Igbos Are Blamed For Substandard Goods In Nigeria: Why by hotncold1(m): 7:49am On Nov 17, 2013
This is not about tribal or ethnic sentiments,its about trying to understand where the"perceived"notion,that Igbos are either known for,or are responsible for"substandard goods/merchandise"within Nigeria.

It is true that"most"and not"all"Igbos are into importation and manufacturing of"substandard goods"within Nigeria grin grin,for what ever reason(s),but is it fair to"Generalise"?

Are Igbos the only ethnic group in Nigeria that are into importation and manufacturing of"Substandard goods"?


Where and when did this"myopic notion"spring up from?

Why must the Igbos be blamed for"Substandard goods"In Nigeria?

Topics such as this shouldn't be on the front page.
Nairaland is gradually turning into Tribaland.


'Yorubas vs Igbos' let the war of words begin.

coz majority of d goods imported into nigeria is done by d igbos.And there is dis rumour which goes around dat dis importers go outside d country and ask for d quality of dis goods to be reduced,as i said it's a rumour.But to be honest all tribes are to be blamed coz nigerians have dis get rich attitude which makes them forsake their conscience all in d name of making money quick.

Not only goods, IGBOs are blamed for everything that goes wrong in Nigeria. You toilet is leaking it must be that useless Nweke aba made pipes, Your are not bleeping your wife wella, it is okafor your neighbor that comes to bleep your wife when you are not around. Plane crash, it is Oduah and her renovated airplanes; you no fit pay your child's school fees, it is Afam that has come to your land and taken over all your jobs.


Make them no worry, cool BIAFRA is coming soon and we would leave their country for them.

People See their products inferior. Can vividly recall when BlackBerry Torch was the latest, my friend nd i went To the Market to Buy Stuffs. I visited the phone Section to Uhmm feed my Eyes with the Latest Cellphones. I saw this Same BlackBerry Torch on display then i askd the shop Owner of the price, he told me 15k i tink. I was lyk damn, so the Mighty BlackBerry Is just 15k? Before i left my Attention Caught the home key. Instead of the normal BlackBerry symbol there, it was a house. Sort of like a duplex. D guy was Busy trying to Negotiate'. Whu wan Buy Aba made?

Because of IGBO people mentality of quick money. So they usually make use of low quality materials to maximise profit, since it would give them the same product at a lower cost. IGBO are born hustlers, see them everyone in the world.
