John Igoche conferred with Chieftaincy title

By Sunday ITODO

In recent times, it has been the norm of the people of various ethnic backgrounds to honour illustrious and outstanding members of the society, who have distinguished themselves among the comity of people or in their chosen careers.

Such honours could come in form of presentation of award of excellence; casting votes for the individual during elections; conferment of chieftaincy title; among others. These are usually done without bias and with utmost sincerity of heart, as a mark of reward and acknowledgement of the contributions of such a recipient to the society.

The late literary icon, Chinua Achebe once said that “it is better to celebrate a man when he is still alive and can appreciate it than bringing a cow to his funeral”.

This must have informed the decision of Ai-Oji Family Development Association, Abuja branch, when they turned out in their numbers to celebrate one of their own, Chief John Adikwu Igoche with the title of ‘Ojema 1 of Ai-Oji’.
