I like how the map group cluster of Igbo dialects together according to speaking patterns.
I.e Oguta in Imo and Ndokwas in Delta apparently speak something very similar.
Ikwerre and Etches (Rivers) with Oratta (Imo)
Orlu, Isu, Orsu, Ikeduru etc in Imo

The most surprising one are Ndizuogu, Uturu in Imo and umunze (Anambra), Isuochi and otanzu (Abia) clustering with the Enugu dialects

Politics / CIA Revision Of Nigeria's Ethnic And Religious Statistics. Shock Alert!! ... by Eziokwu1: 10:29pm On Nov 15, 2018
The Central Intelligence Agency- CIA, The much quoted American intelligence unit website has made a revision on their website's Nigerian section under People and Society, Ethnic groups as well as Religion.: Updated November 09 , 2018.

According to them, this is the reflection of Nigeria's ethnic statistics:
Hausa 27.4%
Igbo (Ibo) 14.1%
Yoruba 13.9%
Fulani 6.3%
Tiv 2.2%
Ibibio 2.2%
Ijaw/Izon 2%
Kanuri/Beriberi 1.7%
Igala 1%
Others 28.9%
Unspecified 0.2%

It then goes on to say Muslims are 51.6% of the country, Christians are 46.9 (of which Roman Catholics are 11.2%), Traditionalists are 0.9%, while unspecified are 0.5%
https://www.cia.gov/llibrary/publications/the-world-factbook/geos/ni.html

But knowing that this same CIA is the same agency responsible for the much peddled Hausa-Fulani 29%, Yoruba 21%, Igbo 18% Ijaw 10%, Kanuri 4%, Ibibio-Efik 3.5% Figure that was brandished around for a very long time, is it safe to say these new figures are also unrealistic and suspect?
Also the way they seem to be able to arrive at such precise percentages, plus their inclusion of an "unspecified" category seem to suggest that they did some sort of survey? (If they did, then when, where and how did it happen)

Take for example, How Igalas be 1% but Urhobos don't rank?
Hausas and Fulanis together are now 33.7% from 29%
Igbos are now 14.1% from 18%
Yorubas came as the biggest shock crashing down to 13.9% from a previous 21% More than 7% decrease.
Ijaws also went frm 10% to 2% (This one i am not surprised, because trust me, everyone knew Ijaws were not 10% of Nigeria)

The consequence of this is that Hausas alone are now the same population as Igbos and Yorubas combined, without even factoring in the fulanis YET.

What actually happened? Are the new stats more believable than the old one from the same Agency, or are both figures old and new total crap, which would only suggest that this so called agency are just amateurs sitting in some armchair in faraway Washington D.C making wild unresearched guesses? Hmmn.

Mr acclaimed flat-head, bera say somfn else than display your ethno-religious bigotry. Yorubas are blessed across board. Leave us to worry about our problem while you worry about bringing back uncle Nnamdi KANU that has betrayed ur confidence sir. If the Iwo people accept this development, so be it, otherwise the king is on his own. Hi, Jagaband d-Igbo

If u still believe the religion you practice has a connection with ur level of development, then you are d one who lacks common sense.

Oh yes, it has A LOT to do with your level of development.

Believe it or not. All religions are restrictive to various degrees, but some are just purely anti development/progress.

If you haven't realized this by now, OYO is your case.

Shut your mouth. Christianity coupled with Western education came to Nigeria through South west, even the Muslims of that time who are interested in western education were forcefully converted to Christians.. Therefore it's not surprising if educated yoruba elites are Christians. However despite the gap between Christians and Muslims in terms of Western education, Muslims are already demonstrated true competitive knowledge. Go and check performance of Muslim students in Nigerian universities, you will bow.


lool.

Nothing like Western Education. Knowledge is Knowledge, regardless of where it is obtained from.
Typical Islamic nutjob statement. No wonder the ideologies of groups like "Boko Haram" (Western Education is forbidden / a sin) thrives among ignorant muslims.


No wonder when they brought the so called "Western Education" and asked you people to send your children to school, you preferred sending them to "Ile Kewu" to go and kewu and-become societal nonentities.
The result is what we are seeing till date. The gap will always remain between Yoruba muslims and Yoruba christians, just the same way the gap will always remain between the South and the north in terms of education and general enlightenment, or do you think the christians are resting on their oars? to make matters even worse the Yoro-muslims are aspiring to be half baked Hausa-Fulanis a group of people who are already bad enough as things were already..Now, half baked ones??. Lmao.

The Oluwo better be tamed before he becomes a bone in the neck of traditional institutions in the south west. What the fvck is Emir or waziri of Yoruba land?

Kabiyesi Sir, please respect yourself before it is too late. Lots of us admire you because of the swag you brought to the Iwo throne. However, if you start bringing infested wood into our house the same way Afonja did years ago in Ilorin, we will have no choice than to turn against you. Fulani titles are not acceptable in the south west.

So you are still at the warning stage?
