Its funny how people believe that Nigeria dividing up along tribal lines will make things better.

This incident has shown us all the same petty "dislike" of each other will continue unchecked.

Good luck to those proposing November 5th as the day Biafra will be reborn!!!!

If the survey had portrayed Nigeria in a good light, would Dr Reuben Abati be complaining?Huh?  I don't think so.

But then of course when nasty things are said about you or your friends or one's country one is expected to stand up and defend them even when we  see some truth however small in such findings.  No one likes to look bad to the rest of the world!!!!

However our leaders should sit down and try to determine what led to the results portraying Nigeria as such. They should seek and ask the opinions of ordinary Nigerians and determine how they see the findings.

Sometimes surveys (however "unpatriotic" we may find them) can in a way open our eyes to things that have been overlooked and need improvement.

So Dr R Abati do not throw away (or file in your out tray) their findings just yet, take a breather, be honest and determine wheteher we can learn anything from it.

A survey found the The London Metropolitan Police institutionally racist.  Though there is still a lot of work to be done, if they had dismissed the findings and not worked in improving relations and understanding of ethnic minorities,  racial stereotyping would continue unabated.

Have a nice day.

I do not believe this was written by a black woman.

It is more likely written by someone (not an African) trying to stir up sentiments and get real black people offended.


This same person will then go on to collect these comments made on Naijapals and use them to conduct a study.


It has happened before.

The title of his "find" will most probably be, "The Thinking of Black People." A 10 Year Study Across the Continent.

So beware of your comments here.

Racism!     Tribalism!

What's the difference?

Yorubas hate the Igbos, Igbos hate the Hausa, Efik hate the Ijaw, Kuje hate the Fulani and so on.


When will it end???

I disagree with the findings.


The highest percentage of skin lightening cream users can be found amongst the Asian population.


And that's a fact.

It is wrong to condemn Dr N Azikiwe because he wanted peace to reign in Nigeria.

You can say whatever nasty things you want to say against him but deep down the vast majority of Nigerians are corrupt. And this is affecting our existence as a nation and not the fact we are of different tribes.  There are other countries in the world where different tribes and tongues that co exist peacefully and are doing well.

A question that I would like answered sincerely is, do you really think there will be peace and progress if Nigeria is to divide into tribes/clans/homesteads?

I definitely do not think so!

I do not see the people of the riverine areas leaving the Igbo to take control of the oil or it's wealth.

It's like asking for peace between the people of Awka and Amawbia in Anambra state!!!

Agbani, all the "promises" you made when you won the title of "Miss World," how many did you actually carry out?

I remember you saying something about the plight of African children and how you will be "hands on" to offer financial support, making the world aware of their plight blah, blah, blah! It appears they were all empty promises made in the euphoria of the moment!


And now you want to marry a politician. You will do well together. One day your "husband" may become governor (or whatever else is there for the taking). Meaning, more promises in the euphoria of the moment (winning an election) and the help/support never coming.

I wish you both the best of luck.

Which country has the most beautiful women in the world?

It's hard to tell when all published photographs are air brushed!!!!

However if I am to hazard a guess and in my opinion, I would say the Ethiopians.

If Africa had stepped forward and said the world must accept homosexual ism and Lesbianism and other transgenders because that is what WE, the Africans  ARE and WANT, the Europeans would have built a tall wall to keep us out of their land and then gone onto use all types of derogatory language to describe us.

Just as they made us the scapegoat when AIDS became prevalent and it was said the disease was "discovered" in Africa and therefore "spread" by Africans. I can remember the discrimination that went on then. Once you were black you had AIDS!

Now because the Europeans have discovered they cannot hide the fact that many people including prominent people in society in England (and other European countries) live the life style, the British government is threatening to cut off aid to African nations unless we accept homosexuals, lesbians and their way of life. It has suddenly became "how God made them," "freedom of speech," "a free world," "do not discriminate," blah, blah blah!!!!

African leaders should not bow to their ways of life. We should love all people with different life styles but should not be forced into accepting men having sexual relationships with another man or a woman having a sexual relationship with another woman.

There are always people in the world who are willing to help the needy in the world without their government support.

I can't wait for the day a Yoruba man/lady becomes a councillor in an Eastern state or an Igbo man/lady becomes a councillor in a Yoruba state. Or even a Hausa man/lady becoming a councillor in, for example, Nnewi!!!!

I know it won't be happening anytime soon!!

Congratulations to Ms Anolue.

Her Nigeria passport gave her away!!! And with this it will only get worse for us.

Did she pick up her consignment in Ethiopia or did she get through Nigeria airport like "a big madam?"

I also find the headline "breaking a world record" as irrelevant!

It should read "Nigeria let down again!"
