WHO ARE WE?

Greater Umueri Liberation Forum (GULF) is a liberation Association of descendants of Umueri sons and daughters who willingly and voluntarily want to liberate their town from cultural and institutional marginalization in scheme of things and to ensure that the town takes its rightful place in Igbo social cultural history as the "CRADLE OF IGBO RACE". Membership is opened to all citizens and natives of Umueri in Anambra East of Anambra State, (including their spouses and descendants ) irrespective of political affiliation and hence its a non political, non governmental and not for profit making Organization  that tends to protect the culture(Odinani) & tradition(ive di n' umueri)  from been wiped out or liquidated.

OUR VISION:

Our Vision in GULF is to ensure cultural consciousness and awareness amongst the people of Umueri that would invariably leads to continuous cultural and general development of the town.

OUR MISSION:

This Forum also tends to seek to revive, retain and modify where necessary those aspects of Umueri culture and civilization that would tend to be a vehicle for change for our people both home and in diaspora.

OUR IMMEDIATE STRATEGY:

In Gulf we believed that an uninformed mind is nothing but a deformed one and hence, we intend to launch cultural awareness of programme to safeguard the Umueri rich cultural heritage and history through publication of Blog,websites,write up as well as organizing seminar, talk shop etc that would aid towards liberating umueri from its present socio-cultural predicament.

Apart from ensuring that our culture would not be wipe out or liquidated, this Organization also tends to ensure that there is brotherly feelings amongst components clans and villages that make up Umueri as the popular adage has it that "anyuko mamiri onu, ogba uvuvu"- which  implies that "united we stand"

This brotherliness could be achieved through the GULF strategic Idea of having a broad based umueri online discussion forum where issues could be debated and ironed out in a more diplomatic manner .The Association also endeavour to create Sound bodies for sound minds and achieve excellence in all human activities and also improvement in members welfare.
