Politics / Re: How Come Ijaws Are 15million People? by horsepower102: 4:38pm
Coconuthead126:
I swear on God who made me, in all my years of staying abroad, I've only met one Ijaw person and that was far back in the USA during my Junior college year, one pretty girl like that. Apart from her, I've never seen any Ijaw person again... The Nigerians you are more than likely to meet and interact with anywhere in the diaspora are Igbos, Yorubas, Edo, and Efik/Ibibios in that particular order... the best way to ascertain if a tribe has a huge population is through the diasporan numbers of that ethnic demography... so when you put all these into consideration, you'll know there's absolutely no way Ijaw people are 15 million people, Efik/Ibibio definitely have more population than them abeg.

I suspect this is the case for most groups who actually travel around. It’s almost like their claimed population is false.
Actually it is.

There is no single archaeological finding that points to ancient ijaw civilization in the Niger delta region. But you can find archeological findings of efik, Igbo, ibbibio, annang etc.

Just like the Fulanis, they are settlers that turned into occupiers.

And I have never meet anybody that is ijaw, is like they have something in common with Fulani which is lie and more lies

A lot of groups that they claim their lands are just tolerating them for the sake of peace but their day of reckoning is coming. And just like the Fulanis will answer to their evils, so would the ijaws. It’s just a matter of time.

The ijaws are the water version of Fulanis. They are not even indigenous to the Niger delta region as their language is not unified nor related to languages in the area. This is an established fact by linguistic studies.

They came to so many places that they occupy today as settlers who came to fish.

Just like the ancestral home of the Fulanis is futa jalon, the ancestral home of the proto-ijaws is in coastal Ghana regions.

Their minority status and low population is the reason why they have aggressive expansionists agenda and claim those who cannot understand them or related to them.

The only reason they made progress of this abuse is that they took advantage of the post civil war situation in Nigeria were the Fulanis rewarded them with maps that falsely expanded their territories.

So many groups that ijaws say are not Igbo or ibbibio or Annang. But when those groups speak their native language, no ijaw man or woman can understand what they are saying.

Even some ijaws cannot understand each other groups language without pigeon English.

Ijaw case is like butter when this cesspit ceases to exist. For now allow them to wallow in delusions on nairaland and inflate their population to 50 million.

If Nigerians truly believed that Igbo biafra would fail, they would have let Igbo leave a long time ago.

If Nigerians truly believed in themselves and their abilities, they would have let igbos leave a long time ago.

There is a reason why those Nigerians that hate Igbos so much also hate to see them leave.

It happened in 1951 na. Its not that far. Dennis Osadebay coined the term Anioma in 1951 on his own without anybodys consent. So such couldn't be a basis for Ika to drag the good people of Enuani into their personal slavery.
Asaba, Ogwashi-Ukwu Nri, Akwukwu-Igbo and the rest have always been known as Enuani from time Immemorial. So Ika should enjoy and maintain their slavery in peace

Thank you for saying this. Asaba and other enuani clans have always been comfortable with their Igboness. They never once claimed that bini nonsense.
I am Enuani indigene and was never raised to deny igbo identity.
See the progress Asaba is making today, there is a reason why so many south east igbos are developing the city. They feel at home at Asaba.

Nna, I want to give this saga time to germinate before interfering.
There was a time Ika people, Ikwerre, Ọgba, Ekpeye and Omuma trended that they are Bini. That they come from Bini royal lineage through one run away Prince or the other but the Oba of Bini and Bini Court made it clear to them that none of their Prince were missing but they didn't get the hint. They attacked their kins all because of the omen surrounding Ndigbo after the War.
Now, Bini and recently Mr Omokri have come out to prove that they were super power in the ancient time. To show visible proof of their subjugated/conquered people, they are now saying that they once conquered the afamed unconquerable which is the Igbo people. To give visible proof of it, they want to point out their slaves. Who did they point at? The same Self hating Igbo that said they are from Bini. That is the same Ika, Ikwerre, Omuma and Ekpeye
In as much as it is logical because the self hating igbo claimed to be under Bini but the circumstances of their position in the empire is not acceptable in the Royal Court. They claim to be offsprings of Bini Prince but now they are being told otherwise, that they are slaves not royalty.
The bad thing here is that the Bini and Itsekiri are dragging the entire Anioma into this nonsense forgetting that it is only Ika that wants to be enslaved.
Anioma was formed in 1951 so the Bini/Itsekiri should point towards Ika and leave the good people of Enuani alone

Exactly they should leave my Enuani people out of this nonsense. My people have never had any doubts about their Igboness including me.

Ika and Ukwuani people that is full of bini lovers and Igbo deniers are the ones that should defend themselves.

IPOB and MNK are really deluded people.
They have done us a whole lot of disservice especially on relationship with minorities.

On the other hand, even without knowing it, like this OP posits, they have helped many blind Ndiigbo see the Minorities on a more microscopic lens, even without knowing it.

And thats exactly why I owe MNK's IPOB so much gratitude. They forced the green snakes out of the green grass. Now Igbos especially the youths know better.

One thing I know about Ndigbo is that when they stand by you, they stand by you but the opposite is also true.

I can't fault your logic at all.

Our support for GEJ in 2011 when we could have insisted he stepped down for the North to finish their tenure and hand over to SE is another case in point.

If we were ruthless enough and not sentimental. GEJ could have been thrown under the bus by us through declaring support for a Northerner to complete Yaradua tenure.
You can be sure that if the roles were switched, that's exactly what the SS would have done, you just have to look at the civil war and the presidential elections of 1979 and 1983 where they threw us under the bus to protect their own interests to get the gist.

I think going forward, alot has to change in how Ndiigbo relate with minorities and indeed the entire Nigeria.

It should not be about bitterness towards any group, neither should it be about solidarity or useless sentimental non existent brotherhood towards any group .
It should constantly be about protecting Igbo interests irrespective of who gets left in the lurch just to protect those interests.

It has already began. look at the PIB law that just passed. Did you hear one single resistance from Igbos?

When the coming generation comes to power, they will remember this time period. No more sentimental non existent brotherhood.

Just strictly Igbo interest whether under one nigeria or outside of it.

You totally missed the point with your comment. It’s one thing to reject MNK’s version of Biafra but it’s totally another thing to spill vile and hatred towards igbos.

Most igbos support igbo only country but Nnamdi Kanu supports a multiethnic country. Being the loudest voice with a microphone, those who hate igbos saw it as the perfect excuse to unleash their venom.

But in the process, they exposed themselves.

There is no such thing as Igbo and Niger Delta hatred anywhere in reality.

I believe what people say online over what they say in public.

Online people say their true feelings without mincing words.

In public, people pretend to be nice and put on their fake smile.

The point of this thread is that Ndiigbo are in a better place for knowing the true intents and feelings of their neighbors. This will hopefully put them in a better position to make good decision about their future. Whether they remain in Nigeria or not.

This wouldnt have been possible if MNK led IPOB didnt unknowingly expose this.

I feel that most Igbos now have a better sense of direction in pursuit of freedom.

This is a generational lesson but it needed to be learnt.

So some Igbos expected love from those minorities that you plan to annexe their lands and force them into a Biafra nation that they don't want to belong to? Do you guys think at all?

Nnamdi Kanu's IPOB movement was very inclusive but most Igbos wanted a nation of their own. Nnamdi Kanu happened to be very vocal about his intent but most igbos never liked that idea.

Be calming down..
Jonathan Presidency made Niger delta .. especially the ijaws feel like they don arrive .. during the peak .. they started feeling like say Na their oil made Jonathan president ..

They became arrogant and started seeing themselves above igbos, smarter and looked down on igbos ..
brought one kind subtle hatred of igbos in ijaw especially bayelsa .. down to ijaws in southwest , those in rivers were very loyal to Patience till tomorrow. ..they started seeing patience as igbo woman that was controlling Jonathan ..
By the election year the saw that Jonathan has became a political orphan.. and igbos were only humans still loyal to him.

Part of the reason Asari supported Kanu 2015/16/17 till Buhari government start negotiating with Gej and considering them .. bought them over and made it seems like igbos were the reason why they kicked Jonathan

Na my people .. we know ourselves even for the bayelsa.


The good will Igbos once had for them and automatically gave them without any hesitation has gone forever. Most Igbos within the past 6 years have finally seen their true nature.

Unlike our parents generation that is very forgiving and forgetful, this current generation isn't. We are the ones that will run things in the future and our experiences will make us act differently.

I doubt IPOB or MNK did this knowingly.
If anything, IPOB and MNK were ignorant and frustratingly so, as far as relationship with minorities is concerned.
They practically stalled the movement by stupidly trying to accommodate obviously disinterested minorities.

No that was not MNK IPOB intention. But the unintended consequence was that it exposed the true feeling of minorities towards the Igbos.

This is something the average Igbo person had no Idea about.

This was an unintended consequence.

Remember, it is one thing to say you reject IPOB which any reasonable person would understand but it a totally different thing to use it as an excuse to spill and expose all your hatred for Igbos that you have been harboring for years.

Ndiigbo needed to know that that hatred exist and I cannot thank MNK"s IPOB enough for indirectly helping to expose it.

Politics / Nnamdi Kanu's IPOB: A Blessing In Disguise For Ndiigbo by horsepower102: 1:36pm On Jul 15
Growing up in Igboland, we were never raised by our parents to hate any Niger delta minorities. Our feeling towards them ranged from seeing them as our neighbors to some degree our brothers. This is despite the role some of them played during and after the civil war. In fact when GEJ came out as a presidential candidate, the average Igboman took him immediately as their own. The Igbos embraced him so fast that the Ijaws were shocked because it went against everything that they were told about Igbos.

I would like to say that there were few voices of reason on this forum that tried for so many years to warn Ndiigbo about the niger deltan minorites and their feelings towards Igbos but so many Igbos ignored them.

But to God be the glory Nnamdi Kanu came along with his version of IPOB. This forced the average Igbo person to start paying attention. The first couple of years of IPOB emergence, many Igbos were shocked at the level of hatred that the niger delta minorities were pouring towards them. Nnamdi Kanu's IPOB unknowingly made average Igbos to finally see the true colors of Niger delta minorities.

This is a lesson Igbos needed to learn and finally they heard it loud and clear.

This Igbo generation will be different from their parents generation. Thanks to Nnamdi Kanu's IPOB helping to show them the reality.

I see some people claiming that southerners are stupid for allowing the north to openly exploit us.

On a face value this argument sounds politically correct because it doesn’t single out any southern group.

But the reality is that Igbos in particular have been the single voice of reason in the south for decades about what the North plans to do.

The problem is that fellow so called southerners hate igbos so much that their ability to reason with Igbos is clouded by their hatred.

If Nigerian history has taught me anything, it’s is that Igbo are always made the villains when they voice the truth but eventually they always get vindicated.

Enough said.

The truth of the situation will eventually come out. For now let Nigerians have their celebration since Nnamdi Kanu is their biggest problem in life.

Some are celebrating his capture on empty stomach.

Some are celebrating even though their mothers and grandparents are under attack when they go to farm.

Some are celebrating even though they cannot travel in peace without bandits attacking them.

Some are celebrating while eating grass

Some are celebrating while their lives get materially worse.

Now Nnamdi Kanu has been captured, Nigeria’s economic situation will greatly improve. Average Nigerians will have better paying jobs. No more crowding of immigration offices to get out the country.
