There is one piece of good news this morning to kick start the New Year; Nigeria placed on US list as a country "prone to terrorism". Obviously, Western countries are now paying attention to incessant and unwanton deaths spurred by Nigeria northern elites for decades.

Who said Muttalab is all evil? US by this release have indeed done Nigeria a great favor. It's now up to northern Jihadist, those old sake nomadic Fulfulde men in the cloak of Fulani's to call their Almajiris in what ever toga to order. At everything turn, they have brought their murderous wishes in all strata of Nigeria life and lay claim to supremacy of governance, that is, a birth right fomented by a selfish Queen who now, has found?its cousin bone chilled by a mere saber rattling that would have claimed about 278 lives only.

It was as if other deaths before now never mattered. It was as if Gideon Akaluka who found his head on a pin stripe of stick spoke was not human. And come to think of it, Gideon Akaluka represents all the damning and unmentionable abomination that these fat cows ever unleashed on its own neighbors and yet, they went scot-free.

Some bleated?brains would cite that terrorism and or criminal acts exists in US too. Yes, that is true, but we know that American Richard Reid, the shoe bomber is in prison for acts of terrorism against his own people. We cover ours with a certain beautificationÔÇŽ"religious intolerance",?"religious riot", not minding that a husband and his wife was ordered out, made to sit on an arms chair, stripped naked and fire set on them. What's the point adding that their children were blazed down in an inferno set on their house? Meanwhile, the crowd is on the street, killing, maiming and looting, even getting near to armed soldiers till Retired Col. Abubakar Umar drove by and asked the Commander of that troupe to do his duty with these words, "What are you waiting for? I have always said that I do not support this kind of thing." Shouts of "Allah Khubar" followed as they are lifted by force of bullets and go down in multitudes.

On a fortunate day, the above is the best scenario. A replicate attempt in the North will result to anger in the East. A few onion merchants from the north may loose their lives but greater number will be ferreted to the nearest army barrack by Igbos' at the risk of their own lives. Come to think of it, how can you kill your ÔÇśmegida' {security guard} who had sold you cigarettes?on credit, payable when able {not Wall Street kind of Credit}, married to an Igbo woman and have children who often play with your kids?

We have seized asking?how we got to this point or why do our leaders hate us so much. The important thing is that they're aware that we know what they are doing; that they have been feeding on time tested "divide and rule" and the literati has been so cowered to buy into it. But who needs Nigeria unity for God's sake when even the leaders do not believe in that enclave?

I wonder where people like Dora Akunyili were when the North will suddenly rise from their card playing mat and decided that it was time to kill some people and with this decision, commenced bloodshed, month after month, year on year.

It's sacrilegious to listen to Nigerians vouching that Nigeria is not known for terrorism. It simply means that those naysayers have not had someone from their family die in the hands of marauders or a need to protect the northern elites so that the milk that flows from Rivers will not be tainted.

At this point, we do not need a home grown solution. You can not have something out of nothing. If nothing exists, what solution will you be fixing for what? It's very obvious to the discerning that Nigeria never existed as a Nation. It was obvious to Sultan Ahmadu Bello as at was to Chief Awolowo. The obviousness was clear to Zik but he choose to come before his time.

Muttalab, a 23 year old, a bred of the oligarchic barn indirectly have presented the solution. That he took to the sky is a testament to other geopolitical regions that were Nigeria experiment not in favor of the north; the whole country would have since been set ablaze.

President Obama was not born when the British handed power to the North but with a stroke of pen, he furthered that solution.

The British did not see TERRORISM in 1960 when they made a mock of handing over. What the Queen saw was a fitting oligarchy and OIL. It's almost in same way M15 new of Muttalab link to extremists since 2006 but never thought him an endangered?ostrich or rather an enough security risk; just same way Dr. Muttalab, his father, thought that by sending him to best schools with annual tuition about US$25,000 {Twenty five thousand United States Dollar} and home of about 1.5 million British Pounds Sterling, he will return and serve as a Minister, or be a Nigerian Senator or state Governor or even be a President if he is lucky. For those who are asking why; it is the way of gods.

Yes, I am most willing to submit myself for a thorough search anytime I venture to that territory. America is not wrong; my so called country abounds with terrorism. The significance of that search will not be lost in me. Coming at the heels of a New Year, I thank President Obama for this gift. If no other good news comes forth throughout this year; THIS IS ENOUGH.
