Governor Shettima was crying today when he met Buhari, over the killings done by Boko Haram in his state.
When the South-South was sharing amnesty money, the leaders of the north did not like it, so they organized and established Boko Haram, to foment trouble and hopefully get their own amnesty and share money.
Buhari even said that an attack on Boko Haram is an attack on the North.
But luck ran out on them when Yusuf the founder of Boko Haram was killed by the police and the successor of Yusuf, Shekau, chose not to want to listen to anyone and instead decided to pursue the true meaning of Boko Haram, going ahead to destroy both the infidels and the Muslims who did not want the true Islamic state to be created.
Today, Boko Haram has destroyed the North-east and brought the North to its knees.
The south got Niger Delta Development Commission and the north started clamouring for theirs.
Today, the north has its own North East Development Commission but Boko Haram cannot allow it to function.
While the projects done by the NDDC are there for all to see, Boko Haram destroys the projects done by the NEDC and the workers are even scared of going there.
The South-South had a president and the North sold a lie to its people, telling them that Jonathan was sponsoring Boko Haram and that the only way to defeat Boko Haram was to remove the South-Southern man, Jonathan, as president.
Today, the South-southern man has been removed as president and the north has got what it wanted, and a Northerner is the President.
The president from the north appointed northerners to head almost all security outfits in the country, yet Boko Haram has grown stronger, it has spread from Bornu to Adamawa, and is now killing those in Zamfara.
They now know that the only time the military had Boko Haram in check was when the army was headed by a Southerner, Ihejirika.
The North has got the three things it wanted: Insurgence, a Development Commission and a Northerner as president, but her peace is gone.
In fact, Boko Haram is now deadlier than it was under Jonathan, so much that the governor of a Boko Haram ravaged State would go to Abuja to cry.
The other day the Zamfara state governor said that he is scared of coming out and that no one, including himself, is safe anymore.
That is the plight of the north.
They did not calculate well what they want.
All they wanted was power, whether political power, brute force or any type of power.
And when they get it they didn’t know what to do with it.
And in the end, power, like a Frankenstein monster, is destroying them.
