PREE STATEMENT

WE MOURN A GREAT PATRIOT

His Royal Highness, Igwe Ernest Okechukwu, Igwe of Mararaba, Akaonyewetere I of Ndigbo in Diaspora and his Cabinet were shocked on the news of the death of our great leader Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu in London recently. His death is a national tragedy and a big loss to Ndigbo.

Dim  Ojukwu was an embodiment of patriotism. He was fearless and courageous. He strongly opposed injustice, oppression and dictatorship.

Nigerians have lost a great leader. We commiserate with members of his family and pray that God Almighty will grant them the fortitude to bear the loss.

As we mourn this illustrious Nigerian, we pray that God will raise another powerful Igbo leader like him.

We commend members of the National Assembly for the tributes paid to Dim Ojukwu. We urge the Federal Government to give him a national burial in recognition of his selfless service to the nation.

We also commend the National Assembly for rejecting same-sex marriage bill. The bill was obnoxious and repugnant to our esteemed culture.

His Royal Highness, Igwe Ernest Okechukwu
