Editor’s Note
                                  For the first time the Igbere Progressive Association International (IPAI) convention program
                                  is upgraded from brochure to a biennial magazine. This is aimed at expanding our global reach
                                  by providing opportunity for Igbere people across the world to express their ideas, share their
                                  knowledge and expertise and support the development of Igbere Community.
                                           Having solicited from the general public to support the IPAI Convention 2009 by plac-
                                  ing an Ad on this event program magazine; those listed on Ad index responded to IPAI solici-
                                  tation to support IPAI in this way. Those who could not respond would have better reasons to
                                  do so in subsequent edition. However, we pray that God would provide for those who desired
                                  to place an Ad but could not due to financial reasons, and at the same time bless and multiply
                                  the financial resources of those who made this extraordinary sacrifice to donate to IPAI in this
                                  way. Your donation is highly appreciated.
                                           This magazine is a very vital resource, as it contains information that promotes
businesses, special events, introduces families, showcases personal profile, and congratulates friends and/or organizations. It also
contains articles and a platform to connect with Igbere people across the world. It is the widest print publication relating to Ig-
bere Event. Relax and enjoy reading the articles, looking at the pictures and patronize the businesses listed on this magazine.
        Support IPAI and Igbere Community now and forever. Let us all strive to make Igbere Community better!

            Nigeria National Anthem                                                   United States National Anthem
Arise, O compatriots, Nigeria’s call obey                            O say , can you see, by the dawn’s early light,
To serve our fatherland                                              What so proudly we hail’d at the twilight’s last gleaming?
With love and strength and faith                                     Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thro’s the perilous fight
                                                                     O’er the ramparts we watch’d, were so gallantly streaming?
The labor of our heroes past
                                                                     And the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Shall never be in vain
                                                                     Gave proof thro’ the night that our flag was still there.
To serve with heart and might                                        O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
One nation bound in freedom, peace and unity.                        O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

Oh God of creation, direct our noble cause;                          ..............
Guide our leaders right;                                             ...........
Help our Youth the truth to know                                     .............
In love and honesty to grow
And living just and true                                             ...........
Great lofty heights attain                                           ..........
                                                                     .........
To build a nation where peace and justice shall reign.
                                                                     O thus be it ever when free-men shall stand
NIGERIA NATIONAL PLEDGE                                              Between their lov’d home and the war’s desolation;
I pledge to Nigeria my country                                       Blast with victory and peace, may the heav’n-rescued land
To be faithful, loyal and honest                                     Praise the pow’r that hath made and preserv’d us a nation!
To serve Nigeria with all my strength                                Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
                                                                     And this be our motto: In God is our trust!”
To defend her unity and uphold her honor and glory                   And the star-spangled banner in trumph shall waive
So help me God                                                       O’er the land of the free and the land of the brave!

As a continuing legacy, we of the Igbere Progressive Association International (IPAI) are proud to reflect, co-exist, and forge ahead as
                                    Igbere indigenes. We reflect on the positive actions taken by our parents in the past to form sustain-
                                    ing organizations that guide and improve the community, we co-exist with one another for our good
                                    citizens today and tomorrow. With God’s help in all these, we forge a better future for our children
                                    with enthusiasm.

                                    This legacy begun by our parents and passed down to us created the proper environment. An envi-
                                    ronment created by their incessant attempts at uniting the community, forming co-operatives, shar-
                                    ing ideas and resources and providing the tools in education, training and trade apprenticeship.
                                    These and many other efforts laced with discipline laid the foundations to prepare Igbere indigenes
                                    for the good life. They helped to prepare off springs for even brighter future.

The touch that our past threw our way is a charge to action. This charge has not been given or received without challenges. IPAI has
faced some of these challenges with equanimity and grace. With imbued spirit of forgiveness and egos subsumed under the service of
our people, IPAI like Igbere emerges stronger through these challenges.

Thanks to all of you who have contributed to the success of our community and this organization and continue to sacrifice in time, cash
and kind to keep then going. Friends, neighbors, in-laws, associate members, members, compatriots and certainly the executives of
IPAI, we appreciate you. More so, we are happy to welcome all and sundry for coming from over the globe to celebrate with us.

On behalf of the board of directors of IPAI, I extend very warm hands of friendship and fraternity to you. May we pass this legacy to
others with the patriotic zeal of our heritage! God’s blessing.

Chairman, IPAI Board of Directors
