Tiv people know that the universe did not just happen. Furthermore, they know their Creator. They accept that they are a people under God. The God that gave them the best of everything, including the best of natural resources and human resources with great potential and huge talents, so as to excel “immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine” Eph.3:20
Our prime aim is to ensure that the Tiv seize the moment, and apply their capabilities and opportunities and history of God choosing to use them to continue into God’s good plan for them. For example, God used them to ensure religious freedom in Nigeria since 1804. Please see the Fulani Nationality Movement’s Media Release of 13 January 2018.
Another example involves the Nigeria Civil war using the slogan “to keep Nigeria one is a task that must be done” It was about the unity of Nigeria.
Now there are 520 tribes in Nigeria. Tiv are the fourth largest people group. The cost was 1.5 million young men who laid down their lives at the front line, of this total 800,000 Tiv lives were sacrificed to keep Nigeria united and one. The Tiv having done all that far more than all the Nigerian tribes put together, the Tiv are now well prepared and ready to build their Nation to the level of the most advanced economies of the world with God’s help to the Glory of God.
