acidtalk: I am DISSAPOINTED at Seun and his Moderators. 99% of these post should have been HIDDEN. What is the correlation between the post and the ethnic war going on right now.

Nigeria is a failed state and no wonder we have high level of unemplyment in this country. To even think that most of these people are supposed graduates and iundergraduates yet having conversations like motor park touts and street miscreants.

People who always find faults in a tribe or religion by condemning them hardly ever go far in life.

Look at the likes of Dangote, Babangida, Obasanjo, Adenuga, Dantata, Harry Akande, and the others, this men knew how to get along with every single ethnic group and religion all to get what they want when they want it.

Most of you have let sentiments kept you poor and lonely, later you will be wuick to blame the government for your failure in life.

NONESENSE!!!
a tribalist like you preaching,hmmm
acidtalk: .....And to say I almost paid N2,500 for this book at the bookstore today.

Damn!!! Thank God for this, though no doubt Achiebe is a wonderful writer.

So so glad I didn't pickup the book some few hours ago.
so if you dont buy achebe would starve to death?

I know of Fabian Osuji, the erstwhile minister. I also know Wilfred Osuji, the burgeoning professional footballer.Also familiar to me is judge Chile Eboe Osuji, a legal luminary with the ICC.Who the heck is Thomas Osuji? I suppose he is just another attention seeking professor.

Thomas Osuji is simply a malcontent! He is only trying to get reputation from being moronic and being a saboteur. Anyway, those who witnessed the war, including the colonial masters and some western nations know Achebe knows what he is talking about.


Let's not forget that Pa Prof. Achebe was a foreign minister and ambassador representing Biafra during the war, so he knows what he is saying. Btw, Nigeria can hardly be one from all available indicators if at all we can shun pretence!

The only book that qualifies to be a yardstick to Achebe's book is....O yes! i now remember the name as leaked to press "Awolowo replies from the grave!" Untill that book comes out and reviewed by Gawoon, people should hold their peace.

When you snoop more,maybe one day you'd finally hit the truth.Ogugua and osuji are the kind of ibos Nigeria wants for peace to reign not a tribalistic skunk like you.You dont need to hate your tribesmen for being indifferent to your lies.

9jacrip: I hate commenting on topics like this, it usually ends with our brother's from the east debunking the claims of their fellow easterner who has supposedly gone against their mind state. Rather than being objective, they resort to rhetoric balderdash and you'd also find my brothers from the west capitalizing off of the situation rather than being analytical.[/size]

Anyways, Achebe's work got floored, should one be looking forward to a rejoinder?

And the work,a book that bookstores cannot keep up with its demand gets floored on nairaland. shocked shocked
Seriously

I think some of you take this forum rather too seriously ,nothing here gets beyond these pages but that book is going places.

Another excerpt from the thought provoking article written by the critical thinker, Dr. Ozodi Thomas Osuji:

Achebe forgot that he was writing about Africa with written records. T[b]here is ample documentation of what transpired in Nigeria between 1966 and 1970, the era of the Nigerian unrest that Achebe was writing about. Whatever he said could be fact checked, verified or found as not based on facts.[/b]

Apparently, Achebe was not interested in facts. What Achebe did was provide his opinions on events that took place during the period in question without bothering to give the reader the opinions of those who disagree with him, the opinions of those on the other side to the civil war.
For some reasons, he assumed that his reader would be so simplistic as to accept his opinion as facts and leave it at that. Apparently, he has such grandiose opinion of his expertise and authority that he assumed that folks would accept something just because he said so

Aunt Baby Mama please relax, I don't know how many bookstores cannot keep up with its demand (I pre-ordered it off of iTunes even before it got released and most scholars I know seem less interested in it) - anyways, sales do not determine IF/HOW a book/work gets floored, I'm talking about its appraisal here. Your determinant for a viable work seem based off sales, too bad. You will be fine.

Da infamous: they think N/L is all and all bush people..

You and Babymama are both classical examples of what I stated in my first post - embittered easterners who feel betrayed as usual 'we have been betrayed'.

Both of you should 'feck' off, #OKBYE!

Bath a pig, comb a pig, a pig shall remain a pig. The piracy you referenced in your silly post was meant to quench the thirst generated by the book. How many books have seen a day of piracy in Nigeria when the original copy has not reached the shores of the county? I thought you were slightly below average.

^^^But of course the phantom that goes by the name osuji would seem more intelligent to you and your sorry ilk; afterall, he arouses you guys with his bitter and manic hatred towards a people you guys can't stand.....can't stand, yet refuse to fault awo who teamed up with the north to ensure you shared the same country with the very people you despise.

Any reasonable person knows that things have not been done fairly or on merit in this country since the late 60's (Igbos being wronged or not is besides point), and all we ask for is for everyone to be treated fairly, and for effort and handwork to count for something in this country.

And Azikiwe serving under Balewa was what?

I don't really know if Chinua Achebe is a greater writer, or not, because I've never read any of his books... However, I have read the reviews and summaries of some of his books - and as Dr. Ozodi asserted in the Op-ed, he's too engulfed with writing about himself(albeit in a fictional way) than anything else... And all his books are centered around the arrival of the Europeans in Africa - and books like that have a tendency to subconsciously mis-educate young Africans that civilisation came to Africa with the arrival of the Europeans..

Perhaps, that's why Achebe's books are well celebrated among Europeans because it makes them feel superior to Africans..

Even though I shared a little bit of the writer's sentiment against Achebe, I really hope that the non-literary consciousness of the average youth of today will sweep in and save us all from an impending uprising. For good reasons, I hope that majority of young people today, keeps pinging, watching movies, listening to songs and wasting considerable time on Facebook, if it would be a positive diversion from what these old men are plotting. Old men should not plan wars for young men to fight. I once expressed that Prof Achebe ought not sit within the coasts of the United States, and set these volatile issues aflame in the minds of today's young people. The inter-connectedness the 21st century offers us these days does not leave us worrying about what happened yesteryears again. People mostly think of the future these days, either they are Igbo, Yoruba, Hausa, Idoma,Tiv, Ibiobio or what have you. Some words are better left unsaid.
