A group of Igede progressives under the auspices of Igede Progressives Network (IPN) in conjunction with Igede National Youth Council (INYC) is to hold a public lecture as part of activities marking this year’s Igede Agba New Yam Festival.
The maiden edition of the lecture, which is scheduled to take place tomorrow, Saturday, September 5, at Synergy Place, Ichakobe, Oju LGA, beginning from 10am, is titled: “Igede Economic and Political Realities: The Way Forward.”
Comr. Andyson Iji Egbodo, who spoke on behalf of IPN, said the lecture is aimed at boosting the tourism potentials of Igede Agba Festival.
He further said that the chairman of the event, Ambassador EMMANUEL ODE OCHI, the Oji Kpururu 1 of Ibilla, and other notable Igede leaders in the Diaspora have already arrived ahead of the event.
The lecture specially prepared to be delivered in Igede language but with interpretation in English where necessary will draw Igede resource persons including former United Nations consultant, Dr. Isaac Egboja, Frank Alochu and some scholars of international repute, as well as the creme de la creme of Igede home-based academics.
