I'm Ijaw and I only think of Ijaw territories, PH, is still a shared city and would we drive the Igbos in PH off, does it look like Calabar and Uyo can really stay with us in reality, I don't know for Benin but with Igbos gone, Niger Delta may not exist, let's think about ourselves as Ijaw people we have enough for ourselves.
The Niger Delta -thing. Is not one ethnic group affair. Ask the stakeholders in the region to know better. Between, no matter how much you claim to be an Ijaw I still doubt your credibility. But we're going to leave that for another day. I've lived in at least 3 states of the Niger Delta, and associate with different ethnic groups within the Sout-South, and I made bold to assert that the Niger Delta thing, is not a one ethic group affair. Although, the Ijaws have been in the forefront of the whole struggle, but they did so with the consciousness of other ethnic groups. The Niger Delta, is bigger than one ethnic group!

Your comment states the contrary. But then to buttress my point, the love of the Niger Delta people is always (only) relevant to those who knows her worth.

How about Igbos in Niger delta? NIger delta is a slave name for divide and conquer.

Ijaws can opt to be independent country . Igbos are in so-called Niger delta .

This calls for sharing of opinions, I know that Niger Delta is a multiethnic agenda but you can bear me witness that why we Ijaws are closer to the Benin, Isokko and Ogonis, Efik and Ibio are culturally and in many ways close to Igbos, there are more Akwaibomite in Aba than there is in in the whole of Bayelsa.

Ikwaibomites have more regards for Igbos than they have for us, a country is not run on emotions, Philip Efiong was the vice president of Biafra and Later president and Niger Delta will not give Akwa/Cross special status, every bargaining chip Akwa/Cross have Ijaw has it, oil and access to the sea.

Akwa/Cross will get better treatment working with Igbos, people prefer where they are needed and appreciated, Akwa/Cross emotions aside knows they will be more appreciated with Igbos it will be a mutually beneficial relationship, and Igbos don't seem to interfere with states where they don't seem threatened.

Well articulated Bruv! However, these are your assumptions, and not clearly facts. Because going by this theory of yours. The Deltans; Itsekiris and the Edos; Beni, Esans, whom were part of the defunct Western Region, should always align their socio-economic interest with agitators of Oduduwa republic as against the Niger Delta Republic. I can't speak much about the Akwa-Ibomites, but the Cross-riverines I've come in contact with, always share the same view with me regarding the Niger Delta. It's quiet treacherous for me say more than I know.
I've always been proud of the development strides of Akwa-Ibom as a Niger Deltan. I fancy living with them. My IYC brothers in Akwa-Ibom shares similar thoughts. Like, I've stated ealier, The 'Niger Delta' is our collective struggle with due reverence to every ethic group therein. We may have our differences as region. But our spirit of togetherness is what makes us (the Niger Delta) formidable. The stakeholders are conscious of that fact. As for the Akwa-Ibomites, I'll always love and respect them, either together as neighbours or separetely as neighbours.

Don't be too fast, if the Efik and Ibibio have both oil and sea why would they chose Niger Delta instead of choosing the Igbos that will bring traffic and wealth to their region, would Efik need ijaw oil or need Ijaws access to the sea or you think access to the sea alone is enough, lol, they will chose Igbos, Onitsha and Aba alone is enough market, which market is in the Niger delta, don't you see that your sea traffic will mostly be from Igbos, I know with what I had told you Akwa/Cross will prefer Igbos so their seaports gets them real wealth, if we all abandon Igbos, as a country they will just dredge of of their rivers so let's not be too fast in thinking everyone would want Niger Delta, if I'm Akwa/Cross I will also go with Igbos, do you know the level of traffic Igbos will bring to these seaports lol, any economy that exclude Igbos is making a terrible mistake that's why Akwa/Cross always work with them and we can see it, apart from Rivers and PH, which is also shared with the Igbos, which other Niger Delta state can be compared to Akwaibom in terms of development

Maybe with someone like you, I may regain some respect for the Ijaws on Nairaland. The blind hatred for Igbos among your people has really blindsided them from the bigger picture. You are the first Ijaw person i have seen that has critically thought of the Niger Delta viability.

People are just rational in their thoughts about the Igbos.

My point is that Niger Delta may not be realistic as I think most people like Efik, Ibibio, Benin may prefer to stay on their own and from the look of things if Efik and Ibibio fail to be their own country they are most likely to join the Igbos in Biafra, that reduces Niger Delta to an Ijaw and some smaller tribes like Isokko and Ogoni republic that's if Ogonis would not want to be alone, hating on the Igbos is not going to bring Niger Delta, from the look of things Igbos are not our problem

You are not an Ijaw person. Be proud of your igbo skin for once and your penchant for petty divide-and-conquer antics against the unity of all Niger Deltan ethnicities and against our collective resolve to depart Nigeria as United States of Niger Delta can be detected from afar.

Bro, we should know in truth that Igbos are the real bride Niger Delta will fight to be the allie of ndigbo, Igbos don't need the entire Akwa/Cross they need either Akwaibom or Cross River, Igbos only need time from my presumption, they can also be lobbied by the Ogoni, Igbos need at least 10 years to dredge the two of their Rivers that offers them access to the sea then what about Ogonis, Igbos will have four option, in the first 10 years, Ogoni, Akwaibom, Cross River or us and if any of the other three wins Igbos our sea economy will collapse, let's think business and economy, these people won't share in this fantasy when reality downs on us, it is better to be friend and allies with Igbos than any other Niger tribe, prosperity standpoint,

I'm not talking about Biafra, I don't want to be part of Biafra, but I want Igbos as friends and Allies of the Ijaw Nation, I would have loved Niger Delta Republic but if you exclude Igbos from Niger Delta then the map is crazy, Akwa/Cross is closer to the Igbos than they can ever be to the rest of the Niger Delta, that's my concern, If Akwa/Cross is in Niger Delta Republic, Igbo influences in the republic will be massive, they have same agenda with Igbos.

Your weak mental capacity is pathetic, I do not understand your obsession and fixation on igbos...igbo this, igbo that...I am sick of seeing these rubbish.

I like the Igbos as a tribe, I prefer them to the other major tribes, the Igbos say things as they feel it, if they say they are with you, they mean it, if they are going to back out, they let you know, honestly I know Igbo Ijaw rivalry had been long even before Nigeria but then at this point we have to respect each other in sincerity.

We Ijaws need to take some steps in self determination and be wise in choice of allies, Igbos are free thinkers, it is better for Ijaws to work with them, not as Niger Delta but as Ijaw people.

First time I'm seeing a pragmatic and logical Ijaw man. Bravo man!

On topic, the only way Igbos and minorities of Niger Delta can ever live together is by making laws that will give each constituent part the right to control their resources while paying only royalties to the center.

Secondly, by also having three capitals for the country and partitioning the country into four parts, two parts from Igboland and two parts from minorities. With rotational presidency whereby each part will nominate candidates for president of one term of five years only.

Although, the above permutations may not be perfect but anything other than that will lead to chaos and bloodshed. Igbos are not aggressive and oppressive in nature but with our numbers and drive to succeed in all spheres of life, minorities will always feel marginalized and overwhelmed, even when there is no basis for it.

On the other hand, we can equally go for broke and create different countries, but while Igboland can succeed under one country, Niger Delta minorities can't, no matter how you sugar-coat it. We will be looking at a minimum of 4 countries from there for peace to reign otherwise we will be looking at a worse version of South Sudan.

Don't be too fast in your bravo..Not what it seems neither what it looks like.
