Would he have given in to calls [ ]. No, none of my kids attended the Federal school at New Bussa but many years ago, my better half and I plus another couple went on excursion there and we had a delightful time of it, from buying fish on the bank of the Niger which we personally grilled and had for dinner, to taking in the then growing small town.

I wont tell you lets hug and makeup as igbo and yoruba, but i am open to a good conversation with you about how we can improve nigeria. Aite. Aite!. Am cool with that. Am actually a student of history and it runs deep in my blood i.e history. This implies that I dont really need my parents to pass down the "hate" before I know what really happened.

Yoruba man betray is brothers and so does the reasons for betrayal are material thing suchand lot prayer is one day Yoruba and Ibo will put all differences behind them and learn form past mistakes and move forward because in these two tribes I see intellectuals, progress, development,and lot more.

There is a mistrust in the way the Igbo relate with their Yoruba compatriots. But analysts say the premises are faulty The past 18 months or thereabout have yielded bountifully, elements that have inflamed tempers among the Igbo and Yoruba, as it usually plays out when members of the two major tribes have cause to discuss who did or did not do what in Nigeria’s pre- and post.

Three of my brothers left Nigeria. One left to have his masters degree and work in the UK. One chose to study in the US. The third traveled to Cote d'Ivore to perfect his French while he waited to hear from a job he applied for.

He never heard fro. Little Bee is my book club’s selection for this month. One of our members convinced us that it was an excellent read and she was so right.

The characters were amazingly depicted. The two women were so complex – vulnerable yet strong, passionate yet conflicted.

The book club wanted to ask a few questions prior to our meeting next Tuesday: 1. My Dear Compatriots, NIGERIA’S DECADE. Today marks a new decade. It is a time of hope, optimism and fresh possibilities.

While some compatriots saw the letter as a demonstration of the governor’s zeal to speak truth to power, other critics. The verses that make up each householders' oriki is the content. Another context in Yoruba cultural tradition is Yoruba intellectual culture.

In harmony, oriki is one of the subsets of Yoruba Intellectual Culture. Thus in my book, Yoruba Glorious Secrets, I did a chapter on Yoruba Intellectual Culture.

But not on Oriki though. OPEN LETTER Your Excellency, APPRECIATION On behalf of this coalition and all the peace-loving people of Northern Nigeria, we begin this letter by commending your efforts towards finding a lasting solution to the lingering Igbo-induced crisis that is undoubtedly overheating the polity.

We write this letter to you considering your importance as the head of the Fulani people in Nigeria. You are also the head of Fulani Muslims in Nigeria.

But my message to the filthy Yoruba pig is that, if you don't want to give us your cursed land, we will rear our cattle not only on your farmlands but in your churches.
