frica and Africans, what are you doing to yourselves? Nigeria and Nigerians, what are you doing to yourselves? Why do Africa and its peoples devalue themselves; why do we refuse to accept ourselves as equal, if not better than our adversaries? Did I say our adversaries; oh no, we are our very own adversary. We run away from our own cultural traditional knowledge, we abdicate from patronizing our home made goods, sometimes products and services. What we produce or manufacture does not attract us. The people discriminate our traditional herbal medicine; our elites also run from using our own hospitals; they run to Europe, America, and now India for their medical attention. The prevailing idea in Nigeria particularly and Africa generally is that goods or products that come from foreign lands, is better than our home made, no matter how inferior the foreign made goods are. We run-after and embrace foreign made goods, foreign culture and idea at the regret of our own superior culture, knowledge, and wisdom. Nigerians even runs from eating their own natural and purely organic food. They run to eat fast foods that are nothing but junk food with names such as fried Rice and Indome. Nigerians rush at Chinese oily foods which their ingredients are usually unknown, in Nigeria.
For example, Textile Mills in Nigeria can cloth the whole of Africa if products from them are embraced and used by Nigerians. Nigerians prefer used cloths from America and Europe to Nigerian manufactured brand new cloths, for themselves and their children. If available at all, it is very hard to find locally made children’s wears, made with Nigerian manufactured materials in most Nigerian markets, especially in Benin City, Edo State. Children’s traditional wears are not available at markets in Benin City, Edo State. I have to pay extra money to make children’s native dresses made with Nigerian fabric for my grandchildren whenever I am in Nigeria. The Textile Mills in Nigeria could have been developed to provide much needed employment for citizens and to enable Africa export their own manufactured textile materials to the outside world. Nigerian lawyers are still wearing those synthetic materials and hoods made in Europe with synthetic materials that are not suitable in the hot climate of Africa.
According to an authoritative verified opinion, today’s development in human ideas, technology, science, awareness, infrastructure, the Arts, Philosophy, Religions etc., were derived from the so called primitive ideas of the indigenous people. Africa, you have the most aged indigenous humans on our Earth with both arcane and esoteric knowledge of the Art and sciences. Leaders of Africa, did I say leaders or rulers of Africa, Africa is yearning for embrace, and understanding. African rulers do not neglect your own. Embrace your cultural and traditional knowledge or science possessed by the natives who have the ears that hear and understand the languages of the leaf of the trees, their roots and barks, plants and the seeds of the vines; in other words, those who understand the African invisible African world and are able to interact with the herbal kingdom successfully. If you prefer, call them native doctors, the witches and the wizards of Africa.
Africans, do not neglect what God has given you, find ways to use them for your own benefits and for the benefits of mankind. Nigerians, consult the “Confession of a Wizard: the Devil’s Arsenal,” a book by Dr. J. O. Mume to catch a glimpse or get an idea of the power or knowledge that can be tapped from the witches and wizards of our land. Contact the Agbekoya of Ibadan of the old Western Nigeria who caused the uniforms of 19 policemen to glue to their bodies. Any member of this group can tell the kind of knowledge or power possessed by the indigenous African native doctors. Agbekoya is a name of a group of Yoruba Farmers who had complaints against the then authorities in Ibadan, southwest of Nigeria. Agbekoya means, farmers reject sorrow or intimidation. The men of the Nigeria anti-riot mobile police force were sent to stop the Farmers’ protest during the period of “Operation weti e” in the Region. During some of the protests which were more or less political at that time, people were set ablaze after petrol had been poured on them; such actions was called “operation wet ie” in Yoruba language.
For further example of the knowledge of African Science that can be deployed for the good of society in Africa, let Africans remember the Masai and the Kikuyus of East Africa, and read about the late Jomo Kenyatta of Kenya, and the Mau Mau, an indigenous group he led in pre-colonial time in Kenya. With the un-matched African scientific activities of the Mau Mau did the British give up. According to reports and recorded history, members of the Mau Mau and their actions were always invisible to the naked eyes, but their victims who were always Whites were seen. This was what stopped the British Imperial rule in Kenya even though Jomo Kenyatta was arrested in 1952 for his role as the leader of the Mau Mau. Kenya obtained its Independence in which Jomo Kenyatta, the father of the present Kenyan President, Uhuru Kenyatta became the first President of Kenya in 1963.
What a pity that some religious fanatics will come with guns and explosives to kill and maim many innocent people including children and women at a Mall in Kenya. In Nigeria, some religious fanatics have also slaughtered and killed innocent country men, women and children, in Mosques and Churches, all in the name of God. Are we saying that nothing can be done; that we do not know what, and how to do what is needed to be done?
Are we Africans not stupid to yield to the envious notion and idea that what we know and have that can be used for the good of humanity generally, and Africa and Africans particularly, is fetish? What is wrong with being fetish? Fetish is an object or image invested by indigenous peoples with divine or demoniac power, and as such, reverenced devoutly. So what is wrong with being fetish? Compare the use of nuclear weapons, guns, automatic and non-automatic; bombs, and poisonous chemical to the use of fetish: Let us think of what we are denying ourselves. Its never too late to recognize the knowledge of the witches and wizards of Africa so that it can be taught and used for the good of our society and to be pass on for its preservation.
As we write these thoughts in this treatise, many Europeans and Americans who were already orthodox medical practitioners are now going back to study herbalism with a view to enjoining the spiritual knowledge of the natives to their mundane exoteric scientific knowledge. Others are using what they have to achieve what they want or need, - their goal; but Africans run away from what they have and allow others to catch them pants-down all the time. Is it not people that carry the guns and bombs with which they commit their havoc every time? The bombs, guns, and munitions do not carry themselves to wherever they will be used against their targets and those whom they consider as enemies. Even if it is the new technology, the unmanned drone, is it not a human hand that programs the unmanned craft with deadly missiles?
It has been said that with “African Science” that Nigerian wizards have made a sophisticated airplane that flies round-trips to New York from Nigeria in one night. Is it impossible therefore that the same knowledge or power can be used to ensure that those who are commanded to carry guns, the bombs or program a drone, are neutralized to be unable to do so beforehand? We are saying that the firing of the guns, detonation of the bombs, the havoc and destruction there from, are all effect and not the source; the source is those agents behind the planning and execution of whatever it is to be programmed, fired or used to cause unbearable hardship including death to innocent people.
Africa, Nigerians, use what you have to ensure your happiness and existence. One is not unaware that some of our misguided and miseducated people; some of the so-called African intellectuals because of their ability to articulate in a foreign language Eurocentric ideas, the religionists, and their fanatics, will argue that what cannot be verified has no basis for acceptance. The set of miseducated Africans forget that their inability to verify a manifestation does not rest with the manifestation but their own inadequacy. One’s own inability to understand an exoteric scientific formula does not nullify the existence of the scientific equation among exoteric scientists. But the religionists accept and believe that Jesus died on the cross while Muhammad was God’s Messenger even though, they have no actual evidence of what they have been made to believe.
Africa, do not become a victim of blackmail; the murderers who invaded the Mall in Kenya should not have had the opportunity to do so if the Kenyans visa-za-vise all African countries’ rulers have not failed to see beyond their nose. It was a muted rumor that the famous French Concord plane that used to fly within an hour from London to New York was purchased from Kenyan wizards. Is there any reason an African government should rely solely on the power of the guns from their ex-colonial masters to achieve harmony, peace and progress?
The late Jomo Kenyatta successfully tapped into the invisible world of the Kenyans, as the then leader of Mau Mau; President Uhuru Kenyatta should not let the Kenyans down; do not let President Barack Obama down, please. Seek you shall find, knock the door will be opened. Become Initiated into the wisdom of the indigenous Arts and Science of the Masai and the Kikuyus. If you cannot become an Initiate of your traditional science, seek the assistance of those illustrious indigenes of Kenya who knew the organization of what was Mau Mau.
What one is here propounding and recommending is a recipe for an African redemption. African peoples and their governments should look into it. Western ideas have not stopped corruption in Africa. The phenomenon is crippling the economy of the states; very few industries to provide employment for the youths; the youths are escaping to foreign lands in search of where to earn a living. Those at the helm of affairs have not informed the populace at all to look inward because some of them, the rulers are less conscious as they also believe that made in Nigeria or Africa is inferior to foreign made.
Watch it, if stopping corruption assignment in Africa/Nigeria is given to the witches and wizards of Africa/Nigeria, as a mark of recognition of their arts and crafts, every state treasury in the continent will not be looted by those placed to manage the economy of the states. If our culturally abominable behaviour of homosexuals can be recognized by European/Western countries, what stops African countries from giving credence or legitimacy to witchcrafts and wizardry; creatively use their wonderful energies to protect our economic system? Funds will become available to create industries that provide employment for the teaming population on the continent if corrupt officials are deterred. Start this experiment in all African states by ensuring that everyone who must exercise state authority, judicial officials, the police, and those that have a political portfolio in all administration take the Oath of Office by using a Cultural Artifact which is a Symbol that represents a powerful Deity among the Kenyan people, the peoples of Nigeria, Ghana, Ethiopia, and so on etc., etc. The use of the Bible and the Koran when people are being sworn into offices in Africa are instruments that have been in use and have not proved their worth on the subject matter.
Corruption is stoppable in Africa, but not with western methods. Africans should have gone through a cultural reorientation after the colonial spell; absence of this reorientation is the result of the current cultural disorientation which is responsible for many of the societal dissonance in many of the African countries. African peoples cannot afford to wait any longer to join the rest of the conscious communities of the world. The people need to be reorganized and controlled. Freedom is not free in a profitable democracy, and we cannot under utilize the talents of some viable members of the society, (the youths), by the current unemployment which prevails in most parts of the continent.
I am charging all African media practitioners, radio and television, public relations officers to most governments and their officials in Africa, to bring this matter and the prescription here prescribed to the attention of their presidents, ministers, governors, commissioners, permanents secretaries, directors, et cetera to look into this matter. Help us wake Africa up, and rescue the continent. No one else will save Africa but the Africans themselves. Therefore, Africa wake up, Nigerians stand up and claim your rightful place in Africa and the world; love yourselves and be conscious of what is yours and be proud of it. Anyone who runs from what they are will become what they are not.
