What People
Say About Us

‘Nkata Umu Ibe’, a programme of the Centre for Memories has become a very profitable platform to recollect our fundamental characteristic as a people, revise and rehabilitate our history and promote Igbo Language, Culture and way of life

Chief John Nnia Nwodo,

“I appreciate the Centre for Memories for putting such a repository of our history as Igbo people. As a youth who never experienced the Civil War, I have been taken back memory lane and it has been an experience I can never forget as an Igbo person. Thank you CFM.”


"I want to express my profound gratitude to the Centre for Memories Museum for inculcating more knowledge in me about the Biafra War."


"I love the Centre for Memories. This is exactly what we need. I am going to bring my children here. Igbo culture will live forever!"
