The Igbo Union of Canada wishes to announce the appointment of a new Executive Management Group (EMG) that was inaugurated last Sunday March 22, 2015 at the Driftwood Community Centre, North York, Ontario.
In a short, but impressive swearing in ceremony conducted by two members of the Igbo Elders Forum, Chief Victor Amaechi and Chief Paul Okoro, the new Executives pledged to work for the service, goals and aspirations of the Igbo people in Canada and to preserve the unity, dignity and reputation of the Igbo Union of Canada.
The new Executives will pilot the affairs of the Union for the next two years: 2015 – 2017 and the Igbo community wishes them all the best in their new community service endeavours.
