Igbo liberation movement in critical stage, says ADF
ALAIGBO Development Foundation (ADF) has said that Igbo liberation movement has turned a crucial corner with the change of guard in Nzuka Umunna (NU).
The issues of campaigning for President of Igbo extraction in 2023 and a restructured Nigeria, where fiscal federalism and decentralised policing are upheld, have been occupying the attention of different Igbo groups.
ADF, a socio-cultural development group, therefore, contended that “the time has come for all pro-Igbo organisations to close ranks” and work assiduously for the liberation of Igboland.
It stressed: “The current challenges require egbe uche (thought trigger) and egbe aka (trigger of action) more than egbe onu (trigger of talk).”
The foremost Igbo group made the assertions, while congratulating Senator Chris Anyanwu on her recent emergence as the president of frontline Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Nzuko Umunna (NU), as announced by patron of the organisation, Prof. Pat Utomi.
In a statement by its chairman of Media and Publicity Bureau, Abia Onyike, ADF declared: “Senator Chris Anyanwu was eminently qualified to contribute her quota to the Igbo emancipation struggle, given her rich pedigree as an accomplished journalist, seasoned political leader and consummate technocrat.”
ADF also expressed appreciation to Mr. Ngozi Odumuko for creditably and successfully shepherding NU from inception.
“The Igbo liberation movement has entered a critical stage, requiring more of strategic engagement than social media propaganda blitz or newspaper headline fantasy,” the group reiterated.
