The Igbo Global Think Tank and Professionals, NZUKO UMUNNA is set to organize and celebrate their second edition of “Handshake Across Nigeria” in Enugu this April 28, 2023.
Disclosing this in a release from the Media Committee, the Executive Secretary of the Think Tank, Mr. Ngozi Odumuko stated, “Coming at a time like this, the “Handshake Across Nigeria ” project, dedicated to expanding friendships and cementing bonds between Ndigbo and other nationalities of Nigeria, will again raise the decibel of our strength in diversities, as our great heritage for desired unity and development.
He emphasized, “As a nonpartisan body of committed optimists, experiences of history and facts of our co-existence, compel the awareness that Ndigbo is deep friends of our brother nationalities, and believe in one accord, that there is no love lost, that cannot be renewed, refreshed, and even transferred generationally. Nzuko Umunna is proud of this inspiration and remains humbled by stakeholders’ endorsements across the board, as we look forward to another big day with SouthEast State Governments as a great host.
The President of the group, Prof Chika Moore added, that understanding the core of inclusion, justice, and fairness expressed in a worthy handshake, activates respect that love is above hate when friendship is grown intentionally. “The pillars of trust must replace the columns of suspicions so that national cohesion will stand rooted in our hearts of liberty, freedom, and Security,” he affirmed.
The theme of this project, Building Bridges for a New Nigeria will expectedly rouse the conscience of Nigerian citizens to celebrate their bonds more together and signal the prosperity in happiness, a new Nigeria should become.
The Handshake Across Nigeria 2, is coming packed with three remarkable contents of historic design viz; the Public presentation of a book, “Nzuko Umunna Chronicles,” the transition and investiture of a new Executive Council led by former Vice Chancellor of UNN and former Minister of Power, Venerable Prof. Chinedu Nebo, and a special celebration of leaders from other regions as friends of Ndigbo (ENYI NDIGBO). Handshake Across Nigeria 2 project, is also enjoying the matchless personality of Nze Ozichukwu Chukwu as Chairman of the Planning Committee, steering to deliver value and warmth to all our special guests and partners.
The South East Governments and Governors as key partners to this project, are enthusiastic that in the midst of several broken connections and testy ethnic irritations, friendship in a handshake, is a bridge they are happy to build, and a renewal every guest should be assured of our full indulgence. Already, invitations have been duly sent to eminent Nigerian patriots and persistent champions for a Greater Nigeria of our dreams, with heartwarming confirmations for attendance and participation.
