The entire Igbo nation today, comes together to mark our Remembrance Day. On this day, we remember the souls of the flower of our nation, who became the ultimate sacrifice, so that we may survive and thrive.
Anyi-Anyi joins all Igbos at home and in diaspora, to reflect on this sacrifice of the many, to maintain the freedom and uphold the dignity of our people.
The unity and harmony of the Igbo Nation is now more important than any other concern. The unity we seek, is not to engage in further conflict, but to build common ground, together as kindred, in pursuit of our God-given purpose and destiny.
Anyi-Anyi asks all Igbos, and any who feel marginalised and underappreciated, to remain resilient, steadfast, optimistic, and committed to the spirit of freedom, believing that the sun will displace the darkness and bring forth light. We believe it is only a matter of time before we achieve a Just, Safe and Free Society, where all will be free to decide their own destiny and to be the best version of themselves – in true credit to their Creator.
