THE YORUBA HISTORY ABOUT THE EDO PEOPLE.
« on: July 06, 2015, 06:31:02 PM »
HAVE YOU WONDERED WHY FOR SO MANY YEARS NONE OF EDO HISTORIAN`S BOOK HAS BEEN ACCEPTED OR RECOMMENDED TO BE USED IN THE SYLLABUS FOR SECONDARY SCHOOL LEAVERS ? THE REASON IS BECAUSE THEY HAVE NEVER WANTED ANYBODY TO KNOW THE REAL TRUTH.THEY KNOW IF THEY ALLOW US TO WRITE OUR HISTORY BY OURSELVES, IT WILL MAKE NONSENSE OF THEIR OWN.DO YOU ALSO OBSERVED THAT THE ONLY HISTORIANS WHOSE WORKS WERE RECOGNIZED BY THE YORUBA HISTORIANS WERE THE ONES WHO GRADUATED FROM THEIR SCHOOLS.EVEN MOST OF THE BOOKS WERE EDITED BY THE YORUBA SCHOLARS.THERE HAS BEEN PLANS BY THE YORUBA NATION TO RUBBISH THE GOOD IMAGE OF THE EDOS.THIS BECAUSE THEY ARE JEALOUS OF THE HISTORY THE EDO PEOPLE HAVE MADE.THEIR PLANS IS TO USE US TO INCREASE THEIR POPULATION,THEREFORE, MAKING US LOOK LIKE THIRD CLASS KIND OF PEOPLE. JUST AS THE FULANIS IN THE FAR NORTH ARE MAKING USE OF THE MIDDLEBELT PEOPLE TO GET THEIR AIM, SO ALSO THE YORUBAS WANT TO USE THE EDOS. CHIEF AWOLOWO TRIED TO USE POLITICS TO MAKE US PART OF THEM BUT IT DID NOT WORK. THANK GOD FOR OUR WISE FATHERS WHO DEMANDED THE CREATION OF MIDWESTERN STATE.SO, THEY FORMED ALL KINDS OF ASSOCIATIONS IN ORDER TO BRING US UNDER THEM. e. g, EGBE OMO ODUDUWA AND THE REST. EDOS MUST RISE FROM ITS` SLUMBER. WE ARE TOO GREAT A PEOPLE TO BE BOUGHT OVER. WE MUST NOT SELL OUR BIRTH RIGHT TO ALIENS.MY ADVICE TO EDO PEOPLE IS TO MAKE GOOD USE OF WHAT WE HAVE. EDO CULTURE MUST BE PROMOTED IN HOME VIDEOS,BOOKS, STORYTELLING, ART WORK, MODE OF DRESSING, THE FOOD WE EAT,ETC.
