“MY SISTER, WHETHER IT BE BIAFRA, ODUDUWA OR ANYTHING ELSE ONE THING IS CLEAR: IT IS THE PEOPLE OF THAT ZONE AND THEM ALONE THAT HAVE THE RIGHT TO MAKE THAT DECISION AND DETERMINATION BY CONDUCTING A LAWFUL AND ALL-EMBRACING REFERENDUM AND NO-ONE ELSE.
OUTSIDERS HAVE NO RIGHT TO TELL THEM WHAT TO DO. IF THEY SAY THEY WANT TO LEAVE NIGERIA IN THAT REFERENDUM THEN NO-ONE HAS THE MORAL RIGHT OR ADEQUATE POWER AND AUTHORITY TO STOP THEM.
IF THEY SAY THEY WISH TO STAY THEN NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO PUSH THEM OUT. THAT IS DEMOCRACY AND THAT IS FREEDOM.
AS YOU KNOW FOR MANY YEARS I WAS A BELIEVER IN RESTRUCTIRING BUT FOR THE LAST FEW YEARS I HAVE BELIEVED STRONGLY THAT THE FREE EXCERCISE OF THE RIGHT OF SELF-DETERMINATION OF THE VARIOUS ETHNIC NATIONALITIES IN NIGERIA IS THE WAY FORWARD AND I HAVE SAID SO OVER AND OVER AGAIN.
THIS IS BECAUSE NO-ONE TAKES RESTRUCTURING SERIOUSLY ANYMORE AND IT WILL NEVER BE ALLOWED TO HAPPEN BY THOSE THAT BELIEVE THAT THEY OWN NIGERIA.
WHATEVER YOU AND I BELIEVE THOUGH ONE THING IS CLEAR: THE NIGERIA OF 2020 IS VERY DIFFERENT TO THE NIGERIA OF 1967.
ANY ATTEMPT TO HOLD ANYONE OR ANY GROUP OF PEOPLE IN BY THE FORCE OF ARMS OR TO PERPETUATE GENOCIDE AGAINST THEM IF THEY CHOOSE TO LEAVE WILL BE MET WITH EQUAL RESISTANCE AND FORCE AND WILL ULTIMATELY FAIL.
THIS IS BECAUSE THE COUNTRY IS NOT ONLY BADLY FRACTURED AND DEEPLY DIVIDED BUT BECAUSE WE ARE ALSO SITTING ON A KEG OF ETHNIC AND RELIGIOUS GUNPOWDER WHICH WE MUST NEVER ALLOW TO IGNITE.
Iba Gani Adams
I PERSONALLY DEPLORE VIOLENCE AND WAR AND I HAVE NEVER CALLED FOR IT, CRAVED FOR IT, YEARNED FOR IT OR BELIEVED IN IT BECAUSE IT IS PURE AND UNADULTERATED EVIL.
YET THE TRUTH IS THAT THERE IS NO UNITY IN NIGERIA TODAY AND THE PEACE THAT WE BELIEVE WE HAVE IS ACTUALLY THE PEACE OF THE GRAVEYARD. IT IS AN ILLUSION.
IT IS ONLY A VERY THIN AND INCREASINGLY OVERSTRETCHED THREAD THAT HOLDS US TOGETHER AND WE MUST BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO MAKE PROVOCATIVE OR INCENDIARY STATEMENTS THAT COULD IGNITE A CONFLICT SUCH AS THE ONE YOU HAVE MADE.
TO SAY THAT A MAN, WOMAN OR PEOPLE CAN ONLY LEAVE THE BONDAGE OF NIGERIA AND BE FREE OVER YOUR “DEAD BODY” IS HURTFUL AND IT IS QUITE UNNECESSARY TOO.
Pa Ayo Adebanjo
YET IF WAR MUST COME LET IT COME AND LET US CONSIDER IT TO BE THE FINAL BATTLE FOR THE LIBERATION OF OUR PEOPLE AND TRUE INDEPENDENCE. NO PRICE IS TOO HIGH TO PAY FOR THAT. WE WOULD RATHER DIE ON OUR FEET THAN LIVE ON OUR KNEES.
TO FALL IN LOVE WITH OUR CHAINS OR TO BE A PERPETUAL AND WILLING SLAVE TO OUR COLLECTIVE OPPRESSORS IS A CURSE AND AN ABOMINATION AND WE MUST RESIST IT. THAT IS NOT THE LEGACY THAT WE SHOULD ESTABLISH FOR OUR CHILDREN.
WE EITHER HAVE A NATION OF EQUALS OR WE HAVE NO NATION AT ALL. THAT IS, HAS ALWAYS BEEN AND WILL ALWAYS BE MY VIEW AND THIS IS WELL-KNOWN TO BOTH MY FRIENDS AND MY FOES.
MY ADVICE TO YOU MY SISTER IS TO WITHDRAW THIS “OVER MY DEAD BODY” STATEMENT BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE BECAUSE ONLY GOD KNOWS TOMORROW AND BIAFRA AND/OR ODUDUWA MAY WELL COME IN OUR LIFETIME.
YOU ARE A MUCH-LOVED, WELL-EDUCATED, PROUD AND NOBLE DAUGHTER OF THE SOUTH WEST WITH AN ILLUSTRIOUS HERITAGE AND ENVIABLE ROOT. MANY MAY NOT KNOW THAT BUT I CERTAINLY DO BECAUSE I KNOW THE IMPECCABLE HISTORY OF YOUR GREAT AND NOBLE FAMILY.
WE IN THE SOUTH WEST CANNOT AFFORD TO LOSE YOU BECAUSE ODUDUWA REPUBLIC, IF AND WHEN IT IS ESTABLISHED, WILL NEED YOU IN THE NEXT FEW YEARS.
FINALLY LET ME END WITH THE FOLLOWING. MY FRIEND AND BROTHER NNAMDI KANU IS NOT DEAD BUT ALIVE AND WELL. WE WERE IN TOUCH ONLY THE OTHER DAY. I TOLD YOU THIS TWO DAYS AGO BUT YOU STILL DOUBTED ME AND TWEETED THAT DESPITE MY WORDS YOU BELIEVED THAT HE IS DEAD.
THIS HURT ME BECAUSE THE TRUST THAT EXISTS BETWEEN US IS DEEP AND PROFOUND. YOU AND I GO BACK A LONG WAY, WE HAVE NEVER DOUBTED ONE ANOTHER AND WE NEVER LIE TO ONE ANOTHER.
MOST IMPORTANTLY WE HAVE FOUGHT MANY BATTLES TOGETHER SIDE BY SIDE OVER THE YEARS AND EVER SINCE 1980 WHEN WE FIRST MET IN LONDON AND YOU HAVE ALWAYS PROVED TO BE TRUE. AS YOU KNOW I NEVER FORGET MY FRIENDS NO MATTER WHAT DIFFEENCES WE MAY HAVE.
I REPEAT TO YOU THAT NNAMDI IS ALIVE AND WELL. TAKE IT FROM ME AND PLEASE DESIST FROM SAYING OTHERWISE. DEATH IS A TERRIBLE THING AND THERE HAS BEEN TOO MUCH OF IT FLYING AROUND LATELY.
I WISH YOU WELL MY SISTER AND PLEASE DO NOT GET UPSET WITH ME FOR WRITING THIS OPEN LETTER TO YOU.
IF YOU CHOOSE TO DO SO YOU KNOW VERY WELL THAT YOU WILL HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO FORGIVE ME BECAUSE YOU ARE MORE OF A SISTER THAN JUST A FRIEND.
LIVE LONG AND PROSPER MY SISTER AND GOD BE WITH YOU NOW AND ALWAYS. YOU ARE ALWAYS IN MY PRAYERS AND I HAVE NOTHING BUT THE UTMOST ADMIRATION AND RESPECT FOR YOUR REMARKABLE COURAGE AND STRENGTH. MY LOVE TO PAPA AND MY SON TJ.

Like our page on facebook @ Info4everybody Last Wednesday, we published the success story from Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, a board-certified family practitioner in New York, after he successfully treated 350 coronavirus patients with 100 percent success using a cocktail of drugs: hydroxychloroquine, in combination with azithromycin (Z-Pak), an antibiotic to treat secondary infections, and zinc sulfate. Dr. Zelenko said he saw the symptom of shortness of breath resolved within four to six hours after treatment. Do you know that the ancient Egypt were civilized by architects from the (500,000 - 4000 BC) Nsukka Civiliation? Now, Dr. Zelenko provides updates on the treatment after he successfully treated 699 COVID-19 patients in New York. In an exclusive interview with former New York Mayor, Rudy Giuliani, Dr. Vladmir Zelenko shares the results of his latest study, which showed that out of his 699 patients treated, zero patients died, zero patients intubated, and four ho
Copied from the book, Reality as Myth by Onyeji Nnaji . The influence of the Akan on their content nations lies on their population and commonwealth of their sister nations. The Akan are one of the largest ethnic groups in West Africa. Their population is scattered across West Africa and beyond. Origin of Africa Among this huge population of the Akan, the Ghanaians are more popular, perhaps because of the political influence of the Ashanti Empire in the area.

Copied from the Book; " Reality as Myth " by Onyeji Nnaji The beauty of the discovering of the Radar Rivers and their channels is that it disproves the western hegemonic claim of the Euphrates valley being the position of the birth of the great river, all the points that opposed their claims notwithstanding. Even God himself was very perfect in His creation by placing them in their positions, hierarchically, according to their birth. The first river that flowed located the Havilah land where there are good quality gold, bdellium and fine onyx stones. Pison was the oldest of the rivers and it flowed through the land of the southern Africa. The second river flowed northward to Ethiopia. It was when Africa had been overtaken by virtue of her proximity to the Great Water that other parts of the world began to encounter the remaining river; remarkable with Hiddekel.

Taylor Swift says she is focused on the 2020 election but ‘I do feel that the celebrity involvement with Hillary’s campaign was used against her’. Photograph: Dimitrios Kambouris/VMN19/Getty Images for MTV After years of keeping herself at a largely indifferent remove, Taylor Swift has elaborated on her political ideology in a new interview with Rolling Stone. Harkening back to the perceived better times of the Obama years, Swift said, among other things, that she regrets not getting more involved in the 2016 election, and the way her allegiances or lack thereof have been manipulated by bad actors. For years her reluctance to stake out a claim one way or the other made her something of a useful political totem, including, notably, when neo-Nazis and alt-right trolls adopted her as an Aryan ideal. “Firstly, Taylor Swift is a pure Aryan goddess, like something out of classical Greek poetry. Athena reborn,” Andre Anglin of the white supremacist blog the Daily Stormer wrot
INTRODUCTION In the history of syntax, prepositions alongside other parts of speech are considered as one of the esteemed contributions of the sophists (the itinerant teachers) to the development of the human language. Etymologically, the term “preposition” belonged to the group of word class Aristotle, the founder, referred to as “syndesmoi”. Others in this group are conjunction , article and pronoun . They were thus grouped by Aristotle because they were found to be performing related functions that are summed up in binding terms and exposing the gaps amidst sentences when they are not included. As a plural term, “syndesmoi” is a collective noun that stands for the group while, conjunction , the part of speech that binds together the discourse and finds gaps in its interpretation was called “syndesmos” (see Robins, 1968). Indicating the function of prepositions, Aristotle called it “Prothesis” (a part of speech placed before other words in a composition
There are four generations…, and the fourth generation, which is the most exalted, is kingless and perfect. These people will enter the holy place of their Father and they will reside in rest … They are kings. They are the immortal within the mortal ( The Nag Hammadi, 219 ) O ne of the African homes that colonialism has completely deformed beyond certain level of recognition is Nsukka. Colonialism apart, the most affecting factor to the survival of the meaning which the rich cultural enclave, Nsukka, carries will best be blamed on postcolonial political structure. The biggest harm all these have against Nsukka as a people is that they rubbed her of the meaning of her name; their place of origin; how their fathers managed to come into their present abodes and who their ancestors were. A profound understanding of the excerpt above will open the door towards deciphering the meaning and origin of the people called Nsukka. Also read Nsukka Civilization: The Peoplin
STRICTLY FOR COUPLES … You will know that the man is the head while you are his neck. As such, you direct his focus and make him fixative Our series include the following : * Show him what he looks out for from other women * Teach him like he knows nothing * Learn to play naked games with your husband * Learn to package yourself * Learn to work on your husband M y neighbour had v owed never to let any girl survive as a salesgirl in my shop. This thing has happened for over three times. Each time we brought a new salesgirl, the girl would stay for two or three months; and suddenly she would end her contract with us. In all these, my husband did not know. So, being that the girls usually stole money and other items, the reason for their departure became genuine, thus: they ran away to avoid being punished for their actions. But behind this, the underlying truth is that the girls had been embarrassed by my neighbour who would warn them to leave her loosed husband. Re
Copied from the book, Reality as Myths by Onyeji Nnaji T he world of the Bantu travellers shows the walls of the migration that recorded the highest population among the African settlement. Originating from the largest population among the four races that settled in the east before time, all Bantu travellers were pygmies; for that was the nature of the Umudiala, the generation that gave birth to them. The Wikipedia map for Bantu migrations shown below will be of help towards digesting our descriptions of the Bantu people. Bantu migration was rated the third earliest migration of the Negro race from the east. In this regard, all their movement had involved great population of people compared to the number of people involved in the two earlier populations that gave birth to Ethiopia, Nubia and Egypt: the Walker Traveller, and the Race of Anu. Bantu population as we have identified in the third chapter above outweighs the rest of the population of the ancient fathers
T he name Nkalaha is a coinage which stands for a people occupying a geographical land and regional setting in the eastern part of Nigeria. It is a coinage which attempts to explain the direction of movement and adventure of the men who founded the community in the beginning. According to oral sources and some documentation about this community, some of these men were believed to have traveled from Ida, old Benue state of Nigeria to inhabit the land. These men had traveled on different days to locate the place. Onojah who originally founded the land was said to have been in a deep search for a place of safety as he was besieged by a fate that appeared to make him somewhat incompatible with his own people.
