The Hausas are a mixed breed. They a fantastic tribe in Nigeria. They are the only tribe that builds a business near the core needs of people no matter how demeaning. But their problem is naivety.

Naivety breeds confusion and confused people can be desperate and desperate people are the most dangerous. In their desperation is a panic to rule, in that panic, they become the most willing tool in the hands of detractors who wishes to perpetrate evil. This tribe with their leaders need to come publicly to apologise for the destruction they caused. They are like the child who cried to bath and begins to cry of cold.

The Igbos are the most industrious tribe in this country. One of the rarest things on earth is to see an Igboman turn a beggar. But they are the most hateful of the tribes.

An Igboman does not even hate the Hausas, they despise them. And most of their failings in the past is their underestimation of this tribe. But they hate the Yorubas. This hatred is legendary. No matter the years of benefit from the West. They remain bitter.

Also, the problem of this tribe is hubris which Achebe recognised. The feeling of wanton pride and ‘I’m better than the others’ syndrome. Just as they seem to force their patriarchal adventure to the Jews. They are the most tribalistic of the trio.

The Yorubas are the wisest of the bunch. They will do everything to prevent war and conflict. Truth be told, they are the reason why Nigeria is still one.

Leave the Hausas with the Igbos for this past 100years, Sudan would have been better. But no tribe has injured this nation like the Yorubas with all the assaults of North and South combined. They are a greedy bunch of people already licking their lips when the Igbos said they were leaving, counting the businesses they will inherit.

They no longer bring much to the national table. Tell me what product are they bringing to the centre? Even Yam is now from the North, and a fallacy now to say North is the laziest tribe. They are the most deceptive and deceitful. They smile at you while scheming evil behind you. Show me a company filled with them wahala Don sele. Awolowo will wreak more havoc than the whole of Gowon and Ojukwu combined during the Civil war. They understand the art of war, they are patient but equally dangerous.

This is my opinion.

My point is that no tribe can point an accusing finger.
We can also not break up without going ‘through some pain’. If we do, the battle will rage for a minimum of ten years.
Like a marriage to an ugly woman with no option of divorce. Just find a way of falling in love.
