what do you mean his people's conducts don't justify his legacy blah blah blah. Just pay your respects and move on.
Mind you the Igbos have always been the number one supporters of our people. They have invested heavily in our lands, supported our political ambitions in 2003, never fought us and have always stood for positive change in Nigeria.
I don't know where you base but when you come abroad and accept help from an Igbo in your trial period, then you will know just how stupid your bigotry here is.

Meanwhile,his Yoruba counterpart was showing us the Noble prize.Anyways,thats still better than displaying drugs.He still remains one of the few good story book writers to manage to emerge from that tribe.
