Anywhere in the world you visit today, you will see that Nigeria is negatively talk of the town, they are never known to be good people, even though there are a whole lot of good ones. But on their side, the world believes that the weed of crime bears bitter fruit. They do not care to know Which section of Nigeria you come from, and how many times an indigence of a specific region has been caught in a mischievous act, once “Nigeria” is said, “nothing good comes from criminal schemes”. That would be the final judgement.
“If Africans don’t love Italians, they won’t come to Italy, since there are an infinite number of destination alternatives, even for undocumented immigrants. But it pains me so much that the people we love don’t love us, they optically discern Africans as devils, precisely Nigerians. When a black man greets Italians on the street, they will not respond, when he goes to their church (Catholic) they’ll avoid his sit, they’ll also avoid his sit on a bus. There are lots of black Africans craving on the roads of Italy, they weren’t destined to crave, but it’s due to the situation they find themselves in Italy. The majority of them have great erudition and experience for different kinds of tasks, but because they are black people, the opportunity of working in a company is less. However, It isn’t only Italians which are concerned in this matter, but they appear to be more xenophobic. In Nigeria where I come from, when we see white people, we treat them brotherly, we welcome and protect them even more than we protect ourselves we do the exact same to other of our foreigners that are not white. We’re not doing this because we’re fools, but because we love foreigners. The Bible withal tells us that man was made in the image of God, but it doesn’t inform us that the picture was Black, White, Coloured or whatever. So, I don’t see the reason why there ought to be hatred among us. Whether you are a Christian, Muslim, Hindu or belong to some other religion, God is one, that’s the reason even us his children have to be together as one, it doesn’t matter your colour. So please, stop avoiding Black folks, the colour is natural, It’s Not dirt nor disease”
You see, but now the story has changed, I have now understood where their detestation for the Nigerians comes from. We’re THE CAUSE OF EVERYTHING
However, Cultism used to be considered as a group of people who have a religious or cultural identity, but now, it has become a different religion through developing a radical different theology, (Cannibalism) the killing and eating of another one’s own species. I have never sold nor taken hard drugs before, and I have no intention of doing that until death knocks on my door. I’ve never paid a dime into a prostitute for sexual intercourse since I was born, and I don’t have any intention of doing that until I die. Formerly, I might have naively begged for presents from my loved ones in my youth, therefore, I’d call that “youthful exuberance”, but I have never and will never think of standing on the streets of Italy begging for “cash” whereas I am not handicapped, I am physically and emotionally intact to function, even if it must be in a mortuary, for as long as money comes out from there, I will be compelled to work it. Why? Because I would not want to involve myself in anything that could scandalize my religious affiliation, violates the law governing a state in which I dwell, nor jeopardize my chances of going to HEAVEN.
I ask; has that not change my individuality and character from yours? Is it not obvious that there are still some individuals who try so hard to remain good citizens just for the improvement of their respective societies?
In Italy, Africans especially Nigerians have been involved into cultism, which violates the law of the European union as a whole, their recent mindset is beyond imagination, and the thing concerning them has been tagged on the table, since they’re now viewed as DEVILS than ever. But if you trace the descendants of those law breakers, you would determine that they are always the same people from a particular area of Nigeria, (Edo country).
I ask again; Should you shield someone and he attempts to set your home on fire, what would you do? Can you blame the Italian government for whatsoever actions they may take against the Nigerians? .
I will not blame them, because nobody cuts the finger that feeds him.
You all took risk by traveling to Libya through “Sahara desert” and due to the ongoing persecutions and black slave trading in Libya, you couldn’t stay, you had to take another risk to Italy through the Mediterranean sea, which I describe as “suicidal journey”, fortunately, you arrived in peace and were welcomed by Italians harmoniously, they provide everything you need, let you wait patiently while your documents are on the procedure. Your obligations would have been (giving God the glory) but rather, some of you decide to bring tears into the eyes of their rescuers. Stealing from their supermarkets and killing their innocent citizens for rituals.
You see, that’s the reason I have stopped being angry whenever Italians dismiss my greetings on the road, I’ve stopped being angry whenever they prevent my sit on a public bus, and it does not pain me anymore whenever I go to work for them and they overlabour me as a servant. They do all these because they hate Blacks as a result of our malignities (IF YOU WERE IN THEIR SHOES YOU WOULD DO THE SAME).
I am well determined to tolerate all. . Believing that God will vindicate me one day, because he knows the heart of everyone, he knows the innocent and the guilty. The area I get angry is that we are all known as NIGERIANS. But there’s one thing that people do not understand, Nigeria shouldn’t be viewed as a country, but a continent of FOUR countries, including; (Biafra, Oodua, Rat Removal, Arewa & Middle Belt) they had been partly joined as one from the British. Now, tell me why there shouldn’t be ideological differences.
Characteristically, BIAFRANS aren’t called cultists, drug dealers, prostitutes, beggars and doers of additional violative characters. Rather, we’re known for “Business” we work hard to keep our reputations because Biafrans, especially the “Igbos” love to be admired everywhere they are, so we respect ourselves a lot, also.
In Italy, it is tough to get an Igbo man into cultism, it’s hard to find an Igbo person dealing on hard drugs, it’s hard to get an Igbo woman into prostitution, it is tough to find an Igbo person begging on the street, or even to the few of those who were conscripted into doing all these due to greed, poor association, impatience and stupidity.
Merely to beat the rap, that is to evade punishment and certainty to all Nigerians for any crime committed by Nigerian.
