smart enough to tell a dummy when they cross my path. I wonder why this so called "minority language" interests you so much that u still insists on hanging around.

Sometimes sacrifices needs to be made to bring backwards like u up to speed.

listen idummy,

you need to make better use of your limited time at the cyber cafe. You talk of sacrifice, the only sacrifice you make is when you put your brothers and sisters up as sacrifice in your paganistic ritual at the okija shrine.

This explains ur limited reasoning that made u jump into conclusion the first time. Again u've taken the wrong turn.

Akan:

So can u explain what ur ekpos stand for, I believe ur baptisimal name is Bassey.

Anuohia.

oh now you want me to lecture you, listen mr idummy  you cannot compare the cultural relevance of the ekpos to the outright greed that leads to the slaughter of your own blood as sacrifice all in the name of money.

I'd rather be called Bassey than idummy any time

Yeah because your colonial mentality is quite dominant. So I can say your full name then, its Akan Bassey Okon  cheesy

Akan Bassey Okon, when u must write or speak make sure u come with facts. But when u rant its irritating and generally unacceptable.  I was very much against Obansanjo when he gave out Bakassi to the Cameroonians, but listening to the likes of u, makes me share Obasanjos view that the habitants of Bakassi are not proper Nigerians judging from the way they speak with there tongues rolled. Am sure he would have done the same with every man in current Nigeria that calls champion, yampiun. If the Cameroonians laid claims on them. Look however u see it, it is demeaning. lol.

And am sure u particularly would have fallen amongst the group that say yampiun.

Put a sock on it, guys. This is not why I made this thread. It is not for exchange of words or to see who can cuss one out. If you want to quarrel, go to your YIM ,not on my topic. Enough of this already, please. Thank you. E yak mbre etoongo.

and your point is?

Doncaster, I am Igbo, yes. Now, I was born,bred,schooled in Uyo. I have more affinity with the Cross Riverians cos my mother is from there and I practically grew up in Akwa Ibom State. I live here, too with my family.

very true, i used to school in Abakaliki, the amount of times i had to run for dear life because of cannibals, nna men nah God wey save me.

@idummy
The only thing that puts a smile on the faces of the people of Bakassi is the knowledge that they dont have to say they come from the same country as the moronic igbos. The rest of us have to suffer that misfortune

Please teach me how to say "where is Akan?" in Efik. angry
Re: If You Are From Cross River Or Akwa Ibom, This Topic Is For You. Sosongo. by snazzydawn(f): 9:58pm On Aug 20, 2007
In Efik, it is "Akan odu ke mmong?"

In Ibibio, it is "Akan aba ke mmoo?"

In Annang, it is Akan aba ke ndede?"

I will come back for Oron translations.
