Why Must You Eat Cow And Died In Their Hands?

Dear Nigerians, there's a very important piece of history I'll like to see take place in Nigeria.

On December 1, 1955, a middle-aged "negro woman" in America, Mrs. Rosa Parks, refused to stand up for a young white man who just entered the segregated bus she was ridding in. If she did, she would have had to stand all through the journey.

At that time, the bus is segregated in most parts of America: white people sit in front rows and black people sit from the back. Blacks would normally pay fare to the driver in the front, then step out of the bus and go through the back door to find a place in an already tight area at the back. If the allocated spaces for blacks are filled, all other blacks joining the bus would have to stand even when the more than half of the bus spaces reserved for whites are empty! Such was the injustice and humiliation that black Americans faced then.

For refusing to stand up for the young white man, Mrs Rosa Parks was immediately arrested, scheduled for prosecution on Monday December 5. Then the Rev. Martins Luther King and his NAACP comrades stepped in. They called out the people. They spoke about the sad realities of their existence, the terror of an unjust system and barbaric treatments in the hands of fellow Americans.

In addition to speaking out, these Black Americans decided to take action to protest that injustice by boycotting the segregated buses. The boycott began December 6, 1955.

Dear friends, here is the crux of the matter: Black Americans took action! For 1 year and 16 days, they trekked to and from work or boarded improvised pooled taxes, everyday, until the US supreme courts declared segregation unconstitutional!

During the struggle, someone offered one tired black woman a lift in his pool car, but she declined, saying, "I ain't trekking for myself, but for my children and grandchildren "!

So, dear friends, whenever we don’t take action and we feel unobligated, unconcerned, we should simply remember the black Americans and those women. Without them, the freedom that US enjoys today wouldn't have happened, or happened too late. Obama may not have become the President of  the United States.

So, the questions before all of us in Nigeria now are: Are we slaves to the herdsmen popularly called Fulani? Are you ready not to buy or eat cow for yourself and for your generation yet unborn as the black Americans did? Are we willing to do our own little bits for the cause of good governance and security of our people? Are we ready to act? 

If today, it is Benue state, Kaduna state, Taraba state, Enugu state, etc, which state or community is next? We have complained and grumbled enough. Now is the time to take action.

Dear friends, there's a general consensus that with effect from February 2018, there should be a total boycott of Fulani cow meat, including suya, kanda (skin), etc. We should discipline our appetite and make this sacrifice now to put an end to the killing of farmers because of cows.

Nigeria is not found among the top 20 nations in the global cattle business. 

None of the top Cattle nations are practicing Cattle Colonies or primitive Cattle grazing. 

All the top Cattle nations are applying modern technology and ranching to maximise optimum profit from the Cattle businesses. 

None of these top nations earning billions of dollars annually from the Cattle businesses condone the killing of their Citizens in the place of Cattle business. 

How come, Nigeria that doesn't earn a single dollar from Cattle export has continued to condone the killing of its Citizens on behalf of free Cattle grazing?

How come the present government has declared war against the villagers and the farmers by not arresting the perpetrators of ethnic cleansing going on in the nation?

Are these Cattle grazing about all the nooks and crannies of the country not owned by wealthy and influential Nigeria ?

Does it enter into the skull of these influential people that there are billions of dollars to be MADE by adopting global ranching best practices?

The government rather than declaring war against POVERTY, it has declared WAR AGAINST ITS OWN PEOPLE by continually fostering primitive open grazing, grazing reserves or Cattle Colonies upon Nigerians. 

We can get protein from chicken, goat meat, fish, pork, etc. How can we continue to patronize their business and then they turn around to kill our people and destroy our communities? Enough is enough.
