Boko Haram is the real devil in Africa

28 August 2014, 10:04 Onyeji Dominic

There are certain things about writing that are not known to most people in Africa due to massive ignorance and bad living conditions in the continent. The things are simple but the people failed to know them due to lack of understanding and absence of wisdom in general. This is true because educational system has remained in shamble for too long especially in Nigeria - the so-call giant of Africa.

As a matter of fact, we do not need to throw blames at anybody. I mean the retarded condition of Africa is a thing of mind which is under control of nature and forces. It is true that we are highly gifted in life. We can really do all things because the Supernatural potentials (endowments) are embedded for us to do wonders under the Sun. There is zero impossibility for us - one people. All things are possible but the means are not there for everybody to stir the possibilities out of "us" in reality. We possess the abilities, and "we" as one-entity is truly willing to move forward.

The people do not have to throw blame at any individual or person. It is evident that we are not really the problem of Africa, and it is equally clear that the gods and forces are not to blame. What we really need is "change" for good and progress in the retarded continent. If we ask me, I will say that the change cannot come without light. This is true because the continent is down in downhill due to backwardness, mental darkness and social negligence. It means that the general problems of Biafra and Africa at large are caused by absence of light or illumination. Insight told the wise that the challenges are produced by massive ignorance and pseudo-mindsets which the white created indirectly for exploitation of our lands and material resources under the Sun.

The social problems have given most the people to know little or nothing about insightful writing. That is why Africans are not generally good in creativity and wisdom. Our writings on social media show that we lack ability to apply knowledge due to mental blindness or lack of illumination in jungle. That is why I have deemed it good to explain one or two terms here for the general public. The terms are generally known as figurative. They include personification, metaphor, simile, etc.

1. PERSONIFICATION: I do not really have to give any explanation but let me just say that I was with the wise lately in realism. They told me that the major problem of Biafrans is that "all-hands" are not on desk because the people are not one in anyway. If I may ask! What is "all-hands"? I mean the people are not one. Why? If we ask me, I will ask us to go and read one of my articles titled "WE IS GOD AT WORK". I said it there that Biafra can never be liberated without one-people with many hands. It means that Biafra is "person" with many hands in mind, and the term "hands" is known to the wise as personification.

Furthermore, it is not wrong if I say that Bible is full of personifications. Truth is that wise men cannot do without figurative in writing. Every historic book like Bible and Koran was written by the wise, and there was no way they could do without figurative in the insightful writings. It means that scriptural terms like Jesus, God, Devil and Job are mere personifications in stories of Bible.

To cut the matter short, let us remember that story is story and writing is writing. I have said it severally that things like writing and songs are Language of souls, gods and forces. Men talk in speech while souls and forces talk in writing. That is why writers and musicians cannot do without inspiration.

What I am saying in essence is the Jesus, God, Devil and Job are things of mind. We were told in Bible that Jesus is light of the world. It means that anything that gives light to man is Jesus in reality. He is known to the wise as illumination in Supernatural. The term "illumination" is light in mind, dream or fantasy world. It shines in "us" when we are deeply given to sound knowledge under the Sun. It is the sound knowledge that helps us to "manufacture", make or produce real light in real world. It means that candle, lantern, electric bulb and the likes are Jesus in reality.

The same thing applies to God, Devil, Job and what have you. If we ask me, I will ask us to go and read one of my articles titled "GOD IS PEOPLE WORKING TOGETHER". I said it there that God is one-people. It means that European Union is God in Bible. This is true because it was Europeans that brought Bible to us in Africa.

In addition, I don't have to tell us that Boko Haram is sponsored by European Union. It is not news. What I have to say is that Boko Haram is real Devil in Africa. It is evident that both are real pals just like God and Devil who conspired to destroy the "innocent" Job in Bible. I mean it is known to us that European Union and Boko Haram are working hand in glove against Biafra. It implies that Biafra is Job
