Interacting with OgeneNews London, he said, I will immediately embark on three key areas.
First, his leadership will restructure Ohanaeze Ndigbo UK/Ireland to be a public fund holding agency that holds government’s fund and redistributing it amongst Igbo communities since Igbo people understand their communities better than the United Kingdom government and Western government and institutions.
He added that Ohanaeze will become a learning organisation for Igbo people, their associates, external agencies, including United Kingdom and International Agencies and will market Igbo identity as a way of civilisation
He further added that his leadership will engage in various activities to bring Igbo people together and revive their dying culture, he concluded.
