Back to Eden: The return of the global Original African civilization.

The current globally dominant Western civilization is based on the concept of scarcity and the world won’t know peace and sustainability until it returns to the Original African civilization based on abundance and natural justice.

According to the science of Precession of the Equinox, the world is currently at the cusp of a 2000 year change in global consciousness from scarcity to abundance and civilizational change, whereby we might not need to work as solar powered robots and artificial intelligence plant and harvest, ocean water is turned to drinking water and every chore is computerized. This new civilization will be propelled from Nigeria in the next couple of decades as Nigeria becomes the third most populous nation.

West Africa, especially Northern Nigeria/Chad/Niger can supply all the world’s energy requirements through solar energy. Energy production defines a production system and capabilities, and the incoming solar energy era will provide all our needs. Southern Nigeria has never suffered a famine and even in the next thousand years can’t utilize its huge forests full of wild yams and resources. This is why the new civilizational change will evolve from Nigeria. .

According to genetics, Humanity and later civilization evolved in Southern Nigeria mangrove rainforests in an environment of abundance that resulted in a loose natural Yoruba Orisha/ Igbo Agbara philosophical foundations. Picking wild Yams and all that nature had to offer, humanity spread out across the world with an appreciation of their environments that became spiritual science.

This way of life spread out of Ethiopia into Arabia and along the Southern coasts of Asia to China. However, the first set of migrants out of Africa either didn’t have the full civilizational tools or most probably were conditioned by harsh Central Asian mountain range, where they hid to survive after the Indonesian super eruption that provoked a new Ice and barren Age. During the tens of thousands of years, they lost not only their color but their collective reality of abundance.

After the Earth warmed up and migrants resumed their great coastal migration all the way to South China, there is evidence in places like Indus Valley Harrappan civilization that they lived in civilizations based on the concepts of abundance, without fight for resources and territorial control.

The current human civilization is believed to have evolved 12,000yrs ago in Southern Nigeria and proceeded on a reality of abundance across the world until about 2250BC when previous Asiatic migrants came down the Central Asia Mountains (Andronovo Complex) to destroy the Black civilizations in Asia, Middle East and Egypt. They came with an environmental induced philosophy of scarcity and control.

At first, in the 2000 years Age of Ogun/Iron/Aries, it was brutal force and barefaced grab for resources and the establishment of territorial control with Ogun tools of bows, arrows and horse chariots. However, their territories gained by brute force grew too big to be controlled with barefaced force, so they had to evolve a unifying creed, philosophy or religion that disguised their economics of scaricy and necessity.

This was brought by rhe following Age of Olokun/Pisces, (1AD to present day), the era of religious and political dogma, used to explain their civilization based on scarcity of their arid and freezing homelands. The template was provided by Jews that produced in their first five books that essentially was a narrative of Whites origins to collective aspirations.

It had been first compiled during in slavery in Babylon/Iraq but became globally highlighted by Jews that returned to Egypt, especially Alexandria. The Greeks ruling Egypt at the time saw its use and were able to culturally colonized Ethiopia monarchy next door without fighting a war.

So when Romans took over the regional power, to unify its empire with a creed, they adopted the Jewish books and put together the book called Bible, which gave a collective narrative, the tax and moral codes. This enabled them to leave the cultural shadow of Black ancient Egypt, the source of their civilization. The Christian civilizational tool in form of the Bible and the Spatha (the Great Sword) was used to place majority of Europe on a philosophy of scarcity.

The Christian civilizational perspective of religious dogma for economic resources was later challenged by the Afroasians who saw that the economic benefits favored the White Europeans far more than the mixed North Africans.

Therefore since West African gold and North African corn were the main economic resources on which Roman Catholic Empire was based, Afroasians created Islam and the first place they swept through was Egypt into Sahel West Africa to take control of the gold trade routes and the North African corn that supplied two thirds of Rome food supply.

This eventually led to the collapse of Rome Empire and Afroasian Muslims ruling parts of Europe up to Paris for 500yrs, as well as spreading to Pakistan and Southern Asia. The Afroasians not only ruled, based on our Gold but by deciphering Original African civilizational knowledge banks, the technology which they used and passed onto Europe and across the Islamic world. This is why their first university was in Timbuktu and not Mecca.

The European 1270 invention of the gun by converting the ceremonial Chinese fireworks into gun powder, enabled them to push out the Afroasians and takeover Ceuta Morocco in 1415. The Abrahamic civilizational dogma based on the scarcity of the environment, in which they evolved, after being ejected from Eden, was to be effected and infected on the true Eden, the Original African civilization based on abundance.

The squeezing of Afroasians from Senegambia into the Black heartland of what later became Nigeria, and the supply of guns for slaves by Europeans on our coasts and riverbanks, led to Original African civilizations developing Pan-Tribal groups and environments, not based on economics but protection and aggression in the militarized zone.

The battle of religious dogma between the competing Abrahamic religions was not effective in West Africa and was to be replaced by fraudulent political philosophies developed in the struggle of European monarchs, slave traders and their intellectuals.

The first was the 1520 breakup of the Roman Catholic civilization by Britain and France Protestants, who fought against the Treaty of Tordesillas issued by the Pope Alexander in 1494 allocating West Africa to Portugal, evolved into competing religions.

Also, in addition to the clash over economic resources between the cultural leadership in Rome, the headquarters and of the English and French, there was also a localized clash over economic resources between the monarchs and the slave traders, resulting in the 1680 beheading of the English monarch and the takeover of the Bank of England by the slavetraders.

The continued divisions over 250yrs cycles within the scarcity based civilizations eventually extended to the 1770 break of USA from the apron strings of Great Britain based on economic considerations of taxation and control of the large slave populations on the acquired territories. Without a monarch to tie a new religious sect, the Europeans in USA resorted to political philosophies to disguise their economic fundamentals of their foundations.

Starting with the cultural plagiarism of African spiritual sciences into modern sciences, like Cotton Maher that converted Soponna into vaccination in his book Christian Philosopher: Adam Smith, the father of economics, explained away the wealth of African nations as those of the Western civilization. Oxbridge and US Ivy league scholars propounded theories based on civilizational scarcity.

The warped civilizational perspective of scarcity pushed the concept of nationstates, democracy, patriotism and constant war for resources. This inspired a military industrial complex that took over popular sovereignty in the Western nations, turning them into totalitarian democracies. The failure of the political philosophers to resolve the economics and issues of racist capitalism in the infamous Three Fifths Compromise of 1787, whereby an African was regarded three fifths of an human in their constitution is what is rocking the US democracy today.

However, this global perspective of scarcity, Might is Right and rule of the mob is unsustainable and will be challenged naturally as the ancient population centers and civilizations gain back their populations decimated in the brutal wars for resources over the last 4000yrs. Unfortunately or fortunately, the Western civilization is facing a decline in population and threat of losing its cultural identity, so they can’t stop the natural evolution of our global consciousness and change in civilizations.

The most important issue for the Western civilization is the boom and bust economic cycle based on war and rebuilding has finally reached an end, and it is bound for bankruptcy. The Western economy has been pushed by government through war using taxpayers money to develop the next level of societal beneficial development.

The government uses taxes to build infrastructure which are used for War – World War 1 for armored vehicles that became cars/ radar for radios/tv, World War 2 for fighter Jets to passenger air travel, the cold war with Russia for computers and internet. Now, the next stage of war is artificial intelligence and drones whose Peace dividend and returns of investment can’t be monopolized away from China and other nations. So the war for prosperity cycle has come to an end.

Nigeria will grow to be the third most populous nation in the world and digital business and solar energy will make it one of the global multi-regional power centers. However, Nigerians have to break away from the European civilizational hangovers of nationstates and territories. Instead it must return to cultural linkages and the concept of natural laws of retributive justice, which will transform into a loose continentwide confederacy.

Once Nigeria restructures away from Central control into a loose confederation of ethnicities and citystates as it used to be, it will propel global economic ascendancy. But it must defeat the Afroasiatic and European civilization templates in use and go back to its Original African civilization based in abundance, not scarcity and overwhelming control.

One legged Nigeria: Generational curse or Social Reproduction Theory

The world was made in twos. Duality gives structure Balance. Checks and balance. The greatest problem we have in Nigeria is the lack of a counterbalance to Northern power bloc, so we stand on only one leg that makes the Nigerian polity unstable, unjust and perambulating.

Some will argue that it is the 1999 constitution that needs restructuring, but fail to see that if there was a South and Middlebelt powerbase, the constitution won’t be skewed in favor of the North whereby we have to practically beg them to acquiesce to restructuring. We have had about 4 constitutions, an unsuccessful Biafra secessionist war, different military governments, but Nigeria of my parents is worse than that of my generation and the prospect for future generations doesn’t look promising. Pastors say it is a generational curse, so we pray, fast and hand over the reins of power to a conservative Muslim and pentecostal Pastor, but still no joy.

Instead of continuing to perambulate on the same spot like Fela Kuti observed, we must look at the Social Reproduction Theory, from Karl Marx to Pierre Bourdieu, that analyzes the reasons that make us pass down failure from generation to generation, usually due to the absence or presence of some institutionalized social constructs that robs us of the social capital to improve. The theory identifies various forms of capital necessary to boost the collective social capital which includes financial, cultural, human and administrative capital. The lack of any of these capital creates a defect which is continuously reproduced in future generations.

The theory originally concentrated on the economic relationship from the individual to the group level, whereby Blacks in Diaspora and women continue to pass socioeconomic failures down generations. However, it is also applicable on a macro, global level, specifically to the Black Race and its thousands of tribes of which none has been able to become industrialized or gain global racial parity. Basically, we the majority in Nigeria, the Black heartland, lack the social and political capital to push for restructuring or any collective aspiration that can give us true economic and political freedom and justice. We won’t gain a full understanding of the root causes of our perambulation if we start analyzing from the constitutional phase of Nnamdi Azikwe, Obafemi Awolowo and our other founding fathers to the 1999 constitution and 2014 Confab sovereignty conference.

If we restrict our study to the last century, we would be ignoring the slavery, colonization and neocolonization that robbed us of our financial capital, which in turn robbed us of the ability to defend our cultural capital. We would also skip the fact that the human capital in form of the educational system that produced our founding fathers, the constitutions, Civil War and today’s money politics under a Northern hegemony. We would be overlooking the administrative capital deficit caused by the wrong unfair demarcations into Northern and Southern Protectorates and the further administrative violence of cutting the South into West and Eastern regions to split the social capital of the two largest Original African groups, Yoruba and Igbo. Ultimately we can see the defects in the various capital that deprives us of social capital to build a South and Middlebelt powerbase to achieve our collective aspirations.

The most important of the different forms of capital is the cultural capital which is inherent and which must be traced to our genetic and cultural foundations. Fundamentally there are two cultural categories based on linguistics and genetics, namely Original (Indigenous) Africans that speak the Niger-Congo ethnolinguistic languages, and Afroasians that speak Afroasiatic languages or have significant Asiatic traces in their DNA composition.

Though all Original Africans share common genetic and cultural origins, and are roughly 70% of the population in Nigeria and across Africa, they don’t have the social and cultural capital of Afroasians, who are products of different waves of cultural imperialism but unified in Afroasiatic Abrahamic dogma – Islam in West Africa, Christianity in Ethiopia.

To trace the devaluation of Original African social capital, we have to go back to at least the 1415 capture of Ceuta Morocco by Europeans, which culminated in the pressure on Senegambia Afroasians to spread westward into present day Nigeria. The 1400s influx of Afroasians and their Abrahamic imperialism resulted in the militarization of our subregion, especially with the European inspired arms race for slaves, which created an environment of Pan-tribalism and the breakup of the Original African civilization into kingdoms and empires in a race to protect their own.

The Afroasians Abrahamic cultural capital and genetic linkage with the European colonists was used as sociopolitical capital to have the demarcation of Protectorates favorably skewed to the Northern Afroasiatic Caliphate by adding Original African territory, the Middlebelt, that belonged to the Southern protectorate to the North. To further devalue Original African cultural and social capital, the British later split the Southern protectorate into West and East regions to allow a divide and rule policy.

To permanentize our defective social reproduction, they used our educational system, religion and media to confuse our cultural and genetic origins. They promoted a defeatist and divisive Waka Alone tribal history that the different tribes were all chased seperately out of Middleast power centers into the obscurity of the rainforest, which was a false history designed to prevent the unity of Original Africans that spoke a mere continuum of dialects of a civilization that spread from Southern Nigeria to Southern Africa.

Essentially, the Original African cultural identity hierarchy is missing one key level that would combine all our tribal capital to empower us to maximize our Original African cultural capital. From the single family unit, we can identify as a clan, then a tribe but not our civilizational identity required to strike strategic alliances within us to form a powerbase.

The Black Power movement started in the Americas combined the cultural capital of the Black Race to fight for freedom. Nnamdi Azikwe, Kwame Nkrumah, the apostles of Pan Africanism, saw the need for a wider unity sphere than tribal to fight global White imperialism and supremacy. It worked temporarily but the fact that Black African social capital was divided into two, with the Afroasian social capital unfairly overvalued by the global colonists over Original African cultural capital, ensured that failures from slavery through colonization was to be passed on in the present mode of neocolonization.

Despite the well articulated constitution at independence, the debasement and splintering of Original African cultural capital led to Azikwe being unable to strike strategic alliances within his own Original African civilizational cultural sphere, and ended up partnering and strengthening the Northern Afroasiatic hegemony. Awolowo that started with the cultural capital of Egbe Omo Oduduwa tried unsuccessfully to combine enough Kwararafa Middlebelt capital to increase the social capital to build an Original African powerbase.

At the time there was no genetic and cultural anthropological evidence to cement the Original African cultural capital, and there is still an ongoing conspiracy to prevent the acknowledgement and propagation of DNA evidence that precisely highlight our common origins and cultural origins. Without the cultural and social capital to build our powerbase, there is no way we can achieve a fair restructured constitution nor strive for separatism, so we need to go back and assess the full range of capital.

First is the denied access to our financial capital which could be used to improve our cultural and social capital. Financial capital can be viewed as the money used to acquire media outlets, influence public discourse and policy. It is no coincidence that Yorubas collective financial capital, in the form of Lagos the Yoruba citystate and cash cow, has been hijacked by personal and external predatory interests. The lack of our financial capital also prevented us from gaining social capital to fight for the full revelation of the necessary genetic anthropological evidence in the global human genome projects to help our cultural and human capital.

Fortunately, we now have enough cultural and genetic anthropological evidence to combine our cultural capital and we have our paramount monarchs working to articulate, highlight and unify the Original African cultural capital. Sociopolitical actors agitating for a fairer restructured constitution and administrative capital have realized the need to pool the political capital of the South and Middlebelt four regions, exemplified in the South and Middlebelt leadership alliance. To strengthen the political alliance into a veritable powerbase will require the cultural capital of the Original African civilization. The African Sociocultural Harmony and Enlightenment Foundation, ASHE Foundation, was established as a cultural thinktank to increase collective intelligence and cultural capital of the Original African civilization towards an epistemic democracy.

For Nigeria to be a stable polity, it needs an Original African South and Middlebelt powerbase to act as a counterbalance to the Northern powerbase. In the alliance that evolved for the 2014 Confab, the Middlebelt made it clear that it is not in the interest of its landlocked territory, peopled with hundreds of ethnic groups, to seek separatism that would result in decades of war or leave it subjugated to the Afroasiatic North. This is similar to the Niger Delta minorities position that don’t want to be subjugated in an Igbo dominated Biafra or Yoruba dominated Odua.

Therefore, the only workable alliance is based on restructuring. With the demographics, the Middlebelt would be the swing states like those of the United States that prevent regional hegemony and would work towards fulfilling our manifest destiny as Original Africans seeking racial parity – culturally, economically and politically.

Finally, those seeking separate states fail to understand the full ramifications of global White supremacy and neocolonization, nor the fact that the world is divided into giant trade blocs based on culture, which only Nigeria, the biggest Black conglomerate can afford to compete. This is why no other Black nation is an economic, cultural or political success.

Nigeria is the only hope for the Black Race and once splintered, the Black Race would be doomed forever. Nigeria is definitely not our final destination but it is a starting point to accumulate all Black social capital towards a restructured Africa whereby every ethnicity is assured of its self determination and control over their culture and resources.

An Ife-Kwararafa spirit essential to global Black ascendancy

The greatest mental blockage of an Original African is the definition of his identity by foreign cultural platforms.

Yoruba, the word that defines the largest original African group, is an Afro-Arabic word. The Yoruba word for Black, Dudu, has been equated to excreta in English.

Jukun is an Hausa word meaning person, while the great multicultural empire, Kwararafa was a Hausa collective term for a coalition of Original African ethnicities that extended from Cross River to Southern Kaduna.

The Kwararafa peoples united under the cultural and spiritual leadership of the Aku Uka of Wukari, to challenge the advance of Islamic imperialists and slavery raids by attacking Zaria, Kano, Katsina and Bornu Islamic citystates.

Before the advent of Afro-Asiatic cultural platforms, Black Africans shared the same cultural foundations and identity.

The world’s first family evolved in the Ife Forest Reserves, as those now labelled Yoruba diverged into Igala, who diverged into Nupe, Igbo and Idoma to form the Volta-Niger linguistic family, whose social organization was articulated by the same Original African information retrieval system aka Afa-Ifa-Iha-Efa.

Over time around the Niger and Benue Rivers confluence, the original Africans cultural melting pot evolved into the Benue-Congo ethnolinguistic family. Jukun, whose Original African name is Apa, is a combination of the Yoruba, Igala, Idoma, Nupe, Igbo and others during the Nok civilization.

This lingua franca, the Jukuniod family that covered Cross River to Southern Kaduna and Bornu, spread up the Benue River into Cameroon to form the Beti-Pahuin family, then down River Sangha through Gabon into Ugbangi-Kongo River basins, to spread to the Rift Valley area, where they became the Marshariki Bantus that spread throughout East and Southern Africa.

The Original African cultural platform that spread out of Ife and the Southern rainforests into Nok grassland civilization continued to Lake Chad’s Sao civilization that connected to the Lower Nile civilizations of Egypt and Ethiopia into Southern Asia.

However, original African geopolitical experience changed from around 2000BC when Euro-Asians came out of the Central Asian mountains caves with metal weapons to overwhelm and rollback Original African cultural platforms through Egypt down to Lake Chad Sao civilization.

The Sao civilization of the Sara people, overwhelmed by the influx of Northern Berber immigrants, withered and transformed into the Kanem, which later expanded further to the west of Lake Chad into Bornu empire, forcing Original Africans southwards.

The insidious advance of Afro-Asian cultural imperialism that destroyed and obscured Original African cultural and sociopolitical structures was a slow process best highlighted with 250yr Oya trends.

Arabic cultural imperialism starts with a mosque thats created to cater to foreigners, but insidiously spreads over the first 250yrs (Bornu 750AD, Hausa 1000AD, Oyo 1500AD) after which it takes over political leadership and discards Original African institutions (Bornu 1000AD, Hausa 1250, Oyo/Ilorin 1770), then lastly leads a local brand of Islamic imperialism (Bornu 1250, Hausa/Nupe 1500, Oyo/Tinubu 2007 Northern Alliances?). Every 250yrs original African structures not well rooted and protected were blown further afield by the winds of Oya.

The primary motivation for the Afro-Asiatic imperialists is economic – Original African resources and slaves. Starting from a single mosque, overlooked due to the traditional Original African tenets of freedom of worship, Afro-Arabic cultural imperialism spreads till it reaches a critical mass of the population that can be influenced with moralist propaganda to overthrow the true leadership.

The Afro-Asiatic influences were to infiltrate the Northwestern population center through Daura to capture the Hausa citystates that practiced and was organized around Bori, the Original African state religion.

This is captured in the Bayajidda myth whereby the Sakin, snake, is killed and the Daurama, the Hausa Bori queen is married to an Afro-Arabic conqueror.

The Original African cultural and sociopolitical leadership is demonized and a new creed is instituted against cultural norms, rights and liberties painted as evil. The original African history is whitewashed and a new Afro-Asiatic version of history that devalues the essence of the Original African is institutionalized and imbued into the collective consciousness.

Daura, being on the Northern caravan route between Upper Niger (Mali/Songhai empires) and Bornu empire, became the source of the new Hausa Afro-Asiatic cultural identity, while Gobir to its West was the Hausa boundary citystate against Songhai. Kano was a major caravan junction, where goods from Lower and Upper Niger met, while Zaria launched slave raids into original African territories of central Nigeria.

The unconverted Hausa called the Maguzawa and other Original Africans of the former Nok civilization fled from the Islamized centers of Bornu, Kano and Katsina. The Islamists were to ransack Oyo on River Niger and Kwararafa in the Benue Valley in the early 1500s, which required new strategies to counter and stop the advance of Islamic imperialism.

The Oyo Royal court that moved to Igboho after the Nupe invasion, was to return to Oyo Ile with a more militarist approach that saw the creation of Aare Ona Kakanfo military structure and use of Calvary.

The Original Africans along the River Benue tributaries and rivers that rise from the Jos highlands to water the vast central Nigerian grasslands, collectively known as the Kwararafa, moved their capital to Wukari, a better strategic fort.

In addition to the leopard totem used across Southern and Central Nigeria, the crocodile was a totem from Adamawa to River Kaduna. The word Kaduna means crocodile.

The Benue-Congo family under the cultural leadership of Aku Uka waged war against the Islamists, but unfortunately the older Volta-Niger family lost its way with questionable alliances and waged war within itself. Oyo was to strike alliances for the supply of horses for its new cavalry army from the North, while ignoring the insidious effect of Islamic cultural imperialism within its territory.

Ooni of Ife is the spiritual leader of the Volta Benue family, as Oranmiyan an Ife Prince had set up the royal lineages of Benin and Oyo, while the Igala that diverged into Nupe and Igbo accept Yoruba linkages.

However, the cultural unity and identity of the world’s first family, the Volta-Benue ethnolinguistic family began to unravel due to growth of the sister empires, Oyo and Benin, and their questionable alliances.

The first Church was established around 1506 in Benin, the greatest rainforest Black empire, and around 1506 the first mosque was setup in Oyo, Yorubas frontier empire, resulting over the next 250yrs sociopolitical and cultural implosion.

The Benin amicable welcome of European Jesuits and traders in 1480s, took a drastic turn when demand for slaves increased with Colombus ‘discovery’ of the Americas. Though Benin expelled and banned Europeans for 100yrs, the Volta-Niger subregion was plunged into slaves for arms anarchy, which made Oyo to expand towards the sea, contesting with Dahomey, Allada, Benin and others.

Instead of Oyo Empire pushing northwards to curtail Afro-asiatic imperialists, it ignored the insidious Islamization of its territories as mosques spread to Iwo and beyond. Although Afro-Asiatic influences also took root in Kwararafa, the original African focus was to wage retaliatory attacks on foreign strongholds of the Islamists.

The neglect of the insidious Afro-Asiatic influences in Oyo led to the corruption of the Aare Ona Kakanfo military structure and the fall of Oyo to Jihadists in Oyo Ile and Ilorin. Though Yorubas briefly united to defeat and stop the advance of Fulani Jihadists around Oshogbo, Yorubas fell into greater disunity as the fight for political supremacy continued instead of retaliatory attacks against the North like the Kwararafa.

Kwararafa eventually fell and was broken apart after continuous pressure from Bornu and later Fulani Jihadists. Adamawa and the Gongola riverbasin was taken and placed under a new Fulani inspired emirate, Muri. Kwararafa also faced pressure from Tiv, new migrants from the Cameroun mountains, probably caused by the European inspired slave trade on the Calabar coast.

With hindsight, the original African heartland would have stood a better chance if the Ife Volta-Benue family had joined the Kwararafa peoples in repelling the advance of Afro-Arabic imperialism. It was the Original African alliance that prevented the Bornu Islamic empire and Fulani Jihadist from crossing river Benue to the South to create an emirate like it was done in Ilorin.

Despite Oyos military machinations and alliances with the Islamists and White colonists, it became the greatest loser of people and land, allowing the Fulani Jihadists take more original African territory in just a few centuries than Bornu could in the East over a thousand years. The Yoruba infighting led to the longest Civil War, stopped only by the British colonization.

Unfortunately, the lessons have not been learnt in the new British colonial design, Nigeria.

The African independence movement was fought on two platforms – Pan Africanist and Pan Arabic. Though the Pan Africanist movement was made up mainly by Original Africans (Niger-Congo ethnolinguistic) groups and was more effective than the Pan Arabic movement, the Pan Africanist movement broke up with infighting among the Volta-Benue groups – Yorubas and Igbos, while the Pan Arabic group remained united and favorites of the British colonists aiming for indirect rule.

The Pan Arabic group was to win power and control Nigeria because the Original African pan Africanists that accounted for 70% didn’t have a well articulated cultural identity and platform.

The Yorubas, Edo and Igbos basically lost their original African cultural identity and need to trace their last common ancestors to Ife and unify their knowledge banks and cultural platforms. The Igalas, the Original African crossroads, must strive to unite the Yoruba, Nupe, Igbo, Idoma and Jukuns, while Jukuns, the gateway to Africa, must strive to reignite the Kwararafa spirit, especially across the Middlebelt, first by restarting the Puje, the annual celebrations of all Kwararafa monarchs.

The paramount kings must lead the movement, cultural revolution, by clearly stating our cultural origins and linkages, tallying them with genetic and other scientific evidence.

To free Original Africans from mental and cultural slavery, original African monarchs, our cultural custodians, must spell out a well articulated original African cultural platform on which politicians, economists, doctors, engineers and other professionals can build an original African perspective in their professional sphere.

The lack of an original African cultural platform has led to the waste of our traditional knowledge banks and inability to adopt foreign technologies properly. It has led to our poor work ethic,anti social attitudes and feelings of alienation in existing political systems. It is said, ‘Give me a place to stand, (a platform) and I will move the world’. This applies to every aspect of our existence although the political and economic realms are the more obvious.

An original African platform is lacking at the national negotiations table dominated by Fulani Islamists and Western colonists, because the cultural leadership and intelligentsia have failed to provide an original African platform to arm our politicians with a narrative tying origins, linkages and aspirations, in the absence of which they operate as selfish free agents.

The same appies in the medical field, where the lack of a robust Original African platform on herbs and medical procedures is absent. Also, we fall for propaganda and mental slavery because we don’t understand the original African concept on information confused with the wrong equation with Esu and Devil.

So the Ooni, Obi, Attah, Jaja, Aku Uka, Ochi’Idoma and others need to come together as fathers of our cultural identities and teach us the truth of our cultural origins and linkages, instead of leaving us to be labelled by jaundiced foreign perspectives as bastards, Banza Bakwai, Niggers or whatever name given to those who lack home training of their culture.

This spirit of cultural information, unity and direction is aptly known as the Ife Kwararafa spirit. This is the spirit that will take over the destiny of Nigeria and the Black Race and steer us to global Black ascendancy.

Charity they say begins at home.
