The homeland of Kwa speaking people, and the dominant language of the region is Igbo. Southeastern Nigeria is where the oil wealth of Nigeria originates, which has led to environmental degradation of its extreme south in the mangroves, rivers, and swamps facing the Atlantic. Although southeastern Nigeria is often referred to as a region by Nigerians, it stopped being an official region in 1967 after Nigeria switched to states. Currently there are around 10 states that make up what is now unofficially known as the southeast region, or just Eastern Region.

TalkEdit

Although most people in the southeast speak enough English to get by, it is best learning a few words and phrases in Igbo, the dominant language here.
