I love the Igbo tribe for their industrious nature, Itsekiri tribe for their hospitable nature, and finally Ijaw tribe for their rebellious nature.

I like music, I'm sure you do too! Do you play a trumpet? If you don't, it will be a suitable musical instrument for you

Troll: My Background Is Multi-Tribal So I Don't Dislike Any Tribe. Coming From A Dad Who's Partly Delta Ibo (Agbor) And Partly Edo (Bini) And A Mom Who's Partly Yoruba (Ondo) And Partly Delta (Itshekiri) And My Maternal Great-Grandfather Who's Partly Caucasian (English) And Partly Nigerian (Yoruba); I Think I'll Be The Last Person That Will Discriminate Tribes.
Most Of My Relatives Do Inter-Tribal Marriages And I Don't Plan To Base My Marriage On A Particular Tribe Too. Since I've Lived In Different Parts Of The Country, I'd Say Every Nigerian Tribe Is Beautiful. Only Our Individual Psych Differs.
I've Had The Opportunity Of Having Acquaintances From Different Tribes Both Local And International grin But I Must Confess I'm Currently Digging These Fulani Babes. Dem Fine Die And Cool-Headed Too cheesy
Nigeria: Great Nation Good People

Im yoruba. And my culture has taught me not to generalise but relate to pple on individual basis. So few hausas (christians)I have related with, have been exceptional, especially the lady frm Zuru tribe - humble, calm, hospitable (one of the best). My Hausa guy was quite cool too. My former pastor and one other guy (calm and generous) have been the Igbos that have impressed my so far. I will like Igbos to change this "we versus them"/ "everybody is against us" attitude. I believe Nigeria is home to some of the best tribes of Africa, if we can respect each other and work more together.

I wouldn't say 'tribe', but let's just say I like Northerners for their humility, simplicity, approachability, fatalism (what would be would be), and willingness to help (even without knowing you too well). It's amazing how many kind favours and connections I've gained from these nice people in Abuja, that one can hardly gain from my fellow southerners who are typically so arrogant, unapproachable, and full of airs whenever they find themselves in privileged/powerful positions.

If you take away the Islamic fanaticism of some sections of the core North, I'd rate them by far the most admirable people.

Nonetheless, in terms of an actual ethnic group, I like the Efik a lot. They're among my favourites for many reasons - modesty, warmth, positive docility (lol), and of course hospitality (in all its dimensions, shapes, and forms).

rare pearl: We have diverse tribe with different culture and way of life which make them unique, write your tribe the tribe you like best it mustn't be your tribe. Let's know our culture.

You nko, which tribe you like?

Southern Kaduna folks, dem just b like Lagos boys for my eye, dem soji die. Northerners too make sense except for Islamic fundamentalism, they are very hospitable.

Classicalman: Means u r an introvert and recluse, who doesnt associate with other people.
*sigh*

My comment meant I see no other tribe as best or better over the other. I only picked Yoruba because of sentiments(I'm Yoruba)

And I'm very individualistic, I don't judge people based on the tribe they come from undecided
