    So, has this group of Igbo leaders just woken up to their responsibility or is this a knee-jerk reaction to a seeming threat to their ‘authority’ in Igboland?
    It is pertinent to state clearly that these leaders must be careful in their current assertive line of action, because the ordinary Igbo masses are already disgruntled and disorientated with their unspeakable ineptitude and lack of direction, in the recent past.
    So, their ultimate duty should be to find out and articulate what the Igbo masses truly want, and not to arrogate infinite knowledge to themselves and going on to foist their individual choices and preferences on Ndigbo. It’s very obvious to anyone who can discern that the fear of Nnamdi Kanu is behind this rare type of meeting which has never been convened before for the purpose of crafting any people-oriented development programme. You must look before you leap, in these present times.
