A History of the Forest Kingdom of Benin.

With artwork to rival that of renaissance Italy, structures comparable to the Great Wall of China, and a ruthlessly disciplined army, the Forest Kingdom of Benin is one of the highlights in Africa’s great history.

It derives its name from the lush rainforests in which the Edo people first settled in the 900s. The people called their kingdom the igodomigodo and the head went by the name of Ogiso, the ‘ruler of the sky’. This dynasty of rulers came to an end in the 1100s, and the

EXPLOSIVE HISTORY: Who Sold Nigeria To Britain For £865k in 1899?

Today we will be discussing the first oil war, which was fought in the 19th century, in the area that became Nigeria.

All through the 19th century, palm oil was highly sought-after by the British, for use as an industrial lubricant for machinery. Remember that Britain was the world’s first industrialised nation, so they needed resources such as palm oil to maintain that.
Palm oil of course, is a tropical plant, which is native to the Niger Delta. Malaysia’s dominance came a century later.

During the last few weeks, I have blogged on the importance of sales and marketing skills. We’ve also begun to discuss the importance of building, nurturing, and sustaining a brand. I’ve tried to show you that behind the sales campaigns, promotions, and advertising you see on TV and in newspapers is a highly complex business tool which you must appreciate and master if you want to develop a profitable business.

ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU'RE SPECIAL.

Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it (Matthew 13:45-46).

There’re people who like to tell us that we’re not very special. Even sometimes in the church, there’re those who, when they’re called to give a testimony, would say, “God did such-and-such for me, not because I’m special.” But you’re special. People make such statements out of ignorance, and a seeming show of humility. You’re peculiar. You’re special to God. You’re His pearl of inestimable value. It’s not pride to acknowledge and affirm that you’re special.

I tried to run some adverts in a local newspaper to create awareness of the
