The minister of education in 1966 when Balewa was killed was not Igbo, he was a Yoruba by the name Richard Akinjide.
The Foreign minister ( external affairs) in 1966 also wasn't Igbo, he was a Northerner by the name Nuhu Bamalli.
It doesn't take much to see that this your write up is an ignorant one tainted with Igbophobia and usual falsehoods

Are those the only portfolios in the government. Why not provide the full ministerial list with the names of the occupants and their regions and let us be the judge?

When exactly did Ndiigbo show dissatisfaction over Balewa government? The last time I checked, the tussle was between Awolowo and Balewa.

What Ironsi needed impose on the country so that everything could belong to Ndiigbo was extreme regionalism cum confederation, and not unitary system, seeing as Crude oil were recently discovered in Mid-west and Eastern regions, with both under Osadebey and Okpara leadership, seeing as you lots had accused Ojukwu and Ndiigbo declaring Biafra because of hunger to Claim the oil wealth of the nation for Ndiigbo alone.

You lots can't seem to keep your story straight.


It has everything to do with tribalism, this your write up, and is exactly the reason your colonial entity called Nigeria will remain a failure .

Your truth are lies to me, and my truth lies to you, we simply can't find a middle ground, this therefore is an invitation to chaos.

I didn't even read his post thoroughly as he's just doing what a lot of the Igbo haters are doing in this thread- changing the subject in order to avoid actually challenging the premise of this thread.

Between 1964 and 1966 when the coupists struck , TB doubled as the Prime minister and External affairs minster.


When was the last time you checked 'cause Awo was already in prison when the coupists struck. In fact the tussle was between TB and Zik when the latter, after the 1964 general election initially refused to invite TB to form a cabinet whilst at the same time imploring the military chiefs to intervene in the imbroglio until he was advised by the chief justice and the military chiefs that their operational power resides with the PM and not the ceremonial President when he finally relented.

What you have posted is not logical. Why would we want to overthrow a government that was in our pocket already?? The Eastern region was enjoying projects like the Niger Bridge, Okpara was on fire commissioning likes of Obudu Cattle Ranch, Trans-amadi industrial layout and Nkalagu Cement etc

Try harder


Are you trying to deny the igboish of the coup now ? It's you who needs to try harded to rewrite history.

Awo downfall from Grace to grass was via Akintola/Saraduna/Balewa alliance.

Zik alliance with SW via AG in UPGA alliance was thwarted by Akintola and Kayode, who aligned themselves and parts of SW with Balewa in NNA alliance.

It remains Awolowo who had an axe to grind with Balewa, and it's not surprising that the coup aim as masterminded by Awolowo, had Balewa penciled for elimination.

and he got idiotic foreign trained graduate igbo soldiers, while imprisoned in calabar, to kill only the northern and western leaders who were his enemies and spared ALL IGBO MILITARY AND POLITICAL LEADERS. makes sense cool

Who said Awo didn't have a sense of fairness? cheesy
