ImperialYoruba:
Ibos are rejoicing because the slave master called them ni.gg.ers. Slave owners place more worth on their dogs and treat it better than they do even their house slave. Ibo n.ig.gers are jubilating on the account of a cruel slave holder celebrating their value in the field.

Chukwu okike abiamo!! grin grin

Not rejoicing but amused by the author's apt, albeit racist, description of some ethnic groups.

Current Lagos population is estimated to range between 17-20Million people.

You can't hide this, its all over the internet. Sorry eh

Can you postulate reasons why Lagos's population would have grown since 2006 while the SE's would remain unchanged?

OPCNAIRALAND:


When a white man extols a slave it means the nigger is a good slave worthy of keeps. What makes a good slave? Obedience, simple! Yessa Massa!

In Haiti, the Dahomeans and Ashantis revolted. In Bahia the Yorubas revolted...to the point that many were repatriated out of Bahia and back home to West Africa rather than risk another uprising and victory in the hands of slaves.

It shows what Iboes have always been, and what they are till today .....a people perfectly endowed for servitude!

I stumbled upon this thread and noticed that no one had properly addressed this brilliant comment. The emboldened statement is very correct. However, what you seem to have missed is the author's description of certain non- Igbo groups, including yours, as "good niggas" i.e the subservient and compliant ones.
Indomitability and stubbornness, traits attributed to enslaved Igbos, aren't quite compatible with a servile dispostion.

The joke's on you.

look,i have known about the ogbunigwe since my pry sch days.i come from enlightened stock and was exposed to nigeria,world and biafra history early and not stuffs any newbie can pick on google.i never denied those innovations but the fact i believe someone like u will not be too thick to recognize isthat banjo was the no1 expert on military engineering in nigeria at that time[ask elders if in doubt]so,pray tell me how he would find himself inbiafra among ragtag soldiers and not make use of his ingenuity
The emboldened is disputable given that what you posted in not just speculation but nonsense. There were several other engineers and scientists in the Biafran army. Some of whom have been credited with inventing the Ogbunigwe, arguably the most remarkable weapon created by Biafra.
How then can you conclude that Banjo designed the weapons just because he had a degree in mechanical engineering?

Your source is a yoruba man? Really?
One minute you people deny that such inventions ever existed, the next minute you downplay their effectiveness and if you must accept that they existed and were effective, you attempt to steal the glory.
I will need another source for this information. Preferably the publication Adetowun Ogunsheye referenced, unless he gave an eye witness account. If it's true, there should be multiple references.

I am also waiting 4 ur source that victor was in biafra for just 2 months.source please,or u need me to define that for u,girl.

Civil war, 6 July 1967 – 15 January 1970. Common knowledge, no references require.
Banjo date of death - 22nd September 1967. Still common knowledge but see some refs below:
1. Africa 1960 - 1970: Chronicle and Analysis p. 532
2. Biafra: The Nigerian Civil War 1967-1970 - p.28
3. The Trial of Biafra's Leaders p. 108

I hope I wouldn't also have to explain to you how 6 July to 22nd September is 2 months or just over 11 weeks.

so what point do you intend to drive home? Although I despise and detest Buhari because of how he thwarted democracy in 1985, his harsh economic policies and his static nature, that wouldn't warrant me to go as far as naming my dog Buhari. The fact remains that a dog in Calabar is more useful and revered in ss/se than Buhari. However, it inciting to name your dog Buhari, especially in south west and northern Nigeria

You are indeed what you called yourself, fool that is. You just proved me right. What has your false inventions of 1967 got to do with a man that died in 1955? Typical, you should have at least wait for your brothers you left on conveyor belt to give you a heads up instead of trash you just spewed. Just keep the rest in your throat cos you make no sense at all, and as you already know, I'm no holds bar here, I deal in substance.

I'm tempted to blame the Nigeria education system for your situation but that would be unfair as it has produced some decent minds. Looks like it might be genetic.
Like you rightly pointed out, a man who died in 1955 would not have been able to write a book on the civil war. But somehow, it skipped your limited mind that multiple persons, from different generations, could bear the exact same name.
You searched for the author's name and assumed that the first result must be him. Your type are the problem with Africa.
You are a lost cause and an utter waste of my time.

It is now acceptable by all that, to have a smooth ride flogging and neutering ibos, just sprinkle few grains of sugar in their mouth. Northerners are known for repeating rumors, and what this man said is just what he has been hearing ibos say all the time and where is the best time to repeat it to make ibos feel good than when he wants to pass a message ibos would tear him into pieces over and like magic, it worked. Ibos couldn't see pass the feel-good sting. This is now fast becoming a new way to get messages across by cowards without the ibo swam of locusts coming after them, but to what end? Where are the records of these inventions by independent bodies and why have ibos not built on it or is it because they are all lies like they always tell them? The same way they are putting Chinese cars together and calling it 'manufactured'. The people who couldn't feed themselves during the war had the wherewithal to manufacture a common teaspoon? Use your heads Nigerians, don't believe anything from known liars. People with the need to feel good will always cook up something for that purpose. Coming back to watch the rest of the yakata dance.

close to a million people visit India every year for medical tourism......
they have a vibrant IT sector that encourages outsourcing of IT services from western nations to India......
they are one of the largest producers of vaccines, pharmaceutical and medical supplies.......

most of these was achieved by Indians abroad who returned home to seek opportunities and investments, thereby developing the continent.

Nigerians in diaspora should start thinking of doing same.....
enough of excuses....
Asia was no better than africa in all ramifications when Asians in diaspora started returning back to develop the continent using technology they stole from western nations.
insanity is when a man help his neighbour to develop his mansion while ignoring his own derelict bungalow begging for renovation.






I disagree. No individual is under any obligation to develop Nigeria or any other country.
He probably wouldn't have the same opportunities in Nigeria as he has in Germany. It is his exclusive right to decide where he wants to live and where he wants to develop. You can't force patriotism.
