TO firm up their agenda for the forthcoming National Conference, Igbo leaders will meet in Enugu on Sunday.

Holding at the Banquet Hall of the Governor’s Lodge at 12.30 p.m., Igbo leaders expected at the parley include the five South-East governors, Igbo leaders in the National Assembly, ministers and political leaders of the South-East geo-political zone.

Meanwhile, Vanguard learnt, yesterday, that the zone had picked a strong team of 30 men and women, whose names have been submitted to the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation as delegates to the confab.

Speaking on the issue, Ohanaeze Secretary General, Dr. Joe Nwaogu told Vanguard, yesterday, that the apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation picked 15 of the 30 delegates while the governors nominated the rest with each of the five states having six slots.

Asked those nominated, he said that Ohanaeze President General, Chief Gary Igariwey would disclose those on the list, adding, “the President-General has the prerogative to make the list public.”
