Yoruba Man, Hausa Man, But No Biafran, On Forbes List. . . by igbaodun: 3:37pm On Mar 08, 2012
Why is that?

Are Ibos just lazier than other Nigerians?

So, why's your name not on the list since you're smart. What a waste of space.

Re: Yoruba Man, Hausa Man, But No Biafran On Forbes List.   .     .

Another way of looking at it, is that Igbos and the South South peeps are being marginalised in Nigeria.  lipsrsealed

PS. the FG should allocate me a couple of oil wells and see if my name wouldn't be in that list in five years.

Another Tribal bashing thread?
I wonder how come Americans are not talking about the state where Gate was born or rides . . .
Re: Yoruba Man, Hausa Man, But No Biafran, On Forbes List. . . by ACM10: 4:01pm On Mar 08, 2012
It all comes down to marginalisation.

When Obasanjo unjustly bans Ibeto's cement, rice etc to give way for Dangote's ascendance, what do u expect?

Mind you that Biafrans are not close to the corridors of power and all the government policies over the yrs has been harsh to them.

But, individually, we are not doing badly compared to other ethnic nationalities.

Now tell me how many Chinese are in that list? Does that mean that Indian or Nigerian economy is performing better than that of Chinese?

Isn't it obvious? You cannot remain a greedy, close minded, sole trader and be on the Forbes list. Ever!

Ibos are not recognized because the source of their money is questionable and fraudulent.

Gbam!

Useless thread. Yet, Yoruba and Hausa beggars litter the streets of Nigeria. Hardly would you see an Igbo begging. Go figure.

There is no difference between you and the OP.
Re: Yoruba Man, Hausa Man, But No Biafran, On Forbes List. . . by dappssee(m): 5:06pm On Mar 08, 2012
Thought the list had Otedola and Aliko. Didnt know its Adenuga. I understand they tried assessing Adenuga's wealth lst year but they could only scratch the surface. Aliko's is easy because he has quoted stocks

Re: Yoruba Man, Hausa Man, But No Biafran, On Forbes List. . . by Onlytruth(m): 6:35pm On Mar 08, 2012
Simple way to look at it is that these two cornered all oil blocks after winning the war.
It is all about the civil war; but I thank God that the Ijaw are beginning to ask some hard questions.
Let's wait for about 5 more years when Anambra oil would be fully pumping (and Ijaw take back some of their oil blocks), then we can recalculate. cool
Re: Yoruba Man, Hausa Man, But No Biafran, On Forbes List. . . by yarodin: 6:49pm On Mar 08, 2012
All these fools shouting "No Igbo person in forbes list" are your names in the list? I don't know about Hausa and Yoruba oooooooooh, but in Igbo land we do not celebrate other peoples wealth. I now understand why there are beggars all over Hausa and Yoruba lands.

You are full of excuses. During Abacha regime when Yoruba was marginalized, what was Igbo doing? You ppl were kissing Abacha's arse. Orji Kalu got blocs from the military. The Ubas got from Obasanjo.

They just like to blame anyone but themselves for the lack of creativity and tact.

You chaps should not worry about The Igbo people, but about the high rate of poverty in Yorugbaland that has forced Yorugba kids to become beggers. Some now go to Igbo homes to beg for food e.g.

See oil soup filled brain mentality.
You wallow happily in your poverty because another man you may have never met is a billionaire?!
I curse lord luggard for ever putting me together with such people.TUFIAKWA.

We igbos, would rather help our brother out than hoard money to appear on a stupid list.
Re: Yoruba Man, Hausa Man, But No Biafran, On Forbes List. . . by dayokanu(m): 1:09am On Mar 09, 2012
Its because Forbes hates Ibos

Forbes is jealous of Igbos

Why are they not recognising money from Otokoto business?

Thats not fair

^^^You care to provide fact/figures to show Abacha favoured Igbos over and above Yorubas (in appointments; Oyel blocks; award of contracts; sighting of contracts; road construction; education sector; health sector; etc)? Or you just feel you can post any conjectural cr.ap in furtherance of your pointless online battle against the much loved Igbos?

I need to provide facts/figures that Abacha hated Yoruba? Really? Yoruba was out of the picture, so the PTF cake was left for Hausa and Igbo. I hope u r not just another diasporean who left naija during the 80s cheesy. Dude, you've lost touch completely. Orji Kalu was mad at OBJ for taking back the oil license that the Military gave to him. What abt that Kanu (daniel kanu or something like that) efulefu who campaigned for Abacha's transition.
Re: Yoruba Man, Hausa Man, But No Biafran, On Forbes List. . . by Toaskarity(m): 6:24am On Mar 09, 2012
Its because of the war! why is a Niger deltan name not there too? or is Igbo the only tribe in Nigeria?

remember Igbos have been put to back sit after the war, hausas and yorubas that won the war is reaping the good things in it.

but anyway Igbos arent doing bad atleast you hardly see one begging cos we forgot about the past and moved on, God wil continue helping his people.

i think the jim ovias, pascal dozies,innoson,ibeto,oji kalu are worth well over a billion dollars , that they are piping low could be the new strategy to escape ethnic hatred. Ibru the owner of federal palace and sheraton hotel shoudl be there 2 no thanks to sanusi and his banking reforms.
