Northern youths are living in illusion rather than reality



Northern youths are living in illusion rather than reality

Without political power and the undue advantage it offers to people and regions the North cannot survive economically in Nigeria.

Unfortunately, this wrong dependence on political power for survival is the very reason why the North remains the most backward region in Nigeria and this is also the reason why the North will rather allow the country burn than to stay out of political power for a long time.

Yet, from things like agriculture, solar energy, wind energy and other natural resources apart from human resources the region can do better and be so self sufficient that the survival of the region will not be dependent on political power at the center.

Even at that, the political power only favors the few political Northern elites leaving the overwhelming majority of the Northerners in poverty while denying them proper education that would help most of them beat the poverty trap.

Check out how long Northerners have held political power at the highest level in Nigeria since independence and compare the standard of living in the North to the standard of living in the South. In terms of education, the Northerners record the worst results in all national examinations on a very consistent basis.

Put differently, the Northern youths that believe that political power will help them are living in illusion rather than reality because they hardly ever benefit from it since they are simply used as pawns by the few powerful elites to secure and maintain political power and the economic advantages it brings to them.

You cannot carry out fundamental change without a certain amount of madness. In this case, it comes from nonconformity, the courage to turn your back on the old formulas, the courage to invent the future. It took the madmen of yesterday for us to be able to act with extreme clarity today. I want to be one of those madmen. [...] We must dare to invent the future....Thomas Sankara
