When last did you visit your village? How often do you visit your home town? I grew up partly in the villa.

People who haven't visited their villages in a while may have their own personal reasons, these reasons don't have to be shared with strangers on a discussion board.

Assumptions such as yours are also pretty weak-kneed too.

Lol.

I left my village when I was a kid in 1995 after my grandma died. That was when my mum came for me and we started living together. And that was the last time i saw the place I once called home. I guess it's because there's no longer anything to hold on to.

@Ibime,igbos visit more because of their older folks are in the village while the yorubas especially those in lagos dont visit much because most of their elderly folks are in the cities,do you also know that alot of yoruba people don't take their people home for burial rites?

I noticed that Yorubas do not visit their villages as often as Ibo's or Ijaws. Is there any reason?
