Archbishop Anikwenwa who was former Bishop of Awka said war does not solve any problems rather it brings destruction explaining that a country without a history is not a country, noting that the restoration of history in schools will teach Nigerian children who they are.

The Prelate stressed the need for Ndigbo to unite and bring more development to the region.

In his comments, the Biafran war veteran, Major Madueke spoke on the importance of remembering the victims of the war especially the living and cautioned youths against instigating issues that may cause a repeat of the war.
