Poor African_farmerThe World Bank and the IMF (the International Monetary Fund) were set up during the end of the Second World War to rebuild the economies of Europe. However, in order for the world bank and the IMF to implement their policies, they (the world bank and the IMF) began offering loans to poor countries but only if the poor countries privatized their economies and allowed western corporations free access to their raw materials and markets. That was a poverty trap and many poor countries realized it when it was too late. We were already in chains.

That was the beginning of much of the problems we face today in Africa. Now we are in a vicious cycle of poverty and there seems to be no way out.

migrant AfricaAccording to the UN Refugee agency, the number of refugees, asylum-seekers and internally displaced people worldwide has, for the first time in the post-World War II era, exceeded 50 million people. In other words, more than 50 million people are displaced around the world today because of conflicts, poverty, persecution, climate change, etc. People are hunted down like wild animals in some of the lawless corners around the world in places like Somalia, Libya, Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Nigeria, Mexico, Afghanistan, etc. forcing several families to run for cover.

In Sub-Saharan Africa, extreme poverty and violence have put several young men on their toes in search for better lives. Take a look at what is happening in Nigeria today, several families have been displaced internally

ForeignAidAlmost all the foreign aid Africa receives, end up in private bank accounts in foreign lands. In Africa, foreign aid fuels corruption, starts conflicts, and pays to kill innocent people especially the poor and the weak. This is how foreign aid destroys Africa. Foreign aid turns African governments into monsters and causes them to destroy the very own people they were supposed to be protecting. Many African leaders stay in power for decades why because they receive free aid money to pay the military and private killing machines to enable them remain in power forever.

Besides turning governments into monsters, foreign aid brings in a lot of other negative incentives. External people see Africa as even poorer why because they "feed" Africa in the form of aid.

General BuhariSeveral millions of registered voters came out in their numbers, lined up and waited hours upon hours under the hot sun and in the pouring rain sometimes with bullets flying over their heads all in an effort to vote for change and not just change but positive change. They waited and voted for the man they feel can bring the change Nigeria needs.

They waited patiently and watched while every vote was counted. They voted and voted for Buhari whom many have come to see as the “Messiah” and the “Junior Prophet” Nigeria needs. Nigerians needed "change" and so voted for nothing but change. 

The question now becomes; Can Buhari fix Nigeria? Can General Buhari bring the positive change Nigeria needs?

childabuse troopsSome of the peacekeepers sent to Africa often take advantage of poor local communities and in some cases, sexually abuse young boys and girls. They come in as angels but end up taking advantage of our pains and sorrows. They take advantage of our fragile conditions and exploit us for personal gains and they do all these and many more in uniforms. They even rape our children and grandchildren. They rape our brothers and sisters and put to silence, those who resist.

Yes they rape Africa’s children some as young as 8 and they do so in uniforms sometimes with their names boldly written on their chests and some even end up with medals of honor. Those who see these barbaric activities are often afraid to speak out and even if they do, who will believe them?

African-immigrant-IsraelAfricans living in Israel today are like scape-goats who get blamed for even the things they know nothing about. Here is an example. Prostitution which is one of the oldest professions in the Torah is not something new in the "promised land" yet Israelis today blame the African immigrants popularly known as the "infiltrators" for introducing prostitution into the Promised Land.

Even King David got drunk several times in the Bible which implies alcoholism isn't something new in the Promised Land yet Israelis today blame African immigrants for introducing alcoholism into the Promised Land and showing God's chosen people how to get drunk. It is so bad to the point where even some Rabbis blame African immigrants for their un-answered prayers which is very sad.
