Delta State-born philanthropist, Gabriel Iyoh, has emerged the President General of Ndi-Igbo United Forum (NUF), declaring that Igbo would rise again in Nigeria.

NUF is a socio-political forum for Igbo across the world, aimed to protect the interest, and welfare, as well as maintain and encourage peaceful co-existence between the Igbo and other tribes around the world.

Addressing delegates drawn from Abia, Enugu, Anambra, Imo, Ebonyi, Rivers and Delta, who unanimously endorsed his nomination as the new leader of the organisation during their expanded National Executive Council (NEC) meeting held in Enugu State, Iyoh stated that he would strive to unify segments of Igbo for equal development.

He stated that unity is key to the political advancement of Ndigbo in Nigeria. He stressed that he would explore his contacts and connections for the overall good of the people.

Iyoh, who is the South-South Director, of Operations, for the Military Widows Association of Nigeria (MIWA), therefore, charged members of the organisation to continue advocating for peaceful co-existence, assuring that their unity would move Igbo forward.
