Going back to the basics, one Muslim and one Christian child were looking for a way out of a stalemate and searching for answers on why the maiming and killing by a young Pastor and a young Imam.

Will the Igbo ever rule Nigeria?

Image
The Igbo, one of Nigeria’s three major ethnic groups, are an important power bloc in the nation’s political equation. Yet, the Igbo nation has strangely failed to make its influence count politically as the major ethnic groups schemed to dominate political power at the centre since the country’s return to democratic rule in the Fourth Republic. But the root of the South-East political stagnation dates back to the first decade of Nigeria’s post-independence history.

A look at the political trajectory of the Igbo will reveal how one of Nigeria’s largest and significant ethnic groups has slipped from the commanding height of political dominance it once occupied to the margins of power. After a stint at the top echelons of power in the First and Second Republics with Nnamdi Azikiwe and Alex Ekwueme occupying prime positions, the Igbo, who also had completely dominated post-independence civil service, have had their political influence reduced significantly.
