ALAIGBO DEVELOPMENT FOUNDATION (ADF) is a registered Non-Governmental
Organization of Igbo Intelligentsia, Elders, Clergy, Patriotic public figures, Women and Youth, both at home and abroad, with the main objective of protecting and ensuring the survival of Ndigbo, their Culture and Civilization as well as the development of Igbo-
The Rebuilding and Development of Igbo Nation and
The Rebirth and Advancement of the Spirit of her Culture and Civilization
Ndigbo in History.
Issues examined at the three-day event ranged from Ndigbo in Pre-history, the
Colonial era, the First Republic up to the Nigeria/Biafra War as well as events since the end of the war.
The universality, richness and complexity of Igbo culture and civilization have been
recorded in various global literatures. The appeal of Chinua Achebe’s epic novel, Things Fall Apart, does not lie in Achebe’s literary genius alone; it lies also in the fact that in the Igbo culture depicted in the novel, every other nation – from the Chinese, the Russians, Japanese, the Australians, Europeans, to the Americans, and most other nationalities in Africa – finds traces of its own ancient culture and civilization.
Where do the Igbos Stand?
There is acute feeling of loss of self-conﬁdence and national pride among the Igbos, aggravated mainly by the Biafra experience and the continued peripheral status of the Igbo nation in the scheme of things in Nigeria. And this is nation that has contributed more than any other nationality in the economic and political development of Nigeria. Meanwhile, the volatile nature of the Nigerian political environment has continued to fuel demands for the renegotiation of the basis for the co-existence of the over 350 Ethnic nationalities in Nigeria.
This call has been made by various segments and zones in the country in recent times. The Afenifere socio-cultural organization of the Yorubas, the South-South Forum, the Southern Nigeria Peoples Assembly, the Arewa Consultative Forum (when her citizens are not in control of political power), the Ohanaeze Ndigbo and the highly respected organization of The Patriots, many leading stakeholders in the Nigerian project, etc; all these have persistently called for a national Conference to renegotiate the basis of the Nigerian federal Union.
