We Yorubas are never victims. We shall watch while Hausas and Ibos dance Python dance and reduce each other's population. Then, we the Yorubas will come and help you stop the fight. Just as we did in 1970.

cstr1000:If you want Kanu to run away like his mentor, make it absolute.
He should also adopt the mode Ojukwu used to escape from Nigeria because that is the only way he can leave this country, disguised as a woman.
The make up offer still stands.

So what was all the posturing and insults for? Never thought I'd see the day resident NL tribalists like you will pay homage to the"cattle rearers from the North "

So the aim of the agitation was not really secede after all. Thank God you guys are revealing your true aim. And you were planning to drag the Niger Delta region into an agitation that will further only your interest. Now I know why my people say never trust an Igbo man. He will always use you to further his own interest.
BTW, can you tell me why the Igbos should be treated specially by the Nigeria government? How much does the South East as region contribute to the Federation account that they will give the a fully funded South East Development Commission? Are the Igbos the only tribe suffering in Nigeria today?

drefe2real:First of all, maybe you need to tell me how much the North-east contributes to the fedeeration account, you mindless bigot.
The South east contribute more oil to the federation than the entire north, and yet the north has the the NEDC.
The South-east was supposed to get the SEDC since the 60s but failure of governance made sure it failed.
Besides, i thought you claim want a developed one naijeria? If you think there is any other region as dynamic to faciltate a developed Nigeria than the south-east then you are seriously deluded or high on hate.
A fully developed aba and Nnewi has the capacity to provide serious revenue to the country, but ofcurse, hate will never allow you see it.
The oil in the east in abia and Imo which are part of the current niger-delta however how small, if the revenues are left fully to the east is already more than enough to facilitate the necessary development. And then you can keep your SEDC.
And where did i say the end-game is not biafra? Are you incapable of reading and comprehending?
Don't quote me if you can't read. You want a developed one naijeria and you think that can happen without a fully developed igboland?- keep dreaming.

IPOB should truly abandon street protests. Go underground and organize themselves on how to proceed against an army determined to exterminate the people.

Ondo state is part of the South West and it has oil too. Going by your logic, they should get a South West Development Commission too.
When Jonathan was in power, why didn't the South East lobby for a development commission then. As well all know the South East was the cornerstone of his government.
The North East does not have oil, but it has been destroyed by war, so the Northern politicians lobbied for North East Development Commission. The current Northern-dominated government supported them and the North East region got it. Why didn't the South East do the same during Jonathan's government?
Can you tell me of any major project the South East politicians brought to the East during Jonathan's tenure? At least, the South East dominated Jonathan's government, so the region should have something to show for it.
I like the fact that you said that the little oil in the East can take care of the region. The Easterners should join the fight for restructuring. That's what you guys at the East should be fighting for.
