  1. THIS IS AMAZING!! THIS WEBSITE IS ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!! THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT THE IGBO NEED TO DO IN ORDER TO ESTABLISH THEMSELVES AS AN IMPORTANT PART O NIGERIA. SINCE WE ALREADY HAVE ESTABLISHED OURSELVES ECONOMICALLY, WE MUST NOW MAKE STRIVES TO PROMOTE IGBO CUSTOMS,HERITAGE, AND CULTURE THROUGH THE PUSH FOR THE CENTRALIZATION OF THE IGBO. WE MUST DO THAT THROUGH ENCOURAGING IGBO BUSINESS OWNERS TO BRING THEIR BUSINESSES BACK IGBOLAND, ESTABLISH THE ECONOMY OF IGBOLAND, INCORPORATE THE LANGUAGE AND HISTORY INTO ACADEMIA, EXTENSIVELY IMPLEMENT NSIBIRI AS THE De FACTO WRITING SYSTEM, AND DEMAND THE ESTABLISHMENT OF IGBOLAND AS A POLITICALLY AUTONOMOUS REGION. BY DOING SO, THIS WILL REINFORCE THE COLLECTIVE IDENTITY OF THE IGBO AS A PEOPLE. THIS WILL ALSO SAFEGUARD OUR FUTURE POLITICALLY AS WELL, FOR WE WILL BE A FORCE TO RECKON WITH.

  3. Too bad Nigerians are so divided, but rest well that this writing script will not be forgotten since I'm planning to have this introduced for the Shona people of Zimbabwe. We are fortunate enough to be above 80% in majority, and I'm determined to introduce it to my people.

    I can see Nsibidi's heritage continuing with the Shona regardless of whether Igboland is born or not.

    By the way, all Africans come from Nigeria, the is a fact ignored a lot.

  4. Why are these symbols written ontop of each other?

  5. They are written atop each other to form a compound character.
