Hon. Muorah went on to thank Mr. Ozigbo for always being at the forefront of every positive innovation in Amesi, urging other illustrious sons of the town to follow suit.

Also speaking at the event, Prince Greg Ezechukwu, the coordinator of “Save-Our-Soul” Fundraising, thanked Ozigbo and other sons and daughters of Amesi for their support in the actualization of feeding eight hundred (800) impoverished residents of Amesi community.

Prince Ezechukwu remarked that “after we had fed our people, the urge to provide adequate security to the community by this administration gained ascendancy and became indispensably palpable.”
