Re: USA Africa Dialogue Series - IDANRE: Nigeria's treasure

Nostalgic! The last time I was there was 1977 - all of African Studies folks at the then Unife went there and we made it to the peak. There used to be an Oba's palace at the very top of this legendary Idanre Hill; I wonder if it's still there. That was where we met the Oxford trained historian, the Oba. He probably must have joined his fathers, since the Yoruba Obas are rarely known for their longevity. Thanks a bunch for sharing . . .

To conclude TOFAC 2017, the Adeyemi College of Education arranged a visit to the famous city of Idanre, with its hills and rocks, mysteries and mythologies. A delight for religious people, if you go to the very top, after climbing hundreds of steps, you may see God Himself—or the lesser gods and goddesses, and, forgive me, Jesus Christ, too! I could have climbed to the top—"no shaking!" but the rain threatened; darkness warned. I will go back—I will certainly do.  I want to see miracles of the living past, and the Holy Ghost of the dead present!!!

After stage three, the entire town opens up to you in its entire glory. Nigeria is full of wonders, a great land with treasures and amazingly wonderful and friendly people.
