He went further to say: “IWU also aims to showcase Ndigbo, her customs, cultural heritage and the Igbo people’s legendary hospitality to the world with a grand view of re-positioning Ndigbo and Nigeria through same by attracting dignitaries and investors from around the globe, thereby opening a whole new vista for Ndigbo and Nigeria.”
