A group, United Umuigbo Assembly, has called on the people of the Igbo nation to be united in order to be able to match other ethnic groups politically and economically; stating that the current trend in the Igbo nation where every Igbo person thinks about himself alone has not helped the people in any way.
Speaking yesterday in Awka, Anambra State capital, during an emergency meeting of the group for the dissolution of the state Executive Council of the body and inauguration of the newly reconstituted EXCO, the President-General of the organisation, Hon Evang Ralph Nwadavid, said that Ndigbo cannot fare well in any way except the people shun selfishness, back-biting, and situations where one would betray his brother in order to buy favour.
He called on the leadership of Ohaneze Ndigbo, as well as other groups that have interest in the emancipation of the Igbo people to bring the people together under one umbrella so that they will have headway politically and economically, instead of being slaves under other ethnic nationalities; “This is the only way Ndigbo can survive in this multi-ethnic country called Nigeria”, he said.
While inaugurating the reconstituted executive council for the state led by Sir Eric Ezeifedigbo as Chairman, the President-General said: “As the name implies, the new executive of the United Umuigbo Assembly in Anambra State is charged with the responsibility of moving the association to the next level.
