That is why our people should do away with tribal sentiment. It doesn't make sense in this 21st century




AreaFada2:
Igede are vibrant people in Benue State. They are Edoid people via Edo North to where they are now.

They have faced marginalisation in Benue and have had to be resourceful and smart to survive and grow. When squeezed between Idomas and Tivs, it can't be easy. It's same problem minorities face across 9ja. The so-called big tribes would very much like to totally swallow up minorities, a modern colonialism at local level.

They are increasingly reconnecting with their kilt and kin in Edo.

Op, Igede doesn't end in Benue state. We have indigenous Igede's in cross river featuring prominently. I am from Gabu in Yala LGA of cross river state, an Igede nation. Infact the present house member representing Yala 1 constituency in cross river state house of Assembly is an Igede from Gabu. There other notable Igede speaking communities in cross river like Itekpa, Opriku, etc.

Btw, Igede's are not traitors so my Idoma friends should stop tagging us as one. We are two different tribes with similar cultures.
You're absolutely right. Also have a flourishing community of Igede people in Anyadaha, and Igbakobo. These are all adjoining communities with the Itakpa and Opriku you mentioned.

My grandad was buried in Opriku.

Glad to meet my brother here.

Dont know how long you've been on Nairaland but be prepared to tolerate alot of bulshit from those guys. Over the years, there's literally nothing they've not thrown at me. Recently they started claiming Ameka is Igbo land and part of Biafra. My clan, part of Biafra, how!!??

Very annoying species of humans.

Are you from Igede?

Fair enough, this settles it.
Our ties to Cross River state is so strong sometimes one can't even tell us apart.

There was a time a VERY CLOSE relative of mine was to be made the 4th citizen of Benue state, but was denied the appointment after some punks wrote the governor that we're from Cross River.

That is wrong Igede. You use "a ti lanyi" only when inquiring about one's health, one that's perhaps been ill lately.

The right form is "ó ti lanyi", in which case you're asking how one is generally, like "how are you?" wink

It's complicated. I can imagine how tough a decision it was for the Governor himself considering the fact that place of origin is still very much a consideration for appointments. Such a close affinity could leave anyone confused. I hope you make efforts to ensuring you establish your igede origin in Benue to avoid future impediments.

I even thought I was talking to an idoma person, Igbos are facing serious marginalisation in Nigeria right now, the reason for Biafra agitation and the current anarchy in South East, so you are in no position to even mock us.
You don't have a sense. I think you are smart enough after reading your write up but this assertion you made against Igbos shows how hateful you Benue people have against the Igbos.

Your fathers joined Hausa Fulanis to fight against Igbos during Biafra and Nigeria war.

But today what is happening? The same Fulanis are killing your people en mass. Fulanis have already concurred some villages in Benue.

You have not dealt with the Fulani killing your people and destroying your farmland but you are busy here talking trash against the great Igbo tribe that has been a Hausa Fulani nightmare since Nigeria had independence.

If not for how brave and wise Igbo people are Hausa Fulani could have Islamize Nigeria because it's only Igbos that challenge them in this country.

Mr man, soon all your people will start having bp because of the hatred you people have on the igbo tribe.

Watch your back because soonest you will come to seek refuge on Igbo land, because Fulani people has not finished dealing with you guys.

Learn to show love and appreciate great people because that is the only means you Benue people will come to beg igbos for help, to fight Fulani in your land.

Be wise!!!

Nice write up

Igede people are good people

[quote author=Igboid post=10

This people called Igede are full of greed and proudness. They never like seeing someone making it in life. And if u are making it in life, u will remain their enemy.

Secondly, they don't even love themselves. They will see themselves and be greeting each others as if they love themselves is a lie. All of this is just a pretence. They are hypocrite.

Thirdly, if u do business with them u will regret your life. I am currently in a farm partnership mess with one of the so called Igede guy and he wanted to divert the farm to his. But it can never happened because Igede can never be wiser than an Igbo man

Forthly, they don't like working for someone even when they are dying in hunger just because their poor mentality and reasoning will be telling them that if they work for u, u may become rich so, they prefer to be dying in hunger than to work for someone and make money. No wonder, they are in poverty.

Fifthly, their girls can use all their money and buy bleaching cream. And after that they will be thinking they have achieved something in life just because they bought bleaching cream and be looking like someone who need blood in their body.

But the good thing about Igede people is that they are accommodative and hospitality.

I know some people will come here to counter my Facts but I did not say the aforementioned characteristics of the Igede people just to tanished their image but I am saying it with my observations while doing business with them and also, I do stay with them when I come to their place for business

There is no rule that says that Ndiigbo must always be on defense and not on attack, is there?
