Every month, @cfmemories (Ncheta Ndigbo) organises an event in Enugu called Nkata Umu Ibe, meant for Igbo people to talk intelligently about issues. You can catch all the videos here - bit.ly/2Ite4PM
A year ago, a group of five girls from Regina Pacis Secondary School in Onicha did all Igbo people, and indeed all of #Nigeria proud by winning an award for an app they developed to detect fake drugs cnn.it/2IrDmO3
Yesterday, their mentor, @uchesilver, was the speaker at #NkataUmuIbe. For bringing her, I must express my deep appreciation to @pokigbo and @nnannaude as it is important for Igbo youth to have proper role models.

It was a great honour & pleasure to have spent an hour chatting Governance with Chief John Nnia Nwodo, President-General of Ohaneze Ndigbo. I was blown away by his intellect, grace, charm and polish. I had some hard questions for him, including what “Restructiring” meant. Thread.
I had noticed Chief Nwodo and just greeted him, like everyone else was doing. Lo and behold, we were to sit next to each other on the Enugu-Abuja Air Peace flight. First thing he said when he sat next to me is: “You must introduce me to your tailor.”😊
Former Minister of Planning Prof Osita Ogbu then introduced us and told him that I had just been the speaker at the last #NkataUmuIbe. He apologized for missing it. It was my opportunity to then tell him I had criticised Ohaneze at the event for taking sides in the last election.
