Also honoured was the representative of Njaba State Constituency in the House of Assembly, Uju Onwudiwe (Igolo Njaba) at a ceremony attended by the governor’s wife, Ugonneoma Nkechi Okorocha, who represented her husband, Speaker of the House of Assembly, represented by his Deputy, Ugonna Ozuruigbo, and other lawmakers from Imo, Edo, Jigawa and Benue states.
There were also the governor’s Chief of Staff, Uche Nwosu, Uche Mbanaso and the Acting Vice Chancellor, Imo State University, Owerri, Prof. Adaobi Obasi, among others.
In his homily during the mass at St. Paul’s Catholic Church, according to a statement by Onwudiwe’s Legislative Aide, Anthony Akalugo, the Parish Priest, Rev. Fr. Joseph Alaekwe, admonished Okorocha to focus on further delivering the dividends of democracy to the state.
He thanked God for the success of his parishioner, Onwudiwe, at the state Assembly polls, and the governor for his support, while commending all stakeholders, including the All Progressives Congress (APC) for believing in her.
Alaekwe further paid special tribute to her husband, Innocent Chinna Onwudiwe, for giving full backing and trust, noting that by so doing, he has shred the male chauvinism endemic in the council and taught all men in the constituency to encourage their wives’ potentials.
