WIC: Igbos meet in the U.S. to determine their future in Nigeria
Ndigbo in the diaspora have resolved to use its upcoming World Igbo Congress (WIC) Convention which is to hold in Nashville, Tennessee, United States of American (USA) from August 30th to September 3rd to determine which way forward for Igbos come 2019.
Chairman, Board of Directors of the Apex board around the world, Anthony Ejiofor told The Guardian that the convention for 2018 is all about providing solutions to the clear and present danger they face in Nigeria, preserving lives and designing the future of Igbo land. The convention will serve as platform for sober reflection on the tragedy of the Igbo Nation and an articulation on the way forward, considering the looming political suicide where Nigeria’s structural tripod may exist without Ndigbo in contemplation.
According to the Public Relation Officer (PRO), WIC, Basil Onwukwe, the trend of events in Nigeria has been a cause for concern with series of mass killings while the executive and legislatures are threatening each other for political expediency. “We preferred this year’s theme to be ‘Ka anyi chekwaa alaigbo’, which means that Igbo land needs to be protected because our government is not doing enough to save lives and properties.”
