Just What Is Wrong With The Black Man? – By Mike Ozekhome



- Advertisement -




I am a Nigerian, & Nigeria is my country. I have no place else on earth to call home except Nigeria. If Nigeria fails, I fail. If Nigeria succeeds, I will be exalted amongst nations. Therefore I must do whatever it takes, beyond the limits of my natural abilities, to ensure this Nigeria does not fail. I will do my bit, and ensure everyone else around me do theirs. I will not be an agent of division or subversion, because in so doing I hurt not others but my myself. I will support my government to enable them have the courage to always do what is right, and where I feel they are failing, I will make my voice heard, not to ridicule or abuse, but to proffer better alternatives. I believe that the labours of our heroes past shall never be in vain, and I also believe that the pains I feel today are sacrifices being made for Nigeria to rise again because only God annoints leaders and Nigeria is a blessed country…this is my stand, and may God give me the courage to always stand for what is right at all times. Amen – President Muhammad Buhari. Beautiful speech!

But even at this, the joke circulating online trust Nigerians’ creativity is when will PMB come and visit Nigeria. This is because he has visited about 24 Countries in just 9 Months (300 Days) in office. The President has over travelled. Let him sit back and solve Nigeria’s problems. He has so far visited 1) Niger Republic (May 2015), 2) CHAD (June 2015), 3) Germany (June 2015), 4) South Africa (June 2015), 5) United Kingdom (May 2015), 6) USA (July 2015), 7) Benin Republic (August 2015), 8) France (September 2015), 9) Ghana (September 2015), 10) India (October 2015), 11) Sudan (October 2015), 12) Iran (November 2015), 13) France (November 2015), 14) USA (November 2015), 15) South Africa (December 2015), 16) Benin Rep. (December 2015), 17) UAE (January 2016), 18) Kenya (January 2016), 19) Ethiopia (January 2016), 20) France (February 2016), 21) United Kingdom (February 2016), 22) Egypt (February 2016), 23) Saudi Arabia (Februay 2016), 24) Qatar (February 2016).




Inspite of pre-historic evidence from the time of early man, australopithecus, that life started with the black man, he still lags behind in everything. Africa, once regarded as the “dark continent” has not done much to obliterate the tag. Nigeria, the giant of Africa, is still in a deep slumber.

Thus, the historical and demeaning speech once made by former South African President P.W Botha, to his cabinet about 27 years ago. It was reprinted by David G Mailu for the Sunday Times, a South African newspaper, in 1985.

Hear Botha:

We are not obliged even the least to try to prove to anybody and to the blacks that we are superior people. We have demonstrated that to the blacks in 1001 ways. The Republic of South Africa that we know of today has not been created by wishful thinking. We have created it at the expense of

intelligence, sweat and blood We do not pretend like other whites that we like the blacks.

The fact that, blacks look like human beings and act like human beings do not necessarily make them sensible human beings. Hedgehogs are not porcupines and lizards are not crocodiles because they look alike. If God had wanted us to be equal to the blacks, he would have created us all of a uniform colour and intellect.

But he created us differently: Whites, Blacks, Yellow, Rulers and the ruled. Intellectually, we are superior to the Blacks that have been proven beyond any reasonable doubt over the years. I believe that the Afrikaner is honest, God fearing person, who has demonstrated practically the right way of being. By now every one of us has seen it practically, that the Blacks cannot rule themselves.

Give them guns and they will kill each other. They are good in nothing else but making noise, dancing, marrying many wives and indulging in sex. Let us all accept that the Blackman is a symbol of poverty, mental inferiority, laziness and emotional incompetence. Isnt it plausible?

Therefore that the Whiteman is created to rule the Blackman And here is a creature (Blackman) that lacks foresight The average Black does not plan his life beyond a year.

*So, compatriots, tell me what has changed in Nigeria & SA to prove this man wrong after 27yrs.



This story was taken online. It is not mine. But, it is thought provoking.

Mr David Ahmed Okoro started the day early, having set his alarm clock (MADE IN FINLAND) for 6am. While his teapot (MADE IN CHINA) was perking, he shaved with his clipper (MADE IN HONG KONG). He put on his shirt (MADE IN THE UK), and designer jeans (MADE IN ITALY) and shoes (MADE IN THE USA).

After cooking his breakfast in his new electric cooker (MADE IN INDIA) he sat down with his calculator (MADE IN MEXICO) to see how much he could spend today. After setting his wristwatch (MADE IN TAIWAN) to his radio (MADE IN VIETNAM) he got in his car (MADE IN GERMANY) filled with petrol imported from (SAUDI ARABIA) and continued his search for a good paying NIGERIAN job…

At the end of yet another discouraging and fruitless day checking his computer (MADE IN MALAYSIA), Mr David Ahmed Okoro decided to relax for a while. He put on his slippers (MADE IN BRAZIL) poured himself a glass of wine (MADE IN SOUTH AFRICA), while fiddling with his mobile phone (MADE IN SOUTH KOREA), and then wondered why he can’t find a good paying job in… NIGERIA.

He felt achy and sore in his left kneel, he decided to take one tablet of his TRAMADOL TABLETS (MADE IN BANGLADESH) to relieve the pain. Lying down on his bed and wondering why NIGERIAN External Foreign Reserve has depleted to under $ 28billion which has translated to free fall depreciation of Nigerian NAIRA to US DOLLAR at PARALLEL MARKET…….

Fellow Nigerians, let’s us start producing, let us start buying made in NIGERIA goods If our economy is to grow and create better jobs.

How can a country like Nigeria be importing toothpick, cutting bud, cotton wool, matches, rubber band e.t.c? And we complain at d same time that there is no jobs for our teeming youths?

The situation is even pathetic now when you see Nigerians (in Lagos) prefer Cotonou garri to that of Ijebu, buy cotonou pineapple and they say it is better than that of Nigeria. That is why frozen foods will be exported to Cotonou from farms like that of obasanjo repacked and imported back to Nigeria because they know Nigerians always prefer made in outside Nigeria goods .

That is why you will see an expatriate renumeration will be juicy than that of his Nigeria counterpart even if that Nigerian is more certificated than d expatriate (This also happen in government parastatals).

Any nation that import majorly foreign made goods/ services rather than producing their own are hurting its people….

When we keep importing foreign made products into Nigeria, we keep importing poverty into our country and exporting jobs abroad…

Let’s go back to the land to grow and patronise MADE IN NIGERIA products…

I cannot agree more with the above postulations.
