The 23rd annual convention of Ogbakor Ikwerre USA, Inc. held successfully at the Dallas Fort Worth International Airport Marriott Hotel in Irving Texas and was hosted by the Ogbakor Ikwerre Dallas group. The 2019 convention which ran from May 24-26 was themed; “Ikwerre first: Revisiting our core values and redefining our social obligations for the development of Ikwerre land”. The three-day event featured executive meetings, town hall conference, youth and children events and tours, reception dance party and a gala night among others.
OIUSA is a community based non-profit representation group of Ikwerre indigents with no affiliation to any domestic or foreign political organization. The organization is a single entity with no chartered regional chapters; although, members are encouraged to congregate among themselves in their local communities worldwide. One of the objectives of OIUSA is to organize charitable activities that enhance the economic, health and educational well-being of Ikwerre and other communities.
