Great Quotations

Every available space in Benin City is now being taken over by churches. Not by cottage, small or medium scale enterprises/industries. Yet every year we turn out graduates from our tertiary institutions. Every now & then poor parents begged borrowed or stole to see their children through school. It is as if church owners are praying and/or waiting for industries to wind up so that they can build the house of "God business" therein. From Downtown Sapele Road to Ugbowo & to every nook & cranny of d City, d story is d same. Now, what hope does this portent for d future of employment in our society, knowing that govt. alone cannot employ our teeming youths seeking employment out there?" -- Hon G N Agharese

"Christianity is a money making and masses control religion while the Bible is m.c.m mind control manual.Jesus never physically walk this earth.its high time black Africans who were the first to practice real spirituality stopped defending what the oppressors of their ancestors and the inventors of racism wrote in a book.let the Jews defend Judaism with proofs, let the Europeans defend christianity with proofs and let the Arabs defend Islam with proofs.African defenders of foreign faiths where is your own spirituality and which Jew, European or Arab that is defending African spirituality ?. Wise up people and defend only your ancestry." - Samson Montana 


"The great benefit of science is that it can contribute tremendously to the alleviation of suffering at the physical level, but it is only through the cultivation of the qualities of the human heart and the transformation of our attitudes that we can begin to address and overcome our mental suffering... We need both, since the alleviation of suffering must take place at both the physical and the psychological levels." - Dalai Lama


"We want to stand upon our own feet and look fair and square at the world -- its good facts, its bad facts, its beauties, and its ugliness; see the world as it is and be not afraid of it. Conquer the world by intelligence and not merely by being slavishly subdued by the terror that comes from it. The whole conception of God is a conception derived from the ancient Oriental despotisms. It is a conception quite unworthy of free men. When you hear people in church debasing themselves and saying that they are miserable sinners, and all the rest of it, it seems contemptible and not worthy of self-respecting human beings. We ought to stand up and look the world frankly in the face. We ought to make the best we can of the world, and if it is not so good as we wish, after all it will still be better than what these others have made of it in all these ages. A good world needs knowledge, kindliness, and courage; it does not need a regretful hankering after the past or a fettering of the free intelligence by the words uttered long ago by ignorant men. It needs a fearless outlook and a free intelligence. It needs hope for the future, not looking back all the time toward a past that is dead, which we trust will be far surpassed by the future that our intelligence can create."-- By Bertrand Russell 



"We must give up that silly idea of folding our hands and waiting upon God to do everything for us. If God intended that, He would not have given us a mind, He would not have given us intelligence, He would not have given us his soul, He would not have placed us here in the midst of creation, and sorrounded us with all the beautiful things of nature. What so ever you want in life you must make your mind to do it for yourself and accomplish it for yourself whether it is rearing a home, expanding an empire, if you want to do it you must do it for yourself and then God will bless the effort because he will realise that you are using your intelligence for the BEST." - Marcus Garvey


"I was created to think for myself first and foremost. I can thereafter decide to take a little from your ideas, If I like, and incorporate it in mine. My brain was created to critically analyze issues and situations. That's why I was created. Use your GOD given brains and emotions and THINK." - Akhigbe Ikhilor

-(via facebook forum)


"Our God is no filth but ecclesiastical... Just we've been nurtured in ignorance...witnessed in ignorance, crusading ignorantly ignorance...No man shares his god,every good god is a secret.. you factually don't become a Jew because you believe in Judaism and you can't become a Christian because you believe in Christ...The African is not a christian or a moslem but a trado-environmentalist...A man who insults his god has no Shadow..I am the adherent to my forefathers custom and tradition..Be like or alike.." - Osakhiwuomwan Gabriel Ehioghiren (via facebook)


"there is no God or Devil,but there is Good and Evil. What the white man did was to take away 1 o from Good and called it God and added D to evil and called it Devil,so you will no-longer blame him for his evil and instead blame the devil he created and he inturn say's the Devil made me do it. Wise up people,wake up from your slumber dream,the truth is out there,but you only see it,if you are searching for the truth,the Bible said seek and ye shall find."

"Mind can be the enemy and mind can also be the friend. 
It is the mind that binds and it is the mind that liberates. 
When the mind is attached to objects, which are transitory and impermanent, this is the mind that binds. This is the mind that is an enemy. But a mind that does not abide anywhere, on any object, is a mind that is your friend. This is the mind that liberates. It all depends on you, on what kind of company you keep in your mind".
-- Gilles Chamboraire



''God doesn't exist ! It is the myopic egotism of man that says God created man in His own image..! Does God have 1 head 2 eyes, two legs etc? God didn't create the world in 7 days, heaven is not in the skies.. there are myriads of planets, universes, galaxies and cosmic bodies out there, God didn't create man in one day! And follow the examples of some of these guys who have given most of their cash to practical humane charities rather than enriching pastors and building churches and mosques that God CAN'T LIVE in !'' - Greg Oshobugie. (Via facebook)


Typical Nigerian mentality "only God will help us" "only God can touch our leaders so they realize what they're doing". If there is a God he's forgotten about Africa a long time ago. God cannot do anything for you, stop wasting your time and resources praying to a deity that cannot answer or help you. Nigerians you need to take matter into your hands and revolutionize this "banana republic" government because you are your only hope not God... – Jack White.


"I have talked to many Christian fanatics,,especially the Nigerian version,.(like these blind folded sheeps) and realize that they use religion as a security blanket,when there is no hope to resolving their social-economic problems. The worst part about their religion is the fact, that it was based on greed and control.The hard facts and our own common sense should have buried this myth a long time ago.The problem about this bondage is like any smart scam .Christianity is able to morph like an evolving disease.most of the time Christianity is administered at an early age (much like immunization)
once its instilled in a young carrier at such an impressionable age its very hard to shake.However,we are well equipped to debunk,diagnose this mental virus! How can we possibly know where we are going when we do not know where we have been.Christianity is not a religion its a business." - Oguega Eziza Igodomigodo (Via Facebook forum)


Proverbs 6:16-19 ESV:
There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.


"African Gods different from Jehovah and Yahwee.
Osanobua is not the father of bastard jesus, Osanobua is the father of the three Ogisos. Abasi has no connection to joseph's wife, Abasi had a wife Atai, that gave him 2 lovely kids. Eledumare didn't have any relationship with Joseph, Jecob, Isaiah, Isaac, Eledumare only send Oduduwa to deliver his message. Chukwu is not Jehovah or Yahwee, Chukwu believe in using home pets like dog and goat to deliver humanity his message. According to classics and mythology All the African Almighty Gods have nothing in common with Jewish-Arab Almighty Gods and they have no relationship with bible, quran and toran. The idea that some illegitimate son of some jewish idol died for an African man is absurd. I wish to distant myself and my kinsmen from that absurdity. You don't tell a jewish or an european man that the son of some African god died for their sin. Honestly it is an insult to tell me a foreign bastard died for me and my people. "Osanobua had no relationship with Joseph's wife, he is unconnected to David, Jecob, Samual, but has a strong relationship with all the Obas of Bini Kingdom and the daughters and sons of Igodomigodo, Osanobua is the God of all who embodies the virtues of the ogisos. Hence it is ridiculous for anyone to pray to Osanobua and be saying in the name of Jesus, because Osanobua needs no jesus to get to you or anyone." - Wake up son!. " - Friday R Inoyo


There were no group of people called the Israelis or Israelites in times of old. All we had then were the Hibarous or Hebrews.
Those claiming to be Israelis today living in the state of Israel are actually European Ashkenazi who subscribe to the Hebrew religion of Judaism .
The name ISRAEL originated from the AGIA TRIADOS,TRIA DEI OR THE THREE GODS(HOLY TRINITY) OF ISIS wife of OSIRIS, RA the Egyptian Sun God and EL a major near east God or Semitic ELOHIM.
IS = ISIS, OSIRIS, an Egyptian powerful goddess,
RA = RA, AMUN RA ,Egyptian sun god and 
EL = EL, ELOHIM, god of power,amazing wealth ( EL-ITES, the ELITE club )
" - 
Efosamson Asemontana


"Africans should stop worshipping this white man picture, what nonsense! I called this mental slavery. why on earth will Africans worship a white man image and called him Jesus. during Jesus days on earth was there anything like camera? if NO then how did they get this picture? the guy in that photo is just a mere actor and now almost all the Africans homes and place of worships got this guy photo and they worshipped his image and called him Jesus. if Africans don't stop this mental slavery then there's no way Africa can move forward."


"Religion is a slave mentality.
Religious fundamentalism is used by the rulers of society to distract citizens from their inherent corruption. Religion inspires hatred and wars, crusades and genocides. Religious fundamentalism is a violent idea that is inherent in all religions. Religion keeps you focus on superstitions instead of the real life injustices that you face each day. Religion destroys the desire for freedom. Religion is used to turn you into a spellbound fool. Religion is a corporation and you're the one that keeps it from going bankrupt with your delusional faith. The wealthy want you to believe in god's goodness, so that you may not look at their inherent rottenness. Stop praying and start thinking revolution, freedom, a bold new humanity."



"What has make this so called religion win the minds of our brother and sisters today is nothing but structure.
We are on a "psychological warfare"
I have said this here so many times.

Is either we eqiuped ourselves and dive into the war or better live it alone the way it is.because going inside without been eqiuped is just like sucide.

What am trying to say is this.
In Bene Republic where I have been few times,89 percent practice Africa spirituality.why? How?
It just because it is more organized.
So we that claim now we know that religion is shit,we must unite,organize and eqiuped our system with some psychological and metaphysical ingredients to make our food sweet...
We have to unite everyone and put what we have together to male our thing look nice.

That why you see pastors spending so much money on musical that the music you hear there will stimulate and programme your Brain to that every sunday worship. It is a mind game.
And we most be wise if not we will just deppopulate ourselves for nothing and the international body offcures will give support and solidarity to the church..." - Nosa Duke

This is what I wrote and i stand by it will repost a hundred times on the internet... Skip if not confortable with it... may be not for you.. just take it so. thank you... " Jesús kills critical thinking and reason. Makes you mentally lazy . The bastard Jesús, surpose king of the jews who are not even Christians is a big virus on African peoples mind. I love Christians but hate Jesús!. Jesús is a mental code that keeps Black Africa people to remain in their voluntary mental slavery and underdevelopment. I denounce Jesús a million times becuase he is the author, creator of africans mental illness and societal physical degradatión. Jesus is a fraud used to enslave black people. Jesús is the code that keep africa in mental prison to be the laughing stock of the World. .. Every human society with their own religion, think for themselves. Name it judaism, hindus, budda, islam etc except Africans , black people ... we are so good in killing everything about us, but love everything about others. Why why why? I have finally discoverd that The bastard jewish boy jesus is responsible if there was ever anything call Jesus as a physical person. Jesús love in the bible is like a love poem, to you the way you take it and nothing spiritual about it. A very bad one indeed. Too many books on love and films that teach you love more than the Jesús fable stories. Have served many years as a pastor and as so called Evangelist in Nigeria for many years. Read the whole bible twice with more than 30years of daily devotional studies. Read the koran once. All I can say is that I regretted every beat of it. Was a victim of the Christian faith like many of my african brothers and sisters. So time to kill Jesus again and again in Africa to open up, lógical, critical thinking skill on Africans minds. Embrace scientific mental and physical excercize to creative and innovative ideals and approach

I have had this thought for quite awhile now, seeing the way Africans have taken over the defense and propagation of the religion of their slave masters(europeans and Arabs) .
If the slave masters have come with this African traditional worship system, guess the attitude you have towards it would have been different because it is coming from your perceived superior.
Now the religion is yours developed by your ancestors for your own good, you were never whipped nor forced to follow it, because it is yours and that seems to be where the problem is for you. You don't believe your ancestors brain was developed enough to do anything positive only the foreigners brain works in your own estimation. You are dead wrong and only people with functional brains can understand the message here, people who have learnt how to think without boundaries and not people who have been taught what to think and can only think within the context of what they have been told they are allowed to.

We Africans are a funny lot. They brought religion and a new set of laws on decency and decorum; a cocktail of bullshit and we literary gobbled it up as if our lives depended on it. After all, we wanted to be of a progressive world.

Now the same people who brought it here, have brought the reverse of it, all kinds immorality, indecency, greed... you name it, and what do we do? We gobble it up like our lives depend on it, why? We want to be a part of a Progressive world.

They called us primitive and we decided to drop our 'primitiveness' so they could accept us. Then they picked our primitiveness and they want to hand it back to us because if we don't, we will be primitive...

This circle will never end until such a time when we Africans will accept ourselves and say "no white people, we have our shit together, you can follow us too...".Don Esrom Thinji.

People are always going on about how African religions/Gods were so violent and evil.
I guess it was Orunmila that wiped the earth with a flood in the old testament. Killed first borns. Killed children. Killed non-virgins. Sodom and Gomorrah was Orunmila too, It was Orunmila that Elisha prayed to that sent 2 bears to kill 42 children that called him bald headed. I bet it was the Ifa Divination that also sanctioned the Inquisition, validated slavery, haunted heathens and burnt Salem witches at the stake.

Damn Orunmila, why did you have to be so damn violent and genocidal!

Nigeria And The Foreign Religion:

Islam was forced on our people, they were beaten, killed, humiliated to accept it. But today Nigerians are killing their own people to defend a religion that was violently imposed on them.

Christianity was forced on our people through tricks, lies and brainwashing. But today Nigerians are using it to duped and exploit their own people, using the same tricks, lies and brainwashing to enrich themselves in the expense of our people. . by Mike Anders

Comment by Otedo News Update on July 10, 2017 at 2:49pm

We were told by the Christian Missionaries that an Unbeliever (Infidel) is one who does not follow the teachings of Christ. We were also told by the Invading Islamic Jihadists that Infidels are those who do not follow the tenets of Islam and the teachings of Prophet Mohammed. Both Christianity and Islam promise Jannah/ Heaven to the Black people in Africa who follow their teachings and Hell fire to those who do not follow their teachings.
African traditional Spirituality of Ifa, Amadioha, Ogun, Sango, Aruchukwu, Egbesu etc are yet to come out with a definition of who an Infidel is and the condition that will guarantee one to join his/her Ancestors in peace after life on earth.
As for me, an Infidel falls in any of these definitions:
1) Any European or Arab who brainwashed a Blackman in Africa to kill his fellow Black brothers
2) Any Blackman in Africa who connive with foreigners to kill his fellow Black brothers
3) Any Blackman in Africa who invite imperialists bodies like World Bank and IMF to economically sabotage his Black brothers
4) Any government official in Africa who uses tax payer’s money to sponsor tourists (Pilgrims) to Saudi Arabia and Israel, thereby boosting the economy of those countries at the detriment of his own country.
5) Any Corrupt government official in Africa who loot his people and bank the money abroad, thereby boosting the economy of foreigners at the detriment of his Black brothers.
6) Any Militant/Rebel/Terrorist/Robber/Kidnaper in Africa who buys/collects weapons from people of other race to cause pains and destruction to his Black brothers and sisters in Africa.
7) Any Pastor/Prophet who uses a foreign/borrowed religion to defraud Africans
8) Any Pastor/Prophet who connive with public office holders/Politician to steal money meant for alleviating the suffering of his countrymen
9) Any Imam/Sheik who indoctrinate his Black brothers with violent philosophy to kill other Africans
10) Any Head of government in Africa who perambulates around in the land of foreigners to beg them to come and solve our security challenges.
~This is the time the colour of our skin should matter more than our mental religious orientation else the long plan to eliminate the Black race (beginning with Nigeria) by other races will be accomplished.

Most of our people are really trapped. 
They want to go to heaven. 
Ask them if there father build any house in the sky. 
They say, they will die first to go to heaven. 
Because jesus is no longer coming again. 
If they see death, they will shout: blood of jesus. .!
Still they don't want to die to see jesus. 
Religion is indeed comedy to the intelligents. 
Only fools believe in religion. 
It's a trap. .!!!
Nobody exist in those books.

Information Technology/Computer Science - An allegory of a diviner!
Africa missed the Industrial Revolution boat which started in 1760 big time and we cannot afford to miss the current Information/Digital Revolution!
It is Africa's main hope of breaking the shackles of underdevelopment because this Information Age presents a level playing fields for all participants.
Information Technology in my opinion and as a practitioner, is one of the easiest professions to get into. You don't need a factory or large capital outlay or large hectares of land to get started. Surprisingly, most people already have what they need to get started - your head and a computer.
By the way, the smart phone in your hand is a powerful computer, more powerful than the computer that helped put two men on the moon in 1969!
Introduction to Computer Science - a traditional perspective...
Within our modern day computers are intangible beings called computational processes.
These processes interact with other invisible and intangible beings called data with the aim of changing their states.
The actions of these processes are governed by sequential rules called a computer program that programmers create.
Computer programs control the operations of these computational processes.
Effectively, computer programmers can animate the spirits inside the computer with their incantations (programs).
A computational process is akin to a diviner's idea of a spirit - invisible, intangible and incorporeal but very potent! It can fly a jumbo jet (autopilot software). It can pay out money from ATM machines. It can remotely drive a car on the surface of Mars! It can also control the behaviour of robots in a car factory and some have started driving cars in Europe and America now!
The instructions we use to conjure these abstract processes are just like a diviner's incantations. They are meticulously concocted from emblematic and symbolic pronouncements in mysterious and enigmatic utterances called programming languages (e.g C, Java, C++, Lisp, Python etc) that specify the function we want our process to undertake.
When a computational process works according to plan, it gives us accurate results.
Just like an apprentice to a competent diviner, a new and inexperienced computer programmers must study to comprehend and to anticipate the repercussions of their dexterity. Surprisingly, small mistakes (called bugs) in computer programs can have devastating effects!
Luckily for novice programmers, learning to develop software is not as dangerous as learning to be a diviner. This is because the spirits we deal with are securely contained within our computer hard drives and computer memories.
Nevertheless, computer programming demands serious attention to details, caution, expertise and intelligence because a little glitch in a software can cause a nuclear reactor to self destruct or cause a jumbo jet to fall from the sky!
Computer programmers are the current day diviners. However, they don't seek to know the minds of gods but the minds of humans. They can predict with great accuracy: tomorrow's weather, the likelihood of a stock price rising, the future price of gold or crude oil etc using sophisticated computer algorithms.

Who is actually robbing God?..

BOWEN UNIVERSITY N650,000 per semester

COVENANT UNIVERSITY N640,000 per semester

BENSON IDAHOSA N500,000 per semester

BABCOCK UNIVERSITY N450,000 per semester

REDEEMERS UNIVERSITY N450,000 per semester


MADONNA UNIVERSITY N350,000 per semester.

All these UNIVERSITIES were built from TITHES and
OFFERINGS of the common people who now can't afford
to send their children to these schools today.

Where is the morals and responsibilities of the
churches as charity in Nigeria?

What is the difference between church and political leadership in Nigeria?

These schools were all built with the sweats of their church members who kept sowing seeds like: 
-special offering seeds
-first fruit seed, 
-redemption seed,
-thanksgiving seed, 
-harvest seed, 
-pastor's seed,
-church building seed,
-evangelism seed, 
-father's day seed, 
-mother's day seed,
-children' day seed,
-Pastor's cake seed, 
-olive oil seed....etc.

These schools are now elite
schools, only for the rich
politician children.

The gainers then use the profits to buy private planes & jets to fly up high in luxury, ride Exotic Cars and live in expensive Mansions, while their members, (who are mostly the least of Jesus people) sleep hungry.

The next Sunday, they will read Malachi 3:6-12 to these members again without making reference to Deuteronomy 14:22-29 about their own responsibility to these poor members in their churches.

If you think this is unfair, like me, please pass on this message because this is reality and we also need the CHANGE here!!!

Thank God for early missionaries who built schools and gave basic
education FREE or NEAR FREE to many of us including the CURRENT LEADERSHIP of these churches and universities.

The TRUTH is a bitter pill to swallow.
