Shehu Sani: Harry And Meghan's Reception Was A Show Of Colonial Mentality by ganisucks(f): 12:56pm On May 11
Former lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani, has picked holes with the recent visit of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to Nigeria.

According to Sani, the protocol displayed “obsequiousness and colonial mentality, claiming it was utterly disgusting.”

In a post on his X handle on Saturday, the lawmaker said he likes Harry and Meghan because of their rebellious attitude and appreciated their visit to Nigeria.

He said: “I like Harry and Meghan because of their rebellious attitude and I appreciate their visit to my country; but the obsequiousness and colonial mentality displayed by the protocol of their visit is utterly disgusting. I hope when the elder brother comes, our officials will not carry him on their shoulders.”

DAILY POST reported that Harry and Markle arrived in Nigeria for their 72-hour tour on Friday.

This is the first time Harry and Meghan are visiting Nigeria together.

Other travellers were held back while they were escorted off into a waiting blacked out minibus.

I'm glad someone is speaking out. Yesterday, Nigeria participated in HIGH TREASON. It was so disgusting and ridiculous. The whole charade smirked of desperation and utter stewpidity. If the government was serious, I expect a court martial of some officers, followed by public capital punishment, like Anini got. There's only one king and his name is King Charles, after which will be KING WILLIAM. Nigeria has no business interfering in matters that are way above our pay grade.

This is the response of the British high commission...
In an interview with NAN, Montgomery said: “It’s great that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are visiting Nigeria, which I understand is at the invitation of Defence Headquarters.

“But they are visiting in a private capacity, not an official one. So, the British High Commission is not involved in arranging or facilitating their programme. They are not representing the work of His Majesty’s Government on this visit.”

Sani is a talkative. This is just protocol. This family is being hounded because of a mixed race wife. Racist institution. Don't start it here again over frivolities.

SIX FACTS THAT PROVE THAT NIGERIA ISN'T AN INDEPENDENT COUNTRY
1. The current Nigerian constitution isn't a product of the representatives of the Nigerian people. It was a document cobbled up by the military head of state who took over after the death of General Abacha. It was Abdulsalami Abubakar who produced the 1999 constitution Nigeria is using. It wasn't subjected the acceptance or contribution of the people that are forced to abide by it.
2. Nigeria presidential candidates still visit 10 Downing Street, for acceptance and host debates in London to showcase their capabilities and loyalty to the British before the presidential elections. No other country in Africa or in the world does so today.
3. Nigerian politicians are easily invited to either the US or England to hold meetings with government representatives over their to secure the interests of those countries against the original interest of the people they are meant to represent. Northern governors have been visiting these countries for some years now.
4. The Nigerian army claims to be celebrating about 150 years of being in existence. How old is Nigeria herself? This tells you the Nigerian army isn't really for Nigerians. They are a colonial relic and have continued to operate for the vision of the colonialist. Their modus operandi remains the same which involves the burning down of communities and raping of women within Nigeria. They're always ready to offer protection to foreigners than the indigenous people within the territory of Nigeria.
5. All the traditional rulers/leaders of Nigeria still feel subservient to the British crown and willingly accept that position especially when they're placed near to the British monarch. The same cannot be said of the foremost Ghanaian king of the Asante people who carries himself with all the dignity that he commands. He is thus treated as an equal and accorded the necessary respect. The same can be said of the South African king of the Zulu people who can never feel subservient to the British crown despite the humiliation of aparthied. You can check the internet for pictures of these kings with the British monarch.
6. Most people in Nigeria still refer to the British as "colonial masters" instead of 'colonialists'. They still refer to Frederick Lugard as "Lord Lugard" despite the harm he did to us.

This last episode (Harry and Meghan informal visit) shows how the colonial mentality is still rife in Nigeria. See how they ceremoniously welcomed them as though they came on an official visit. It's a big shame.


If you disagree with these points, you can disprove them with your own points and provide proofs to that effect.

YOU ARE TALKING ABSOLUTE NONSENSE.

THE PRINCESS IS OF NIGERIAN ANCESTRY.

SHE IS OUR DAUGHTER.

THE COUPLE, ESPECIALLY MEGHAN, HAVE BEEN SUBJECTED TO RELENTLESS RACIST ATTACKS FROM THE ENGLISH MEDIA AND PALACE, WHICH FORCED THEM TO DUMP THEIR ROYAL DUTIES AND FLEE TO AMERICA TO LIVE.

NOW THE BRITISH ARE TRYING TO DEGRADE AND DEMARKET THE PRINCE, AND YOU ARE SUPPORTING THEM BECAUSE YOU ARE STUPID AND THICK AND HAVE NO SENSE.

PRINCESS DIANA HAD AFFAIRS WITH OTHER MEN WHILE MARRIED TO CHARLES, AND REJECTED ROYAL CONTROL, YET THE BRITS ADORED AND LOVED HER REGARDLESS.

SO WHAT DID MEGHAN MARKLE DO TO MAKE THEM HATE HER SO MUCH?

NOTHING.

PURE RACISM.

HARRY AND MEGHAN ARE WELCOME TO NIGERIA ANYDAY, ANYTIME, AND WILL BE TREATED AS THE BRAVE, YOUNG ROYAL COUPLE THEY ARE.

AND ANYONE THATS GOT A PROBLEM WITH THAT CAN GO HUG A F.UCKING TRANSFORMER!
