In furtherance of the goal of serving as a non-partisan bridge for the unification of the Igbo race of Nigeria which he emphasized in a press interview last week, former Abia State governor, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, convened a meeting of intellectuals at his Aso Villa mansion in Abuja till the late hours of Sunday night.

The aims of the group called NJIKO IGBO include harmonization of different interests in the South East Zone of Nigeria, facilitation of a common South East position on national issues, rekindling the spirit of political participation among the citizens at the grass roots across the zone as well as channeling such enthusiasm to positive national goals, building bridges across political tendencies in the zone and extending such bridges to other geo-political zones for the full re-integration of the zone among others.

The meeting was attended by high profile businessmen, professionals and politicians including national chairmen of some political parties.

    OUK, May the Almighty, grant you the wisdom, strength and patience to accomplish this laudable task of uniting Ndiigbo of which you have embarked.. We hope that other prominent Igbo sons and daughter will step out now and be counted. Igboland calls, Ndiigbo we must harken to this call . Let us rally round Orji Uzo Kalu and other Igbo leaders. Igbo unity is within reach now.
    Ndewo nu o!
