Living by the sword/cutlass/machete: In line with the blessing pronounced by Ajaka (Yoruba for Isaac) that Esau will live by the sword (Genesis 26:40), the Igbo people are associated with the cutlass and machete with which they frequently issue threats by scratching wildly across the ground, a lot of times hack themselves and into pieces too.

Materialism: Just as Esau did not value his birthright but sold it for something (food) perishable, the Igbo people have acquired a reputation for pursuing perishable wealth by any means necessary, even diabolical, without valuing human life.

Little spiritual understanding: Just as Esau preferred hunting game and other cares of the world (see Book of Jasher) to learning from Abraham how to walk with Yehve, the Igbo people prefer to encourage themselves as mercantile entrepreneurs while boasting about their wealth and wealth schemes. Hardly do they display understanding of the spiritual bases of many aspects of life.

Differences

Cannibalism: While the Igbo acquired, in probably unrivaled gastronomic proportions, a craving for human flesh, commonly available records seem not to indicate such a trait with the Biblical Edomites.

The Secret Relationship between Edo and Igbo

Since the Igbo nation was excised from the Edo kingdom, an examination of the relationship between them should reveal continuous traits.

Similarities

Fondness for red: Both groups have retained Esau’s innate attraction for the red colour which is manifested today in their traditional attires (Isaiah 63:1-2). The largest oil palm plantations established for the purpose of extracting the reddish palm oil are found in the regions of the Igbo homeland, Edo kingdom and other breakaway kingdoms like the Urhobo and Isoko.

Prostitution: Many kingdoms that descended from Edo are located southward in DeIta State and the women therefrom have been regarded as very pretty and easy to bed. Also, it is well known that mothers from Edo prostitute their daughters overseas, especially to Italy, perhaps accounting for the violent crimes like armed robberies and kidnappings in that kingdom (see Leviticus 19:29). With the Igbo it is brazen as they set up brothels in Lagos and other parts of Yorubaland while migrating westward to that region in pursuit of wealth. Their homeland is notorious for baby factories where teenage girls are impregnated and already pregnant teenagers reside, with both eventually selling their babies; some babies are stolen at birth while their mothers are deceived into thinking they had stillbirths. Note also that prostitution is also carried out when mothers encourage their daughters to use the quantity of vanity gifts, both material and perishable from suitors to gauge love and lust. Women all over southern Nigeria including Yoruba, Igbo and Edo are guilty of such.

Differences

Spiritual vs. materialistic: The Edo people have a reputation for taking their orisha traditions seriously of which they engage in vibrant discussions. The Igbo focus on wealth acquisition strategies.

Skin texture: The Edo are not as hairy as the Igbo and have not retained the reddish skin tone of Esau.

Clannish vs. kingship: The Edo people have high esteem for their Oba (royal father) and royal institution. The average Igbo man is said to see himself as a king, hence they are clannish right down to the family unit.

Adulteration vs. honesty: The Igbo people are very notorious for adulterating consumer goods without regard for human life. They are a mercantile people who have established international networks for importing various items into Nigeria, thus it is easy to point fingers at them concerning the entry of fake/adulterated and contraband products. For instance, it is common knowledge that they are almost single-handedly responsible for the near ubiquitous presence of fake pharmaceutical drugs, and that they are the source of adulterated palm oil which is a staple commodity in Nigeria. Edo people are not known to be associated with such. Nevertheless, the Edo have in recent times been coming up with a craftily fabricated story of the origin of Oduduwa, the Yoruba progenitor. The story heftily defies logic.

Slavery: The Edo people resisted overtures from the Amorites (Europeans/colonial masters) to sell their people into trans-Atlantic slavery for which the latter punished the former by stealing Edo artifacts and almost destroying their kingdom. The Igbo people sold themselves into the hands of the Amorites using their kidnapping expertise.

Masculine vs. feminine women: Edo women, unlike their Igbo counterparts, are not known to have manly biceps, shoulders and calves, and hairy faces.

The Secret Relationship between Yoruba and Igbo

Since the British/Amorite colonial masters mischievously amalgamated Nigeria together, thus placing many nations like the Yoruba (Israel), Edo (Edom), Hausa and Kanem-Borno (Assyrians), Igbo (Edom), Ijaw, Tiv, Koma, etc. within the same shared boundaries, the Igbo have faithfully expressed the same pattern of ancient hatred described in the books of Jasher and Obadiah toward the Yoruba.

Similarities

Descendants of Abraham and Isaac: Esau and Jacob are sons of Isaac who is son of Abraham. Since the Igbo are Esau’s descendants and the Yoruba are Jacobs it is obvious that they are brothers. However Yehve (God Most High) chose Jacob and his descendants (Genesis 28:10-17).

Differences

Spiritual vs. materialistic: While the Igbo boast continually about their wealth acquisition profiles and travel round the world even to far-flung lands in pursuit of money, the Yoruba are reputed for their rich spiritual tradition a.k.a. Ifa (the living oracles of God Most High) with an increasing number of those in the diaspora returning to Ile-Ifẹ.Living by the sword/cutlass/machete: In line with the blessing pronounced by Ajaka (Yoruba for Isaac) that Esau will live by the sword (Genesis 26:40), the Igbo people are associated with the cutlass and machete with which they frequently issue threats by scratching wildly across the ground, a lot of times hack themselves and into pieces too.

And what is your point exactly?NIGERIANS in general have achieved in sooo many things! why must you seperate it into igbos? you talk of all these igbo ppl doing great things, well what have YOU done?

 Nnamdi  Azikiwe was the first Nigerian president - True. But that was a ceremonial post with the powers resting with the Premier who was a northerner. And Nigeria's prosperity began to decrease since he became president and Nigeria became independent. As well as all the other Nigerian presidents that contributed in making Nigeria a failed country. We have yet to have a president that will make this country prosper. Has Chinua Achebe won a Nobel Prize yet? No. Wole Soyinka has. Also, who was Nigeria's first millitary dictator (in otherwords who led to Nigeria's demise)? Last time i checked he was supposed to be Igbo. 
  
the Yorubas have excelled generally.
the Igbos have excelled too.
the Edos, idomas,tiv and igala, etc too are doing well.
the hausas are not left out.
the ijawssss,itsekiris,urhobos and binis are doing well.

the big question is ;WHAT AM I DOING NOW?
WHAT HAVE I ACHEIVED?

Nnamdi Azikiwe and popularly known as Zik was one of the leading figures of modern Nigerian nationalism who became the first President of Nigeria after Nigeria secured its independence from the United Kingdom on 1 October 1960 holding the presidency throughout the Nigerian First Republic.

Achebe is a brilliant writer.To be honest I believe his books are incontrovertibly the best for mainstream readers in Nigeria. Especially when one considers Wole Soyinka's style and his insistence that he doesn't write for all.Making go get another book one of his favorite mantras.There are so many good writers around the world,and I don't think I can conveniently say that Achebe is better than all past winners of the prize.You may want to say that if Soyinka has won the prize Achebe should also have won, but before you try to use this argument to recuse the panel, I will like to bring to your notice that Soyinka mostly writes plays, and Achebe writes novels.Plays are believed to be a tad difficult when compared with other written literary works.

During the Congo Crisis of the 1960s,the United Nations Secretary-General,Dag Hammarskjöld, appealed to the Nigerian government to send troops to Congo. Lieutenant Colonel Ironsi led the 5th battalion to the Kivu and Leopoldville provinces of Congo.His unit proved integral to the peacekeeping effort, and he was soon appointed the Force Commander of the United Nations Operation in the Congo.

Major-General Johnson Aguiyi-Ironsi then rose from the ashes of the First Republic to become the country's first military Head of State when Acting President Nwafor Orizu officially surrendered power to the military.Ironsi is the first Major-General in nigeria .while Chief of Staff, Nigerian Defence Forces then are

Chief of Staff, Nigerian Defence Forces Brigadier Babafemi Ogundipe 1966

Chief of Staff, Army  Lt-Colonel Yakubu Gowon

Military Governor of Eastern Region Lt-Colonel Chukwuemeka Ojukwu

Military Governor of Western Region Lt-Colonel Adekunle Fajuyi

Military Governor of Mid-west Region Lt-Colonel David Ejoor

Military Governor of Northern Region Lt-Colonel Hassan Katsina

Yes every tribe contribute for the growing of economy,but will need Igbo president to move nation forward.When an Igbo president rebuilds Nigeria, Nigeria will still thwart his history. Nigeria will make the history look as if a northern or western minister in the Igbo president’s cabinet did the job. Ekwueme resisted Abacha’s terror with his G17 group. That was at a time when nobody dared challenge Abacha. This group later became the political party called PDP. Yet Nigerian denied Ekwueme the presidential ticket. Today nobody recognises that this Igbo man risked his life under Abacha in order to bring a sense of belonging back to governance in Nigeria. Nigeria needs Igbo presidency now to rebuild all the cracks on the walls of Nigeria .

Cure for HIV/AIDS: UNIBEN denounces Prof Ibeh’s claim
 ---—AS controversy continues to trail the alleged discovery of a drug for the cure of HIV/AIDS by the Dean of School of Basic Medical Sciences of the University of Benin, Prof. Isaiah Ibeh, the authorities of the institution, yesterday, in Benin, faulted the dean’s claims.
 
Prof. Ibeh had, in a recent interview, hinted of the discovery of an oral drug made from plants extraction in Nigeria for the possible cure of the pandemic HIV/AIDS.
 
Reacting to Prof. Ibeh’s claim during an interaction with newsmen who were at the university to authenticate the alleged discovery, Provost, College of Medical Sciences of the University, Prof. Vincent Iyawe, said the institution was not in agreement with Prof. Ibeh’s claim for now, alleging that the University was, “not carried along” in the research.
 
He said: “The School would like to take credit for a break- through, but it cannot align with the breakthrough because the College was not consulted, the University was not consulted, and he did not carry anybody along.
 
“There are protocols and procedures. Going from stage to stage, we ought to give it clinical trials, by taking it to the Federal Ministry of Health to do clinical trials and many other things involved. We also needed to take it to National Agency for Food, Drug Administration and Control, NAFDAC, and many other things had to be done before you come out with your claims, in addition to taking it to World Health Organisation.”
 
He said all the university was doing was to protect Prof. Ibeh and the integrity of the institution.




Again l think Prof didn't trust his colleagues. Probably he thought they ll outsmart him and go public b4 him or the authority may claim ownership of the discovery. Well l am just thinking of the likely reason while Prof lbeh chose to go it alone. Abi na lbo man.

My sister tell them ,Igbos are great and the real pillars of this nation.No igbo no Nigeria that's why they refuse Biafra to go,even professor Isaiah Ibeh in topic is an Igbo man.

Half of what this commenter attributed to Igbo people is trash. The Igbos do not lead the movie industry nor did the invent it. The fact that it is saturated by Igbo's does not mean they lead it or invented it.
Regarding Biafra, the Igbo's had outside help from other countries as well and the main reason the war went on as long as it did was because the Nigerian army did not cut off their supplies/access soon enough. Your leader did not think things through properly before embarking on a "war" that would wipe out roughly a million of his people. Most people died as a result of starvation, malnutrition etc than from battles. On the literary front, I don't see any Nobel Laureates from Igbo land. I agree the Igbos areformidable businessmen but that is because they lay so much emphasis on money over and above everything else including education. "Igbos are not lazy parasites" 419ers and drug traffickers are predominantly Igbo too.

I can go on and on but I won't.

How dare you talk to the pillars of Nigeria like that, the best tribe ever, U foolish citizen and enemy of progress of igbo people. you are only being jealousy and i pity u cos he who sees light and call it dark shall remain in dark all his life.

For your Info Igbos invented Nollywood, it wasnt Hubert Ogunde if is where you are heading to. Let me explain;  The theatre and television stations were the medium that was used by a lot of theatre artists like Herbert Ogunde and Ola Balogun amongst of few others (that includes igbos) all made movies that were shown in the few theatres that existed during the 1970's and 1980's. These films include "Jaiyesimi", "Aiye" and "Taxi-Driver", these were all done in Yoruba, the movies done in English prior to Nollywood include "Bisi Daughter of The River" and Prof. Wole Soyinka's "Blues For A Prodigal" amongst a few others.
For some reason a comic actor, Mr.Okpuru Anyanwu, was finding it difficult to get his work shown on the TV stations in Anambra State of Nigeria, out of frustration, he shot his episodes on video and sold them on a weekly basis, to the Igbo speaking populace of the East. Anyanwu was actually onto something great here, as his video's became very popular and his growing audience eagerly waited with anticipation for the next video just as we can't wait for the next episode of our favourite soaps, dramas or comedies, be it "Dr Who", "Friends", "Ugly Betty" or "Desperate Housewives".
When Kenneth Nnebue saw the success of Anyanwu he took it a step futher and produced "Living In Bondage" which unlike Anyanwu's videos, was done in English. "Living In Bondage" went nationwide and was an instant hit. Others caught on to this model and as it caught fire Nollywood was born.
you can see that Nollywood came into existence through igbos, yoruba's has there own movies too and kallywood which is hausa's . Mind the 419ers are all Yoruba's, thief thief are all hausa's, just few igbo's do drugs.
YOU SEE WHY I CALL U FOOLISH, COS I REALISED YOU JUST CAME HERE TO RUN YOUR DIRTY MOUTH.
You're the only foolish person here. "Pillars of Nigeria", "best tribe ever" mtcheeew whatever with the silly egotism. I'm not an enemy of progress amongst anybody. And I'm not jealous nor do I need to be jealous. Just speaking the truth you can't seem to handle. Enemy of progress from the Igbos? NIGERIANS in general from various tribes have all excelled in many things. Some have done things Igbos havnt achieved. What makes Igbos Nigeria's backbone? Are Igbos making Nigeria prosper/develop? Uhh... NO. See our country today. Is it good? Nigeria has no backbone. IMO. Evil corrupt politicians from various tribes including Igbos looting money everyday. How is Igbos any diff. from all the other tribes... All tribes esp. Igbos have contributed in staining Naija's image. 
And as for Nollywood, I can see how dulll u aree.u must be talkin out ignorance even ur so called ppl know the truth. Who told u nollywood was started by Igbos..for ur info nollywood started in 92 with living in bondage film..yoruba started what we now called nollywood .respect to our fathers. Ogunde.Ola balogun, ade love, etc. Hubert Ogunde was the one, founder/pioneer of Nollywood. (Search him on google if you must) He even went ahead to build a film studio in ogun state. every other person you name came after him or only did television. He was the film industry in Nigeria at the time. The other type of films nigerian had option to were india or china films. Can you imagine black man going to cinema to watch india film. He had film like aiye. I think it is fair to credit others too - Oga Bello, Baba Sala, Aluwe, Ray Eyiwunmi and his group, Isho Pepper (Ishola Ogunshola) etc. Those are the people who cleared the path to what is now Nollywood. Like it or not. And Mind YOU 419ers and are not "all" Yorubas. There's some Igbos in the pot too. And your just fooling yourself with that your dry mouth when you said "just a few Igbos do drugs"

You get it all wrong because you don't know the difference between theater productions cinema .such as Ola Balogun and Hubert Ogunde in the 1960s, but they were frustrated by the high cost of film production. However, television broadcasting in Nigeria began in the 1960s and received much government support in its early years. By the mid-1980s every state had its own broadcasting station. Law limited foreign television content so producers in Lagos began televising local popular theater productions. Many of these were circulated on video as well, and a small scale informal video movie trade developed.

Ogunde.Ola balogun and Hubert Ogunde in Lagos began televising local popular theater productions and cinema in the 1960s not nollywood for your information.

The release of the box-office movie Living in Bondage in 1992 by NEK Video Links owned by Kenneth Nnebue in the eastern city of Onitsha set the stage for Nollywood as it is known today.The story goes that Kenneth Nnebue had an excess number of imported video cassettes which he then used to shoot the first film.The huge success of this film set the pace for others to produce other films or home videos. Through the business instincts and ethnic links of the Igbo and their dominance of distribution in major cities across Nigeria, home videos began to reach people across the country. Nollywood exploded into a booming industry that pushed foreign media off the shelves, an industry now marketed all over Africa and the rest of the world.The use of English rather than local languages served to expand the market and aggressive marketing using posters, trailers, and television advertising also played a role in Nollywood's success.
