Simple answer.
Their disdain for others. Leads them to attempt to cheat others especially others different from them.
Learnt this the tough way.


A logical and sensible human would ask the so called Nigerians that hate him for their reasons

A dull chestbeater would first assume someone hates him, then go on to talk less of others and their culture just to praise himself and accuse everyone else but himself

I was interacting with a 12 year old chap, when he spoke of his displeasure of Ibos, and I was very curious to know why from his single decade in life experience, then he went on to explain his experiences buying things from ibos, from ordinary phone charger to many more dubious trades that ended up getting him in problem

the greatest nigerian basketball players are yorubas. Hakeem olkajuwon, giannis are yorubas. the fastest man in nigeria is Olusoji Adetokunbo Fasuba. football I can give it to you. Nollywood makes the most money from yoruba movies. When did delta state become igbo? The best high life musicians are yorubas. the biggest market in west Africa is Kejetia market which is located in ghana. Zenith bank owner is from delta and another tribe.

The truth is Achebe was a fool as many igbo elders. Another is the fool that drafted the unitary decree n was weeping for Atiku, I have forgotten the name of the fool. That is why you need a meaningless writeup to explain the foolishness of Achebe.

When you Igbos talk about superiority I wonder where it came from. The bust 1920 to 1935 I just de laf with such foolishness.

Person wey read the write up from Achebe will think Igbo dominate every industry in Nigeria but aside fan yogort n okrika business igbo do not even have 10% representation.

Imagine if someone like Soyink sit to write about the superiority of the Yorubas in Nigeria from being the economic fortress saving the country even before 1960 to churning out great minds in Awo OBJ Gani Beko n others. Leading democracy fights, the only harbinger of peace unity etc

Truth is achebe tried to simplify the problem

Truth is Nigeria is a complex mix of capitalist and socialist with few Communist

Unfortunately socialist are more and capitalist are few less than 40% but we are forced to practice capitalism because of American

Socialist see capitalist igbos as aggressive , rude , domineering ...that's all they complain about the igbos ...they hate igbos but don't honestly know why but the hatred is deep ...but they still do business with the igbo man even with the hate ...reason why British said igbos are victims of their own success

Yoruba are in a unique situation because they are 50;50 that's why there are yorubas that get well with igbos the capitalist the ones that are not really into politics except for few like makinde , obasanjo n the rest .... tinubu n most Yoruba Muslims are socialist reason they hate igbos

Fulanis are extremely socialist in nature reason I was suppressed igbos loved yaradua ....Benin and ijaws are socialist reason they like igbos the least ..esans , idoma , anionmas , ishekiri , akwa cross are mostly capitalist reason they roll well with igbos

Ikwerres , ekpeye n owerri are the few socialist igbos ...the other two deny being igbos but owerri can't really

Honestly it's a complex mix

For a socialist capitalist scatter the order of things , they are rude , they challenge Norm ( socialist call this domineering ) , they are loud etc ...

For capitalist socialist are lazy , not smart , holding capitalist back , dull , etc

Untill we understand each other we can't solve this conflict

Do u know that south west has the highest number of brown roofs and mud houses in Africa due to poverty.Then why should igbos be envious of yorubas,igbos today dominate in sport,tranportation,housing and estates,commerce&industry,education,banking and finance etc.
Yes, according to ipob bureau of statistics.

Where are the stats...

The 2nd richest black man in the world is a yoruba man.

The 2nd richest black woman in the world is a yoruba woman.

In terms of education and quality yoruba land boosts of some of the best universities in Nigeria.

You have ifejuna, we have Anthony Joshua, Isreal Adesanya, teslim balogun.

Where are the stats to support your claim of onitsha main market being the largest when some markets in kano and even lagos dwaf your fake products market.

In banking both owners of zenith and uba are not from the south east but are from Delta State.....which aren't Igbo territory. GtBank, fcmb, first Bank, wemabank are all controlled by Yoruba's.

The owner of the 2nd largest commercial farm in Nigeria is a Yoruba man.

Your claim of the largest real estate owners is false based off biafruad stats. The biggest estate owners in Nigeria are northern royal fathers followed by south west royal fathers......2x2 shops yes... maybe for flatin0s.

Music Industry: obviously yoruba dominated and controlled(we hear that everyday from your brothers) Yoruba is the language of the Nigerian music industry.

Movie Industry: check out the top 5 grossing Nigerian movies of all time.... they're all produced by Yoruba's.

Technology and Start-ups: foreign funding into tech startups owned by Yoruba's reached $1.2billion in 2020 alone. We control tech and fintech.

Yoruba culture is dominant culture in southern nigeria.

Yoruba language is the dominant language in southern nigeria.

I can go on all day.....

Flatin0s would always play catch-up with Yoruba's.
Remind him that a Yoruba man just acquired ShopRite.

A Yoruba man own globacom

A Yoruba heads mtn in West Africa

A Yoruba man own two airport in the UK.

A Yoruba small girl is the best mathematician in the world.

A Yoruba girl is the wrestling champion

The only Nigerian man in WWE is a Yoruba man.

Let me sto here first....
