Who we are
All about the Igbo people.
The Igbo people of West Africa have their ancestral home in present day Southern Nigeria. Igboland is divided into two unequal halves by the River Niger. The larger half falls within Eastern Nigeria, while the smaller part is in Western Nigeria. Presently the Igbo States in the Nigerian polity are comprised of Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu, and Imo, parts of Delta, Rivers, Akwa Ibom, Bayelsa, Benue, Cross River and Kogi States. The Igbo people however sojourn in almost all the countries of the world, in search of greener pastures. Thus, they have become rovers whose footprints are solidly entrenched in all enviable professions and endeavours such as business, education, politics and administration, science and technology, religion, arts and entertainment, sports, and other sectors.
