Ejagham people need an identity, group urges
The people of Ejagham nation who are cut across the three senatorial districts of Cross River State have called on sons and daughters to be identity conscious to drive positive development to Ejagham.
The group, Ejagham Tradition (EJT) made the call at its 2019 maiden edition talk show held at the Ndidem’s Palace in Big Qua Town, Calabar, Cross River State. They said there is a need to create an identity for the Ejagham nation by coming together to build a strong bond of constructive positive initiatives.
One of its sons, who was the lead panelist at the talk show, Ntufam Senator Sandy Onoh, in his presentation, said the Ejaghams are a great nation. He said some ethnic groups such as the Igbo State Union, Arewa and so on were used for some constructive, positive developmental initiatives and efforts to drive development.
Onoh, who is the first Ejagham historian from the University of Calabar, charged the present generation to create an identity they can be identified with.
In the same vein, the Ndidem of quas, his Royal Majesty, and Paramount Ruler of Calabar Municipality, Ndidem Patrick Oqua said it is a duty to reconsolidate and bring ourselves together, shake off differences and work together.
Speaking on what gave birth to the call, chairman of the group, Nsagha Osaji, said the group was born out of the concern to have an identity that generations unborn would be known for.
