    Keynote Synopsis:

    Throughout the course of history, civilizations have always developed a keen sense of “self” as they strive to overcome limitations, be they individual or environmental. Technological advancements have been achieved when individuals and institutions identified an obstacle, set a goal of overcoming such an obstacle, and worked toward finding a solution to the obstacle. Ndi-Igbo, a very enterprising people of South-Eastern Nigeria, epitomize the human ability to overcome obstacles and to thrive under immense challenges.
