A great Ebonyi Philanthropist, Chief Ama Orji, otherwise known as ‘Ochiri’, has been bathed in the ocean of eulogies as he celebrates his birthday.
Ochiri who hails from Edda clan under Afikpo Local Government Area of Ebonyi State, has touched positively, the lives of many, where Ebonyians, including his native people were not left to fate.
The prove to these praises were seen in the expressions of his friends, especially on Facebook, where his reputation as a philanthropist and a focused business guru, was laid bare.
Going further on Facebook, Larry Ugorji Jr referred to Chief Ama as a wealthy man whose virtue of humility knows no bound, adding that he is not a failure when it comes to supporting people.
Larry wrote thus:
“HUMILITY IS A VIRTUE EVEN IN WEALTH”.
“OCHIRI’S HUMILITY, LOVE, PEACE APPROACH AND FORGIVENESS ARE MASSIVE
“The significance of today is beyond your birthday. It’s a celebration of an astute lover of peace, Humility dignified, and loved by all
“We are thankful for all your gracious support and pray that, you will be graced with many more fruitful years filled with sound health and peace
“This years has been eventful. Of a truth, Man is God to man. Ochiri Through the Good and Hard times, You’ve been steadfast and have NEVER FAILED…
“Best wishes #OchiriOzua Worldwide
Happy birthday Uncle Jay.”
However, another Facebook friend, Emmanuel Igwe, besides Philanthropist described him as the ‘pride of Edda’, a father, a leader and a man of Justice.
“Happy birthday to the pride of Edda, our Father, our leader and a seasoned philanthropist. A Man whose entrance into Ebonyi state politics gave ndi Edda a new face, a new hope a new confidence and he changed the 2nd class perception into 1st class.
“We are are proud of You Sir, where u stand is where we will stand because we are sure u will never stand for injustices, Keep living in Good health and wisdom.
Happy birthday Ochiri Ozuo World wide.”
AKELICIOUS observed from the words of John Uduma, that Ochiri founded an NGO known as Golden-Julius Foundation (GJF) through which he offered assistance to people and as well joined in the fight against the spread of COVID-19 pandemic across the globe.
“Happy birthday to you, father among father’s, the great face of the 72 village in Edda, I wish you long life, happy birthday to you once again
“Chief Julius Ama Orji is a successful business and founder Golden-julius Foundation (GJF) a non-governmental organization. He has through the foundation offered scholarships to indigent students, orphans, and empowered youths and widows in Edda communities and beyond.
“During the out break of Covid-19, the foundation
distributed over 5000 bags of rice and other food items worth millions of Naira to the indigent and less privileged people of Nguzu and Ebiri communities in Afikpo South local government area of the state.
It also distributed over 3000 pieces of facemasks and sanitizers to the people to help them protect themselves from the spread of the virus.” Uduma stated.
The words of Princess Ijeoma Nkasiobi made no difference as she described him as kind, virtuous, caring, smart, jovial, humble, strong, loyal and gentle, whereas other friends, home and abroad, too numerous to mention, also extended their Goodwill messages to the Chief.
