An Explanation On Whether South South Has Inferiority Complex by dukeprince50: 11:12pm On Apr 22, 2020
There was a thread created here on NL by a moniker okpalaAnambra.
He was asking if South south people have inferiority complex lol.
I'm just gonna explain things so we understand the south south people very well.
South southtribes unlike Igbos, Hausa or Yoruba does not actually go around telling people about their tribe, it's not something you find here in South south.
While the Igbos claim they own SE, Yoruba claim they own SW and Hausa is N, no tribe here claims SS and they are reluctant to mention individual tribe, it's different from inferiority complex
Just to confirm, Take a tour to port Harcourt and ask any port Harcourt born who owns portharcourt, trust me that person will be confused and most answer you will get is nobody own portharcourt but there are different part of the city that are populated by a specific tribe.
This is one reason why a greater part of Rivers State have rejected to align with the Igbos cos u hear them saying Igbos is Rivers and Rivers is Igbo. SS tribe does not reason like that and will rather want a ND republic instead of Biafra.
Most chest beaters in SS will tell you "you know me? I be Niger Deltan boy o" or "I be ph boy o"
You hear musicians saying portharcourt firstson bla bla they hardly call tribe,
There are musicians like Dorcan mighty, Timaya etc, I tell you, most people don't know their tribe.
People like Gentle Jack, Agbani, Taribo west etc, except you are a ND, you won't know what part of ND they come from, though we have people that still talk about tribe here but they are few and can even be counted.
Go to Delta, you may not hear tribe for a week but you will hear people shouting "area" upandan
Therefore Ilegend was not ashamed of his tribe when he said ND. Don't get it twisted

im from the ND region, I feel reluctant calling my tribe on NL here though sometimes I call it, it's not inferiority complex, we are just trained that way, we just felt we should identify ourselves wen it's serious otherwise we choose to be addressed by ND boys or ph boy or Bonny guy, proud Deltan etc

Na, is inferiority complex, reason is that the Igbos from the Niger Delta can't say they're from ND, someone using ND is definitely hiding something..I am yet to see an Ibibio person or Efik or annang not mentioning his tribe...

Yes he made sense but you are too stupid to understand.
1.He said we want Niger Delta Republic not Biafra.
2.He said there are many tribes in Niger Delta.
3.He said we are proud people.
4.He said we don't make noise.
5.He said we like to call ourselves South South or Niger Deltans instead of the actual tribe we come from in South South.

have you ever been to ND? If you haven't, I won't want to discuss this any further. U can take it or leave it.
If those tribes that destroy the image of Nigeria outside the countryare not ashamed to call tribe, what gave you the impression that a ND will be ashamed?

Lol at the the line saying you know more of South south, I'm not here to argue who knows more about SS. I just tell you how we reason here, accept us that way, this is not the first thread I've seen where people said ND is ashamed of tribe.
I've seen two And the both thread is created by Ibo boys. I just don't understand why you choose to insult us and also want us to be part of a visionless Biafra. Good luck though

This shows you know little or almost nothing about Rivers State, let alone South south. When someone mention SS, he is automatically Ikwerre.

Exposure is a what you need. I don't like the word "tribe."

It's one of the words that have kept you and your countrymen backward and will keep keeping you and this country backward until you break free.

Please, I won't read or reply you again.

By the way, you think I'm proud of being a Nigerian, let alone coming from a tribe in Nigeria?

I'm only proud of being a Rivers man or a Niger Deltan — not a tribe. Tribe is the beginning of conflict. Example: Igbo, Yoruba, and Hausa.

Don't you know I laugh those three tribes when they fight and argue online? This world is not your home, so don't carry tribe on your head, but peace.

Have a good night sleep, dear.

that's the worst part of it all, the fact that they insult us, threat us like trash and yet, most often than not force us to join with them..

I have very good and amazing Igbo friends in my area, but the reasoning of some of them here, scares the hell out of me...

Niger Delta comprises 9 states: Akwa ibom, Bayelsa, Cross River, Delta, Edo, Rivers, & Abia, Imo, Ondo.

You can see the first six states are d South South while d others are in Southeast & South West. However, they are all classified as Niger Delta bc they are oil producing states. In fact, d 9 oil producing states in the federation.

So, it will be very wrong for anyone to want to portray anything dat has to do with the 9 states outside its name (ND). It is only when an event does not warrant the inclusion of the other 3 (Abia, Imo, & Ondo) that they regard dat gathering/Forum as SS. Example if the forum is strictly geopolitical.

Also, tribalism is not really common in ND bc inter marriage amongst its divers ethnicity have established a solid cultural diffusion. Hence, you see a child whose father is Urhobo (Delta) while the mother Andoni (Rivers). Many of us Niger Deltans are having such background including myself; even down to my great grand parents. As it stands, i am related to almost all 9 ND states by blood lineage.

WE ARE NOT INFERIOR & WE WILL NEVER BE INFERIOR TO ANYBODY. As a people, we have embraced our diversity in tongues & culture in good fate thus we depict our solidarity by calling ourselves by our very own surname NIGER-DELTA.

Stop confusing NDDC with Niger delta. That some states are part of NDDC doesn't make those people Niger deltans. We know ourselves. Its nobody's business how we choose to identify ourselves. I'm proudly urhobo and never for once have I needed to hide my identity and I don't know any other urhobos who hide theirs.

You say we're not proud of our tribe, at least we were proud enough to collectively dissociate ourselves from you. Nuff said.

Lol, finally you've told us where you're from which is rivers...I can now understand why u don't wish to identify as an ikwerre man because you feel ashamed and discriminated to be called an ikwerre BC ikwerre people are very lazy and more of cultists, now I fully get,..you can change the narrative of your ikwerre and not claiming Niger Delta when Ibibio and Efik don't see eye to eye, same with urhobo and itsekiri
