Sir Emeka Offor, was on Thursday honoured with an Honorary Citizenship of the State of Georgia in the U. S.

At a ceremony held in his honour, the Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus of the Georgia Parliament, Rep. Dee Dawkins, said Offor was honoured for his contributions in the fight against diseases in Africa and Nigeria in particular.

She commended Offor for his work and support in the alleviation of the sufferings of the less privileged through philanthropy thereby giving hope to those in need irrespective of tribe, creed, religion and nation.

Dawkins said Offor, through his Foundation, had impacted, positively on the lives of many Nigerians through its programmes and projects, which include Youth Empowerment, Widows Cooperative, Education and Health Services and Infrastructure Development.

Also speaking, former Senate President Ken Nnaman, said Offor believed that the very poor and needy could become active and productive members of society, which spurred him to commit his work to human and material capacity development.

He said that through his foundation the business mogul had so far committed more than N750 million to charitable projects.

Nnamani commended Offor for his various intervention programmes.

Also speaking, a former Minister of Defence Adetokumbo Kayode (SAN), thanked the State of Georgia for honouring a man, whom he said, has in the past 20 years dedicated his life and wealth to the service of his people.

Kayode said the honour was one of the best ways they could recognise and appreciate Offor, who had made a difference in the lives of the less-privileged.

In his remarks, Offor, thanked the members of parliament for the honour and promised to do more.

        ‘Oga you dont know Emeka offor that i have since i was a little boy more than me, there is a big possibility to only know him on the pages of newspaper. He is a bussiness man i know, i have known that since i was 10 years, and who told you are only corrupt when you hold public office, Buruji you mentioned never held any public office until now but he is one criminal the US is looking for. Good he is given back to the society but i can boldly say he’s stolen more than he is giving back. I rest my case.

            you are supposedly well exposed but unfortunately you don’t display attributes of someone who is exposed, we are talking of a man i know and you claim you know, all of a sudden you went tribal, what on earth is my biz with Buruji Kashamu, do you think i talked of my reservation of Emeka offor because of his tribe? you better change for good, nigeria is moving beyond tribal sentiments, though slowly but surely we are building a nation with no internal walls.
