BY MESHACK.. ASIANS AND UGANDA

When Idi Amin expelled Asians from Uganda in 1972 he thought that the wealth of the Asians would be transferred to Ugandans. But it did not happen because the wealth of the Asians was in their work ethic and in their brains. Those Ugandans that took over the businesses of the Asians by force were not able to sustain those businesses and the businesses all collapsed almost to the last one. In fact, just 2 years after expelling the Asians, Uganda's currency failed and its economy collapsed and has STILL NOT recovered to its pre 1972 expulsion level. In 2000, when Robert Mugabe tried the same thing in Zimbabwe, most of the white farmers fled Zimbabwe (with many of them going to Kwara state in Nigeria). Exactly the same thing happened. The Zimbabweans who gave quit notices to the white farmers and forcefully took over their farms were not able to maintain them and by 2005 Zimbabwe, which once exported food, became an importer of basic food items. Within 4 short years after expelling the white farmers, Zimbabwe's currency failed and its economy collapsed and has STILL NOT recovered. As Jesus said in Matthew 11:15 "He that hath ears to hear, let him hear!" Any group that thinks that by issuing a quit notice to the Igbos from Northern Nigeria, they can appropriate their property and business had better understand that history does not repeat itself. Men repeat history. What happened in Uganda and Zimbabwe will again happen to anyone who asks the Igbos to quit. In Kano, Kaduna, Sokoto and Katsina, almost 70% of their mechanics, doctors, dentists, spare part dealers, pharmacists, chemists and hydroelectric engineers are Southerners. To quote the Emir of Kano, HRM Muhammadu Sanusi II, “The majority of technicians in Kano are from the south while untrained indigenes beg. How does that make sense?" In Kano, the town of Kwankwaso where the former Governor of Kano state, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso is from is believed to have been founded by an Igbo man named Felix Okonkwo, alias Okonkwo Kano who was a member of the Northern Nigeria House of chiefs in 1957. At about 1927 he had founded a trading business at the railway tracks approaching Kano where he bought groundnuts, processed it and transported it to Lagos and named his business Okonkwo and Sons. He had a large sign board. The native born Kano people called it Okonkwosons which eventually became Kwankwasons and eventually Kwankwaso. After spending 90 years in Kano, would Okonkwo's sons now leave and return to the Southeast? We do not have to learn from our mistakes. Let us be wise and learn from the mistakes of Uganda and Zimbabwe. If it is implemented, this quit notice will affect the Igbos for a little while. But they are resilient. They will overcome it within a short time. But will those quitting them be able to overcome it? According to Omawunmi, if you ask me, na who I go ask? Nice writeup from Reno Omokri!!!
