|Yourbas And Igbos Alleged Hatred by dollar124(m): 11:45am On May 22|
Growing up in the east i developed the mindset that Igbos hate yourba and Yorubas hate igbos even when I was yet to have any personal dealings with any yourba person.
Then back in those days, some Yoruba boys came to my hood for a tiling job, this guys were very nice to us we were nice to them as well. We became friends to the extent that even after their job was done, they had to spend an extra one week with us. I was now like maybe they are different breed of yourba people.
When I got admission in UNN, everything changed. We had few yourba ppl in my department, but the love we have for them was enormous to the point that one was voted as the departmental president - this is an Igbo dominated school. After seeing all the love most of us Igbo had for this Yoruba students, I started thinking maybe is just yourba people that hate igbos.
Fast forward to my service year, Infact when I was posted to Yoruba land I was scared, I was jus asking myself how can I survive amidst this people that will hate me because am Igbo? But when I got there it was a different story, my landlord refused to collect rent from me because according to him when he served in the East many years ago they were very nice to him.
This is my 4th year in yourba land, am yet to see anyone that hate me nor anyone I hate. Please if you have problem with chukwudi or with kehinde, let your anger be directed to them alone. Don't condemn a whole tribe that ranges in millions all because of the microscopic few that wronged you and before you say Igbos hate yourbas or Yourbas hate igbos, ask yourself how many of them do you hate personally?

Nobody hates no one. The problem only starts when one thinks they are better than the others.
|Re: Yourbas And Igbos Alleged Hatred by BigTableShaker(f): 11:54am On May 22|
Your first sentence got me tho
Yoruba love Igbo, Yoruba love every other tribes of the world too.
Buh when some minority fucking flatheaded basterrd thinks they can sass Yoruba and go free then we turn it on.
E. g Kanu calling "Yoruba demented fools"
You want us to clap for him?!
The hatred is real bro but the goodnews is it has directions.
Do not be caught on its highway.

imhotep:Our maid got burned by hot oil, we send her to his chemist because it's late in the night, so I followed her and sit by the door with my phone. I heard him saying give her fake medication" to his employees. Next morning I reported him, and they closed the chemist. his dad come to beg and fire him, before they open the shop. I guess he is now into Cult wicked soul

BigTableShaker:Before kanu do you yorubas love IGBOS,or did yorubas hatred for Igbos start in 2014.
Even your oba threatened to throw Igbos in lagoon if they do not vote for his apc candidate.which all yorubas cheered and applauded him.

Say the truth since 1950, do Igbos love Yorubas?

Seerade029:Say the truth,didn't your yoruba parents taught you to hate Igbos.
|Re: Yourbas And Igbos Alleged Hatred by Seerade029: 12:43pm On May 22|
They didn't taught me, If I were taught to hate Igbos.
I think the Igbo neighbor living in my area should be dead by now
Say the truth, do Igbos love Yorubas since 1950?

A nice piece by OP. Thanks so much for this wonderful write up!
Personally, I'm a very detribalised Nigerian and a proud Igbo man. I have friends from all tribes in Nigeria and it dates back to my secondary school years. I love every Nigerian irrespective of tribe and religion.
During my M.Sc. programme in UI, I was among the popular(if not the most popular) PG students of the Department. I made friends from all tribes that I met over there and we still maintain good contacts. In fact, my roommate throughout the third semester of the programme was a Yoruba Muslim and an Alfa at that(while I'm an Igbo & Christian) yet, we saw each other as brothers and we are still maintaining good contacts. We learned a lot from each other because we ceased the opportunity to always share constructive opinions on religious, political and multicultural issues of Nigeria. We cooked and ate from the same pot, enjoying Igbo and Yoruba delicacies prepared by myself and him respectively. Honestly, he remains a very good friend and brother to reckon on. So, let us stop the media hate and focus on the best ways to move Nigeria forward via love, peace, equity, justice and truthfulness!
Together we can fight our divide and rule politicians because they have always enjoyed great political capital from instigation of ethnoreligious sentiments amongst the masses.Hence, they are our greatest problem.

The Op is an ignoramus. He doesn't know this pple. The yorobaz will pretend to love u if you are a failure, try to excel among them, then you will know that they are demons. if it's in a company they will kill you with JUJU, in politics they come after u with propaganda and lies, do better even in church ministry, they will kill calling and anointing with envy and jealousy.
Destroy the zoo and let all man go and create a nation habitable for themselves.

The point is this , if two beautiful girls live in a street, you must not put one before the other else chaos, an average African like you to puff there ego, so Yoruba and Igbo are not different.
When they go abroad, they defend, fend , and relate well.
Every Saturday they intermarry, every Monday they do business together, every Friday they party.
They both love life and education and adventure
Give this two crazy but beautiful tribes regionalism, watch them grow faster .
Truthful enough the destiny if the black race depends on them.

One day the igbos and yorubas will team up together to fight the ragging hades..
