@oziomatv - I know this was directed at ify but . . . There is no way the nation will ever split - all the oil is in Niger-Delta so lets put that aside for one second. If we are to stay together as one nation with one rule (whether we should be together or not), I think we have to havbe at least some love for other tribes, don't you think so?

I know some Yoruba guys who treat Igbo women really well and some Igbo guys who treat other tribes really well with no stabs in the back. Yes there probably are problems at times and things don't work out for various reasons even the cultural reasons you may be highlighting but everyone's case is difference please. There is no way biafra will ever come to be whether it is the right thing or not - unless they find oil in hausa land. So how do we make Nigeria better if all the tribes are fragmented? Inter-tribal relationships can nsometimes be a blessing to Nigeria in disguise - maybe it fosters understanding and appreciation!

Apart from Lagos, which other Yoruba state is better than Enugu and other Igbo States? Is it Ibadan? The dirtiest and most unplanned city in the world? Or Ekiti or Iseyin, or Ijebu or Ogbomosho? Lagos is not really a typical Yoruba state as it is for everyone, with at least 35 % Igbo population. Remove Lagos and the Yorubas are finished.

@oziomatv - please my brother, insulting a whole tribe is not the answer to one guys ignorance. Many yorubas, hausa etc etc are fantastic people and would even miss certain Igbos if they left Lagos.

Oziomatv, Nwanne don't fall into that trap . The person calling SE states backward and slow is speaking for himself and not his ethnic group. You can pick a bone with him without dragging his people inside, since they were not there when he made the derogatory comments.

@davidif - please oh don't insult Igbos! It is uncalled for. People in power abuse their positions in those areas and non-Igbo areas also. Shouldn't the president enquire why certain areas are not developing - or don't you think it is because they don't care?

english, lebanese, chinese, indians all of them are filling lagos yet it is the Igbo one that is doing you - the former state capital will always be like that it is no longer just a Yoruba town, most wont even consider it that. Go to london and see how many races are there - it is the same in most capitals and because lagos was former capital it MUST be so. Some people carry on like having Igbos around you is the problem with Nigeria - why? Have Igbos not suffered themselves? We are all suffering together man so lighten up!

As the Jews go ahead having their descendants in all parts of the world making progress and success that's how the Igbos will be.

in the white world we have children from mixed race bearing Igbo surnames they will soon grow up to participate in politics

then there we start ruling the world not only Lagos and Nigeria.

We're the only Black tribe that can challenge the whites in both ways.

NDU NDI IGBO.

@ WENDYMANDA I get nothing against you am just joking

We're not contesting for governorship in Lagos rather we'll appoint governor in Lagos

we are not taking over Lagos we're owning Lagos and turn it to Igbo speaking state.

        just give us 10years Lagos will be a full Igboland.

             NDU NDI IGBO.

Forget that gist, I'd rather say the "Hausas" are seriously taking over Lagos NOW, A larger percentage of them are involve in "Okada" business, Check out the Sweet/Gum sellers on traffic, most of them now are Hausas, beggars etc!
