The East started differentiating themselves from their Fulani master in 2015 because buhari won't tolerate their excesses. Igbos were loyal to the north from 1960-2009.

Azikiwe had this grand vision of a Nigeria that is dominated and controlled by the Igbos.

When Awolowo proposed the secession clause, Zik fought against it with all his might. Even the Fulani leader, Ahmodu Bello was in support of the clause. Zik went to Bello’s house late in the night to beg him not to support the secession clause. If Zik hadn’t opposed Awo’s proposal, Nigeria would have been history since. The western and eastern region would have seceded peacefully after the fraudulent 1964 general election and the bloody civil war wouldn’t have happened.

Igbos have been in partnership with the north since 60’s

Strategic partnership...

Unlike Yoruba and north...
Where a Yoruba man must convert to Islam .. before being accepted..
Is like a master slave relationship that’s based on consideration

Not blabbing... ask osibanjo.. even with his daily pr online.

Stupid post. Let's even conced that Zik did all that. In 1967 when Zik was shoved aside by a more reasonable Igbo to allow East, West and North separate, how did your beloved Awo respond?

That's how they've been programmed. They have refused to move on since the last civl war. They hate even themselves. Hate is what spin their wheels. Little wonder buhari termed them inconsequential 5% wailer.

Is Osinbajo now Islamic?
Is author Eze now Islamic?
Is Kalu now Islamic?

what has ur strategic relationship with the Hausa done for the igboland? What was the benefit or ojukwu campaigning for the north? What have the Igbo gained from the strategic partnership with Hausa since 1960?

Nobody takes any ibo man or woman seriously these days.....they have been demystified.
And Alas most Nigerians have now seen through their blackmail and intimidations of Biafra agitation as nothing but pure jealousy of the Yoruba race ....all attempts to rewrite history by them have failed .....all the twists to make everyone else the ibomans enemy except himself have been resisted.....I know it's painful that 16 years of slavery to PDP could only fetch you the Senate president and Yorubas produced a vice president as well as several super ministers while you have been relegated to 5%..... Pathetic

That Zik is a fool
Good for nothing grammarian
I say it without any apology he is one of the correct problem of Nigeria. He is the brain behind this suffering we are suffering today. Education is not about speaking big grammars but sitting down and applying critical thinking and logical reasoning to real life issues.
