Igbo Kwenu Honours Dr. Sandra Duru


…Sandra C Duru: More than just a woman

Once in every generation, God always bless a community, race, people or nation with a rare gem. Coming far ahead of their generation, they  come equipped with exceptional qualities, fearless courage, intelligence and above all, gifted with such extraordinary natural resourcefulness that everything they touch turns to gold. 

Dr. Sandra Duru

Such is the story of Dr. Sandra C Duru, a human rights activists per excellence, a philanthropist,a good governance advocate,a social crusader and defender of the oppressed.

We celebrate and honour Sandra Duru today because she is a gift to the Igbo race and this generation. Though her fearless attitude towards life has attracted lots of negative attitudes towards her coupled with blackmail attempts. But, it was in those negatives and standing her ground for the right thing to be done that her real qualities was established. This is one of the qualities why we decided to honour her today and to use her story as a source of encouragement to other upcoming women to drive courage from Dr. Duru and be who they desire to be.

To for instance, In 2014, Dr. Sandra Duru single handedly fought for one Aminu Abrangaou,a teacher and Togolese national whom the Nigerian police molested for taking the picture of policemen who were extorting money from motorist. Chief Sandra Duru on hearing of this injustice took on the Nigerian High Police and ensured the said Aminu Abrangaou was released even at the detriment of her life. This bold and courageous act of hers prevented Nigeria from having a diplomatic row with Togo. Today,the teacher is walking freely thanks to Chief Sandra.

Again, Dr. Sandra Duru,who was a consultant to the Standard Orgamization of Nigeria did not close her eyes to the corrupt practices of the then Director General,Dr. John Ndanusa whose live wired corruption she uncovered. Attempts were made at her life but she remained resolute. If the then government had cooperated with her by now corruption would have been a thing of the past.

One other inspiring story about Dr. Sandra that must be told is her courageous battle to stop one Edythe Edythe Edythe a serial blackmailer that has blackmailed and got several innocent Nigerians deported from US.

Moving over to US, Dr. Sandra was confronted with this serial blackmailer answering several names who has blackmailed lots of Nigerians on the pretense of helping them. She  played same tricks on her. She normally dupe Nigerians on first time visit to US  of their funds, on pretense of helping them, set them up, report them to the authorities after giving them fake papers and have them deported so that they won’t sue.

But, this serial blackmailer answering  Edith Ayiya Chiedu Modebe (EDYTH EDYTH EDYTH) meet a brick wall on Sandra as today she’s on the point of going to prison in US.

They went as far as using nijagist.com to publish fake stories about her. They run the blog uncensored, unaccredited, unrecognised, uncertified alongside Naijagistslive/naijagists.com and several other online group which they use in blackmailing prominent Nigerians in the past like Dangote, Sandra Duru etc until the fall in to the trap of Nigerian no nonsense billionaire Otedula and today they are at the point of going to jail in Nigeria, while through Sandra’s courageous stand, the same faith awaits Edyth in US.

When her media manager contacted them to balance the story which they have edited twice, they demanded for a very huge sum of money the Nigerian style. As a result, our lion hearted lady decided to let them swim in their unprofessionalism and cheap blackmail.

For all her courage in standing out and standing forth for what’s right, exhibiting the true courageous spirit of  Igbo daughter in her fight against injustice. We are honouring her to use her as an example to encourage other women to aspire fearlessly.

Therefore, As a fallout of our 2nd Anniversary, after intensive debate and going through her rich accomplishments, Igbo kwenu one of the most interactive online group for Ndi Igbo Worldwide with over 155,000 active members decided to appoints Sandra C Duru Cultural Ambassador And Honours Her As Ada Oma Ndi Igbo Worldwide.

With her appointment, Chief Sandra has been authorized to hold Igbo Kwenu and other Igbo related meetings in Northern America, organize cultural exchange programs using her rich resourceful international connections that will entail Igbo Kwenu members visiting US for cultural exchange.

It will be recalled that prior to her relocating to United States,  multitude of youths has benefited from her largese as well as those she has empowered through the youth empowerment programme and grassroot development. She’s today equally running a monthly financial empowerment program on her Facebook wall.
