Ohaneze Ndigbo youth wing condemns IPOB attack on Ekweremadu

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youths Worldwide has taken a swipe at the members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) over their alleged attack on the former Deputy Senate President, Sen. Ike  Ekweremadu, in Germany.

Ekweremadu was reportedly attacked on Saturday by a group, which claimed to be IPOB members, at Nuremberg, Germany during a New Yam festival organised by Igbos.

In a reaction, the leader of the youth wing of Ohaneze Ndigbo, Arthur Uchenna-Obiorah, in a statement issued to newsmen on Sunday in Awka, described the incident as unfortunate.

Uchenna-Obiorah warned that Igbo youths would not tolerate such a barbaric act from irate youths that might want to hide under any disguise to abuse its leaders.

He described as unnecessary, the attack on Ekweremadu, whose clear antecedents and activities to end the marginalisation of Ndigbo, he said, were well-known to everybody.

He stated, “As a body, we condemn the attack in strong terms and demand an unreserved apology from the leadership of IPOB group for assaulting one of the most celebrated Igbo icons.” Read more

Ooni empowers 1,000 fashion designers

The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, on Saturday empowered no fewer than 1,000 fashion designers and charged them to be hardworking in their chosen career.

The Ooni gave the charge during the maiden edition of Ojaja Fashion Training Graduation  at his palace in Ile-Ife, Osun State.

Oba Ogunwusi thanked God for giving him the grace to contribute his own quota to the progress and growth of the beneficiaries who were mostly youths.

He condemned the rate at which crimes were increasing daily in the society, a situation he attributed to lack of jobs.

“Unemployment and none availability of helper for the less privileged have led most of our youths to take to prostitution, drug trafficking, kidnapping,internet fraud and the removal of human  organs for  rituals.

He said, “We need to put all hands on deck to assist the youth  academically and in vocational training, saying government alone cannot do it.”

The royal father also  condemned the rate at which the nation’s population was increasing daily without the provision of commensurate jobs .

He congratulated the parents, guardians and the graduands for the success of the training, and appealed to them not to abuse the opportunities given to them.

Also, Samuel Olaoluwa, the Coordinator of the programme, acknowledged God for the grace to coordinate the institute.

He noted that youths from across the country benefitted from the training, and urged other philanthropists to emulate the Ooni’s good gestures.

Also, the National President of the Nigeria Union of Tailors, Mr Wasiu Taiwo, commended the Ooni for the training.

He admonished the graduands to face their career and ensure that they  take it to greater heights.

Mrs Eniola Ali-Faweya, the Corporate Affairs Manager, Nigeria Breweries, Omi-Asoro, Ilesa, lauded the Ooni for the gesture.

Ali-Faweya advised the graduands to be  dedicated to their vocations.

She pledged that the company would continue to support the Ooni in all his efforts to empower youths and in other initiatives.

One of the benefactors who spoke on behalf of others, Miss Kehinde Adebiyi, applauded the Ooni for transforming their lives through the training and for providing them quality sewing machines. Read more
