Today, November 4 would have been Chukwuemeka Ojukwu’s 83 birthday. He was born November 4, 1933.
The leader of contemporary Igbo, Chief Chukwuemeka Odimegwu Ojukwu needs little introduction to the people of Nigeria or to the world community. The man who died a great hero to the people of the south eastern region of Nigeria was also an enigma to the general Nigerian population.
He continues to live in the minds of the south easterner as the greatest hero of all times.
