Nigerian separatists: for lack of knowledge, a people will perish – Prince Faloye
Western Europe is made up of two tribes – Germanic and Latin, (or 3 if you count Greek), but divided into 25 countries. What the Nigerian separatists use as examples of languages separated into nations if applied to Yoruba or Igbo lands will lead them to divide up to 4 or more nations. Yes, the current state of Nigeria is unfair and unbearable, but there are ways forward by returning to our civilizational mode of the city state in a modern format of a self-determined ethnic confederation. continent-wide – a model that guarantees justice and peace for all.
Calls for justice are not limited to Nigeria, but around the world, including the United States and the United Kingdom, people are calling for more just systems in what is essentially the Axis Era before the change of 2000 year civilization and global consciousness change. 2,000 years ago, the Roman Republic erupted in 23AD and united in 27AD as the Roman Empire to start a new global era of white supremacy in what is known as the Age of Pisces / Olokun, a religious and political dogma that promotes selective justice. Currently, we are undergoing the same mental conditioning of the Universe to raise our global consciousness to that of Justice, the Age of Justice / Shango, through which the Black Race will rise to achieve global racial parity.
The question is whether we should go to war and breaking up to come together to achieve a change of civilization just in our favor like the Romans, or to apply ancient wisdom. Europeans rose in the Age of Ogun and therefore are more inclined to achieve collective goals, while the black race rose at least 8,000 years earlier in the Age of Orumila / Leo signified by wisdom and creativity.
However, the poor upbringing and cultural disorientation of the black race can prevent them from raising a higher global consciousness. It is ironic because the two previous civilizational axial ages were based on original African values. The Axial Age leading up to the Iron Age (2000BC to 1AD) was initiated by black Africans developing metallurgy, smelting iron for iron tools, but adopted as weapons by whites in what is known as the first biblical apocalyptic horseman, with bows and arrows used to overwhelm black civilizations in Asia and North Africa. The next Axial Age leading up to the Olokun / Pisces Outgoing Age was also the conversion of black ancestor worship and African spiritual sciences into Greco-Roman philosophical foundations and Abrahamic religions. Now, the current axial era leading to the next level of world consciousness, the era of justice, has also been initiated and fought by enslaved Africans in the Americas, where it has become imperative to craft a constitution spelling out the rights and limitations.
Just as the religions of the past 2,000 years, especially Abrahamic Judeo-Christian-Islamic, distort the world’s first religion, Ifa-Afa-Iha-Eha-Fa, the true aspirations of black justice are distorted in constitutions. This is why, at the dawn of ages, we have African Americans who challenge the American constitution which initially considered them three-fifths of a human, and still treat them as such, as we have Nigerians who call to the restructuring of the constitution or totally torn up to rupture. the nation.
The world is based on huge trading blocs like the United States and China which allow them to produce at the lowest unit cost and with a huge domestic market. Nigeria, the largest conglomerate of blacks, is the hope of the Black Race, as the United States is for whites and China for Asians. It includes the two largest African groups of origin, Yoruba and Igbos, and the largest Afro-Asian groups, Hausa-Fulani, which has the advantage of allowing the two largest African groups of origin bringing together the most African groups. originals, to challenge unfair abusive Afro-Asian civilizations. Unfortunately, the poor education and civilizational illiteracy of the Africans of origin prevent them from having a collective vision not based on Abrahamic civilizations. They claim their own nation-states conceptualized by the Europeans or the caliphates conceptualized by the Arabs, not realizing that these concepts are of a territorial imperialist nature focused on the exploitation of the land, as opposed to the original African civilization based on cultural ties. You can divide the land into territories based on resources, but it is almost impossible to divide the continuum of dialects into perfect territories, which is why Africa has been carved into territories that had and still do not have respect for people. Africa remains the land to harness human and natural resources, not to make the environment work for people.
Therefore, the Yoruba and Igbo separatists calling for European-style nation states would destroy the very fabric of their ethnicity being protected from Afro-Asian and European cultural imperialism. It is easier to understand that copying the European Ogun, Ajagunbade mode will lead to further balkanization, and not the unity of their people. In fact, some will argue that there has never been a Yoruba or Igbo identity, and they are the creation of our colonizers to promote Pan-Tribalism which divides and blinds us to our civilizational power.
Just like in Nigeria, the universe conspired to make minority groups rich in resources, so there would be a problem in Odua when the Ondo / Ekiti states which form one-third of the population but two-thirds of the natural resources, and in ask for more. representation or their own nation-state where they can benefit 100% of their resources. Yoruba is essentially the Oyo Empire dialect made popular in so-called Yorubaland by the British. In the past, politically, the Yoruba were divided between the Oyo and Edo empires. The latest attempt by Oyo Empire to unite the two Yoruba groups led to the longest civil war in Yoruba history.
A similar situation will occur with Nri Igbos of Anambra / Enugu, the Igbo Deltans who were under the Edo Empire and the Igbos of southern Arochukwu. Unless the most populous regions also have the most important resources, minorities will not attempt to manage themselves. The proposition that Ibadan will be the capital and Alaafin will be the primary cultural guardian, will define as unacceptable for the states of Ondo and Ekiti who would prefer Ife and Ooni. While Alaafin gained prominence thanks to the territorial wars that affected Ekiti Parapo, Ooni is seen as their Orisun, their source. Ife and Ekiti are the source of most Yoruba Orishas and culture, so contemplating Ibadan, a refugee camp caused by the defeat of the Yoruba by the Fulani, is not only culturally distasteful, but spiritually incorrect. We also have the oil-rich Ugbo seaside which is also fighting for Yoruba supremacy, and could very well challenge cultural supremacy, democratic and economic representation, or outright separatism.
The implications of these cultural divides are that we will wage resource allocation wars for the next hundred until we collapse into city states, at which time we will be overwhelmed by external predators of civilization that will bring us down. would prevent the creation of a strong continental confederation of self-determined ethnic groups.
That is why instead of using Ogun, we should use Osun as our common origins and Shango as our common aspirations. Unfortunately, our people follow, follow as Fela sang and they can only think within the framework of European parameters. The only silver lining is that the majority of our populations are young and could be mentally and culturally recuperated to understand their united civilizational power to restructure towards the lowest unity to do justice to every group, no matter how small. , unlike the neocolonialist avant-gardes of the 1950s. stuck in their pan-tribalist Eurocentrism. However, if we fail to properly educate young people, then we will break up, go to war, lose millions of lives, before we finally see things from a unifying civilizational perspective.
