… Tasks association on empowerment of members
The Transition Committee member representing Oko Ward 2 in Orumba North Local Government Area, Hon. Chukwujekwu Ezeokoye has congratulated the United Business Women Association of Nigeria and Diaspora, UBWA, Orumba North chapter on the trophy that it won at the Basilica of the Most Holy Trinity Field, Onitsha, Anambra State recently.
It will be recalled that the Orumba North chapter of the association won 3rd position at the inauguration of the 21 Local Government Area chapters of the association in Anambra State.
Speaking at a ceremony to launch the trophy won by UBWA which held at St. Peter’s Catholic Church, Oko on Sunday, Hon. Ezeokoye who doubled as the Chairman of the occasion, thanked the women for making Orumba North Local Government proud during their outing.
His words, “I want to salute you, it’s not easy. I am aware that there were twenty one local government areas in Anambra State and for those of you who were not there, if you were at the Holy Trinity Field that very day, the whole field was filled to capacity. You went there and made us proud and wrote the name of our local government, Orumba North in gold. Assuming you didn’t win any trophy, nobody would have known that Orumba North made it to the inauguration.
“I want to say that it is we the people of Orumba North Local Government that you made proud on that very day and the glory came through you people. In your last outing, you secured third position but I am convinced that in your next outing, you will take first position and it will announce you people. I was proud of you people the day I joined you at the Holy Trinity Field, Onitsha.”
Speaking on over two thousand women who had so far been empowered financially by UBWA, Orumba North chapter, the Transition Committee member urged the association not to relent adding that if they could bring themselves together under one umbrella, they should continue in that direction as it would assist in the development of the local government, Anambra State and the country in general.
“Don’t expect government to do everything for you because government no longer have the capacity to do everything but as you assemble yourselves together like this, you will in this way assist the government in human and community development”, he urged.
Earlier in her welcome address, the Coordinator, United Business Women Association of Nigeria and Diaspora, UBWA, Orumba North chapter, Hon. Amb. Mrs. Chinyere Nwaokafor revealed that since its creation two years ago, UBWA Orumba North chapter with over four hundred registered women members had become a beacon of light to women in the local government.
She pointed out that the chapter had empowered over two thousand women financially adding that “the trophy won at the inauguration of twenty one LGA if Anambra State where we took 3rd position which we celebrate today is a testament to the efforts and strides of the Orumba North chapter of UBWA in human development.”
“On this note, I indulge you to dare the difference and join hands together with UBWA in transforming the lives of Orumba women which is a step in rewriting the tomorrow of our children, Ndi Anambra, the Southeast and Nigeria as a whole. You will not be disappointed because when women shine like the sun, their radiance will be forever undimmed”, she added.
Highlights of the events were cutting of cake, match past by the UBWA members as well as launch of the trophy.
