Ngozi123:
Threads like these should remind people, particularly Ndigbo, that Igbos are not and were never the main distributors of hate on this site.
You must be a newcomer on this site, to have jumped to this conclusion. Start from all the threads that were opened up in 2005 to 2017, and read the comments of your fellow Igbo people, before you pass judgement. Your people gave a new definition to the term 'provocation', and also redefined 'hate-speech.'

Igbo Kwenu! The Igbo people are an ethnic group native to the southeastern and some part of the south central Nigeria. They are an interesting people with a culturally rich heritage and are indeed admirable. Jumia Travel, the leading online travel agency, shares 4 things Igbo people like.

Gatherings

For their gatherings, the Igbos prefer a silent and quiet environment. Some might assume that this might make their gatherings dull, but this is totally not the case. The Igbos have a way of making themselves happy even amidst the silence and quietness through some philosophical type discussions, sharing drinks and basically privately relating within themselves, family members and a couple of friends.

The Women

Igbo women are typically raised to be bold and somewhat comfortable with their sexuality. If an Igbo woman likes a man, it will show in no time in the way she relates with him and behaves around him. However, if an Igbo woman doesn’t like a man, she is unlikely to turn him down harshly rather she will continue to be a friend to the man, pet his head, keep him at arm’s length while still giving him just the right amount of attention to know she appreciates his affection towards her.

Proverbs


There is hardly a Nigerian tribe that loves the use of proverbs like the Igbos. The use of proverbs seems to be embedded in the very foundation of the culture of the Igbo people. Even when there are fights, especially amongst themselves, they are not accustomed to getting physical. They will typically raise their voices and very sternly make their points and end by delivering threats to one another which are usually in form of proverbs before walking away.

Business

The Igbos are arguably the most business savvy tribe in the country. When it comes to entrepreneurial ventures, they are known to take the front seat. There is a common saying: “Give an Igbo man one thousand naira and he will make a million out of it”. Though this might not be true in every circumstance, you have to admit that there is hardly a group of people more business and entrepreneurially inclined as the Igbos. This is because Igbos seem to be the ones with the larger propensity for risk taking that business and entrepreneurial ventures involve.

OP what is the meaning of this thread

Gatherings
Yoruba women like heavy gatherings, owambe things, they would block the road completely, kill big cows and drink enough hydraulic soup to celebrate their wards who have just completed apprenticeship in carpentry and hairdressing without having money to rent a shop for their practice afterwards.

The Women
Their women are so timid, at the mention of olopa (police) they run away, and hide at their backyards shouting ye! ye! mokun o! ọlọrun gbà mi!!!

Food
Yoruba women are skillful in inoculating their kids with hydraulic soups immediatly after birth, most times, they turn the innocent child upside down, head strapped withing their fleshy thighs, nostrils blocked, and mouth wide open to inoculate hydraulics into the infant while s/he gasp for the breath of life (this makes me cry cry cry cry)

Business
Yoruba women have no business acumen, all they do is kiri (hawk) akara elepo and pàkúté on the streets of Nigeria

NYASH
They can have Nyash for Africa, this is obviously the resultant effect of hydraulic soup inoculation. they have big big watery nyash unlike their igbo counterparts who have firm, thick, water melon hard,and onion curvy butts, Yoruba own is always dirty and smelling undecided

Salutation
They salute with every happenings;Ẹ ku ibalopo, Ẹ ku abọ, Ẹ ku aarọ, Ẹ ku ọsan, Ẹ ku strike, Ẹ ku subsidy, Ounjẹ ajẹye o, Ko to ọpẹ, Ẹ ku Ayọ Ajinde, Ẹ ku Ayọ Keresimesi ati Ọdun Tuntun

Mining
Dont even go there, they are nulli secundus (second to none) when it comes to skull mining, Ogun state their global HQ with its research and development annex at Ikorodu recently inaugurated

'was just strolling by when I saw a post by a total ignoramus who, it seems, thinks that the igbos are only 5% of Nigerians. Well, it's a pity that our dead president thinks the same way. If those people who made that statement had an IQ higher than a 5-year old's, which I'm quite certain they don't, they might have done their research and then discovered that the igbos actually make up a whopping 18% of Nigeria's population.

OP what is the meaning of this thread

Gatherings
Igbo women like heavy gatherings, igba nku things, they would block the compound completely, kill big cows and drink enough oha soup to celebrate their friends who have just managed to hook another moneybag into matrimony, without having sense to investigate his background or source of wealth, for their benefit afterwards. e.g. wife of Evans the kidnapper. They must buy enough george materials and abada, to wear the double wrapper to their women's meetings, where they fine each other anyhow, for real and unreal actions, that make little or no sense.

The Women
Their women are so aggressive, that they beat up their husbands, in-laws, neighbours or anyone who crosses their path. But when their victims report them to the police, they run away, and hide at their backyards shouting "Chineke me!!! They hate me because I am Igbo."

Food
Igbo women are skillful in inoculating their kids with oha soups immediately after birth, most times, they turn the innocent child upside down, head strapped withing their fleshy thighs, nostrils blocked, and mouth wide open to inoculate oha into the infant while s/he gasp for the breath of life (this makes me cry cry cry cry)

Business
Igbo women have little business acumen, all they do is support their husbands or brothers in everything he does, no matter how evil and reprehensible it may be. They are good at prostitution, or hawking their bodies in all state capitals, and on the streets of Nigeria. To them, the end justifies the means, no matter how ungodly the means might be. Another way they do business is through the marriage lists their families give to their prospective bridegrooms. In some communities, the bridegroom must also build a house for his prospective father-in-law, before their marriage rites can be concluded.

NYASH
They can have uku for Africa, this is obviously the resultant effect of nkwobi inoculation. they have big big watery nyash unlike their other counterparts who have firm, thick, water melon hard,and onion curvy butts, Igbo own is always dirty and smelling undecided

Salutation
They salute with every happenings; Kedu, Ụtụtụ ọma, Ehihie ọma Ndewo, Mgbede ọma Ndewo, Kachi fo, I saala chi etc.

Mining
Dont even go there, they are nulli secundus (second to none) when it comes to baby factory, having female husbands, kidnapping, selling fake goods, and breeding children with strangers outside wedlock, to carry on their family name. Imo state their global HQ with its research and development annex at Mbaise recently inaugurated.
I agree with all you said about them.

When you were writing rubbish about Yoruba women, you had amnesia abi? Now, that you have been served a dose of your own medicine, you are crying! How daft is that? When you were repeating your falsehood about Yoruba women, you had plucked your own education from the sewer and the garbage dump, isn't it? If dem born your own mama well, repeat your thrash and see if it will not be served back to you in equal measure. Your parents did not raise you with respect, neither did they teach you manners, that is why you can spew this filth about women from other tribes. Now, pack up every false word you wrote up there, swallow it and choke on it.
