Politics / Did Ahmadu Bello Really Sodomise Kaduna Nzeogwu? by Sentientcarbon(m): 9:29am On Jan 14
It is alleged that the real reason Kaduna Nzeogwu killed Ahmadu Bello was because he had been abused by him as a child.

I am really curious about this. I would like to hear your thoughts.

Ibime:


None that matters, although each person's experience is different, for example, the prejudice in the job market experienced by a fresh African with deep African intonation can not be compared to another person with black skin who has assimilated into the culture/accent etc. I don't know if you will call this racism or rather "When in Rome, behave like the Romans". Unfortunately, many Africans never imbibed the culture and struggled in the workplace, some went home while others settled into menial jobs. For them the prejudice is real.

For highly skilled/ rare expertise like Doctors and some advanced scientists, it doesn't matter whether you assimilate or not. Hence I say in general, the Capital markets of the West do away with the racism that matters cos skills gaps must be filled whether you are black, white or yellow.

When one becomes fixated with racism, he subconsciously starts to hate the country and people he is living amongst, and that person can never do well in life. One thing my father told me as a teenager that stuck with me, he said "he who rejects the land, the land will reject him, and he who curses the land, the land will curse him", and he used this as a parable to explain the economic failure of Jamaicans/West Indians/Akatas as if to say their experiences with slavery/injustice have got them obsessed with injustices and racism to the point they are not at peace with the land and cannot aspire to prosper within it. At some point through my time in London, I found myself imbibing some of these feelings within these communities and had to make a conscious decision to ignore these feelings and start making more connections and friendships outside of our community with people who are economically empowered.

I still remember my final experience that blew away any cobwebs I had of judging people by their background. My whole life I had hated South African whites due to Apartheid and also one South African boy who had migrated to UK same time as me used to call me Kaffir in school till I busted his lip. Anytime I hear that South African accent, in my mind, I would just stay away from such a person until a South African Boer CFO hired me. At interview, once I heard the man's accent, I just wrote the job off. When I got there, no fewer than 4 or 5 colleagues were white SAFIs and they just blew away any preconceived idea I had about white South Africans. Funny enough, that guy was the best boss I ever had, highly knowledgeable without a shred of prejudice in him, only concerned with what skills you bring to the table. He still attended my wedding, and we still keep in touch to this day, even though he somehow decided to move back to South Africa in 2015, although he was meant to be moving to Germany today on Germany's last Covid repatriation flight from South Africa (his wife is German).

So, my experience with the South Africans was the last cobweb of racism that I cleared out from my mind. I find that the issue of racism is more to do with how you remove feelings of oppression from yourself, so you can go ahead and prosper in life. Where I live right now,.I think we have one black family on our street. Most of my neighbours are old white pensioners and we all get on fantastically. At the start of this Covid period, I was the one doing shopping for 3 of my neighbours until the backlog cleared from online deliveries. Even now, they still request fresh bread and fresh fruits when I hit the shops, and in turn when the local window cleaner comes to clean all of our windows, they pay for me. The thought of racism has not crossed my mind for a long time which is why I always laugh when I see people on Nairaland assuming we are suffering racism here. I don't doubt there is prejudice toward newly arrived people in the job market for example, but I must say the UK is a fantastic country.



Salient point. Although the thing about the U.K is that they're not quite as blatant as the U.S. in their own racism.

See how the English press is clearly prejudiced against Meghan Markle for no reason?

U.K racism is insidious. It is in the back talk and micro-aggresions. It is hardly ever overt except among football fans.

Are passports with red background allowed?!!!
Jobs/Vacancies / Re: INEC Recruitment 2020. How To Apply by Sentientcarbon(m): 9:38pm On Feb 19, 2020
Has anyone even looked at the specifications for the passport photos?

One of the specifications was 'plain light background', does that mean white background?

I tried googling it and learned that the term specifically referred to the lighting and didn't say much about backgrounds, which confused me more.

Another said 'no lines allowed'. I don't even know what that means.

Please can anyone clarify?

Prophecy is a very mysterious branch of divinity. One must be careful in the interpretation of vision and dreams because these things are usually encoded in highly symbolic imagery.

A lot of you here are twisting the visions you have seen to fit your ethno-centric narratives. God is not beholden to you, his will stands, and that will is completely independent of your wishes and desires. I have seen prophecies from renowned prophets who have a track record of accurate prophecies give prophecies that were slightly at odds with what I've seen here so far.
Our responsibility now as a church is to thwart the evil plans of the enemy and prevent unnecessary bloodshed.

God is not the author of confusion. Let's dissect this issues with wisdom and patience, and while we do that let us watch and pray.

Politics / Re: Lai Mohammed Lied, FG Paid ‘Large Ransom’ To Free Dapchi Girls – UN Report by Sentientcarbon(m): 12:28pm On Aug 17, 2018
kingthreat:
Government had to do what they had to do. If not, these Dapchi girls would have become suicide bombers or Boko Haram wives. The Dapchi saga shows how effective the Buhari administration has been in resolving issues. I wish we wouldnt have to negotiate with insane terrorists but God knows best. May God keep protecting the lives of our young ones from terrorists.

You cannot be serious now, can you?
Really, you cannot surely be serious when you said "the government did what they had to do".
This same government had already paid Boko Haram $10million after which they declared them 'technically defeated'. Shortly after that they kidnapped a bunch of school girls, an operation which from all indications and evidence was orchestrated by the govt and top brass in the military.
Next the girls were returned and the govt denied paying any ransom to the terrorists, a claim which has recently been refuted by the UN. Now it has come to light that the govt paid a 5 million Euro ransom which should be about $5.6 million to the same terrorists which had earlier been given $10million. That brings the total sum to roughly $15.6MILLION paid in ransom to terrorists. Now imagine if that sum had been used to train and equip our own military. Just imagine.

Now when you convert $15.6million to naira, you get #5.638682400(Naira), that is 5.6 Billion naira!!!

The Defence budget for 2018 is 422.43 Billion Naira, that means 5.6 billion is 1.3% of 422 billion. Imagine that Boko Haram gets 1.3% of the national defence budget!
Despite the threads of a conspiracy that litter the whole story, the fact that we even pay ransom to a terrorist organisation when the Defense budget is so large means that something stinks here! I pray that the stench kills all those involved.

blackaxe78:
Which country does not pay terrorists to get citizens to safety?

A US, UK or Russia will do if the option is there. Even prisoners are exchanged for hostages

This is not true, these nations have an overt anti-terrorist policy. Let me prove it.

1.The United States: This can be seen in their treatment of ISIS, Al-QAEDA (they covertly invaded Pakistan and killed Bin-Laden) and Abdul-Mutallab who was tried and jailed for life.

2. U.K: There is no evidence that the U.K has ever negotiated with terrorists, in-fact they lent some force to the U.S invasion of Afghanistan.

3. Russia: The fact that you mentioned Russia in your successful bid to ridicule yourself by that statement you just posted shows that you are either ignorant of the Russian stance on terrorism or sympathetic to Islamic terrorism. Russia has a ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY FOR TERRORISM which they have demonstrated on numerous occasions.

Let me list some instances with proof:

(i) The Beirut Diplomats Saga: On September 30, 1985, a group of gunmen seized four Soviet diplomats and embassy workers (Arkady Katkov, Valery Myrikov, Oleg Spirin, and Nikolai Svirsky) in Beirut. During the kidnapping right outside the embassy, Katkov was wounded in the leg. The abductors called themselves "The Khaled Al-Walid Force" and the "Islamic Liberation Organization". Russia quickly dispatched its 'Alpha Group", one of it's special forces branches tasked with counter-terrorism hostage-rescue operations to Beirut to deal with the threat. Once the team learned that Arkady Katkov, a consular attaché and one of the four hostages, was killed, they responded quickly by tracking down and locating one of the kidnappers’ leaders (or relative it’s not clear). In order to send a clear message to the terrorists, Alpha group members castrated the hostage, cut him down into pieces and sent him to the hostage takers. They also threatened to kill more of the kidnappers’ relatives if the Soviet diplomats were not free.

As a result, the 3 hostages were released and dropped off near the Soviet Embassy and no Russian officials were ever taken captive since then.

(ii) The Moscow theater hostage crisis:On the 23rd of October 2002, 40-50 armed Chechens who claimed allegiance to the Islamic separatist movement in Chechnya demanded a withdrawal of Chechnyan forces from Russia and demande an end to the second Chechnyan war. Russia was having none of that, so they sent in Spetsnaz operatives (Russian special forces) from the Alpha and Vega branches to deal with the situation. The Spetsnaz fought thier way in and killed ALL of the terrorists losing about 204 hostages in the process. Are you getting the point? Russia was prepared to lose 204 hostages to destroy all the terrorists and send a clear message.

As you can see you were clearly misguided and criminally ignorant in your assertion that the U.S, U.K and Russia most particularly are in the habit of coddling Islamic terrorists.

pacespot:
He is aligning Nigeria with the path that does not promote the interest of the West, that's why all this is coming up. Remember, Nigeria is now trading yuan against dollar. Buhari is firm on his rigid exchange rate policy which has so far been successful in preventing naira from sliding. IMF, World Bank and several multilateral institutions have all suggested that the exchange rate be floated, but Buhari refused. Also, his anti corruption war is preventing money from flowing easily from Nigeria into corrupt havens in these advanced countries, unlike in the PDP era. I've always suggested that the president should change his medical trip from these western countries to a less intrusive country like China or India, you can't be pursuing foreign policies that are unfavorable to the West while you are going there for medical service, it is very unsafe.

Now, the West wants to install corrupt stooges in PDP to help control Nigerian money into their pocket. I've seen Atiku making frequent visits to UK recently. I don't know why any sane country would still listen to these western countries with all that is happening in their political sphere: election of Donald Trump, Brexit, trade tensions, unilateralism, etc. These people only care about their own interest, they don't care if the world is burning. I'm not saying Buhari is a perfect guy, he surely has his own flaws, for instance he should have responded firmly against the rampaging herdsmen in the country, but any election that will see power returning to PDP is a no step forward for Nigeria at this time. Despite the oil price slump, Buhari has moved Nigeria's foreign reserve from barely $25bn in Jonathan administration to over $40bn, global economy is facing turbulence presently but the present administration is investing in infrastructural projects that would see Nigerian economy transformed in the long run.

Returning power to corrupt Buffoons that ruled us mercilessly for 16 years is nothing short of insanity.

This is a carefully crafted and biased lie.
Buhari had nothing to do with the increase in foreign reserves, our economy is dependent on oil, therefore the fluctuation in prices affects the foreign reserves.

Okay!

In my dream i was in a place that looked quite like a mine, a solitary fellow was harvesting diamonds and piling them in large heaps, he would stop to look at them for a while then return to his work. Behind him stood an unusual statue, it was just the head of a heavily bearded man, it sat between the piles of diamonds, it was large and tall quite as tall as the man himself.
After watching him dig for a while i noticed he came upon a particularly beautiful jewel, it was as large as an orange but oval shaped and very clear with bits of beautiful dots of colour scattered within it. He picked it up and placed it in a little space within the statue, away from the rest of the jewels.
He continued digging for a short while then returned to examine the jewel. He took it out of the statue then began slowly turning it over in his hands admiring it's beauty. At that point i suddenly became very weak while still watching him, i then stretched out my right hand at him and said "The King's Jewel will never be yours", then he raised up his head and looked at me, i don't know why i said those words or what they meant but that was the end of that dream.

CharlyG1:
In the early hours of yesterday, the Lord revealed to me a working in the spirit world. I'm still pondering upon this and why God showed me this.. Maybe the revelation isn't complete yet. God will make that known. I did not want to share this at first but I suddenly felt an urge in my spirit to share this.
So I want to share this with you guys now..

In this is no lie at all. But it is to the glory and majesty of God.



In the very early hours of yesterday morning (Tuesday) in a revelation. The Lord took me into the spirit world.


On the roads I saw demons and very strange beings, I easily could feel their spiritual rankings, in other words, I could determine the measure of their strength.



Some stared at me continuously. One tried to enter into my physical body (I do not remember how i knew that). Another spoke in my mind, telling me that he was the spirit of a friend I knew in the physical world. He kept banging a gate to get my attention. The spirit showed me the face of this friend. I knew it was trying to deceive me that he(my friend) had died. But I thank God for He(God) was with me.
I saw no humans in this realm, only demons posing as humans here on earth (even acting and mimicking their behaviours).



Some of the demons walked down the road slowly. They lived like beasts, like animals, foul creatures.
One of the demons I saw behaved insane.



The Lord now took me to a huge building. It looked like an ancient palace.
In this place, particularly in the court yard. There is a very strange statue. The statue is the image of a young child with an ancient magical object in his right hand. The statue has it's left leg lifted up slightly and it's left arm stretched out. It looked like he was trying to give someone that object.



I saw two evil spirits in a conversation. They looked like goddesses not like the demons I saw on the roads. These ones looked like high ranking spirits and they had ghostly appearances. They were greyish white with no descriptive appearance whatsoever for their faces looked indescribable.
They floated on air and moved very quickly.



The Lord now showed me that there is an appointed time in this dimension(spirit world) when a spirit or demon is allowed to cross over to the other side (physical world).
And the time comes at the early rise of the sun.



Now the spirit who was talking to the other was like a lord and master over the other spirit. And they were female spirits. She was telling the other that at the first break of the morning sun, that she(the lesser spirit) must cross over to the physical dimension. There was an important task for this lesser spirit to do for the other spirit in the physical realm. And this evil spirit was very desperate to make sure the other spirit crosses over to other side and do this major task.
They stood about 4feets away from me but they could not see me or sense me. I believe it was because God put a spiritual invincible cover upon me.


The portal to the physical plane could only work with the touch of the early morning sun and the object that was in the right hand of the statue. This object occurred to my understanding to be an ancient Egyptian relic used in ancient Egyptian black magic (will search on that later)
The Lord showed me the shape of the object which I drew(when I woke up). It had a round shape that went round continuously with a bent stick that held it ( like the design of a lollipop, but a bent handle).



Suddenly the early morning came, and a bright white light shone in the courtyard where I was with these two spirits, then the object in the right hand of the statue shone and turned a gold colour, bringing the object to life. A portal was opened and I ran into it and crossed over to the other side.
The evil spirit did the same too.



When the spirit crossed she immediately opened a door and went into it.
I entered too and what my eyes saw was too much to behold.



There was so much treasures stored up, gold, prized possessions that looked very very ancient but held a very great value in this present world. I just kept looking amazed.
There was just so much wealth.. Wealth that no man on earth had ever seen.

The Lord let me see that just beside this treasure room there were lifeless(still) images of many women who wore only panties of the same colour, these women were on their knees and they all held calabashes beside them. And in their midst was someone that looked like a priest and there was an altar which was supposed to contain their god that they worship.



As I wondered upon this strange thing. The Lord told me.
He said 'Hardship has come upon them because their goddess is no more'

The Lord showed me some other things that is a bit difficult to remember.


At this time, I could pass through doors, walls and windows but only by singing a particular christian song. And so I passed through some places. It was like I had to pass through these places to get to my destination.

I entered a very large and dark hall.
Suddenly, a gigantic evil spirit being now noticed me. The spirit was like a guardian of that particular place where I was.
And so I fled hurriedly. I was in fear, then I realized that I could no longer pass through the doors, or windows or walls but my spirit man knew where the exit door was.

So I went through the exit door(physical realm). Then I woke up.

When I saw this, I woke up and wrote down what I saw. It was some minutes past 1am. I know God showed me this for a very very important thing.
Fragments of the revelation immediately started leaving me, like I had forbidden knowledge and someone was slowly taking away the memories of the revelation.

Then I asked God to show me again. And surprisingly, I heard him say 'They must not see you'.
Then I prayed that I remember what I forgot and God made me remember.


There is evil in our world and many mysteries unknown to us. And there is a thin veil between the spirit realm and physical realm.
We are only safe in Jesus Christ.



There are hidden treasures stored in darkness. There are stolen properties belonging to God's children and God wants to release it back unto us.

Isaiah 45 vs 3:

And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.


Some people here will experience a release of wealth in their lives this month. Your joy will be full this month. The years the canker worms have eaten will be restored to you (Joel 2 vs 25).

I do not know the extent of damage this revelation will cause to the kingdom of darkness. But I was shown that demons will come after me after this in different manners, they were looking for me and I looked sick at that moment in the revelation. I saw some of my friends behaving strange to me.
I pray for God's strength. Please put me in prayers.


But I am happy that the powers that held us down are no more. And any other power coming against us is already defeated because we are victorious through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


I will keep standing for Christ no matter what it takes. I pray we all do the same.

God bless us all.



Bro!!! I had a VERY similar dream 3 nights ago!

ApexTitan:
It's amazing seeing the level rationalisation of deception on this thread.

People have to ask themselves what is important; to enter into a relationship based on trust and understanding or to build on one with insincerity and fraud.

Is the end game to stay married no matter what?

The bulk of female opinion here agree that that is the aim. Don't rock the boat, let sleeping dogs lie, the past doesn't matter. The fact that men are sold a lie regarding their partners is of no consequence. It is what the women want that is of primary importance.

And what they want is that after rocking their party years they should be free to settle down as they please. The campaign is open and real. And so we see rationalisations that say society should be less judgemental on women, that not all men are capable of bearing the truth...

Even Joseph the earthly father of Jesus was about to cancel his engagement with Mary when he learnt that she was pregnant with child, it took an angel from heaven to persuade him to continue with the marriage. No man will readily accept a promiscious partner.

Women innately know this. They innately sense that their chances of marriage are slim if their colourful past is opened up before men so the rationalisations continue in earnest.

Men, Be ever vigilant!


Very Lucid stream of thought. Bravo!

Religion / Re: Jehovah's Witnesses: 17 Facts People Should Know About Them by Sentientcarbon(m): 5:55pm On Jan 16, 2016
TRINITYOFGOD:
. The Only Rational Conclusion

Let me recap. The Holy Spirit is called God (Acts 5:3,4). The Holy Spirit, by way of comparisons between the Old and the New Testament, is shown to be deity (Ex. 17:2,7 cf. Heb. 3:9; Jer. 31:31-34 cf. Heb. 10:15-17; etc.) and the Holy Spirit is eternal, all-knowing, all-powerful and everywhere present. Therefore, Mr. and Mrs. Jehovah's Witness, the only rational thing to conclude is, that the Bible teaches the Trinity doctrine even though the word itself is not found in the Bible. By the way, many words are not found in the Bible, but they are taught. The word bible is not in the Bible. The word millennium is not found in the Bible, but it is certainly taught several times at least in Revelation chapter 20. Just because the word is not there does not mean it's not taught. The Trinity doctrine is taught in the Bible.
Hopefully, if you can share this information with an open Jehovah's Witness, and there are some, they will see just what these Scriptures are teaching and they'll cling to this truth. I would recommend that when you're dealing with a Jehovah's Witness that you avoid, if possible, the subject of the Trinity and go to the subject of salvation. But if you can't, and you must give an answer for the Trinity doctrine, then let me recommend the evidence that I just brought forth

God bless you immensely brother. Amen!

[b]LOL OK my Chief, let me stop you at the first part of your post. first off no human being was killed on a cross and slaughtered for your sin. this is roman catholic mythology. you dont seem to understand that the bible is an allegorical text. its not to be read like a story book. you are meant to uncover the symbolism and allegory. that part where Jesus-Christ died on the cross for our sins simply means that the beast rose out of the bottomless pit ( beasts are empires ), so another empire emerged and the saints started losing their power and the word of God was usurped by the doctrine of this new empire which is the white mans empire aka the roman empire. so now the reason the saints fell is because the disciples attached to them started indulging in all kinds of wickedness and abusing their powers. and it got to a point they had committed so much atrocity so that the laws of karma had to kick in. the Lord took his power from the saints because of the wickedness of those around them who were being wicked. now they have to pay for all their sins and the white man comes in and starts kicking their a55 because God uses the newly crowned empires to punish the deposed empires. this is what is called CARRY YOUR CROSS. meaning its time to get payback for all your sins. its an expression and not a literal cross. SO THE SAINTS ( JESUS-CHRIST ) DIED BECAUSE OF OUR SINS IS THE DISCIPLES MAKING THAT STATEMENT IN THE NEW TESTAMENT MEANING ' BECAUSE OF US THE SAINTS LOST THEIR POWER AND THE KINGDOM '. meaning they died. their rulership died. they died on the cross. now all this inside detail i just furnished is in the book of zechariah. the old and new testament overlap.[/b]

now everything i have typed will not make sense to you but that is OK. its different depth levels of understanding the bible. the LORD wants you at the depth you are at and thats OK. but he wants me at a different depth than that. and let me tell you that the bible categorically tells you that abraham does not exist as a man. so if there is no man named abraham then there can be no man named isaac and further down the line there can be no man named JESUS CHRIST. telling you what ? the bible is deeper than what you think it is

galatians 4 vs 22 For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman.23 But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise.24 Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar. <<< SO THE BIBLE TELLS YOU IN THE BOOK OF GALATIANS THAT ABRAHAM DOES NOT EXIST AND THE STORY IS AN ALLEGORY. SO MY BROTHER ? THERE IS DEPTHS TO THE BIBLE THAT YOU CANT EVEN FATHOM BUT THE LORD KEEPS PEOPLE AT DIFFERENT DEPTH LEVELS OF UNDERSTANDING IT. MOST PEOPLE ARE SUPPOSED TO TAKE IT LITERAL AS A STORY BUT A FEW ARE SUPPOSED TO GO DEEPER BECAUSE WITHOUT THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE DEEPER, YOU CANT UNLOCK THE UNIVERSE. SO AT THE END OF THE DAY ? YOU ARE CORRECT IN WHAT YOU SAY BECAUSE THAT IS YOUR PORTION AND IT RINGS TRUE TO YOUR DEPTH OF UNDERSTANDING. SO LIKE THE SAYING GOES, ITS A BODY OF CHRIST WITH DIFFERENT FUNCTIONING PARTS. WE ARE ENDOWED WITH DIFFERENT TALENTS grin grin wink

The sheer arrogance!!!

Dude the US will beat russia in a conventional warfare but will be a Mutual assured destruction in a nuclear war

That is incorrect, the Russian rarely ever attack because their strategy consists of just pushing human shields until the objective is achieved. But in terms of defensive warfare, they are unequaled. Attacking them in winter would result in devastating casualties for the invader because of high density of snow, infact there's a military saying that 'Russia has two great generals-December and January'. That leaves only ten months, their road networks are generally poor and hardly navigable therefore you would have to deploy tanks, using large aircraft which would be sitting ducks for their excellent Anti-aircraft defence systems. They have drones as well as manned aircraft to defend their skies. Deploying soldiers would generally be pointless if the supporting combat equipment(Tanks, ATV's) are not on ground. That probably leaves only one option-Nuclear ICBM's, which would be insanely risky and suicidal considering the current state of M.A.D(mutually assured destruction) between both countries.

While the youth will behave like the youth, elderly person will behave elderly. It is unfortunately that those who call themselves opposition are just mere catoon with bat brain.

A bat is neither rat nor bird but found always with eyes closed, and yet it flies.

Any person with bat-like brain can never reason like president buhari,

Bro, you come across as an ignoramus with little understanding of history or the sustained colonialistic exploitation of Africa and Africans.
First of all, the British prime minister has the nerve to call a sitting President's plan for governance a 'wish' list and it sits well with you, so much so that referenced an adage which is not only scientificaly incorrect but patently moronic.

Then when said President seeks consort with the same powers who have a history of sabotaging African development you not only applaud him, you attempt to chastise those who point out the obvious idiocy of that action?
Europe is NOT our friend, this fact has been constantly butressed by recent history; Thomas Sankara, Ahmed Ben Bella, Gamal Abdel Nasser, Emperor Haille Selassie

Even though the slave trade and colonial era has passed, these people mean to keep us in chains, economically.

Buhari is clearly seting himself up as a puppet for the world powers, what good ever came of that?

P.S:Frankly , the fact that your comment got 48 'likes' is one of the reasons i hardly visit this forum anymore.
