He said that Iwuanyanwus endorsement by the youth wing was borne out of a sincere conviction that he was the right person to steer the sheep of the Igbo nation to the safest waters.
According to him, Iwuanyanwus leadership will usher in a period of positive development in Igbo land in the areas of education, sports, security and economic emancipation, among others.
