On Saturday Nov 16 2019, I was honored as the special guest of honor at the book launch and official opening of the secretariat of the prestigious Agbalanze Society of Onitsha.
This is a society that has spanned the ages as revealed in the new book "Agbalanze Cultural Society of Onitsha: Origin and development" and I used the opportunity to thank Ndi Onitsha for acceding to my request when I sought their votes whilst reaffirming my belief in human capital development as the most powerful tool for community development.
I expressed regret at the fact that no higher institution can now be located in Onitsha for non availability of land and promised to work in partnership with Agbalanze to reface and bring back the past glory of Onitsha.
I then called on the leadership of Agbalanze to liaise with the Onitsha community to provide a land for the immediate building of a world class ICT hub and innovation village.
It was indeed a beautiful event and I must thank Nwachi Idu Okosi for representing me as I was called up for an important engagement at the very last minute.
