Because of Igbo arrogance and domineering tribalism, western cameroun opted to leave Nigeria all together.

I don't know if that's true but you bring up interesting arguements. I thought they left mainly because of the demographic composition of country in general and assuming they'd have certain rights under federal system practiced there at the time.

The pogroms that claimed thousands of Igbo life's was still taking place after the aburi accord,this made Ojukwu declare biafra, because the killings were so much on igbos,he wanted to save them in his own way,Many dead bodies of igbos arrived the east at that year 1966 to be buried.
We are talking about people loosing their life's in thousands up north,you are talking about "taking orders" and "ND oil".

And what carried you to the north?

The British used to address the north as a Fundamentalist Islamic State. Other nationalities down south where weary of having anything to do with the north and even wanted a seperate nation out of NIgeria but you Igbos whom escorted the WHite man as houseboys, cooks, cleaners and clerks to the north saw the north as heaven on earth when compared to your graveyard region.

I have no pities for your people then and now as you are the same idiots the north will target in their region in order to foist their political will,

It is in the public domain and they made it clear that Igbos had concentrated everything in Enugu and dominated all aspects of both governance and civil service of the defunct Eastern region.

Before there was an Abuja, there was Enugu.

You will go to Calabar and find an Igbo as a Clark in a Local Govt office. Where Igbos the only educated people?

You can not in any way exonerate Igbos for the foolishness they found themselves.

Who send una to go an oust the PM?

Who send una to dismantle regional govt and place yourselves as heads of govt under an Igbo dictorship?

Understably you never had any kings or traditional stools beyond your hamlet chief, was that reason enough to disolve all tribal associations and disregard tribal leaderships like the House of Chiefs in Yoruba land ?

Your gross primitive ways made you to accept Marxism without question and so you thought of forcefully unifying strangers whom your ZIk wanted to remain together after British exist.

It is no secret that the north and WEST wanted an independent state but only you Igbos craved for one NIgeria knowing fully that if a referrendum was extended on the question of who wants to remain in Nigeria every nationality would have left you to your blighted 5 leprous states.

If truly it was Igbos that did all these Anti-North, Anti-Yoruba, Anti-Minority stuff why havent the non Igbos who have all held the center for a generous amount of time haven't undone it? After more than 50yrs

Its simple Igbos didn't do...

I thought you were going to educate me, but it's been reverse
Lost interest..

We're talking about the 1961 plebiscite right? Most of the issues you refer to happened after the coup in 1966. The southern Caneroons left while their northern Muslim neighbors stayed and joined Nigeria. Considering how they're whining about oppression now it might have been better to stay in Nigeria who knows.

BigSarah:


Exactly

Yeah I'm wondering why northern cameroon would join. Am I to assume the same domineering tendency wasn't prevalent in northern Nigeria compared to the old Eastern region.

First of all after 1970 some parts of Igbo land were carved out to remove them from the possession of oil and economically strangulate them,which didn't work the way they wanted,parts of Ndokiland from Abia state was moved to akwaibom,Obigbo moved from imo to rivers state and even had a name change from "Obigbo to "Oyigbo","Oyigbo" being an Ogoni name,parts of Egbema went into rivers,etc, so Igbo land is not restricted to just south east as misguided and mischievous lots wants us to believe.
Igbos had kings since time immemorial,what they didn't have is a single sovereign king that rules over all igbos.
Igbos don't think the marxist way to start with,I wonder where you got that from,Yes zik wanted a unified Nigeria at first.
Note:If the others wanted no Unified Nigeria,they could have rejected it at all cost,they eventually went with a unified One Nigeria.

Igbos are naturally business minded and travellers and also adventurous,go and also ask the igbos in Dubai, USA and Norway what they are doing there,even today I don't know any where in the world you won't find an Igbo.If they go any where they hope to succeed.
Nobody is comparing North with east anyways,and we are also making it clear to those outside igboland to start investing home.

Victor Rothschild was named as the 5th man in the Cambridge double agent spy rings.

He attended Cambridge as well and it is known that Cambridge was a recruiting ground for communist spies and aggitators since the Russian revolution.

Oxford to a large extent was also known as a radicalizing ground into communist and leftist ideology.

Ojukwu was a card carrying member of the British Communist Party (Oxford Branch) and he was heavily inspired by the likes of Che Guevera and Fidel Castro (hence the beard).

He joined the Nigerian Army as a recruit solely to stage future violent mutiny and a coup.

Zik was also a flaming leftist just as virtually all Igbos who were indoctrinated in the UK under the guise of an education.

Mr Man, you are wrong about ZIK, Azikiwe was pro-west Capitalist ideologue. He schooled in US and not UK.

We are smarter than most tribes in Africa, reason we must ditch some attributes that make us look weak to ethnicities with expansionist agenda like Fulanis and Igbos.

If you had read any history, you wouldn't have typed this. Zik left Nigeria several weeks before the coup, he was well aware of it and was hoping to become the head of government after the coup.
He went for medical checkup and after the medical checkup refused to come back home, instead he went to stay in Brazil till the coup was executed.
After the coup, he wrote a letter to ironsi subtly asking to be reinstated

Nope...do some research man....And see how he fled...
