In January delegates across the seven Igbo speaking states of Nigeria namely, Abia, Anambra, Anioma in Delta, Ebonyi, Enugu, Imo and Ikwerre in Rivers will democratocally elect new leaders for the Apex Igbo Organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo.

The Coalition noted that the challenges ocassioned by the Covid-19 pandemic necessitated the use of the virtual platform to hold such an all-important Session for Igbos across the world.

The statement partly read, “Zoom provides us an alternative to reach out to Igbos across the globe. With the online meeting, Ndigbo in the diaspora and in Nigeria will be able to connect to hear directly from these aspirants.

“The Igbo Nation has its principles built on democratic Republicanism; therefore, making it one of the oldest democracies in the world.

“The virtual meeting traverses the borders of Nigeria such that Igbos in China, UK, America, Ghana, South Africa or even Alaba Market can watch in real time.”

The last general election for President General, which saw Chief Nnia Nwodo emerge as the President General was held in 2017. This election scheduled for January 11, 2021 would see the election of a new President General who would serve the Igbo race for one 4 year term.
