Craftsmen & Carpenters

Via Flickr:

There is no shortage of talented carpenters and craftsmen in Nigeria. When I needed a table for my studio in Abuja I went to Deidei Lumberyard, there I was able to pick wood from a forest in Ondo State and had my choice of craftsmen right there to build a table with very minimal tools.

To encourage this industry the Nigerian government banned the importation of furniture. A symbolic gesture to appease the poor masses, what are the chances of Akintunde a Danfo driver in Ibadan ordering his new living room furniture from Ikea.

How do you tell the latest big money politician who just had his new castle in Maitama designed by a German/Arab architect, marbles and stones imported from Italy, security doors by American and Israeli companies, appliances and such from South Korea, Japan and Germany. All ideas and materials imported, slave labor courtesy of the Nigerian labor force. The castle is not complete without a Bentley and a Rolls Royce from England to adorn the garages.

How do you tell this dude to have his furniture designed and built in Deidei and not Moda Italian.

In The Name of God

Hundreds are violently murdered in the streets of Nigeria daily based on Islam a religion that was also violently enforced on us. These holy murders largely go unnoticed and covertly sanctioned by the western world. The images of the murder and beheading of a British soldier in broad day light in England was not only shocking but showed the world what Nigerians have been subjected to daily for years in the name of God.

Decades after the Christian Europeans enslaved and slaughtered Africans wholesale in the name of God. Islam has now taken the lead. I think the world is skeptical right about now when we continue to hear the same drumbeat of how peaceful Islam is in reality. The fundamentals of all religions is non-violence, tolerance and humanity

This is what I am saying Islam and Christianity is foreign to us Africans, both religions have been used for centuries to exploit and murder Africans all in the name of their God.

It is time for us Africans to pray to our own God.
