ADF STATEMENT ON THE MAY 30, 2018 REMEMBRANCE DAY CELEBRATIONS.alaigbo
Events in Alaigbo on May 30, 2018, once more show that May 30 has become an official Igbo Remembrance Day not only in Alaigbo but throughout the entire world where Igbo citizens live.
The BBC, Vanguard newspaper and other notable media organs report of high level compliance by Umuigbo to the call for SIT-AT-HOME by the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) and the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB).
From London to Johannesburg, to several cities in Europe, Asia, America and Canada, the story is the same with various activities organized by Umuigbo and their friends to mark the occasion.
Last year, on May 30, 2017, the entire Alaigbo was shut down; markets, shops, schools and offices closed while streets were deserted to mark the Remembrance Day.
The Alaigbo Development Foundation (ADF) is fully aware that May 30 is a day in the history of Alaigbo, deeply rooted in the heart of our people and which nobody can wish away or ban by force of Law or prevent by force of arms.
It is in the light of this that the Alaigbo Development Foundation (ADF) has fully supported the observance of May 30, 2018 and activities lined out for the day by different Igbo organizations.
May 30 marks the day Biafra was declared in 1967 and no patriotic Igbo son or daughter can pretend that Biafra is not part of the history and indeed the major watershed in the history of the Igbo nation.
