Support The Oodua Republic! By Ifa Dare

Former Australian Prime-Minister, Julia Gillard said the following: "our culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom."

"We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society, learn the language!"

Let's ignore the historical reality of Australia for a minute, and focus on three keywords in the Honorable Gillard's statements above, namely: CULTURE, LANGUAGE, and SOCIETY/LAND.

It's obvious from the statements above that Honorable Gillard fully understands what I call "sovereign triangulation," and she wasn't even trying to be politically correct about it. Sovereign triangulation is the idea that culture, language and society are intrinsically linked, and the three components must be present for sovereignty to be established.

Going by the "sovereign triangulation" idea above, Australia is clearly a Sovereign nation. The society is predominantly English, the dominant culture is English, and the dominant language is English. Can we say the same thing about NGR? Is NGR really a sovereign nation? No! NGR is not a sovereign nation.

For example, the dominant cultures in NGR are: Yoruba, Hausa and Igbo, but the dominant language is English; clearly, there is a mix match between the indigenous culture(s) of the people and the language they've adopted to process their cultural realities - you cannot be sovereign in your own land or society when you use a foreign language to process your socio-cultural reality.

You can't! This is why we encourage Yoruba youths to support the Oodua Republic because the Yorubas, as other national groups, have no sovereignty in the colonial state of NGR. Get this, the sovereignty of an Englishman is in England; the sovereignty of a French man is in France; the sovereignty of a Yoruba man is in Yorubaland; the sovereignty of an Igbo man is in Igboland, and the sovereignty of a Hausa man is in Hausaland.

In conclusion, Yoruba people have no sovereignty inside NGR because the official language of NGR does not match the socio-cultural reality of Yoruba people, and as long as Yoruba people remain under the parasitic unitary system of NGR, sovereignty will continue to elude them.

Support the Oodua Republic!!!
