Igbo Youths Crown the First Mayor in Akwa-Ibom
It was exhilarating, a convivial ceremony that signalled a reviving moment for the Igbo in Akwa-Ibom State as Igbo Youths coronated her first mayor on Sunday, 20th March, 2022. Having fulfilled the requirements of the organization, Mazi Nwankwor, John Emeka was corronated the first Igbo Mayor in Akwa-Ibom.
Igbo Youths is an elevated association formed by young Igbo traders and workers to see to the needs of Igbos domicile in Abak Local Government of Akwa-Ibom State. Opperating under the ideology of "Nwanne di na mba", (there is a brother in jungle), the association is targeted at assisting members to keep feet with the hard nature of Nigerian economy.
To be crowned a mayor, one has to be found worthy in character, representing the Igbo race in the exhibition of features that characterized Ndigbo. Addition to these, he must be one who is well to do; not the richest, but respectfully rich such that he could give assistance when necessary. He must not show kindness because of his ambition. He must have been found possessing kindness as a character before he could be selected for such an honour.
This Abia born Isuochi man was found in the character of assisting people and standing in the gap for Igbo brethren who were stucked in one financial problem or the other. Very close to this title taking, Emeka singlehandedly funded the settlement and release of one Igbo business man who was falsely accused and arrested by Abak indigenous.
AjuedeNews gathered that Emeka was selected for this honour following the many testimonies gathered from people whom God used him to librate.
