Hello, Balarabe

The vast majority of Arabs are in the Saudi-led alliance against Iran, whom they rightly see as having imperial interests against them.

Pardon my impertinence toward your new President. I wish him and your people well, and wish only the worst for the Boko Haram. I do not want to get involved with Nigerian tribal politics -- you can sort that out yourselves. The swing vote was the Yorubas, who may have been getting tired of the Delta people and rampant corruption.
