By: Awesome Ekene

Online groups, WELCOME TO ANAMBRA and ANAMBRA TODAY have concluded arrangements for a one-day inaugural Home Coming Party and Lecture Series.

The event scheduled for December 18, 2021, at Obeledu, Anaocha Local Goverment Area of Anambra State, would feature paper presentations and lectures by Anambra State Commissoner of Police, CP Echeng Eworo Echeng, medical experts and others.

According to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the groups, Comrade Ikechukwu Okafor, the decision to host the event was informed by growing moral decadence and unwholesome practices youths engage in for money, fame and power.

He said, “I thought about the worrisome moral decadence and unwholesome practices that good number of today’s youths engage in for money, fame and power, then decided to utilize the occasion of the Inaugural Home Coming Party and Lecture Series to assemble youths to speak to them on topical issues affecting them.

“The issues billed for discussion during the program include: Dangers of drug abuse; the “mkpulu mmiri” example. The commandant of the Nigerian Drug Law Enforcement Agency NDLEA in the State, is expected to make presentation on this.

Comrade Okafor said that he carefully selected the topics following recent happenings in Anambra State in particular and Nigeria in general.

“Welcome To Anambra is a pan Igbo Socio-cultural group instituted to promote harmonious and peaceful co-existence amongst Anambra indigenes and their visiting residents irrespective of their faith, origin or culture.

“The teeming population of our members consist mostly of young people under 45 years of age. It is an online group owned and managed by me. The lecture series is in conjunction with Obeledu Medical Practitioners,” Okafor pointed out.
