We Will Use The One Week Igbo Day Celebration To Pray To God On Biafra Struggle, Marginalization Of Igbos -- Ohaneze Ndigbo
The pan-Igbo highest social-political and cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo plans to seek God’s intervention in the present marginalization and intense difficulties the Igbo are at present facing in Nigeria in the 2017 Igbo Day celebration.
The National Organising Committee chairman for the event, Dr. Greg Ibe, revealed this plan together with his committee’s timetable for the glamorous event when he briefed World Press at Enugu, yesterday, Monday.
Dr. Ibe hinted said: “Against the backdrop of the current challenges of Ndigbo and as a way of seeking divine solutions to these problems, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has decided to use the annual Igbo Day celebration for 2017 to mobilise Igbo across the globe to pray and seek the face of God for Nigeria and Ndigbo in particular.
“All Igbo in Nigeria and in the diaspora are enjoined to be actively involved in the programme.”
The event will last for one week.
