“But thank God for Ghana Cultural Games Association for this initiatives. They  have come out to promote African indigenous  games. A time has come when we must promote our own games so that they could also feature  in international  games like Olympic and the commonwealth games.

Come 2022, Ghana would be hosting  All African Games and when you look at the entire lists, no single indigenous African game is included, Today  the association  has come out with spectacular  games that will feature during that event.  I urged all African traditional  rulers to come out with games that will feature  alongside other western games”, he said.

Furthermore, HRM Ihenetu who is also the Assistant Publicity Secretary Association of Ndieze Ndigbo in the Diaspora said one of his principal responsibility as paramount King of Ndigbo in Ghana is to promote and project Igbo culture positively adding that the move was already yielding the desired results.
