Yes, the combined output of Abia and Imo states is less than 30,000 barrels per day while Ondo is 60,000 and Lagos has been confirmed to have a capacity of 40,000bpd. The implication is that while Yoruba land produced a combined output of 100,000 bpd, Igbo land is producing less than 30000bpd

Every West African tribe were taken as slaves
But only the Yoruba are still able to preserve their culture so well that they speak their language in their new territory


Is it Yoruba's fault that you lost your culture on the way to the Americas?


theFilmtricsay

Every Africa was not taken. Some fought against the white man. Afonja did not, why . No balls. Even in the Americans Afonja still remain a slave to other Africans. Do you know Haiti fought and defected the white man and declare independence.

Do you know why they were able to do it. There was no Afonja there. The people with no balls. Who brag because they have the north backing. It is the north that is why Afonja is backing. Right now they are biting the finger that feeds them.

If I lie ask tinubu.

This is their pain, yorubas are proud to exhibit their culture anywhere they are which speaks of healthy self image reason they don't have issues with their host unlike others whose inferiority complex is always a basis for useless agitations.

Benin was never influential

Are you student of history?
Benin was very influential...their influence extended to lagos...infact Lagos was benin slave route to the outside world.

Lagos was a yoruba land they didnt take serious. Yorubas saw lagos as a trade land...They didnt establish administrative center or Obahood there.

The same way Yorubas are not taking Yewa in Ogun state seriosly. Fulanis are using yewa to import goods now. But it doesnt mean Yewa is fulani land...

Benin was an iconic African empire recognized by UNESCO

Before the almagamation of Nigeria, you can ask elders in your house if they are still alive...to know about oyo and benin empire...

Oyo empire was a war conclave...

Land of slaves was born as a result of trust in Abuja power... All head of military police DSS are fulanis. Nigeria is a land of the slave right now...

everyone invloved in nigeria is a slave of fulani

I will only agree with you on the part that Nigeria is a land of slaves right now. But I blame it on you the Yoruba people you caused it.

In addition, yoruba is the most dominant langauge in nigeria
Yoruba is the sweetest, lovely, pleasant language in Nigeria
Even professors in UI speak Yoruba like no tomorrow unless in lecture room or official

Not really. I am from a town in the Akoko region and I can tell you that there's no Yoruba word in our dialect.

Which part of Akoko are you from?

There are so many dialects in the Akoko region of Ondo state, the majority are eastern Yoruba dialects.

Most people always mixed up with being Yoruba to speaking Oyo dialects. Oyo dialects is a northern Yoruba language and it's was adopted as a standard Yoruba dialect.

I know this because my father is from Ikare and my mother from Ilorin.
The Ikare dialect which is the largest dialect in Akoko Ondo overlaps with the standard Yoruba with more than 80%, I know this because I speak both languages.

The only influence in much of Akoko apart from the OYO we're the Nupes, Owo and Ibadan. Though, there are groups that speak an Edoid language in Akoko Ondo, but they now have been Yorubanized.

Finally, the Standard Yoruba dialect is being spoken as a second language or first language by all Akoko Ondos.

I don't understand why it's being called odua anthem. Why can't they just call it Ondo anthem? At least there are 100 different dialects in Ondo state if I'm not exaggerating and only few towns speak Yoruba expressly, though that's not to say the other towns don't speak Yoruba too generally.

Because the standard Yoruba is being spoken by the overwhelming majority of the people in the state.

Shut up. You're a hypocrite. Talking about others hating on you as if you show those people love. You insult Yorubas at will but can't stand such insults. You guys come on here to call Yorubas all sort of derogatory names - Afonja, conehead, hydraulic soup eater etc. Practice what you preach.

Benin was never an empire my Benin slave

Let me give you example of Oyo empire

Oyo state today has the largest landmass and highest number of indigenes in southern nigeria

The Yoruba we speak today is Oyo Yoruba

The word Yoruba was coined from Oyo which means Oyo is king(oyo roba)

There are ethnic Oyo in osun state, Oyo state, Ogun state

Ikoyi in Lagos state today is an Oyo chief who migrated from old Oyo ile

Oyo subgroup is the highest among Yorubas today

So thats Oyo empire

My Benin slave is in sifia pains


Yorubas always fabricating stories to help themselves. Oduduwa fell from heaven. Oyo was an empire. Now it is Yoruba is from Oyo roba. My friend go and study.
