“The Igbos Find It Hard To Absorb Any History That Does Not Massage Their Ego” – Reno Omokri

“…Igbos are by far too sensitive for an objective history. No matter what I write about the history of the Yoruba, Hausa, and Fulani, even if it is not flattering, they will accept it, as long as it is true.

“I can’t kill myself because I am a scholar. I will only write about the history of people who understand that history has both positive and negative sides.

“In my opinion, and remember, I can be wrong, the Igbo, as people, find it hard to absorb any history that does not massage their ego, though, there are exceptions, but those exceptions are not enough to form a critical mass. And until there is a critical mass of such people, any scholar would be well advised to leave well enough.

“I wrote a lot about history in my upcoming book, but I deleted everything that had to do with the Igbo. I can not kill myself and leave my beautiful wife, God forbid”.
