we are in a modern age no body has time for such thing just embrace latin writing system and case close Hausa people in the north use ajami before colonial times but after the british inversion they do all the posible things to stop hausa from using there writing system so u see
You can can't use latin to write the Igbo very well, Chinese character is better but Igloos should develop their own

tochukwuifeduba: History Of Nsibidi the Ancient Igbo Alphabet; Britain Destroyed Igbo Civilization
Nsibidi (also known as nsibiri, nchibiddi or nchibiddy) is a system of symbols indigenous to what is now southeastern Nigeria that is apparently an ideographic script, though there have been suggestions that it includeslogographic elements.The symbols are at least several centuries old: Early forms appeared on excavated pottery as well as what are most likely ceramic stools and headrests from the Calabar region, with a range of dates from 400 to 1400 CE. There are thousands of nsibidi symbols, of which over 500 have been recorded. They were once taught in a school to children.Many of the signs deal with love affairs; those that deal with warfare and the sacred are kept secret.Nsibidi is used on wall designs, calabashes, metals (such as bronze), leaves, swords, and tattoos. It is primarily used by the Ekpe leopard secret society (also known as Ngbe or Egbo), which is found across Cross River among the Ekoi, Efik, Igbo people, and other nearby peoples. Outside knowledge of nsibidi came in 1904 when T.D. Maxwell noticed the symbols. Before the British colonisation of the area, nsibidi was divided into a sacred version and a public, more decorative version which could be used by women.Aspects of colonisation such as Western education and Christian doctrine drastically reduced the number of nsibidi-literate people, leaving the secret society members as some of the last literate in the symbols. Nsibidi was and is still a means of transmitting Ekpe symbolism. Nsibidi was transported to Cuba and Haiti via the Atlantic slave trade, where it developed into the anaforuana and veve symbols. The origin of nsibidi is most commonly attributed to the Ejagham people of the northern Cross River region, mostly because colonial administrators found the largest and most diverse nsibidi among them. Nsibidi spread throughout the region over time and mixed with other cultures and art forms such as the Igbo uri or uli graphic design. In 1909 J. K. Macgregor who collected nsibidi symbols claimed that nsibidi was traditionally said to have come from the Uguakima, Ebe or Uyanga tribes of the Igbo people, which legend says were taught the script by baboons, although one writer believes Macgregor had been misled by his informants Nsibidi has a wide vocabulary of signs usually imprinted on calabashes, brass ware, textiles, wood sculptures, masquerade costumes, buildings and on human skin. Nsibidi has been described as a "fluid system" of communication consisting of hundreds of abstract and pictographic signs. Nsibidi was described in the colonial era by P.A. Talbot as "a kind of primitive secret writing", Talbot explained that nsibidi was used for messages "cut or painted on split palm stems". J.K. Macgregor's view was that "The use of nsibidi is that of ordinary writing. I have in my possession a copy of the record of a court case from a town of Enion [Enyong] taken down in it, and every detail ... is most graphically described". Nsibidi crossed ethnic lines and was a uniting factor among ethnic groups in the Cross River region

Ladimi1234: Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, has advised Ibos in Nigeria and in the diaspora, to listen to him as he is a prophet they must listen to ahead of the 2019 elections.
Speaking at an APC meeting in Anambra state on Tuesday January 1st, the former Anambra state governor said it is in the “interest of the Igbo ” to vote for President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019 because that would be the shortest way to achieving an Igbo presidency come 2023.
Mysteryque: A support group for the reelection of President Muhammadu Buhari, Buhari/Osibanjo Mandate Group, BOMG, Wednesday said there is no love lost between the president and Igbo people.
This was disclosed by South East coordinator of the group, Chief Chukwudi Ezenyi while speaking with newsmen at the zonal office of the group in Nnewi, Anambra State.
He said that “the rate at which the present administration of President Buhari is attending to infrastructures in Igboland shows that the president is not by any means an enemy of Ndigbo but a friend.”
Chief Ezenyi flanked by his executive council said the Onitsha-Enugu-PortHacourt road became a death trap for the sixteen years that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, was in control of the nation.
“The second Niger Bridge has become issue for electioneering campaign for every succeeding administration before the advent of the government of President Buhari who has committed so much resources to the bridge which would give a respite to travelers in Igboland.
“President Buhari has done so well not minding that his performance is not being showcased because of his style of not making noise about what he is doing.
“The war against corruption is a successful one, before he came on board, corruption has been institutionalized, but Buhari has many opportunities to illegally enrich himself but decided to stay clean.
“The opponents of President Buhari always accuse him that the corruption war is one-sided but I always reply them that it is better to start the war somewhere if not Nigeria would collapse.”
Chief Ezenyi pointed out that the mandate of his group is to showcase the achievements of President Buhari and his government in the South East and by so doing educate the Igbo on the need to be wise politically.
He expressed optimism that the less than five percent votes recorded by Buhari in the last presidential election will improve to nothing less than forty percent by the time the group is through with it assignment.
