Iwuanyanwu who also called for one minute silence in honour of Late Ambassador Professor George Obiozor, CON and Professor Joe Irukwu, CFR, former Presidents General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, thanked Sen. Hope Uzodimma, Governor of Imo State, who doubles as the Chairman of the South East Governors Forum and the Chairman, Progressive Governors Forum for providing the venue for the meeting, adding that a meeting in a Lodge that belongs to any of the South East Governments is far more homely than the most luxurious hotel in Abuja.

Chief Iwuanyanwu expressed immense delight over the depth of supports he has received from the Igbo both at home and in the Diaspora, since he assumed Office.

Furthermore, he revealed that two weeks ago, a meeting of the National Executive Committee (NEC) was held at the National Headquarters of Ohanaeze Ndigbo in Enugu and that vital decisions were taken in the interests of Igbo.

He said that the leadership of Ohanaeze and some Igbo leaders visited the Alaba International Market for an on-the-spot assessment of the demolition of over thirty buildings belonging to Igbo traders by the authorities of the Lagos State and that Ohanaeze held an extensive discussion with the leadership of the Alaba International Market before meetting the Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

Major problems raised by the traders at the Alaba market were presented to the governor.

He added that Ohanaeze held discussions with the Igbo Elders in the home of Elder Commodore Ebitu Ukiwe, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, Ndieze Ndigbo and Ohanaeze delegates from the entire South West of Nigeria.

Chief Iwuanyanwu informed that time has come for Ohanaeze Ndigbo and indeed Ndigbo to harness her God-given endowments for an entirely new strategy in seeking lasting solutions to the Igbo challenges.

He thus pesented a five point agenda that he said must be pursued with all the intellect, zeal and commitment need, just as he highlighted on the solution to the insecurity in the South East, the need for an Education Trust Fund, need for a cultural re-orientation, resuscitation of Ailing Industries and Home-ward Industrial Renaissance and youth empowerment, among others.

Finally, Chief Iwuanyanwu commended Sen. Uzodimma for the invaluable supports he has been rendering to Ohaeneze Ndigbo even before he assumed Office as the Governor of Imo State.

At the meeting, Governor of Imo State spoke on behalf of the South East Governors while Sen. Eyinnaya Abaribe spoke on behalf of Senators and Rt. Hon. Iduma Igariwey on behalf of Members of the House of Representatives.

They all poured encomiums on Chief Iwuanyanwu’s leadership, saying he is a beacon of hope for the Igbo.

Many vital issues affecting the Igbo were elaborately discussed. Among the vital issues raised was the state of insecurity in the South East.

It was noted that decurity is in the Exclusive Legislative List in the Nigerian Constitution and that the powers to deploy the Nigerian Soldiers and the Nigeria Police to strategic places in the country reside in the Presidency.

They said the daily loss of lives and properties in the South East requires an urgent attention of the Presidency. It was therefore resolved that a high-powered Igbo delegation will meet the Presidency to discuss on the immediate and remote causes as well as the viable solutions to the insecurity in the South East.
