Frankdoz8: Why The Igbos Are Known To Be The Wisest In Africa
The Igbo are the second largest group of people living in southern Nigeria. They are socially and culturally diverse, consisting of many subgroups. Although they live in scattered groups of villages, they all speak one language.
The Igbo have somewhat higher IQs than other Nigerians and there is more variation around the mean. That could explain the fairly large number of high IQ Igbos.
The Igbo man is that man that just after the years of genocidal attack on his region, his companies where seized up from him and was give to the Yoruba man to own it and run it as his own rightful ownership.
As if that was not enough, the Igbo man is that man that all his money in the bank were seized up, his millions and billions in the banks were all seized from him, and he was given only 20 pounds out of his own millions and billions, the Igbo man was told to start his life back just 20 pounds. tan
As if that was not enough, the market of the Igbo man that was known as one of the largest markets in Africa was brought down by the fire, all these happened to the Igbo man in the analog age.
The idea was to take away the Igbo man's right to survive from him but today the entire Igbos are still known to be the richest of all tribes, based on what history has to say about the attack on the entire existence of the Igbos and how each and everyone of them have individually made life better for themselves, you will be in total shock of not left with tears rolling down from your eyes, and I will not be surprised if you happen to be surprised about how come the Igbo man is doing much better than every other tribe in Nigeria.
IN FACT, it is now known that if you do not find an Igbo man in any particular part of the world, then there is no better way to know that there is no light or life in that place.
My dear friends, NIGERIANS and beyond, its a honor for you to have such people around you in your time, this is a good thing to write home about, to teach about, to document and to put in the mind of up coming generations.
RuudVanNisteroy: I grew up in Netherlands and have nothing but love for this country. This is one of the greatest civilizations ever built by visionary leaders. I feel sad anytime anytime I make a return to the homeland.
When the Dutch came to Nigeria, they brought slavery and oppression.

I profoundly appreciate the commitment and zeal with which DMGS old boys over the years have tackled matters concerning the great DMGS. The 'DMGS Old Boys Association' is the most active and effective old boys association. I must applaud us the dignitaries of the DMGS old boys for this immense contribution of the growth and excellence of the prestigious DMGS. The legacy left by the founding father's of this great association, huge resources were sought and ploughed into reconstructing, rehabilitating and rebuilding DMGS which was battered by the civil war.
The path-finders of the association, most of them of blessed memory who advocate, organized and pooled resources from willing old boys, should always be remembered and be seen as inspirers to where we are going today. This, starting from the first President General, late Barr. J. C. Anyaduba, late Dr. J. O. Onyeachonam, late Chief. Arthur Ozumba, late Sir. Engr. Gordon Egwuatu(DMGS class of 1948), Sir. Dr. Tim Menakaya(DMGS class of 1955), Sir. Barr. Goddy Agbasi, Sir. Engr. George Udezue, Sir. Engr. Gibson Okeke(DMGS class of 1965), and the current President General Sir.

Mellon and so many other Dengramite's professors.
I must commend the famous DMGS class of 1957, the only set that took up a plaque for the reconstruction of DMGS building after the Nigeria/Biafra civil war in 1970. DMGS is the ‘primus inter pares’. At 95, DMGS have done great things. We therefore celebrate our dear alma mater and of course, to celebrate us. In the words of my brother, Prof. N. M. Umenweke(DMGS class of 1986), he states that ‘DMGS is no longer an institution, DMGS is now a dynasty’. Honestly, DMGS is more than a school. DMGS, our school of hope. What shall it profit a man who have everything and yet he didn't attend the great DMGS?.
We continue showing the light that is being embed in us. Proceeding to celebrate our centenary, we must have even greater achievements to commemorate. We are Dengramites, we show the light. Thou whose Almighty word, Chaos and darkness heard, And took their flight, Hear us we humbly pray, And where thy gospel day, Sheds not his glorious rays, Let there be light.
osuofia2: Prior to the Year 2015 which the general election took place, The Nigerian atmosphere was filled with shout of Sai baba in every corner of the Country especially in the North, as Pmb was seen as the messiah of Nigeria that will correct the ills going on in the country.
It was a general belief before the emergence of Buhari as the C In C that the day he ascend the No 1 seat in the country that will be the end to all the Challenges facing Nigeria, ranging from Insecurity,Corruption,Job unemployment,epileptic power supply etc.
Contrary to the above, the hope of the common man has been dashed, nothing has improved under his administration. The level of Insecurity now is ten times more than it used to be even the fight against corruption is one sided, the state of the Nation's economy is in abysmal, exchange rate is in the highest since the history of Nigeria as a dollar is now equal to 360 Naira. I guess too much was expected of Buhari.
What Happened To the Sai BAba Slogan?
It has turned to Sai Mama

NwekeUG: IgbereTV reports that famous Islamic leader and scholar, Sheikh Dr. Ahmad Abubakar Gumi has condemned the present state of Insecurity witnessed in the country as a result of Boko Haram.
In the video below, he said that Nigeria has witnessed more death as a result of Boko Haram now than during the government of President Goodluck Jonathan. He blamed the current President, Muhammadu Buhari for Boko Haram attacks. He said Buhari's government is not committed to fighting insurgency as it should.
The Islamic scholar said the way he asked President Jonathan to resign over Boko Haram insurgency is the same way he is now asking President Buhari to resign, even with immediate effect as insecurity is getting worse.
Gumi who could not hide his feelings during the speech felt sorry for speaking against Jonathan.
He admitted that Jonathan's regime was more democratic as it affordable Nigerian citizens and journalists press freedom.
He also praised Jonathan for building 9 universities for the North and over 150 almajiri schools.
At his inauguration on 29 May 2015, Buhari pledged he would defeat Boko Haram and deliver greater security. Even though effort is currently being made to fight the insurgents, the group remains resilient.
