The Co- Founder of Wazobia Global Network, Publishers of Wazobia Global Times Newspaper and WGT Magazine, Temitope Omotayo has restated his commitment to the peaceful coexistence of all Nigerians and Africans at large irrespective of their diverse cultural, religious or ethnic diverse. He made this known on Saturday, September 30, 2017 at the Igbo Cultural Association of Michigan meeting where he formally became a registered member of this prestigious umbrella body of all Igbo provincial organizations in Michigan.
“I have worked so hard over the years in my own little way to foster unity in diversity at home and abroad. Our diversity should be seen as our strength and I am of the belief that there is a reason behind our coexistence, let us use these reasons to our advantage”
Imperial Chief (Dr.) Ikenna Duru, President of Igbo Cultural Association of Michigan, while introducing Mr. Temitope Omotayo to the entire members of the Association had this to say, “It is a very symbolic and historic in the sense that Temitope Omotayo, who is Yoruba by birth, has indicated his readiness to become a member of Igbo Cultural Association of Michigan and I am so glad that we are all witnesses to this.”
Temitope Omotayo also took part in the breaking of kola nut with other members of the Igbo Cultural Association of Michigan. The elated new member thanked all the members of the Association for the honor promising to work with the leadership and members in their quest towards moving the Association forward.
Many of the dignitaries at the meeting include Imperial Chief (Dr.) Ikenna Duru, (Akunaepuome) who is the President and Eze Ndi Igbo, Hon. Chief Titus Amadi, President of Nigerian Foundation of Michigan(NFOM) Hon. Ben Nwachukwu, the General Secretary, Hon. Chief Nnamudi Ogbuefi, the Public Relations Officer, High Chief & Lolo Matt Obi, Chief Osuji, Chief (Dr.) and Lolo Onyebuchi, Prince Ama, Hon.

As we celebrate Nigeria’s 57th independence anniversary, it is very expedient that Nigerians and Africans at large all over the world remember that peace remains a panacea for meaningful development, let us look at ways we can use our diversity as a strength. We are better, stronger and greater together so we have a duty to shun those whose aim is to destabilize us.
