The kind of hatred that some south east people have showed to Wole Soyinka is a lesson for all Nigerians. No matter the sacrifice you make for some of this people, they will still pay you back with hatred and insult. I hope people will learn from kongi's experience.
...they just can not stand the fact of his being a Nobel laurete which Chinua Achebe could only dream of ; they can never forgive him this 'sin'! Let them continue to hate him till the afterlife...this is their burden!

This is why the Quran says when Rumour mongers (Idiots) comes to you with any news, check it out, seek out the truth before you react, lest they push you to regrets later.

If this had been in some other countries, the bloggers will be taken to task on these misinformation, made to appologise openly, and sanctioned for this type of rubish bloggs.

odave, in the old days, we gathered as kids on moonlit nights to listen to stories told by elders (or just older folks). Stories that always ended up with pearls of wisdom such as has stood us in good stead in life. Respect for others is one important message we seem to have lost these days where people form their values from things that only provide ephemeral satisfaction. The urge to form "ethnic big cahuna" and lash out willy nilly on a website is one such stupidity they would have "taled-by-moonlight" out of us in those formative years. I don't know how old you are but you remind me of those who conjured up and told those stories in soft tones, but with strong messages. I only hope the 'kids' here are listening.

odave:
NL and mods..two threads makes front page now

1. The tortoise 'flaunts' something in a new picture

2. Anything that can cause e-fight between igbo and yoruba

Anything in those areas will surely make front page.

I think some force are behind spliting southern nigeria. They know how ignorant and gullible we are. I believe special op is on NL to achive that aim. That's y you see hate thread of 2010 making front page in 2015.

I don't blame anyone with tribal hatred coz its a general weakness of nigerians,( our tribe is always the best, we are the only one marginalized, the hated one etc) I only blame mods who won't stop pushing trash to front page, educative thread don't make front page no more.

To those sponsoring hate thread be it foreign or local secret service, God is watching

To those who jump from one thread whenever they see anything yoruba or igbo on NL, be wise. Not everyone in SS and SE is pro PDP and not everyone in SW is pro APC. Stop tribalizing everything

To the mods who enjoyed ppushing thrash to fp whenever they mention your name, no amount of money or traffic is worth causing chaos you can't finish

...meaning that those who latched onto the statements in support of the derogatory statements will be called what now? How can some one say this...


yibobasher2:
The great prof. First Nobel laureate winner in literature from Africa just justified my moniker.

Yeebos need to unite first and act without sentiments before they can be accorded the respect they clamoring for from other major tribes


And another one.......




Abugab:
I.B.O: I Before Others. Subjectivism and selfishness is in their DNA.
They will collectively suffer another political miscaculation in this era and I am waiting to hear anyone of them cry marginalization.
You don't expect those who voted to be neglected and your matter taken up and before the rotation reaches South East the term would have been over. Trust me, when elections come again, they will still repeat the same error and that makes me wonder if the Ibos are politically cursed?
Same error they made in Lagos too and it will surely come haunting them.
I no send greedy people jor.........



So when people people have these opinions based on a misquote or a false message, then where does that leave them... be honest. These are tribalistic rants which seem to be recurring in Nairaland as they hide their identities from the public and shame their orijins***

GEJ gave money to every tribe. He gave to the hausa's the igbo's and the yoruba's, however, the hausa's collected his money and ate it, that was why Muazu PDP chairman, Bala, FCT minister and Isa yuguda Bauchi state governor all couldn't win bauchi state for GEJ.. Same also with Yoruba people, he gave money to the Oba's and Militia factions of OPC, SW collected his money and still didn't vote for him, if I were oppourtuned to collected jonathans money, I would have collected his money and still not vote for him, however, ibos sell their concience for money its a well know and established fact, Goodluck gave ibo's money and ibo's couldn't see beyound the money like yoruba's and hausa's saw, the igbo's were just to blind to see beyound the money, they were too blind to see for "Love of Country" beyond GEJ's money like the yoruba's and hausa's saw. Professor Wole Soyinka is very correct with his postulations and hence reasons why SE voted GEJ. Its not far fetched.



Hear this numbksull.....
So all tribes collected money yet Igbos remained faithful but for that reason are branded soul sellers? Once again..... you have shamed your orijin***

I don't mean to be funny but what 'credibility' does this place have?

Everyday it's 'graphic pictures' of some horrendous accident on the front page or someone trying to pit the rest of the world against Igbos. As if Igbos are the ones killing other Nigerians, kidnapping girls and using them as sexual slaves.

Igbos are not the enemies of Nigeria, learn to see what is right in front of you.

Yeap you are right. All this propaganda is also why nairaland is loosing advert slots. See LindaIkeji blog (http://lindaikeji.blogspot.com/) people keep advertising on her blog
because there are more productive information there. Everywhere on linda blog is advert and Nairaland has been on for longer....full of tribal and hate word wars!

Thank you very much. I've read through many posts and many of them are blaming Igbos for doing what one can hardly ignore if he/she was in their shoe. Nobody asked questions about the worthless and useless mod that moved that thread to the front page.
Hatred sure don buy some people conscience

lindaikeji's site is no better than nairaland. There is just as much nonsense on her blog as there is here - much of silly stories that she has on her site wind up on nairaland, such as the poorly researched claims about Soyinka.

Linda's is a lot more constructive though in my opinion and not tribal driven unlike nairaland

the story on Soyinka it has is this real one
Soyinka denies blasting the Igbos, says whoever believes he did is a slowpoke
not the one trying to insight tribal hate.

I'm really less concerned if prof actually said that or not. They fact still remain that the Yeebos have no unity among themselves, they are the only tribe wishing downfall for Nigeria despite living peacefully and making money in the country. History has shown that the Yeebos vote on their stomach has rightly said by who wrote the speech. If not, how would you explain the gburugburu himself Odimegwu Ojukwu losing presidential election in 2003 in eastern nigeria. He did not even win one state from eastern nigeria under an igbo party APGA. Who can the ibos trust if they can't trust this man. It may sound tribalistic, but the fact still remains that the ibos must learn how to co-exist peacefully with other tribes for them to be given due respect

Well said sir. I was born in early '80s, I started using internet in the year 2003 but I must confess internet users of today are more bitter and filed with venom. Should there be an avenue to take up arms against one another, many would gladly do it. But I believe NL should not be championing hate. They should delete controversial threads and promote love. I can't remember the last time we collectively condemn BH instead its usual abuse one politician or the other. I'm not a saint but I believe there should be mods who knows what they are doing. NL should not be the tool of discord in nigeria I'v gained a lot on NL, I joined in 2007 but nowadays opposite is d case, its either someone is trying to dupe or scam you or curses and abuse allover d threads. God help us all

Nigerians reaction to news is quite surprising .... Illiteracy and poverty everywhere ..... Soyinka wouldn't say what "TheCable" quoted ..... as usual Nairalanders has started the bashing already ........ Nowadays , I check the source of news and the credibility of that source before I post comment.


Somebody called my attention yesterday that Buhari has dropped Fashola and Fayemi from Ministerial list , he said he read it on Nairaland , he was very vigorous about the news he started telling everybody in the office ..... I asked him to calm down and check the source quoted by the Op on Nairaland ....... it was a blog.
I only spread spread news that are confirmed by credible news outlets.... If blogs have no integrity in them, I have integrity in my name...
