#EFIK (The Efiks inhabit the coastal area of South Eastern #Nigeria and are very well known nationally and internationally partly because of the prominence of #Calabar in Nigerian history and also due to their rich cultural heritage. Among the broad culture of the Efiks are “#Ekombi”, the Efik classical music, “#Ukwa”, the only fencing match in sub-Saharan Africa, “#Mbuk”, a collection of Efik folklore, and “#Ekpe”. #Abang dance is performed for entertainment and at festive occasions. The dance can be simple as well as elaborate with many interpretations behind it. The most famous cuisine “#Edikangikong” is renowned as next to none in Nigeria.
There are a host of other traditional dance forms. “#Nkuho”, where a young female, who is about to be betrothed in marriage, is confined, taught and molded into womanhood. Here she learns moral values of the community and how to appreciate herself. While in confinement, she is not allowed to do any chores. Instead, she eats as much as she wants; is pampered and taught the Ekombi dance in preparation for the day that she comes out of the confinement. She is not allowed any male visitors except her suitor. The length of time in the confinement has changed over the years.) #Africa #blackisbeautiful #themoreyouknow #naturalhair #Calabar #AkwaIbom #NigerDelta #Nigerians #Nigeria #Culture beautiesofafrique.tumblr.com (at #Nigeriaat54)

For the Igbos amongst us:

So, i took some Ukwa (and by took i mean i cupped some out of my Dad’s pantry because let’s face it, i miss eating Ukwa and he wouldn’t notice the “loss”) from my Dad’s house and i am treating it like gold. I am making some for dinner so when i come back, i can just microwave it and chow down. I also “took” some akau. Chai! I can’t wait to come back home and have dinner!

Ibibio-Efik 

Ibibio-Efik, also known as Ibibio and Efik, is the major dialect cluster of the Benue–Congo language family called Cross River. Efik proper has national status in Nigeria and is the literary standard of the Efik languages, though Ibibio proper has more native speakers

Ibibio-Efik is a dialect cluster spoken by about 3½ million people of Akwa Ibom State and Cross River States of Nigeria, making it the sixth largest language cluster in Nigeria after Hausa, Yoruba, Igbo, Fulani, and Kanuri.

Minor varieties, according to Williamson and Blench, are 200,000 Ekit, 7,000 Efai, 20,000 Ibuoro, 5,000 Eki, 5,000 Idere, and a hundred Ukwa. These arguably constitute a single language, though Ethnologue considers them to be separate.

Numerous problems such as language endangerment, the loss experienced and factors contributing to language shift noticeable in Efik elicited the study of this paper. These problems are not peculiar to the Efik language, but to nearly all minority languages of the world.

Nsibidi  is a system of symbols indigenous to what is now southeastern Nigeria that is apparently an ideographic script, though there have been suggestions that it includes logographic elements. There are thousands of nsibidi symbols, of which over 500 have been recorded. Nsibidi is used on wall designs, calabashes, metals (such as bronze), leaves, swords, and tattoos. It is primarily used by the Ekpe leopard secret society (also known as Ngbe or Egbo), which is found across Cross River among the Ekoi, Efik, Igbo people, and other nearby peoples.

Kingsley Emereuwa: Alex Otti Will Never Be Governor Of Abia State

Without sounding immodest, I can proudly say that I am not a stranger to this kind of season, especially where it concerns Abia State. Yes, I was there in 1999 when Orji Kalu triumphed over Prince Vin Ogbulafor of the All Peoples Party (APP) and Max Nduaguibe of former Alliance for Democracy. I covered Abia in 2003 when Kalu again got railroaded to victory in spite of opposition from his first deputy governor, Enyi Abaribe, who galvanized the Ukwa-Ngwa political bloc to agitate for a governor of Ukwa-Ngwa extraction. Kalu ran against Abaribe and one Onwuka Kalu of Chekwas Okorie’s All Progressives Grand Alliance. Recall that, prior to 2003, Kalu was over-heating the entire polity with his threat of declaring war in the country if an Igbo man does not emerge the President. All of us queued behind him until the August 2002 birthday of “Mother Excellency” when, in an unprecedented volte-face, Kalu told the crowd at Ngwa High School Aba that Igbos are waiting and urging President Olusegun Obasanjo to declare his interest to seek a second term in office. The Nigerian media went haywire with various headlines. THISDAY did a caricature of Kalu in what it tagged ‘The Great Somersault. Credible columnists were shocked. My former boss, Amanze Obi, called it “Political Hara-kiri”, Olusegun Adeniyi recalled the interview granted THISDAY by Chief Ojo Maduekwe who had prophesied that before December of that year Kalu would join in the fray of those jostling to campaign for Obasanjo. Then came 2007 when Kalu, with the state apparatus, had moved the political structure to found the Progressive Peoples Alliance (PPA) which fielded Chief T.A. Orji as its flag bearer. Ochendo, as he is fondly called, defeated the then candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Onyema Ugochukwu. Kalu and his aides till date brag about that feat. In 2011, Ochendo trounced Kalu’s line-up for all the political offices available in Abia starting from Chris Akomas who Kalu chose in place of his loyal servant Stanley Ohajuruka for the governorship ticket, down to the state legislature. Kalu’s reason for choosing Akomas, according to him, was to give the people of Abia South an opportunity to occupy the Government House. Despite the dummy he tried to sell, he still failed. So why couldn’t Kalu, the political gadfly, fly in 2011? Take it or leave it, the person with the palm frond will ultimately attract the goats, as we say in Igboland. Now we are in the build-up to the 2015 general elections and many political analysts have emerged. Even those who do not know the road to their fathers’ compounds have been running their mouths foul. Off course, for the very idle columnists in Nigeria, Abia is their only field of interest for apprenticeship. Just recently, one Ebere Wabara (for the benefit of non-Igbos, Wabara means son of demonic deity) chose to advertise his ignorance and pedestrian knowledge of a terrain he got conscripted into. He was approbating and reprobating at the same time. His grouse was my comment on the Abia PDP governorship primaries which he disagreed with. But, rather than deal with the issue, he went on argumentum ad hominem even with a poor knowledge of my person. But, unlike him, I will not toe his traditional gutter pattern because, if I do, he will drag me further to his level and probably defeat me with experience. A lot of things were put into consideration before I arrived at this decision and I now know that Wabara has every reason to be bitter with anything or person not opposed to Abia government. He bears serious malice against the governor especially given the manner he was tied like a ram at the back of a police van and driven from Lagos to police custody. But, even at that, there is a limit to which he should be appropriating what is meant for public service for personal enterprise. He is an aide to former governor Kalu and has appropriated spaces in Kalu’s media outfits deceiving the public. When editors are invited to “lucrative” states with “performing governors”, he goes to “cover” the programs. His band of enemies keep increasing by the day. From politicians, he has dragged his animosity down to journalists working in other media houses for news reports not suiting him. Last time he said he was going to petition the management of THISDAY over a report by its correspondent. That is the kettle calling the pot black. Now who needs a visit to that Yaba Psychiatric Home? I was not surprised that the son of a demonic deity (Wabara) would conclude his “masterpiece” with his campaign for Alex Otti. The rigmarole was not necessary because it is public knowledge where he was coming from. He was doing what will earn him an appreciation from the moneyman and it is his right to support and campaign for whom so ever. Just like others should be allowed to freely express their choice. The end will show the result. Like I stated in the beginning, I am no new comer to the politics and elections in Abia. I know it as I know that Christians worship Jesus Christ and believe in Him for salvation and Muslims reverence Mohammed that Alex Otti will NEVER be governor of Abia in the INEC rescheduled April 2015 polls. He is merely taking a walk. The number of Lagos writers you engage does not win elections. This is their season. We like deceit in which we later rue. We win elections at the booths, not on WhatsApp, Twitter or Facebook. What is very clear in the case of Abia and other places is that Otti and company would have wished they were the chosen ones. That Ochendo adopted them. It is the simple truth. There are no pretenses. He prayed for it and little wonder he began his smear campaign by telling people that it was the governor that asked him to leave his job in Diamond Bank when it dawned on him that the governor is not a rainbow character. Otti should simply count himself lucky that he did not emerge in the scene in the days preceding Ochendo. He would have been sucked dry and still be left in the lurch at the end. Allies and those close to the seat of power in the state then would have used the ije-eje code to drain him of his finance. But Ochendo is a man conscious of history and the path he walks on. Even in the process that threw up Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, there has not been any allegation of foul play in the exercise. Their only grouse was that he was believed to have the sympathy of the governor. That is not unexpected. If Wabara’s thinking was not shallow, he would have remembered the process that threw up Orji Kalu in 2003 and how Col. Austin Akobundu who was the only man that fought to the end for the ticket was rigged out. Not that anything better is expected from a man with limited intelligence- quotient, but those who live in glass houses don’t throw stones or move about naked. Like I stated in the beginning, Abia politics and masses are not alien to the likes of Otti. There was one man before him called Ikechi Emenike. No one hears of him again. As it is said, come easy, go easy. And, just like Emenike, Otti would sooner than later be a forgotten issue, like a picture in an old family album. One more thing is that if Kalu’s aides rate him so high politically because he installed a successor, then, that which is sauce to the goose is equally sauce to the gander. So, following precedent, Ochendo will, as usual, beat that record.<br/><br/>The post Kingsley Emereuwa: Alex Otti Will Never Be Governor Of Abia State appeared first on Ekekeee.
