These are subjective view. This country don't have a reliable data on the percentage of ethnicity in Nigeria. Secondly the media is not doing enough to enlighten the public on the number of tribes available in Nigeria.

Even though the OP is an anti-Igbo sentimentalist, he is right on this one.

Forget politics, a tribe that are majority in their own Eastern region and second majority in every region outside their own in Nigeria after the indigenes can only be the True Majority. These people are the Igbos.

They are also well travelled outside Nigeria. If you count 5 Nigerians outside Nigeria in other African countries, 3 are most likely Igbo.
Outside Africa, if you count 5 Africans at least 1 will be an Igbo person.

I've been to some deepest jungles in the lenght and breadth of Nigeria, I don't know anyone who have never met an Igbo person.

Forget politically induced statistics and use your brains and common sense.

Edo 12.5% cheesy

What is the entire population of Edo state?

NB: Edo state has other ethnic groups like ishekiri and Ijaw

Unless you are assuming some igbos in South south with identity crises are Edo which will actually reduce the population of igbo.

Funny people. With that population alone has claimed by the op that will be enough to make a southeastern a president without hoodwinking other tribes. You can't claim to be majority and still cry out marginalization. We should stop all this chest beating it actually make our neighbors grow resentment towards us. Case in view the Jew attitude towards the German in Germany. And bello horrific remarks when asked about the Igbo's in 1940s.

How did you arrive at the figures in your thought?

Igbos are like the 2nd most in numbers in almost all the States in Nigeria

Go to the north and you will realise their lands are empty

Hausas are like the 3rd most populous in almost all states

Edo people are like the 4th most populous in almost all states

In Bayelsa the Ijaws state they don't even dominate it and they are across almost all the coast line of Nigeria bringing them to 5th

Now you should share your own thought
