Every time I come homeI runintoone business out fit or the otherowned or run by a Nenwerian, I meet numerous Nenwe professionals in many fields doing us and Nigeria proud intheir respective areas; engineering , medical , production, business/marketing, education, agric, finance, civil service, religious fields etc . So many of these peopleare not known bya good cross section of ourpeople.
As our(NOL) 10th year anniversary draw near (August 8) and we plan to celebrate in different ways I would liketo create an ONLINE Nenwe business directoryas my personalgift to NOL & members for their great contributions in these 10 years of our collectiveexperienceand journey. The publications will first of all be on ourportals NOL, NOL blog, NOL fb & other NenweFB pages, etc then later we create its is own page or portal.
I shall start with those I know or have visited while I wait for other members to mail whatever or whoeverhe/she would like to be added are advertise. Full modalities will be sent in my next mail.
The endpoint is to know/promote ourselves at national and international arena.
We, want to thank all of you who stood firm with us and offered us a lot encouragement and suggestions. Particularly, we acknowledge the President of NIU Jos Branch, Ugo Nweke of NPA UK, Chief Cyril Oleh, the Okwuru Oha, and Dr. Cosmas Onuora, Onwa Na Etili Ora. These people did not just wish us success in spirit, they also took out time to express it in writing.
We are indebted to those who found time and resources to be here, live in Atlanta.
We are equally grateful for the numerous phone calls with words of encouragement, the adverts and numerous other contributions.
This is equally a reminder that our books are still open for your support, financial or otherwise.
I will be signing off from NPAUSA user group to start preparation for a live feed broadcast of the occasion. A link will be provided soon. Follow the link and you will be part of this one of a kind gathering.
One of those events you can’t miss. Attending Angelicas’graduation: Sheis ‘many things’ tomenot minding the fact thatshe doesn’t know meby person and Iwouldn’t haverecognized heranywhere; thereforeamidst high schedules I hadtobepresent.
I was one of the last to arrive at thevenue but strangely myself and the persons that were accompanyingme from the office werebeckonedto the reserved front seats. I wondered why commissioners, high ranked army officers, air force officers and men, Alhajis from the north and some Igwes should seat behind me. Nenwe bu miri…you will know later.
Our daughter Angelica was gorgeous and made us proud. She won two ‘best student awards’ in English Language and Literature. One wouldn’t be happier and I couldn’t stop remembering how CHRIS (rip) was also so wonderful in those subjects during our school time.
Another award went to the V P of the institution Mrs. Okwuosa (Our own Corde Onuora) whowas also the chairperson of the graduation committee. ‘A great motor to everything thathappens in the school’ as thedirector put it.
When I looked at the program I saw a certain Prof Alimba. He was seated at thehigh tableand ‘co chairing’ theshow, I told my friendsthat should be a name from my ‘enclave’. When I went to greet Mrs Okwuosa therewas also Okey Alimba..the Prof. I wasvery proudof Nenwe.
Louis Orji (whose daughter won an award at her time) and Nike Chukwu were also there.
At the closing remarks by the director of the school people were told to emulate thekind gestureof Air Vice Marshal Chukwu (absent, but fully represented)who donated generously manyitemsto the institutions.
