Asaba Man Responds On Facebook To Asaba Is Igbo Claims

Asaba Inlaw: "In This Whole World You Couldn’t Find Anyone To Marry But An Igbo"

Short story: One of my earliest and most persistent memories is this - near my village, 1 kilometer from Asaba, was a camp where people lived.
Who are they I asked - “Wa bu Ndigbo” I was told. Translation: “They are Igbos”.
I was confused. Aren’t we Igbos, but I said nothing.
Another occasion I heard some commotion in the direction of the camp. Oh don’t be worried I was told. They are Igbos. Again so thought but we are igbos!


Fast forward 3 decades.
A friend of mine from Aba who married from Asaba, over a beer told me “I can’t get over Asaba people. During my native law, my wife’s people kept abusing her in the same language I spoke. They kept saying ‘so in this whole world, you couldn’t find anyone to marry but an Igbo?’”
These are true accounts.
People from my area… even the indigenes of ONITSHA (I’ve been told) consider themselves Not Igbo.
I grew up seeing my people refer to others as “Those Igbo people”.
I have just learnt that the phrase “Igbo enwere Eze” was coined by core Igbos to separate themselves from the Onitsha indigenes…
Following that logic, Asaba nwere eze .... kedụ ka ọ ga-esi bụrụ igbo?
ka anyi biri n’udo nwanne m nwoke
m zuru ikpe m

It’s not an issue to be swept under the carpet. We need to consider it seriously.

Just because everyone in America speaks English doesn’t change their ancestry (some are of German, Italian, Russian, African, Chinese ancestry...).
Ancestry can only be determined scientifically by DNA analysis. My sister discovered she has ancestors from Mali, Senega... of course!! The river Niger flows through those nations before it passes the shores of my village which sits on the West Bank of the Niger net Asaba.

Bottom line, you cannot teach a man how to write with his left hand in old age.
The real issue is why so many Igbo speaking people reject the idea they’re Igbo. (Like some Egyptians in an interview I watched - who can’t understand why they’re considered Africans at all!).
Let’s have an academic discussion why!
We may learn valuable lessons.

Good morning.

I don't know about other igboid delta but you see Anioma and Ika especially Asaba, Ibusa, Ogwashi, okpanam, etc
if you want them to beat you very well just tell them that they're not igbo.

I wonder what these Tinubu urchins tend to achieve with these.

They should get it over that igbos are not limited to SE states.
states that was created by some mischievous aboki?

What is instructive about the Facebook post is that it was by an Igbo man trying to accertain Anioma is Igbo. Unlike nairaland, mostly real people comment on Facebook and all the comment from Asaba natives was vehemently hostile to the notion of them being Igbo. Entirely all old stories of parents and grand parents telling them not to distance themselves from Igbo. Niger Deltan Igbos only live on nairaland.

Asaba, ngwa, owerri, nsukka, afikpo etc speaks different dialects of Igbo language samething for ijebu, ekiti, ibadan etc speaks different dialects of yoruba language.

There will never be a critical mass of consensus to make these people Igbo no matter what you guys churn out here. The only consensus the people can reach without ripping the community in civil war is to remain in the Midwest Region Federation post Nigeria.
