Description DRUM FEB 1965 Ð WHY HATE THE IBOS?. NIGED:POLITICS:PERSONALITIES:FEB 1965 Ð Why Hate The Ibos? Ð Nnamdi Azikiwe Ð A painful cry of a member of a persecuted group. ÒBesides the Jews, probably no other linguistic group has suffered so much persecution in history as the Ibo have been obliged to endure in Nigeria.Ó This statement was made by President Nnamdi Azikiwe in 1964. It brought into the open the truth of tribal discrimination in Nigeria. The anti-Ibo feeling that swept through the federation received its main kick from the publication of the 1963 census, its acceptance by the governments of Northern and Western Nigeria and its rejection by both the government and the Ibos of Eastern Nigeria. Minor issues such as the sharing of board appointments between the Eastern and Western members of the NCNC Ð have also gone into fanning its embers. (Photograph by Drum Photographer ©BAHA
