The North has been the seat of power in Nigeria since independence, looking at Nigeria's former head of states and generals are all from Arewa, that is northern Nigeria, in as much as the North in rich in leadership and a lot of things, the North still suffers more. In this article, I will be sharing with you some major statistical distribution in northern Nigeria and how it affects the northerners and the country at large.

It will interest you to know that Arewa (Northern Nigeria) is house to about 60% of Nigeria's Population, 70% of the Land mass in the country, 80% of solid minerals, 70% of food production in the country, but sadly is home for over 75% of poor Nigerians. Is that not an irony?. It might also interest you to know that northern Nigeria use to be the most peaceful region in the country, but today, it houses of the internally displaced person's in the country. Have you ever asked yourself why?.

The northern part of Nigeria today is under siege, with innocent citizens dying for reasons they have no idea of, bandits invade, spending hours stealing, killing, raping, destroying and pillaging, yet, no conscious effort by the government to combat them and no much sympathy from the even the top leaders.

You can recall when 58 years old Arakunri was killed in Ondo state by criminals, the vice president Yemi Osinbanjo flew the presidential private jet down to Ondo to commensurate with the family, he repeated the same thing when a corper serving with channel's TV was killed by a stray bullet in the clash between the shites and the police.

In Arewa however, it has become a norm for bandits to kill as innocent Nigerians as possible, the next thing the governors will do is to dust the paper they wrote in the last commiseration, condole with the victims and promise to bring the perpetrators to book. With this happening more often than usual, it brings us to the big question, please who will save Arewa from the bandits?.
