North has ruled Nigeria for 47 years but it is the Poorest region- Truth to Arewa

A tweep, Ismaila Yusuf has given reasons why he is voting Peter Obi in next year’s polls.

In a Twitter thread, Yusuf said the North has ruled Nigeria for 47 years out of 62 but it remains the poorest region in Nigeria.

“My fellow Arewa am here to deliver a simply message.
Nigeria independence – 1960
Nigeria as independent country- 62years.

“Alhaji Abubakar Tafawa Belewa- 1960-1966 (6 yrs)
General Yakubu Gowon- 1966-1975 (9yrs)
General Murtala Muhammed (7mths)Alhaji Shehu Shagari – 1979-1983 (4yrs)
Major General Muhammadu Buhari 1983-1985 (2yrs)
General Ibrahim Babangida 1985-1993 (8yrs)
General Sani Abacha 1993-1998 (5yrs)
President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua 2007-2010(3yrs)
President Muhammadu Buhari 2015-2023 (8yrs)Total Northern rule – 6+9+4+2+8+5+5+8 = 47yrs.”

“Northern rule 47yrs out of 62yrs as an independent country. Highest out of school children – North
Highest poverty – North
Highest insurgency – North
Highest mother death at childbirth – North
Highest children death – NorthNigeria civil war was fought in the SouthEast for 3 years!”

“Yet they rebuild their region and today poverty is the lowest, literacy is the highest, mother death at childbirth is the lowest. But our Arewa leaders will keep telling us Igbo man is our problem.

“2023 my vote belongs to Peter Obi of Anambra state. If you like vote Atiku because he is your fellow Arewa or Tinubu because he is your fellow Muslim. All of us will learn our lesson eventually.
