According to the internet trends in the last few years, international dating sites have experienced a considerable increase in the number of Nigerian girls looking to meet men online. This is because most Nigerian women are seeing North American and Western European men as very successful and handsome people who can offer them a better life. If you are a male person living outside of Nigeria but you want to meet and date some of these ladies, here are a few simple but very effective tips for you.
Unfortunately, most of the Nigerian dating sites are aimed at people who live in this country. Therefore, unless you speak their language, any of these sites would be useless to you.
However, the numerous Nigerian girls who are looking for foreign men will join the biggest international dating sites. This is why you should join an international dating community too. There are several sites that have millions and millions of members from all around the world, and a considerable part of them are Nigerian women.
Once you have joined one of these dating communities, all you have to do is head over to the browse section and Search for Nigerian girls. You can narrow your search and only see the women from a specific country or area, such as Africa or Nigeria only. Then you will be able to freely send fiend invitations, instant messages or emails. The instant messages are definitely the most effective if you want to chat with a Nigerian girl in real time.
Even though not many people are aware of this, the largest International dating sites are now using profile matching technology. This means that all the information you enter in your profile will be used to match you with other people that you might be interested in. Moreover, your profile will be automatically sent to the people you are matching the most.
With this in mind, all you need to do is write in your profile that you wish to get in touch with Nigerian women looking for men. Most dating sites will send your profile to these girls within just a few hours of joining the community.
In conclusion, remember that you do not have to join a Nigerian dating service to meet girls from this country. Since the internet is very popular in this African country, there are many women who are using their webcams and microphones to chat with foreign men on International dating websites, where you do not even have to pay anything to get inside a huge online community.
There are many African women scattered in most countries in the world. A considerable number of them are very attractive especially when it comes to the hot Nigerian girls. Nigeria is a diverse country which has several different cultures and different types of girls. The country largely interacts with the rest of the world and that is why many men all over the world may have already interacted with Nigerian ladies.
Nigerian girls are very desirable and that’s mostly because of their magnificent physique, charisma and exemplary behavior. If you are a man and you know a hot Nigerian girl, then you must be wondering how you can get her to date you. For most people, the little knowledge they have on African girls discourages them from making a move on the ladies.
To effectually date a particular group of girls, one must have a wide knowledge on the expectations and preferences of those girls in regards to their partners.
Dating hot Nigerian girls is simple, just like it is when it comes to other ladies in the world. Every lady hopes to meet that one Prince Charming, fall in love, get married and live ‘happily ever after’. Therefore men are assigned the task of proving to be the princes so as to win the girls’ hearts. Nigerian ladies hope to meet the men of their dreams too. All you have to do to date a Nigerian girl is prove to have the qualities she would want in the ‘man of her dreams’.
This task however, should not be blindly done. One has to effectively plan on the relevant strategies on how to approach the Nigerian girl. The first and most crucial planning aspect is to understand the particular qualities that Nigerian girls desire in men. The Nigerian culture is slightly different compared to Western cultures.
Cultural Differences When Dating Nigerian Women
For Nigerians, the man is usually considered as the head and most significant member in a family. He is supposed to be the protector of the family. In observance to this cultural aspect, the hot Nigerian girls look for men who fit this description. Unlike other girls who are attracted by money and a lavish lifestyle, Nigerian ladies are interested in men who seem to be strong, commanding and would be perfect husbands.
Another important aspect when it comes to dating Nigerian girls is responsibility. A Nigerian girl will only fall in live with a who has proven to be responsible enough. Unlike what most men may think, money and wealth is not a clear indication of responsibility.
A Nigerian lady wants a man who will protect her and has the ability to adequately provide for his future family. Additionally, he has to be good in solving different problems and be an excellent comforter during trying times.
It is also crucial to have a respectable and admirable attitude when approaching a Nigerian lady. Hot Nigerian girls are very good in accurately assessing a man’s attitude. If you approach such a girl without exuding confidence, chances are that she will reject you. Confidence should not necessarily be linked to one’s looks. Someone who is not very good looking has a chance of attracting Nigerian girls if he is very confident when approaching and talking to them.
The best time for a girl to assess man’s attitude is during the time he approaches her. The approach you use will help a girl in deciding whether you seem to be a good husband material or not. One should adequately adjust his attitude to suit that of a man who is interested in a girl for a long term relationship.
It is also important to always focus on keeping the conversations positive. Finally, it pays to occasionally flatter a Nigerian girl. One should however keep the flatters minimal and avoid overdoing them.
Therefore, it is easy to make a move on hot Nigerian girls. All one has to do to win their hearts is develop his personality to fit these expectations. Once you do so, you will be very pleased to find out how accomodative and loving they are.

Nigerian Dating Questions:
How can I ask a question with a picture attached.? I am trying to find out if anyone knows the man.?
The picture I want to use in my question was used by a Nigerian scammer in the imfamous Romance Scams going on at the Nigerian dating sites.
It would be nice if this man could know that his picture is used for this purpose. Most scamers will use the pictures from model sites. These models need to know that they are being used for these scams.
The only way that I know of that you can do this is to post an external link. However, many people [such as myself] will not click on links in questions, since there are so many viruses around.
R KELLY THRILLS NIGERIANS
The Nigerian Media continues to thrive through various media houses. One of such is This Day News paper.
In the last few years they have continued to mesmerize Nigerians with their classic style of celebrating the annual This Day music festival, featuring Artists like Lionel Richie, Lemar and Diana Ross.
This year’s Festival was no exception. Sponsored by Arise Magazine and This Day News paper, the 2009 This Day Music Festival which featured Robert Sylvester Kelly, popularly known as -Kelly was such a phenomenon. The first leg kick started in South-Africa at the inaugural Arise Africa Fashion Awards before the two concerts in Sun City View in Johannesburg and Royal Grand Casino in Cape Town. The train later touched down in Nigeria. There was a command performance at the Federal Place Hotel on July 3 with the attendant concert at the Tafawa Balewa Square in Victoria Island Lagos on July 4.
The ladies couldn’t help screaming, as the guys whistled, howled, and hailed him, chorusing along his ever green songs. There is not an iota of doubt that R-Kelly charged the crowd at the Tafawa Balewa Square in Lagos on Saturday July 4 with his electrifying stage performance.
He is indeed a crowd puller; a show stopper and a great singer with a good stage craft worth emulating. He simply wowed the entire crowd with his magnificent performance.
Before now, the mere thought of having this great singer come to Nigeria or any other African country for that matter was like a tall dream. This was because it was rumoured that he had a flight phobia. Now how the organizers managed to pull this off remains a puzzle. At last, R. Kelly made it to Africa and even performed in two African countries, Nigeria and South-Africa, in five different concerts. Two shows in South-Africa and three in Nigeria
I’m happy to be in Africa. It is something I have longed for in a long time now. I am glad that I’m here but you guys made it happen”. Those were the words of R-Kelly when he addressed his fans in Lagos.
There is no denying the fact that he deserved all the warm reception and accolades that was showered on him it was actually a long and patient wait. So many accounts of events happened at the show. There wsa the account of a girl and a particular fine gentleman almost abandoned his girlfriend for her un-controllable emotions for R. Kelly. “Yes, I love you. I’ll follow you to America. I’ve missed you, I can’t wait to be with you” she yelled. The girl who was later identified as Linda continued her yearning in the presence of the guy who was initially condoning her but when he couldn’t bear it anymore; he had to walk out on her. She didn’t even seem a bit bothered until after the show when it dawned on her that he had abandoned her. Wondering how the saga ended? She was fortunate to have sighted him afar, she was later seen running after the guy and apologising all the way. So many other unaccounted details and experiences transpired during the show.
The concert at the TBS surely brought R-Kelly closer to his fans. He spent like an hour on stage and still couldn’t do justice performing the repertoire of great hits in his catalogue despite the fact that he didn’t perform the full tracks. He performed tracks like ‘I Wish, Gigolo, Happy People, Ignition, Fiesta, Your Body’s Calling, Bump n Grind, Step in the Name of Love, 12 Plays and many more. He later unbuttoned his shirt to unveil the monogrammed image of the late king of pop music, Michael Jackson, on a black inner T-shirt while he performed the Jackson’s famous ‘I Will Be There’ as a tribute to the legend who he confessed had inspired him tremendously. He capped it with a soulful rendition of ‘You Are Not Alone’ a song he co-wrote and produced with the late super star.
Despite the threatening rain on that fateful day, revelers still made their way to the TBS. They were trickling into the venue in their ones and twos till 11pm that evening.
Fully backed by a world class live band and back-up singers, the R& B king made the show quite a memorable one for all who were present. Some ladies shed tears when he made to leave the stage.
The story of R-Kelly is such an inspiring one. He might not have believed he would have been where he is today. He was raised by a single parent and growing up wasn’t easy.
Why are there so many Nigerian princesses?
There are 6 Nigerian girls at my school, all who say they’re technically considered princesses. One of them was saying that simply walking by a princess in Nigeria makes you a princess as well.
So what exactly are the qualifications to become a Nigerian princess? And if it’s so easy, isn’t every woman in Nigeria a princess?
Funny you should mention it, I received an email from one just the other day. Her uncle had left her fifty three gazillion pounds, and it’s mine, all mine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A Short History on African Film
During the Golden Age of Hollywood when some of the best masterpieces in motion picture history were being made, African filmmakers were not allowed to participate in making films. The era which lasted from the end of the silent period in the late 1920′s to the late 1950′s did not see a single film produced by an African director.
In fact, all of the early films that were composed by African filmmakers were not filmed in Africa. It was not until the 1960′s and 70′s that African directors broke free from their chains’ and started to make works of their own.
The reason that African filmmakers were denied the right to produce their own films in the early days was because many African countries were suffering under colonialism. European countries like France and Europe strictly prohibited Africans from producing their own films for fear that they would communicate to the world the horrible oppression they were suffering under colonialism.
As we mentioned, it was not until these countries achieved independence that their writers and artists could finally speak out. Before their independence, during the colonial era, most films about Africa were produced by Western filmmakers. These directors, most if not all of whom had never ever visited Africa, often showcased Africa as a wild land inhabited by wild beasts and savages. That is one of the reasons why Africa came to be known as the Dark Continent. And even though they knew almost nothing about Africa, it did not stop them from perpetuating baseless and unfounded myths and stereotypes about the land. Some of the most watched early films about Africa where: The African Queen, Tarzan, and King Solomon’s Mines.
Most African writers and directors were appalled by these early images and stereotypes that were being produced by non-Africans about Africa. This would serve as motivation for the first generation of artists who would achieve success after independence. Though few anti-colonial films were produced before independence and absolutely none were produced by African filmmakers in Africa.
At the end of colonization, everything changed. The first African motion picture to gain international acclaim was La Noire de (Black Girl). It was written and directed by Sembene, who hailed from Senegal and is still considered the father of African Cinema. Because mainly of his success, the African country of Senegal would be designated the unofficial capital country of African film making for decades.
Then in 1969, the African film festival (FESPACO) was established and gave a new forum to many talented African writers and directors. That same year the Federation of African Filmmakers came into being and created production and distribution networks that allowed African film to reach the masses.
Many of these early films dealt with subjects like colonialism and were therefore highly controversial. In fact, a number of them were banned for decades in former colonial powers like France. Nowadays many African films focus on the power and influence of tradition in African life. It is not uncommon or unheard off for an African film to address the role of women in traditional African communities and cities. But regardless of the subject been discussed, it is a huge relief to know that films about Africa are now being produced by Africans.
I met a girl on Yahoo personals who said she was a nurse staying in Nigeria for a week for helping HiV patients. after chatting exchanging pictures for 1 week she said she wanted to come see me and would fly in to the bay area instead of san diego where she lived.
She then said she lost her purse in the embassy and asked me to wire $500 to help her pay her hotel and expenses. She called me 3 times and spoke with abritish accent but said she was from UK but moved to states 3 months ago. She said was 29 but when I asked when she graduated highschool she said 7 years ago.
In her pics she sent me they were linked to a site called hi-5 and i think by her mistake I looked at all the pics and saw some that she was wearing a shirt that said Seniors 06, I really like this girl but I think it might be a scam.
Now she says that I made her feel bad becuase I asked her questions to try to verify who she really is becuaes things don’t add up. LIke her age etc. Any thoughts? Anyone heard of this b4?
Yes this is a scam. She gets your trust up by saying all these nice things about coming to see you and how she loves you, etc. and then asks you to send money. The pictures she is using are just random ones she found online. C
hances are this person is really a guy posing as a girl and typing you messages from a script. The girl on the phone was probably an accomplice of some sort.
She is trying to guilt you into not trusting your gut by saying you made her feel bad about the questions you asked. The entire thing of her being based in Nigeria should be one HUGE red flag for you.
I am sorry you fell for this girl but cut all ties now and run before she/he suckers you into giving them money. Just as a tip, they never fly in to see you and just keep asking for more money because they got sick, lost their passport, family got sick, can’t afford a plane ticket, etc.

Nigerian Dating Questions:
Question about Nigerian Dating Scam?
Hi. I was surfing the net and happend to find this site. ( sorta interesting)
I do understand that western women thought they have met a sweet caring British male engineer who works for a construction company in Nigeria and eventually these women sent him money.
But I really don’t understand that thousands of western men sent money to a hot blonde female model who lives in Nigeria
I mean.. What kind of american female models do u think live in Nigeria? for what reason?
I just don’t understand how these men got tricked into sending money to nigeria.
They are horny, they are lonely, they are dillusional about their own looks, they are gullible, they are too trusting

Beware Of Scammers On Disabled Dating Personals!
Meeting new people from all over the globe is exciting! Dating sites have opened up new vistas for those seeking to make connections. This is especially true of the sites which cater to specific groups of people as they allow their subscribers access to a wider pool of people than they would otherwise come across. One such group of sites are those that pertain to disabled dating.
Disabled dating sites are a boon for differently able people. They provide a platform for social networking and make it easier for persons with disabilities to connect with others. A mere glance at the personals posted on the message board of any disabled dating website is proof enough that the sites cater to many different kinds of people, both disabled and non-disabled.
Disabled dating personals provide interesting insights to the wide range of thoughts and experiences of others. Many introductions through the personals have had happy endings. But the flip side – there are many scams and frauds.
One frequently quoted story is the famous 419 Nigerian Scam. Online daters were lured into making friends with young women, allegedly from the United States. After the initial introductions, the contacts would become increasingly personal until unsuspecting daters would find themselves cheated out of their money. It was ultimately discovered that the scammers were actually in Nigeria and not women at all!
As a group, disabled daters are quite susceptible to frauds. Scammers posing as attractive singles join the websites with the sole purpose of exploiting the vulnerability of disabled singles. Criminals too, often use dating websites intent on finding victims, especially for sex crimes.
Thus, almost all dating websites carry warnings and tips on how to spot such unscrupulous individuals. Common warnings advise subscribers not to divulge personal details online until they are familiar with the other person and not to post personal information on public message boards and personals. They also urge members to report cases of fraud or harassment so that appropriate action can be taken.
Scammers are not the only hazard on disability dating sites. With the sheer number of sites on offer, it is difficult to decide which site is legitimate. Potential daters are readily attracted to free sites. But one could suddenly find oneself faced with an unexpected bill at the end of the month. Or find that only the registration to the site was free and every other service or access to information comes with a substantial price tag!
Low cost dating sites do not invest much time in verifying the information that is posted on the personals. Thus profile details may not be true and it is quite possible that members are in for an unpleasant surprise when they finally meet their date in person. Sites offering introductions to exotic women from Asian and Eastern European countries are well known for this.
Offering exciting adventures, they attract unsuspecting men who one day wake up to find that after spending a fortune corresponding with a supposedly exotic partner, the woman herself does not actually exist! Thus the ultimate advice for all online daters – have fun but do not forget to exercise caution.
Anioma: Waiting to be Created by the National Assembly of Nigeria
Anioma means good land and, Anioma State is a reality and not a dream, and we must work harder if this reality is to be realized. Before we proceed, we need to take a look at the brief history of the Anioma nation, including its origin, peoples, societal values, and answers to the ethnic identity currently confronting the nation.
It is pertinent to understand that before now there was nothing like Anioma by that that name but the community of people and the place have existed for centuries having been cohabiting from time immemorial. Quite understandably, the name “Anioma” was coined by the fathers of the group led by Chief Dennis Osadebe, Anioma therefore is an acronym derived from the then four existing local governments of the area, Aniocha, Ndokwa, Ika and Oshimili. This development gave birth to Anioma but this should not lead to the hasty conclusion that Anioma is an artificial creation as many are poised to hurriedly conclude since there is no natural or divine creation in existence anywhere.
Not all Anioma are Igbo and not all Igbo are Anioma as the nation comprises of people with different histories of origin, while the oral history of origins of notable towns such as Ibusa, Asaba, Ogwashi-Uku etc lay claims to Nshi (Nri) Isu, Ogboli factor, Nteje factors and theories with progenitors of Igbo extraction such as Umejei, Edini, Nnebuisi, Odaigbo etc, other Anioma towns such as Issele-Uku, Issele-Mkpitime, Onitsha (in present Anambra State,) Onicha-Ugbo, Onicha-Olona, etc are believed to have been founded by Ezechime of Edo extraction, there is however a theory to buttress that certain descendants of Ezechime must have added to the population of Ibusa and Asaba in the origin periods of the communities.
There are also the Ika people of Agbor, Igbanke whose origin are traceable to Edo prince. What is also significant to the Anioma is that Igbo is intelligible to all of these communities.
Suffice it therefore that peoples are what they are because they so chose, the Anioma in particular have decided there fate because “a people are defined by their culture, history and geography. More importantly, a people are defined by how they perceive themselves. In effect, a people are who they say they are” (Anioma People of “The Delta,” by Kunirum Osia.) Essentially, the Anioma have emerged as a nation in the polity of Nigeria . The Anioma have come to represent in Nigeria today an insignia of dignifying and unifying culture as one.
The geopolitical definition of Nigeria today recognizes the Anioma nation as located in the South-south region of the country and in Delta State, finely situated too among the Urhobo, Ijaw, Isoko and Itsekeri all of the ethnic nations that the Anioma have related with for ages and having shared same provinces with in the past. Anioma has 9 Local Governments out of the 25 Local Governments that presently makes up the Delta State in the Niger-Delta region of Nigeria .
Anioma people as noted earlier do not share similar origins, histories, ancestries and linguistics for obvious reasons; in fact, about 13 languages are spoken by the people and include Igbo (Enuani,) Ozzara, Olukunmi (an extinct old Yoruba Language,) Igara, Ika, Ukwuani, Edo, Odiani, Utagba, Aboh etc still the Anioma have been woven by oneness which has uniquely manifested into a globe of one community.
An Ukwuani man however as Monn Olodu remarks
“The culture, food, dressing, names, market days are basically the same. An Ukwuani woman does not need an interpreter to trade at Asaba or Abavo markets” Please note that the culture and languages of Igbo, Edo and Yoruba may have started diverged at a period as postulated here by sanders in his studies of “who are the Nigerian?”:
He wrote that:
“Ibo, Anioma, Yoruba and Edo languages and culture may have started diverging about five thousand years ago; this claim is further strengthened by the archaeological discoveries of the Bronze in Ezerra, by Dr. Hertle.
He further recommended, that the burial grounds in Isele-Uku, Abor and Abudu be excavated for more explanation on the missing links (Anioma, Culture: The Past, Present and the Future, a keynote Lecture Delivered by on the Occasion of the Organization for the Advancement of AniomaCulture (OFAAC) Stakeholders Forum, at Muson Centre, Onikan, Lagos, !3 October, 2005)
The Anioma people are noted to abhor violence, a situation that has placed the people in the list of marginalized people of Nigeria , placing them in utter obscurity even with collective unheard voice in the cry for the development, crass neglect, degradation and absence of government agenda for the betterment of the lives of the people. Roads are missing in the region, lack of amenities all of which has left the youth of the region in pitiable conditions.
Anioma is blessed with natural oil and gas but the derivations from the availability of this oil have not reflected in the lives of the people as developments have been concentrated in other parts of State except Anioma.
True to its name, the Anioma soil is fertile, and several other mineral resources such as rubber, rivers for fishing can be found in Anioma but visible State and Federal presence have been found missing in the development of the region.
The case of Anioma is akin that being suffered by the minority ethnicities in the polity of Nigeria , and the founding fathers such as Chief Dennis Osadebe, Honorable F. H. Utomi, Honourable Obi of Akumazi, Honourable Frank Oputa Ututu and Honourable Oki must have realized this, a situation which led to the formation of Movement for the creation of Anioma State.
The neglect of this people has continued till this day. It is as a result of this that the creation of Anioma State is deemed necessary today because of the long neglect of this people in the hands of the Igbo their kit and kin, a people the Anioma have stood for/by when it has always mattered. The Anioma people struggles can be equated with those of the Igbo of the South-East as a people the Anioma have always viewed themselves Igbo but this has yielded almost nothing in return for the Anioma region.
The recent adoption of the creation of any one of Adada, Orashi, Orlu, Aba States by the Igbo show that the creation of Anioma State is not on the agenda of the Ohaneze and indeed Igbo, and the Igbo are in some way skeptical about the ethnic identity of the Anioma people. The Igbo has expressed fears that if allowed to be created as a State in Nigeria , Anioma would eventually become part of the South-South region of Nigeria .
This is best explained in the words of Gabriel Nwanze thus;
“The first issue is that of geopolitical location. Will Anioma State regard itself as a Southeast state or as a South–South state? If the former should be the case, this means that the Igbo have lost half of their foothold and influence in the South-South, leaving only Ndiigbo from Rivers to carry the Igbo flag. The implication not only ends there; it will extend to issues like insufficient representation of Ndiigbo in the affairs of the South-South and thus further marginalization of the Igbo nation” (Issues in the Creation of Anioma state, 2006)
He further contradicts thus while hoping that Ndiigbo benefits from future Anioma State :
“If Anioma State remains in the South-South, then it stands a chance of enabling many more Ndiigbo to benefit both from allocations to the Southeast and to the South-South simultaneously.”
In fact the Iwuayanwu led committee on additional State creation for Ndiigbo ha ssince ruled out the Anioma region in their quest for State creation stating clearly that this would mean additional State for the South-South, interestingly the South-South that considers Anioma people Igbo as Itse Sagay, a renowned professor of International Law and an Itsekiri indigene once suggested that the in Urhobo Historical society website that the Anioma be either moved into Anambra State to join their kit and kin or be given their separate State with capital at Asaba.
It is unnecessary to enumerate here the condition of Anioma in the Delta State as presently constituted, series of these actions have continually pointed to us that we do not belong to Delta State , so we need not vie for developments and the betterment of the lives of the people of Anioma in the State of Delta . We have before our very eyes seen developments exported to the other regions of the State except our own Anioma and hue and cry has been our portion rather than fight against the ugly leper eating our bodies. We have also embraced individualism as against unity.
This brings us to the ethnic identity crisis being suffered by the Anioma. So to which ethnicity do the Anioma belong? The uniqueness of Anioma culture surely has landed the ethnic group in identity crisis, which may live for ages with the people if they fail to take the destiny of the region in their hands (Igbo and Anioma: The Bitter truth, Emeka Esogbue, 2008) Kunirum Osia would put it this way “No Anioma person wishes to be recast in a mould that is not Anioma” The Anioma people have all they want in ethnic identity so they do not need to look elsewhere to acquire ethnic identity, the legend, folklore and history of this people have changed over the time and only Anioma can provide us with full irrevocable sense of history.
With illustous sons and daughters like Chief of Defense Staff, Air-Chief Marshal Paul Dike; the ever glamorous Dr (Mrs) Maryam Babangida; our own Diplomat, Chief Ralph Uwechue; the erudite Professor Pat Utomi; Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala of World Bank; Mr. Nuel Ojei automobile conglomerate; Chief Sunny Odogwu, the renowned industrialist; Tony Elumelu of UBA; Mr. Jim Ovia of the Zenith Bank International; Chief P. C. Nwaodua, the security guru; Professor Augustine Esogbue the Only African in NASA and Scientist; Peter Eloka Okocha Business Mongul; Amb. Ignatius Olisemeka; Frank Atuche; Chief Godwill Obieluem; Chief Sabastine Adigwe M/D Afribank; Austine “Jay Jay” Okocha; Chief Benjamin Elue former Deputy Governor Delta State Nigeria ; and many more, the Anioma community need not look elsewhere to claim its identity.
It is as result of this that the people believing that no other ethnic group would fight its cause should as a matter of urgency rally round Associations like Oganihu-Anioma, Onu-Anioma, Anioma Association USA Inc, Organization for the Advancement of Anioma Culture (OFAAC) and other well meaning individuals and Association of Anioma ethnic group to present oneness in its renewed agitation for the creation of Anioma State. Only the realization of our own State administered by our own indigene will solve our own socio-economic and political problems and marginalization which has pauperized our sons and daughters with untold hardship. The messianic tool for salvaging this must live and come from our midst.
Anioma State is a reality!
