News Release: May 30 As Igbo National Remembrance Day


May 30 is a Day that occupies such a nodal point in the history of Alaigbo and her neighbours. It should be hoisted as A DAY OF REMEMBRANCE of the millions who died that we may be from; yes, who died in the cause of our struggle for self-determination and survival as a people.

Alaigbo Development Foundation (ADF is aware that several Igbo organizations have often scheduled activities to mark May 30 as a Memorial Day in Igbo history. May 30 marks the day Biafra was declared and no patriotic Igbo son or daughter can pretend that Biafra is not part of the history and indeed the major water-shade in the history of the Igbo nation and the entire Igbo race and their Neighbors.
