Mowu: Ije Okpoko na Ogwumagana, nkanka akpa na esi anuanu, Enuchie ide, Idejiogwugwu, ga-ga n‘ogwu, Aku gbajiri ogwe, Inyiagba oku, Otokono yolu ohia, Anu aworo, A ga mevu adi nma na aju, nwaogwugwu naeri oke ehi, Mmumulili 0 yolu iheyolku enyi, ofia ahuru agu, Ukobo adighi naUe, Agbadiokoni, Ulo naama envi, Egbe na uhie, Udene igwe, Ome anu, Okuchi ,w ata ngene! These addresses summarize the wisdom and philosophy of the Mowu institution. Mowu is a sociological, philosophical and theological phenomenon, quantum of commensality and communion between the living and the dead. Mmuonwu is a living spirit force instituted by God to establish a perfect man on earth. Mmuonwu is a melting pot that generates forces from the dead, the living and the divine. Mowu is a spiritual force that manifests the quiddity (essential quality) of human lfe and living. Maa: is a force that depicts continuity, connectivity and inter relativity of noble forces hat direct man to the path of doing in the world. The whatness of Mowu (Mmanwu) institution remains a valid consequence through the ancient to the modern time. But unfortunately some today’s youths have so recklessly and dangerous abused it by using it for negative and non productive activities. Today many youths are making frantic efforts to defile the sanity and sanctity of Mowu. It behooves the elders, elites, and good people to redirect the present negative application of Mowu in our communities to a sacred institution meant to restore the dignity of the Igboman.
