Information reaching  Ifeanyicy.com has it that, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu today at his father's royal country home received in a warmth embrace, his brother and friend, the former Governor of Imo state, His Excellency, Chief Ikedi Ohakim.

Dr. OHAKIM who will be delivering lecture tomorrow Tuesday 23rd May, 2017 at the Institute of African Studies, University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN) on the life and times of the late literary icon, Prof. Chinua Achebe, four years after his death, the healthy discussion with Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was therefore thoughtful and apt.

The public lecture to be delivered by our very own Dr. Ikedi Ohakim where he will bare his scholarly prowess on the topic "The Igbo and the leadership question: the Achebe example" before the gathering of lovers of knowledge and Igbo intelligentsia at the First ever Chinua Achebe International Conference, one of the highlights will be the official opening of Prof. Chinua Achebe's office at UNN which was last opened in 1990 when Achebe celebrated his  birthday.

The intellectual colossus who spent all his life in promoting, defending and teaching Igbo nay African tradition and culture to the rest of the world will be immortalized and institutionalized as a global literary oracle and African literary hero where a museum will also be named after him at the prestigious ground of University of Nigeria, Nsukka.
