Hmmm... this romance is suspicious. Different people with different culture and reasoning. I hope it works sha. The Yoruba man will be looking at the Igbo man like "I don't trust this man o" The Igbo man will be looking at the Yoruba man like "you saboteur".

If we are serious about restructuring, our senators and not govs should be having this meeting. I know they have sold you the lie that this meeting is for restructuring and you seem to believe lol. This is a plot to come back into political relevance by the southwest after they have been used and dumped by Hausa, but I tell you, if Yoruba really want to make up for what they have done, they should start by admitting they erred in 2015 and hold a meeting to apologize

The relegation if even exist is not as humiliating as the one suffered by Igbo in the hand of hausa fulani in 1959,1979,1983,1993,1996 since nnamdi azikwe sold them as slaves to tafawa balewa and they have never apologize d for that grin.Thank God for Awolowo opposition then. cool

Southeast has been in relegation,wilderness and servitude since 1960 and it will be forever according to junaid Muhammad the new Igbo bride:

www.dailypost.ng/2017/10/10/igbo-man-can-never-nigerias-president-junaid-mohammed/



Your hausa fulani overlords have sealed your destiny since 1960 and nnamdi azikwe was signatory to that cool
Even when fayose is coming from the west and Atiku/sule from the north,in honour of their slavery contract in 1960 they decided to kiss Atiku Ass.

kiss the truth!

June 12 presidential election winner, Abiola's murder by Hausa without any fear of consequences. After being promised presidency, Awolowo was jailed and in an attempt to jail him again, he ultimately committed suicide. Shonekan's rubber stamp appearance as president after being instilled by Hausa for 3 months are removed(and this is the worse humiliation of all). Yoruba have shown time and agian that they are willing tools in the hands of Hausa. Awolowo was a filthy, over ambitious, suicidal, fetish killer who got the end he deserved in hell after drinking made on Aba rat poison to end his political life as an underachiever. Obasanjo who became a Yoruba president twice was instilled by Igbo and Hausa without the input of Yoruba votes cos Yoruba can never in their lives rally round to get a political aspirant for presidency that will be generally accepted by the whole nation instead we relegate you to errand boys just like APC/ Hausa did Tinubu, Osinbajo and Fashola. And PDP/Igbo/Niger Delta are doing Fayose and Femi Fani Kayode

Recently Victor Atta, the former governor of Akwa Ibom issued a statement STATING CATEGORICALLY that Biafra is ONLY for the Igbos, he made it clear that his people have no business with Igbos apart from being neighbours.

The Igbo speaking tribes in the SS, do not want to identify as IGBOS, instead they will tell you they are from Benin. I know what I am talking about, the DELTA IGBOS have time and again rejected their Igbo brothers, they don't want to associate with the Igbos, so why will an Efik or Itshekiri man agree to have anything to do with the Igbos? Especially when their own Delta Igbo brothers have rejected them? Please do your research and read widely, I have included some publications below for you to look at. PLEASE WATCH THE YOUTUBE VIDEO OF SUNDAY OLISEH, the first statement was to reject IGBOS

In the Niger Delta, we are found of telling the Ikwerres, Delta Igbo etc that they are Igbos but they will scream and tell you that they have nothing to do with Igbo people of S.E, so I don't understand what you mean by "And when igbos talk about SS, the talk about the indigenous igbos living there. Not ur urhobo, ijaw, itshekiri or any other minor tribe so get your facts straight". Please do you research. Please check these links below for your information.

I will like to state that the people of eka and agbor have always guarded their culture with fiercely in the face of all oppositions , we as eka people know where we come from and we are proud of our origin , we have a long history of kingship and culture that is why many people will not let us be , it is not new for a tribe to have two or more ancestory , e. g . take itshekiri , they have both benin and yoruba ancestory , but that does not make them benin or yoruba , today , they are know as itshekiris . but the founding father of their tribe was the a benin prince called iginua , son of oba olua of benin . we as ika people of agbor and owa will not wish to be drawn into stupid arguements with those who do not know our history and who do not know our culture and whose sole arguements rely on nearness of language as a proof of where a people come from , if he is a historian then he or she will know that changes in language can occur due to large migrations or trade or due to other factors .
please can any one tell me what agbor means in igbo language ?.........

Igbos Of Delta State And Crisis Of Identity [Part 1]

If there is any separate and distinct tribal group that has been contributing a lot to the development of Nigeria, it is none other than the Igbos of Delta state. I believed that if IBB's regime had given us our cherished Anioma State, we would have fared better than under the present gang-like hegemony of the Urhobo, Itsekiri, Ezon, Isoko and Ijaw. We never bargained for this present raw deal with IBB. In fact, we were better off under the Benin Kingdom than under the present Urhobo ‘Korokoro' arrogant domination and hegemonic tendencies.

One of the basic problems with most ethnic and tribal groups in the South is that they do not forgive. We always have this tendency to add new grudges on old grudges which does nothing but create negative multiplier effects. While the North is moving on, even though there are proven cases of wide spread poverty in that region, the South is always antagonising itself.

What has happened to our Southern Governors meeting which was initiated by Tinubu and others? It has faded as quickly as it was started and yet the Northern Governors Forum is still on course. "Ego-massaging" is daily killing the South, and yet we claim superiority in the Education sector. Acquired education, which ought to act as a catalyst to forging closer unity and ties among us, has seemingly become irrelevant in our quest for a united front.

Education is supposed to be power but in the South, because of our ego and pride and this innate tendency to sell out over a pot of pottage, we have deliberately refused to use our education for effect. We are always busy fighting ourselves. Honestly, I think we need to initiate the process of de-schooling ourselves.

Those Who Say They Are Not Igbo

IN recent years there have been attempts on the part of some Igbo communities to deny their identity as Ndi-Igbo. Classical examples are the Ika Igbos of Agbor environs in Delta State and the Ikwere Igbos of Port-Harcourt, Rivers State.
The Nigeria-Biafran War, among other accidents in history has the blame of inflicting “mere anarchy upon the people” of Igbo in general and it appears that since the end of the war “the centre can no longer hold.” Port-Harcourt, up to 1967 had a majority of Igbo population....

YOUTUBE VIDEO WHERE SUNDAY OLISEH FROM DELTA IGBO DISTANCE HIMSELF FROM THE IGBOS


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T8g3fQn3zuA


What's with your obsession with the Igbo People ?

Who's talking about Biafra here ??

U must be living in the past for not seeing that the stereotype of people denying their non-Igboliness has been greatly minimised.

I know that your likes will be greatly shamed with they finally unite.

Victor Attah didn't speak about Biafra in bad light.
Although his entitled to his opinion.

From his interview what I deduced is that the current call for Biafra is championed by the Igbo since they're the ones most affected by marginalisation and injustice.

If Sunday Oliseh distanced himself from being Igbo of what effect does it have to the much larger Igbo populace ??

Is he better than Ngozi Okonjo, Ibe Kachikwu, Julius Agu, Uti Nwachuchwu, Alex Chuka Iwobi, Jay jay Okocha, Igwe tupac, Francis Odega, Sunny Odogwu, Tonto dike etc who are proud of their heritage ?

Everyone knows the Truth now no matter how you'll wanna blackmail no one is falling for it.

Sweerychick is not in anyway addressing herself to be Igbo, She's jhux trying to tell the length she can go in the spirit of brotherhood.


Same way we have the stereotype of addressing northerners to be Hausa that's how the Address everyone down South to be Igbo, I no you've nt been to the north.

The truth is always bitter and I know that my comments will hurt you as an Igbo person so I understand your harsh reply. About my name here, well if you click on my profile you will see that I have been on this forum for years so I did not chose the name for this purpose. I am a PROUD NIGER DELTAN. Now my observation - we have absolutely nothing against the igbos in the Niger Delta, we have always welcome them but I still have to say the truth which is that the hatred and bigotry from the Igbos towards Yoruba people is too much, read the comment section of newspapers, blogs, Facebook, NL, Youtube and other social media forums, you guys really need to tune down a little. The yorubas also make hateful comments but mostly in defence. How many Hausa/Yoruba/Ibibio/Ishekiris live and work in Anambra, Imo or Abia? 2/3% or less. You guys are not welcoming at all. Its always about "we" "us", "me" hence, the reason why we ended up have 4 senate president from the SE within 4 years because every single Igbo man wanted the sit for HIMSELF.

You hate them but you are the second largest tribe in Lagos, Ogun and Ibadan. You are all over the South South, yet you still go about social media with bigotry. All I am saying here is that it is time to unite and work as a team enough of the hate. Simple, I am not here to banter words with anybody. I have too many Igbo friends for that and their women are still the best wives material in the south so I don't want to quarrel unnecessarily. Let us unite and work as a team.









Shut the fucck Up and shove your crappy advice in your ass.
U cannot insult Igbo and at the same time preach unity.

U know that NigerDelta comprises of Nine States, Tell us yo tribe lets know who we're dealing with stop hiding Under NigerDelta.

U must be new on social media, NL to be precise.
Igbos are too busy to bother themselves with yuroba, Any insult you see from the Igbos to the Ndi Ofe jhux know that the Ndi ofe call the first shot and the insults were out of self defence.

For you yo ask defence how many Hausa/Yoruba/Ibibio/Ishekiris live and work in Anambra, Imo or Abia state you must be an Ndi Ofe who doesn't travel beyond his Brown roof jungle, do you know that Onitsha and Aba serves as a transaction joint for people for people from Akwa Ibom, Delta, Edo, Bayelsa, Rivers and even far north as Kano, jos on daily basis ? Aba has been home to everyone. That has never been any news where the King threaten a group of people with lagoon.

I will want you to show me a link were non-Igbos were driven for the east or deported.

An average Igbo man ventures to a strange land with absolutely nothing save his doggedness and determination.

Even in Maiduguri there are still Igbos there not because the people are welcoming but because an average Igbo man aspires to succeed wherever he sees himself even if its a desert.

U claim Igbos are the second largest tribe in Lagos, Ogun and Ibadan all over the South South, My question is that do you feed them ?

Have the cried to you for food ?, Have the begged you for alms ?

If you can't venture to other region then stop this ur cries of been welcoming, I swear its getting boring.

I have said it over and over again that I do not have any ill feelings towards Igbos, why should I? What have they done to me? We have married some of their women in my family nonetheless, I will still point out that the rich mixture of various tribes from all over Nigeria found in the Niger Delta and in the South West is not there in ANY IGBO state in Nigeria. Igbo states are mainly inhabited by Igbos with about 1/2% of the population being Yoruba, Hausa and others whereas in Rivers, Bayelsa and Delta we have millions of them living amongst us, as for Lagos, Ogun and Ibadan, they are uncountable in those places.

I can CATEGORICALLY tell you that the Ikwerre man and Delta Igbos do not even want to hear the word "Igbo" they detest that word. I am interested in history and I have engaged so many of them in a debate about this topic, they do not want to be associated with Igbos, IT IS NOT MY MAKING, this is merely my observation. Yes there may be one or two people who may not mind being associated with Igbos but MAJORITY OF THEM INCLUDING THE PRESENT GOVERNOR OF DELTA STATE, do not want to be seen as Igbos. It is in no way my making, being a Niger Deltan who grew up there, most of my associates are from various tribes in the Niger Delta. As young people who regularly discourse and debate about the political future of Nigeria, whenever, this issue about ethnicity in the Niger Delta comes up, the Igbo speaking tribes will tell you that they are NOT IGBOS, so I put it to you that your assertion that those groups are now embracing Igbo is not true. You do not relate with them and you do not live among them so do not tell me what I know too well. Having said that, there is nothing wrong with being Igbo, this is only an intelletual debate which should now end here before I am labelled anti Igbo which I am not. I have a few of them in my family now and many of my friends are Igbo and who knows, I may marry one of them sooner or later, lol.

This whole debate started just because I tried to point out an observation that this name calling and online quarrels with Yoruba people is not healthy, we should learn to forget the past and work as one. But no, people want to continue the infighting and hatred.

We the Niger Delta people have naturally come to accept Yorubas and Igbos as brothers, hence, in every major Niger Delta city, you will see Yoruba and Igbos doing business and living amongst us. We are the only men in Nigeria who will chooose to marry Yoruba or Igbos over our own Niger Delta sisters, that is because we have learnt to be blind towards tribes. Let me tell you this, up until a few years ago, the ROAD TRANSPORT WORKERS ASSOCIATION was headed and completely dominated by Yoruba people in Bayelsa just as Igbos took over the PH branch. We have Igbo principals in our civil service. In Lagos some top political positions are occupied by Igbos but truth be told, that WILL NEVER HAPPEN in the South East. It is time to put a stop to all that, let us embrace ourselves as Southerners and Unity for our own good. We are stronger together. Imagine what would have happened if Nnamdi Kanu had embarked on consultation and solidarity visit to prominent Yoruba and Niger Deltans? If he had tried to build bridges and bring everyone together under an unbrella, I can tell you that the North would have been on their knees but instead IPOB people were continually bashing Yorubas and any Niger Deltan that tries to caution them, they were producing maps and adding other people region without first trying to exterblish friendship - a serious provocation. My Igbo brothers must now realise that it is time they open up more and allow other people in their midst. They must seek to build bridges and forget about the hate and online fighting. We need each other.

Please dont reply to this. Thanks

And let me educate you, most igbos living in delta I know don't deny their heritage of being igbos, the accept the fact the only thing is that the dissociate themselves from this current Biafra agitation, which I agree with them. But don't bring your Igbo phobia to create division amongst us the larger igbo community

The larger Igbo community? I thought you were Ibibio/Efik earlier?

Ok, I think I agree with you, points well made. Igbo kwenu!!! Lol, long live Igbos. It is well.

I have said it over and over again that I do not have any ill feelings towards Igbos, why should I? What have they done to me? We have married some of their women in my family nonetheless, I will still point out that the rich mixture of various tribes from all over Nigeria found in the Niger Delta and in the South West is not there in ANY IGBO state in Nigeria. Igbo states are mainly inhabited by Igbos with about 1/2% of the population being Yoruba, Hausa and others whereas in Rivers, Bayelsa and Delta we have millions of them living amongst us, as for Lagos, Ogun and Ibadan, they are uncountable in those places.

I can CATEGORICALLY tell you that the Ikwerre man and Delta Igbos do not even want to hear the word "Igbo" they detest that word. I am interested in history and I have engaged so many of them in a debate about this topic, they do not want to be associated with Igbos, IT IS NOT MY MAKING, this is merely my observation. Yes there may be one or two people who may not mind being associated with Igbos but MAJORITY OF THEM INCLUDING THE PRESENT GOVERNOR OF DELTA STATE, do not want to be seen as Igbos. It is in no way my making, being a Niger Deltan who grew up there, most of my associates are from various tribes in the Niger Delta. As young people who regularly discourse and debate about the political future of Nigeria, whenever, this issue about ethnicity in the Niger Delta comes up, the Igbo speaking tribes will tell you that they are NOT IGBOS, so I put it to you that your assertion that those groups are now embracing Igbo is not true. You do not relate with them and you do not live among them so do not tell me what I know too well. Having said that, there is nothing wrong with being Igbo, this is only an intelletual debate which should now end here before I am labelled anti Igbo which I am not. I have a few of them in my family now and many of my friends are Igbo and who knows, I may marry one of them sooner or later, lol.

This whole debate started just because I tried to point out an observation that this name calling and online quarrels with Yoruba people is not healthy, we should learn to forget the past and work as one. But no, people want to continue the infighting and hatred.

We the Niger Delta people have naturally come to accept Yorubas and Igbos as brothers, hence, in every major Niger Delta city, you will see Yoruba and Igbos doing business and living amongst us. We are the only men in Nigeria who will chooose to marry Yoruba or Igbos over our own Niger Delta sisters, that is because we have learnt to be blind towards tribes. Let me tell you this, up until a few years ago, the ROAD TRANSPORT WORKERS ASSOCIATION was headed and completely dominated by Yoruba people in Bayelsa just as Igbos took over the PH branch. We have Igbo principals in our civil service. In Lagos some top political positions are occupied by Igbos but truth be told, that WILL NEVER HAPPEN in the South East. It is time to put a stop to all that, let us embrace ourselves as Southerners and Unity for our own good. We are stronger together. Imagine what would have happened if Nnamdi Kanu had embarked on consultation and solidarity visit to prominent Yoruba and Niger Deltans? If he had tried to build bridges and bring everyone together under an unbrella, I can tell you that the North would have been on their knees but instead IPOB people were continually bashing Yorubas and any Niger Deltan that tries to caution them, they were producing maps and adding other people region without first trying to exterblish friendship - a serious provocation. My Igbo brothers must now realise that it is time they open up more and allow other people in their midst. They must seek to build bridges and forget about the hate and online fighting. We need each other.
Please dont reply to this. Thanks


For your information am not here to discuss Biafra, That's another Argument on its own.

U were the one jumping from the issue on ground to other irrelevances, what concerns what's on ground with the Identity crises of some Igboid tribes which you mischievously brought up ??

I know your types with core Igbopobia who when caught resorts to saying that they'd have Igbo friends, Igbo family members, Igbo girlfriends bla bla bla. Shove that crap in ur stinking ass.

I guest you're ashamed to tell us your tribe, At least Sweerychick told us hers,what's urs ??

The way you keep bringing up Yoruba,Lagos, Ogun, Ibadan jhux gave you away.
Ndi Ofe can never hide their bigotry no matter the level of education they might have.
No wonder you had time to go about observing who's Igbo and who is not, to even meeting Okowa who told you that he's not Igbo.
He's Yoruba I guest.

This whole Argument started start becos U came up to accuse Igbos of hatred and tribalism of which deep down you know you soul reeks with tribalism.
When its Obvious Ndi Ofe started the whole crap.
Instead of you to adjust you begin posting links of who's Igbo and who's not.

And what's the issue about Igbo occupying political positions in Lagos ? didn't they deserve it ?
Political position is given to those who has stayed, Invested and contributed positively to the society, If you want one in the East you can ho there and replicate such act.

I hope you can CATEGORICALLY tell me how you were able to differentiate between an Igbo man and an Ikwerre man so I'll know how you concluded that Igbos took over ROAD TRANSPORT WORKERS ASSOCIATION PH branch.

I really don't like discussing Biafra, But No Igbo bashed Yoruba in their quest for Biafra its the other way round.
Yoruba only got bashed becos they never minded their business, constantly poke nosing in what doesn't concern them.
I wunt wanna post threads here of how Yoruba constantly create thread jhux to spite the Igbos on Biafra issue of which they reacted.

oro lo fe gbo.

Nnamdi azikiwe sold you ibos to perpetual slavery of his hausa masters by shamelessly deciding to become an errand boy to tafawa balewa despite Awolowo's overture for a southern solidarity in the first republic. Alex ekweme furher confirmed your status as slaves to your hausa overlords by being a house boy to shehu shagari in the second republic.

You ibos are 10th class citizen in Nigeria. The weeping boy of Nigeria. Ibos are the sacrificial goat used to appease the gods of Nigeria.
Abeg save the details. Does it mean yorubas do not have any icon? I wonder why Yorubas hold a man who cowardly committed suicide out of fear of a fellow human at such esteem. Here in Igbo land such a man, no matter his class will have no honour.

Any union with Yorubas or Arewa in it, for me as an Igbo man, is totally unacceptable.

A Homogeneous Igbo speaking republic is my first option.

A loose confederation with Igbo friendly groups in the old Eastern region is acceptable.
