The Superiority Of The Western Region In 1969 As Published By NY Times / Tafawa Balewa With Aguiyi Ironsi In The Early 60s (Throwback Photo) / Awolowo Gave Western Region In 7 Years What British Couldn't Give Nigeria In 50 (2) (3) (4)
|Re: Western Region Ministerial List In 60s by Obamaofusa: 1:49pm On May 22|
Most did not want to leave but for the political class.The minorities in the eastern region were almost 45%, and they had the most resources,land etc but the Igbos greatly marginalised them with their renowned nepotism and tribalism.
The minorities were given 9 out of 26 positions.
This is sheer wickedness from the Igbos.
The minorities in the east were very much eager to be cut off from the Igbo but the minorities of the western region were very sad but for their political leaders.
Ibadan was the capital and it is understandable that the bulk of development will be there and the bulk of the money used in developing Yorubaland and even Benin-Delta came from cocoa. How much is the tax being paid now talk less of then when stipends were taken as taxes and just a few usually paid the tax
Most of the Midwesterner enjoyed free medical care, free education etc.
Most of the citizens did not want to go but for the political leadership..
THIS IS FROM THE ARTICLE:
In the weeks preceding the formal launching of the united ï¿½Action Groupï¿½ at Owo from April 28 ï¿½ 30, 1951, Anthony Enahoro had organized a meeting of Benin and Warri leaders of thought in Sapele, ostensibly to discuss Midwestern solidarity. People like Gaius Obaseki, Arthur Prest, Festus Edah (Okotie-Eboh), Okorodudu, S. O. Ighodaro etc. were present. At the meeting, most participants expressed sentiments against the creation of a separate midwestern region. However, two dissenters, Chike Ekwuyasi and E. O. Imafidon who were present, rushed back to Benin to alert Omo-Osagie who then called a rally of his own and initiated counter-measures [Oronsaye, op. cit.; Uwaifo, op. cit

Igbos should go and sit down.
Yorubas have always been far ahead of them even in relationships.Yes,good management of relationships.
Yorubas believe in live and let live.
Nobody is superior to the blackman is our belief.
We can do even more than the whites.

LOL ensure. Take it to twitter. We are waiting for you. You will be handled like the wives that you are. No matter how much you cry and moan we will keep fvcking you. Yorubas have paid your dowry in full. And after all this your IPOB propaganda, you will still continue to be hated all over the world. There is an eternal curse on you. You are covered in odorous suit. The stench grows stronger the more you come after omoluabi. We are your seniors - all your dance moves you learnt from us. And if you ask nicely, we will teach you new moves. You are forever relegated below us. This is your destiny. Embrace it.

If separation is about hatred then Enugu hates Anambra. Delta hates Edo. Ekiti hates Ondo; Katsina hates Kaduna. etc. Sometimes people want to forge their own path. The only people we know that operate EXCLUSIVELY on hatred in Nigeria are the Igbos. Even your ipob-biafra agitation is based on hatred. The only way you will get biafra is when you change you hateful self. But that will never happen because hatred is in your dna. We Yorubas have figured you out. We know your penchant for hate and bile. This is why we have reserve series of canes for your igbotic hide to flog you into submission whenever you start feeling yourself.
All this effort just because you want SS to hate Yorubas as much as they hate you. But let me bust your bubble - it can never work. For decades, Nigerians have interacted with each other and the non-Igbo Nigerians have come to the same conclusion -Igbos are the most tribalistic/hateful tribe on earth. You can never change that. Not in this lifetime. You can never smear the great Yoruba race with a pathetic NL or twitter thread. Yorubas are never desperate. We are strategic to the bone. There is no way an emotional-estrogen driven tribe like Igbo can muster the wisdom/tact needed to navigate the complex Nigerian socio-political terrain. This is why when we see you, we see children, who are still struggling to control their base-emotions. We have offered to teach you how to behave yourself in public. Bring the effeminate-boy Peter Obi (who is your most illustrious son) to Bourdillion let him come and learn basic social/political etiquette from (not even Tinubu) but one of Tinubu's house-boys. He will be housed, clothed and fed. And when in graduates in 20 years, he can go home and spread his knowledge to alaigbo. This is your ONLY hope of smelling biafra. Until then keep parading your porn-star Kanu led ipobic unclothedness/hate/bile all over the world - it is a source of comedy and bemusement for us all.

FisifunKododada:It's funny albeit almost paradoxical that yorrooba pigs (the chief architects and purveyors of hate itself) are the ones crying and wailing when they are getting it back in full measure. I'm a "South South" boy from Anioma and I long saw through the facetious and duplicitous tendencies of your people from my interactions with them long time ago, no be today e start . All these your rants reveals a man with a badly fractured ego, your underlying insecurities been profoundly projected in your volte-face attempts to derail the thread with your inanities. The fact of the matter remains that the Western region under Awolowo was an oppressive one, that explains why all the minorities voted to have a region of their own.. It can't be more concise than that. My dad was a civil servant who was forced to leave his home region in the Midwest and work in Enugu due to the tribalism he had to deal with from your people, his submissions based on the experience he had as an "Midwestern Igbo" was generally re-echoed by other minority groups of the old Midwestern region of that time till date.
You yorroobas are the worst things that could ever happen to fairness, tribalism definitely was birthed in your region... it's a cradle of achievement for your people.
|Re: Western Region Ministerial List In 60s by FisifunKododada: 4:52pm On May 22|
What is the difference between assistance minister and minster of state? If some1 ask you to choose minister job or minister of state job which one will you choose? In addition, the population of minorities in W-region was just 9%. The minorities in E-region were 40% - Yorubas were far more fair to minority tirbes than Igbos. Kiss the truth - give her a full a$$ French kiss.

Another member of "We SS" crew. Yet we all know that you are from SE.I can smell your desperate Ipobic odor from a mile a way. Embrace your SE-Igboticness and stop hiding behind Anioma's skirt. It won't kill you. At the very least, it will give you a sense of authenticity. Rather you stink of imitation and failure because you Igbos are too desperate. Too pathetic. Too clueless. Too archaic. Too childish. Too predictable. You ooze of low self-esteem and landlocked-desperation. You lack the basic compass of decent social interaction. This is why you are hardly welcome anywhere. I know 5 year olds who are more emotionally put together than the average ipobic online 'soldier.' To this day, you still suffer from the estrogen-driven decisions of your forebears. You are landlocked today because your ancestors were still living on trees as bonobo monkeys when mine were exploring the entire west Africa. Always crying/moaning on social media like a monkey b1tch in perpetual heat. Marginalization. Marginalization. Major tribe reduced to 5%. Who declares a war he cannot win? An abject fool or an Igbo. Ojukwu bragged and bragged about space-age advanced weaponry. Lo and behold ogbunigwe (banger inside a tomato tin) was all he had. The chestbeating. The bold-face lies. The weak sauce propaganda. All this because your lazy booty scratching bonobo ancestors bequeathed you an erosion-riden, poverty-stricken landlocked enclave. This is why you claim SS. This is why migrate in droves into SW. This is why you open countless thread of "We SS love Igbos more than Yorubas, because Igbos treat us good and Yoruba treat us bad..." Oh, so embarrassing. So pathetic. So weak. So desperate. Hide your face.

FisifunKododada:Do you suffer from acute cognitive dissonance or mental illness? So I have to prove I'm Anioma to a deranged neophyte like your pathetic self? Like what difference would that even make . Relax, you're rushing your words so fast in order to get your emotions out, so much gibberish that I can't even apply any context of meaning to your guttural language of unintelligible rants.

Thanks for this contribution.
I thought many people may not understand it if I wrote that Awolowo was the 'Leader of Government Business in Western Region' from 1951-1954 and then Premier of Western Region till 1959.
|Re: Western Region Ministerial List In 60s by caleboxylic: 5:59pm On May 22|
Where did you get your 45% from?
We have 8 states from the old eastern region namely Anambra, Ebonyi, Imo, Enugu, Abia, rivers, Akwa Ibom and cross river.
All the south east are igbo and in the present rivers state, Ahoada province, etche, all ikwerre LGA, And Ndoki/Asa were classified as Igbo prior to state creation.
We can deduce from the above that :
A. Rivers state is over 65% igbo based on old eastern REGION.
B. IF the A above is correct, it means the mminoriy(apologies for describing indigenous people as that) are like 30% of the old Eastern region. This can be deduced from the fact that the Igbo still occupies close to Six of the Eight present states.
Please post facts and don't just post because you want to win an argument. There was never a time they were 45%.

The minorities in the East were 1/3 of the population according to all British colonial census.
The Willink commission also re-emphasised that 1/3 proportion of the Eastern minorities.
And as you noted. Groups like Ogba, Ikwerre, Etche, Ekpeye, that currently suffer from identity crisis, were never in doubt about their Igbo identity then, so they were counted as Igbo.
|Re: Western Region Ministerial List In 60s by pazienza(m): 6:14pm On May 22|
This thread was opened because we are tired of defending ourselves from Yoruba calumny.
It's time we are on the offense. Attack is the best form of defense.
I'm currently working on a new thread where the much hyped Yoruba free education scheme will be put on a "Zikmus" test .
Pikin wey say em mama no go sleep no go sleep. Since Yorubas decided to murder sleep on top of Igbo and Biafra matter, we will make sure they get no sleep.
All they hold dear built on years of repetition of ancestral lies, we are going to bring to scrutiny of truth and facts, and tear them to pieces.
We are not smiling

caleboxylic:Like a typical yorruba the guy you quoted is intolerably daft, they are the master spinners of propaganda yet the bastards have the gull to always pokenose into our affairs and accuse of marginalizing the minorities in the old Eastern region. Honestly those people repulse me, ugly apes with the most insufferable proclivities for lies and more lies. No wonder they can't account for anything useful besides deceiving themselves with the useless "sophisticated" chest beating tag... suffersticated people that thrive on concocted nonsensical claims, yet your region is plagued with ritual killings and body parts transaction. Barbaric nearthandals!

fhranchez:The brothers mind is troubled, I could hardly decipher anything meaningful from his listless rants, I challenged the dunce to stick to the topic of the thread, with some added background of sprinkled historical facts as to why the Midwest voted to be separated from the clutches of Awolowo and his people, just for context... then came the projection of attitudinal madness from the mentally ill sycophant. He first questioned my Anioma identity calling me an Igbo (like it makes any difference, stupidity and ignorance is really a disease). My guy then went on a brain aneurysm-like fussilade of nonsensical rants- more like the most idiotic lectures as to why I'm a "5%" and why Ojukwu started a war blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah, like nyggah WTF are you on? I dey talk A my guy dey talk B, just pointless and emotional-laden drives upandan, something is seriously wrong with the mental, emotional and psychological aptitude of these people honestly

You can do nada. Your propaganda at best will only serve one purpose: masturbatory fluid for jobless ipob online 'soldiers.' Propaganda is weak. Truth reigns supreme. What is the legacy of Zik? I.B.O (I before Others) tribalism and 'one' Nigeria. What is the legacy of Ojukwu? 3 million dead Igbos. What is the legacy of Awolowo? Free education that elevated the human capacity of SW Nigeria to what it is today.
Now all these men have run their race and passed on. The question is what is YOUR legacy? What will you be remembered for? You will be nothing but an abjectly ineffective anti-Yoruba online Ipob 'soldier.' This is your destiny. This is why your chi brought you upon this earth. And you MUST fulfilled your destiny. I encourage it. I support you. Make sure you mention me when you post your weak-sauce ipobic propaganda, so I can support your ministry.

This was at the time the Yoruba & Hausa had advanced greatly but we were still very much into cannibalism and today, it is still a thing in a town in Abia - I won't mention the name. We are crude, emotional, not totally developed and we should be thankful the British grouped us with people with superior history and civilization because they opened our eyes and without going to their lands, every house in Anambra wouldn't have a millionaire each.[/quote]
