shut up.. £20 was a very big money in the 70s when awolowo gave you guys .. upon all your chestbeating, no igbo man is worth 1b usd..
Bunch of chestbeating gorillas gringrin
Imagine your mentality, so having 1bn USD makes one important or what? What do I need that kind of money for when our roads are a mess, youths unemployed, no power, etc.?
That's how egalitarian the Igbos are; no singular person should wield that money but should be spread aboard.
Btw, show me one from your tribe which isn't from the sheer benevolence of the useless politics in Nigeria.
Safe for Dangote, other 2 or 3 after him are oil well related which they shouldn't even have had

Not true. N20 then was about $55. In today’s money that’s about $1000. 1000 times 360 is N360,000! You think that’s a small amount!
As for egalitarian, here is the definition.
e·gal·i·tar·i·an
/iˌɡaləˈterēən/
adjective
relating to or believing in the principle that all people are equal.

In the North no matter who u r, u sit on the floor and when u die u r buried within 24hr in same manner as any pauper. There is not much incentive to be too ambitious for money. With Ibos it’s the exact opposite.
Among them everything is dependent on how much money u have, including how u r buried!
So, sitting on the floor equates them all?
Oga check their social status index. Oga, what's the ratio of educated to non-educated northerners; I bet you it could be up to 0.0002, much less than one for also employment & standard of living.
Funny you. N20 then equals N360k now? You should be at Alibaba's show.

I knew a thread like this will bring out the vile Igbo haters! Just ignore the fools!

What does it profit a monopolistic man if he gains the whole world, but suffers the indignity of his region/ethnicity being declared as the headquarters of poverty in the world!?

The dickheads never factor in the lopsided political-economy that's been in place since the late 60s that has placed the entire country into the pockets of a few individuals from 'chosen' ethnic groups! They go to bed and sleep well insofar as they believe the Igbos are behind them on all fronts, but the moment a Igbo becomes the leader in any sector, they get all restless and start plotting how to either ruin his business or bring him down a peg or two....like we've seen with Air Peace, INNOSON and IBETO cement!
Honestly, I came to NL thinking Igbos were on the offensive and was against them then until I realised they were on the defensive. Imagine a news like this, they have started shouting Igbos.
Upon all the opportunities the North & West had & still have how is it that Nigeria is still this horrible?
I once heard Angel Merkel say, "What do I need all these kind of monies the African leaders steal for? I don't need to secure the future of my child personally as we (Germany) already has a system that will take care of them even after I'm gone".
Hardly these rich guys tell you their stories of ingenuity that got them all those monies. In Nigeria, power & riches hardly is about hardwork, intelligence or even planning but just which region you are from.
And shamefully, these guys come in here to applaud it and most might even be unemployed, lack skill nor even run a business

Why do u think Hausas are not so ambitious about money unlike Ibos? Because having a lot of money doesn’t accrue u much extra. Even in their mosques anybody can lead prayers. They don’t have all sorts of hierarchy of bishops and deacons and popes. How dare u compare Hausa and Igbo in terms of seeing everybody as equal regardless of wealth (egalitarianism )?!
