Wow, another bull's eye!!
Nigeria used quota system and man-know-man to push the competent Igbos out which destroyed its economy, but thank God our people have succeeded in taking their expertise abroad, to sane climes where merit and skills are appreciated.

Igbo Amaka cool cool

Is anybody expecting to hear this news from another tribe that is not Igbo? Never, can anything good come out of the people that mine skull and those people who are terrorists.

We ndigbo are just blessed. The yorubas are seeing the waves IPOB is making world wide and with IPOB the Igbos have used it as a bargaining chip in order to get what they want from this government. Pronto, they started their call for secession, as they are always good in copying whatever thing they see from Igbo. But unfortunately they don't have the unique characters of endurance, resillence, candor, and UNITY amongst them to acheived anything as a people.

She's an American, she hasn't been a Nigerian in 49 years make una chill. Big ups to her it's not easy to get to such position as a person of color in the US. So, being Nigerian, or being Ibo has nothing to do with her personal struggles to achieve this position in her life.

Lol, you guys always amaze me with your rubbish.

The Yoruba have the likes of Modupeola Abiola who is the head of Global Innovation for International Airline Group (The Owners of British Airways) but you won't see them shouting or boasting about those simple things.

Just celebrate your people in peace and stop bringing the Yoruba into your rubbsih!

My only problem now is that the children of the fallen angel whose only profession is skull mining will descend on any available sniper tonight.
I hereby call on to whom it may concern to mop up all snipers in the market and thorough surveillance should be mounted on Lagos lagoon to prevent mass suicide.
