Igbo Unity is not rocket science, but it would be difficult to achieve. Yours truly is proposing, Igbo common agenda, through which, Igbo Unity can be approached. Remember, without unity of purpose, there would be little or no achievement as a group/tribe.

To achieve Igbo common agenda, let every Igbo group(s), nominate one or two person(s), may be their executives or non executive members etc. Those nominated should form a group or a committee or college of delegates or Igbo institute of agenda formulations or they could choose a name that suits them. Since Igbos are scattered all over Nigeria and the world, the author will use Lagos State as an example to illustrate how this idea can work. Let all the Igbo community unions/groups in Lagos, elect one or two persons from their group, Those elected, should then form a college of delegates to fashion the Igbo agenda, for Igbos in Lagos. Same steps, for Igbos in other states of the country. When this is achieved, each state can then nominate one person, from their college of delegate, they would then form the national Igbos delegates in Nigeria. Those in Diaspora can follow the pattern above. Their mission is only to fashion out the Igbo agenda.

Agreements on any agenda to be on simple majority. If there is no agreement on a particular subject(s), then each delegate(s) should conduct a yes or no votes/opinion poll, on their group members. Sum total of all votes/opinion polls, to be counted with simple majority winning. If an agenda is accepted/formulated, then various groups can begin to pursue it. Strategies for implementation should be included on the agenda(s). In addition groups, can begin to co-operate on common charity projects that would benefit people. All Igbo unions/groups should retain their identities, and function as usual. A memorandum of understanding to be produced and signed by all willing Igbo unions/groups.


Please vote Yes or No if you want your Igbo community group(s) to participate in this Igbo Unity processes. A similar template has been prepared for online Igbo organisations/groups worldwide. If nations with different cultures, identities, ideologies, etc can come together to form European Union, then there is no reason, why we cannot achieve a unity of purpose/common agenda for a mono tribe like us. At the macro level, referendum can be used to determine the larger Igbo agenda.

I AGREE WITH YOU. THIS POLITICAL FORMULA IS NOT NEW TO THE IGBOS, HOWEVER. IT HAS BEEN THERE THE WHOLE TIME! IT JUST CANNOT FIND A FERTILE PLATFORM NEEDED FOR IT TO SPROUT INTO THE VERITABLE IROKO IT WOULD BE IN MOST SOCIETIES. OUR ACEPHALOUS NATURE WHICH FINDS EXPRESSIONS IN STATEMENTS SUCH AS :' IWU KWANU ONYE?' AND ' NGA ONYE BI KA O NA AWACHI' HAVE BECOME LIKE THE BIBLICAL ROCKY GROUNDS.
