While speaking at the launch of “The Land of my Birth,” a book written by Abraham Nnadi in Lagos, veteran Nollywood actress, Onyeka Onwenu, praised the Igbos as a group of survivors following their experience of the civil war.
“Land of my Birth is a book that provokes nostalgia feelings. As a people, we read about ourselves, what we went through during the civil war and thereafter.
“But, particularly, the book speaks to Ndigbo of what we had gone through and have continued to go through in this country. We are never a people that will accept defeat. Having gone through hardship and deprivation, we have remained stronger. So, as survivals, Ndigbo the world over should rise up and just keep going forward.“
