See the conversation below;
A: The finest Nigerian girls are from the East. That's why in most beauty pageants majority of the contestants are Igbo girls, and most times the winners are from the East.
B: That's a lie. I agree that many contestants come from the East but that's because unlike young women from other parts of Nigeria, Igbo girls are more concerned with trivial and superficial things like beauty contests. Most girls from other parts are more focused on academics and building a career, Igbo girls would rather go for beauty contests and look for rich men.
A: That's a big lie, Igbo girls are just as smart and driven as girls from other parts, it's because of the large population of beautiful Igbo girls that sometimes they dominate beauty contests. Ask any Nigerian and they will tell you Igbo girls are the finest, that's the only reason. They're still just as smart and driven as others.
B: If that's the case how do you explain that universities in the East have very few female professors, but when you go to the West there are ten times more female professors, even very young ones, yet in some universities in the East you won't find one female professor? That's because Igbos are more concerned with other things like pageants and beauty contests, their ambitions are limited and that's why they flood beauty contests.
A: I disagree.
Have you ever heard a conversation similar to the one above? Why do you think Igbos populate Nigerian beauty contests to a good extent; do you think it's because the prettiest girls in Nigeria hail from the East, or do you think it's because they are less ambitious and their pursuits are much 'smaller' than those of young women from other parts?
I'm not trying to spark any tribal debates, what's your opinion?
