Have you ever heard of the word 'sarcasm'?.
If you have, are you certain that you know what it means?.

It's more common among the Yorubas; just as the Igbos find themselves in between Scylla and Charybdis when they have to pronounce words that begin with the letter 'R' or 'L'.

Ex: I love Manchester United because of Wayne ''Looney". grin

Only a very small group of Igbos from one state.

lOL , Cabin Biscuits; almost forgot those things exists. Beautiful. May Nigeria never loose her wonderful culture.


As an aside, here's a peculiar thing; these Bride Prices Culture are used by those that can never see anything good in African culture as yardsticks to beat us into submitting to Western Values. "Commodifying women", they would say; "women as slaves to be bought", they would add. The tragedy is, that they are blind to the fact that this Nigerian Bride-price culture places values on women in a way uncommon among nearly all other cultures of the wold. In India for instance, a woman's family pays groom price. This places more value on men and consequently, in India, female children are viewed as cuss. Many put their daughters to death. Feeding the infant girl raw rice is one favored method.

Nigeria has a lot to be proud of, unfortunately there is an industry out there selling us self-hate with a vengeance.

You are smart.

There is only a relatively miniscule percentage of Igbos outside the SE/ SS.

P.s. I wouldn't be excited about being the last resort/ other option to a man who only shows interest in me because he can't/ doesn't want to afford a marriage list.

The marriage list has never frightened a serious suitor away.

whoever introduced that unreasonable bride price thingy? what is there if two families simply come together and respectfully reach a happy agreement for their son and daughter to get married after assessment..end of story

I admire some part of the west who also have refuse the drop 'money for bride buying tradition' too, but would demand something as low as just N1000

that money part is just not okay

The actual bride price taken by the bride's family could be as low as N10. The items in the list are for the villagers not the bride's family.

Not true.
Igbo men are less likely to marry outside their group. When they do, they are more likely to marry women from cultures with equally high marriage costs e.g Efik, Ibibio, Ijaw.

I don't think anyone is afraid of anything here. But you dont expect me for instance, to start leaving in Nigeria as a foreigner overnight when I ddnt bargain for it. Secondly, biafra will co me when it will come. Until then let's do it one step at a time. It's unfortunate that pple dieing because a man lost his election. Where is this sudden push coming from. Who is behind it. Whats in it for me. The questions I asked are very important pls.

There's no love lost between the most vocal pro-unity groups and the groups that have expressed their desire for self determination. If the resistance is not out of concern, then it's from a place of fear.
The sentiment has always been there. Anyone who denies this is lying to themselves. Was MASSOB formed after GEJ lost?

To answer your questions.


ogmaskman:


What if the majority doesn't support? What next. To live side by side in peace means respect for your neighbours. Your leader, kanu, doesn't have that in his dictionary.

The answer to this was in one of my previous posts

What matters, and what would concern any sane country, is that there is a very large population who want to secede. They may not be the majority. The only way to establish this and shut them up is to conduct a referendum and if it turns out that majority support secession, their decision should be honoured. Only then, can progress be made.

"them" being the secessionists who would then realize that they do not have the full support of their brethren.
Also, it should help to allay the suspicions of other Nigerians towards Igbos.


ogmaskman:
Let's get down Abit. Whats the key thing for you in biafra. What are your expectations. What form of govt will biafra practice. Who are your likely leaders.
In an earlier post I said most pple chanting biafra have little or no idea of whats in it for them. Its more like run when your mates are running.

People feel a degree of responsibility for choices they've made voluntarily compared to when they are coerced.
My expectations are a smaller, more manageable country without the extra problems of ethnic and religious division. These two issues out of the way and we are already better off.
Leaders will be chosen the same way other countries their leaders or we could go back to oligarchy.

I'm neither pro-Biafra nor pro-forced unity. I'm pro-choice. If the majority of easterners vote for secession, I will be happy to be from whatever name the new country is given. If on the other hand, majority vote to remain Nigeria, I will be happy to remain Nigerian.

He doesn't have a message. He preaches hate, bile and lies. The saner countries you spoke about did not resort to lies and propaganda to make their points. You speak of referendum like it's a ticket to biafra. biafra is a scam. Even Ojukwu died a Nigerian. He even contested election as a Nigerian. Are you more biafran than ojukwu. Do you think ojukwu ddnt think it thru bfor he decide to permanently bury the biafra struggle.

What you think are lies and hate might be his truth and convictions....Perspectives.
You still haven't made any valid point. Ojukwu is not the voice of all Igbos nor was he a deity or spiritual leader of Igbos. If he decided to back down why should that stop people with convictions from pursuing their cause.
Why would you want to build a country with unwilling co-citizens?

We can stand if the power returns back to the regions or if we practice federalism. Not what wee have now. The saner countries that called off their unions did not resort to hate speeches and lies to achieve their aim. They had civilised and intelligent pple as drivers. the knew what they wanted and the followed thru.

So now we're pretending that the mode of the delivery is the problem, not the message. Funny.
If federalism is to work, you still need buy-in from all regions. This is something a referendum would very quickly establish.
There is no way forward for a country where some groups are agitating for secession and where leaders are elected/ appointed based on tribal sentiments rather ability to perform. Genuine efforts towards progress would continue be sabotaged unless the people are of one mind. We can never be.

Like I said earlier in case you missed it, I (and my Yoruba brothers) couldn't care less where the "oil-rich" minorities chose to pitch their tents. That is entirely their prerogative. Neither am I bothered with the fallacious tale of a supposedly balkanised (larger) ibo region.

My premise still remains the same- let everybody bear hin papa's name.

What you believe to be fallacy, is your problem.
Why don't you prove that your really don't care by "bearing your papa's name" and stop getting involved in issues concerning the SE and Niger Delta. Leave Igbos to their delusion if that is what you think it is. The Niger Delta is an ethnically diverse contraption and would definitely not speak with a single voice should push come to shove. They also should have a right to self determination.

It is important for us to understand the reason why we agitatt in the first place. Too many uninformed here. Many nairalanders see the coming of biafra as the end to all their problems. I am sorry to tell you this, if and when it eventually comes, it will be the begining of your problems. What you experience in Nigeria will be a child's play. That is when the real cry of witch hunt and political depravity will will echo loudest. Is it not this same kanu that is telling you that winners chapel, deeper life, redeem and others are Yoruba churches that will preside over the New state. Or maybe he will be a king maker. What about cases of anambra man not qualified to work in Abia civil service even when he was born in Abia state. Should I even mention the issue of Anglican Catholic quota. You wont know what you enjoy till the day you find yourself in a small box fighting to survive. Igbos in Nigeria will be giving the treatment kanu himself asked to be giving others. This whole biafra thing will have far reaching effects especially on the igbos.
The biafra agitation as it is today has taking a dangerous dimention. Kanu's hate speeches towards other tribes, pples religion, orientation, heritage and igbo leaders who do not share or support his aggressive approach will only work against the biafran nation.
I laugh when I hear pple say ' face your state and leave biafra alone'. It is funny when Every dissenting voice is tagged Yoruba or Hausa. Truth is, apart from geographical location nothing else discribrs the igbos as a pple. Not marriage, not religion/denomination, not language, not even VOICE. I say this because thru marriage the igbos have fused with others, Yoruba and Hausa inclusive. The igbo nation today can not point at a particular religion as the only religion of the land. most of the churches (Yoruba church) in the east have their hqtrs in the west. These churches have mlions of igbos attending them, and these pple will rather follow their pastors than follow kanu. Do not forget igbo ha v Muslims too.
Playing the victim all the time is not just laughable but obsolete. The south south asked for resource control during obj's tenure and got 13% derivation (still wondering what they have achieved with it though). You do not win by playing the oppressed when indeed you can win. Jonathan whom the igbos have suddenly found a hero in, warned delegates during the ill fated conference not to discuss secession. Isn't all of these enough indications to work towards building a better Nigeria?

Not the end of problems but a step in the right direction. This has nothing to do with religion/ faith.
A kingdom divided against itself can not stand.
We are not one. There is no strength in imposed unity.
It doesn't take any exceptionally smart mind to see that we can't move forward as we are.
Saner countries have followed this path in order to progress.

irrespective of what happens the minorities and the Igbos will remain in Nigeria. The southwest and the north once fed the whole country with cocoa, agriculturr abd groundnut pyramid money. Only the Southeast is barren. They cant survive on their own so in order to avoid a refugee crisis in future where biafrans will rush down to Nigeria for help, they are better to remain in Nigeria

I can see you are genuinely concerned about our well-being but do not worry, we'll be just fine on our own.

Meaning ibos can't stay on their own, ba? They still need "some of the minorities" (who just happens to be oil -rich) for their Land of the rising sun to be viable.

In essence, we are both saying the same thing.

Oh well, i wish those minorities whom you have been interacting with, for donkey years, all the best of luck for they surely going to be needing it in bucketful, as you turn their region to another "No man's land".

Biafra is a no-hoper without the (oil-rich) minorities!

Individuals are profiting from oil, the "oil rich" areas aren't.
The main attraction to the "oil rich" areas is numbers and land mass. The land mass occupied by Igbo states is very small in comparison to other regions especially after parts of Igbo land have been lumped in states with other non-Igbos and termed non-core.
The world is becoming less dependent on crude oil as has become apparent. Countries which were previously heavily dependent on petroleum products are quickly moving on to renewable energy. Demand for oil is reducing. Additionally reserves are not infinite and would eventually be exhausted.
The "our oil" tune will be redundant in the not too distant future, then we'll see where the minorities choose to pitch their tents.

Deranged minds like you are lost lots.
His Igbo supremacists ideology is a call to Referendum right?
You can continue your support for him the was Nazist sympathizers supported Hitler and got consumed in the fiasco. The best way to ask for Referendum is not the way he went about it. Riding on hates and bitterness of the masses will only results to a mob action which will consume the whole SE. A great cause does not require peddling of violence or hates or bitterness but years of intellectual campaign.
Do not tell me the man is having great followership due to his intellectual campaign but rather due to his campaign of hates and bitterness : an opium of fools and deranged minds like you. Remove his hates for Yoruba's first and see how he'll loose foloowership in droves. Next, remove his hates for APC and watch as his base is depleted massively. Lastly, remove his hates for Hausa's and see how he'll be isolated.
Now, why didn't your foolish master use a Oneness of Igbo's as his USP but rather the hatred of PMB and Yoruba's?
Yet, mischievous and hateful mongers like you will tell me about Referendum.
Nigeria was built on faulty foundation, agreed, but IPOB are building on hates and bitterness. A country formed without Nationalistic appeals but an hatred for his Neighbor appeal will never prosper.

And what are nincompoops like you still waiting for? I thought you wanna burn Nigeria to ashes right?
Try nonsense and see the Military crush the enemies of the Nations in an unprecedented fashions.

Politics / Re: "House Rent Should Be Paid Monthly In Nigeria" - FCT Minister by somegirl1: 12:57pm On Apr 08
It's easy for a non- property owner to support something so ridiculous.
Landlords invest in property for financial gain not charity. Some depend solely on rent for sustenance.
Already there are laws which make it difficult to evict tenants quickly and legal proceedings take several months . The defaulting tenant would get to live for free in the mean time and would then look for yet another person to cheat of their means of livelihood when they are finally evicted.
A swindler could live for a full year in 3 different properties paying rent for 3 months only.

This law would only drive up costs. Landlords would charge multiple times the rent if their hands are forced.

These old men need to be more innovative and progressive in their thinking.
