The Newly elected President of the Anambra State Association of traditional Prime Ministers (Ndionowu), Chief Godwin Okpalaeke, has assured that the association will continue to partner with the traditional rulers and other cultural proponents, to ensure that Igbo customs and traditions are sustained.
Chief Okpaleke, who spoke shortly after his recent election, noted that the traditional prime ministers as the political wing of the traditional rulers would continue to embark on programmes which would project various communities as well as showcase their culture and tradition positively.
The new president, who also spoke on elections, called on the people to participate in the ongoing continuous voters’ registration exercise so as to obtain their voters’ card and participate actively in the forthcoming Anambra State November 6, 2021 Governorship Election.
Chief Okpalaeke, who is the Traditional Prime Minister of Azia Community in Ihiala Local Government Area while thanking members of the association for the confidence reposed in him, paid glowing tributes to the late founder and former president of the association, Chief Dr. Anthony Enukeme of Neni. He promised to consolidate on the achievements already recorded by the association.
Okpaleke solicited for support from the members to enable him to achieve his mission and vision for the association.
In their various remarks the first Vice President of the association, Chief Patrick Oyediuba and the Secretary of the association, Chief Joe Nwegwu reassured that the group would create more awareness through sensitization so as to save the Igbo Language and culture from extinction.
