Nzuko Umunna an Igbo Think Tank organization proudly felicitates with the Igbo Nation on the success of the just concluded restructuring summit held at Awka.
With the Ekwueme Square 2018 declaration, Ndigbo through the instrumentality of its Apex sociocultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo made their demand open with great sense of direction.
We see this initiative as a step in the right direction as this necessary call for the urgent restructuring of the country has been replicated across the various regions of the country with the apparent unworkability of the status quo.
We commend the exemplary leadership of the President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo, in particular the host Governor, Chief Willie Obiano, who showed great leadership and patriotism by hosting the world class summit, other South East Governors, the Deputy senate president, Prof Ike Ekweremadu and Distinguished Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe for leading members of the National assembly to the historic program, clergies, the planning committee of the summit headed by the erudite Prof. Charles Soludo, leaders of the various Igbo organizations who put in enormous efforts and resources to ensure the success of the summit.
Your sacrifices are great prices you pay to ensure a fair, just, inclusive and restructured Nigeria for us all.
We are strongly optimistic that all hands would be on deck in consolidating the gains of this summit and sustaining efforts towards the eventual restructuring of the country.
Nzuko Umunna equally extend our heartfelt gratitude to all who attended the summit especially the guests from various regions of the country who came to express their solidarity and support to our demand.
That the summit massively attracted the leaders and people of other regions from the Middle Belt, South West and South-South shows that we share similar position on the problems we face and the solutions we proffer to the past and recent happenings that threaten the very existence of our country Nigeria.
Finally, Nzuko Umunna use this opportunity once more to call on the Federal Government of Nigeria to feel the pulse of the people, listen to their demands and expedite necessary actions towards the restructuring of the country as this remains the irreducible minimum in ensuring a united Nigeria and an environment for massive economic development across the various regions of the country.
We also seize this medium in appreciating the church for the peaceful protest conducted against herdsmen killing and we send our condolences to the families of victims all over the federation.
