Indeed. The thread would have been ten pages of insecure chest-beating by now. The secure, confident and accomplished Yorubas can never be found doing that though. We are secure in our identity as one of the most distinguished ethnic group and culture in Africa. Success and brilliance is in our DNA.

Such a great people don't have anything to prove to themselves or to others so cannot be found Chest beating or bragging like insecure Igbos. Good luck to these guys but folks should bear in mind they are serving their Country and not Nigeria.

Joe Biden will never step foot in that white house, Donald Trump will continue to be the president of America


All he has to do is implement the insurrection act and he'll become the president and will be sworn in by March.
