In every contest, if you are yet to meet your match, an equal opposition or a stronger challenger, one will hold the view of invisibility looking back at previous successes. The Persian Immortal unit was seen as undefeatable until they met a battle-hardened Spartans/Greecians at Thermopylae. King Leonidas I of Sparta lead a smaller force from Sparta and Greece to embarrassed over 100 thousand Persian at the Pass of Thermopylae. In 1942, the Nazi leader, Hitler, matched his undefeated 6th Army, the most highly decorated German army unit of 2 million men towards the doorstep of the Soviet leader Joseph Stalin. The battle of Stalingrad sees the historical defeat of the undefeated and battle-hardened 6th Army that had previously recorded victories in Europe. In the early 90s, the Iraqis Republic Guard Corp was a unit to reckon with in the middle-east. They were better trained, disciplined, equipped. These elite troops of the Iraqi army are directly reporting to Saddam Hussein. The RGFC, despite its popularity, suffer and humiliating defeat during Operation Desert Storm, unable to lunch a serious counter-attack or mount a serious defence. The above are few instances where the supposed powerful unit fall like a pack of a card when they meet an equal opposition or a stronger challenge. Politicians from the Northern part of Nigeria have seen themselves as the one who holds the key to the kingdom due to population advantage. However, this is no longer true as the political compass of the north is changing rapidly and it is moving towards the southwestern pattern. Banditry and insurgency have awakened the Northern minority tribes (especially from the northwest and northeast) into a new political reality. From the grassroots perspective, northern candidates will not get the same old numbers they were boasting of, it will be easier for a Politician sitting in Rivers or Lagos to get over 90% votes of the Northern minority group just by riding a horse into the city than the most popular northern candidate to get 50%.
