What are we still doing with the brainwashing education we inherited from Britain and France? When are we going to get rid of this model of education?
A lot of prophets had been sent to set us free; Marcus Garvey, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, Lord Kwame Nkrumah, Bob Marley. Yet we listened to none.
Within a short while, the “Obi of Onitsha” has been visited by a European football club who even rewarded him with a jersey. And also recently, a British delegation paid him a visit. I have no issues with the visits in principle, but I would point out later what similar visits did to Africa in the past.
There’s something Britain is scheming that you don’t know. It has to do with a long-term strategy for re-colonizing their former colonies after exiting the European Union. That's the only way they can survive outside of the European Union!. This would only sound strange to you if you don't understand history or you're one of those who has fallen for the western hypnosis of Africa and the iron curtain over us- something we're unable to completely free ourselves since the 1400's.
Western solicitation of the loyalty and favor of African kings/ traditional rulers is not new. That’s actually how slavery began. Slavery began when European colonial forces began baiting African kings with gifts; wine, beads, mirror, e.t.c. There was a reason for the gifts. The gifts were meant to buy the loyalty of our kings!!.
Ephesians 6 5:8 New International Version.
Slaves, obey your earthly masters with respect and fear, and with sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ. Obey them not only to win their favor when their eye is on you, but as slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from your heart. Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not people, because you know that the Lord will reward each one for whatever good they do, whether they are slave or free.
1 Corinthians 7:20:22 New International Version.
Each person should remain in the situation they were in when God called them. Were you a slave when you were called? Don’t let it trouble you- although if you can gain your freedom, do so. For the one who was a slave when called to faith in the Lord is the Lord’s freed person; similarly, the one who was free when called is Christ’s slave.
Colossians 3 22:25 New International Version.
Slaves, obey your earthly masters in everything; and do it, not only when their eye is on you and to curry their favor, but with sincerity of heart and reverence for the Lord. Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. Anyone who does wrong will be repaid for their wrongs, and there is no favoritism.
1 Peter 2 18:20 New International Version.
Slaves, in reverent fear of God submit yourselves to your masters, not only to those who are good and considerate, but also to those who are harsh. For it is commendable if someone bears up under the pain of unjust suffering because they are conscious of God. But how is it to your credit if you receive a beating for doing wrong and endure it? But if you suffer for doing good and you endure it, this is commendable before God.
Where on earth did they practice this democracy they talk about? It took black lives and blood to beat them to shape to comprehend the concept of democracy!!.
Queen Mertyt-Neith was Female Pharaoh during the 1st Dynasty of Egyptian monarchy- 3000 BC.
Queen Khentkaus was Female Pharaoh during the 4th Dynasty of Egyptian monarchy- 2613-2494 BC.
Queen Ankhnesmeryre II was Female Pharaoh during the 6th Dynasty of Egyptian monarchy- 2345–2181 BC.
Queen Neithhikret was also a Female Pharaoh during the 6th Dynasty of Egyptian monarchy- 2148-2144 BC.

This was thousands of years when the British monarchy has not even begun!!. The concept of democracy, man, and woman being equal in ancient Egypt (Africa) was so shocking to Herodotus (a Greek historian) when he visited Egypt in 450 BC. He was so surprised about democracy in Egypt that he noted: “Egyptians have reversed the ordinary practices of mankind”. He was surprised because at that time Europe was still in total darkness, even till the 1920's women were not allowed to vote in Britain or own property in other parts of Europe.
Their animal mindset echoed across the ocean. In America, former US president, Thomas Jefferson, in a note to the state of Virginia in the late 1700s said “I advance it therefore as a suspicion only, that the blacks, whether originally a distinct race, or made distinct by time and circumstances, are inferior to the whites in the endowments both of body and mind. It is not against experience to suppose, that different species of the same genus, or varieties of the same species, may possess different qualifications. Will not a lover of natural history then, one who views the gradations in all the races of animals with the eye of philosophy, excuse an effort to keep those in the department of man as distinct as nature has formed them? This unfortunate difference of colour, and perhaps of faculty, is a powerful obstacle to the emancipation of these people. Many of their advocates, while they wish to vindicate the liberty of human nature, are anxious also to preserve its dignity and beauty. Some of these, embarrassed by the question "What further is to be done with them?" join themselves in opposition with those who are actuated by sordid avarice only. Among the Romans emancipation required but one effort. The slave, when made free, might mix with, without staining the blood of his master. But with us a second is necessary, unknown to history. When freed, he is to be removed beyond the reach of mixture".
Thomas Jefferson made the idea of white supremacism look cool and he inspired white supremacists all over the world. He singlehandedly enshrined superiority complex in the consciousness of white people in America starting in the mid-1700s.
Note that king Prempeh did not owe Britain any gold as he didn’t have any business with them; rather, the British heard his official seat was made of real gold, they got jealous and wanted some of the gold. When Prempeh refused to give them gold, they threatened him to provide gold or have his kingdom invaded. The king under fear of exile signed he would provide the gold, but he didn’t have all of the gold at once.
In 1891, the British dethroned and exiled king Waiyaki Wa Hinga. King Waiyaki had earlier made an agreement with the British to allow them to settle peacefully in his land. As usual, the British reneged from the agreement a few months later and wanted everything in his kingdom including his seat. A fight ensued and they hit king Waiyaki with (simi) dagger on his head and planned to take him to court for prosecution. On the way to the court, they changed their mind and decided to bury him alive instead. Till today, nobody knows where they buried him.
In 1835, the British captured and beheaded king Hintsa in South Africa. He was of the Xhosa tribe. The queen of England asked that his skull be brought to her palace in London, and it was done. Till today, nobody knows where they buried him or where his skull is.
How could someone have 175 slaves and at the same time be saying all men are equal? What's the rationale behind this? He has to be mad to do both at the same time!!.
Your excellences, China was also partly colonized by Japan. Today, Chinese people are extremely cautious when dealing with Japan and Britain. They are so cautious that it's almost a taboo for them to marry each other. I’ am not preaching hate here, but at least China understands their past, and therefore, would not want to repeat the mistake of the past. Knowledge of history is the reason China and Japan don’t get along. Because they know what’s at stake. Like China and Japan, the same Britain that wants to get along with Africa, don't get along with their fellow European countries, because of the turbulent history they also had with others.
Your excellences, again, be informed, the first thing Britain did after regaining their freedom was they banned the speaking of all foreign languages in the entire British Isles and adopted their native English language as their official language. Yet, the same Britain forced English language down the throats of our ancestors during their occupation of our lands. What a hypocrite they are!!.
Your excellences, if Britain loved you, they'll be advising you on the importance of our native African languages to our well-being and development, and how to restore our native languages in schools and society above English language. Because that’s exactly what Britain themselves did in 1348.
If Britain loved you, they'll be telling you the relationship between native language and learning, and that there's no great nation on earth that speaks a foreign language. It is time we come out of the box and place priority on our various native languages in schools and in society.
