King Jaja of Opobo Kingdom–Settling the Opobo-Igbo Heritage once and for all
Please read the great testimony from none other than this illustrious daughter an Igbo daughter from Opobo kingdom Dr. Tina Edmunds-OGBUOKIRI (Nee EZIE) who came forward to tell those who have often told us that Igboland is landlocked, when our brethren sisters and brothers from Opobo are quietly clinging tight to their Igbo heritage. Read the testimony below in Tina’s own words

My  dear Brethren and Compatriots,

It is a great blessing to be IGBO!
I can tell you a million and one reasons why I relish being IGBO!
In my next twenty lifetimes, I would love to still remain IGBO!
We are like the Jews. Anytime a group is persecuted, guess what?, they become stronger in virtually all aspects of life.

My story will be short because I have clients (HIV-infected professionals and non-HIV clients) waiting for me.
I remember going to Opobo in the company of my late father, Chief Sir Edmund Obizukowa EZIE, the late town clerk of Portharcourt Municipality from 1960 to about (not exactly sure now) 1964. We visited the compound of the historical and beloved KING JAJA of Opobo. My dad told us that the late king hailed from AMAIGBO in Orlu and was the father/founder  of Opobo.
Opobo, Ahoada and many of these areas are IGBO.
Please do not disgrace God by renouncing your IGBO HERITAGE!!
Instead, please remain proud of it.
