He said that Fulani people are saddled with the burden of leadership and that they have to shoulder that responsibility because they are qualified for it.
What do you think about that assertion? As a matter of fact, some would argue that in terms of history, they are the least qualified and the least deserving to lead and rule.
If it was simply about qualifications and not a brutal show of power and the force of arms, they would be nowhere because there are many nationalities in Nigeria that are far more qualified to take the lead than they were or are. The Fulani are not amongst the most educated in Nigeria and if the truth be told, education came to them very late.
That is why they said was too early for our nation to have independence. Imagine someone saying it was too early to be free and to break the yoke of colonialism.
That is what the North, led by the Fulani, said in They walked out of Parliament when the motion was moved because they knew that they were not qualified or capable of leading and managing the affairs of a newly independent nation then and they made it clear that they did not want southern leadership or domination and that they would rather have British rule than southern rule.
That is why the British loved The fulani essay so much and favoured them. Because of their attitude and their aggression and hostility to the better educated and more qualified South and because of their morbid fear of southerners, southern rule and domination, they held up our independence for eight years.
And even then, the understanding and deal between them and the British was that the system would be rigged, the census figures would be doctored and the Armed Forces would be skewed, all in their favour so that an independent Nigeria would be led by them and not by the far more qualified and better educated South.

Would he even be a professor? What was his father, his grandfather and his great grandfather in life? Were they educated or were they qualified in any way to lead? Compare that to the southern experience and their southern counterparts.
The Yoruba, for example, had people in the best universities in the world like Oxford and Cambridge as far back as the early when Usman Dan Fodio was still learning to ride a horse and planning his Jihad. The Igbo also had many educated and enlightened people then.
What do people like Labdo and his progenitors and forefathers know about that? Do you know how many people in the South who were educated by the great Christian missionaries and the Anglican Church, including my great grandfather, Rev. Where were their forefathers that were so qualified to lead educated and what was the nature of that education?
What about Wole Soyinka, the Ransom-Kutis, the Chinua Achebes, the Christopher Okigbos and so many others that came in the later generation of great minds and that went to the top Nigerian universities, when they were amongst the best in Africa? How many of such people do the Fulani have?
They knew nothing about western education till many years later. The first northern lawyer was called to the bar inwhich was over years after the first Yoruba lawyer, Sapara Williams, was called to the bar.

Youths catch man having sex with married woman in the bush The earliest and most educated family in the North were the Attas and they were Ibira and not Fulani.

Most of the northern tribes, like their southern counterparts, had thousands of years of rich history, empires and kingdoms in their present locations long before the Fulani came and when they were still plying the trade routes with their camels to North Africa from Futa Jallon in Guinea and herding cattle.
