Odumegwu Ojukwu deserves to be immortalised

ANGLICAN Bishop of Amichi Diocese, Nnewi in Anambra State, Ephraim Ikeakor, has said that late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu- Ojukwu deserves to be immortalised in all the states of the federation, including Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

He told journalists in Awka on Wednesday that as a hero, Odumegwu-Ojukwu deserves more than a national burial and charged the South-East to give him the honour due to him.

Ikeakor said: “Odumegwu-Ojukwu’s name should be immortalised in every state by naming institutions, streets and monuments after him because he was a true patriot who sacrificed his life for Ndigbo”.

On Boko Haram issue, Ikeakor said only northern leaders have the solution to the sect’s menace.

“The northern leaders know what is happening, let their leaders stop the Boko Haram menace and let the government be decisive and thorough with the issues concerning Boko Haram”, he stated.
