BRIEF HISTORY OF OKUN PEOPLE Okun people are Yoruba descendants in Kogi state. Kogi is a multi ethnic state and Okun people are up to 20% of its population, smaller than the other two major completely different tribes, Igala and Ebira. Okun people spread across six local government areas in Kogi State, known as Kabba-Bunu, Yagba-West, Yagba-East, Mopa-Muro, Ìjùmú and Lokoja local government Areas. They speak varied dialects…Owé, Ìyàgbà, Ìjùmú, Bùnú and Oworo, but their language is generally called Okun, Okun has become a form of greeting among them. They understand one another to a greater extent and large numbers of them speak Yoruba. Their dialects are influenced by various factors. Such factor is that Kogi state shares boundaries with Kwara, Ondo, Ekiti, Niger, Benue, Nassarawa, Anambra, Enugu, Edo and Abuja. Also, The Nupe wars of the 19th century and interaction with the Hausas due to geographical zoning left an indelible mark on the Okun people and their dialects. According to oral sou ...

The dearth of historical consciousness in Nigeria (I) Posted by: Agbo Agboin Campus Life4 days ago “The nation suffers with no sense of history. Its values remain superficial and ephemeral unless imbued with a deep sense of continuity and a perception of success and achievement that transcends acquisition of temporary power or transient wealth. Such a nation cannot achieve a sense of purpose or direction or stability, and without them the future is bleak.” –Prof Jacob Adeniyi Ajayi, Emeritus Professor of History In May 1999, when former President Olusegun Obasanjo came on his “second missionary journey” as leader of this potentially yet prostrate nation, he was confronted by challenges from key parts of the country. In the east, there was a visible resurgence of the Biafra cause championed by Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB). In the West and North, The O’odua Peoples’ Congress (OPC) and the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) were pushing for an Oduduwa and ...
Belgium Coach Wilmots gotta do something about the Agbada-esque coat and brown Lord Lugard shoes
I have came to realise that, the amalgamation of Northern & southern protectorates brought about by lord lugard in 1914, was indeed a big Mistake. Northern and southern regions of Nigeria ought to exist as neigbouring countries! The labour of our "past Heroes" in their sacrosanct struggle and sacrifice of gaining Nigeria's Independence in 1960, has been in vain; The use of UN democractic or Hypocritic system of government in Nigeria under various political dispensations since 1999 till date, was a huge waste of time! It should have been much more better to be enslaved to our ex-colonial Masters or live at the Military's mercy under "Military regime" than for us-Nigerians, to be experiencing these adventures of gross High Handedness, Brutality, Persecution, clueleness, Injustice, ineptitude and so on and so forth, in the hands of a mere "bloody civilian", all in the name of UN democracy and civilian rule. Enough Of democracy Mistake!

“I Would Resign From President To Be Emir Of Kano” – Sanusi Former CBN governor, the highly intellectual world acknowledged Sanusi Lamido Sanusi has been appointed the new Emir of Kano, Nigeria’s second highest Muslim leader as the mantle holder in a historic lineage of one of Africa’s greatest dynasties. He assumed the historic top monarchical office after the death of Emir Ado Bayero (1967-2014). Kano is a historic city known at the time of the colonialists as perhaps the greatest kingdom in Africa. In those years the Kano empire was involved in massive trade across the Sahel. Over 1 million Hausa slippers were exported every year from pre-colonial Kano. Lord Lugard, the first governor general of Nigeria estimated in 1904 that there were 170 walled towns still in existence in the whole of just the Kano province of northern Nigeria. He described Kano: ‘Commercial emporium of the western Sudan.’ Of its wall, he said, ‘I have never seen, nor even imagined, anything like it in Africa.’ The ...
It is disheartening that once a great country like Nigeria is now a pale nation! Where is Yakubu Gowon, Jeremiah Useni, Danjuma TY, Joseph Wayas, Alex Ekwueme and others. I don't believe in one Nigeria. I think the above names did a mistake for not leaving Biafra to be and the worst blame goes to Lord Lugard for amalgating North & South. Ernestly speaking, the Northerners are the cause of this quagmire we are having today.

BRING BACK OUR GIRLS: This country, which Lord Lugard graciously named Nigeria, is in a very great dilemma. The problem isn't Nigeria as a country but Nigerians as a people. Nigeria as a country is a wonderful nation loved and abundantly blessed by God Almighty with everything any other nation on this planet earth, would ever wish for. This is a nation endowed with crude oil, the so called black gold, various solid minerals, excellent weather, arable land and a crop of intelligent,patriotic and hard working populace. But bad governance, "mumu" followship, lack of employment or serious poverty alleviation programs, corruption, stealing of public fund with impunity and extreme hardship have turned many hitherto patriotic good citizens into armed robbers, kidnappers, ritual killers, prostitutes, drug pushers etc.. Regarding the Chibok abducted girls, who have spent almost six weeks now in painful captivity with hardened religious zealots, without any visible hope of rescue, if it is true that our Pr ...

Cole: Legacies: Lord Lugard and indirect rule (2) Tuesday, 20 May 2014 00:00 Written by Patrick Dele Cole Continued from yesterday THE records of the colonial office are filled with thousands of documents which show “X” as the signature of Chiefs in different parts of the world selling and giving their land to the British in return for the protection of the Queen of England. The French, Danes, Germans, etc followed these same examples to show acquisition of land through sale or otherwise. The land was said to have been acquired or bought in perpetuity and from this grew the doctrine that the minerals under this land also belonged to some foreign European sovereign. At Independence, ownership was deemed to have been passed over to the new Nation. With the advent of Nollywood, it should now be possible to imagine the scene where Olu Jacobs or Pete Edochie wearing their traditional costumes sit with the British consul and someone is translating that the Chiefs and his council had sold their land in perp ...
