Malaysia and Anago James Akeem Osho's Journey into Tourism

Mr Gabriel, Miss Funmi and Mr Yinka were exceptional in their dedication to duty.

West African countries adopt new single currency

As West African countries prepare to adopt the new unifying single currency called Eco, i realized that people have different opinion on the matter but for regional unity, development and easy transactions between West African businesses, I support the idea.

It will also help countries with huge inflation. Business will boom drastically as trade or transactions across West will become easy. It will unite the countries and everyone will have a sense of brotherhood.

Eco currency across West Africa will liberate the French speaking countries from the pang and control of France. It is unfortunate that the French speaking African countries don't have their own central bank or reserve, everything is organized from Paris. For many years, France had kicked against French speaking West Africans from been a part of this.

Eco currency is good news and travellers won't think of the hardship of how to change currency from one country to another in West Africa. It saves time and energy.

Abeokuta: Wars and the founding of an an historical town By Anago James Akeem Osho

Abeokuta is an historically important town in Africa. It is located in the South West of Nigeria. It was founded around 1830 by the Yorubas who left the hinterland as a result of the Owu war of 1821-1827. Majority of those who first settled there were the Egbas and other groups like the Owus followed them although at first in small numbers until around 1834, when Sodeke, the head of the town heared that the Owu's are heading toward Whydah to resettle. He met the Owu's whom were the lead characters in the Owu wars to settle down in Abeokuta with them. The Owu leader responded to Sodeke that the IFA oracle instructed them to settle down near a river. And excitingly, Sodeke reminded them of the Ogun river in Abeokuta. They settled down there but some members of the group did not stayed but rather continued their journey to Whydah, hence today just as there are Owu Abeokuta, Owu Kuta, Orile Owu, etc. There is Owu Whydah in today's Republic of Benin. The Owus settled i…

Yoruba Slaves: The biggest numbers taken to the Americas By Anago James Akeem Osho

Yoruba Slaves: The biggest numbers taken to the Americas By Anago James Akeem Osho It is no more news that many enslaved people were stolen away from Africa against their will. The Arabs organized the trans Saharan human chattel trafficking that lasted for about 1,400 years. They were selling enslaved Africans to the Europeans at a time to places like Italy, Spain etc. The Europeans understudied the Arabs and perfected the art of human trafficking that lasted for about 300-400 years. The biggest slave port is not the issue because if the Arabs sold enslaved Africans for about 1,400 years, we should know that it would have been huge. Both East, Central, West and some Southern Africans were devastated by them. Remember the migrations from Egypt, Nubia, etc. to West Africa. Many of our Ancestors were taken from Congo, Angola, Gabon and other places in that region. I don't know why some scholars in their classification of where the enslaved were taken from also classify these pl…
