‘Through A Baby’s Eyes’ by Dr. Ayo Adene

I : The Answer. With everything my eyes have seen, in the many years I have spent living in Europe, about the near-pathological disposition of white people as a collective, less particularly as individuals, towards a race-based view of the world; And, with how that stunning realization has cleared my eyes of all the fàbú by which I was raised; I have at several junctions been disappointed in the generation that came before us: namely, our parents, and our teachers. I have been disappointed in them, because they hid the truth. They did not do enough to warn us, considering the alarming scale of how race & racism envelop everything, and determine how the world relates to us, and us to them. Nearly all of my professors, consultants and teachers at the University of Ibadan, and particularly at the College of Medicine, trained in…

The National Question and Self-determination in Nigeria: being the paper delivered by Adewale Adeoye at the Conference Organised by Maroon Square, held at the Federal College of Education, (Technical) Akoka, Lagos on July 1, 2021 By Adewale Adeoye

  • Post category:Causes

The Gist of the matter: The agitation for self-determination in Nigeria is age-long. However, in the past one decade, the campaign has seen renewed vigour. It appears to be the most dominant storyline in Nigeria today. In recent instances, we see violence being employed to push for ethnic self-determination in Nigeria. At the moment, in the year 2021, in my view, while the country is ravaged by poverty, misery, and deaths, the loudest cry in Nigeria is self-determination. It has raised serious questions about the future of Africa’s most populous country. It has assumed a life of its own far more than the demand for the provision of the essentials of life. Amidst the clamour for ethnic self-determination is the resurgence of terrorism, armed attacks, violence, kidnapping, rape and forceful seizure of land by armed gangs, all happening in the face of poverty, hopelessness,…

Nigeria is not a nation since Nigeria is a conglomerate of 371 Nations

  • Post category:Causes

First of all, getting the definition correct is the first grasp of reality. Nigeria is not a nation since Nigeria is a conglomerate of 371 Nations. It contains nearly a third of the entire African population but has only mockery & disgrace to show for it. So, for those who say, "One Nigeria", it is their word against mine. What has Nigeria achieved as a geo-political entity after 107 years? How much has been embezzled since 1955? What is the unemployment index of Nigeria today? What was the Health Budget for each 'Nigerian' for the entire year of 2020? The shuddering answer to that question is $2.50 person for the whole year of 2020. Why is this hopeless "hope of the Black race" constantly borrowing and begging from Australia to South America for the past 4 years? These questions are enough proof that Nigeria…

R.I.P. Caroline Smith: wife of Harold Sean Smith, who featured in the video “A FATHERLAND INTERVIEW – RIGGING NIGERIA”

Mr. Harold and Mrs. Carol Smith, as featured in the video “A FATHERLAND INTERVIEW - RIGGING NIGERIA” Caroline Smith, wife of Harold Sean Smith 18TH March 1931 – 8th January 2021 Fatherland Group regrets to announce the death of Caroline Smith, wife of Harold Sean Smith, on 8th January 2021. Carol was the second half of the formidably courageous and principled couple who dared to speak truth to power, to Nigeria’s Governor General in the run up to the country’s Independence Elections, Sir James Robertson, to the British Government and to the world, over the rigging of Nigeria’s Independence Elections. They sacrificed what would have been a comfortable life to ‘Soro Soke’ (Speak up!) about the British colonial government’s foul play with democracy which led to Nigeria’s sorry record of military coups, the Biafran War, corruption and the general state of retarded development and…

BBC Tell the Truth

Subject: Armed raiders capture people in Niger state - still think this is about faith and cattle??? Date: 17 February 2021 at 11:33:40 GMT To: africalive@bbc.co.uk Cc: fcocorrespondence@fco.gov.uk, diane.abbott.office@parliament.uk, wallaceb@parliament.uk Further to my recent email on the subject of BBC coverage of deaths and injuries in Ibadan, please see attached video, released by the armed Fulani raiders who have captured a number of souls in Rafi village area of Niger state. These kind of events are happening with monotonous regularity in Nigeria now. I trust the BBC will live up to my expectation and that of the thousands of Nigerian-British licence-fee payers that the BBC will do justice to the truth of what is happening in Nigeria - beyond Boko Haram and beyond any kind of known conflict that can be said to originate in misuse and abuse of religious principles as the BBC…

Subject: Africa Live: 21-22 January 2021To: <africalive@bbc.co.uk> Re: Buhari calling for calm after incident in Ibadan In light of the prevailing amount of credible evidence from inside and outside Nigeria, I am concerned that the BBC World TV service continues to repeat the line that 'There have long been tensions in Nigeria between the mainly-Muslim north and the Christian-dominated south'. Such a reductive description of the background to the prevailing organised armed Fulani incursion into Nigeria is so inadequate that I invite you to drop it and find a better one or leave it out altogether before you do any more disservice to the likes of Prof Soyinka and many many others on all sides of the situation. I further suggest you take a wider perspective on the issue of Fulani plans for Africa and factor in what is happening to East and West…
