No, you are the one that ought to listen to the lamentations of your overhyped SE industrial stakeholders. Your elders are even crying and begging you all to quit fleeing and invest at home. Listen to the voice of reason from this Nnewi son that is telling you the Unclad truth that you all have been overtaken in commerce and industry. Listen to the voice of reason.
Speaking in an interview with South East Voice, Okolo said that Lagos, Ogun, Warri Kano and Rivers States had overtaken the South East in commerce and industry.

Yoruba Youths Have Lost Influence, Respect Of Nigerians
Yoruba youths are no longer making their valuable contributions to the political and cultural life in Nigeria. What can the Yoruba people do to restore lost influence?
Lateef Raji, a public policy analyst, in an article titled
Consequently, as a concerned Nigerian, I want to question the role(s) of Yoruba youths in the current fight against unemployment, starvation and poverty in Nigeria. This question was necessitated by my discovery through indirect observations that Yoruba youths are the most lazy, perfidious and egoistic youths in Nigeria as at today.
I discovered that the pride of an average Yoruba youth has overshadowed his intellectual judiciousness, level-headedness and sagacity. Today, among ten Nigerians submitting their resumes to multinational corporations eight would be Yorubas. Folks from my generation in the Western Nigeria are too lazy to tap from the abundant opportunities that litter the streets of, say, Lagos, for primitive accumulation of wealth.
The Igbos, and, by extension, the Niger-Deltans and the Northerners have indirectly taken over the control of economy of Lagos, Nigeria’s indisputable number one centre of success, excellence and opportunities.
The Apapa wharf in Lagos has virtually been taken over by the Easterners. The data that I got from the Nigerian custom services divulges that 63% of those licensed to transact businesses in Apapa Wharf are Igbos.
More so, data collected from licensing office reveals that owners of 56% of commercial motorcycles in Lagos are Northerners and Easterners. The lucrative transport business has been hijacked from the Yorubas.
Today, the major work of average Yoruba youths on the streets of Lagos is to collect royalty, due and charges from the Hausas and Igbos, using their motorcycles to make cool cash from their land. Ninety-five percent of transport, travel and tour firms operating in Lagos are owned by the enterprising and hardworking Easterners.
The Yorubas stay at various intersections harassing hardworking people transacting their legal businesses in the name of collecting charges and dues for the local government. I also discovered that majority of the few Yorubas riding commercial motorcycles in Lagos are locally-trained automobile engineers that have abandoned their workshops.
Furthermore, the popular Ladipo and Owode motor spare parts markets in Lagos are now solidly in the hands of Igbos. As usual, the Yoruba youths are in the market collecting dues for their local government chairmen and the Iyaloja General of Lagos. Yaba, Oyigbo, Sabo, Oshodi, Agege, Alaba, Idumota, etc. markets have been taken over by the Easterners and Northerners who are predominantly youths.
Let me also assert unequivocally that the Igbo youths are now becoming more prosperous in the entertainment industry than the Yoruba youths. Today, the Yorubas hardly tune their DSTVs to the Yoruba movie channel of the satellite television; rather, they watch some other movie channel that show English movies with actors and actresses of Igbo extraction. Why? Because most Yoruba movies are short of creativity.
I can also articulate that 85% of the CEOs and executive directors of commercial banks operating in Nigeria today are Igbos and Hausas under the age of 50. They are very talented in boardroom politics, unlike their Yoruba counterparts, and they assist each other with an amazing ease.
Educationally, the Yorubas are no longer in the top-three. According to the National Universities Commission (NUC), Anambra, Imo and Enugu have the highest number of professors and doctorate degree holders in Nigeria. Ekiti and Ondo states that used to top the list have been demoted to number four and six respectively.
In 2014, the reports of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) and the National Examination Council (NECO) revealed that the Yorubas have been upturned by the Easterners in terms of academic performance. Ekiti, a state known as fountain of knowledge, was number 34 in 2013.
The Yorubas are also missing in the sports sector. The Golden Eaglets, Flying Eagles, Super Eagles, Flamingoes, Falconets, Super Falcons, D'Tigers, other national teams are dominated by the Igbos and Hausas. The team that won the African Cup of Nations for Nigeria in 2013 was tagged Biafran national team by some columnists and social commentators, including myself.
Politically, the Igbos and Hausas are more united than the Yorubas. The result of the 2015 presidential election is a point of reference. The Hausas voted massively for General Buhari of the APC, while the Igbos extraordinarily voted for Goodluck Jonathan of the PDP.
Sadly, the Yorubas had no bearing during the election. Jonathan’s inner circle members are currently blaming the Yorubas for their son's expected defeat. Victorious Buhari's teammates are reportedly saying that the Yorubas contributed little or nothing to the success of their kinsman.
In conclusion, I want to impel my generation in the Western part of Nigeria to wake up and begin to act. The nation of Nigeria that I am seeing today is hemorrhaging. I suggest we put ourselves in strategic positions. The bitter truth is that our leaders only think for themselves and their children.

You can type whatever trash you like but it doesn't change the the fact that they're false.
You talk of Igbos being united but Abia is sacking Igbo workers, Anambra is fighting Imo, all of them are fighting Ebonyi.
Economically, how many Igbos are on the list of the 10 richest Nigerians?
Educationally, you claim to have a high number of school enrolments and Waec pass rates, but your graduates are presently unemployable everywhere they go. If you're in the HR field, ask of graduates from SE schools particularly IMT.
Politically, your votes are so useless that even Ojukwu couldn't win all the SE states when he contested.
You come online to insult Yorubas but you've forgotten that when Ojukwu was rotting on his sickbed, it was Mike Adenuga who paid his hospital bills when Bianca was more interested in sucking GEJ's bolls than tending to her sick husband.
You're all a bunch of jokers with an atrocious past and a bleak future.

That's village square gossip and childish post you just posted, Ojukwu came from a very rich family, richest town Nnewi above all Anambra state with highest number of billionaires in Nigeria, in fact his dad was Nigeria's first richest man and first stock exchange change president
|Re: Drone View Of Owerri (Photos) by Nobody: 3:23pm On Mar 21, 2017|
Ojukwu comes from the wealthy family of Sir Louis Ojukwu. However, the people surrounding him were so useless that they refused to fly him abroad for treatment. In fact, if you must know, a greater proportion of Sir Louis Ojukwu's wealth was tied in court cases instituted by his children against themselves and the government.
@ The bolded part. If so, why do the wealthy people from Nnewi run to Lagos to make money and only sleep in Nnewi when armed escorts are guarding them. We all saw pictures of Ifeanyi Uba's father's burial in an expensive casket and the paupers who were pictured in the village.

You must be mistaking me for one of the mediocres produced by your lineage. Direct your rants to the dunce you call your family head.

|Re: Drone View Of Owerri (Photos) by greatnation2: 1:53pm On Mar 22, 2017|
The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has said that Lagos and six other states control about 90 per cent of cash transactions in the country. The other states are Rivers, Anambra, Abia, Kano, Ogun and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
CBN Deputy Governor, Operations, Mr. Tunde Lemo, who disclosed this.
