Career / Re: My Success Story As A Civil Engineer Earning 7 Figures by Edeyoung: 6:24pm On Oct 25
SLIDEwaxie:
You're simply what they call a lucky Bastard. This doesn't make your smart or better. You can't be a good civil engineer in school, it can only be because of long years in practice.

Now, that being said- you designing a structure is the job of an architect, supervision is the job of a builder and the structural aspects is for a structural engineer, in which you come in..

And nobody would pay ₦200,000,000 into a savings account for a job just based on recommendation because clearly you were a novice. Lass lass, if they were desperate to help you, they'll attach you with a major construction firm and pin you as a head of department.

My point, you are just one of the lucky bunch, you're not smart or very good and you're probably just a liar

I swear lucky bastard want to turn his story to motivational inspiration

If he was indeed good we would have heard his name

Do you understand that the region were the white people are staying various numerous volcanic activities that formed their landmass..

If you are leaving africa to Europe you will understand that European is on a higher altitude(elevation) than Africa continent, which is on a lower land,

What formed the landmass of Europe is activities of volcano over thousands of millions of years their land mass are still restructuring regularly due to volcanic eruption not that no one is dieing of such disasters like you make us to believe

Not many might know this; but as always, history always has a good way of reminding us that even in some of our most darkest times, some certain conditions can cause the rise of some uncertain and unlikely heroes to come to the rescue of people whom are being oppressed by an Oppressive force.


Not many might know who Usman Dan Fodio is, but for those who may not know about the man in question; Usman Dan Fodio (born on 15th December 154, Gobir - died 20 April 1817, Sokoto) was a renowned Fulani scholar, religious teacher, military leader, Revolutionary, Promoter of Sunni Islam and the core founder of the Sokoto Caliphate in Nigeria.


Not too many may know why this man's name rings a bell, but the few who know him can bear witness to the fact that he was indeed a great Warrior.


But according to historical records, Usman Dan Fodio was responsible for the fall of many empires in Old Nigeria; he was the one who put an end to the reigns of the Hausa Kings of Northern Nigeria; and he was also the reason why the mighty Oyo Empire fell.

Now when this man was done with carrying out a successful jihad in some parts of the Northern and the Western part of the country, he shifted his attention down to East.


BUT ONE OBA OF BENIN, PUT AN END TO THE RAGING ARMY OF USMAN DAN FODIO AND THAT OBA WAS NONE OTHER THAN OBA ESIGIE OF BENIN


This Oba (According to Historical sources) was recorded to have mobilized a massive army to face the invading Fulani Army of Usman Dan Fodio, even so that he was successful in the Battle that took place.

Many historians argue that Oba Esigie of Benin was the reason why Usman Dan Fodio's jihad was not successful in the Eastern part of the country.


It's important to note that some historians argue that if the Oba Esigie's army was defeated in the Battle he fought against the Fulani Army, Benin would have succumbed to the Jihad and other parts of Igbo land would have followed suit; ranging from the fact that the Igbo communities as of them were not as organized as the Benin Empire whom had a standing army and a well organized monarchy.





https://ng.opera.news/ng/en/politics/amp/bfec83d48cf2b732cd6348f780bc5f27




Benin never encountered fulani their armies were no match for the benins, their armys were still using swords and arrow with horses for warfare when benin already had canons guns, they bought

It would have been a walk over by the benins if the fulanis had encountered benin kingdom

Their empire was so weak it collapsed before the benin empire....

There was no Lagos when that oba was ruling.

He ruled over Eko which originally described a small part of Lagos island not Lagos state under the current arrangement.

And more fun fact, he ruled over Eko Aromire an Awori sub clan of Lagos which he met there.

There were vast areas of Lagos state in which he has no power over then and today

Ikorodu, Epe, ibeju, most parts of mainland which the Egbas and other Awori controlled, Badagry areas which the Egun and Awori controlled, the waters ways which ilaje controlled.

You're very shallow on Nigeria history benin controlled the entire lagos, tho her cultural influence didnt spread to all part unlike it did on some part.....

Benin were the first majour dellers on slaves in badagary.... Till benin influence left lagos completely in the late 17c

I don't usually like to get involved when compatriots start having a dig at each others in other not to be seen as taking sides.

However, let me point out few things.

1. Was there alliance between Oba Eweka 11, the Alaafin of Oyo and Ooni of Ife after the death of Oba Ovonramwen? I believe there was.

2. Was there any such connection before 1897? I can't find evidence to support any connection between Ooni and Benin but there was evidence of Oba of Benin and Alaafin of Oyo alliance.

3. Does your submission that claims that Oba Eweka 11 used to pray for himself, Ooni and Alaafin in the morning mean that he sees (Ooni and Alaafin) as superior? I don't think so, praying for people or other traditional rulers you are in alliance with doesn't mean they are superior to you.

4. The very fact that both the Benin Palace after 1897 and the Ooni subscribe to the Oduduwa story is enough evidence of an alliance between them in colonial times for mutual political gains, there is other evidence that I wouldn't like to disclose here.

5. There are no mentions of Ife, Oduduwa and Oranmiyan in Benin history pre-1897.


Number 3, i really wasnt saying the alafin or ooni was superior to the oba of benin never, i only used the quote to buttress my point on the political alliance between the Yorubas and edos

Just incase you got the 1824 date from my writeup, let me clarify some points.

1824 was when the first Europeans visited the hinterland of Yoruba (Oyo) and started gathering first hand historical accounts of the Yoruba people.

Around this same time the Europeans also visited the Sultan of Sokoto, Sultan Bello, Sultan Bello had documented that the Yorubas migrated from the middle east (Mecca).

The Europeans that were in Oyo (the lander Brothers and co) collected a different tradition from that of Sultan Bello.

In both accounts, Oduduwa wasn't mentioned.

Oduduwa was a myth in some Yoruba traditions until some returnee slaves such as Samuel Johnson started writing the history of the Yoruba.

Samuel Johnson in 1897 built his Yoruba middle east origin on Sultan Bello's 1822-1824 narrative but unlike Sultan Bello that claimed that the Yorubas migrated from Mecca, Samuel Johnson argued in the direction of Egypt because he said there were no records of Oduduwa in the history of Mecca.

This is how a mythical Oduduwa was transformed into the Moses that led his Yoruba people from the middle east to their current location in Nigeria. Some Igbos did the same by tracing themselves back to Israel.

The Oduduwa story was built on Sultan Bello's 1824 unsubstantiated narrative.

What some of you propagate as history are mostly layers of lies told over time by different people and Yoruba history is full of these kind of narratives, they try to get away with it by telling you they were scholarly works by experts.

The so called experts need materials to work with and in most cases these materials are lies told over time and at the end the experts and professionals just help to further the lies to advance their careers.

The only true history are the ones documented by eyewitnesses who happened to witness what they wrote down. This is why Benin has no rival and a reference point.

Benin is the only significant kingdom/empire in Nigeria with such eyewitness historical accounts dating back to the 1400s, Yoruba eyewitness historical accounts started in 1824, the story of Oduduwa was created much later.

Yea this is a well researched carried out, not the baldman down here pointing fingers and calling people traitors because they decide to speak the undiluted truth that point fingers to the palace on their wrong doings

In that period of time, see the following pictures of the oni and alafin and their palaces in that order.

3) Benin didn't seek any political help from the yoruba, if anything, the Oba of Benin was annoyed of being dragged into a myth which reduced his imperial might to being likened to small kings like those of oyo and Ife.
4) the story of Ogiso is a reaction to the story of oduduwa and oranmiyan

How was it slave returnees? And Bini oral history very clearly states that your original lineage of kings or Ogiso were replaced with the Oba kingship title of the Yoruba and replaced with a Yoruba king Oranmiyan essentially meaning your royal lineage are partly Yoruba if you're so sure of your oral history do a DNA test on your rulers and see how it comes back it's impossible for a group as small as the Bini to have been the origin of the Yoruba people of 45 million plus spread across three countries it just doesn't happen


It's like England claiming to be the source of all European empires when we already know that their royal lineage is German


Ogisos were mere mythical expressions by bins that was told to the white men, benin never for once believed in any Supreme being above, they believed all Gods existed on earth before the arrival of the whitemen... And the deceased remained on earth to guide their family from harm, they thought nothing of the heavens apart from the fact it brought down rains and sun which they believed the gods of the earth controlled

The concept of ogiso by the benins was born out of European influences of Christianity that believed on heavenly kings

The concept of osa( God) was born out of thesame Christianity later on after the myth of the ogiso which came centuries before, at this time the benins had fully accepted Christianity as another idol in the kingdom and as they were told the idol king Jesus leaved above

Now the concept behind benin and ife relation began after amalgamation when the benin sort political help from the Yoruba to unite in one false history for political benefit of the edo and Yoruba people and the history of Oduduwa migration into benin was born as the cultural unification...

It should be stated that Ubulu-Uku traditions do not agree with Benin traditions on how the war ended. Ubulu-Uku maintains that the war ended in a stalemate and Obi Olise survived it to reign in Ubulu-Uku till he died of old age.

There is a quarter in Ubulu-Uku today called Umuidu (Idu descendants) which was founded by some Benin soldiers that took part in the war. After the campaign failed (so says Ubulu-Uku traditions) some Benin soldiers, afraid to return to Benin and face the wrath of the Oba, decided to settle down at Ubulu-Uku and were graciously absorbed.

There is no objective reason why the Edo-centric version should be held to be the accurate version, and the Ubulu-Uku one as false.

Benin had the arm force to curb her vassal state if we are to research on this further we will see the lies
