E-BOOK: The First Nigerian People (First Edition)

by: Dr. Jacob Abdullahi

There is no doubt whatsoever that Oduduwa is the progenitor of the Yoruba people. Controversy about the origin of Oduduwa should be clarified judging by the Igala oral history. Oral history is passed from generation to generation through story telling (alo) song (eli) and proverbs (ita or akpo). The fact that the white settlers initially wrote our history for us made it very clumsy and unbelievable the level of distortion came from the persons that narrated the story. Because of the varying opinions about the personality of ‘Oduduwa’, there is therefore a compelling mandate to put the fact on the table of public opinions for accurate and intelligent assessment of these bare pieces of information.

Oduduwa is believed by the Igalas to have originated from Benin- the present Edo state capital (Bini Kingdom). His real name was Ekaladeran. Igala kingdom share boundary with Benin. In fact, it is the river Niger that separated in parts the two great kingdoms.

Instance of Igala/Benin kingdom relationship are too remarkable to be ignored. Taking into account the difference in the two languages, a closer study of the two courts at Idah and Benin, would reveal more evidence to prove the connection of the two kingdoms.

Nigeria is made up of many ethnic groups speaking over 521 different languages. Over Sixty percent of the population lives in the rural areas. Their major occupation is farming. The official language is English. The Colonial language is more popular in the cities where many ethnic groups from different parts of the country converge for business activities. All institutions study in English although some students may choose to specialize in other local and international languages at the end of their course. The three major languages spoken in Nigeria today are Hausa, Yoruba and Igbo. These languages are classified: Afro-asiatic, Nilo-Saharan and Kwa group of Niger- Congo. The Hausa inhabit the far North, Yoruba in the Western region and the Igbo in the Eastern region of Nigeria. Others are Urhobo, Ibibio, Fulfude, Tiv, Kanuri, Ijaw, Igala, Edo, Gbagy, Nupe and so on.

Contribution in area of health 

After leaving school, Dr. J.J Abdullah worked in private and public sectors of the Nigeria state. His stint at the National Institute for pharmaceutical Research and Development (NIPRD), Idu-Abuja saw him concentrating efforts in researching into Herbal Medicines.

God crowned his effort with a break-through by way of discovery of Winniecure (Herbal Therapy) for the treatment of HIV/AIDS. Thousands of victims of the HIV/AIDS scourge both within and outside Nigeria have benefited tremendously from using the drug. Many Igala and other Kogi State indigenes are either completely free or heavily subsidized HIV drugs provided by him.

He is thus (through the Grace of God) a sustainer of life.
