 "If we must stop the external imperialists –America and Europe from stealing African natural resources, we must be ready to stop internal imperialists from doing so as well. As Nigerians, it is time we say final no to internal imperialists if we must stop external imperialists. True Federalism or outright division of Nigeria will reduce external imperialists influence on our wellbeing" -

"Africans are neither angels nor demons; they posses and exercise the potentialities of both angels and demons. They can be as kind as the Germans, but they can be as murderous as the Germans; Africans can be as generous as the Americans, but they can be as greedy as the Americans; they can be as friendly as the Russians, but they can be as cruel as the Russians; they can be as honest as the English, but they can also be as equally hypocritical. In their human nature, Africans are Germans, Swiss, Chinese, Indians or English-...."

Ehi Sed These heads of state are only caretakers for Western investments in their countries....they cant boast that they produce anything substantive locally..or claim to tax anything substantive from local commercial activity.. its even worse on the local level...from realtionship between state governors and traditional rulers and Chiefs ...we have adopted foriegn systems to govern ourselves and are failing at it....Africans have historically governed ourselves with our own tribalistic systems--till today, our tribal identities remains stronger than the national(adopted/post colonial) identities...we need to respect and empower our tribalistic systems by empowering the traditional rulers and chiefs within the frame work of the national(adopted) system. In other words, State governors should be beholden to the traditional rulers and chiefs. As the chiefs themselves recognize the Governor and Presdents role in promoting state/national cohesion in the larger international realm

Africa doesn't really have an economy, most of the country is at civil war.
Africa is rich in cheap resources; but the better power play here is more of positioning troops (because last i know ever soldier was trained in virology in less then 3 weeks) to help control the quarantine zone, and place heavy media attention on helping the Africans deal with their 4th Outbreak so the President does not look so much like a villian; but question is while were watching 1 hand whats going on in the other...?
A stupid kkkracker.
GBAO
SO AFRICA IS ONE BIG COUNTRY AT CIVIL WAR!
AFRICA "HAS NO ECONOMY!"
AFRICA IS "RICH IN CHEAP RESOURCE!"
"POWER PLAY!"
THIS IS HOW THE TYPICAL KKKRACKER SEES "AFRICA" AND AFRICANS.
AFRICA IS ONE BIG CHESS BOARD AND AFRICANS ARE PAWNS TO BE DISCARDED AS AND WHEN NECESSARY.
I WISH I CAME ACROSS MORE ALBINO MUTANT NEANDERTHALS LIKE THIS, FACE TO FACE ON A DAILY BASIS.

NIGERIANS ARE DECENT PEOPLE:::::INSULTING NIGERIA is big Business outside Nigeria::::::

****R.I.P. Dr. Ozodi Thomas Osuji - An Elegy.y by Nobody: 7:08am On Nov 11, 2012
Yes.. True to hype, Dr Ozodi is a doctorate degree holder from a renowned university. Getting down to specifics, he spent the better part of his education and practice in science and psychology and thus, has better knowledge in that field. However, he makes a living, of recent, writing essays on politics and economy-related issues, a highly expert-sensitive issues, which almost every individual has a fair knowledge on. As a result, his amateurish jabbers and irrational views hardly go unnoticed, as people constantly highlight his errors. Well, like I said, since the issues directly affects the people, everyone is entitled to his/her own opinion. Though it's a tad unreasonable to spend time and money publishing such unrefined facts. No envy though. Ride On!
But just recently, he's ventured into Literature, probably now bored with politics and economics, as he did get bored with science and psychology much earlier too. Well, this time, it definitely will backfire, because we're not just talking 'effects on people' here. We're talking about 'understanding literature' as pure and natural skill, harnessed and honed over the years, to create ideas that unfolds our inner desires and yearns, one which judging by the educational background and interests of Dr Ozodi, cannot be developed overnight. But he dared venture and successfully enacted an absolute irony, albeit humourous scene.
In Nigeria per say, there are three Literature experts. One is 'Prof. Wole Soyinka'. Another is 'Dr. Chinua Achebe' while the third is 'Others'. Dr Ozodi, in spite of his 'egg-stage' in literary conception, did launch a scathing attack on one of the two finests Nigeria has ever produced in the 'Literature World', Dr Chinua Achebe, criticizing and defaming the facts embedded in his book 'There was a Country'. Well, I have just three facts to outline for Dr Ozodi..which he must take seriously.

1. You are no literature scholar, talk less, a mogul. So, where is the proof that you can decipher the tone of that text? Everybody is entitled to his/her own moods, regarding a piece, but the tone, which defines the truest feelings and messages imbedded in such texts, remains the sole property of the author, and except he lets you into it, you can only guess at it flaily, which you just did and went on to publish.

2. Congratulations once again, at redefining your seemingly fading tag 'Igbo-Hating Igboman'. With the enthusiasm at which you set out to do that, and with the amazing success recorded, one always imagines if you get paid by 'SOMEONE' to focus on it?

3. Finally, I'm beginning to feel, you're really living your name, 'Osuji'. Like the biblical 'Jabez', I have no doubt you believe in your name and the impact it has on your life. Need I remind you, a variant of 'Osuji' means 'Yam Pounder' or 'Pounder of Yam'. And when a person is called Osuji ordinarily, it's not because the person naturally pounds yam, it's because of a trick used by lazy yam pounders to escape hard work continuously. The trick is to focus on chasing any little animal in sight, especially domestic fowls, assuming they're always a bother to you, instead of focusing on pounding the yam, so that at the end of the day, they do no work, but still get their pay.. So, Dr Ozodi.. Are you an Osuji?

President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe, has taken a swipe on Nigeria, labeling the country and her citizens as corrupt. He made the remark during his 90th birthday luncheon hosted by the service chiefs and the public commission.

President Robert Mugabe

Mugabe said Zimbabweans are now almost behaving like Nigerians who have to be corruptly paid for every service.

“Are we now like Nigeria where you have to reach your pocket to get anything done,” he said. “You see we used to go to Nigeria and every time we went there we had to carry extra cash in our pockets to corruptly pay for everything.
You get into a plane in Nigeria and you sit there and the crew keeps dilly dulling without taking off as they wait for you to pay them to fly the plane,” said the president followed by a huge laugh from the delegates attending his birthday bash. The current corruption rankings in the world rank Zimbabwe’s corruption a lot worse than Nigeria.

Nigeria is ranked 163 worst corrupt country in the world while Zimbabwe is an embarrassing 170 third from the bottom.
The report was carried by Bulawayo24 News, based in Zimbabwe. (104)

Colonization is suppression and exploitation designed to keep a people powerless, mystified, dependent and subordinate.

"Facts--which are stronger then argument, more profound then reasoning, more dependable then opinions--silences dispute, supercedes predictions, and facts always end the argument unless you are talking to a fool."

"There must be a collective defence of Africa against imperialism. All African States have a national and continental responsibility to refuse the presence of Africom on the African soil. African leaders who play the “Africom game” with America are digging the grave for Africa. They are endangering the security of all Africans in Africa."

Primordial Africa - Archaeology/Anthropology/Cosmology's photo.
Africa's people, immensely diverse in physical type, language, and culture have been long cast in the stereotype of drum-beating savages or simple children of nature surrounded by an impenetrable jungle world. The reality of history and the diversity of the landscape deny this myth. Provided below is a link to National Geographic's Ethnolinguistic Map of the Peoples of Africa. The map was published in December 1971 with the article "The Zulus: Black Nation in a Land of Apartheid," this map is a supplement to the "Heritage of Africa" map printed in the same issue. Featuring a physical map with the names of groups and their languages, this map also contains beautiful illustrations and interesting facts about the diverse peoples that inhabit the continent. <a href=http://maps.nationalgeographic.com/maps/print-collection/africa-eth..." width="320" height="397"/>

EDE N'ERHENA VBE EDO

"

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
