This presentation is directed mainly at Negro Nigerians and Negroids who see themselves as Nigerians. it is also intended to bring to the notice of the leadership of Afenifere, Ohaneze Ndigbo, Middle Belt Forum (MBF) and Pan Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF) facts and events which all Nigerians must know to appreciate the true meaning of Bishop Kukah’s statement in comparing the Federal Government with Boko Haram and saying that the difference between Federal Government and the terrorists is that, terrorists use bomb to achieve their aims. See Vanguard, Sunday, January 26, 2020] In effect that the two have the same objective.
PFN President, Rev. Felix Omobude in his reply said: “We voted this government into power in what we supposed was a civilized method. And if the government is not measuring up, the people have the prerogative to voice their grievance in whatever way they can. I think that’s what Bishop Kukah has done. It’s a language of dissatisfaction with the government.” This reply suggests that PFN President did not appreciate fully the meaning of jihad, one of the tenets of Islam. Jihad has two applications (a) stealth and (b) conventional both with the same objective to subjugate the Dar-al-Harb to Sharia, which will result in the non-Muslim world being subsumed under Dar-al-Islam. While the conventional jihad is clear and straight forward, stealth jihad as practiced by institutions are not so clear.
The argument by the Federal Government, that Amotekun is illegal is stealth jihad because (a) there is no provision under the Constitution preventing individual and organizations, from protecting themselves and therefore Nigeria cannot have too much internal security. To stop Amotekun in the view of this writer, is to ensure that Nigerians have no defence when Boko Haram, Fulani herdsmen and bandits attack their homes, villages, cities, etc. General Buhari, the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces and member of the Board of Trustees of the Miyetti Allah in the battle between the Armed Forces and insurgents is in a position to decide victor and vanquished under the circumstance. It is clear that President Buhari being on both sides, Armed Forces and insurgents, makes it very difficult for the military to end insurgence and his dual portfolio as the C-in-C and member of the Miyetti Board of Trustees is permitted in stealth jihad, under Sharia but not under the Common Law principles.
Negro and Negroid Nigerians
Most Nigerians especially those of us Negros, who are also in the majority do not appreciate the two races that make up Nigeria. The Hausa/Fulani and Kanuri are Negroid Nigerians as classified by Lugard while the other over 386 others are Negros. Lugard wrote “the population of the North-described 60 years ago by Barth as the densest in all Africa-had by 1900 dwindled to some 9 million, owning to inter-tribal war, and, above all, to slave raids of the Fulani. But these dreaded horsemen could not penetrate the forests of the South, where a population estimated at 73/4 Millions (probably an over-estimate) found refuge. These tribes are of purer negro stock than the Hausas and other Negroids of the North.” [Lugard and the Amalgamation of Nigeria pg. 56]
The Negroids pretend to be superior race especially when Sir Ahmadu Bello, son of one-time Sultan of Sokoto traced his genealogy to the prophet. [See attached marked as Annexure ‘A’]. “The Sardauna felt he had more in common with the English than with his fellow Nigerians from the South of the country.” [Ghosts of Empire Kwasi Kwarteng pg. 300] Meanwhile the Kanuri who are of Arab descent derived authority from the Sultan of Sokoto.
This explains why most Negroid Muslims in Nigeria and indeed Africa trace their origins to Arabs and the Prophet Mohammed. And with the tenet of sacred space, they want to ensure that the whole of Negro Africa, East, West and South are subjugated by Dar-al-Islam – Negroids of Arab descent.
Amalgamation of 1914
It is clear from our findings that amalgamation of 1914 was more to save the North from the French, in addition to relieving the British of grant-in-aid to the North and the construction of railway in the North. A.H.M. Kirk-Greene wrote “Lugard’s own appreciation of the situation in the Report, where he summarizes the ‘necessity for amalgamation’ under the two headings of finance and railways. Not only had the Northern Protectorate been running at a substantial operating loss-in itself a direct contradiction of one of the traditional British colonial maxims, that every territory must be self-supporting-but its treasury had been subvented by heavy grants-in-aid from both Great Britain and the Southern Protectorate, at the very time when the prosperity of the South was increasing rapidly thanks to the high duties imposed on liquor imports, especially ‘square face’ or trade gin. Such a source of revenue was unknown to the Moslem North. Ironically, as Crowder observes, the much vaunted Northern line from Baro to Minna was built with funds diverted from the revenue of the Southern Protectorate.” [pg. 29] The importance of liquor which the Negroids say they do not consume is very relevant in today’s Nigeria.
Lord Harcourt, on the other hand, while making a case in the British Parliament why he had to recall Lugard from Hong Kong to make him Governor-General of the two Nigerias gave the following as reasons:
- To obliterate Artificial territorial boundaries between the two Nigerias
- To unify the different methods of governances; and
- To stop the inevitable rivalries between the natives and more so between the expatriate British colonial officers in the two countries.
Kirk-Greene wrote “one is reminded of the quip about the mutual hostility and regional loyalty of the Administrative staff of the Northern and Southern Provinces up to 1939: if all Nigerians had withdrawn from the country, there would have been a civil war between the two groups of Europeans.” [pg. 37]
Unfortunately, till this day, 2020 – 106 years after amalgamation, more artificial boundaries have been created – North – South, six zones and the Nigerian Negroids justify North and South but not the six zones. Muslim Negroids are at war (stealth and conventional jihad) with other Negros and Negroids who are not of Arab descent.
Two books on this subject among others that guided NCEF on the question of stealth jihad are
- Stealth Jihad: How Radical Islam is Subverting America without Guns or Bombs by Robert Spencer; and
- Stealth Invasion: Muslim conquest through migration and resettlement jihad. The two books explain the meaning of stealth Jihad which the Islamists in government, Boko Haram, Fulani Herdsmen, and Bandits have been inflicting on other Nigerians since Amalgamation and much more so after the overthrow of General Gowon in 1975.
Rev. Omobude was asked in the same interview: “Do you agree with the school of thought that the increasing wave of insecurity is part of the plan to Islamize the country?
And he replied: “I think that people over-emphasize this Islamization thing as if the Church is weak or afraid and lacks capacity. That’s not the case. The Church is not sleeping. Muslims have a right to evangelize if they will do it peacefully, just as Christians have a right to do the same and we are doing that in our own way. Let me remind you that many attempts have been made in the past and to some extent they didn’t yield the fruits that the enemies expected. While I will not ask the Church to go to sleep, we should not have sleepless nights over Islamophobia (explained as the fear, hatred of, or prejudice against the Islamic religion or Muslims generally - Wikipedia). I don’t think that that day is soon if it will ever come. The Church is not sleeping. We are still working, praying because Nigeria belongs to all of us. In this country, OIC came and people thought that overnight it would bring a cloud over us. Then Sharia came; even when we cannot claim total victory yet, those who are enemies of the Church know it is not a walkover in Nigeria.” Vanguard, Sunday, January 26, 2020] Omobude’s use of the word Islamophobia is unfortunate for a Christian leader in a country afflicted with Boko Haram, Fulani herdsmen and a Government adept in stealth jihad.
The NCEF agree that it will be difficult to completely Islamize Nigeria in the 21st Century. What is disturbing however, is that Christians especially the Pastors who see themselves as Christ’s Apostles are conditioned in the spirit of the old testament, which provides some similarity between Christianity/Islam and in the process behave like the Jews before the holocaust who “did not want to know” when told about the impending holocaust. Yesterday, Monday, January 26, 2020, the world celebrated 75 years of liberation of mankind. About 1.1 million people mainly Jews were murdered at Auschwitz - Birkenau during the holocaust.
Christians are being told that amalgamation, independence etc have components of Jihad (Stealth and Conventional) but some Pastors do not want to know because of security vote which itself is stealth jihad. In addition to amalgamation and independence, the boundaries of the regions that ignored the National boundary provided by River Niger and Benue were stealth jihad. Others included the Independent Constitution 1960 and subsequent Constitutions with respect to composition of the nation and regional Parliaments. The Executive particularly the Intelligence Community dominated by Muslims constitute stealth jihad. Various Hausa and Ibo riots, which culminated in the Civil war of 1967-1970, were contrived especially when Christians fought one another to keep Nigeria one only for the Negroids to claim victory after the Christian Negros (Nd’igbo) have been vanquished. The change in the Constitution from Parliamentary Democracy to a Presidential Constitution is stealth jihad. The refusal of President Buhari to sign the Bills dealing with Petroleum and Elections into law is stealth jihad. Jumbo pay for president, governors and parliamentarians is stealth jihad. The removal of former CJN Onnoghen, a Negro, and replacement by Tanko Abubakar a Negroid is stealth jihad, Police working hand in hand with fake Police as pronounced by the Inspector General of Police (I.G.P.) constitute stealth jihad, Community Policing as opposed to State, Local Government Police establishment is stealth jihad. The declaration of the AGF that Amotekun is unconstitutional is stealth jihad, intended to expose the under-belly of Negros. Boko Haram and Fulani herdsmen are undertaking conventional jihad and succeeding without any resistance, especially when Police establishment everywhere in the world are not centralized. The NCEF can go on and on, but what is important now is how best to remedy the “Accident” of 1914 to provide for the black race (Negro) throughout Africa and the world, countries where “though tribes and tongues may differ in brotherhood we stand.”
This presentation is intended to warn Nigerians especially the Negroids that all attempts is to create a caliphate in Nigeria or in the world are not feasible and that the Nigerian with a bomb in his pant did not succeed in bringing down the plane in which he was travelling. The Nigerian who attacked Army Barracks and killed one British soldier is now languishing in prison. The Caliphate established by jihad some five years ago in parts of Syria and Iraq as large as the British Isles is no more in the world map. Islamists who want to establish a Caliphate in Nigeria need to be advised that Nigeria as a country which the British established since amalgamation in 1914 was one in which “everyman should be free to worship God as he chose” remains the norm.
In other parts of the world, the Negros have been made slaves and colonized since the 14th or 15th century. Today, Nigeria is experiencing the worst form of colonialism because Negro Nigerians are paying for their subjugation by Dal-al-Islam. Dele Sobowale wrote in the Vanguard, Sunday, January 26, 2020: “Zamfara is one of the northern states which are parasites on southern states. Close to 90 per cent of the state’s revenue is derived from federal allocations – meaning from oil-producing Niger Delta states and Lagos. We drink beer in Lagos and pay Value Added Tax, VAT. But because of Sharia, beer drinking is forbidden in Zamfara. Yet, they collect their share of beer-VAT money (bloody hypocrites that they are) and apply it to build Hajj Camp instead of taking care of their people and reducing poverty. Can any person tell Nigerians how renovating emirs palaces, building new Hajj Camp and spending N7 billion on a new Government House will reduce Zamfara’s contribution to the Misery Index – illiteracy, maternal and child mortality, unemployment, poor housing, poor health facilities, death traps called roads and absence of potable water supply?” [Federal allocation to Zamfara and others without contribution constitute stealth jihad], he continues,
“Southerners are forced to labor only to observe that revenue from our collective effort going North to be wasted by governors – PDP or APC – whose sense of priority is shocking. If they are not creating unnecessary tension in their states, resulting in fund being spent on advertorials to defend the indefensible, they are boldly throwing the funds they have not generated into sh*t holes up North.
How on earth can Nigeria develop with so many northern states holding back development in the South?” [Vanguard, Sunday, January 26, 2020]
Negros in Nigeria must not continue to pay Negroid Nigerians of Arab descent that are presently forcing Negros out of Nigeria and importing almajiri Arabs. Enough is enough especially when this is done with the aid of Nigeria Negros who should know better and who style themselves as educated followers of Christ – Christians. As Nigerians, we all, Negros and Negroids need to establish one country with one system good for the black man without recrimination.
