Which Tribe of Nigeria Is Largest In-terms Of Population(both home and diaspora? by Slizbeat(m): 7:32pm On Jun 13, 2012
Having done my research for a while, i discovered something: that the largest tribe isnt the hausa's, what the hausas do is to count their goats and cow during census and proclaim themselves the largest in order to get more allocation from the federal govt. The yorubas and the igbos are by far larger than the hausas. Including those at diaspora. Then again i thought the yorubas are more in population but i did more research and found out that the igbos seems more.
REASON- According to wikipedia, igbos are of different kinds which of the majority are the Igbo Nigerians, others include the Igbo Americans that are majorly found at virginia, new york, boston e.t.c, Igbo britons, Igbo jamaicans, Igbo chinese e.t.c. and they are 45-49million. Just search "IGBOS" on wikipedia and go through it. Not that the yorubas dont have many at diaspora such as there are yorubas at BENIN, TOGO and GHANA(pure citizens) and are over 30million in population but cant be upto that of the igbos. The hausas are 30-35 million. Again, the igbos are known to travel wide than any other tribe and are mostly sold during slave trading. So i would give mine to the igbos. What do you think and which should be given?
please this thread is meant to be peaceful. Any tribalistic sympathizer should not comment as it shouldnt raise tribal war. Just state yours, thanks.
