The Igbo must rise to take their collective place in the world.
The time has come for us to ponder, come to self-appraisal and rediscover where we missed it. The Igbo must rise to take their collective place in the world. The Igbo have come a long way, ours is an ancient civilization which must not be eclipsed for eternity. We have what it takes to create one of the world’s economic miracles – The African Tiger! Although we have known trouble, trials and persecution, but we can only be stronger. Nations that defy their odds are the ones that eventually celebrate real greatness. Just like the mythical Phoenix, we must rise from the ashes!! The time is now; if we must have a place those future generations would be proud to call home. As one of Africa’s single largest ethnic groups, projected at 40 million people, we shall prevail. Let’s rise above all barriers, eschew all bitterness, divisions and individualism. Ngwa nu industrious and innovative people, we have a date with destiny!!! And the God of Heaven will prosper us in our quest to build Igboland.
