This is an interesting perspective, but it over looks an important fact, and it's the fact that what we call the 'agbada' pre-dates Islam. The agbada came before Islam, in the same way that the "cross" pre-dates Christianity, but today is synonymous with the religion. The cross was merely an execution method for criminals.

The agbada was worn by desert and Sahel dwelling Africans before Islam came, however today many of the desert an Sahel dwelling Africans adopted and practice Islam, but not all. The agbada came from Africans, Arabs came from Africans and Euroasians mixing, but Arabs still retained much of their previous African culture, not the other way around.

DawatNama:


Agbada is a result of Islamic influence, it's borrowed from the Arabs by the wandering futha jallon Fulani tribe that conquered much part of Northern Nigeria and Western Nigeria. Igbos have no agabada or danshiki oversized dressing because there is no Islamic influence in Igboland.

The Cross was invented by Carthage and later copied by Rome as capital punishment. Christians laying claim to the cross is cluelessness. People have been dying on the cross before Jesus. None of them took away sins until Jesus, very funny

The main reason I brought up the cross was to contrast it with what we call the 'agbada.' Specifically pointing out that the agbada was indigenous to Africa and pre-dates Islam in a similar way to how the cross pre-dates Christianity.

The agbada is the traditional wear of Africans and was later copied by Arabs who took it from Africans on the continent. Arabs are merely Africans who left the continent and mixed in with Eurasian groups and created a multi-racial group we now call "arabs."

We Africans to an extent think we were just Unclad, with no cultural or religion, and everything came from the outside. This is untrue and is seen from the fact that Arabs actually took their traditional style of dress from Africans on the continent. The few things we can give ourselves credit for, we need to give ourselves credit for.

One thing as a people Ndiigbo must learn to do, is to give honour to whom honour is due.

Forget all this Igbo enwere eze rubbish, it is causing us as a people to be very disrepectful and act like we dont have culture.

This will lead us no where.

What caused the death is mare 40k. After conducting there usual account on Wednesday, the boss started accusing the young man of shortage of 40k. After denying the allegations, the boss insisted on collecting the alleged missing money back.
At the heat of the arguments, the deceased now pleaded to the boss to deduct the money from his November salary, but the Shylock oga has his own plans.
He took a screwdriver nearby and stab the boy on his lower abdomen. The deceased collapsed and was rushed to a nearby hospital. But it was too late he was confirmed DOA - that's, death on arrival.
When the news of chigozie was broken to him , he took to his heels. But he was arrested yesterday and will be aligned today

As a people, i just think Ndigbo are not proactive and desirous enough to walk the talk and move the entire ethnic group forward to where we ought to be as a people! It's less of a problem at the community or even state level....but we struggle to replicate such fervour at a regional or pan-Igbo level! This is one of the negative effects of not having a centralised regional political structure!

As for ideas and suggestions....we get am plenty! The problem is to move on to the next level of implementation!
