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

Politics of numbers: the Wazobia lies.

The Geo-Political Setting of Edo State in Nigeria

From Cairo in Egypt, through Tunis in Tunisia, Rabat in Morocco, Dakar in Senegal, Accra in Ghana, Lagos in Nigeria, Libreville in Gabon, Luanda in Angola down to Cape town in South Africa, there is a huge question mark boldly written on the face of Africa. . ...Continue

The Ijaws from Delta, Ondo and Edo states have joined the queue to demand for the creation of an all-Ijaw state to be known as Toru-Ebe state. Though fragmented and geographically dispersed but yet populated, the Ijaw nationality which spread across Delta, Ondo and Edo have a common history and cultural heritage and a state for them will enable them sustain that aged-long tie . ...Continue

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.

The name Nigeria was taken from the Niger River running through the country. This name was coined by Flora Shaw, who later married Baron Lugard, a British colonial administrator,
Nigeria was named after the Niger River, from a native term "Ni Gir" (meaning "River Gir"). The name has often been misinterpreted as derived from the Latin niger, a reference to the *dark* complexions of the inhabitants of the region.

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

"Nobody has done a proper census for any tribe in Nigeria and all we have are just estimates and counting people who live in a state, as for the ethnic Groups, we don't know what their population are.
Now that u are in ten states does not mean u are very large, it's all a propaganda, in Bayelsa that's known as Ijaw state, how many are they? And even Bayelsa has isokos etc, and who and where are igbos in Edo? the Ika people there are not igbo, so that igbo propaganda will not work and they don't belong to ohaneze and they have not called themselves Igbo and in event of a war, they will fight against igbos as they did during the civil war,,  - Solomon Omojie -mgbejume

"For every morsel of imported rice you swallow,for every wheat flour bread you chew,for every confectionery you eat,for every tin milk you buy,for every designer wear and bag you possess,just remember that your choice have rendered thousand of Nigerians jobless.One isrealite said that the difference between them as a nation and Nigeria is that money circulate 50times within their country before 1% of it leave the shore of their country whereas in Nigeria money just move out unfettered!This reflect our crazy crave for imported goods. Not until we realise that our financial difficulties will cease not until we reverse this trend.Not until we realise that the one we hurt is you and me.And nobody can save us from us but us from us.This change must come from you and me.Food for thought." - Oshodin Ose

George Ansa Duke God bless the Poster of this article..I've been waiting for this article as an evident of the impending most anti-human disaster planned for the entire SouthSouth Region by the Igbo's using some Criminal Ijaw elements posing as "Militants" who went into an unholy alliance with the Igbo's on behalf of the entire Niger Delta tribes without consultation and their consent... Declared Niger Delta Region as being Part of BiaFra, during the GoodLuck Ebele Jonathan's administration. (The Reason will not just shock you, but provoke holy anger in you).

Evidence of how I stood up against such Criminal moves revealed further arrogant pride exhibition of ignorant blood poisoning greed of the "Ijaws" claiming 4th Largest Majority Ethnic Group after the Igbo's which was a grand plot between the Ijaws & Igbo's to not only Conscript but Sub-culture the other tribes in the entire region. An attempt to replay the Pre & Post "Old Eastern Region" Oppression, Suppression and Undermining by Cloning others perceived as "Ethnic Minorities," in the "Old Eastern Region." 

Historical records of untold stories and attempts to completely obliterate the fate suffered by their fathers, are there to know; for the Ignorant and Placid younger generation of Micro-Waved Mentality whom are mostly shallow thinking "Occidental or Oriental Cloned Clown Puppets" masses. 

This should be viewed seriously, in the light of emerging global sociopolitical and economic interest fuelling crisis and wars everywhere like that of "Syria, Congo, Mali, Libya, Eritrea, Sudan, Liberia, Sierra Leon and even the apartheid regime of South Africa and Angolan Crisis all had "Ethnic Superiority Complexity" as their bedrock..

In Light of the foregoing, being "One of the Major Reason" I stood up as a lone voice to condemn and campaign against the reelection of GEJ which if had succeeded...We would have all been engulfed the worst humanitarian Crisis of this 21st Century amidst other dire consequences from other region

Ngogo Tubo Who told you , Kalabari dialect get to Brazil ? When the Dutch kicked the Portuguese out , they took over control when Calabar was still the home of the Kalabari with the Efik as their neighbor . They were not the only Kalabari but just a branch of them . The Dutch were the ones who took the Kalabari to Guyana and other dutch territories . And it was due to that , they abandoned Calabar and moved back westward to join their other brothers . Kalabari dialect can only be found in the Dutch land especially in Guyana . Not Brazil .
