OPINION: Sanusi Lamido and Northern scheme



Spread the love

To all the Southerners expressing their opinions for or against Sanusi, I say: Take it easy. Let us siddon, buy popcorn and coke and be watching this Movie. There might be more to this than meets the eye. Whether this crisis is real or not, one thing I know about the North is that they never lose sight of their true goal or do anything to sabotage it: Total domination of Nigeria is their only ambition.

When it comes to that, they stand together and they plan far ahead.

Under Obasanjo, with Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala as Finance Minister, and Soludo as CBN Governor, Southern Banks became very powerful, financing infrastructural and economic growth not only in Southern Nigeria but even in other African countries. Nigeria was on the way to becoming a true financial and economic powerhouse FOR the Black World. Southern Banks were a threat to Foreign Capital (West, Middle East and Far East) and also a threat to Northern hegemonic plans.

When Sanusi was made CBN Governor under Yar’Adua, the first thing he did was to target Southern Banks and begin to weaken them one after the other under the guise of fighting corruption. At the same time he reopened the door for Foreign as well as Islamic financial capital. He effectively conducted an Economic Jihad that halted the advance of the South and put the North back in a favourable strategic position.

Now 2023 is coming –
The North has realised one thing: NIGERIA IS RIPE FOR CHANGE! The Northern strategists would prefer that the modernising of Nigeria take place under a Northerner than under a Southerner. So they have to present a viable Northern candidate for that.
This is where Sanusi comes into the picture.

If you study Sanusi’s actions, you will see that he is deeply pro-North and anti-South in a very intelligent progressive way. Sanusi understands what it takes to make the North overtake and dominate the South IN EVERY WAY in a modern world.
But when you hear him talking you will think he is a detribalised pan-nigerian government critic, which is why so many Southerners foolishly support him.

The North understand that Sanusi would be more valuable to them as the President of Nigeria than as the Emir of Kano. He would not only help the North to overtake the South systemically and on all possible levels. He would also modernise Nigeria, so that the credit for the modernisation of Nigeria will go to a Northerner.
The Northern future-planners would rather have Sanusi in a position to become the President of Nigeria.

Exactly, what I think. Any southerner that does not see this wicked Islamic jihadist being repositioned is dreaming. Sanusi destroyed southern banks, drove away their CEOs and jailed some.

Akingbola built Intercontinental Bank from scratch and the bank was taken from him while he ran for his life. The story has it that Saraki wanted Akingbola to buy Societe Generale Bank which he looted into coma and he refused. Saraki then approached Sanusi who was his classmate at Kings College to use his position as The CBN Governor to destroy Intercontinental Bank. He looked for a reason to do the job.

That was how Sanusi came up with his hoax audit report he used to destroy Southern banks. Those banks were not in distress at all. Access Bank was dying under the management of Sanusi’s friend. Intercontinental Bank was handed over to him for survival. Access Bank used Intercontinental Bank money to buy Intercontinental. Cecilia Ibru who built Oceanic Bank was dispossessed and jailed.

You may not have heard that Tony Elumelu refused to employ Sanusi at UBA before First Bank employed him. He rose in First Bank to MD because of the FGN controlling share. From there he became the CBN Governor. He didn’t forget or forgive Tony. That was why he came up with the 7yrs term for Bank CEOs to get back at Tony. We have a wicked Islamic jihadist being let lose.

Sanusi introduced the law that Bank CEOs cannot stay beyond 7yrs. If they can’t run their business for more than 7yrs, why are people like Dangote running theirs beyond 7yrs. He destroyed Southern banks and introduced Islamic banking. Where in the world do you run a business without making profit or charging interest? Buhari is borrowing from the international finance community and will pay interest but will use Southern resources to run an interest free bank. The South must wake up before it’s too late.

The North hates The South in everything but Southern leaders are blind and not thinking. The North is out to frustrate and slow down The South by all means. Sanusi is and intelligent man but an economic Boko Haram against The South. The same way Buhari canceled the Lagos State metroline to slow down development was how Sanusi used his powers at The CBN to destroy Southern economy. He is still coming. Only splitting the country will save The South. The North have been marketing Sanusi with his eloquent speeches but with a sinister agenda.

24hrs after his dramatic dethronement, El Rufai his fellow jihadist has offered him The VP of Kaduna State investment project. The South are thoughtless in many ramifications. The same educated man who beheaded Akaluka also beheaded Southern economy when he had the opportunity. The North sees him as their hatchet man. They are coming.
