NDI IGBO ASKED TO THINK HOME
By: Ekwi Ajide
One time civilian governor of Anambra State, Chief Chukwuemeka Ezeife, has asked Ndi Igbo the world over to ensure that the home base is built up with a view to making it the biggest economic unit.
The former governor stated this when a group from the Anambra State Akulueuno partners, Rotech Energy Services paid him a courtesy visit at his residence in Abuja.
Chief Ezeife was full of praises for the Obiano led administration in Anambra State for improving on his “Think home philosophy”.
Chief Ezeife, is of the opinion that non realisation of the Akulueuno dream of the present state administration will spell doom especially in this time when there is tension in all fronts. He called on all Igbos, especially ndi Anambra to bring home their wealth so as to create jobs for the teaming youths of the state, develop the it further and as well put the state in the lime light.
He encouraged them to partner the state government just like Rotech group, saying that such partnerships have no constraints in providing for the people and making the commodity easier for the people.
In her remarks, the chairperson, Igbo Oriental Think Tank, Lady Olive Onwualu, said it is a global organization, and encompasses Igbo people and allies of ndi igbo across the globe. Lady Onwualu, from Onitsha, opined that the advantages of Akulue uno cannot be overemphasized as it is now necessary for all to bring back some of their wealth home so as to enhance the growth of the state.
For the traditional ruler of Isiagu and Eze Ndigbo Ajao estate, Lagos, Igwe Fred Nwajagu, based on the scheme of things and place of Ndi igbo in Nigeria today, everybody should think home and jettison the present way of doing things.
He decried the attitude of Ndi Igbo who own mansions in foreign lands but have no hut in their communities, praying that everybody buys into the Akulueuno mantra.
