Receiving the Ikenga after Delivering FUTO Convocation Lecture

The University Orator called it “brilliant”, “excellent”, and a “a great convocation lecture” in the university history. Yet, when I was in FUTO (Federal University of Technology Owerri), as an undergraduate, I listened to a really great one. Prof. Joseph Chike Edozien, the Asagba  of Asaba, came from MIT to deliver a University Lecture.

While in a meeting with the World Bank and FUTO management last week , the news is FUTO has digitized these lectures, and are available in the digital library. So, if you are in FUTO, the speech is there now. But I have the Ikenga – the symbol of strength, excellence and resilience – here in America!
