….Uche Ekwunife’s continuous activities and works despite the winding down of the year…
The end of every year usually sees a lot of people and organizations winding down their activities to wait for what the incoming New Year will bring. This is the tradition, almost all over the world. But in the case of the Senator representing Anambra Central Senatorial District, Distinguished Senator Uche Ekwunife, the tempo of working and activities are riding with spectacular results.
As Ndi Anambra rejoice with her for the conferment of another title from Ukpo Kingdom as Ihekaolaedo, a title so befitting of the Distinguished Senator, for all her spectacular accomplishments, she is celebrated for her unique understanding of the needs of her constituents which she always strives to meet at all times. It does not matter in what area; road infrastructure, school renovation and equipment, housing for the indigent, financial empowerment for distressed households, lighting up of various communities with solar powered street lights, creation of opportunities for the youth, etc, Iyom Ihekaolaedo stands out to satisfy the yearnings of her people. It is a long tradition from her days in the Banking Hall, through the Green Chambers, and now still excelling at the Red Chamber of the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
On Saturday, 18th December, 2021, the world stood in awe as the traditional ruler of Ukpo Kingdom, HRM Igwe Dr Robert Eze, (Okofia IV) conferred on her the prestigious title of Ihekaolaedo, quite a befitting title which if translated in English means “something better that Gold & Diamond”! Indeed the world has witnessed what is better than gold. In her works, actions, speeches, activities, family, with her constituents, Distinguished Senator Uche Ekwunife, Iyom, is indeed better than Gold.
She does all these things, with a knowledge that she is nothing without God, the Creator; who she always acknowledges as her source and Who has made it possible for her to get this far, believing that the best is yet to come.
Congratulations, Iyom Ihekaolaedo, and Merry Christmas to all Nigerians.
