The Alaigbo Youth Forum is holding on December 18 and 19 in Owerri, Imo State and is expected to be a gathering of leading Igbo lights in the professions expected to showcase Igbo excellence and celebrate accomplishments across the world and Ada Anambra had been invited to join one of the panel discussions.
Following the elections, Ada Anambra has now been appointed as the National Program Manager for the Renewed Hope Shelter Program by the Honourable Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation Dr. Betta Edu.
