Many people do not understand why we call our land "AFRICA". This confusion about the 'NAME" of the motherland mostly based on a failure of our people to teach the fact that AFRICA is not actually a "NAME", AFRICA is a "DEFINITION" and should be related to as such. 

Here are a few examples:

AFRICA can be derived from a number of sources including the North African BerBer word "IFRI", and the BerBer word "AFER" which both can be translate to AFRICA. These two names are used by the "BANU IFRAN" from Algeria and Tripolitania. Africa can also be derived from the Egyptian AF-RUI-KA, "to turn toward the opening of the KA".

The KA is the energetic double of every person and "OPENING OF THE KA" refers to a WOMB or BIRTHPLACE. Africa would be, for the ancient Egyptians, "THE BIRTHPLACE", these and many other ancient sources including HIEROGLYPHS make reference to the tittle or designation AFRICAN.

"The first word Afu carries the meaning of house. The second word Ra, is one of the names of the Divine Creator in Africa in general and Egypt in particular. The third word Ka carries the meaning of soul or spirit. When you put it all together you get the word, Afu-Ra-Ka.

The meaning of Afu-Ra-Ka is the house for the soul or spirit of the Divine Creator. This word in this form refers to the land of the Divine Creator. The Africans looked at their land as belonging to and created by the Divine Creator. Afu-Ra-Kani, a word derived from Afu-Ra-Ka, also carries the meaning of house for the soul or spirit of the Divine Creator, but in reference to the human being, male in particular.

The plural form is Afu-Ra-Kanu, which refers to all males as houses for the spirit or soul of the Divine Creator. Afu-Rait-Kaitnit is the female house for the soul or spirit of the Divine Creator. The plural form is Afu-Rait-Kaitnut, which refers to all females as houses for the soul or spirit of the Divine Creator. This is the philosophy of the Afu-Ra-Kans, (Africans).

The Afu-Ra-Kans, (Africans), believed that all human beings were the carriers and houses for the soul and spirit of the Divine Creator."

(This information comes from the book, The Destruction Of Black Civilization: Great Issues Of A Race, 4500 B.C. to 2000 A.D. This book was written by our great ancestor and scholar, Chancellor Williams.)

Africa was also called “Akebu-Lan” (mother of mankind) and “Garden of Eden.” This name was used by the numerous tribes and ancient nations including the Nubians, Numidians, Khart-Hadddans (Carthaginians), and people of Kush (Ethiopians). We never had a single name for the entire continent, we had numerous localized names, but there is no name or definition that was used more widely across the entire continent than the definition AFRICA..

These anti-Edo political organizations you folks went to join are the most anti-African - and Africans - in the world.

They're worse than anything; we obviously can't stop you though, even Ewuare II's manifest destiny lies in our own regional party.

We have egba Omo Oduduwa and so on, NPC, AG, the forerunner of them all NCNC and then now these cancers of today.

Stay "with them", but register for your most important election first: your local election, register Edo Political Front, and if you don't, vote the front.

No self respecting Edo will - in the future - find themselves the flag bearers and cheerleaders of foreign parties with indirect rule political and economic mandates, it just doesn't work.

No sane Edo person lives to "have the ear" of someone who doesn't have Edo at their heart.

The Supreme Court is the place to remove the frustration of these lethargic and "periodic" additions to the voting rolls; here - where I live - you can fill in the forms regarding changing your voter registration at the post office and other easy access places.

At the rate things are going we're going to find ourselves truly in decline as our populations suffer from simple things like protein deficiencies in children
