Literacy depends on each individual jor.
Just b/c one person from one race/tribe decides to be stupid does not mean the others are stupid as well.

As for yoruba being the most educated, I'll need proof o

It depends on each individuals
I can point out dumb yorubas(I.E: Obsanjo) and smart yorubas(I.E: Soyinka)
Just like i can point out dumb igbo(I.E: Chimaroke) and smart igbos(I.E: Azikiwe, Emeagwali, and me).
I can also point out dumb Hausa(I.E: Abacha) and smart hausas(I.E: My friend).

Everyone is smart.
And for the rest of you trabilist, why don't you do us all a favor and kill yourself. Please. This world will be better without you guys in it.

Re: Yorubas Are The Most Educated Tribe In Nigeria by Jarus(m): 8:24pm On Oct 02, 2008
I have been seeing this topic for some days but I decided not to contribute, as I see it as another version of the ubiquitous ethnic jingoism that is fast becoming the hallmark of Nairaland.

However, if objectively done, I don't think there is anything wrong in commenting on which is the most educated tribe in Nigeria, inasmuch as abusive words are not used.

In this light here is my take on this topic, based on experience, observations and facts I know:

1. Yoruba are the most educated people in Nigeria closely followed by Igbo. My sole criteria here is percentage that are schooled, and got to higher academic levels.
2, Hausa are also coming up. With the current trend, they may close the gap in the next 50 years. But definitely can't overtake Yoruba.
3, Despite the fact that more Yoruba are schooled than Igbo, Igbo today matches, if not ahead of, Yoruba in terms of world-class scholars.
Igbo seems to be producing more World-class scholars than Yoruba in recent times. In the literary world for example, Soyinka is more world-class than any other Nigerian, but if we give Soyinka first position, the next 3 or 4 positions will be taken by Igbos in Achebe, Ekwensi etc. Honourable mention to the north's Abubakar Gimba.
In Economics, the nation's finests are also Igbo in Soludo,Okonjo Iweala,ezekweli etc, although Yorubaman Sam Aluko was the reference point in Economic scholarship in the 70's through 80's. Today, Igbos rule.

What of Emegwali? Do Yorubas have a match for him? Chimamanda, much as I hate her, is another rep for Igbo.

So let me conclude by saying while Yoruba value education more than any other tribe and are ready to spend their last penny to get their children educated, head to head Igbo beats any other tribe in terms of world class brains.

PS: I'm a proud but detribalized Yoruba. But I don't let tribal sentiments override my analysis. Most times, I've had to defend the Hausas on NL , not because I'm one of them but because most of their critics, Deepzone and Queenisha in particular, do so without objectivity.

Rotflmao! Nigeria does not need me? I should denounce my Nigerian Status. . . because I told you to take the advice you are so quick to dish out?

Are you kidding me?

Where is your proof? Where is the evidence to support your post. . . The post you used to rubbish another person's post? You told him to stop spreading false premise, yet you do the same. . . And before you say you know what you know, I should tell you it won't make a difference because until you show some supporting evidence, yours is also an idea you just plucked out of your imagination. Wishful thinking, my dear is NOT reality, okay?

Do you get it now. . . Mr. Nigeria?

@FSU. i think Kojeiwa was just asking a reasonable question that doesn't call for a fight. I'm not trying to support anybody here, but we need to make things clear to each other. You claimed to be educated but the education does not show in your behaviour (so sorry to say that if it hurts). if u're really educated, i think this kind of discussion should not be causing misunderstanding at all. Kojeiwa was not claiming that Yorubas' are the most educated tribe in Nigeria
(if you can't interprete his question very well). I would like to advise you to think deeply, apply your education and stop acting like you know everything, next time you want to participate in this kind of discussion.
