rule this country again and for all those stupid southerner who called them selves christian should know that upon all the christian leaders that lead this country since militry regim till this time no one perform like any northern leaders, and if there is any pls I seek for objection! Secondly, I was thinking that thoes southerners will look for immidiate actualisation of northern Samaritan as president since this drunken fisher man as failed them. And my answernable question is here, pls who can give me a small comparison between this Ijaw man and Late. Musa Yar’adua government? Answer your selves you fool!

    • Which Yaradua? The chain smoker, and the drunk who destroyed his vital organs by debachuary? Which one? Your religion encourageto lie, to cheat and to deceive the ‘infidel’ , now your are incapable of even recognizing a dead man when you see one.
      We are all worried about the christian leaders in the North who for some reason do not recognize their enemies, not about men like you who serve the one known as the father of lies. The devil have had his day in Nigeria, and his lies are over. Those who will cling to him will perish with him, soon.

  46. Dear Gowon,
    I read from your address as presented in the communique on your region’s plans for 2015 Presidency.
    It’s unfortunate that you are still talking like an ancient APE. Little wonder why you plunged the Biafrans into war because of your FOOLISHNESS.
    You talked about non creation of state from the South-East because you are advocating an ELECTORAL COLLEGE where you assuming that if it comes into play, your Region will dictate the pace of the election. See how foolish you could think. Why wouldn’t you suggest that some states and LOCAL GOVT AREAS in the NORTH should be merged to tame them down and as well reduce the COST of Governance. Many a state in your Region are as POOR as CHURCH-RAT. Take a look at ZAMFARA, JIGAWA, BAUCHI, BORNO, TARABA, KEBI and SOKOTO States, what has these states has to contribute to our National Development? NOTHING! They all just depends on the Southern Region Resources for their well-being.
    The North has more states without anything to show for it. While the South that has the largest contribution to Nigeria are disadvantaged and trampled upon from day to day.
    The North should keep quiet when people from the South are talking and they should learn to listen to the South in decisions because the South holds the LIVE existence to everybody in today’s Nigeria.

    • Uyome.Dd evr go 2 d 4angle structr in lifr.D u knw d ful meaning of Democratic sys of govt.Pls dont hind in south n thickng ur ar a nigerian.

  48. What a brilliant idea by Gowon . the north should as a matter of urgency be reduced to 15 states for equity and to reduce the cost of governance. Old-man who wan to sacrifice his people on the alter of political relevance

    • @Daggash: Can you read what you wrote for the nation to read. Like your leaders from the North, you are a hollow with a shallow mind. The leadership your people provided since their military tour in the country is responsible for the woes of the nation

  49. Southern Nigeria, when are you going to have your own meeting? Can you now see that all the northern leaders are more united than you guys. It is a pity we don’t have southern Leader’s forum.

  53. Engr. Olatunji Samuel on

    Forget it. North can never produce the President in 2015. Jonathan must use second term. After that, the Igbos must use 2 terms. The North should forget Presidency for the next 15 years. It is not their turn anywhere. They have ruled Nigeria for so many years at the expense of other regions without glaring resources coming from the far North. Middle Belt should make a different identity from the far North. The far North can never intimidate Jonathan with Boko Haram.

  55. taiwo oladipupo on

    bunch of cont, trying to cajoe people to vote for them. after many years of destroying the nations thats full of milk and honey. years of depriving the people of their right to the resources, years of squendering the nations wealth to fund their larvish lifestyle and to send their useless offsprings to school abroad while others are suffering at home.these political figures of the north should understand that nigeria is not under deveolp like in the sixtys, we are moving forward and yet these bunch of daft ! still believe that there is something they could do that can lead masses to bring them into power after what they have done to leave nigerians in darkness up to date.
    cant you think? in nigeria today, hardly would anyone living in masses area enjoyed electricity for an hour or two a day, yet you have to pay for what has not been used.in england or america or any other european countries, its pay as you go without any national exploitation like the country of nigeria where the nothereners has put into places a systems to morgage and exploit the citizen. its about time that nigerian should stand up and pray that confusion should continue erupt in their camp and wherever they have gathered to discuss any issue that will bring them back into power.

  56. No strategy, i repeat no amount of strategy or political permutation will give the North the presidency of Nigeria in 2015 even if the incumbent president GEJ declines to recontest. If peradventure Mr president refused to recontest then the South East must be allowed to have a shut at the presidency. There is no two ways about this postulation. There is no alternative in 2015 except president Jonathan or Igbo presidency. I have spoken.

  57. hahahahaha…..i’m just short of words 4 dis so called North dat neva believe in d existence of any other tribe if not their’s! No single northerner can eva be happy seeing a person even d best of candidate emerge from d south i.e igbo. I tink nigeria should cease to exist. And leave dis mere economic parasites to their fate. Beggarz, amputees, almajiri’s and dan gurugurus!

  58. The End Of The Beginning
    Now that the North has flown the kite, and muted their desire to have power back in 2015, we now know their mindset as far as political leadership in Nigeria is concerned. No problem with that, afterall it is a democracy.

    The problem is with the unresolved issues, what I call Nigeria’s unfinished business, or better still, unfinished businesses. Briefly, the main onces are:
    The Terms Of The Amalgamation of 1914
    The superstructure
    The political substructure
    The governance gridlock
    The state of the nation

    The Amalgation of 1914
    Legend has it when Lord Lugard decided to amalgamate Southern and Northern Nigeria Protectorates he was at a loss what to call the new nation. So one day in a party, after having one shot too many of old vintage British Johnny Walker whisky, he leaned to his girl friend, for a name for the new nation. The girl giggled and came up with Niger-Area. After a little tinkering, this became Nigeria of today.
    In sober mood when Lord Lugard was reporting his proposition to the British monarchy, this is how he described his novelty idea (paraphrased by me) “I have found a southern lady of means (Southern Protectorate) whom I intend to marry off to a charming horse riding prince from the north (Northern Protectorate).
    This union will be such that the north will be the husband and the south will be the lady” Then he went on to outline the workplan for the amalgamation.
    So, from the outset the north was intended to have the upper hand in this union, and were accordingly groomed by the British. This coincidentally agrees with their dominant religion of Islam, where ‘non believers’ are not meant to rule the ‘believers’, if it were humanly possible.

    In the institution of marriage, stats have shown that marriages of convenience or forced marriages always end in a divorce. In the rare instances, where one of the couples decides to stay by enduring, it is usually either because of the children (if any) or because of fear of being maimed or killed in the event of separation.

    Now the amalgamation of Nigeria is both a marriage of convenience and a forced marriaged. Events, in the life of the country have proved this. During the struggle for independence, the north was unwilling for the independence, claiming underdevelopment, and fearing southern domination. The southern leaders then allayed their fears, and independence was given. At the slightest hiccup of the new republic in the Sixties, the north was quick to point to the mistake of the amalgamation and of independence, that would apparently marginalize them then.
    When the hiccups became full blown, and one thing led to another, and the north through its military gained governance of the nation, their first action-plan was to pull out of the union. Again, the British stepped in and allayed their fears, by assuring them, “now you have got it all, why pull out?”

    Then the civil war followed, and gave birth to three decades of misrule. The cause of the of the civil war was the secession bid by then Eastern Nigeria, championed by the Igbos. Let me state here that both northern and southern actors played various roles in this phase of the nation’s political life. The thing of note here is that it is the Igbos who wanted to pull out this time around.
    During the three decades of misrule, the southe-south minorities begain their own agitation for separation.
    During this period, the south-west briefly muted possible pull out following events of 1993 and the annulment of the presidential election won by MKO of blessed memory.

    I have gone to this great lenght to demonstrate that this forced amalgation of convenience is one in which on love is lost between the various ethnic nationalities. It is the main factor in Nigeria’s myriad problems today. It is an unfinished business.

    Recently, it being circulated, that there is a clause in the amalgamation instrument, which states that it is subject to review in a hundred years time. Well, if such document exists, it is good news. In 2014, it will be a hundred years of the amalgamation. Let us find this document, study it and work on it, not necessary to separate, but keeping the various options open, to work on an equal, consensual basis, to redifine our union. Disintegration should be the last option, and should be concesual too, if it comes to that.

  59. Is there any clause in the amalgamation document that said or implied that Nigerians can discuss or opt to undo the amalgamation ? Can someone look into this. I am going to look into it myself and share my findings. Someone alluded to this in one of the responses above.

  60. Poor Gowon,don’t mind the insults ok! U know it’s not ur fault abi? It’s b/c of ur illiterate,maggot infested brain that made think like a cow. Anu ofia.

  61. @ isah iam surpise at ur comment dat an igbo man can neva rule Nigeria. What a stupid talk. Anyway dats d best a cattle rearer like u can say. Dont forget dat a mad person from d igbo race is much wiser dan d whole emirs in d north daft. As for Gowon let him continue rely on his 1967 evil promince to deliver an address of whom to rule and how not to creat more states for d south.God of vengance will visit all of them

  62. We are looking for Boko Harram from a far, while we have them with us. Gowan and Atiku are the head of boko harrams. Gowan said that Nigeria should not go for additional states. Because he knows the after effect, which means that winning elections will be very difficult for the north if we have equal states and local government. It is a must, if Nigeria will continue its existance we must have equal states in Nigeria.

  63. Please let us call. Tinibu. Tony aninie. Oshemole. Obasanjo. Udueagha. Okorocha.rotimi amaechi.etc. Pls help me to remember them that we southern nigeria also need our own meeting.

AFTER YOUR PASS FUCK UP .THIS IS THE BEST OPPORTUNITY IF YOU LOVE YOUR HELPLES BROTHER AND SISTERS OVER THERE IN NORTH, USE THIS OPPORTUNITY OF ONE NIGERIA TO FIGHT FOR MORE STATES IN NORTH TO SEPARATE YOUR PEOPLE FROM THEM BECAUSE EVEN IF YOU THINK YOU ARE FREE OR SAVE FROM THEY JIHAD WHAT OF YOUR CHILDREN AND YOR GRAND CHILDRENS. GOWON NEVER BE COUNTED AMONG THOSE WHO ARE FOOL AT FOURTY. NORTHNERS NORTH SUDAN AND EGYPT SHOULD SIMPLE EXAMPLE, WHAT ARE ARABS WORLD DOING TO HELP THOSE COUNTRIES AFTER HELPED THEM TO DESTROY WHAT THEY HAVE. ARABS HATE BLACK AND AFRICA.

  67. South to north formular is still there.north to south das wht agree since.2014 is another milesstone to nation.Great we are made..Great we are going.Unty we are n div we refu…..

  68. Ha! Ha!! Ha!!! Gen. Gowon hasn’t accomplish his mission to delete all Ibos but he have finished their Lord Ojukwu and using his skull drinking Burukutu in Jos. And very soon he will finish the rest of them.

  69. “Wise” old men are expected to read the “hand-writing on the wall” to know when their imagined relevance expired. Where were these people when Nigeria went down? All of them pulled Nigeria down after the old politicians they named with their mouth left the seen; and am sure that it was not for the good of the northerners but themselves. While their children were trained overseas, they encouraged the rest of the north to send theirs to learn begging and reject education.
    I am disappointed in Gowon if he actually realised today that one more state to the South-East will pull Nigeria down. If he has not ended the war, he should better come out openly and declear his position. War/s is part of living and the living will always do with it.

  70. Iam calling my dear bro 4rm south presizely Igbo u are proud of christianity and i dnt see the teaching of jesus 4rm u bcos u dnt know any tin acept Insult and morliying those who have diff faith wiz u in most of ur comment i follow u better master ur scripture. Delta,Bayalsa,Ebonyi and Imo State etc WHO CREaTE them? The two major refinere u aways proud up WHO build them? Obj or Gej?

  71. truth is bitter on

    if you talk about a self fish Nigerian pls talk about GOWON if you can go back to GOWON’s administration you will notice that every thing he did was to favor him and his family .i quote the increment on the nurses salary was due to his wife was a nurse,if his his wife was a teacher he will also increase it.NYSC is due to he wanted to go back to school to have an age over his oppositions in the politic i never thought that gowon and his friend will ever talk about coming to ASO ROCK again he is an old fool if i were the BOKO i will HARAM him.

  72. WHAT HAS THE NORTH DONE FOR THEIR OWN?
    ALL THE YEARS IN POWER WHAT HAVE THEY ACHIVE? THIS IS THE QUESTION, B4 U PIC PRESIDENT.

  73. i hate anything called hausas with passion and i am ready to kill any one of them any day any time and i know that God will never judge me for that…these set of fools are animals in a human forms…none of the northern leaders can reason well and that was why they were unable to train there children afyer milking Nigerians for all these dunkey years..just go to northern Nigeria my broda you can’t believe that this are people who has been in power for all these long and there northern youths who are all brainwashed are still there supporting them can you imagine…i said shame,shame,and shame to all northerners and God will never forgive you for what you did to your people and Nigerians in general.

  74. IGBO SHOULD FORGET ABOUT 2015. ITS BETWEEN YORUBA AND HAUSA. YOUR NEXT WILL 2020 WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OT NOT. ALL TRIBES DESTROYED THE NATION. IGBO HAS 2YEAR MORE.

  75. politics is all about hijacking power and being in government. Nothing stops other ethnic groups from doing what AREWA has done. Think of how to get power as PDP,ACN, PPA,et al struggle to get it.

  76. Do Northern leaders have a joker or are they jokers? For 40 years they fed fat on the national patrimony which they did not allow to go round their people. Now, they are strategising on how to capture power come 2015. They must be jokers.
    Gowon, thank you very much for advising against creation of new states in Igboland, which is the only are amarginalised in the state creation. By the way, how relevant is Gowon in today’s Nigeria.
    Northern leaders are advised to withdraw the Boko Haram boys which they unleashed on Nigeria. In no distant time, they will be haunted by it.

  77. The Southern political leaders should also form strong regional body that will be tackling the Northern Forum propaganda. The kaduna Governor fumbled when he said the North sets the pace for Southerners to follow. He should be told that the North are PARASITES on the Southern resources, so he must retract those unfounded statements he made in his address to the so called northern leaders.
    The Northern Christians should look for better identities as Northerners in the present circumstances when the Hausa/Fulani Muslims (BOKO HARAM) have declared war on them as INFIDELS instead of castigating the southern people that continue to stand by you in this horrible situation you find your people.
    Gowon should be respected for his old age but he was not honest when he said there should no states creation again in Nigeria after he introduced it during his reign as head of state, I support states creation on conditions of viability of the proposed states and justice, equity in the Regions of the country, for example, Ogun State is the only State in Nigeria where two former provinces, that is Abeokuta province and Ijebu province still remain in one State while other former Provinces have been divided into two or three States especially in the Northern Nigeria. Atiku is not fit and can never be a president of Nigeria.
    The North or Hausa/Fulani should wait until next 60years before they would agitate for Nigerian presidency again.
