May the spirits of those "Lost Igbos" walk beside you,
whisper to you, and guide you in your quest for
knowledge and wisdom.
Ma'zi Equiano described himself as a "stranger in a
strange land." As strangers in Canada, I commend you
for providing an opportunity for Umu Igbo to know
their brothers and sisters. Ndi b'anyi si na njiko ka,
mmadu ka e ji aba.
Igbo Kwenu!
