They won't listen

Forgetting they are isolated in the entity called Nigeria

I laugh at them with their pride and chest beating

No friends and foes

Seriously! Igbos are hardworking, determined and rich. But how can a people expect to make progress when they don't have a single rallying point. They do not have a single elder among them whom they respect. Hausas have Buhari, Kwankwaso, Atiku etc Yorubas have Obasanjo, Tinubu etc. Who do the igbos respect? No one expect Nnamdi Kanu who is clearly leading them nowhere. These guys do not have anyone in government that they respect who can negotiate for them.

Chai!

This Ochereome jibe pained many Yorubas to the marrow.

Which one is this piece from Joe Igbokwe?

Haven't we dashed him to the Yoruba?

Tell me which Igboman takes Joe Igbokwe seriously?

If you remove kwe from your last sentence.

You've just said Igbo is a mad man in other words
Igbos are mad men.

That's not cool stop it.

Yoruba's are never Cowards it shows during the Civil War no Yoruba ran away in battle except One Chest Beating Bearded Leader of Cowards who are known to be Empty Barrels. The likes of Benjamin Adekunle Obasanjo and other Yorubas fought till the end of the war.

Bia nwa Igbokwe! Did Igbo go to war when Gideon Akaluka was beheaded in kano in the 90s and his head hung on a stick taken round the city in a shameful display? Did Igbo go to war when Mrs. Somebody Agbadime was also beheaded in the same kano during the reigns of your APC government and culprits freed by a sharia Court? Be reasonable. The Igbo fought the civil war as a last resort to survival. It was a war of survival.
Jeo lgbokwe,u are free to talk that is ur right,of course Igbos believe in freedom of expression but at times u speak as if u are under the influence of something .

We must have also learned other unique things from them like sharing property to both male and female children, religious tolerance, ethnic tolerance, transferring legacies from generation to generation. Do you know that APC National Leader Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s wife is a Christian? Do you know that former Governor Fashola’s wife is a Christian? We can learn a lot from Yoruba. Yoruba too can learn from Igbo in areas of thinking home, business enterprise, self-help, apprenticeship, etc.

When GEJ marginalized Yoruba in his cabinet for five years despite been the most vocal in an effort to make him president, Yorubas didn't threaten anybody, they didn't abuse anybody, they simply fought in a peaceful & civilized way to effect a change in 2015 using their PVC
Speer right through the hearts of those children of hate and anger who consider these noble qualities as "slavery".

I give it up to the Yorubas.

Ojukwu fled from battle and ran out of the country. Sorry, who is the coward.
Fela stood still fighting, and other prominent yorubas, so who is the coward?
You people are not really civilised.. Watch us coming out in style and with sense. You will not notice till we take over, we don't rush in shout, we have strategies
Well said! ANYBODY can fight BUT WINNING isn't by gra gra.... Thats the reason we always lost at boxing during the Olympics........ Igbos need BETTER thinking capacity!

So in all I understand here, it should be if any Igbo person is killed that we should not talk and if we feel cheated in the Country also that we should not talk rather we should be civilized. OK... Joe, you see your life. Igbos after the war has been looking for peace and equal rights in Nigeria or break up. An average Igbo man is not intimidated by anything, I mean literally by anything. Someone said that the Yorubas have the Jagaban, the Hausas have Buhari but Igbos have no one. well, I reply them that no man born on earth can rule the entire igbo land without being questioned. That's democracy!!! you talk about Obasanjo like he's a saint to the Igbos. Obasanjo dealt with the Igbos more than his people though. what do you people want from Igbos sef. Do you know how many Igbo business men that has been killed in the North. have we gone to war?? Anyone will just wake up, insults the Igbos, threaten them with killings, Call them many names, fight them in all angles of Nigeria and you expect them to cool and relax??
So democracy makes u have no leader, is that how USA is? Fufu just full ur brain.

Let me start by saying apart from my tribe (Itshekiri) my two favorite tribes are Yorubas and Igbos. So, believe me when I say I have NOTHING against Igbos. But Ndigbo needs some serious soul searching.

My last visit to SA before my current assignment, I was shocked by an encounter. I was talking to some locals (who are fellow colleagues) in the heart of Johannesburg. And when my friend introduced me as his favorite Nigerian, one of them said "...I hope you are not Igbo...because all they do here is push drugs." Boy, that encounter shook me to my marrows. These guys are not your typical xenophobic SAns. These are liberal minded Nigeria loving SAners but even for them, the reputation of Igbos as drug dealers in SA is something they could not overlook.

I am not really interested in this Joe Igbokwe issue. My own concern is this: What is Ndigbo doing about this drug smuggling scourge? Other Africans (and some Asians) are now differentiating Igbos from other Nigerians because of this illicit act.

In addition to the above, I noticed that many of the Igbos pushing for Igbo presidency 2023 on NL are also the most anti-Yorubas. So I ask you a very simple question: how do you intend to get an Igbo president without the support of Yorubas? This is a serious question. Because even I look forward to an Igbo president. However, its seems impossible if you burn the SW cultural bridge. Even GEJ ONLY became president because Yorubas fought hard for him. So, what is really the rational of these anti-Yoruba fervor?

Honestly, I know some reasonable Yoruba people know that this man has been bought with money because you don't condemn those you claim to be your people openly. There's even an adage for it.

I don't know him though but I'm sure this man can't win councilor in his hometown
A man that will be outlawed/ostracized if he sets his foot on his village and you are talking of winning a councillorship...

The Igbos abhor saboteurs... He should pray that nothing brings him back to stay permanently in Igboland... The Igbos hardly forget.

it will hard for my brothers from east to become president of Nigeria without support of people from West. igbokwe has spoken d truth bt it might be bitter, bt the truth is diplomacy is d only key for you to rule wherever place you found yourself.
but the problem I have is that most o
of our brothers that are complaining about igbokwe are also leaving in Lagos ooo, bt it's not proper to be eating someone foods and at d same time cursing the person.
