THE Igbo people of Nigeria : JEWS OF AFRICA
In a White House memo dated Tuesday, January 28, 1969 to President Nixon, former Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger describes the Igbos as “the wandering Jews of West Africa-gifted, aggressive, westernized, at best envied and resented, but mostly despised by their neighbors in the federation”(foreign relations document, volume E-5, documents on Africa 1969-1972).
Kissinger’s description aptly portrays the Christian Igbos and their experience in Nigeria. Over the years, the Igbos have been the victims of numerous massacres, that they have lost count. Most of the violence directed against the Igbos have been state sponsored. One can say that the Igbos knew how to spell “state sponsored terrorism” before the rest of the world did. The state sponsored terrorism directed against the Igbos in 1966, led to the declaration of the Republic of Biafra by the Igbos and subsequent civil war. Over two million Igbos died in the civil war, primarily by starvation. One will not be wrong, if they call the Igbos the “Tutsis” of Nigeria. Today, an Islamic terrorist Conglomerate led by the dreaded Boko Haram are still slaughtering Igbos and other Christians in Northen Nigeria. Igbos have always seen themselves as a bulwark against the spread of Islam to Southern Nigeria, and as a result, a perennial target of Islamic zealots.14729114_1248814718515465_6625566080767608410_n
However, the Igbos are one of the largest and most distinctive of all African ethnic groups. Predominantly found in Southeastern Nigeria, they number about 40 million worldwide, with about 30 million in Nigeria. They constitute about 18% of Nigeria’s population, with significant Igbo populations in Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon and the Ivory Coast. Igbos predominate in five states in Nigeria-Imo, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu and Abia. In three other states- Rivers, Lagos and Delta, they constitute almost 25% of the population.
During the slave trade, Igbo slaves were known to be the most rebellious. Most of the slave rebellions in the United States, Haiti, Jamaica, Belize, Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados and Guyana were led by Igbo slaves. In South Carolina, Igbo slaves were reported to have drowned themselves, rather than be kept as slaves. Today that place is called Ebo Island in commemoration of the slaves who died there. The Gullahs are Igbo. Igbos were one of the 13 African ethnic groups that provided the bulk of the slaves who were brought to the Americas. Majority of the slaves who ended up in Virginia, Alabama, Tennessee, Maryland, Arkansas, Mississippi, South and North Carolina and Georgia were Igbo. An Igbo museum has been built in Virginia to honor the contribution of Igbo slaves to the state. One of the Igbo slaves who was sent to Liberia by the American Colonization Society-Edward Roye- became the fourth president of Liberia. Another Igbo slave, Olaiduah Equiano wrote the famous slave chronicles.14718742_1248814561848814_806994757506969195_n
During the colonial period, the British disliked the Igbos, because of their supposedly uppitiness and argumentativeness. During military service in Burma and India, the pride of Igbo soldiers amongst other African soldiers was proverbial. In the company offices and orderly rooms, the first few words from the White officer speaking to an Igbo soldier was followed by “don’t argue, you! Or “you want to be too clever”, and similar expressions. Their expressive and aggressive mentality which they enjoy in their culture at home, does not always allow them to accept false charges or accusations without responding. The late famous writer, Langston Hughes, observed “the Igbo looks proud because he is bred in a free atmosphere where everyone is equal. He hates to depend on anyone for his life’s need. He does not mind if others look proud. He has much to be proud of in his land. Nature has provided for him. He is strong and able to work or fight. He is well formed. He is generally happy in his society where no ruler overrides his conscience. He likes to advance and he is quick to learn. He likes to give rather than take”.12065629_984646484909827_5599616063704269167_n
Culturally, the Igbos are a very diverse group with different clans, families, subcultures, and subgroups. However, the customs are similar with local varieties. Although there are disagreements about the origins of the Igbos, there is a consensus that they originated from Nri in Anambra State of Nigeria. The language of the Igbos is Igbo or Ibo. It is one of the largest spoken languages in Africa, with Hausa and Yoruba. Igbo speaking people are divided into five geographically based subcultures-Northern Igbo, Western Igbo, Southern Igbo, Eastern Igbo and Northeastern Igbo. Not as urbanized as the Yoruba, they live in multitudinous villages, fragmented into small family groups. They do not have hereditary chiefs like the the Yoruba or Hausa/Fulani. Every Igbo more or less is his or her own master. The Igbos operate the “Umunna System”, which emphasizes the patrilineal heritage, rather than the matrilineal. Some of the important Igbo cities include, Onitsha, Enugu, Umuahia, Aba, Asaba, Abakaliki, Owerri, Nsukka.13731609_1177281702312970_6557271492854520641_n
In commerce, the Igbos are a mobile, vividly industrious people who have spread all over Nigeria and Africa as traders and small merchants. In countries like Gabon, Ivory Coast, Equatorial Guinea, Sierra Leone, Togo, and Gambia, Igbo traders predominate in retail trade. Most Igbos are clannish, despite their individualism and hold closely together in non Igbo communities. They are often very unpopular in the communities they live in, because they push very hard to make money and often dominate the retail business in alien communities. In his book, the Brutality of Nations, Dan Jacobs describes the Igbos “as ambitious, dynamic and progressive people whose education and abilities did not endear them to those among whom they lived. Even during British rule, there were massacres of Igbos in Northern Nigeria-in Jos in 1945 and in Kano in 1953. The Igbos have acquired the sobriquet, Jews of Africa”.14435262_316283915399891_8273129006533531209_o

Education is highly emphasized and given priority in Igboland. Converted to Christianity by Catholic, Anglican and Presbyterian missionaries, they took up self improvement with such enthusiasm, that by the 1960’s, the Igbos had the highest percentage of doctors, lawyers, engineers, physicists, and teachers than any other ethnic group in Africa. Because of the abundant educational talent in Igboland many newly independent African nations recruited them to fill vacancies in their civil service. The first American style university built in Africa was in Igboland-the University of Nigeria at Nsukka. Its founder, Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe was a graduate of Lincoln University in Pennsylvania. The Igbos and the Yorubas are the most educated ethnic group in Africa.
Politically, the Igbos are very effervescent and volatile. According to author Dan Jacobs “for Britain and for the British civil servants who continued to work in the Northern Region, the Igbos have always been a troublesome element in the federation, a people with a democratic tradition who are not easily controlled. Many British were glad to see them out of a central position in the federation, as were those who had driven them back to their homeland and those who now held the civil service and other jobs they had left”. The Igbos had been the most ardent advocates of a united Nigeria. Upon independence in 1960, an Igbo, Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe-American educated- became the first President and Governor General, while another Igbo, Aguiyi Ironsi became the first indigenous military chief. Leadership of most of the elite universities in Nigeria were also occupied by the Igbos.10342995_972753939432415_6570105092291706223_n
Following the military coup of January 1966, which the Igbos were accused of initiating, Aguiyi Ironsi, an Igbo, became President and Supreme Commander of the armed forces. Tensions rose very high in the country resulting in the massacre of Igbos in May 1966. In July 1966.

The Ofala festival is an occasion where the Natives/Indigenes of Anambra join together for dancing, singing, meeting old friends and making new ones. Ofala Festival is a unique colourful tradition that celebrates coronation anniversaries of the kings and commemorate important events in order to create life-giving stories, hope, and a sense of purpose.

The highlight of the festival is the king’s entrance in his royal regalia and decorated crown (okpu ododo), which is announced by traditional trumpeters. Earlier on, the red-cap chiefs (ndiichie) in their traditional attires arrive independently, each accompanied by their village music. They proceed to the king’s throne in order of seniority.14650155_10210459153222757_4626594109790052504_n

OFALA FESTIVAL: Celebration of a People’s Essence
For the people of Onitsha, the commercial nerve centre of Anambra State, a major unifying factor is the Ofala Festival which is celebrated in October of every year.
Ofala symbolises a period of re-emergence of Obi (Igwe), the traditional ruler, from an enforced isolation of community mourning. It also marks the beginning of a new year for the Onitsha people.maxresdefault
It is seen as a period of thanksgiving to God Almighty for bringing to an end the season of starvation and the beginning of harvest which translates to the period of plenty. It is a period the sons and daughters of the trading city come together to celebrate and pay homage to the Obi of Onitsha who is the traditional head of the town and the intermediary between the people and their ancestors. The Obi of Onitsha signifies the essence of the celebration as his emergence from a five-day seclusion before the Ofala indicates that all is well with the town and the people.14666305_10210459154342785_4312347434343881071_n

Nigeria at 56: @ 56 Nigeria’s corporate existence is threatened – Chekwas Okorie

What to cheer
The only thing to cheer is the fact that Nigeria has managed to sur­vive for 56 years by the special grace of God. However, I venture to caution that Ni­geria’s corporate existence has never been so threatened as it is at this time.
What this time calls for are creative social engineering, po­litical sagacity, economic reju­venation and the restructuring of the polity to engender na­tional unity, cohesion, patrio­tism and even development.
Why dilapidated infrastruc­ture in the South East
There are number of reasons for the poor state of infrastruc­ture in the South East geo-political zone of Nigeria. The zone was the main theater of fratricidal
Biafra/Nigeria war that raged for about 30 months,from 1967 to 1970. The physical infra­structure that existed were to­tally destroyed by the rampag­ing Nigerian Army. At the end of the war in January, 1970, the victorious Nigerian govern­ment under General Yakubu Gowon announced a policy of No-Victor-No-Vanquished.
The government followed this up with the policy of Re­construction, Rehabilitation and Reconciliation. The world commended the Gowon Ad­ministration for announcing policies that would facilitate the healing of wounds of the war. The government was ex­pected to enunciate some sort of Marshall Plan to expedi­tiously implement these poli­cies.
Unfortunately the attitude of the Gowon government and subsequent Nigerian govern­ments till this day, have proved conclusively that there was no real intention to rebuild the South East zone. It is disheart­ening that the South East still wears the looks of a war rav­aged area close to 50 years after the war.
Call for Biafra2016_10_01_15307
The utter alienation and ne­glect of the South East zone by subsequent Nigerian govern­ments cast serious doubt in the minds of the people, especially the younger generations who were not born before or dur­ing the war. They ask why they should continue to claim the citizenship of a country that treats them as aliens. Obnox­ious policies on admission to secondary and tertiary edu­cational institutions, lopsided political structure, revenue allocation that short changed the South East/South South and several other unaccept­able policies aimed at halting the development of the area combined to fire the embers of separatism.
It should be recalled that the first recorded public agi­tation by some lgbo youths to exit from Nigeria was in 1999, about 29 years after the end of the war. It is also to be noted that no Nigerian government has ever taken steps to engage the leadership of the agitators in any form of dialogue or sought peaceful resolution of their grievances.
Lack of political leadership in the South East
There is the Igbo saying that a rejected person does not also reject himself. The lamenta­tions of Ndigbo have gone on for too long without sympa­thetic ear from the quarters of the subsequent Nigerian gov­ernments. The problems that confront Ndigbo are political. The tragedy of the situation is that Ndigbo are indifferent to this all important democratic activity. At best Igbo politi­cal leaders eagerly wait for the crumbs that fall from the table of their political compatriots.
The clear absence of po­litical leadership and direction for Ndigbo is the bane of the people. Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe and his Igbo compatriots of the blessed memory did their best during their era. Ndigbo
were well respected, admired and most times envied. Even the politics of the second Re­public barely 9 years after the war was not so bad for Ndigbo. Thanks to Dr Azikiwe’s staying power and political sagacity.
Some of us who are striv­ing to follow the foot steps our political founding fathers are largely misunderstood, ridi­culed and sometimes betrayed by some of the very people we sacrifice for. Maybe our people may begin to listen to the those crying in the wilderness now that President Buhari has for the second time, used inter­national platforms to advise Ndigbo to take advantage of the country’s multi-party de­mocracy to address their situ­ation politically.
Ndigbo and survival
Ndigbo have always sur­vived on self and communal efforts. With the right orien­tation and synergy, the South East geopolitical zone can be­come the main driver of Ni­geria’s development in spite of the hostile federal government disposition towards the area.
