Amaechi, Anomneze Shower Encomium on OZB for Empowering Constituents

Rep. Ozurigbo Ugonna has been showered with encomium of gratitude following the recently concluded second phase of the OZB Economic Empowerment.

The member representing the Nkwerre/Isu/Nwangele/Njaba federal constituency at the National Assembly had on the 30th of June 2020 launched the OZB Economic Empowerment which saw 50 women from the Constituency receive Food Grinding Machines and seed money as part of the initiative to make entrepreneurs of the women.

The second phase of the Empowerment took place on the 1st of August, 2020 with 108 persons becoming beneficiaries.

95 motorcycles, 11 tricycles and 2 minibuses found new owners who are expected to use them to help sustain their families following the hardship brought about by the Coronavirus pandemic.

Speaking to our reporter, a South Africa based business woman, Lolo Amaka Amaechi commended Hon. Ozurigbo for his life impacting Empowerment.

She did not express surprise at the timing of the Empowerment noting that right from his years at the State Assembly he has always shown exemplary capacity to fulfill his promises to the people, on time, for which reason she was endeared to him and has since supported him.

"I cannot feign surprise at the recent Empowerment carried out by my Federal House member. He is a man I have known for a couple of years now and I can say that he has not for one day disappointed nor failed to execute his campaign promises." Mrs Amaechi stated.

Speaking for the people of Amaigbo Ward 5 where she is a major stakeholder, Ijele as she is fondly called, conveyed the gratitude of recipients from her ward pointing that his benevolence will be repaid a thousand folds.

"On behalf of Beatrice, Chika and Venatius who received Motorcycles and a minibus I appreciate Enyioha Gburugburu for finding them worthy of being beneficiaries because I believe that their lives will be changed automatically as they can now easily move around as well as fend for themselves by joining the lucrative transport sector if they choose.'

Barr. Ken Anomneze also eulogized the lawmaker for showing exemplary leadership in the manner with which he has been operating.

"Never in the history of political representation, have we, the constituents of Nkwerre/Isu/Nwangele/Njaba Federal Constituency had it this good. Hon. Ugonna is God sent and sees politics as an opportunity to give, give and give, without segregation, to our people."

The Abba born lawyer recounted the several projects the House Committee Chairman on Justice had embarked on to secure development for his constituency stating that they are life changing opportunities devoid of favouritism or vindictiveness and without a barrier of age or class as several young individuals have benefitted unlike the norm in the past.

The OZB Economic Empowerment is composed of 10 phases of which two have already been concluded; Skills empowerment, Entrepreneurial trainings, scholarships and disbursement of soft loans will also form part of the empowerment which will be undertaken before the end of the tenure. read more
