Identity Is A Responsibility by mrox4d(m): 11:48pm On Jan 17
We find ourselves in a capacious but yet a clandestine world as a result of blithering embracement of western culture and values called civilisation. Why should we tend to embibe foreign cultures that are drastically distinct from our mother's culture? Why should we believe that english language is more consequential and alabastic, that ours is antique and unallure, this is why we find our languages absconding to extinction. Cant you see they are trying to sell their culture to us at an expensive rate and buying ours for free? We find our artisteries in their museums and tourist centers where tourist (including nigerians) visits and pays, while we dont value them over here. Have they not succeded? Of course yes, do you want to know how? Ok see how many nigerians can actually speak their mother tongue and how many britians can speak theirs? Well axiomatically 100% of educated britians can while less than 40% of educated nigerians can manage to. That is why they know our tribal, ethnic,local & national secretes because all this are in their books written in english language, how many of our books of history are written in our local dialects? As if this was not enough, i also learnt that the federal government has scrapped History and our local dialects from schools sylabus because of insufficeint suppy of teachers in this disciplines. Is this not a stigma? Before colonization we were interacting and trading with each other in Nigeria, within africa and the world at large,what was the shenanigan? ...WELL I AM OF THE CONSTRUE THAT EDUCATION DOES NOT MEAN YOU SHOULDN'T KNOW WHO YOU ARE,WHERE YOU ARE FROM & WHERE YOU WANT TO GO... Feel free to drop your post-mortem advice or solutions to this antsy corrigendum.... thank you my fans...i remain your one and only MR OX4D
