the Igbo situation in nigeria is a complex revolving cycle, and i think the Igbos can do a lot more to win friends.

their pride (justifiable) in recovering so well from the war has been allowed in part to turn into unwholesome arrogance & chest beating using many trumped up statistics to tell everyone else how superhuman they are.

A little dose of humility, stopping the constant blame-game will help reassure other nigerians. But Then again, these other nigerians have to extend a genuine hand of friendship devoid of suspicion.



You are very right. I think the SW has done just that (the genuine hand of friendship) by allow their businesses to florish in Lagos, have the eze of igbo in lagos(or something like that) and even appoint an igbo man as part of the past and present administration.

tell me about it

i was never really aware of this until nl, when every other day someone spams us with threads about some igbos achievement along with  ndigbo adulation

in much the same way, the bitching about marginalisation and being held down is repeated everywhere - the other day some ibo chick in my company was blathering about how ibos cannot rise beyond a particular level. when asked about an ibo fellow who did , she mumbled something  and so on and so forth.

Nothing but unfounded arrogance.

I really dont think an Ibo man would be allowed to become president. Not as long as Tinubu is alive and not in my life time

but afam, if u do not support biafra, how can u not think it is a bad idea undecided

what do you think lagos is, a state of mostly yoruba cover by at least 2 yoruba states in all direction apart from the south,

i believe an igbo can be governor of lagos state only if he is loved bu the yoruba indegence, if not even tinubu can not put him there because it would be ungovernable for him undecided form opc to awori boys, to mainland, to isale, eko, obalende, etc sululera

etc  undecided  unless the igbos guy is yorubazied as jason suggested and he is loved by not only lagosains but by yorubas undecided

How is it a bad idea for a region to want there own country.

Lagos is not a state of mostly yoruba. It is a state with about 45% - 50% of yorubas. Igbos are something like 30% - 35%. One cannot ignore the other ethnic minorities like the Hausas, Ibibio, Bini etc no matter how small.

Lagos [b]is [/b]a Yoruba state that inhabits many non-yorubas, like Kwara grin

We dont discriminate, anyone is welcomed into any Yoruba state.

Igbos must be the most politically impotent group of people on the face of the earth if they can be 35% of the population and have nothing to show for it. Even 10 or 20% is enough to make an impact, let alone 35%. . .

And so? Even if there is an influx of people from other parts of Nigeria into Lagos. Does that mean if there is an ethnic riot, igbos or other ethnic groups would not feel it? What about the fight between yorubas and hausas? Yorubas welcome everyone but it should not be taken for granted! Enough said!!!
Re: Are Lagos State Politicians Are Mostly Moslem? by Afam4eva(m): 6:25pm On Jan 09, 2011

Who is this stupid child chatting crap on the net Okay, you were born in Kaduna (an example), Why don't you contest as a councellor or something and see if they would not shout inyamaria and kill you.
When they start their religious riots, why don't you say there since you were born there? Why do you run to the east or west or wherever?
Was nzogwu (with all due respect) not considered as an igbo man even though he has spent most of his life in the North? Boy, I am telling you the reality!!!

afam to be honest with you, you really do not know what you are talking about

the population of igbos in lagos is not more that 5-10% most of the people you consider igbos of lagos are not even registered in alausa because during the emulation most igbos ran back to the east and were not registered as lagosians

i hope u know there are parts of lagos that no single igbos is found living there,,,,eg isele eko, inside ebute metta, inside epe, inside badagry, a very small population can be found in ikordu

igbos are popular in ajegunle, makoko and proparbly idumota

go to ikoyi and victoria island most of the houses are either government or own by yourbas/edo

lekki  is also populated by yorubas and a very very small amount of igbos

Sounds like you lived a long time in Lagos.  So, you must have met lots of Ibos who were born and raised there, speaking Yoruba and mingling well with Lagosians.  I'm not going to pretend there weren't hostility from some, but there were many Ibos who blended well.
I can see someone with an Igbo last name, maybe born of a Yoruba mother with long history in Lagos, becoming governor in 10-20 years from now.  It won't be easy, but it can be done.  It is probably more likely to have a Lagosian born of Tapa (long-term Lagosian) parents get in there first though.

Re: Are Lagos State Politicians Are Mostly Moslem? by Missy85(f): 6:37pm On Jan 09, 2011
Afam, did you make that estimate looking out of your window?

Whats the point of all the made-up statistics I see on nairaland.

You could have simply said Igbos constitute a sizable proportion of Lagos, or that Igbos are the second largest ethnic group. That would have commanded respect.

Why make up statistics on your kitchen table and try to pass them off as credible estimates?

Ibos are not just in Lagos, they are in every nooks and crannies of Yorubaland, doing their businesses without being harassed.

You can't say the same thing about the North, despite having the same rights you have over there as in Yorubaland.

Perhaps, this is why we don't hear of ibos laying claims to Kano or Kaduna

Why? I don't see how this should be something on the priority list. Let the people of Lagos continue to choose who they want as governor. I don't see why we need to pander to any sectarian interests. . .

Yes.  They're called Tapa in Lagos.  Some families have been there for a long time.  Also, a lot of intermarriage between Tapa and ara Eko.
