Olu Okeowo: Area Boys, Fake Pastors Are Products Of South West Nigeria (Video) / Reno Omokri Replies Aisha Yesufu: 'You Are A Frustrated Sidekick' / Reno Omokri Replies Big Backside Woman Who Invited Him For Lunch (2) (3) (4)

I do not really see any sense in this kind of argument as no one as the data. But to think or assume that because the Ibo dominated the civil service in the 60s means they are the most educated is wrong. Ibos and hausas control the federal government in the 60s through Tafawa Balewa and Nnamdi Azikwe. They both shared Nigeria based on two things - Tafawa was smarter than the Igbo assumed him to be, he took almost all the federal projects to the north. Azikwe put his people in the civil service not because there were no other educated Nigerians but it is just simply tribalism and nothing else, however all the founding fathers were all guilty of this. There were yoruba professors and even some of the foremost professors in many fields in Nigeria are yorubas so there is no way he could have said there was no professor of yoruba origin to head Unilag or U.I.
Just to ask you a question the north dominated or head almost head almost all civil service posts today, does that mean they are the most educated? The yoruba leads in the private sector today and from your logic we can assume they are the most educated as well Everybody is just trying to massage their ego.
The truth is the Ibo or let me say Ibo leaders underestimated the north and thought they were not intelligent because of their level of western education at that time forgetting that they had the most advacned form of governance before the british came and were already literate before then as well - this is due to their early interaction with the Arabs. Ahmad Bello and Tafawa Bale were not educated up to master level I doubt they both even had B.Sc but they outsmarted a PhD holder (Azkiwe). Azikwe quickly realized they were not dumb as he thought and next thing some people thought was to eliminate them. Azikwe mission was to make Ibo control both the civil service and the direction of the government reason for his alliance with the north thinking they were f**l because of their level of education. He was proved wrong and only achieved one which is the civil service and they realized the only way to control the government is by taking the two topmost northerners out and they did.

You're not wise after all.
Do you bother to check her parent's tribes?
A typical yor.uba person, always trying to cover the truth with their lie(s).
That girl has both Igbo and Yoruba blood.
Stop disgracing yourself.
|Re: Reno Omokri Replies Olu Okeowo: Is The SouthWest Just Area Boys & Fake Pastors? by BabaIbo: 4:56pm On May 11|
You are a big and unrepentant liar.
You're being mischievous here.
Education- Totally wrong(Igbos has the highest number of professors and best results in national exams)
IT- Maybe but still debatable(The first known blogger in Nigeria is an Igbo lady)
Creative industry- Are you OK?
Manufacturing- I can see you are drunk, how industries do Yoruba people have compared to others?
Importation and sales of vehicles....e.g elizade. You surely needs a medication for saying this. The owner of coscharis and other companies that sell vehicles are from your village, right?
Innoson, Anamco etc are from Ogbomosho abi?
Entertainment- Stop smoking weed please, In acting Igbos dominate. In music it's debatable, I guess P-Square brothers, Ill Bliss, Flavour, Burna Boy(we fit dash una this one) , Tekno, Black Bones etc are from your village. Or you think we are talking about Naira Marley and Ayiiiii or chupariparichupako here, gbenu soun joor.
Oil and gas- Are you mad ni? Mention one Yoruba oil tycoon and I will mention 2 Igbo Oil tycoons for each Yoruba you mention.
Aviation- Get out joor, Air Peace and other carriers own by Igbos are bigger than any one you can think of.
Furniture and wood craft- Do you mean carpentry or furniture? In fact, you guys are lacking in any of it.
Everything you typed there are trash, I have corrected it appropriately.
In addition, Igbos dominate in Sport, Banking, Business/Entrepreneur, Pharmaceuticals and other aspect you can think of.
In diaspora, Nigerians with notable positions and recognition are mostly Igbo people.
Don't dare mentioning that little girl because she has an Igbo root.
I was born and brought up in yorubaland, even in their best schools, I mean schools where commissioner of education visits on waec/neco day, schools that are renowned for their excellent performance year in year out runs exist there on a large basis.
I know this because I was in the system.
I served in the north, it exists there but I don't want to bring north into the discussion because it doesn't involve them.
I hate it when people paint others black just to look good.
Listen a dull student is a dull student even if you provide them with runs thru will still show that dullness but it takes only a good/smart mind to utilize the runs perfectly to come top.

The highlighted are they oil product or oyel product cos I never heard of them or are they what is use to lubricate igbo hate n foolishness across the globe ?
In Anambra n Imo what exactly is the production quota of 2 state at the national level... Lol. You think you are arguing with a novice you will brandish your foolishness at without questioning your stupidity.
It is normal for igbos to own 1 piece of land and make senseless noise like you created the world every Nigerian knows you for that foolishness now but what we need is 4 you to tell us companiea owned by Igbo in Lagos/Ogun n I will not list 50-100 companies doing the same thing ownwd exclusively by Yoruba.
For every Igbo owned company you list in Ogun / Lagos I will mention 10 Biggers doing exactly the same thing. I also bet you can not mention up to 3 solely owned igbo companies that lead in their industry be it in Alaigbo or anywhere else in Nigeria.

[quote author=AbaLion post=101566598]
Emphasis on "the north". At no point in history, both pre or post-independence were ibos ever ahead of the Yoruba - Never was and Never will be.
There is a reason that Yoruba have never been an inch bothered about your so called "ibo domination" fantasy which only existed in the imagination of an average ibo - the fact that Yoruba being the "head" would never give a damn regarding how the "tail" wags, so long it's stuck in between the legs.
The north could be much bothered about ibos flooding her region fill up job opportunities meant for the northerners being the most educationally disadvantaged at the time as rightly expressed by Ahmadu Bello. In contrast, the Yoruba region was the standard template such that it was readily the best option for a lot of Igbos to get the best of western Education. The best of Igbo brains in the mordern era, I dare say, are Southwest trained, Ngozi okonjo iweala, Chinua Achebe, your most prized assets had a bite of the cherry.
At a point, during colonialism, A certain Samuel Ajayi Crowther had come back from slavery as a missionary to teach your ibo ancestors how to read and write through the publication of the isuoma ibo premier - Till date, ibos had not shown appreciation, nonetheless, We Muuve!..
Till the end of the world, ibos can never catch up in any academic endeavor. For every 1 ibos produced, Yoruba would have produced 10 (and I'm being reasonable)
What is the meaning of the word Ibo please?

What fraction of Igbos trade in computer village ? You think you are arguing with a dropout or you are just being stupid or you have forgotten how you were chased out by the iya oloja when you fathers were misbehaving ? So in your delusion you think igbo control 10% market share in Ikeja.. Lol. I leave your tribesmen that know about Ikeja to educate your foolishness on that
Did you no read where I told igbo run spare part n Okrika industry ?!
Do Igbos control 5% in trade fair or which trade fair are you referring to ? Is it the one in Tafawa Balewa Sq or the one in Alaigbo ?
Aside Alaba in Ojo Igbos do not dominate any other market in Nigeria. Ladipo market located in Mushin is an entire city of market on it own n in the market igbo dominate only the spare part section. The foam associate there is exclusive to the Yorubas n that is the biggest in the entire country. The same goes for the wood/furniture/fittings. Igbos are left to hustle for crumps in the printing press industry over there that is also the biggest concentration in Nigeria. The food market at Ojuwoye if your father dare peep talk less of trying to sell there you will be beheaded in broad daylight.
The same with the provision store over there so try get more facts before making senseless comments on NL.

Funny Igbos n foolishness.
IT is debatable but you can not list a single IT company of any repute not matter how insignificant.. Lol. Yorubas beat your fathers in that field 99-0
Qho counted the professor to know Igbos have more or where did you get that statistics from Ipob buruea of foolishness or where ?
Take time out to visit Agbara n Ilupwju industrial estate let you father tell us how many manufacturing companies is own by Igbos there.

|Re: Reno Omokri Replies Olu Okeowo: Is The SouthWest Just Area Boys & Fake Pastors? by chrisblack: 9:00pm On May 11|
Simplyleo:Reno is not 100% correct?
1. "And it is highly ignorant to say that the Southwest depends on other regions for electricity. Not true. The Southwest has Papalanto, Olorunsogo 1 and 2, Egbin Thermal Power station, and Omotosho 1 and 2"
Mr Okeowo is Correct. All the power plants stated above are all powered by gas brought in by pipelines from the Niger Delta and Mind you with all their combined capacity they cant provide upto 40% of what is needed in by the southwest.
2.In terms of commodities, the Southwest is Nigeria’s cocoa and cassava heartland and competes with Benue as the yam centre of Nigeria.
Over the years we have continually lost our dominance in the area of cocoa.it baffles me to see that it's only in the southwest cocoa plantations are been cleared and turned into layouts for new buildings, what is the essence of producing high quantities of cassava and the effect is not felt by the immediate populace. the cost of garri is beyond the reach of the poor southwesterners.
3" the Southwest has one of the most viable assets in Nigeria-ports. Tin Can Island port, and the Lagos Port Complex, are the gateways to Nigeria’s commerce"
.Yes for now we have the ports,but what stops others from building theirs in the nearest future?
4.When you add the fact that the Southwest has the most developed infrastructure in Nigeria, and that her industrial capacity is more than the industrial capacity of the rest of Nigeria combined (it will shock you to note that Ikeja Local Government Area and Agbara Industrial estate alone, consume more electricity than the entire Northwest, or that Alaba International Market generates almost $7 billion annually), you begin to understand that that statement by Mr. Okeowo is fallacious.I partially disagree with Reno to some extent. Looking at the so-called infrastructure.less than 10% is properly developed if we are to judge by the standard of what is on the ground. Awolowo laid a solid foundation for us but we messed it up.some of our state capitals have nothing to show as developments.go around to various local governments and see how backward they are.
"Lagos state has a bigger internal economy than Kenya or Ghana. If Lagos state were a country on its own, she would have the 7th largest economy in Africa with a GDP of over $100 billion (compared to $95 billion for Kenya and $67 billion for Ghana). Yes i agree with this,but the fact remains lagos is still backward compared to cities of its class around the world. there are more places in lagos that are worse than some villages. For over 20yrs we have been celebrating mediocre development spent more than 14yrs building a railway track that in sdtill in the work, Touts been elevated to positions of relevance and influence.Our teaming youths see no benefit in education due to the fact that the majority of those who have gotten the substandard education ended up being subservient to touts.
And funny enough, most people do not even know that the Southwest has oil in commercial quantity in both Ondo and Lagos. What has been the impact of such finds?
"So, it was very flippant and ignorant for Mr. Olu Okeowo to have badmouthed his own region so badly. Whose script is he acting? I do not know." He is not badmouthing is region but stating the obvious fact. We keep deceiving ourselves. we are leaving on past glory.
"I am not agitating for the division of Nigeria. However, to say that if Nigeria divides, the Southwest will suffer, is utter nonsense. I had previously thought Olu Okeowo was vacuous. But now, I am sure of it"
Reno in as much as i respect your take on some issues , I will disagree on these. I know in your heart if you truly love the Yorubas,you will tell us the truth. We have over the years retrogress if we are to compare ourselves based on what awolowo left behind.I agree Nigeria as composed had its effect,but the bulk of the blame belongs to us
"But why would a man of Southwest origin misrepresent his own region and people so badly?"He is not misrepresenting the southwest, rather he is drawing our attention to its rot and why we urgently need to stop the retrogression

Ehn, you must think I am dull? I guess I didn't know before I posted the link before mumuni.
I guess you have another link to prove your imaginary stats, or perhaps, according to your Otondo logic indigenes are expected to be lower than none indigenes?/
? Your logic is indeed ontodo just like you said.
blogger.Do u know how many igbos are professors
Do I know? No! Mr Otondo, you tell us Nah? Oya list them Mr oral-stats.

Imagine using super chicken(eagle) as a measure for overall sport. We know Yoruba people dominate table tennis, boxing, and the likes.
Look at what they've turned the super eagle to now? Nothing, absolutely nothing to write home about, and that is the only sport they dominate anyway.

The British brought the extremely advanced Igbo peeps from southern protectorate and freed slaves from Sierra Leone to organize things in Lagos. On the same level, the British also delegated extremely advanced Igbo peeps to organize social decorum in southwestern Cameroon. Where the British lacked required personals, they sent the Igbo peeps to deputize. How come "Aroke" were so smart yet they were not allowed to lead any organized youth scout in Lagos during the colonial era?
|Re: Reno Omokri Replies Olu Okeowo: Is The SouthWest Just Area Boys & Fake Pastors? by Idiko1: 11:35pm On May 11|
Arrant nonsense!!! There were governments before the NPC and NCNC coalition government and they were not led by Nigerians. Zik and NCNC forced the hands of the colonial masters to establish University Collage in Ibadan. Also University of Lagos was the product of NCNC under the federal ministry of education led by Aja Nwachukwu. In the same vein, Zik and NCNC established the first indigenous university in Nigeria. In addition, there was a high school in Nigeria fondly called "Eton College" of Nigeria and certainly not in Yoruba land. I do not join issue with silly and childish vomits as show with bolded in above crap.

I have always maintained that the Igbos got nothing on the Yorubas and not in the least bit in sports and entertainment.i have seen different commentators make spurious or unfounded claims that Igbos are ahead of the Yorubas in these industries and I’m gonna need to correct such erroneous thoughts that are based some people’s figment of imagination.
Just wanna set the record state as I hardly engage in tribal-bashing or supremacy and this not coming from a place of unnecessary braggadocio as merits and accolades abounds for Yoruba people due to the giant strides and exploits our tribesmen have been making sfor centuries and time immemorial,and still making,so this is coming for a place of tribal-ethnic pride and nothing more as we Yorubas should not be acting like the nouveau rich cos we’re so naturally blessed.
Now to the discourse I’m gonna base my remarks on the areas of “sports+entertainment “that someone falsely claimed the Igbos dominate without logical points,stats or empirical facts to back up this up.
Fashion:The Nigerian fashion industry is dominated by these designers and the names speak for themselves Folarin-coker(Tiffany Amber)Lisa folawiyo,Duro Olowu,Deola Sagoe,Frank oshodi,Zizi Cardow,Mai Atafo e.t.c
Media Radio and Tv personalities,Media Companies:These names are some of the biggest names if not the biggest in those industries:Toolz,Daddy Freeze,Dotun,Mo Abudu(Ebony Life Tv)Debola of Red Media who runs of the best PR companies in Nigeria just to mention a few.
Music:There’s no time in the history of music in Nigeria that the Igbos have dominated the Yorubas,the Yorubas have produced some of the most talented and technical musicians in Nigeria,musicians of international repute and critical acclaim be it indigenous music or contemporary times..From Fela,to KSA to Ebenezer Obey to Majek fashek,Barrister,Eedris Abdulkareem,Rappers Dagrin,Modenine,Vector,Olamide,Eldee,Dbanj Wande Coal,9ice,Wizkid,Davido,Tiwa Savage,Yemi Alade,internationally we have got Nas “Nasir Oludara Jones” one of the greatest Hiphop Artiste of All time,Grammy Award winning Sade Adu,Seal and chamillionaire I have not exhausted this list btw and I just decided to cherry pick and skim off the top if we’re talking numbers we have got too many Cos we virtually dominate the music industry in Nigeria and for the person that made that ignorant comment of Igbos dominating this industries should kindly compile the list of Igbo Musicians or Artistes,artistes of Igbo extraction who are greater,more talented and bigger than the Yorubas I mentioned up there.
As for Sports,one of the biggest and most followed sports is basketball and the NBA in particular “Hakeem The Dream Olajuwon” a full blown Yoruba is one of the Greatest Player of All Time Top 10 and he ain’t 10th,Giannis Adetokunbo corrupted to Antetokoumpo who has won Multiple MVP awards in the NBA is Yoruba Just to mention a couple I’d like anyone to Avail me the list of Any basketball player of Igbo Origin who is any close to be being as big as Giannis in the NBA or can smell an inch or just hold 10% of Olajuwon’s greatness..
In combat Sports we’ve got Anthony Joshua a world heavyweight Champion in Boxing and multiple titles holder and we’ve got Israel Adesanya in MMA who’s a world champion in his category too.
Lastly in Football for every Nwankwo Kanu,Mikel Obi and JJ okocha,Christian Chukwu we have got Segun Odegbami,Rashidi Yekini,Who is still the record goalscorer for the super Eagles of Nigeria,Muda Lawal,Teslim Balogun,Obafemi Martins.
Actors;Even in the English speaking Nollywood claimed to be created by Igbos some of their biggest stars are Yorubas especially if the old Nollywood is being talked bout the other big actor are of South-South Origin so I don’t understand where the false claims of Igbos dominating “Nollywood” is concerned.Ramsey Adetokunbo Nouah,Omotola Jolade Ekeinde,Olu Jacobs,Desmond Elliot,Jide Kosoko,joke Silva,Bimbo Akintola,Yemi Black,Jibola Dabo are some of the biggest names in old English speaking Nollywood and they’re all Yorubas.
Yorubas also have breakaway stars from the Yoruba movie industry which includes Funke Akindele,Saidi Balogun,Yomi Fash Lanso,Funsho Adeolu,Bukky Wright,Femi Branch who are quite well known outside the Yoruba Movie industry.i won’t even dwell on the contemporary Nollywood Cos the Yorubas in there are given whoever a good run for their Money.
As per Diaspora for Every Chiwetel Ejiofor there’s Akinnouye-Agbaje,David Oyelowo,Hakeem kae Kazim,OT Fagbenle who all have Yoruba Ancestry.
The best and the biggest filmmakers and directors in Nigeria Today include Kunle Afolayan,Biyi Bandele,Niyi Akinmolayan,Uncle Tunde Kelani I’m talking of standard movies which gets screened in films festivals across the world not some mediocre,low-budget badly-conceived movies with unoriginal storylines and terrible pictures.
Comedy is dominated by the South South guys with the Yorubas ably represented too talk bout Deejaying we dominate that industry overwhelmingly.
As far as Entertainment and Sports is concerned in Nigeria or when people of Nigeria roots or descent in these industries or fields are being discussed then the Yorubas are seriously dominant followed by people from the South-South region the igbos are pretty much sat in third place.
This a verifiable fact and not a statement made out of whims or can be conjured out whoever’s limited imagination.

Oga use your brain and stop reasoning with your emotion who told you Zik forced the british to establish U.I? Why do you guys just like to vomit rubbish to massage your ego? Now you have admitted that federal ministry of education was led by an Igbo man and in a country that is ethnically divided who do you expect to be the vice chancellors of the federal universities?
Was an Ibo man the V.C of ABU or OAU then? Ofcourse not because those were still controlled by the regions. Now the question you should have answered is are the hausas more educated at the moment? If not why do they dominate all the civil service If you use your brain and not your emotion to answer that question you will find the truth to the first rubbish you posted.
|Re: Reno Omokri Replies Olu Okeowo: Is The SouthWest Just Area Boys & Fake Pastors? by reality1010: 7:28am On May 12|
For the yorubas i will sincerely advice they remain and work for the good of Nigeria. Yorubas v benefitted so much from the system more than the hausa fulanis. More yorubas in govt as civil servants. More yorubas as aides. More yorubas in oil companies that explore no oil in south west. The banking sector has more money from the south east and northern business men but the yorubas house the headquaters of these banks in Lagos. With a break up, people will move as well as business. New forces will emerge as well.
Mr Okeowo is right.
