“He recalled his role in ending the civil war with the slogan of no victor no vanquished; repayment of huge external debts and recovery of the economy during his time as President.


“He informed the former President that the Igbo nation would bestow honour on him appropriately.


“Remember that when Chief Obasanjo was President, he appointed several Igbo sons and daughters into his cabinet and other high profile positions. A sense of belonging was provided the Igbo nation during that time.”


The former President was said to have been accompanied by Otunba Oyewole Fasawe; while some Igbo leaders and Ohanaeze chieftains at the meeting were Ambassador Emuchay; former Minister for Aviation, Amb Kema Chikwe; and Bishop Sunday Onuoha.
