"MANY Nigerians outside the country today who found shelter and good education have always refused to come back home while those who managed to come, run back immediately. Why? They say Nigeria is a country without good roads, portable water, regular electricity supply, good education system, employment, fake products, unknown sickness and worse of all, bad leaders, forgetting that the land or country where they are, was built by people who came together as a team. I ask how do they feel if the white talk bad about their fatherland? Maybe they possibly deny their origin at that time. Though Nigeria before and after independence had been lacking a lot in all aspects as in political, economic, educational and social aspect inspite of how we are blessed with all forms of natural resources. But one should know that these problems do not just come but by means of people. Lack of cohesive drive is one problem that is delaying development in the country. We complain but fail to realize that we are the cause. We don’t think of how those western world did theirs and come together as one to develop ours. Greediness, selfishness are criminal acts also killing Nigeria. We always call on government to repair roads, give light, portable water but most minor problems that could be fixed by heads of streets successful men or chairmen of local governments are left undone, because they keep their money to themselves. They refuse to assist the government due to sheer greed. Unwillingness: Many Nigerians have the ability and knowledge to do things but they deliberately refuse. Unwillingness is also delaying development." - details at http://ihuanedo.ning.com/profiles/blogs/why-nigerians-in-diaspora

"Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan has said that spiralling violence blamed on the radical Islamist group Boko Haram is "even worse" than the country's 1960s civil war. "The situation we have in our hands is even worse than the civil war that we fought," Jonathan said at a church service on Sunday, referring to Nigeria's 1967-70 civil war that killed more than a million people.."

We Are  at War With Christians-Malam Abubakar Shekau, Boko Haram Le...alt
Wearing a bullet proof vest and sandwiched between two AK-47s, Abubakar Shekau, the leader of Boko Haram, the radical Islamic sect responsible for the death of over 500 people in 2011 alone can be seen in a video released earlier today listing the group's grievances against the Nigerian state and President Jonathan. Also mentioned by name is the President of CAN, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, whom the group singled out for condemnation after his call on Christians to protect themselves which call he made after the Christmas Day bomb attack at the St. Theresa's Catholic Church at Madalla, near the Federal Capital Territory.

In the video, Abubakar Shekau boasted that the security agencies could not vanquish his group. It may be recalled that President Jonathan had himself admitted that the sect had infiltrated all arms of government including the security forces.

Speaking further in the 15 minute video, Mr. Shekau said the group could only hold talks with the government in accordance with the teachings of Islam.

He declared war on all Christians (presumably those living in Nigeria) "We are also at war with Christians because the whole world knows what they did to us," 

Shekau said that "the group's recent successes is an indication that they in the right path."

In the video, Shekau took out time to single out Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor as the object of the group's hatred and took offense to his call on Christians to defend themselves.

Shekau spoke in Hausa throughout the video.

Angry protesters attack a car on the third day of nation wide strike following the removal of a fuel subsidy by the government in Lagos, Nigeria, Wednesday, Jan. 11, 2012. Nigeria's government has warned an ongoing, paralyzing national strike risks anarchy in the oil-rich nation, as demonstrations over spiraling fuel prices and government corruption entered its third day Wednesday.

Fuel protests grow: 13 killed in attacks in Benin

Religiously motivated attacks killed 13 people in Nigeria on Tuesday, as tens of thousands took to the streets in a second day of nationwide protests against the scrapping of a fuel subsidy that has nearly doubled petrol prices. A mob killed five people in a mosque in Benin City in the south while in the north, Islamist militants shot dead eight people in a bar. The attacks raised fears that President Goodluck Jonathan's two major security headaches, opposition to fuel deregulation and sectarian strife, were merging into one. An aid worker whose organisation operates in the Benin area and who declined to be identified, said the mosque attack had forced 3,000 Muslims of northern origin to flee. The assault was most likely a reprisal against northern Muslims for attacks by the radical Islamist sect Boko Haram on Christians of southern origin in the north, including a spate of deadly raids on churches which have killed dozens.




Until the philosophy which hold one race superior
And another
Is finally
And permanently
And abandoned -
Everywhere is war -
Me say war.

That until there no longer
First class and second class citizens of any nation
Until the colour of a man's skin
Is of no more significance than the colour of his eyes -
Me say war.

That until the basic human rights
Are equally guaranteed to all,
Without regard to race -
Dis a war.

That until that day
The dream of lasting peace,
World citizenship
Rule of international morality
Will remain in but a fleeting illusion to be pursued,
But never attained -
Now everywhere is war - war.

And until the ignoble and unhappy regimes
that hold our brothers in Angola,
In Mozambique,
South Africa
Sub-human bondage
Have been toppled,
Utterly destroyed -
Well, everywhere is war -
Me say war.

War in the east,
War in the west,
War up north,
War down south -
War - war -
Rumours of war.
And until that day,
The African continent
Will not know peace,
We Africans will fight - we find it necessary -
And we know we shall win
As we are confident
In the victory

Of good over evil -
Good over evil, yeah!
Good over evil -
Good over evil, yeah!
Good over evil -
Good over evil, yeah! /fadeout/

Liberating The African Mind


A message to all members of OTEDO.COM

"FACT:The core problem in Africa is a feeling of inferiority - a slave mentality and colonial mentality, pure and simple. A closer scrutiny has revealed that this feeling of low self-esteem has totally destroyed the thought processes of so many African leaders and elites to the point that they hate Africa and their own African people. For instance, this feeling of inferiority clearly explains the real cause of the shameless robbery of African people by most of their own leaders and elites only to proudly hide the loot in foreign countries. Put differently, since African leaders/elites know that foreign leaders and elites do not have bank accounts and mansions in Africa; since African leaders/elites know that foreign leaders/elites consider Africa irrelevant, why are they very proud to open and maintain huge bank accounts in foreign countries? The obvious answer is slave mentality, period! This slave mentality - this feeling of inferiority - has also prevented so many African leaders/elites from seeing the irrationality of sending millions of African money abroad several times a year just for medical checkups when it is very obvious that such funds are more than enough to build world-class hospitals in Africa. As demonstrated by LAM, there are so many evils being unleashed upon Africa today by a feeling of inferiority. In plain language, African core problem is a mind problem, nothing more, nothing less. In actuality, Africa does not need "structural adjustment" or IMF loan, Africa needs most of its "educated" leaders/elites to think and adjust their minds; and to think and adjust their minds, their "education" must rise above inferiority complex/mental slavery/colonial mentality. African leaders and elites must put the welfare of their own people first as other leaders and elites we call "developed" or "civilized" put the welfare of their own people. Therefore, if most African leaders/elites continue to pretend that they do not know that foreign leaders have wisely refused to open and maintain bank accounts or build mansions in Africa; if most African leaders/elites continue to shamelessly rob Africa only to proudly pile up the loot abroad; if most African leaders/elites continue to build "greener pastures" abroad when their own African people have no "pasture;" if most African leaders/elites continue to allow their minds to be destroyed by mental slavery; in fact, if their minds are not liberated, such countries as Nigeria, Burundi, Uganda, Sudan, Kenya, Congo, etc, will continue to decay, remain poor and underdeveloped." -- details http://ihuanedo.ning.com/group/owaafrica/forum/topics/liberating-the-african-mind

"Nigerian political parties actually do not bother articulating their economic platforms, their agenda of what they are going to do when they are elected to offices. Nigerian politicians do not seek public office because they are motivated to do something for the public but because they want to be able to get their shares of the national cake. Thus, it comes to pass that a typical Nigerian presidential administration could serve its four years without having completed a major project, done something about the country’s collapsed education, erratic electricity and god-awful roads or providing employment to the teeming mass of unemployed Nigerian youth. Nigerian leaders are not in the business of developing their country but in the business of stealing from it. The media in so far that it is useful offers Nigerian leaders the opportunity for them to show their disgustingly bloated faces in the pages of newspapers and have their praise singers sing their praises of them. In a properly functioning democracy the media would play a major role in Nigeria ’s 2011 election. But if one hopes that that is going to be the case one is living on another planet, not planet Nigeria . Given Nigeria’s history the chances are that the election would be rigged while INEC (Independent National Election Commission) sing the same tunes that the election was free and fair." - details  http://ihuanedo.ning.com/group/betterlivingofedolitesandnigerians/f...

No mosque, church burnt in Edo - Oshiomhole

By Eubaldus Enahoro

BENIN CITY - Edo State Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole yesterday debunked media reports that five mosques were burnt during the protests over the withdrawal of subsidy in the state and blamed politicians for sponsoring crisis in the state.

Speaking to news men at the Government House, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole said no mosque or church were burnt contrary to media reports.

“Going round the city today, you will find that the riotous elements have been put out. Of course as you will appreciate there are people with political grievances.

There are people in Edo State who have been out of office as a result of the manner they mismanaged the economy of the state over the years, who want to hide under this to sponsor some miscreants to cause trouble.

He said the story which was false intended to create fear in the minds of the ordinary citizens, adding that the grievances of the protesters is about price of petroleum products and not a religious battle.

The Governor noted that “at this hour we must put Nigeria first and indeed the interest of the ordinary people who are also hit by the policy they are protesting against.”

“The agenda is fuel price increase, let nobody hide under this to cause tension in the state. Let us put Nigeria first and the interest of the ordinary Nigerians. Nobody can benefit from such rumours because it will be double loss to the poor if the little they have is taken away by hoodlums”, he noted.

The governor disclosed that those who were frightened with the rumour are however going back to their houses.

According to him, “the security of the very ordinary people who are the target of these miscreants should be guaranteed. Edo people in history are not known for vengeance and I can confirm no Edo person in any part of the country has been attacked.”

Comrade Oshiomhole said that everybody residing in Edo State should regard themselves as indigenes and reassured that the government will ensure that they enjoy that right and privileges to live in full freedom.

“The government will take steps to defend the inalienable rights of everyone who resides in the state, even those passing through the state,” he added.

The Governor led journalists to see the mosque at Lagos Street junction and the Hausa quarters at Esigie, to see how the Muslims are settling down and to confirm that no mosque was torched as reported in the media.
A spokesman of the Muslims, Alh. Seriki Nufawa thanked the governor for the visit and noted that the mosque is safe as people were seen worshipping inside.

I can authouritatively state that as at this time.. Benin City has returned to a state of semi-normalcy,several shops and traders going about their businesses,the streets are quite sparse but there is absolutely no threat to peace and security, the crisis which ensued on Mon and spilled on to Tue was actually part of a pre-ochestrated plan to politicize and criminalize the peaceful protests as planned by Organized Labour and Civil Society....


The situation was made worse when groups of youths started to vandalize streetlamps,traffic lights and the campaign Headquarters of President Jonathan on Sapele Rd during the demonstration march...when the police moved in to protect peaceful marchers and Govt property,the propagandist bloggers got to work with inflamatory BBMs,SMSs,Facebook Posts and Comments,Twitter etc,there were rumours that Edo Citizens were killed on their way to Benin in a bus,that the Governor Adams Oshiomhole had brought an "operation storm" fromthe "north" and that they had killed 3 Edo people on Ring rd...that The Gov had issued a "shoot at sight" order !! All sorts of inciteful and inflamatory talk..this was the excuse the vandals needed to attack the Hausa Community in an attempt to disposses them of their foreign exchange in the name of ethnic reprisal attacks....


Thankfully only minor injuries were sustained, NO casualties reported to the best of Govts knowledge,there were reports of a young protester falling off the back of a motorcycle....


The vandals also set 4 vehicles ablaze around the area of the Mosque, as the mobs escalated and grew in confidence while using the subsidy removal protests as cover,a political dimension was introduced with paid youths carrying on anti- Oshiomhole demonstrations,these youths were being ferried from point to point in Jeeps with covered up plates,brand new unregistered Motor cycles,well coordinated and funded...the police were hopelessly outmanuevered..


The Comrade Governor thus made the decision to open up security posts across the city to provide refuge and respite for this large group of threatened citizens,we put them up in police stations,air force bases,army barracks and even Churches ! Then a mechanism was put in place to feed and cater for the needs of these 14,740 sudden refugees... The Comrade Governor then made a direct appeal to all Youth leaders and Citizen's of Goodwill to open their doors and protect their neighbours...


The response was overwhelming,in no time Edo people mobilized and retook their streets from the looters once organized Labour and Civil Society had pulled out of the streets...

The average Edo man displayed a nobility of character that I thought was long gone and stood up as one to protect the Arewa,many of whom were born in Benin,married to Benin women or men and spoke Benin quite fluently.....I was humbled... Were it not for the quick and prompt actions of The Comrade Governor who himself took the streets with volunteer citizens,meeting with protesters,refugees,sweeping and cleaning the streets,appealing for peace and calm,the situation would have been so much worse...we went 72 hrs on crisis mode and existed on coffee and biscuits,but we're proud to say that apart from a few unfortunate mishaps and damage to public and private property... WE KEPT OUR PEOPLE SAFE !!! THANK GOD AND THANK ALL NOBLE SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF EDO WHO OPENED THEIR HOMES AND HEARTS !!! GOD BLESS EDO !!

Hospital: At least 120 killed in Nigeria attacks

(AP)  KANO, Nigeria — Hospital records seen by an Associated Press reporter in north Nigeria's largest city show at least 120 people were killed in a series of coordinated attacks by a radical Islamist sect there.

Officals at Murtala Muhammed Specialist Hospital in Kano, the city's largest, declined to speak to journalists. However, AP reporters counted more than 100 corpses in the hospital's mortuary and saw the records during a visit there Saturday.

More could be dead at other hospitals and clinics in the city of more than 9 million people after attacks Friday claimed by the radical sect known as Boko Haram.

THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below.

KANO, Nigeria (AP) — A coordinated series of bombings and attacks claimed by a radical Islamist sect left "many" dead and injured in northern Nigeria's largest city, a Nigerian Red Cross spokesman said Saturday, as gunfire still echoed around some areas of the sprawling city.

Soldiers and police officers swarmed over streets Saturday in Kano, a city of more than 9 million people that remains an important political and religious hub in Nigeria's Muslim north. While witnesses of Friday's attack said they saw seven dead bodies, the scope of the assault claimed by a sect known as Boko Haram also suggests the death toll could rise.
