Q Sir may we know why the Commemoration of the birthday of Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu is holding at Enugu on the 4th of November, 2016. What is the significance?



A The significance is to let Nigerians and Igbos continue having the memory of the great Ikemba in their consciousness.The man and the date of his birth is very memorable.



Q Why Enugu and Ohanaeze Ndigbo Secretariate. Was he born in Enugu.



A No, he was born in Zungeru, NIger state but hails from Nnewi in Anambra state. He lived most part of his life in Enugu. In any case where we observe it is immaterial . What is material is that we celebrated it.



Q What have you lined up for the programme.



A We have lined up a lot for the event such as a colloquium, film show , honour for some departed great Igbo men and women such as the ZIK OF AFRICA, M I OKPARA, AKANU IBIAM  and others. WE shall also flag off the Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu Leadership Foundation which the Publisher of Nigerian and African Master web, Chief Charles Okereke is the BOT CHAIRMAN AND The well known writer and author ,HOn Chuks Ibegbu is the Executive Director.



Q How do you see the state of Ndigbo since the death of the icon.



A Well you know Ndigbo have collective leadership . However some leaders are so contributory that their absence create a lot of vacuum. I think Ojukwu's death created a deep vacuum but Igbos are adapting to it. He was a great Igbo man and Nigerian patriot. He was more patriotic than many Nigerians leaders that paid lip service to our unity.



THANK YOU MR OBISIKE.




A YOU ARE WELCOME.
