The maiden Emeka Anyaoku symposium, held today, Tuesday, 8th March, 2022 at the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka.

Organisers of the event, The Emeka Anyaoku Institute for International Studies and Diplomacy, had invited eminent personalities to discuss the theme ‘Nigeria In The Comity Of Nations’.

Seated at the high table, and in the audience, were a galaxy of stars and personalities, including the Obi of Onitsha, Igwe Alfred Nnaemeka Achebe (Agbogidi), former Governor of Anambra state, Mr Peter Obi, Anambra state Governor-elect, Prof. Charles Chukwuma Soludo, and Anambra state Governor, Chief Willie Obiano. The three governors; former, outgoing and incoming were seated together.

When it was time for former Nigerian President, Olusegun Obasanjo to make his Chairman’s speech, he used the trio, seated at the high table as an anecdote.

He said that God blessed, and continues to bless Anambra state with good leaders and individuals. He praised Governor Obiano’s government for building the Anambra airport (he had landed at the airport earlier in the day). President Obasanjo said that it would be difficult to witness the scenario unfolding before the guests in other states, of three successive governors sitting together on the same table at a function. He prayed that this will continue, a rancour-free atmosphere for the continued development of the state. The guests couldn’t agree less, and gave the former President a thunderous ovation for his remarks.

May God please continue to give Anambra state good leaders committed to peace, and Anambra state’s socio-economic development, Amen.

Kudos to Prof Au Nonyelu, Director of the Emeka Anyaoku Institute for International Studies and Diplomacy, and Prof Charles Okechukwu Esimone, Vice Chancellor of Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka for putting together a beautiful show.
