    “Northern Nigeria must also appreciate the fact that the
    return of government to the North in whatever shape or form is not going to
    solve our problem as northerners. It will not be the solution to the problem.
    It’s daybreak because the reality of the situation is obvious. This is where i
    feel quite disappointed by some of the utterances i have heard. I heard
    somebody like Alhaji Adamu Ciroma saying the problem now is that: ‘we need a
    Danfodiyo to come’. The whole notion that somehow, by some dysfunctional
    philosophy, we can still line up and say: ‘it is our turn to govern Nigeria’,
    but that is not the way the rest of the world is going.”

      Timothy:

      It is true. This is not just about zoning power to the north. This is an Islamic Jihad. This is the greatest threat, not just to northern Nigeria – once Kano and Kaduna are overwhelmed – but an existential threat to Nigerian Christians who will be killed en masse, since they will not accept to convert to Islam. It is time the Christian pastors and bishops act with political sense. This is genocide. Christians are the ultimate targets of an Islamic revolution. The Muslims being killed in bombing episodes are mere collateral damage. Islamic political parties pour petrol in this fire. Islamic political parties must be rejected as first line of defence. By necessity a defensive militia must be considered to protect Christian communities in northern Nigeria and in Yorubaland, where Christians are more vulnerable. Prevention is better than cure.
