El-Rufai, Sanusi Lamido, Shehu Sani: Aurora Borealis?

From a distance the Northern Nigeria environment shimmers like brown jewel in the darkness of space, the rich and incomparable enclave has been destroyed by it's political leaders! They remain accountable for turning the enclave into a cirque of emptiness.


Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi and Shehu Sanni have and share things in common! The trio are of Hausa-Fulani ethnic stock of Northern Nigeria, they are diminutive, with courage and boldness implanted in them, they dare, they say as it is, no hods barred! With the demise of Western Nigeria's vociferous and anti-corruption crusader, late Chief Gani Fawehinmi, the star has now sifted to the Northern axis of Nigeria and the trio could be described as "Aurora Borealis" The Northern Hemisphere light!


Mallam Nasir El-Rufai's 'Accidental Public Servant' explains former president Olusegun Obasanjo's ill fated third term hidden agenda [still no comment from Obasanjo], Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, [Nigeria CBN governor] exposure of National Assembly overhead cost and the resultant effect on Nigeria's economy [still no comment from the National Assembly], Shehu Sanni's exposure of a colossal revenue the Northern governors had collected and still the region remains backward and poorest [still no comment from the Northern States governors].

Despite some mistakes about Mallam Nasir El-Rufais' handling of restoration of Abuja City master-plan, his tracks remains unique. The ban of commercial motorcyclists from Abuja City center, the unique Abuja Urban Mass Transit, Abuja Geographical Information System [AGIS], and Abuja Environmental Protection Board [AEPB], he indeed tried his best.


Sanusi Lamido Sanusi Nigeria's GBN Governor, a Kano prince and a seasoned economist, Shehu Sanni and Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, the trio remains a beacon of hope and a shinning light [Aurora Borealis] to the Northerners who has wallowed [and still wallowing] in poverty, unemployment, and poor health care facilities.


What I want the duo to address now, is how the Northerners rule of Nigeria for about 35 year and had nothing to show for it! From decay of infrastructure to army of jobless youths, poverty, stagnation, destruction of lives ans properties by Africa's second deadliest Islamic fundamentalists [after al-Shabab of Somalia], the Boko Haram, insecurity, dearth of industries in the zone, rusty country side, polio savagery, lead poisoning. And now the Northerners is insisting of coming back to occupy Nigeria's No 1 seat. The Yoruba's will called it 'Agogo Eewo' 'Gong of Taboo', it must not sounded, never to be heard! Are they coming to clear the alluvium of the deluge of these?


With available data at their disposal, the trio will be able to prove that the crop of Northern rulers caused Nigeria's decay and Northern candidates for 2015 Nigeria president will be a hard nut to sell to Nigerians voters [electorates]. Will unbend-able Gen Buhari step down for Alhaji Sule Lamido?


My ink has run dried!
