‘You Have Made Igbos Proud’ — Ohaneze Lauds Gov Soludo For Honouring Chinua Achebe

The Vice President of Ohaneze Ndigbo Worldwide, Chief Damian Okeke-Ogene, has eulogised Governor Chukwuma Soludo of Anambra, for renaming the Anambra International Cargo and Passenger Airport, Umueri, after the late literary icon, Prof. Chinua Achebe.


Okeke-Ogene said in a press statement in Awka on Saturday, that the gesture was an honour to Ndigbo, Africa and the entire black race.


He called on other South-East Governors to build monuments to immortalise the late literary icon who spent his entire life projecting Igbo social and cultural identity across the globe.


Okeke-Ogene noted that through his creative works, the late Achebe sustained the fight and outcry against “marginalisation, injustice and suppression of Ndigbo”.
