HATERS PART 2: THE TYPES OF HATERS

YOU SAY YOU HAVE HATERS, YOU ACCUSE OTHERS OF HATING ON YOU, BUT ARE YOU HATER? ARE WONDERING IF SOMEONE IS HATING ON YOU? your answers are here:

There are three types of these haters, namely; (i) the passive hater (ii) the avowed hater and (iii) the merger or conglomerate hater.

The Passive Hater is one who will never come out openly to express their dislike against you. But hey, some way somehow hatred has way of bringing their ass out to the open. One may say, the passive hater is of no use to me, he is cowering and hiding in the hole like a rabbit, and so can’t do shit while he swallows his disaffection. This is entirely not true. The passive hater is the most dangerous in the haters echelon. There is nothing as portentous as not knowing you have an enemy within. These types of haters are difficult to spot, but alas! Some of us are gifted in spotted them, and we have tools in drawing them out of their hole.

The passive hater can be friends, relatives or anyone who has a personal relationship or acquaintance with you. Strangers scarcely make passive haters. Many often a time they bury their disaffection against their victim with a smile, hug and complimentary. They maybe the first to compliment you and speak very highly of your awe; whether beauty, intelligence, talent, riches, project, relationship, ambition, career, etc.
If you were twerking in the middle of a highway, these kind of haters, knowing truly the dangers of you getting knocked down by a speeding vehicle will increase the frequency of their appraisals and flattery and even demand you to keep twerking in the middle of the road that instead of a vehicle knocking you down, they’ll somersault over you. If by chance a speeding vehicle almost knocked you while twerking in the middle of the highway, and you happen to escape getting knocked-down to death by the whiskers, they’ll remark “Don’t mind the bastard driver, he was hating on your ass cos he can’t twerk better than you, doesn’t he know this is a public road?

They may not necessarily lambaste you or show any sign of criticism or disaffection towards you, but meanwhile, the demon is deep buried in their belly, awaiting unleash.
These kinds of haters are very dangerous. If you have an avowed outside enemy, they are the ones that’ll sell-out to them for a pittance and then ask them to keep the change.

Their demons and symptoms gets to be revealed sometime when they display a sudden or strange moodiness around you in the form of silence, distance or maybe a sudden enrage over a very trivial matter of a pipsqueak weight, that under no natural circumstance should warrant such aggravation or outburst of paroxysm. During such outbursts, to spot the passive hater, it is of my counsel that rather than avoid the outburst, it is necessary to press further, for the passive hater meets her moment of truth under circumstances when he/she is under intense irritability from her object of irritation. Most people unknown to them do wonder why certain friends at a time suddenly went on an unnecessary outburst at them over nothing (that is if truly you were not at fault). In a innocent and unsuspecting spirit of friendship, many people do rush to soothe the friend or avoid nasty or unwarranted drama or confrontations, by keeping calm or wondering in awe what manner of irritation befell their friend(s) in a short moment. Unknown to them, they allow a moment of revelation pass them by, and that way the passive hater survives yet another chance into longevity.

Here is an example of a little scenery of what I mean:
Your friend, or whoever has been acting somewhat strange (particularly towards you). You ignore such behavior thinking it’s just one of those days a person do not get to wake-up on the right-side of the bed. Then somehow, you ask her for biro, she responds, saying she is using it when actually she is not using it. Then you ask her whether anything is wrong, she barely waits for you to finish the inquiry to echo “I’m fine. I’m using the biro”. You look away and ignore. Then probably out of chance of mistake you stepped on her beautiful pair of shoes, and to your puzzle, she immediately erupts like an over-ripe volcano. As a good friend you’ll be shocked to see her mad at you at something that simple (which is normally not characteristic of her to act that way), you may quickly try to pacify her, while at the same time wondering what the heck is going on with her. If this opportunity passes you without getting her to reveal her stuff, maybe the next day, she’ll come apologizing over the way she acted previously or she may default to her usual state.
What you should do is this: if your friend is acting one of a kind and then suddenly erupts over the shoe, rather than pacify her, press her. Make remarks like “you’re talking to me this way cos of this stupid shoes of yours?” Or, rather than apologize you can do something more annoying like laugh, giggle or play down on her anger just to irritate her the more. When the build-up of irritation is beyond her pretense or zip-up, she’ll unleash the dragon and say what’s on her mind about you. She might say something like this: “You call my shoes stupid because you think you dress better than everyone else?” “All the time you think the world revolves around you, or you’re like you’re on top of the world” or just anything that may reveal their true irritation towards you. Rather than get angry or respond impulsively to the situation, which may lead to a physical brawl, I owe it to great prudence to withhold such and allow the masquerade dance. Once you’ve destabilized the individual, continue to pester with the vice used; be it giggle, sarcasm, laughter or some antagonizing phrase, and then pause to listen and watch him/her continue to throw-up what has been long buried inside her.

In many cases, the passive hater will regurgitate past invents and long forgotten activities. They may even refer to matters that are not even connected to the subject matter. For an example, if he or she was mad at you for stepping on their shoes, while in the process of revealing their hatred, they may talk about your family members, your car, grade, business, or anything just about unconnected with the issue at hand. Many times they’ll attack your weakest link or bring-out an err you’re guilty of and a misdemeanor you’ve committed in the past. For example if you’re a female and have done an abortion which the passive hater is aware of, in the course of her irritation and moment of truth she is likely to use it against you as a reminder that her shoes do not abortion like you or something really hurtful she knows of you like your past and present relationships, sex escapades, family discrepancy, physical challenge, business woes, your personal fear and just about anything that might be damaging to your psyche or reputation. That is how passive haters get unveiled.

REVERSAL OF PERSPECTIVE: it should be noted that not every friend that acts suddenly angry or moody is a passive hater. Some people do have mood swings and if in the moment of their moodiness you step on them they may act in a very surprising ways that is alien to their characteristic repertoire. This does not mean they are haters or hating on you nor have things button-up their sleeves against you. Also many people may tend to keep distances from a friend based on many reasons which may not include hatred or jealousy on the said friend. People change, friendships gets expired, humans naturally get bored over-time. There are certain people that are in a habit of changing friends from time to time and whenever a certain friendship ceases to be interesting or profitable to them, they may get off the boat to another, this does not mean they were concealed of hatred on the former friendship or any reason whatsoever, it is simply their nature.
This is not say that friends do not have brawls neither do friends not criticize the each other. As a matter of fact true friends would tell you the RAW truth and their honest opinion in
any matter. But the passive hater is one who in a moment of anguish or petty demur goes on the fishing of things to destroy the psyche and reputation of his/her friend. No true friend does that; no true friend advertently or inadvertently seeks to derail and demean the psyche, security, confidence and reputation of a friend and this is what is revealed of the passive hater in moments of anguish and irritation.

Jesus Is Not Alive

JesusIsDead-itunes_0313_sm

Continuation of GOD IS DEAD….

“GOD IS DEAD”, Said the famous German Philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. The assertion threw the religious into tantrums. Why get paranoid when you can easily disprove? Why feel uneasy when you’re on the side of truth? If God was evidential and alive, no one would have opted to declare such. Barrack Obama who is the president of the United States is evidentially alive and there is no argument on his existence. Nobody will come-out to say Obama is dead, when he is right in front your TV screen every day.

Nobody argues about the authenticity of a living thing or a man. The religious struggles so hard to make a case about the reality and authenticity of their God(s). This ought not to be so, for the proof of the existence of a thing is in its glaring existence. The proof of the life of a thing or a being is in its living and breathing. America doesn’t run around to prove that their President is not dead.

When the late Nigerian president Umaru Yar’adua was in a long comatose and near dead status, his relatives and the oligarchy that benefited from his government struggled so hard, running around to prove that he is in fettle. The reason why they did this was because the urge and psychological guilt surrounding his health and consequently the question of his constitutional eligibility to continue in the office of the President had an unbearable weight against them. As such, the natural drive to assuage oneself from cognitive guilt and dissonance was raged.

The fact that the religious runs around shouting “Jesus is alive”, speaks volumes about the eligibility of the life or existence of Jesus. Nobody runs around screaming “GRAVITY IS ALIVE”, neither would anyone see a group of scientists holding a seminar or some crusade tagged “PROTONS, NEUTRONS AND ELECTRONS ARE ALIVE; ACCEPT THEM TODAY”. The fact that Jesus is not here to speak for himself, at least show himself briefly on camera and tape that he is alive, is the reason the religious struggles so hard to prove he is alive or disprove he is not dead. That natural guilt that he is dead has aroused the desire to assert and that he is alive. Nobody runs around to convince people that a person who glaringly exists is alive. I don’t have anyone running around to preach that I am alive. If I am alive, I live and everyone knows that, if I am dead, I need not struggle on that one, for silence, invisibility, and absolute stillness is the property of the dead, and when you make those comparisons to all deities and gods, they fit perfectly into it than a dead man.

HATERS: EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THEM PART 1

Many people are of the view that haters or a hater is one who is doing dismally and unsuccessfully, and because of his failure jinx, he indirectly transfers his aggression of retrogression on individuals who are living contrary to their voodoo predicament.

In order words a hater is one who looks whimsically and vexatiously upon any object be it an individual, group, idea, project that is living and exercising a reality he can only wish for. This definition and view albeit of the popular new school urban thrift of lingua is often informally used to described one who is simply jealous of another.

Contrary to what most people think of a hater as one who is unsuccessful, poor, failing, low class, down-trodden, etc and hating on the progressive, rich, successful, happy, etc, this is in fact not entirely true. A hater can be a rich person, successful person, the perceived happy person, etc who equally envies the success and happiness of another, whether or not the person is doing any lesser successful than them. In order words a status of a hater is not determined or attained by one’s economic status, but rather by one’s mental state, social security and confidence. One may not be rich and will never hate on anyone who is richer, and one may be very rich and still hate on the other man who is not as rich as him. One may ask why would anyone who is rich hate on a poor -ass man? The answer to this question is not singular and the causes of such behavioral discomfort by one who has attain such status against one who is lesser in status to himself is ambiguous and sundry.

There are certain people who, due to psychological uneasiness develop insecurity when they see others doing happily even though they are doing even better than the people in question. Whether sadistic tendency or insecurity in psychological status of such persons are the root cause, but there exist many a great number of such individuals who do not want others to grow and be happy.

They want to be the only iroko tree in the forest, the only goat that is chewing the chord and the only lion that roars. They want to be the idol while others are mere dolls. Such individuals can have up to 30 cars, but when their neighbor, brother, or relative get just one car or a mere motorbike, they start developing malaise and nightmares over the pauper’s pot. These people are equally haters. These kinds of haters, when they see the little poor dude they hate on, they are usually in the business of displaying their affluence whether pretentiously or avowedly in anticipation that the individual will be aroused to bickering, sadness, low self-esteem and most importantly to acknowledge their affluence, hence worship. When the individual happens not to be concerned or moved about their gorilla chest-beating they resort the next move “MIMICRY”. They next thing they do is to point accusing fingers at the individual for hating on them and their success.

The hater is a dissatisfied and insatiable bigot. The only time a real hater is satisfied is when the individual or group or object they abhor is completely decimated to a point of no recovery. Only when their victim is completely eliminated and living their envisage of total pipsqueak, will they be at peace. There is no outside cure for haters; only haters can cure themselves. And the second best and judicious way of dealing with your haters is to totally avoid them and part ways with them and keeping great distance from them. But if he or she is a true hater don’t be surprised if they still snoop around on you trying to run an intel on your well-being. The first and effective way of dealing with a hater is ELIMINATION; however the understanding of the later method might be interpreted, that is entirely to your comprehension not mine.

Hating or haters are not merely created because of economical factor but rather is more or less of a psychological factors. It might be seen that a rich man who has many mistresses and girlfriends under his command will hate on another man who is not half his worth, solely on the grounds that the man is married to a woman he wishes to have his bed.

Haters are everywhere; they are not found wanting in any social organization and activities, be at work, family, government, interest groups, social functions, and just about anywhere and everywhere. In the office he could be a senior colleague who is insecure and hating on his junior worker merely on the grounds that the individual is competent, skilful, out-spoken and thus a threat to his office and positions. Also, a superior at work or in any organization might be hated by his team and co workers due to many reasons; it could be of pride, success, age (many times people are not at ease when someone younger them occupies a position of authority and command over them), background, feats, etc. People who tend to be very skilful and talented when so much admiration and panegyrics assigned to their work, talent, office et are more likely to attract haters in the same line, place and social enclave they function. In personal relationships and smaller social circles like friends and acquaintances it is very much abound, because different people with different mentality, psychology, understanding, temperaments are fused together. These individuals are often different internally even though they may share the same views, opinions, dreams and ambitions. Their internal differences is due to their sundry backgrounds, upbringing and orientations which turns out to determine their fears, insecurity, fantasies, hopes, envisage of things.
On the other hand, there are certain people that will never like you no matter what you may do; whether you’ve hurt them or not, whether you’re anymore skilful and successful than them. These kinds of haters I call them HATERS PENUMBRA.

100 YEARS A FRAUD: THE METAMORPHOSIS OF A TICKING TIME BOMB (NIGERIA) PART 3

PART 3: THE NORTH NEVER WANTED NIGERIA TO BE CREATED

After the expiration of the Richards constitution, Bernard Bourdillon, who was Governor General of Nigeria between 1935 and 1943, brought some modifications into the Clifford constitution which later became the foundation of the 1946 constitution. His aim was to unite the North and South in a unitary legislative council in Lagos; however, the Northern leaders rejected such move. Since they were British subjects, they had later or no choice in determining their affairs.

On 1st April, 1953, Anthony Enahoro, a member of the Action Group from the Western Region, moved a motion that the House of Representatives accept “as a primary political objective the attainment of self-government for Nigeria in 1956.” Members from the Northern region objected to the motion, as such, there was division in the assembly.

Ahmadu Bello suggested to the House that the motion be modified and read to the house and accepted as “as a primary political objective the attainment of self-government for Nigeria ‘AS SOON AS PRACTICABLE.’ Another Northern member of the House afterwards moved a motion for adjournment, a move which did not go down well with the AG members. On sighting that, the members of the Action Group in the council protested and resigned. They were: bode Thomas, S. L Akintola, Arthur Prest and Adesoji Aderemi. Since there was no replacement for the Action Group members that resigned, Ahmadu Bello’s suggested amendment was passed. The Northern members were confronted by angry mobs in Lagos who lambasted them and called them all sorts of names. These embittered the Northerners greatly.

On May 16, 1953, when S. L. Akintola led a delegation to the Northern region to campaign for self-succession, a riot broke-out between the Northerners and the Southerners who were mainly Yorubas and Ibos. The riot which lasted for 4 days claimed many lives of Southerners in the North and over 250 people were injured. This was the beginning of the manifestation of a bloody union and deadly years of coercion ahead. This should have served as a lesson to us and the colonialists but they still insisted on the forceful coercion of this union. We never learn and we still refuse to.

Seeing this, the Northern leaders realized that the Nigerian union was irreconcilable and fatal; they Northerners on May 1953 in a meeting held in Kaduna sought for secession and the adoption of an 8 point program:
– THAT EACH REGION SHOULD HAVE ITS OWN LEGISLATIVE AND EXECUTIVE AUTONOMY IN ALL MATTERS EXCEPT DEFENSE, EXTERNAL AFFAIRS, CUSTOMS AND CERTAIN RESEARCH INSTITUTES.
– THAT THERE SHOULD BE NO CENTRAL LEGISLATURE OR CENTRAL EXECUTIVE FOR THE ENTIRE NIGERIA
– THAT A NON-POLITICAL BODY SHOULD CONSTITUTE A CENTRAL AGENCY FOR THE COUNTRY TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR MATTERS NOT ALLOCATED TO THE REGIONS
– THAT THE CENTRAL AGENCY SHOULD OPERATE FROM A NEUTRAL TERRITORY, PREFERABLY LAGOS.
– THAT THE COMPOSITION OF THE CENTRAL AGENCY BE DEFINED BY THE LAW ESTABLISHING IT
– THAT RAILWAYS, AIR SERVICES, PORTS, ELECTRICITY, POSTS AND TELEGRAPHS AND COAL MINING BE REORGANIZED AND BE ADMINISTERED BY PUBLIC CORPORATIONS
– THAT ALL REVENUE EXCEPT CUSTOM DUTIES BE LEVIED AND COLLECTED BU THE REGIONS, AND THAT THE ADMINISTRATION OF THE CUSTOMS BE ORGANIZED IN SUCH A WAY AS TO ENSURE THAT GOODS FOR EACH REGION WERE SEPARATELY CLEARED AND CHARGED TO DUTY
– THAT EACH REGION SHOULD HAVE ITS OWN SEPARATE PUBLIC SERVICE.

In July 1953, the Secretary of State for Colonies, Oliver Lyttleton presided over a conference in London where the Nigerian political leaders from all regions were invited. The Northerners declined from attending the conference but after constant pressure from the Colonialist they gave in. It should be noted that the Northerners had no choice but to give in to the pressure of their colonial masters who at the time were dictators. If it were to be in normal circumstances of free will, the Northerners at that time would have completely opted from the conference and the Nigerian union. Even Lyttleton himself after watching the drama that unfold at the conference, remarked that “IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR THESE PEOPLE TO COEXIST AS ONE ENTITY”.

At the London conference, the Northerners were forced to abandon their eight point agenda and secession which would have turned Nigeria to a confederation state or simply a custom union. Another opportunity that we would have made things right was simply thrown away into the garbage can and today, we are paying the price.

The conference which began in London continued in Lagos in 1954. Under the dictates of Oliver Lyttleton, a constitution was adopted which is called “THE LYTTLETON CONSTITUTION”, and in that constitution, the Action Group requested that the right of regions to secede should not be recognized. True to their bidding, the Lyttleton constitution granted their request.

100 YEARS A FRAUD: THE METAMORPHOSIS OF A TICKING TIME BOMB (NIGERIA) PART 2

PART 2: THE MANIFESTATION OF TRIBALISM AND SECTIONALISM

Nigeria’s struggle of self-government and freedom from colonialism and slavery from Western imperialism could be traced back to notable figures that resisted the encroachment of their sovereignty by the British. They include King Masaba of Nupeland, King Jaja of Okpobo, Nana Olomu of Itsekiri-land, Oba Ovonramwem of Benin, etc. However, these pockets of resistance were squashed brutally by the British force. And after consolidating their hold their hold on the various parts of the territory, then came the amalgamation.

Before the amalgamation, the Northern and southern areas were lumped together in 1898 and Christened “NIGERIA”, by a former correspondent of THE TIMES by name Flora Shaw who later became Lord Lugard’s wife. Lord Lugard established a Nigerian Council which was meant to act as an advisory body to the governor general, however, they had no authority and their resolutions had no bidding of the law. The council consisted of 36 members, and 23 of them were Europeans, while the other 13 were referred to as “NON-FFICIAL MEMBERS” (of which 7 of them were Europeans and 6 Nigerians). The 6 Nigerian non-official members were: 2 Emirs from the North, the Alaafin of Oyo and one member each from Calabar, Benin- Warri area. This was the foundation of inequality in Nigeria.

In March, 1920, Joseph Casely-Hayford , a Gold coast lawyer and a Nigerian Physician by name Dr. Akinwade Savage, formed the NATIONAL CONGRESS OF BRITISH WEST AFRICA (NCBWA). At the inaugural conference, delegates from Gambia, Sierra-Leone, and the Gold Coast (now Ghana) were represented. The conference made five demands on the secretary of State for the Colonies:
– That a University be established in west Africa
– The racial discrimination in the territories must be removed
– The judiciary must be independent of colonial influence
– The creation of a legislative council in each British west African territories and half of the council members must be Africans
– The west African chiefs be subject to their people through appointment and removal

However, when their demands were taken to the British by a team of delegation, they were badly treated and snubbed by the Colonial secretary Lord Milner. In 1922 through the Clifford constitution, the legislative council was modified and 4 of the unofficial members were to be elected; 3 from Lagos and 1 representing Calabar.

Despite the scorn at NCBWA’s demand for a University, the persistence of these individuals led to the approval of the establishment of a university college in Ibadan which became the University college of Ibadan in 1948.

The Clifford constitution was established and it made way for the creation of NNDP a political party organized by Herbert Macaulay to contest the Lagos seats. As the leadership of the NNDP got older, they were challenged by the youthful politicians who were led by Dr JC Vaughan, Ernest Ikoli, H. O. Davies and Samuel Akinsanya, this brawl in the party led to the formation of NYM (Nigeria Youth Movement). A year later, the NYM was joined by Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe who had transferred his journalism business from Ghana to Nigeria. Later on Chief Obafemi Awolowo, joined, then others like Dr. Kofo Abayomi, Hamzat Subair, O. Caxton martins, Jubril Martins, Paul Cardoso, S. l Akintola, sir Bank Anthony, etc joined. It became the first nationalist party.
The NYM was short-lived after another brawl broke out between Okoli and Akinsanya. The brawl began when Dr Kofo Abayomi resigned his seat at the Legislative council; the problem was on finding his successor. The endorsement of Ikoli by NYM’s executive angered a faction of the party who accused them of ANTI-IJEBU schemes among the Lagosian members of the party. This led to the defection of Nnamdi Azikiwe, Obafemi Awolowo and many others. Ethnic sentiments began a long time ago.

Herbert Macaulay and Nnamdi Azikiwe teamed up to form the NCNC as a result the colonial ill-treatment of the King’s college boys in 1944 which led to a protest by the students. 75 students were charged to court by the colonialists, 8 of them were forcibly conscripted to join the British army who were battling at the World War. It was this reaction that angered to the formation of the NCNC whose ultimate aim was to raise money for the founding of a national school and set-up a national committee to protect Nigerian students in colonial schools. It was firstly called the national Council of Nigeria but the enrollment of some Cameroonians led to the modification of the name as NATIONAL COUNCIL OF NIGERIA AND THE CAMEROONS (NCNC).

Awolowo and a host of Yorubas formed EGBE OMO ODUDUWA in London, 1945 as a cultural organization. However, it was transformed into a political party, THE ACTION GROUP (AG) in other to contest the regional elections in 1951.

Similarly, the North formed a cultural organization called JAAMAR MUTANEN AREWA, founded by Dr. R.A.B. Dikko and it later became a political party called the Northern People’s Congress (NPC). Ahmadu Bello, Tafewa Balewa were among the founding members. Mallam Aminu Kano equally founded same but left afterwards citing that the party was too “conservative” for his liking. He joined the Northern Elements Progressive Union (NEPU), which was founded by eight radically minded northerners.

This was the beginning of the manifestation of sectionalism and regionalism, but it was ignored and given a blind-eye to.

PART 3:THE NORTHERNERS NEVER WANTED NIGERIA TO BE CREATED…….

100 YEARS A FRAUD: THE METAMORPHOSIS OF A TICKING TIME BOMB (NIGERIA)

PART 1: THE BEGINNING OF THE FRAUDULENT FIEFDOM

It is of great prudence that the earlier we tell ourselves the truth in this country called Nigeria, the imminent our salvation. After recent tensions in the political atmosphere, it was glaring that that the volcano was getting warmed up, as such a sovereign national conference was demanded to negotiate the myriad tentacles demonizing the nation. In a very disappointing move, the government, took away the sovereignty part and organized a national conference, which is very habitual of the country to continually lie to itself that there is unity among then. Before the conference was converged, the president was apt to say that the unity and continuity of the existence of the Nigeria State was out of the table, and just before anything can come-out from the conference, the bombs came lashing, and this should wake us from our slumber to the reality that this nation cannot peacefully coexist. First all, let’s get out mind through the timeline of history to see how came about this coerced nation:
Once upon a time, there was no nation like NIGERIA, but there were Ibos, Yorubas, Hausas, Fulanis, Ibibios, Efiks, and a lot others, and most importantly, there was peace. There were established system of governments, the tribal entities were all happy and minding their businesses. But meanwhile, somewhere in Europe at the Berlin conference of 1884 and 1885, The Europeans were busy sharing and portioning West Africa between themselves; France, Britain, Germany, Portugal allotted land masses and colonies in their desire to conquer, loot and rule. This was the beginning of the tragedy we face today. The dehumanization and destruction of lives, Culture, identity, and above all mentality of the African as a whole is still lingering and we are yet to awake from such historic calumny.

On 27 December 1851, the British secretary Beecroft, instructed the British Consul for the “BIGHTS OF BENIN AND BIAFRA” (PLEASE NOTE THE NAMES OF THESE PLACES BEFORE THE CREATION OF NIGERIA) to attack Lagos. The king of Lagos, Kosoko was outlawed and Akitoye replaced him because he was willing to accept the British rule, thus Lagos was the first area the British occupied in Nigeria after a treaty between Akitoye and the British was signed on the protection of missionaries, bilateral trade, etc on 1 January, 1852. And on August 6, 1861, Lagos became the possession of the British and a colony in 1862.

Like a wild fire, the British spread their conquest to other spheres. Treaties were signed, wars were fought, prisoners/slaves were taken, blood was spilled and lives were destroyed. Not until 1914 amalgamation by Lord Lugard, territories were administered separately and distinctly and not as a single country. Different policies and modus operandi were employed in different territories. The southern territories saw direct rule while the North had the indirect rule system. After the amalgamation in 1914, the indirect rule system was introduced in all parts of the territories.

However, before the amalgamation, the British tried different methods to establish a relationship between the North and the South, but it failed, due to the cultural and orientation differences between the ethnicities. Nigeria is merely a forceful coercion of sundry Geographical entities and ethnic groups; it is a forceful experimentation of geographical expressions. The first step of this experiment began on the 1st of May, 1906 when the British merged the Colony of Lagos with southern protectorate. At that time, citizens or individuals occupying the colony and protectorates were called a BRITISH SUBJECT or CITIZEN OF THE COLONY and PROTECTORATE
