  • It has always been the Igbos

The British didnโ€™t deem it fit to give power to the Igbos because they consider us uppity, and cannot be controlled. Also, because of the leading role Zik played for the Nigerian independence and for African liberation, the Igbo people have not been in the good book of the British government.

The colonialists perceived us as โ€œThe ambitious and clever Igbo people โ€ just because they preferred as their successors those that would continue to depend on them and those they would easily manipulate, a stooge of colonial power. The Hausa/Fulani see the Igbos as threat and a people who canโ€™t be allowed a breathing space, while others see us as proud people.

We have been unfortunate in our relationship with other people in Nigeria. We have been misunderstood, misrepresented and mismanaged.ย Our energy and enterprise were misunderstood over ambition. our will to venture out and turn adversity to advantage misrepresented as attempts at domination.

Bitterness against the Igbos is based on sheer resentment of our commercial success. The Igbos were despised and envied for their achievements and acquisitiveness. Our gifts of hard work, inventiveness and dedication have been purposely mismanaged and not taken advantage of by Nigeria.

Since we have been regarded as too pushy, too industrious and too wander lust to be afforded equal treatment, isnโ€™t it better they allow us to go peacefully?

Nigeria is actually not the only place the Igbos are found in their numbers. There is a popular maxim that says: wherever you donโ€™t see the Igbos, it means that there is no life there.

What we have always asked for is EQUAL RIGHTS AND JUSTICE. A level playing ground for all of us.

An Igbo kid will need a 250 cutoff mark to gain admission into unity schools, while Hausa/Fulani kid of the same age or even older will only need 20 for same admission in the same school.(Agbakoba has just won the FG on uniform cut off mark for the students, irrespective of state and gender. Letโ€™s see if it will be implemented).
