they are not renaming it, Igweocha has always been its name.

And how come the name of a town is your problem.

My dear, let me tell you what you do not know. Igbos want an Igbo ONLY country, but for some unknown reasons, IPOB wants the 1967 Biafra, plus other Igbos not captured in that Biafra. These are Igbos in Edo, Delta, Kogi and Benue. Some think it may be because of access to the sea that they want the minorities in the South, but that should not be an issue. Even if Ijaw, Ogoni, Annang, Ibibio and Ikwerre refuse to join Biafra, the Igbo nation can create access to the sea through the Urashi River and River Niger. But if the Ikwerre who deny their Igboness and Opobo which is owned by Igbo become part of the new nation, that would not be an issue since these are bounded by the Atlantic. So with either Opobo or Ikwerre, Biafra would have direct access to the sea, but if these vote in a referendum not to be part of Biafra, dredging the River Niger and Urashi River would be the options left. This could be settled through a maritime agreement. Afterall, oil and gas are piped from the SE and SS all the way to the North and beyond. So accounts can be balanced with that.

Having said that, let me also say that if Igbos leave Nigeria without the Southern minorities, it will be a tough call for them to get their own country. These things just do not work that way. You see, Igbo are paying the price of self determination and it is only a matter of time for the world to hear them. Let me tell you what will happen then. The call for referendum will be honored and that referendum will be for all Igbo in Nigeria and the former Biafra of 1967. Nevertheless, the minorities such as Ijaw can speak up loudly not to be included in the referendum but I doubt that that would work with the UN. All would be made to participate and decide if they would be part of Biafra or not. That is when people like your daddy can make their voices heard. Ijaw is a closely knit tribe and I am sure that they can make their voices heard as one people and decide not to be part of Biafra. In which case, they revert back to Nigeria when Igbo and others that vote Yes exit.

Now on a final note, do not think that Ijaw and the minorities would casually demand for a referendum after Igbo has gone. It doesn't work that way, the choice before them is join Igbo or remain in Nigeria. There is no middle ground. I suspect that this is why IPOB is insisting on carrying along the minorities - the power in numbers. If Biafra exits without the minorities, not even in 100 years would they have the voice to get a referendum from the UN. They lack that clout as minorities, so their voice is Igbo. You can take a cue from the Kurds in Iraq and Turkey who have been agitating for decades. Igbo are paying with resilience and blood. Can the minorities do that when Igbo are gone? Good luck to you.

You're a wise man.

they are not renaming it, Igweocha has always been its name.

And how come the name of a town is your problem.
Which Igweocha is the name are you Ok? It is the Ikwerres who call their own part of Port harcourt Igweocha, Okrika people never call their own part Igweocha but Hakoti kiri as seen in your screen shot. Port harcourt is not own by the Ikwerres alone, Okrika people also own port harcourt.
So naming all port harcourt Igweocha which the ikwerres call their own part is not going to work mr man.
It is my problem because Okrika people ( who are ijaws) also own part of Port harcourt, and we ijaws are not going to allow you igbos to renamed their own part of Port harcourt into something we ijaws don't understand!

You are trying to hide something. Can't you see it's written the native name is igwuocha which means that's the original name.

okrika then decide to refer to it as porakot (its obvious its a pidgin form of port harcourt) the Hakoti kiri means Hacourt family (Hakoti =harcourt and kiri =family or group)
(it's written there okrika word not name because it had it name already)

Igwuocha has been the name.. Only children of nowadays that don't know that.

Igweocha means nothing in Okrika language,and Okrikans have been in port harcourt since the days of Abraham!
Port harcourt was never Igweocha, your screen shot only prove that the ikwerres call their own part of the city igweocha which is their native language, which in turn is related to igbo.
Okrika people are not igbos they don't speak igbo, hence they call their own part Hakoti kiri.
And btw kiri is not family or group in Okrika language, kiri means ground wink
I am not hiding anything, it is you who is trying to twist history.

Where you keep your brain oga? You can't read or what? The native ikwerres name for the city is Igweocha, meaning that is what the ikwerres call it in their language.While the native Okrika name for the city is Hakoti kiri meaning,that is what the Okrikans call it in their language.

and am telling you Hakoti kiri is a name derived from Harcourt kiri meaning Harcourt family (kiri meaning family in okrika language) and porakot is a pidgin form of port harcourt still used by the Okrikans... So if they the Okrikans named the place from the words Harcourt (Hakoti) and porakot (port harcourt) what does that tell you...
It means the name was gotten after port harcourt was its new name.. What's so difficult to understand there?

You know the truth, you dont just wanna admit it.
Am sure you may not even be from Ph so you may not know the truth.

you know as language works don't you? Kiri means ground, earth, land and by extension family depending on the context... Just like using ndi and ala interchangeable.. You guys know what I'm saying you just wanna distort the truth

oga see you think I'm one of those that go about insulting people in a matured argument? No

If you've noticed I and Grayson have been stating our opinions without insulting or throwing words at any body... So if you want to join the discussion you have to behave like someone matured alright.

This discussion is not for immature people.. Cheers

And to what you just said I have replied Graysons so you can go and check.. Ciao

Mr man you are telling me what? Oga read your screenshot very well, it is obvious na night school you attend!
If you igbos wants to rename port harcourt to Igweocha whatever that means, make sure you start and end it in ikwerres and the uplands and don't cross your land grabbing tendency into Okrika people territories and the Riverine area, because that will be meet with war.
