A stalwart of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) and the Senior Special Assistant to Governor Willie Obiano on APGA Affairs, Hon. Nnanna Nzewi on Saturday, 9th May 2020 at Umuogboo Obiofia Nnewichi Nnewi, in Nnewi North Local Government Area of Anambra State distributed bags of 5k rice, bags of 5k beans, cash gift, and numerous face masks.
Distributing the items at the Palace (Iba) of Obi Umuogboo, Hon. Nzewi enjoined all to master the art of giving, noting that it was in giving they would receive, adding that the situation at hand called for almsgiving, showing of compassion as well as genuine philanthropy.
Nzewi who is the Coordinator of APGA New Media Group called on sons and daughters of Umuogboo Obiofia Nnewichi and other individuals who were well-to-do individuals in Nnewi to support the poorest of the poorest in society financial and materially.
He admonished the beneficiaries to take solace in the fact that they were hale and hearty, emphasizing that many had died as result of what he described as a killer disease, urging them to endeavour to put on their face masks, wash their hands regularly, maintain social distancing, and also try as much as possible to shun crowded places or environment.
Hon. Nzewi while exhorting the beneficiaries thanked the leader, chairman Board of Trustees (BoT) of APGA and the Executive Governor of Anambra State, His Excellency, Chief Dr. Sir Willie Obiano (Akpokue dike global) for the opportunity given to him to serve in his government.
He commended the national chairman of APGA, Ozonkpu Dr. Victor Ike Oye (Ozochikwadolu Amawbia) what he said, Oye had done as the helmsman of the ruling party in Anambra State.
Speaking at his Obi, the Obi of Umuogboo, Chief Ezekiel Izuchukwu prayed God to continue to guide and protect Hon. Nnanna Nzewi whom he described as one of the leading lights in the community.
Earlier, the President General of Umuogbo Obiofia Nnewichi, Mr. Ikechukwu Okafor thanked Hon. Nzewi for his large-heartedness and grassroots oriented politics, stating that they would not forget in a hurry his kind gesture, especially at this material time.
The beneficiaries numbering over one hundred joined the priest In-charge of St. Joseph’s Anglican Church, Obiofia Nnewichi, Rev. Cannon Arinze Chukwunonso to pray for their benefactor, Hon. Nnanna Nzewi (Otabilionye nwanne ya).
Rev. Obika Dickson accompanied by Evangelist Christopher Chukwuemeka represented Rev. Cannon Arinze Chukwunonso at the occasion.
The sharing of the items saw St. Joseph’s Anglican Church and St. Charles Catholic Church, Obiofia Nnewichi producing 25 persons each, while other denominations, community chiefs, Umuogbo community Vigilante, people with disability, non indigenes of Umuogboo community and others took part in the sharing of the largesse.
In their separate speeches the former elected Councilor representing Nnewichi ward I, Hon. Wilson Izuchukwu, Mrs Ebele Udechukwu, youths of Umuogbo community took turns to shower praises on Hon. Nnanna Nzewi for his magnanimity and Think Home Philosophy.
The submission of the mandated presentation of face masks to the president general of Umuogbo, Mr. Ikechukwu Okafor by Hon. Nnanna Nzewi who was accompanied to the event venue by his immediate younger brother, Engr. Uchenna Nzewi (Uchman) formed the highpoint of the occasion.
It would be recalled that Hon Nnanna Nzewi few days ago embarked on a similar philanthropic gesture where he distributed same kind of food items and face masks to over 50 APGA party grassroots agents drawn from the 8 polling units in Awada community Obosi where he grew up and also gave a scholarship to little girl child who lost her dad in a ghastly motor accident few years ago.
