Comr. Bassey Nton Nton, who is a advocate of Satguru Maharaj Ji – THE ONE LOVE FAMILY (DIVINE LIGHT MISSION) set and he believes strongly on: peace, love, unity and good governance, as well as the Principal officer of MASTERY HUB.

Nton Nton, sends his felicitation message to the good and hardworking people of Bakor Nation, on her unique yearly new yam celebration festival on September 15, 2020.

“Bakor Nation new yam festival as unique cultural heritage worth celebrating,” Nton Nton explained.

While celebrating the new yam in a low-key but unique way in regards to Covid19 pandemic’s negative effects, ” it’s another way of expressing our (Bakor citizens) feelings to God almighty for giving us Bakor food, the new yams. We Bakor people always celebrate the culture that unite us as Bakor Nation since yesterday tell today and tomorrow.”

Bassey Nton Nton who is from Etanawana village – Nde, Ikom Local Government Area of Cross River State of Nigeria, while ‘appreciating God (Esowo-Nton)  first,  for Bakor Nation survival, in this turbulent time of Covide19 pandemic’, Nton Nton also speaks on: Bakor Nation yesterday, today and tomorrow, in regards and commemoration of Bakor new yam festival 2020.

Bakor Nation : Festival Dancing

“I BASSEY NTON NTON, sincerely, humbly with all amount of joy, send my new yam felicitation message, to the good and hardworking people of BAKOR NATION, on her 2020 new yam festival. As we Bakor people (Bakor Nation) celebrate the 2020 new yam festival in a low-key but unique way, I pray that, may the infinite mercy, love and grace of God (Esowo-nton), continue to rain onto us as Bakorians (Bakor Nation), may that grace of the Creator that had kept us Bakorians as one, under the umbrella of BAKOR NATION  yesterday and today, continue to enrich our love, peace, unity and progress as Bakor entity’. I use this note to humbly appeal to Bakor Elites and leaders to look inward into Bakor growth and include Bakor Nation in the scheme of things.   

Nton Nton, went further to explain Bakor Nation. “Bakor Nation cuts across Cross River State central and north, involving two Local Government Areas: Ikom LGA and Ogoja LGA. Bakor Nation is made up of, nine clans namely: Abanyom, Ekajuk, Nde, Nkim, Nkum, Nnam, Nselle, Nta and Ofutop. Bakor Nation accounts for about 75% of the population and even the land mass of the entire Ikom Local Government Area of Cross River State, while Bakor Nation also accounts for 45% of the population and a land mass of  Ogoja Local Government Area in the present day northern Cross River State. 

BAKOR NATION OF THE  YESTERDAY!

Ideas of Bakor-speaking people, to celebrate new yam together and be more united, was fueled by visionary Elites and Elders of the Bakor Nation even before 1962.   1963 BAKOR CULTURAL UNION was founded, 50 years ago. BAKOR UNION became a pioneer and pacesetter in the project of searching for cultural identity in the old Ogoja province in the present-day Cross River State Nigeria.

Bakor Nation’s new yam celebration was and will remain an interaction with our kith and Kin. Bakor new yam festival is the period and time when citizens of the Bakor Nation home and in the diaspora commune with God and gods. Bakor people in general see Baker’s new yam celebration as the end of a year, and a beginning of a new era.

As a Bakor son/man. I keep asking my humble self: WHO AND WHAT ARE BAKORS, WHAT AND WHO  WERE WE AS BAKOR PEOPLE IN THE PAST, AND WHAT ARE WE NOW AS BAKOR AND WHERE ARE WE GOING TO?  

Bakor Nation, belong to the “EJAGHAM speaking people”, presently settlement in the old Ogoja province, in the present day Cross River State Nigeria, in a contiguous land mass, with one affinity, one destiny and one ancestral dialect/culture and custom. Citizens of Bakor Nation are the most versatile group of the farming community in the present old Ogoja province in the present Cross River State, with yams, cassava, rice, plantain, cocoyam and groundnuts beans etc as our annual crops, while palm trees for palm oil, palm win etc, cocoa, coconut, orange etc as our cash crops, to meet domestics and commercial needs.  

Some Bakor people had and are in discourse and on research for Bakor origin. ‘Biblically, Bakor is recorded in Ezra 2:1 & 53 and Nehemiah 7:5  &  55’, we Bakor people came from the BANTU RACE of East Africa. Some persons believe that: ‘ancestrally, Bakor man parachuted from the skies. I think as a Bakor son/man, I (we)  Bakor Nation may have come a long way, Bakors have prospered and multiplied as well as expanded in the BAKOR NATION settlements, and we Bakor have grown in the social and political fields in some extend. Bakors build on the legacy of Rt. Hon. Ayip Nsed, Chief. I.I Murphy, Chief (Barr) F.I Nnany., Chief. E.E Monjok, Elder (Senator). Philip Nacoco, Chief. Robert Ntol and Chief. Nserr Ebaye, all of the blessed memory.

BAKOR NATION TODAY!

Bakor Nation is happy and not happy by some concede Bakors, Bakor as an entity is still existing on ‘past glory’,  Bakor language, culture/traditions are if not practised but promoted at a higher level, Bakor Youths hardly learn or speak Bakor language, the political struggle for supremacy/cultism are the other of the day. Considering the present devaluation of the Naira, Bakors find it difficult to return to the farm, those areas whose land is not arable in production of YAMS are now gaining subsequent international recognition, while Bakor land that is more than fine for farming is on a level that needs growth. 

MASTERY HUB

I join Bakors at home and abroad,  and Bakor Nation in general, to celebrate BAKOR NEW YAM FESTIVAL, on September 15, 2019. I truly say no to negative and mundane vices /tendencies.

I use this medium to salute citizens of Bakor Nation on the run for the emancipation of Bakor Nation and ask for youths to be part in rising in the building of Bakor socio-political structure(s) and must especially the oneness of Bakor Nation to achieve the dreams of our founding fathers, maybe today or tomorrow/nearest future but in the future close. Quote me:  considering the fact we come from Bakor Nation, we would and should joyfully contribute to the growth of Bakor Nation in any ramification(s), I employ you. 

BAKOR NATION TOMORROW!

The general question to us Bakor remains: where do Bakor Nation in general go from here, what is our tomorrow? Should we Bakor disappear in swirl turmoil? And have our identities in history. The best answer is NO. we the people of Bakor Nation should re-invent, and re-establish ourselves, our identity, history and integrity to get a more unique nationality. We should all as Bakors survive in gaining vigorous resurgence under one struggle.

BAKOR POTENTIALS!

Bakor has what it takes to survive as a state, constitute or local government of her own if given the liberty and autonomy, which I put to Bakor Nation, we can achieve it together now, tomorrow but in the nearest future, if and only if, we all put our fingers across. Bakor has big virgin land and land mass for the cultivation of food in commercial and household consumptions.  Bakor Nation is equipped by God as a tourism ethnic group: The monoliths of Alok, Nkarassi, Nde and many more to be acknowledged by the government or stakeholders in tourism. Bakor commercial skills and arts are splendour through clay pots and clay utensils, weaving, carving and smiting by Bakor Nation citizens,  fishing is a profession by Bakors, Bakor having over 500m squad FISH POND at Oyenghe Nta Clan in Ikom Local Government Area. 

BETTER BAKOR IN THE NEAREST FUTURE AND THE FUTURE!

I put it clear to Bakor citizens that, for a better Bakor Nation be a reality, it is our collective responsibilities, and functions, having one interest, faith and goodwill, that will move Bakor Nation up and upper to achieve our founding father’s dreams. I humbly draw the attention and call Bakor: Youths, elites, political leaders and elites/politicians should not distance themselves, or ourselves, let us all put our differences behind us, for as citizens of Bakor Nation, we have no better home than Bakor territory.

Moving Bakor Nation forward towards emancipation is  achievable, a reality, to systematically guide the vision and mission of the Bakor people into the nearest future, I suggest to Bakor Nation, Bakorians to unanimously implement my sincere/humble suggestions below:

MOBILIZATION OF BAKOR POLITICAL AND SOCIAL BODY:

Need for mobilization, the establishment of infrastructures,  and technological practices / good communication strategies to be drafted and implemented. 

PROGRAMS AND PROJECTS IMPLEMENTATIONS:

Social Education and public mobilization infrastructural development.

Political enlightenment mobilization including youth involvement.

Formation/promotion of cooperative and social clubs/troupes to participate in National
