In today’s Nigeria politics, there seems to be a romance between the Fulani and the Yoruba nations. This, some have referred to as “Game of Trust.” The different, yet, agreeable traits of the Fulani and the Yoruba make their bond seamless. We will look at it all piece by piece.
Recently, the hash-tag “Hole in the Neck” has been trending in social media. This is in connection with the death and replacement of Nigerian president by an impostor. The mainstream media in Nigeria, controlled by the Yoruba, has ignored it even with all evidence at their disposal. This is done on the calculation of the Yoruba producing the next president of the country, having been tipped by their Fulani masters. Exposing the fraud in Aso-Rock, they suppose, would jeopardize their chances.
Currently, the Fulani is faced with the enormous task of controlling every part of the country. Will the Game of Trust, therefore, yield good results for the Yoruba? Of course, a people can decide to break their promise when the situations are not favourable.
Asides the numerous proclamations and actions of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) geared towards achieving the Fulani longstanding dream of conquering Nigeria, notable individual figures of Fulani extraction have made utterances that lend credence to the Fulanization agenda of the Caliphate.
In 2014, a Fulani man named Aliyu Gwarzo threatened that the Fulani will kill and maim any part of Nigeria that resists them, adding that the Mujaheddin are ever ready, and by Allah, they shall win. With the assumption of power by Muhammadu Buhari, it will be difficult for any other tribe to smell the seat again.
Since the 1950s, the Fulani and their protégés have almost consistently held dominant positions in Nigerian affairs – from Ahmadu Bello to Tafawa Balewa, Murtala Mohammed, Shehu Shagari, Muhammadu Buhari, Ibrahim Babangida, Sani Abacha, Umaru Musa Yar’Adua and now Buhari again. All these historical facts are being seen as God’s hand at work in Nigeria for the Fulani nation. The large numbers of Fulani herdsmen are also seen as a God-provided tool for the Fulani agenda.
In the religious arena, the Fulani being Muslims have the religious backup to break promises anytime. I am talking about the doctrine of Taqiya. In Islam, Taqiya or Taqiyya is permissible in situations where there is an overwhelming danger of loss of life or property and where no danger to religion would occur. It permits one to lie in favour of Sharia. Taqiyya has also been politically legitimised. “Taqiyya is an Islamic juridical term which shifting meaning relates to when a Muslim is allowed, under Sharia law, to lie.
History is awash with Yoruba leaders fooled by the Fulani. Afonja, Chief Samuel Ladoke Akintola, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, Chief Remi Fani- Kayode, Chief MKO Abiola, Chief Bola Ige and former President Olusegun Obasanjo are some of the Yorubas that have been fooled by the Fulani in the past. They aligned with Fulani leaders in the past and paid the price. The question, therefore, is no longer whether the Fulani will keep their promise to the Yoruba nation; rather, have they ever kept their promise to the Yorubas?
Now, returning to the different and yet agreeable traits that make their bond seamless, the Fulani are people with an overwhelming sense of conquest. Their ideology is masterful. They want to be the lord of any society they found themselves. On the other hand, the Yoruba are cowardice and subservient. This nature of theirs makes it easy for the Fulani to conquer and control them with ease. It is this trait of the Yorubas that has turned Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, a professor of law, into a houseboy at Aso Rock where even the shoe-shiner of late Abba Kyari bosses him around.
