The North looks at itself

"The Conference on Peace and Security in the North will go down as a missed opportunity by elders and politicians to take stock of the strengths and weaknesses of the north. It could not have achieved much because the organisers and participants are the problem, and cannot therefore be the solution.".. Full article here

The Geo-Political Setting of Edo State in Nigeria

Whenever I look at the map of Africa, I wonder if Nature has no hands in the problems of the continent.

Nigeria and WAZOBIA: The Economic Value of Truth

While looking at the projector on the wall, Nigeria, along with many other African countries, was considered a state. The Benin Empire was considered a nation.

Nigeria has neither dream nor future. The poor masses are suffering. Millions of unemployed youths are roaming the streets, a country where deceit and corruption are being preached in the church. Today, Nigeria is embedded in a civil war as in the days of Biafra and Niger Delta militancy. Since I was born, Nigeria has never known a minuit of peace. A kingdom divided against itself shall not stand. Today, the south is happy and the north is crying; what happens tomorrow? A country full of discrimination, tribalism. Nigeria will collapse within 24 hours should the oil in Niger Delta dry up today. Criminal, corrupt leaders are the only reason why Nigeria is still one. Let's double up effort to bring down the ZOO as soon as possible

Dateline January 1970: Genera Gowon ended the civil war and declared 'No Victor, No vanquished'. He introduced the policy of the triple R. An acronym for Reconciliation, Reconstruction and Rehabilitation in a bid to re-integrate back the Igbos and Biafrans into the Nigerian Society.

Dateline 1980: President Shehu Shagari granted pardon to exiled Igbo military leader Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu and he returned home for re-integration as his people celebrated this move as a means of unifying the country. Shagari also pardoned all Igbo soldiers who defected from the Nigerian Army to the Biafran Army.The Igbos made Ojukwu 'Ezegburugbru 1 of Igbo land'. Meaning the king of igbo land.

Dateline 1983; As Shehu Shagari began his second tenure, a group of officers led by General Buhari struck and took power violently. They accused the political class of being corrupt. But Umaru Dikko clearly said the purpose of the coup was to stop Alex Ekwueme an Igbo from taking over from his boss, Alhaji Shehu Shagari.

Dateline 1983: General Buhari came into power and clamped Odumegwu Ojukwu into jail. Ojukwu was never a political office holder and couldn't have stolen public funds. He was not charged for any offence and this led him to write the famous book 'Because Im involved' and a poem titled 'Kirikiri sermons"

Dateline 2012: ''Jonathan has ended the civil war' (Igbo nation) FORTY-TWO years after the Nigerian civil war ended, the Igbo nation declared yesterday that the impressive manner in which the Federal Government and the entire Nigerian nation accorded the leader of the defunct Biafran Republic, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu a befitting burial with full military honours, has confirmed that the war has actually ended. The Igbos felt once more like Nigerians.

Dateline 2013: President Jonathan converted the dismissal of Nigerian soldiers who fought on the Biafran side to retirement and re-integrated the pardoned soldiers into the military pension scheme. Old abandoned soldiers have begun to receive their pensions as at August this year.

Dateline 2013: The Chairman of the Buhari campaign organisation followed his Lagos state counterpart and deported Igbos in large numbers. The idiocy of this action is that the actors forgot that they don't control the entrance and exit into their states.

Dateline 2014 : Chairman of Buhari campaign organisation in a rally said ''Goodluck Jonathan has developed Abia and Imo state while abandoning Rivers state, Are we Biafrans?'' (The word Biafra here is used as a derogatory word against Igbos)

Who amongst the leaders attempted to derail the process of re-integration, national unity and national building?

Who amongst this leaders took concrete steps to begin the re-integration and nation building process?

Judge them with your Votes.

Think. Drop emotions and party affiliations

Vote only those who love and promote the unity of this country.
God bless Nigeria.

( Ken Agala)

MATTERS ARISING:Abohs Of Delta State Are Not Igbos by tonychristopher(m): Language is too strong an element of identity to be erased so suddenly. In some instances traces will remain even after thousands of years. I'm sure that if the Europeans didn't record the names and some wqrds in the language as far back as the 18th century, some people would have claimed the language change was recent. Just like I've stated earlier even amidst refutation from "physicqed", the ancient Benin wasn't exclusively Edo as traces of Igbo, Yoruba and Ijaw once living there exists. Igbos fought in the Benin army while Ijaws ferried Benin people across riverine areas. Pride may cause some distortions but going by the population of Igbos and Ijaws that have Benin history, then we don't need much evidence. The problem is that in the past many of those people did not know themselves as a part of every tribe that shared same language with them and their true origin had been lost in obscurity. They however knew they came from the east.There were problems in ancient Benin that might have resulted in mass exodus of these non-Edo in company of some Edo people back to the east with some stuck halfway between Benin and Igbo area. [/quotehow convenient for u to ASSUME the emmigrants were Igbos. If u agree igbos lived in Benin during the peak of d Benin Empire, thr wud be some of their descendants, like the ?Obasekis u mentioned stil living thr now. If these people dont know a word of Igbo now, how is it difficult for u to understnd how the Abohs lost their ancestral language] -- DETAILS AT http://www.nairaland.com/1362…/abohs-delta-state-not-igbos/2
