PROJECTING EDO CULTURE IN DIASPORA

PROJECTING EDO CULTURE IN DIASPORA.



The above assertion has been in the mind of a large majority of Edo in Diaspora for a long time and many have discussed it on numerous occasions. Edo culture is unique and a source of pride to many and many more are putting up props to prevent it sliding even amongst Edo in Diaspora. As Albert Schweitzer said, ‘’I am proud of my colour for any who isn’t proud of his/her colour is not fit to live’’… Continue

A Common Edo Language

A Common Edo Language



The homogenous nature of Edo State is a reality. That a common or central language exsit among the people is still a mirage and this is a challenge before Edo State Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole who recently re-emphasised the need for an Edo Language to be evolved, taught and transmitted in public schools in the State for the sole aim of promoting the rich culture of the people.



Bearing in mind that language is a powerful and very potent tool for… Continue

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
