After the British Government represented by its ambassador to Nigeria, made a statement where they said ‘They’ll not allow Nigeria to divide under their watch’; Femi Fani–Kayode, the former director of media and publicity to former President Goodluck Jonathan, wrote:

…Meanwhile, just as their counterparts are doing in Nigeria, the racial integrationists, the champions of globalization, the apostles of a new world order and the advocates of mass migration continue to test the waters by attempting to place obstacles in the path of the true believers and ethnic nationalists all over the world. For example Theresa May, the British Prime Minister, suggested that this was not the time to discuss the issue of a new referendum for Scottish independence just two weeks ago.

Thankfully Alex Salmon, the former leader of the Scottish Nationalist Party, responded to her in an eloquent manner by assuring her that if she continued talking that way her words and attitude would actually guarantee Scottish independence rather than prevent it. His warning is appropriate and timely. Again just last week, the President of the European Commission, Jeanne Claude Junker, who is one of the world’s most rabid and diehard integrationists and globalists, said that President Donald Trump’s stated desire to see “more Brexits” and to “witness more countries leave the European Union” was “provocative and inappropriate” and that in retaliation the European Union may consider calling on states like Ohio and Texas to secede from the United States of America.

Nigel Farage MEP, the former leader of the British United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) and one of the most formidable and respected nationalists in the world today, jumped into the ring the following day with a swift and devastating response. He said that Junkers’ words were inappropriate and misplaced because the United States of America came together as a consequence of consensus whilst the European Union was brought together by fiat and compulsion. He also made the point that, unlike America, which is a transparent and functional democracy, the European Union is run by a group of faceless and unelected bureaucrats and officials at the European Commission in Brussels. Farage is absolutely right. His was indeed a beautiful response.

Both Salmon and Farage have spoken the minds of millions of people all over the world including Nigeria. The bottom line is that you cannot compel a people to remain part of any nation unless they choose to be in that nation and you cannot deny them the right of self-determination and the freedom of choice and association. Thankfully that message is spreading. The forces of integration and globalisation are clearly on the ropes in today’s fast-changing world just as they are in Nigeria.

Nothing can stop the quest for self-determination or the glorious march of the ethnic nationalists. A couple of weeks ago in an essay titled “The Hausa Fulani, The Yoruba and The Slaughter in Ile-Ife” (Part 2) yours truly wrote the following: “The right to take pride in our ethnicity and invoke the principle of self-determination cannot be denied. We reject the concept of globalisation and the enthronement of a new world order. We reject the concept of an artificial, man-made, multi-cultural, multi-religious, mongrel mega-nation that is made up of ethnic and religious incompatibles. We reject the notion that we must bury our ethnicity, forget our differences, arrest our development, discard our values and enthrone the idea of a strange and complicated hybrid nation where we are expected to live with and accommodate those that hate our faith, despise our people, scorn our values and that rape, maim and kill our loved ones and compatriots in the name of religion, conquest, land, cows and cattle.

The truth is that no force in hell or on earth can stop the rise and establishment of the sovereign state of Biafra, Oduduwa or any other ethnic nation that will one day be carved out of what is presently known as Nigeria”. I believe that these words are relevant and prophetic. Those that do not see the wisdom in restructuring Nigeria have guaranteed her future dissolution. Yet sadly this is a fact that appears to be completely lost on both the British and French Ambassadors given their simplistic and asinine contributions to what is essentially a very complicated, multi-layered, multifaceted, problematic, volatile and dangerous long-standing debate which borders on the nationality question in Nigeria. May the counsel of the Lord stand in our nation and may His name be glorified. (TO BE CONTINUED).

FEMI FANI KAYODE {FFK} SPEAKS! #CELONARANTS!!

“From whence shall we expect the approach of danger? Shall some trans-Atlantic military giant step the earth and crush us at a blow? Never. All the armies of Europe and Asia…could not by force take a drink from the Ohio River or make a track on the Blue Ridge in the trial of a thousand years. No, if destruction be our lot we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of free men we will live forever or die by suicide.”
Abraham Lincoln

After the British Government represented by its ambassador to Nigeria, made a statement where they said ‘They’ll not allow Nigeria to divide under their watch’; Femi Fani–Kayode, the former director of media and publicity to former President Goodluck Jonathan, wrote:

THE MARCH OF THE ETHNIC NATIONALISTS  AND A FRIENDLY WARNING FOR THE BRITISH AND FRENCH AMBASSADORS  (PART 1)

In 1941 during the course of the Second World War, the most famous alumna of my old school Harrow and the Prime Minister of Great Britain, Sir Winston Churchill, said the following words to General Bernard Montgomery,  who was also known as the “Spartan General”, the hero of the Battle of Alamein, the Commander of the famous British Desert Rats and the Field Marshall of the British Armed Forces. He said,

“Monty, never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in, except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy”.

These are powerful and inspiring words from one of the greatest leaders that the world has ever known.

Today I share those words and sentiments with every Nigerian who yearns for freedom from the bondage of ethnic slavery and religious bigotry and who believes that the only way forward is to restructure or redefine Nigeria.

Those of us that have these noble aspirations will “never yield to force” and we will “never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy”.  Like Shakespeare’s Macbeth we shall be “bold, bloody and resolute” and if necessary we shall “fight until the flesh be hacked from our bones”.

No matter what comes our way we shall be encouraged, we shall walk tall, we shall stand firm and we shall stand strong.

This is because our cause is just and even though our enemies may have today, we know that tomorrow belongs to us. Again even though the night may be dark, we know that joy comes in the  morning!

Whatever the powers that be in Empire Nigeria throw our way we shall not bow and we shall not be cowed.

Like our Lord and Saviour and Commander in Chief, Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Son of the Living God once did on the cross two thousand years aģo, for the glory that lies ahead, we shall take their taunts and insults, bear their horrendous persecution, endure their malevolence and wickedness and despise the shame.

We shall stand our ground, hold our heads up high, fight a good fight and, by the grace of the Living God, in the end, we shall prevail.

We draw strength from the fact that we are not alone in this struggle. Others that have also suffered injustice and the most brutal form of subjugation and repression from their oppressors have similar hopes and aspirations as ours.

Consider the nation of Scotland. Her people are yearning to have another referendum on whether or not to leave the United Kingdom in 2018.

When Nicola Sturgeon, the leader of the Scottish Nationalist Party, announced their intention I did not hear Theresa May, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, throw insults and threats at her or accuse her of treason.

I did not hear the French government or the French Ambassador to the UK telling the Scots that they would never be allowed to have their way and that they should perish the thought of Scottish independence.

Yet when it comes to the affairs of Nigeria it appears that everyone feels that they can tell us what to do.

For example Denys Gauer, the French Ambassador to Nigeria, recently said that those that were agitating for Biafra were indulging in an exercise in futility and that they would never achieve their dream or ambition. What a sad testimony and sorry tale this is.

It appears that the man knows little about the deep resolve of those who are fighting for their freedom and frankly he needs to learn a thing or two about the history of his own country before he pontificates to us about ours.

His unsolicited counsel is both misguided and inappropiate and we completely reject it.
The French people, since the days of the Great Revolution of 1789 and bold leaders and reformere like Maximilien Robespierre, Jean-Paul Marat and years later, the greatest of them all, Napolean Bonaparte, have always prided themselves on being the friends of the subjugated and the deprived.

They have always been the champions of liberty and freedom. They have always resisted oppression and tyranny. They must not stop now.

To make matters worse Paul Arkwright, the British Ambassador to Nigeria, threw his hat into the ring as well and said that the United Kingdom “would not allow” Nigeria to break up.

Such ill-conceived pomposity, self-serving clap trap and what the great writer and historian David Icke describes as the “arrogance of ignorance” has no place in the post-colonial world.

Simply put Arkwright, and all other “Englanders” that think like him, ought to remind himself that Nigeria is no longer a British colony.

In any case given the consequences of Brexit and the strong agitation for Scottish, Welsh and even Northern Irish independence it appears to me that the British Ambassador would do better by trying to ensure that the United Kingdom itself remains together rather than attempt to tell us what we “will be” or “not be” allowed to do in Nigeria.

He would also do well to remember that the days of “Rule Brittania” are long over, that the “Great” has been taken out of “Britain” and that the evil amalglamation and unworkable contraption that his forefathers forced on us in 1914 is fast unravelling as a consequence of the hideous atrocities, sheer cruelty and sociopathic meglomania of those that they imposed on us as our internal colonial masters.

The bottom line is that the destiny of this nation will be determined by the people of Nigeria and no-one else.

Whether the Ambassador of France, the Ambassador of the United Kingdom or anyone else likes it or not the world is fast changing.

The philosophy, ethos and culture of ethnic nationalism is gaining ground and pride of place. Nothing terrifies the hegemonists, the internal colonial masters and the ‘born to rule’ conquerors in Nigeria more than this because Yoruba, Igbo and Ijaw nationalism coupled with the quest for southern and Middle Belt emancipation is their worse nightmare.

The glorious march of ethnic nationalism, the desire to break the yoke of internal colonialism, slavery and bondage, the agitation for self-determination and the quest for a fundamental restructuring of Nigeria or, failing that, the establishment of new and independent nation states to replace her is at an all-time high.

And so is the determination of the various ethnic groups and nationalities to resist oppression, subjugation and tyranny and defend and protect the interests of their people.

If anyone doubts that they should speak with the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC), the Oodua Liberation Movement (OLM), the Oodua Nationalist Coalition(ONAC), the Movement For The Actualisation Of The Sovereign State Of Biafa (MASSOB), the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), the Ijaw Youth Congress (IYC), the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND), the Middle Belt Youth Forum (MBYF), the Southern Kaduna People’s Union (SOKAPU), the Ombatse Militia Group (OMG), the Tiv Cultural and Development Association (TCDA), the Berom Militias, the Tiv Militias, the Zaar militias, the Jukun militias, the Ngas Militias, the Nigerian Christian Falange (NCF), the Sons of Gideon (SG) and numerous other groups that are not only well-motivated, well- organised and well-equipped but also highly focused and committed to their cause and ready to defend the interests of their people no matter the price that may have to be paid.

I sincerely hope and pray that it never happens because I deplore violence and I am a man if peace but if push ever comes to shove and there is a showdown, the Nigerian Armed Forces and security agencies, the Fulani militias and herdsmen and Boko Haram will have a very hard time containing the fury and power of any or all of these groups.

I say this because it is not the size of the dog in the fight that counts but rather the size of the fight in the dog!  (TO BE CONTINUED).

INTERLINKING PATTERNS

Dance above the surface of the world. Let your thoughts lift you into creativity that is not hampered by opinionsRed Haircrow

*INTERLINKING PATTERNS*

Life seems like interfering patterns

Things which seem to have no connection eventually reveals their ties

Oppositions suddenly becomes best of partners just because one had something to offer the other

I think life is much more than it seems

Full of mystery I tell you

Layers of underlying meanings

Truths and even more lies

Circumstances interconnected through life in the most intriguing ways

Just live with a free mind friend

Expect less from waves of good vibes you release

Affect that next man with a casual smile

I stay away from hugs but I do love

Life seems like interlinking patterns
Bright or dull colours on those patterns
Are completely our choice to make

We often have bad thoughts creeping into our minds particularly after a bad situation. Before acting out in anger or berating yourself in shame, take a deep breath and here are the ways to turn your negative thoughts around.

WALKING-MALE

Distract Yourself
Unable to stop the negative thoughts from flowing in, take a break from your desk and venture out into the greenery outside your office for a breather. Letting your mind get distracted by something other than letting those negative thoughts lingering around.

Food for Thoughts
Sometimes we feel much much better after a good meal. A friend of mine loves to binge on food whenever she is depressed or frustrated with something and she always felt better once she is full.

LIGHTS (SOMETIMES), CAMERA, ACTION
There was film in Nigeria way before the birth of Nollywood and the realities surrounding her coming to fruition. Nigerians have always loved the art-house movie; Trust Nigerian movie-makers to take advantage of the whole situation. I was pretty young back then but I completely related with works of Tunde Kelani; who spearheaded the exodus of educated Nigerian playwrights in diaspora back into the Nigerian market; they created serious films here in the 1970’s. (and also In 1970 the African-American filmmaker Ossie Davies directed the movie Konji’s Harvest in Nigeria.)

“Nigeria has always had a tradition of traveling theater,” says Kelani. “Yoruba performers troops used to travel from village to village to perform by order of local leaders. That performing-arts culture also migrated to radio, television and now film. Nigerians love storytelling in any form that seems to expose and educate”

But the high-volume, low-budget, straight-to-video industry that we think of as Nollywood began in another traditionally Nigerian way—through trade. And expect me to say this; The men from the native Ibo tribe, did a very good job! Some-time in the 1980’s, a group of Alaba market traders went to Europe to see what discarded goods they could pick up and hawk back home.

They came back with a huge chunk of discarded VHS tapes, which they soon figured out would sell for more if they put a little bit of cheap local content on them. Since Nigeria had almost no stand-alone cinemas (even today, there are less than 20 of them, in a country that houses over 173.6 million people ) or mass-market content geared at locals, the tapes quickly became gold. An industry was born even though they were no content in what they produced.. But they had the courage to go for something they thought was realistic and a potential sell-out…. You could put your trust on the average Ibo man to do tricks with the little that falls into his hands.

Its easy to make fun of Nollywood movies, with titles like occult sacrifice and educated Housemaids, which, of course, is a complete sequel to Authentic Housemaids. Yeah I know all this titles sounds silly but I promise you would get a shocker, when you get to see how much this local producers make from this “senseless movies”.

It just gets to show that these local people here really relate to what this producers have to offer. And no matter how we seem to hate the works of this producers they keep getting very popular, even outside the shores of this country. But there is a reason the industry has, until now, remained low end and poor host to complete and fine entertainment; the likes of Hollywood and Bollywood.

Picture speaks!

…CONTINUES FROM- PART 1 AND PART 2

A government that can’t boast of it’s people enjoying a functional power grid and other simple basics amenities. And you would hear this old trolls who have ruled us for years openly boast of being in power for a very long time undisputed.

Did they use their time in office to achieve any positive feat? NO!!!

Not because they have done a good job but because they have embezzled enough money to fund their selfish plans and agendas, mostly outside this country. With unrepentant attitudes displayed with insane actions, they go ahead to indirectly treating a few of us that understands the rule of law; staging a mild war against anyone who have deliberately chosen to oppose them, their lies and their obvious strategies.
…after years of treating my continent as a place of unending misery, I think it’s completely reasonable and sensible to ask why the western press still tout the optimistic story about Africa and its people to the rest of the world, with reason that–six of the world’s top 10 fastest growing economies are here in Africa, {even with the complete mess in here} and they would still say Nigeria is still tops among them, while in reality, the country has no growth in almost every sector that has something to do with the populace directly

…an almost non- existing oil and mineral reserve they say we blessed with; as we buy fuel way higher than Nations that can’t boast of crude at all, and having a GDP that has completely jumped backwards, and at the same time the statistics used to measuring this GDP is far from explicit, makes me ask on, if what they keep telling us about the GDP is true, why are this calculations somehow stylishly hidden from a people that really wants to know where their country stand…

I would want this to be clearly noted; they are lying when they continually point at areas in an almost decayed system that reflects a huge consumer-spending potentials of a fast growing middle class. BULLSHIT!! The entire country in like one in the middle of stagnant water. And the worst part of this story is that, we the masses are part of the blame, as we have perfected the act of “suffering and smiling”, choosing to speak less or not speak at all, even if we get pushed to the wall several times by one senseless government of the day.

I live in a country that has a systemic pattern of corruption at almost every level. From the top, way down to the bottom; over 60% of my countries population lives in “real” abject poverty, 30% of Children are not educated, and life expectancy is way below 60 years- I think the 11th lowest in the world.

Then there is the total lack of security, as tragically evidenced by the number of fatal terrorist attacks by senseless Fulani Herdsmen. Please don’t even tell me we are way past that now. I could still do a quick flash back for you, that’s if you want. If you tell me that in recent times the attacks by the Boko Haram fellas has slowed down, please try explaining to me the recent threats on lives and property by the uneducated fulani idiots that think using life ammunition on armless farmers would bring back cows that were stolen by cattle rustlers?

Who are the same boko haram men, if you do your maths well; a sect that had a strong affiliation with the world’s number enemy. I guess I wouldn’t have to explain or go into detail, the terror ISIS has inflicted on lives and property.
