The Chairman of National Christian Elders Forum (NCEF) is a fan of Kwasi Kwarteng, a Negro historian of Ghanaian descent and member of British Parliament who in his book titled Ghost of the Empire selected two countries in Africa. He concluded in his Introduction that: “It is a mistake to think that administrators were motivated by liberal ideals of democracy.  In many cases they chose careers in the empire precisely because they were not democrats.

They were elitists, men who could write Latin and Greek epigrams and had sought to wield power without having to go through the inconvenience of being elected. Milner himself remained ‘profoundly distrustful of the enfranchised.  To argue that he and his colleagues were promoting democracy stretches the truth. The empire stood for order and the rule of law, but we must not pretend that its character was something other than what it was.  The imperial administration was highly stratified and snobbish. It was the very opposite of the egalitarian, plural and liberal institution that some historians have portrayed. --- Among the administrators there were the sons of parsons, of university lecturers and of civil servants. In fact the majority were from middling, anonymous families, without the pride of lineage associated with true aristocracies.  It was at the public schools and, to a lesser degree, at the universities that the elite swagger and famously lofty sense of superiority were cultivated. ---  There is very little unifying ideology in this imperial story. It was grand and colourful but it was highly opportunistic, dominated by individualism and pragmatism. The British Empire is a bizarre model to follow for fostering stability in today’s world. Indeed, much of the instability in the world is a product of its legacy of individualism and haphazard policy-making.”[1]

It is with the above in mind that we write this piece to remind the Negroids of Nigeria that having lived in Africa for centuries even though of Arab descent, they are Africans and no matter what they do to keep their light skin white, the sun of Africa makes them to be classified as blacks and, no matter where they go in the world, they cannot be Arabs and in the circumstances, they must stop deluding themselves that they are superior to the black man because they are not.  Otherwise, the Ghosts of Empire will continue to haunt them. Today Nigeria is going the Sudan way and this reckless attitude must be stopped in the interest of the Black man throughout the world.
