My wife Chidinma Chidoka dancing with members of her age grade KOSISOCHUKWU Age-grade
I also had a group picture with my Age-grade AMALACHUKWU Age-grade.
The age grade system was the key executive arm of igbo communities. From security to road construction to law enforcement, the age grades helped build our community ethos.
The Age-grade system is one institution that needs rethinking and reimagining. Its many values and positive outcomes needs to be aligned with current challenges. It is a key pillar of inclusive and liveable community.
Hopefully, my age grade will unveil our community project next year. We want to be remembered by our work in the community despite harsh economic headwinds.
If you are not a member of your age grade in your community please join and contribute to building liveable communities around Igboland.
