His point is that his wicked people genocidal plans on Ndiigbo failed to reduce our population.
He is really pained and wish for a chance to have a second go at it. grin

Yes! The elderly died in large numbers embarassed

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.

Chai! These people dealt with us.


God never forget anything or let it go scott free.

Self delusion is allowed.

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

Doctored Census results you mean?

By the way, recent census results only have states of residence and not ethnicity or even state of origin.

IGBOS CAN BE FOUND ALL OVER THE WORLD IN LARGE NUMBERS AND RIGHT ACROSS AFRICA, EVEN ASIA.

When you guys are tired of childish bickering, you will unite into one ethnic group like Igbo clans did, and take your place as the 4th largest ethnic group in Nigeria.

Until then, keep undermining yourselves with your petulant divisions.

The First President of Sierra Leone was an Igbo man known as Christopher Okoro Cole [1921-1990].

Paxienza as at then igbos may have been more populated than yorubas. The difference is about 400,000.but you will agree with me that yorubas have surely outgrown igbos in population due to several reasons.one,you lost over a million people during the war sadly.two which is very important,the birth rate of yorubas is superior to that of the igbos.you can't deny this.up to 40% of yorubas are Muslims and at least half if this are polygamous.almost all igbos arw monogamous even in the rural areas.polygamy is going out of fashion.infact nowadays,most igbos marry late.few years ago,a house of reps member from ebonyi complained bitterly about the low birth rate among the igbos.an average Yoruba family has more numbers than an average Igbo family.you are an intelligent fellow.don't try to dispute this.it is clear as daylight.

Nope.
PVC is calculated based on where a voter registered.
If I'm an Igbo and registered in Bida, it would be counted for Niger state and not Anambra.

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.
U weren't able to give me a concrete reasonable explanation. All these things u just said are speculations, u dont know that no matter what happens the right negotiations between the west and the north and the south south, and Nigeria will continue.

Imagine if they negotiate that since the southeast is no more, all the federal allocations that was supposed to be given to the south east will be shared by the remaining southern states, Lagos state will be given special status like Abuja. While finally they accent to the Niger delta cry of resource control by maybe increasing the 13% to 25%...

And they all agree, won't we be at the loosing end here?

From the moment Biafra is declared automatically those Biafrans wherever they are become foreigners, a lot of jobs, businesses, etc would be lost. Then we will be in Biafra looking at each other, then when the billionaire Lagos business man that had to close shop because the business he is running is reserved for Nigerians then when he returns to Biafra and start looking at ur face. That time una eye go clear

We lost children and elderly.
They were easily replaced after the war.
The Igbo omenana have a way of ensuring that "Ama agaghi echi", ask an Igbo to explain that for you.

I don't know what you are talking about.
An Igbo family is monogamous but always at least 6 members, some more.

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.

Yes I know they have Igbo influences.

Are there even any minority group in Eastern region without Igbo influence?
Even Ugep are Igbos materially. The woman their founder married was an Igbo woman from Abiriba and she named her first son Ibe, using Igbo language.

Ugep people would repeat this story and link to Ndiigbo before the war. But after the war, everything has been doctored and an Ugep would fight you if you dare link him to Igbo.

Such is the situation Ndiigbo found ourselves in post 1970.
