I have a perfect plan that will grant us access to the sea, and develop a viable port, but it involves an igbo president to make it happen.

We need Nigeria for a lot

I find this remark very belittling and insulting.

Actually, we are throwing away our population in Nigeria, IPOB want to concentrate them on Igbo land.

With that population, no excuse going anywhere else.

People should be coming to us.

We can have several cities and market.
Seriously I used to have the beleief until I settled down to do an Indept research of everything. I repeat everything.

The only thing Biafra will give us is that we will become Biafran passport holders nothing more.

After Biafra comes I assure u chaos won't take time before it errupts, because our people would have found out that they have been lied to the whole time, that its not what they pictured.

I am telling u this take it from me, after Biafra comes there would be a mass expropriation of lands and it would then be redistributed.

This would lead to a lot of problems and Nigeria will make sure we are trapped inside Biafra as we face our problems since we said we wanted to leave.

The Biafran economy will be heavily dependent on the Nigerian economy, so much that at a particular time the Naira will become the currency in circulation while the Biafran currency is second.

I am telling u a full blown analysis.


Theres a particular information I dont want to relay here since its a public forum. But as igbo to Igbo I beg u quit the pursuit

Go and read things fall apart and when the center can no longer hold.

Yoruba that we will like to datch the North, will most likely exit to Oduduwa.

The middle belt will start calling for independence from the North or fight war of independence with them.

The pillar holding Nigeria is Igbo, once that is gone, nothing is left.

Oil and gas money gone.

Re: The 1952 Nigeria Ethnicity Census Result by hammerP: 10:27pm On May 22
Coldie do u know that if Yoruba left Nigeria today, that Igbos will agree to stay with the North in One Nigeria?

Before the Lagos Protectorate was added to Nigeria, Igbos practically begged the North to stay in the newly amalgamated Nigeria. (southern and northern protectorate)

I stand to be corrected on the above by historians here.


Wat am saying is that Igbo are not scared of anybody in Nigeria.


Even the influx of Northerners to the South, if u notice the Igbos are calm about it whilst the SS and SW ARE FREAKING OUT.

Igbos go to the North to live and trade with Fulani, even buy house, land and property. Some even end up marrying them there.

Yoruba have fear and will not be able to stay without Igbos.

This is y Igbo are the pillars of this nation Nigeria.

Don't disgrace your Afonja ancestor.

1952 Census was not annulled. The annulled census was the 1962 Census.
The 1952 Census is recognized as the last true Census in Nigeria.
Little wonder it retains Igbo superiority in numbers as seen in 1931 and 1921 census figures.

This is alledged to be the last fairly credible Census ever carried out in Nigeria, as the subsequent ones were marred with irregularities.
Though many still believe the British inflated the Northern figures in 1952, but there was never any contest over who was the most populous in Southern Nigeria. cool

You can compare the 1952 figures with the 1931 one:

That 2 to 3 million Biafra war is not an excuse.


We lost far more to the transatlantic slave trade.

The point is Igbo had already established a massive population capable of multiplying quickly.

And one of our women after the Biafra war had at least 9 children.

It is recently that we cut it down to 4 or 5.


Even in your south west, if u check every state, Igbo are the second largest group.

We lost millions in slave trade to Americas and recovered well.
We are Igbos. Our society is built to quickly regenerate lost population, we have Omenala in place to ensure that.
Moreover, not many Biafran adults died.
Biafran soldiers killed more Nigerian soldiers.
People that died in Biafra in millions were mainly children who died of starvation following the Nigerian starvation policy.

They were quickly replaced by their parents after the war.
If anything, Igbo population post civil war experienced a population boom! cheesy

Should Awolowo have gone to Manufacture igbos into his government?

Ijesha and some Yoruba clans were not also on Awolowo's ministerial list despite the fact that every Edo clan was represented.

Below is the map of African, can you tell me how Igbos got to Guinea? Considering Guinea is very far.

Are the Igbos in Equi.Guinea native?
Equatorial guinea was one of the country that supported Biafra during civil war
During that period igbos moved in mass
Same with Gabon

The babies, children and elderly mainly.

The adults recovered once the war ended and obviously made sure they replaced that which was stolen.

So many Igbo families had minimum of 9 children from 1 woman only.

It will certainly be Igbos.

If wishes were horses, Igbos will ride. Most tribes in the south lost their people to the slave trade. You have Yoruba all over the Caribbean, Brazil & Sierra Leone till tomorrow.


But as regards the civil war loss, it's so huge, Igbos can't recover from it hence recording the least population in the 2004 census.

It's similar to the Russians whose population has been stagnant over the years after losing 25million during WWII.

Feel like crying now.
Remember a story my mum told me of an old woman that refused to leave her home when Nigerian soldiers entered Nkpor and Ogidi fled.
Every member of the family begged "Nne" to come along, she refused saying she doesn't want to be liability to anyone.
They came back after the war and saw her bones in her bombed house.

Self delusion is allowed.

However, the reality is that the south east is least populated based on the most recent census.
