Igwe Egwuonwu made the call at his Umuawulu palace while reacting to the growing call to boycott the consumption of imported cows to Igbo land.

According to the royal father, research should be intensified to find out the necessary food supplements and condition under which the Igbo cows will be bred for mass production and sales.

He suggested that people should embrace agriculture to enhance food production, job creation and the diversification of the source of income of the citizenry.

Igwe Egwuonwu who expects the ndigbo to go back to their root to work towards the promotion of their cultural heritage,  urged traditional rulers and all well-meaning Igbo citizens to utilise their community’s new yam festivals to promote the Igbo Language and culture.

He announced that the Umuawulu Community traditionally celebrates its new yam festival on every last Saturday in September to promote the Igbo cultural heritage.

On the state of the HABA Bridge in Umuawulu, Igwe Egwuonwu expressed delight that the state government has yielded to the demand of the community to rehabilitate the bridge and fix the portion of the road leading to St. Joseph’s  Catholic Church, Umuawulu being ravaged by erosion.
