      Hahahahaha! I’m often amused by the emptiness of the noise-making by narrow-minded fellows like you. For folks like you, no matter how much Jonathan ruins Nigeria, he must be allowed to destroy the country simply because he comes from the Niger Delta. Are you for real?

      Well, if you want the rest of Nigeria to come and kill you and your people in the Delta, you wil get exactly that. I am Igbo, and I can assure you that when it starts, Igbo soldiers will fight alongside Nigerian forces against your people.

      It is utterly stoopid of you to threaten that Nigerians cannot vote out a government that they freely voted in. You are not an animal, so stop reasoning like one. Even as an Igbo man, if my brother is in the army, I will not encourage him to fight in support of such retarded mentality.
