Culture / Re: How Carnival, Efik Calabar Culture Was Transported To Caribbean by LondonCool(m): 4:12pm On Jan 09
DissTroy:

I already stated it and have written on Nsibidi over the course of my time on this forum and on other fora.

The Ekpe cult is typically in Ibiono Ibom LGA of Akwa Ibom State. The Ekpe cult members were and still are the custodians of the Nsibidi form of writing which is similar to Hieroglyphics when analyzed.

One of main headquarters of slavetrade was along the shore of the Ibeno-Ikot Abasi area and Efik slaves along with slaves from the hinterlands where he Annangs and hinterland Ibibios reside.

About Akwa Ibom (chiefly Ibibios) being better than and dominating Cross River (sparsely Efiks) in ways I have mentioned in my preceding post: It's stating the obvious. Culturally and historically, the Ibibios have always dominated the Efiks and her neighbours. It has continued even till this day. Heck! Even the first civilian governor of Cross River State was an Ibibio man (Clement Isong).

The OP trying to hoodwink the reading public with false tales of 'never-was' had to be challenged. And asides ridiculing him here, my earlier dare still stands: We should both compare valid notes, records (including pictorial evidence) about the dominance or not of the Ibibios in the AkwaCross region.

Don't stoke embers of seething hatred with firewood of falsehoods.

If you claim that the Ekpe cult is of Ibiono Ibom origin can you kindly mention how many Ekpe grades the Efe Ekpe ( if any ) at Ibiono Ibom they have and whom they were purchased from?

The only Ekpe lodge in Akwa Ibom is at Ekpe Efe Ekomo at Uyo, at Itu and at Oron. This can be confirmed from the recent UNESCO field work study into the curation of the Ekpe institution in the Cross River region and Cameroon.

The Efiks are much fewer in number than the Ibibio’s ( by even a ratio of 1:12) but by fortitude of their location by the River side came into contact with the British traders/Supercargoes who established trading relationships with the Efik chiefs during the slave trade era.

Most of the slaves taken away were Ibibio’s and Igbo’s (and Efik indigenes who were being punished). As a result of the trading relationship the Efik culture and language became the dominant language in the area.

The orthography for Efik language was written in 1876. The orthography for Ibibio was written in 1982 by Prof Okon Esien. Until now in Akwa Ibom the Bible being used in churches there is the Efik Bible. Even Prophesy in Akwa Ibom churches is done in Efik language. This is the result of long lasting influence of cultural assimilation of the Efik by the Ibibio’s.

Can you kindly mention one single cultural and historical influence Ibibio’s have on the Efik?

You copied and assimilated our Efik names, dance, wedding costumes, food and language.

Historically, what is the oldest secondary school or hospital or building in Akwa Ibom State? When did you start having Christian churches in Akwa Ibom?

You mentioned Gov Clement Isong, he’s got nothing to do with the discussion. I’m sure you were not old enough to see him or even Gov U.J.Esuene.

Ibibio's are much more in numerical strength than the Efik, that had always been the case since the first general election in Nigeria in 1923 when they were only 4 Federal Legislative Seats in Nigeria. 3 Seats were allocated to Lagos and 1 was given to Calabar under the 1922 Cliffords constitution.

Let’s move on and not distort history or try to claim ethnic superiority over each other. If you are in doubt read up on history books by E.U.Aye, Rev Hugh Goldie, Dr K.K. Nair, A.T.H. Latham, Percy Talbot, Prof Monday Noah, Prof Abasiattai, Prof Okon Uya, Prof Afigbo, et al

Attakwu101:
Efiks enslaved and sold mostly Ibibios ,some present day Central Cross river, and Igbos from the hinterland who were captured by Arochukwu and sold to Efiks to be sold to the European Merchants. Some Efiks at the bottom of society were also sold by elite Efiks .
Efik culture was dominant and more influential. whether most of the slaves were Efiks or not, Efik culture and methods survived in the Americas.

I think a good example would be the fact that the English culture survived and thrived in North America even though the English were fewer in number. For example,you would be hard pressed to find a pure English descendant American founder . Most white Americans today are actually German,Dutch ,Irish,Scottish,Italian descendants who adopted English names to fit in , as oppose to the original English whose culture was Dominant though had smaller population. Donald Trump , George Bush, John Kennedy,Hulk Hogan are not English blood like George Washington , Bill Clinton,Abraham Lincoln, or Andrew Jackson.
And in the Akwacross area today you can see the same pattern played out as Ibibio and annang adopted original Efik names and methods .names such as Bassey , Essien, Ekanem,Edet, Inyang, Etim, Edem,Ansa,Ekeng,, etc. They were not allowed to adopt some elite Anglo Efik names such as Ironbar, Duke,Henshaw, Hogan,Yellow-duke,Archibong, Effiom, etc. Those names were maintained in small circles and traced to lineage.


Don't know if you are right, but sounds interesting

I will be investing N1m this month with MBA Forex and will be sharing my journey here. I will be investing on the assumption that MBA Forex will still be in operation until April 2021.

I will be investing a total of N4m, reinvesting N5m (compound interest) and hope to have earned a total drawdown of N12m by April 2021

My drawdown is as follows: October N1,550,000 November N1,475,000 December N1,400,000 January N2,175,000 February N1,100,000
March N2,300,000 April N2,000,000= Total: N12m

I am a self-taught part-time Forex Trader and can easily make 15% monthly returns for myself. MBA Forex is sitting on tonnes of cash and easily employ the best Forex EA's to trade for them so I am not bothered if they are scams or not. I have a close friend who works there for them. I have given him two indicators to watch out for as a sign that they might be in cashflow trouble that he needs to let me know about.
1) Whenever the interest offered drops from 15% to 10%
2) When staff are under pressure to drive for more deposits or are being given ridiculous deposit targets.

Let's get this party started.

I just did an initial investment of N850,000, will top it up to N1m by the end of the month.
