These people won’t leave their cave and read to understand what is going on or what exists outside their immediate environment.

All they hear and know is Yoruba, Yoruba, Yoruba. What is this Yoruba, and what does Yoruba entails?
Is it a single entity?

As it stands on that list, all entities were almost represented and some Yoruba parts/dialects like Ijesha, Akoko et al were not represented, what do you want them to say?

The Midwest comprises majorly of Itsekiri, Edo, Esan, Ishoko/Urhobo and they are represented.
Ministers were selected provincially in a way that could be likened to be the Federal character today.

So you are saying that if the Ijesha and Akoko people don't get a ministerial position first, Edo and Delta tribes don't deserve to get a position? grin

No, it’s not new to most of us in the west

But we don't just cry over spilt milk like the igbos

They did what they felt would benefit them the most when they took the decision

What has been done cannot be reversed.

The so called Minorities are now ruling themselves in the South/South region and we wish them all the best of luck.

I heard that the yorubas took all the revenue generated by all the region and developed just Yoruba speaking parts of the region, totally marginalising Edo, Itshekiri, Igbo, Ishan, Isoko, and Ijaw speaking areas?

How true is this?

Main reason Mid-west asked for referendum to be separated from West region, they also used their common wealth in developing western states most expecially Ibadan in 60s, During this period newspaper articles written by AG loyalists appeared in which various ethnic groups of the proposed Midwest were warned of “Benin domination.” In the smear campaign, designed to derail Midwest unity, rumors were spread about how certain posts were going to be dominated by “Benin.”

Really, ever wondered why people in Delta and Benin are generally Educated with high literacy rate.

Awolowo planted the seed because of his free Education was through out the west despite being in opposition.

They accused him of spending in ibadan as if Awolowo himself is from ibadan and as if Edo didn't spend in Benin when they got their Midwestern region.

Or is Okowa not spending money gotten from other parts of Delta in Asaba today?

Is Nigerian government not spending in Abuja today?

The awolowo free education made people from the old mid West highly literate? Wonder why your states are not doing free education today if free education makes dull people suddenly bright. Delta and Benin people had always been intelligent, pre independence till today. It's nature, not because of Awolowo.

It's criminal not to develop Sapele, Ughelli, Warri and Asaba despite the numerous natural and human resources there. Awolowo wasn't from Ibadan but ibadan speaks his language, he doesn't understand not trust the other languages, that's why he refused to give them any meaningful position, or develop their places.

To him, it's either they accept their second class status or jump into the lagoon.

Okpara called his political philosophy “pragmatic socialism” and indeed through an ingenious, well-choreographed, economic blueprint raised the bar of infrastructural development across the defunct Eastern Region which comprised Abia, Akwa Ibom, Anambra, Bayelsa, Cross River, Ebonyi, Enugu, Imo and Rivers States.
Dr. Okpara was a prudent manager of men and materials that made merit the hallmark of his leadership recruitment model. That was why he could accept Chief Okwulehie’s recommendation of the Obubra, Cross River State-born Dr. Samuel Imoke (1912-2015) for nomination as minister of education; it was for same reason that he had the presence of mind to bring late Chief Ogbuagu on board to head Eastern Nigeria Development Corporation (ENDC)…a regime of square pegs in square holes, that is! Dr. Okpara was, through the ENDC, establishing a Pepsi Cola Plant in Onitsha, a shoe industry and a textile mill were springing up in Owerri and Aba, Obodu cattle ranch in Cross River, Cement Factory in Cross River and Nkalagu, Port-Harcourt was not left out. It was within same dispensation that an industrial estate was conceived and delivered in Trans Amadi area while the Alfa Plant for plywood production berthed on Eastern Region’s shores. Mecheiin factory in Port Harcourt History also has it that it was the provision of abundant public utilities by Dr. Okpara’s administration that attracted both Michelin Tyre and Glass factory to the soil of Eastern Region. Those of us who were born in the 1970s met standard, well-paved roads, pipe-borne water flowing from taps in individual rural homes and uninterrupted power supply. What is more, Presidential Hotels Enugu and Port-Harcourt still stand tall today as some of the signature hospitality statements made during the era under review.

Dr. Okpara’s legacy of aggressive industrialization and even development can further be seen in his establishment of Adapalm Ohaji in present-day Imo State and several farm settlements spread across the defunct region. Likewise, Modern Ceramics Industry and Golden Guinea Breweries Umuahia are also eloquent testaments of Dr. Okpara’s unmatched industrial revolution. And to think that his administration accomplished all these with proceeds from palm produce, one cannot but appreciate the genius in this man who served his people, chose not to serve self and family to the point of being unable, by election, to build a hut for himself and family in his ancestral home of Ohuhu, Umuahis in today’s Abia State.

The Port Harcourt Hotel Presidential is even more grand than that of Enugu.

Nothing for Benin, nothing for Warri, nada for Ughelli, Sapele was only fit for lizards, Asaba was abandoned because they spoke Igbo.
