Nairaland has awakened me to tribalism as an ugly reality in Nigeria. I don't think it is as bad as what is portrayed here but it certainly exists.

Whether or not this is a positive contribution to Nigeria from Nairaland is up to debate.I think that anyone who comes here with a negative perception of Nigeria (seeing as we have a bad rep) will further confirm his bias, concluding that Nigerians are little more than savage, hating, racist AND sexist people.

The so-called "tribalism" in Nigeria is overrated! Why do we care about what outsiders think about us? - as long as this country is together - we're all Nigerians. The "tribal" thing is not only a Nigerian thing - it happens in every heterogeneous country around the world. In the UK, there is rivalry between the Irish, Welsh, Scots, English, Protestants and Catholic - even Northerners, Midlanders, Scousers, and Southerners do the same thing all the time.

I troll on NL most times and bash Igbos and Hausas - but in the real world - I jam with Igbos all the time; eat Igbo food at my boy's yard; and I link loads of Igbos girls. You lot need to stop moaning - and stop taking things to heart. Nigerians are NOT savages - we're CIVILIZED people, period. Since, there has never been a Southern Nigerian serial killer - targeting people based on their tribe - then, you lot are blowing things out of proportion here. Take a chill pill; drink some water; and laugh more.

On the contrary, it has enlightened all of us to the differences we all have and has shown us that we are more alike than different. Nigerians all have "big boy" and "big girl" syndrome and will go to the ends of the earth to boast about themselves even at the expense of their brothers. There is nothing particularly remarkable about any tribe, but a certain group of people from each will keep lying to themselves in order to make themselves appear better than others. United we stand, divided we fall. Divided Nigeria is our reality. This country still has a looooooooonnnnngggg way to go!

I think that this is another problem Nigerians have - this tendency to laugh these things off all the time and repress, and sweep uncomfortable facts under the carpet. And then we wonder why ethnically motivated killings and reprisals sporadically appear out of nowhere at all nooks and crannies. You think that our ethnic biases and all of the lives they have taken is something we should take a chill pill and drink and laugh about? I'm not sure that stuff of this magnitude is present in developed countries though ethnic alliances exist.

My own personal opinion that the "tribalism" exhibited by the better off Nigerians here (who are established enough to access the internet) spills from the inclinations of the poor masses who are ignorant enough to take out their frustration on others who seem different. For the most part Nigerians just get by and interact well when the going is good -in their easygoing way.

The "educated folks" here are much more sinister and articulate, yet playful (your words).
So they post articles that highlight negatives about their country for ethnically motivated reasons while other countries watch in fascination and keep their own dirty laundry hidden.

As we don't care about how this may affect relations and general perceptions from others for whom first impressions may count for our benefit then it's whatever. We are not exactly liked anyway.

Re: Has Tribalism On Nairaland Affected You Negatively? by linclon(f): 9:34pm On Mar 21, 2012
I have been an keen observer on nairaland for quite a while and rarely comment on posts even when am soo tempted to do so. Am here basically to update my self on stuffs happening in Naija, but recently I must say I dont fancy the trend nairaland is turning. There are lots of tribalist threads and comments, its soo bad that there are nairalanders that I can predict will always have tribalist comments especially among the yorubas and the igbos. Its really disheartening. I have spent lots of time in different parts of naija and appreciate the people I met there, why are some nairalanders soo tribalist, I may sound like a tribalist to some people now but the igbo tribalists on nairaland are always quick to run down other tribes, even with the threads they start. Must you start a tribalist thread? When a tribalist thread is started, some people cant help but to respond in defense of their tribe and then the cycle continues.
All tribes have good and bad people, please stop destroying nairaland and turning tribes against each other.I also think the tribalism on nairaland is way too exaggerated. In Naija and abroad, I have awesome friends from my tribe and other tribes. I see people getting along well in naija despite their tribal differences.

I have date guys from my tribe and other tribes while in Naija cos I dont judge people by their tribe but by the quality of their personality. I am proud to be a Yoruba lady and engaged to an Igbo man, we expecting our baby soon. To both of us, been Nigerians in foriegn land has only made us more unified despite coming from two different tribes.Our family both in Naija and abroad are not at 'each others throat" cos one family is yoruba and the other tribe is igbo. I have both yoruba, igbo and hausa inlaws in my immediate family. It only makes it more fun when we have family events.

So to the posters question, No, tribalism on nairaland has not affected my relationship with other tribes negatively, Still love my hausa Muslim friends,(despite boko haram) my igbo hubby and friends however, naiaraland tribalist threads and comments are disheartening and should be discouraged. it could affect some people's view and add more to the negative image of Nigerians in the international community.

I'm not laughing things off - I know ethnic killings happen in Northern Nigeria - but I don't think it's problematic in the South (if the ethnic bashing on NL btw Igbos and Yorubas is what you used as a yardstick). NL posters don't even represent 0.01% of Nigerians - and what happens on NL, is not what happens in REAL LIFE. We all have our differences - the same way brothers and sisters have their differences. Like I said earlier, this is not only peculiar to Nigerians - it happens everywhere. And if you think stuff of this magnitude is not present in "developed countries" - maybe you should explain why Catholics and Protestants don't get along in Ireland? Explain why the Scots call the English, Inerlanders? ANd why the Southerners in England are abusive towards the Scousers?

You're just being an alarmist, and you need to calm down. The "tribalists" on NL are not even upto 5% of the posters - you only notice them because they post a lot of vitriolic comments - with multiple IDs. It's called trolling!

The "educated folks" here are much more sinister and articulate, yet playful (your words).
So they post articles that highlight negatives about their country for ethnically motivated reasons while other countries watch in fascination and keep their own dirty laundry hidden.

Who cares about other people think about us? The last time I checked, Nigeria is a free and PUBLIC country - it's better to wash our laundry in public, to create awareness - than hide them. The average Nigerian is tired of suffering and smiling - it's high time people spoke out, and have a public discourse about our imperfections. The NL generation are the future leaders of Nigeria - and the awareness being created on here is a platform to educate Nigerians about the challenges and problems we have as a people.

As we don't care about how this may affect relations and general perceptions from others for whom first impressions may count for our benefit then it's whatever. We are not exactly liked anyway.

We don't need to beg people to like us. All we need to do is fix our country, and make it a better place - and they will respect us. America is the most hated country in the world, yet most will like to live there.

Yes it has.I have open mindedly read the Nigerian history recently after my encounter with nairaland.To be honest,the origin of all this was the betrayal of the Igbos by the yorubas and the celebration of that betrayal.I once saw some classified pictures of the Biafran war victims in 1985 while in secondary school,gawd,even satan would not like it.One of the pictures showed a middle aged woman,a survivor who told a story about how her left eye was plucked off and given to her to chew and swallow for her to live.This is jjust one of the many millions of stories about the war.Adekunle Black scorpion would go into villiages,kill women and children rather than face soldiers while Ojukwu gave a safe passage to yorubas and notherners in Igboland.Adekunle was given the chieftancy title of Are Onakakanfo of yoruba land in 1969,in Ogbomosho.Awo was also given many titles within the period for genocide by hunger while Adekunle is genocide by bullet.These two men are heroes in yorubaland.What puzzles d Igboman is that the yoruba cherishes all those pasts just for the plate of food,all their pastors,alfas and human right activists except Gani and soyinka may God bless these two people.We lost that war galantly but I can tell you honestly the whole south and nothern minority are the real losers.I've lived in the north and have seen how the housa see the whole south as conquered people including the yoruba irrespective of their alignment durring the war.What I'm giving u Is grass root and home truth,ask any aboki.Do u know that it was after the war that housa fulani gained ground in zaria and then kaduna,and then consolidated in illorin,a yoruba land.historical victories give them courage and sense of superiority ..Afonja,uthman dan fodio and civil war.Have u asked why the last road to the sea in lagos is ahmadu bello way.lagos is a target for housa.I know what they say about lagos.

true talk southern Nigeria should not jump up and down like they have gain something more than others look at all the oil wells in niger delta mostly owned by Hausa fulanis how many of those oil wells belongs to Niger delta people?none, yoruba too may be one or two but Hausa owns majority who is fooling who my sister, that's why when ever southerners boast as if they were favored in the union more than the rest of the region is a sad thing because in the true sense none of them gain anything for fighting for Nigeria,but the igbos they fought against is better off today such is life...........

Any Nigerian who claims Nairaland forum indoctrinated him/her into tribal consciousness is a bloody fool and dirty liar. Unless you are not a Nigerian and you are capable of speaking all the native languages and can perform all the cultural rites among the ethnicities in Nigeria, you might not be tribally bias. Nigeria is a basket of tribalism and anybody who denied such scenario is worse than tribal bigot.

Nigerian government has even institutionalized tribalism and sectionalism in the country through government policies that ponder to state of origin, quota system, zone and even official language of the Nigeria. Why is English language adopted as the official language of Nigeria? Yet few numskulls have the audacious pedigree to denial tribalism existed in Nigeria where people are known as Hausa, Fulani, Igbo, Yoruba, Kanuri, Tiv, Ibibio, Ijo, Ogoni, Annang, Igbira, Junkun, Nupe, Gwari, Efik, Ejagam, Atama, Ekoi, Bachama, Angas, Birom, Urhobo, Itsekiri, Ishan, Edo etc.
