A Tithe is a concept from the Bible which mandates all to donate a percentage of their earnings to the advancement of the doctrine.
In the same vein, the Igbo tithe is a new concept which mandates all Igbo within and outside Nigeria to pay a voluntary periodic tithe to designated development funds for the rapid development of the South East. Under this scheme, designated addresses for receipt of bank drafts and other monetary instruments should be established and designated bank accounts opened within Nigeria. In the Diaspora, merchant online accounts, designated bank accounts and designated addresses for receipt of bank drafts and other monetary instruments should be established where such donations could be made for specific projects under a reputable and transparent management to be created.
For purposes of transparency, all those who make donations should receive receipts, and the balances as recorded in the accounts should be published every quarter with a precise detail of any ongoing project being funded from the scheme.
