Mrs. Ojukwu stated, “I implore the Federal Government to release Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. I demand his immediate and unconditional release from prison. This is a democracy. No nation that brazenly holds its citizens in captivity ever advances, develops, or instils patriotism in its citizens.

“No one can subdue the Igbo spirit. This is a truth that many individuals have refused to acknowledge. Ndigbo have always preferred to die with our heads held high rather than on our knees begging.

“Never before in Igbo history have we witnessed such brutality and wickedness as we do now.” Nigeria has become, in a sense, a crematorium. Our youth see nothing but an endless wasteland in their future. There is no Federal Government presence in the South East.”

 

Mrs. Ojukwu, after a thorough examination of the nation’s economy, stated that “it has irretrievably collapsed” and that life and property are neither guaranteed nor protected.

Her words: “The economic collapse is irreversible. The system failure has practically affected everything and everyone. The government can no longer guarantee the protection of life and property. The system failure has also affected all aspects of life, including commerce, agriculture, education, and trade.

“There are individuals who, from the comfort of their homes, routinely steal oil from our communities and profit handsomely.”

“2025th is close at hand. Our leaders must be held accountable for their deeds, misdeeds, actions, and inactions. It is time for payback.”

Mrs. Ojukwu praised Chief Ralph Uwazuruike for funding the annual event on his own and stated, “No government is assisting Chief Uwazuruike in this endeavor.
