2017 Igbo Day: Ohaneze Submits Worries To God. by Masterclass32: 1:14am On Sep 05, 2017
OHANAEZE Ndigbo said
they have decided to use the
2017 Igbo Day celebration to
submit all their worries, agitation
and marginalisation to God.

The apex Igbo body said that
Ndigbo had in all times believed
in God’s superintendent in their
affairs, in everything they did
and urged all Igbo not to lose
faith in God in their tribulations in Nigeria.

The body therefore prayed the
people in all parts of the world to
use the one week 2017 Igbo Day
celebration to re dedicate their
worries to the Almighty.

Chairman of the National
Organizing Committee of the 2017
Igbo Day Celebration, Dr. Greg
Ibe, made the prayed in a World
Press briefing at Enugu, Monday,
when the committee released the time for celebration.

Ibe said they are praying for a
myriad of challenges presently
facing Ndigbo which they would
use the occasion to ask God for
intervention.

He said “Our prayer points are
numerous. It ranges from Justice,
peace, equity and all that will
bring us in total belonging to this
country called Nigeria.”

Ibe said that in keeping with the
tradition of Ohanaeze Ndigbo,
activities for the 2017 edition of
Igbo Day Celebration have been
scheduled to hold from Saturday
23 to Friday 29 September 2017 with the theme “OGANIRU ANYI
DI N’AKA CHUKWU.”

With the Grand Finale scheduled
to hold in Port Harcourt, Rivers
state on September 29, the
activities will commence on
Saturday 23 September with
worship in selected Sabbath churches.

On Sunday 24 September,
Members will worship in selected
church denominations across the
nation and in the diaspora.

Tuesday 25 and Wednesday 26
are for awareness activities by
state chapters of Ohanaeze
Ndigbo, while Wednesday 27
September is for Prophetic
prayers in Abuja.

Thursday 28 September is a
Symposium at University of Port
Harcourt followed by all night
vigil, while September 29 is the
Grand Finale in Port Harcourt.

Ibe said that Ohanaeze annually
organizes the Igbo Day
Celebration as a way of
commemorating the unique Igbo
traditional heritage.

“Against the backdrop of the
current challenges of Ndigbo and
as a way of seeking divine
solutions to these problems,
Ohanaeze Ndigbo has decided to
use the annual Igbo Day Celebration for 2017 to mobilize
Igbos across the globe to pray
and seek the face of God for
Nigeria and Ndigbo in particular.

“All Igbos in Nigeria and in the
diaspora are enjoined to be
actively involved in the
programme,” Ibe said.
