The Ohanaeze Ndigbo is asking all Ndigbo to pray for God’s help in bringing back peace and security to the Southeast region. They are deeply saddened by the recent killings and violence in Imo State and other parts of the area.
Okechukwu Isiguzoro, the factional Secretary-General of Ohanaeze, made this appeal ahead of the upcoming Igbo Day celebration. In a statement, he said, “We are very concerned about the ongoing killings and violence in Imo State and other places.”
Isiguzoro is calling on all Ndigbo to pray for God’s intervention and restore peace and security, especially in the southeast and Imo State. He firmly believes that God will answer their prayers.
On September 23, 2023, the Igbo people of Port Harcourt, Rivers State, gathered at the Seventh-Day Adventist Church for a special Thanksgiving Service and Prayer Session. This event was organized by Ohanaeze Ndigbo as part of the preparations for the grand finale of the Igbo Day celebration, which will be held at the Liberation Stadium in Port Harcourt on September 29th.
The service was attended by a large number of Igbo people, including representatives from Ohanaeze Ndigbo and the Elders Forum. Professor Thomas Amadi Ellah and Prince Richard Ozobu, the chairman of the Elders Forum, were among the notable attendees.
In his opening speech, Professor Ellah expressed his joy that despite the challenges and difficulties faced by the Igbo people, they still had many reasons to be thankful to God for His faithfulness and mercy.
