Bar Solomon Musa SOKAPU President


Why is the “North” huffing and puffing against Buhari now?


When Southern Kaduna was bleeding, the “North” kept quiet;

When terrorists took over Benue State, the “North” kept Mum;

When Plateau State cried out, the “North” closed its ears;

Chibok, Dapchi fell, no single whimper; 

Southern Kaduna,   Benue, Plateau, 

Taraba  are not  parts of  the  “North”,“their North”;



Now, Northern Elders Forum, Coalition of Northern Youths, several groups in the North, “their North” are huffing and puffing; 

Clerics are spewing and speaking out “the truth”; 

Women, Youths and children are protesting because their “North” is at the receiving end;

 Katsina, Zamfara, Birnin Gwari Sokoto – “their North” is bleeding; 



Chibok and Dapchi girls were not worth the protest by the North, “their North”; 

Southern Kaduna, Benue, Plateau, Taraba are not worth the protests, by the North, “their North”; 

They are not part of “their North”; 



Listen to the speeches now;

 Watch the protests now; 

 Pay attention to the anger;

Southern   Kaduna,   Benue,   Plateau,   Taraba,   Chibok   or   Dapchi   are   not mentioned;



It is all about the North, “their North” ;

 When we cried out, we expected empathy; 

We expected the North and the South to cry out with us; 

We expected all humanity to cry out with us;

We expected the North and the South to protest with us; 

We expected the North and the South to join us; 

The South cried with and joined us;



When we called on the people to take all available legal means to protect and defend themselves;

We were called wailers;

We were vilified;

We were called names; 

We were accused of hate speech;



  1. Y. Danjuma was hated;

SOKAPU was misunderstood; 

We were threatened;

We were arrested;

 We were incarcerated;



Buhari, Buhari, Buhari is the President; 

All security organs are in the hands of Northerners, “their North”;

Their North is now bleeding;

The same bleeding the Middle Belt bled and still bleeds;

 The same bleeding the South-South, South-West and South-East bled and still bleed; 



And the North is now huffing and puffing ;

Huffing and puffing about the North, “their North”      




It is not about North or South; 

It is not about Christianity or Islam;

It is not about Atyap, Angas; Hausa, Yoruba or Igbos; 

It is about the blood that flows; 

North or South, the blood is flowing;

Children, women, the aged, the vulnerable, blood is flowing; 

The blood of the Atyap is precious;

The blood of the Yoruba is precious;



The blood of the Muslim is precious;

The blood of the Christian is precious;

We   chose   to   cry   out   wherever   men   and   women   are   murdered,  raped, terrorized; 

We cry out at injustice against Christians and Muslims;

 We chose to cry out;

We are crying for the North, yes, “their North”;

 We are crying for the South;

We are crying for Nigeria;

We are crying for humanity   

Barr Musa is the former president of Southern Kaduna Peoples Union (SOKAPU)
