The Speaker of Abia State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon Engr. Chinedum Enyinnaya Orji has assured residents and indigenes of Amuzukwu Community in Umuahia North Local Government Area of the state, that construction work would soon begin on internal roads in the community before Christmas.
Orji who was the Special Guest of Honor at the Bawas/Doris Folake Uche (Ada Ibeku) Free Medical Outreach sponsored by Essential Plus Transportation Inc USA which held at the Methodist Church of Nigeria, Amuzukwu Ibeku, also promised the completion of work on the community’s health centre and mini stadium respectively.
In his speech, the Speaker said he was highly delighted with what he saw at the venue of the Outreach, saying it was a sign that the philanthropy of the benefactors were well accepted by the people.
“There is an elderly mother I saw here now with her blood pressure being checked. This is a good thing.
“He whom God has blessed should bless others. That’s what my elder brother, Chief Akwukwuegbu, is doing here today.
“Empowerment programmes are not just for one person. If we leave it to one person, the person will not survive. If you’re an entrepreneur fortunate to have been blessed with wealth, use it to reach out to others.
That’s the essence of our collective humanity. This is why God will continue to bless Chief Akwukwuegbu, his wife and children because they are committed to the good of humanity.
“I actually expected nothing less from them because of their spirit of philanthropy with which they have always been known.
“On my part, I will ensure that all necessary support is given for the completion of the health centre and mini stadium in Amuzukwu.
“I will also mobilise resources to grade your internal roads before the 25th of this month”, the Speaker said.
Chief Uche Akwukwuegbu (Bawas), in his welcome speech, said the free medical program was a way of giving back to society, and that the free medical outreach was for all irrespective of ethnicity, political affiliation or even religious consideration.
He said he was sure many lives will be touched through the outreach.
