Ohanaeze Ndigbo charts new Course for Igbos, sets up Planning and Strategy Committee

by on June 27, 2017

The leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the apex socio-cul­tural organization of the Ig­bos, at the weekend set up a planning and strategy committee to define a new eco­nomic and socio political agenda for the Igbos.

The new agenda is meant to rediscover the lost values of Ndigbo and chart a new course for the Igbo race – to suit the prevailing socio-economic and political real­ities in Nigeria today and the world at large.

The President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo, gave these in­dications in Enugu yesterday while constituting the Committee.

In his address at the event, Chief Nwodo lamented that the organisation was at a loss on the way forward for the Igbo race, amidst the Quit Notice served by Arewa Youths on the Igbos to leave the Northern parts of the coun­try by October 1.

Nwodo said Ohanaeze was finding it extremely hard to draw a conclusion between the demand for an independent state of Biafra and the growing call for restructuring, as also be­ing canvassed by some sections of Igbos, as the best option for Ndigbo.

He stressed that the strate­gy and planning committee that was set up has the onerous task to consult widely and advice the leadership of the organisa­tion on the way forward.

The strategy and planning committee is under the head­ship of Professor Charles Solu­do, a former governor of Cen­tral Bank of Nigeria [CBN]. The Committee is made up of about 100 eminent sons and daugh­ters of Igboland, with sterling qualities, who have proved themselves in their various fields of human endeavour.

The leader of the team, Pro­fessor Soludo, assured the or­ganization that the Committee will consult widely within and outside the committee so as to arrive at the best and popular wish of Ndigbo.

    We stand on BIAFRA.

    BIAFRA existed as far back as 15th/16th centuries before the british experiments and contraption called Nigeria.
