A Plea For Peace Between The Igbo & Yoruba by Nobody: 8:33am On Apr 07, 2015
The recent happenings in Lagos have created so much tension between the Igbo and the Yoruba. There is so much bitterness and hate talk flying around and this will not do us any good.

When you try to break a wall using a sledge hammer, you need to apply several blows before it gives in. You might need to apply a 100 blows but one thing to note is that it is not the 100th blow that breaks the wall, it is a combination of effects from the very first blow. This brings me to the recent statement credited to the Oba of Lagos to the Igbos. I condemn the statement and I believe every right-thinking person should do the same in the interest of peace and civility. What I want to tell my Igbo people is that the Oba's outburst is not just as a result of the forth-coming gubernatorial election in Lagos but a combination of factors. I hear some of our people calling Lagos a no-man's-land and this is just too bad; this is the height of arrogance and disrespect. How can we move into a Yoruba land, enjoying God's blessings and prosperity only to turn round and tell the people that their land belongs to nobody, that we feed them, and that they cannot survive without us and all the other rubbish and provocative stuff??

Clearly the Oba has been harbouring this anger as a result of the arrogance and provocation of our Igbo people and just could not contain it this time and lashed out.

My Igbo brothers, can we sit down and ask ourselves why we have been so aggressive towards the Yorubas? What have they done wrong to us to deserve this provocation and arrogance? The Yorubas are a very peaceful people and we turn round to call them cowards and all sorts of names. What do we want the Yorubas to do to prove to us that they are not cowards, rise up and go on a killing spree? These Yorubas even returned all our properties to us after the civil war something even our close neighbours in the SS didn’t do!

What does it take to respect your host and do as they wish my people for Christ’s sake? We are prosperous in Yoruba land and are enjoying the land and have no problem with the people, all they are for is for us to know our limits and give them their respect is this too much to ask from us? Let me ask my people one honest question, why are we not shouting that Kano is a no-man’s land The Yorubas have been very nice and taking all these insults from us and we turn around to point our fingers in their noses and call them cowards! Jesus! We claim to be Christians and worship God, is it not written in the bible that blessed are the peace makes for they shall be called the children of God?

My Igbo people please see a sample of what is making the Yorubas very angry with us:

1. I WILL ELEVATE EZE NDIGBO TO THE STATUS OF OBA OF LAGOS - JIMI AGBAJE.

2. IGBO WILL DETERMINE WHO RULES LAGOS- IFEANYI UBAH

3. LAGOS IS NO MAN'S LAND.- IFEANYI UBAH DURING TAN CAMPAIGN.

4. IGBO DEVELOPED AND CONTROL LAGOS- JIMI AGBAJE DURING GEJ CAMPAIGN IN AKWA IBOM

5. WE MUST PRODUCE THE NEXT DEPUTY GOVERNOR OF LAGOS- EZE NDIGBO

MY QUESTIONS TO IGBOS,

1. CAN OBI OF ONITHSA ACCEPT ALL THE ABOVE MENTIONED?

2. CAN EMIR OF KANO ACCEPT ....?

3. DO YOU HAVE ANY SINGLE TRIBE IN YOUR CABINET IN THE EAST?

4. CAN ANY TRIBE CLAIM ONITHSA OR ABA TO BE NO MAN,S LAND?

5. CAN OBI OF ONITHSA ACCEPT THE ELEVATION OF SARKIN HAUSA IN ONITHSA TO OBI STATUS?

[size=16pt]I want to use this medium to appeal to well-meaning Yorubas to forgive the childishness and foolishness of our people. Please drop any plans of violence being planned against our people and all other diplomatic ways of punishing our people in your land including Lagos.

We recognise that LAGOS IS A YORUBA LAND and will respect that. Please I appeal for calm and understanding. I am inviting some Yorubas I respect on this forum to help reach out to your people to be calm, I have personally decided to start a campaign to reorientate our people as God helps me in my own way to change the way we think.

Even God told Moses that if he could find just 10 righteous people he will not destroy Sodom & Gomorrah. Igbos like me are far more than 10 in Lagos and other areas of SW. Please do not bring out the beast in you and and please allow better judgement prevail over emotions.[/size]

.With all due respect, i disagree with most of the things you said here,
I will try to answer some of your questions, but before I do, let me remind you that Lagos was a state capital and was developed with Nigerians money, so it belongs to all of us, Lagos will not be what it is today if not for all our efforts. Nigeria should develop Enugu as much as they developed Abuja and Lagos and let's see if we would not move back home, give us an international airport and a standard seaport
*Kano is not called a no mans land because it was not once a state capital,
Let me ask you,
*how would you feel if someone wakes up tomorrow and start telling you that Abuja belongs to his father or grand father ?

Good topic from OP.

But however, we are sorry to say its better to put an end to such displays of madness by your Ibo kins. To ensure the safety and progress of the Yoruba future, we can best silence Ibos howbeit through non-violent means. . I do not think frustrating the voting powers of ibos is a violent means of addressing the situation, or is it? The bitter truthis your Ibo kins WILL NEVER STOP their madness till Jesus comes. Cutting down on their long and hard-earned political weights by for instance removing the 2 Lagos Ibo reps will definitely kick off a peaceful co-existence.

I think the OP agrees to my point.

If it is the general wish of the Yorubas to kick out the 2 Lagos Igbo reps, then go ahead. All we want is peaceful coexistence and prosperity please. We don;t want any violence/bloodshed in Yoruba land including Lagos.

This nails it on the point. You are wise Bro.

Curtailing the political ambitions of Ibos in Lagos by removing them from sensitive positions will do the job of ensuring a peaceful coexistence as you'v said. In addition, instituting a regional policy of ''..can vote BUT cant be voted for..'' against non-Yorubas in SouthWest will sum up a great move that will correct the situation on ground. I also dont wish for unnecessary hostilities against hosts in Yorubaland. Yorubas are peaceful and we still want to keep that pride.

Eurobomber, You have said it all, many of us here that i know are bonafide indigenes of Lagos and we always feel sad when they refer to our land as no man's land. We were all raised to be respectful and simple, more reason people think we are coward. They see Hausa people as brave cos they kill at any slighest provocation, we are peaceful people and the Eleko of Eko was vexed but he went too far.

I respect you so much bro, God bless you broda.

I reside in PH. Authoritatively i can state that no yoruba man nor their tribe has been threatened to elimination by any monarch in Rivers state for choosing to vote their choiced candidate.

Currently, the chairman of Rivers state environmental sanitation authority is a yoruba man appointed by Amaechi. The commissioner of commerce and industry is deltan, yet indigenes of Rivers state didnt threaten the yoruba tribe nor deltans to elimination. We have some wards where non indigene cud contest for elective positions, nobody is threatening hell. So what makes it right for the oba to threaten the igbos to elimination for simply choosing to vote a yoruba man not even igbo?
Lagos is still part of Nigeria and whoever that doesn't like igbos preferred voting choice in a democracy shud do his worst..
