Igbo Union In Finland Celebrates New Yam Festival In Grand Style.

The Igbo union in Finland marked this years new yam festival popularly known as iriji in igbo language with pomp and pageantry. The beauty of this years celebration is that it is in conjunction with the Finnish hundred years anniversary. The event was chaired by Mazi Kentucky and other notable dignitaries were in attendance. The recognition of various states chairmen under Igbo Union Finland wasn’t left out and the representatives of other tribes were equally acknowledged. Igbo Union In Finland is one of the most viable union of foreign nationals in Finland and it is the only ethnic union from Nigeria which is recognized by the Finnish government.


The climax of the Occasion was the recognition of Mrs Hintikka OS. Korpiren, a Finnish social worker who was sent to Eastern Nigeria by the Finnish government during the Biafra war to take care of the war victims in igbo land.
