Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has commended the decision of Ndigbo in Lagos State to relocate some of their businesses to the Southeastern states of Nigeria. The Vice President of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Chief Damian Okeke Ogene, praised the move, saying it is a timely response to the call by the state government and Ohaneze Ndigbo to embrace the “Think-Home-Philosophy” to secure their future.

Chief Okeke Ogene further urged Ndigbo living in other parts of the country to follow suit, to reduce the burden of loss suffered through targeted attacks in some parts of Nigeria. He emphasized that the Southeast has strategic and viable markets that can attract patronage from various parts of the world and contribute to the development of the region.

The recent bills signed by President Muhammadu Buhari, which have invested more powers in states for infrastructural development, were also lauded by Okeke Ogene. He stressed the need for quality roads that connect the states in the South East, international airports, railways and seaports to facilitate the expected high volume of trade and commerce.

He advocated for a stronger partnership between the government and the private sector on infrastructural development.

The commendation by Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide is a welcome development, as it encourages Ndigbo to invest in their homeland and contribute to the economic growth of the region.

The call for infrastructural development is also timely, as it is essential to have adequate infrastructure to support the expected high volume of trade and commerce. It is hoped that the government and private sector will work together to ensure that the necessary infrastructure is put in place to facilitate the growth of the Southeastern states of Nigeria.
