For a whe now I've been pondering HOW to post about the #Russia-#Ukaine War and its global economic & Geopolitical implications.

Its not easy covering such a huge topic using twitter's 40 word limit. Crucial is "WHERE" and "WHEN" to start?

Where = the Middle East
When = 1973

...didn't join other Arab states to attack Israel. But he couldn't stand idle while Israel wiped 2 Arab countries off the map. He was aware that the US the main supporter of Israel. So he & other Arab countries placed an Oil Embargo on the US & some of its allies.
It was a risky

"Great countries are not made by great currencies, but by great citizens. America is not what she is because she has unlimited resources but because she has unlimited dreams.
On the other hand, Nigeria is what she is not because of shortage of resources,
but because of the shortage of dreams. The majority of Nigerians don’t have dreams; they just have needs. A need is what you require but lack, while a dream is what your world lacks but you have the potentials to offer.
Nigeria’s problem isn’t brought about by lack of money, so funding is not the solution. Nigeria’ problem is brought about by a lack of manners,so reformation is the answer.Nigerians have to be reformed:to have the right values…to have their priority right..to be legacy spirited.

Significance Of September 6: From Nigerian Army Declaring Me Wanted To Shaping HumAngle

THREAD humanglemedia.com/significance-o…
On Sept. 6, five years ago, I landed in Abuja on an Emirates flight from the UAE after the Nigerian Army declared me a wanted man on Aug. 14, 2016. I heard the news on Al Jazeera before I began to receive calls from friends and family.
I was very shocked because I had a chat with the COAS less than 2wks before the embarrassing declaration by the Army under his leadership. According to the Army spokesman at the time, my crime was that I knew where the #ChibokGirls were and refused to share their location.

Amnesty International condemns the Nigerian government’s suspension of Twitter @Twitter in #Nigeria🇳🇬 — a social media widely used by Nigerians to exercise their human rights, including their rights to freedom of expression and access to information. #TwitterBan
We call on the #Nigerian authorities to immediately reverse the unlawful suspension and other plans to gag the media, repress the civic space, and undermine Nigerians' human rights. #TwitterBan
This action is clearly inconsistent and incompatible with Nigeria's international obligations including under the African Charter on Human and Peoples' Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. #TwitterBan #Nigeria
