Yorubas: inspite of the fact that most of the times here on NL, they are always at loggerhead with us Igbos, after my tribe, they are the next tribe I respect the most in Nigeria. They are extremely fun loving- I would rather go to a yoruba party or wedding than my fellow Igbo party. You get served food the minute your butt is on a seat at the venues. Their meat and fish are usually oversized, they make sure you have food in your stomach before they go next to the items on the agenda.
They are very nice people if you understand their way, you will do better with them if you can speak yoruba fluently. Another thing, their gurls sabi carry belle easily, as in dem fertile die. .lol. .and dem no dey hear abortion o, u go must born am. They also have a very strong affinity for their cultural values. Where two or more of them are gathered be sure to hear yoruba language spoken however educated and polished they are, you will never see a yoruba man speak english to a fellow yoruba person in the company of coleagues. Also, I notice a lot of my Yoruba friends have extremely accommodating parents. You can visit your yoruba babe in her house even when their parents are around. If you become a regular face, they start calling you Okor or Iyawo. . Lol, come try dat one with my sis for my house make pupsy show you how not to 4ck up cos of woman. Also yoruba ppl have the most experts when it comes to native medcine, no other tribe does it better than them. Even in PH, owerri and onitsha, a lot of them dominate the alternative medcine market.
Seriously, if I were not Igbo, I won't mind being Yoruba than any other tribe.

Re: Say Something Good About Another Tribe by pDude(m): 9:42am On Aug 09, 2011
I like my tribe igbo but dem get as dem dey do their things whey I no like. They don't really accommodate strangers. I now live in the east but most of my own pple feel that I am yoruba or Edo and don't really associate with me, but the moment they find out that I'm Igbo, come see love whey dem go dey throway for me grin grin.

Hausa pple are very honest and content. You will see their rich associating freely with the poor without any prejudice. But no play around with their religion or women.

Yoruba pple, I love to hang around them cos they are lively and like enjoyment.

Re: Say Something Good About Another Tribe by chimaike: 10:39am On Aug 09, 2011
I love the akwaibomites & Ogonis, in as much as they came from oil rich areas that should have prompt them to be proud and lazy like some tribe from oil regions, they are very humble and hard working people. Hausa for their contentment and uprightness. Yorubas their zeal for education ( I have a yoruba friend that quitted his job that is relatively good for his full time master's program).
Re: Say Something Good About Another Tribe by akfrancis1: 10:51am On Aug 09, 2011
i like the Igbo people. they are the most hardworking, enterprising, resilient, and creative Nigerian. Also, they are true and authentic Nigeria. there are no states in Nigeria that you cannot find Igbo people contributing to the economic development of the regions, from kano, kaduna, lagos, abuja, nassarawa, ibadan, benin, kogi, ondo to other states. out of all the tribes that walk through the street of my life, the igbo are my most preferred.

When I served in the north, a cab will wait for you on the road for u to go to your house and collect something and then come back to continue your journey with other passengers.

Try that for onitsha or awka here, other passengers go break down your vehicle  grin  grin

All im saying is that there is no tribe as patient as the hausas.

Yorubas . . . . eermm, one nanogenarian 'illiterate' neighbour of ours then can read the bible -- in yoruba shaa.

Down here if you are illiterate, you are illiterate, no reading anything  grin

I like the Igbos for their sense of family unity. They always have an extended family member living with them. All my Igbo friends has niece, nephew,uncle, cousin, aunty or the other living with them. They value family ties.
Also, the igbos are always ready to help themselves. If in an establishment , the Oga patapata is Igbo, 80% of the staff will be Igbo. You will see him recruiting people from his community and anybody else that is igbo as long as their is vacancy to be filled.

I like the Yorubas for their culture and their ways of adressing issue. An average Yoruba person is diplomatic. They are very tactical and will be cool and collected even though their is chaos. He is busy thinking of the best way to tackle the problem in a way that will benefit everybody.
I also love dem Yoruba dudes. Most are lanky and handsome. embarassed

The hausas are simple and unpretentious.
Re: Say Something Good About Another Tribe by ralphade: 12:51pm On Aug 09, 2011
Love the simplicity and sincerity of the Hausas. They are not materialistic at all. Also love the Gwari people, for they are very hardworking people. The Akwa ibom people are very neat and hospitable people

Behold!! you belongs to kind, beautiful and friendly people. although i'm Hausa/Fulani, but I always cherish and appreciate Igbo people. They're just so nice & friendly.

Yoruba are like my blood brothers, becouse a Yoruba friend host me in their family house for two years during our school days. We became part of each other to date as we still visit and exchange pleasantries. So, i like them and regard them as brothers.

"Francis Adekunle Fajuyi:"

", The coup (seen then as a revolution) was successful in the North but failed in the South. Ironically, Aguiyi-Ironsi who did not participate in the violent bloodletting inherited the pieces of a shattered Republic by virtue of his seniority in the armed forces. Yet, he was a victim of the counter-coup that claimed his life alongside his courageous host, Fajuyi. Fajuyi did all he could to persuade Danjuma not to kill Ironsi but when he saw that Danjuma insisted, he told him that he could not allow him unless he (Fajuyi) was killed first. This Danjuma did before going after Ironsi himself, "

This one and heroic yoruba man to the core (sometimes) ENDEARS the tribe to me!

Same reason for me. I so much love that guy, based on the history i read about him. I wish today's Yoruba are like him. I have a few nice guys amongst them though. As for other Nigerians, i treat and deal with each as they come, i love or hate no singular tribe. I however align myself to general thoughts about the simplicity of the hausa man, the pride of the Edo man, the tenacity of the Ibo man and teh intimate tendencies of the Efik man/woman.
Re: Say Something Good About Another Tribe by Sogyboy(m): 7:07pm On Aug 09, 2011
The IGBOs. I love their business acumen. The average Igbo man, whether lettered or not can take part in business transaction even in sensitive deals and do well in it. If Nigerian government invest in the Igbo market, they'll be smiling with teeth wide open.
The YORUBAs are well attached to their culture which makes Nigeria proud in general. Yoruba culture promotes fun, entertainment and ellegance. The typical Yoruba man is a designer in it all ramifications(example is the many renowned fashion designers and architects all over the nation. Most hailing from Yoruba). If Nigerian government invest in Yoruba taste and styles, I think Nigeria as a whole will be a tourist village.
HAUSAs are still the simplest and the honest set of people in Nigeria. I think, if not for the Islamic religion that rendered most of them primitive, that part of Nigeria would have been the Nigerian Finnish(Finland people). Did you hear of the Hausa young man that designed a car in an American motor coy? It was a solo effort. There are many electronic gadgets produced or modified by them. Compare it with when there is steady supply of electricity and enlightment courses and seminars. The IGBOs. I love their business acumen.

I was going to ask this question by the way; which tribe/ethnic group has the most of local dishes? Me think it is us, Igbos, you need to be in the east to appreciate our very many local delectable dishes that will make you want to shove down pizza and hamburger into dustbin. I may be wrong though but I am yet to see any tribe with so many dishes to boast of like the igbos. I remember back in them days when my mum was alive, jeeez. . That woman made some soups that till these days I am yet to see in any local restaurant here in lagos. calabar people too have some very nice dishes too but I doubt it is in variety like that of the Igbos though.
