 "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:
"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-...."

"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"/>

"In Africa, there is a need for a generation of Africans to be educated in Africa by other Africans for the express purpose of serving Africa. All Africans living outside of Africa should be committed to devoting at least part of their time and their talent to the preservation and the enhancement of Africa. The industrialization and the total reconstruction of Africa should not be left to the Africans who live in Africa alone. This should be a world mission of African people wherever they are on the face of this earth. There is a need for a Pan-African mission that will transcend national borders, cultural and religious differences and political preference."

Between Hugo Chavez and Margaret Thatcher.

[1] One fought for the poor, the other took from the poor
[2] One took from the rich, the other gave to the rich
[3] One opposed US imperialism, the other expanded US imperialism
[4] One tried to forge pan-Latino unity, one waged war against a Latin American country
[5] One empowered the working class, one smashed the working class
[6] One got miners to form co-operatives to improve their welfare, one smashed miners organization
[7] One introduced fair taxation, the other imposed the most unjust tax in the world on the people
[8] One united the people, the other divided the people
[9] Is it any surprise that at the death of one, millions lined the streets to pay their respects, while with the other, public opinion is split right down the middle
[10] I guess the only thing they had in common was that single-minded strength of character to see their vision right through to end whatever it takes

I guess the lesson from all this is that you need to be bloody-minded and prepared to be in a minority of one if you intend to make fundamental change in a country. Obafemi Awolowo, Murtala Mohammed and Tunde Idiagbon exhibited these traits but would Nigerians ever have elected such leaders into office?

Every people get the government they deserve!

"For Africans were de-culturalized in ways intended to de-mystify, demean and devastate their personality and leave them unclear about their identity, values, and spirituality. Many foreigners even believed, and taught, that the African culture and spirituality were an impediment to progress and should be discarded. This has given the African an inferiority complex which in turn, legitimates holding them in contempt and demeaning and discrediting everything about them. In the meantime, other people's heritage has been glorified and forced upon them as being spiritually and materially superior. Such heritage is given as the answer to their material and spiritual impoverishment. But this has failed to give them identity, self-pride, confidence and hope. At best it only provides them with a place to escape to and hide to survive. By the end of the process of colonization, de-culturalization and de spiritualization of Africans had become perfected. They had no country, no capital, no culture and no spiritual philosophy to guide them. They almost came to believe that in order to become like the West they had to adopt the culture, religion, language, ideologies. money, dress etc. of the West. Also, to be guided by expatriates from the West. That belief has brought many Africans to the present dilemma." Wangari Maathai

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
