The creme da La Creme of the Nigerian society including politicians, academia, and business moguls will on Saturday converge in Owerri to witness the presentation of a book written by Governor Hope Uzodinma.
The Eastern Updates gathered that book, ‘REFLECTIONS ON THE IGBO QUESTION‘, is an attempt to situate the marginalization of Ndigbo in the NIGERIAN PROJECT and how to get over it.
In a statement he issued in Owerri on the matter, Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Hon Declan Emelumba described the book as the thoughts of the governor on the existential challenges of Ndigbo in the Nigerian State.
According to Emelumba, although Uzodimma is a patriotic Nigerian who believes in the unity of the country, he wants other Nigerians to understand the pains of Ndigbo with a view to addressing the anomalies.
Reflections on the Igbo question clearly underlines and projects his thoughts on the existential challenges of Ndigbo in project Nigeria, including real and perceived marginalization.
Hon Emelumba said the book also x-rays the denial of justice and equity to Ndigbo such that some of them now feel despondent and abandoned.
But most importantly, said the commissioner, the book gives graphic guidelines on how best to address the vexing issue to enable Ndigbo have a fair and due share in the Nigerian project.
The commissioner disclosed that high caliber personalities have been invited to the book presentation scheduled for Saturday, December 11, 2021 at Eze Imo Palace, Mbari Street, Owerri by noon.
