The yoruba people are one of the major ethnic group in nigeria. .i am an igbo and i hate to admit this. Yorubas rule nigeria. Before you begin to attack me,let me outline my reason.
Yorubas are most wealthy ; take a look at the top richest nigerian llist,about 50 percent are nigerians in the list are yorubas.the richest black woman is also a yoruba.
YORUBAS ARE MOST KNOWLEDGEABLE: yorubas rule the nation academically. The top universities are located in that region of country. Yorubas have many ptofessors. They dominate the legal world boasting of manu SAN.
YORUBAS RULE SPIRITUALLY
IN nigeria,yoruba rule the spiritual kinggdom. The highest juju factory in nigeria is in yoruba land. You cant watch a nigerian film without any reference of herbalist.the average yoruba man has protective charms wherever
Yorubas also rule the protestant church. Living faith,deeper life,mountain of fire etc are headed by yoruba men.
Yorubas are most tolerant :in a typical yoruba home, yyou can find a muslim man married to christian woman. Their children also tend to mmarry from other tribes especially from nothern nigeria.
Yorubas are most appreciative
render a selfless service to a yoruba man e.g pust their car .and they shower blessings on you,your family,
They cebrate small issues from promotion to child first position.they always give testimony in church.
They dont forget their culture
any plant without root is as good as dead. Recently, Ifa was introduced as a subject in yoruba state. They already boast of a scholar prof Abimbola ,prof of ifa studies.
The yoruba film industry still makes name.
HAVING GIVING MY REASONS, I WANT TO STRESS THAT OTHER ETHNIC GROOUPS CAN LEARN FROM YORUBAS SO AS TO IMPROVE NIGERIA . THE HAUSAS SHOULD TAKE EDUCATION SERIOUSLY, IGBOS SHOULD SSTOP BURNING THEIR SHRINES. .IBIBIOS SHOULD LOOK INTO THEIR ENTERTAINMENT SECTOR. FULANIS SHOULD LEARN TO TOLERATE OTHER RELIGION.
