Why Igbos Are Different And Remains The Best Tribe In Nigeria


Nigerians in Sudan are mostly Northerners studying Islamic courses.

There are many airlines owned by Northerners.

The president of Nigeria is a Northerner.

Africa’s richest man is a Northerner.

In spite of all these, it is the chairman of Air Peace, Allen Onyema, an IGBO MAN, who has AGAIN, in his characteristic manner, volunteered to use his planes to bring back Nigerians trapped in war-torn Sudan.

Nigerians from North and South are praising him to high heaven and calling him a patriot.

Ironically, IF the same Allen Onyema decides to run for president of Nigeria tomorrow, these same Nigerians praising him today will tell him that he is IPOB and cannot rule Nigeria. Even the people he brought back will tell him that they would rather vote for one of their own even if he’s on wheelchair.

Whatever you do as an Igbo man in today’s Nigeria, always remember that IGBOPHOBIA is alive and well. In fact, there is a sense in which it can be argued that Igbophobia is the major oxygen sustaining the Nigerian state.

The late literary icon Chinualumogu Albert Achebe was right when he said:

“Nigerians will probably achieve consensus on no other matter than their common resentment of the Igbo.”
