Popular Nigerian author and former presidential aide, Reno Omokri has made historical argument on why Mungo Park did not discover River Niger.
He made this intellectual argument in a recent tweet he shared on his Twitter page yesterday, June 28.

According to the Amazon Best Selling Author, “you cannot discover a river that people were already living in and fishing in and swimming in.”

His post was in deed food for thought as he left a mind bugling question, “if Mungo Park discovered River Niger, then what do we say about the Black man who showed him where it is?”.

In his words;

Oyibo can be funny sometimes. Just imagine! How can you discover a place where people already exist and call their home?

If Mungo Park had said that, he was the first tourist to sail in River Niger by ship, that is understandable. We may give him credit for that. But, he was not and will never be the one who discovered River Niger. Our forefathers did and River Niger belongs to us.

Well my brother, what the European historians wrote  actually meant, Mungo discovered the Niger river  for hem- as that was his first time to see it. It's like the mad assertion from the colonialists and their collaboration  African intellectual subterfuges who  continue to  write that   African countries were  founded by   these  Europeans regardless of  the buoyant kingdoms and  productive populations who had lived their far before written history. But yes   it  had to be Mungo Park hence  the  culture of  conquer . Until a rising  vocal activists  come out to  change he color and  narration of our history,  the  BLACK LIVES MATTER  WILL  JUST BE ANOTHER STORM IN THE TEA CUP THAT GOES AWAY WHEN THE TIDE IS GONE.
