Azikwe has ancestors from Benin, Bianca family can traced their origin to Benin, so the story isn't far fetched. Igbos should study themselves why other tribes never want to associate with them.

Lol, I wonder why some people keep worrying themselves with their identity crises.
Firstly, Ikwerres have nothing to offer we Igbos, I MEAN NOTHING!!

If it's access to the sea, then it may interest you to note that Obuaku and the surrounding parts of Southern Abia state is nearer to the Atlantic ocean than even P.H or the Ikwerre communities, and what's more, there is a direct all year round navigable river that flows from Obuaku straight into the Atlantic!

If it's oil, then it may interest you to note that the oil and gas deposits in the Asa/Ndoki areas of Rivers and Abia state (I'm not even including oil bearing areas of Imo state) is far bigger than whatever is found in Ikwerre land. The misrepresentation of facts is largely due to ignorance or plain mischief, because many assume that other Igbo speaking communities in Rivers State are under Ikwerre, but the truth is that these people such as Asa, Ndoni, Etche among other Igboid areas have nothing in common with Ikwerre. These Igbo speaking communities are proud of their Igbo heritage and they always show it.

Igbo is a globally recognized ethnic group that is among the most respected and highest achievers, but who knows about Ikwerre outside Rivers State? Does the average Northerner or Westerner know about them talk more of foreigners?!

Ask yourself why Amaechi is suddenly claiming to be Igbo? He knows that he belongs to a minute minority group that would never be recognized as a force to reckon with. He now decided to be championing Igbo. Igbos are demanding for Igbo presidency and Nigerians are keying into it already, so the question is, why are the Ikwerre not demanding for Ikwerre presidency since they claim to be an ethnic group that can compare with Igbos?

I'm really pitying these confused people called Ikwerre, because they're busy digging their own grave. They are surrounded by enemies that wouldn't hesitate to bring them to their knees at the slightest opportunity. They have forgotten the humiliation they suffered in the hands of Ijaw prior to the creation of Bayelsa.

What he is trying to say is that Igbos took an Ikwerre man called Uche Okwukwu from Bini, forced him to change his name to Igbo, made him to forget his bini language, forced him to speak Igbo then made him Ohanaeze Secretary General.

We Igbos don't easily forget any wrong done to us. Ikwerres have continued to insult Igbos at every slightest opportunity, but they forget that we now live in an information age when awareness is open to all. They have continued to build an animosity against we Igbos but they can be rest assured that by the time it is reciprocated in full measure, they won't be able to withstand it.

They are too insignificant for Igbos to lose sleep over but I think it is time we begin to cut them off in all Igbo affairs because they can't eat their cake and still have it.

If they're smart, they would have played it wisely. When the Itshekiri of Delta State faced annihilation under the Ijaws, they were forced to align with the Yorubas to stand any chance against the Ijaws. I wonder who the Ikwerres will go to when they face similar threat.

Nigeria has over 250 ethnic groups with three prominent ones, does Amaechi or any Ikwerre have any hope of becoming Nigeria's president on their own?

Igbos don't need Ikwerre for anything but they need us in so many areas. This animosity they are brewing will definitely hurt them someday.

IKWERRE IS NOT IGBO!! AMAECHI IS NOT IGBO!!!

Ikwere don't need you people. Iboes are slaves in this country and in politics, nobody wants you for anything. Your five unproductive states are unattractive for habitation and they are worthless to the national economy. Peter Odili would have been the vice president to Yar Adua if he had clarified adequately that he was not linked to Iboes. Rivers people have now seen that you carry badluck. They don't want anything to do with you people.

Sorry, you're ignorant. You don't have any say on how Biafra will be composed since you're neither Igbo from SE or Igbo from SS. The most prominent Igbos from the SS like Ngozi Okonjo Iweala, Pat Utomi, Elumelu etc. all wear their Igbo identity like a batch of honour. Many politicians in Nigeria today, can't help denouncing Biafra for obvious reasons, but wait till Biafra restoration becomes obvious and see how they will all fall over themselves to be identified with Biafra. At that point, you can then go and tell those Igbos that they are not Igbos or Biafrans and see if you will survive the outcome.

Secondly if you are reasonable enough you wouldn't have said we are imposing ourselves on our own flesh and blood because, that is what the people you and your likes are trying to separate from us are to we the Igbos.

Lastly the people you're referring as minorities are not. Nigger-area decided to name them minority in order to divide and rule them successfully courtesy of Britain.

Lol, this is ignorance in full high definition display.

Fact 1. Yes, Ikwerres need us for them to be recognized and that is why Amaechi is suddenly attaching himself to us. He knows his ambition to become president is dead once he identifies as Ikwerre ethnic nationality grin grin

Fact 2. My state Imo is far more habitable than your areas that are full of swamps, highly polluted and where cultism is the order of the day. Many of your people run to Owerri, I even know many Rivers indigenes that kept their families here because they don't feel safe in Rivers.

Fact 3. You don't understand the politics Obasanjo played in 2007. Peter Odili, Donald Duke and other governors from SS were campaigning to be president but Obasanjo was seeking for a less ambitious and weak person who will deputize Yaradua and not rock the boat. Rivers State or even the region had no say in who emerged as president and vice president, Obasanjo was the person that totally influenced it.

Fact 4. Igbos may have lost the sorth of political influence they welded prior to the civil war but that doesn't mean we can ever be reduced to your level. At least, we Igbos can challenge the system and aspire to rule Nigeria, but do you as a minute minority have any hope of ever ruling Nigeria grin grin

Lol, you guys are so inconsequential and irrelevant that they lump you all together and term you minorities grin grin

Don't be silly. Ikwerre is not flesh and blood to any Igbo man. Ikwerre man will nuke Igbo land and people if he has the access code. Look at the con man from Bini Ikwerre called Rotimi Amaechi, under his watch in Transport ministry, Igboland was totally excluded from the rail project and Enugu airport has been closed down indefinitely with nothing to show for it.
