Oko Community Committee at Alex Ekwueme Civic Center


The Oko community is set to display her cultural exhibits at the commissioning of the Alex Ekwueme Civic Center in Oko, Orumba North LGA by the Anambra State Governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, scheduled to be held at the center today.

Chairman of the event's media and public relations committee, Chief Ruben Muoka, said one such highlight was Nkwa Nkwa. Nukwa Nukwa, whose origins date back to the 19th century, is a women's dance group with distinctive performances, unique steps, and unique costumes.

The five villages that make up the community will be invited to participate in each village's cultural exhibition, with the best dance and music groups expected to participate.

“This event also serves as a repatriation platform for the Oko sons and daughters of the Diaspora in Nigeria. It marks a time of cultural renaissance in our community, home to the Federal Polytechnic, Oko. It will be,” Muoka said.

The dedication of the unique center will evoke the memory of former Vice President Alex Ekwueme. A huge bronze statue of him will also be unveiled by the Anamura State Governor.

For us, this event is a statement of Dr. Alex Ekwueme's multifaceted philanthropy in all parts of human life, especially his legacy to the community, region and nation. This is our own great way to celebrate Ide Oko, a unique person who also loves culture and works of art,” Muoka said.
