Imo State Governor, Emeka Ihedioha, has called on Igbos, to unite as a people and find a common umbrella under Ohaneze.
In his address at the 40th Ahiajoku lecture series, in Owerri, he said “we must sink our differences and pool our resources and talents together.
” It is my considered opinion, therefore, that everybody can find a suitable place under the leadership of Ohaneze, in our pursuit of Igbo renaissances.
He called on Igbos to forge a new sense of brotherhood rooted in forgiveness and mutual respect
” As a people, the South East and South South regions we must recreate that sense of enterprise that made the old Eastern Region the fastest growing economy in the world at the immediate past independence era
He said his vision for Imo State is to become one of the top three most developed economies in Nigeria by 2025 and ranked within Africa’s top ten economies by 2030.
Governor Ihedioha noted that the Ahiajoku festival “is intended to provide a veritable platform for defining the core tenets of Igbo culture in relation to the larger corpus of Nigerian culture, Africa and world civilization. It also seems to provoke and encourage scholars to undertake relevant researches on Igbo culture in relation to the Igbo world view and overall human development
