Ndi Igbo: We Have Enough To Accommodate All Of Us

….the Rotech Energy Services Ltd is achieving with Akuluouno philosophy of Chief Willie Obiano…..

When I saw the mindless demolition of very beautiful houses, ostensibly owned by Ndi Igbo, in Lagos, I could not control my emotions. I have tried to find out the reason for such demolition. The closest I could find is that the land belonged to Federal Housing Authority, FHA.

I wondered, even if the land belongs to them, did those who acquired the land take the necessary steps to verify the veracity of the land they are acquiring? I have not gotten an answer, yet.

However, my purpose in this article is to admonish ndi Igbo, to “Think Home“. This was a policy enunciated by His Excellency, Dr Chukwuemeka Ezeife, Okwadike, when he served as Governor of Anambra State. Actually, many bought into his policy and started acquiring property to develop in and around Awka. He established the Udoka Housing Estate to give our people the comfort they need to have a place they can call theirs within Anambra State, aside their home towns. It worked magic. Today, many Ndi Anambra own properties in Udoka and other Estates that have sprang up in Anambra State, and they don’t stay here. But it encouraged them to have a mind of home wherever they are domiciled.

Other Governors have emulated Okwadike’s Think Home philosophy. Today we have Ngozika face 1 and 2 and many other Housing Estates are springing up speedily within the State. This is a good testimonial for those who have eyes on the development of Anambra State.

Let me use this medium to eulogies a determined son of Anambra State, who under this present Governor Obiano regime was the first to pioneer a livable Housing Estate, not in Awka but in Nkwelle Ezunaka, near the city of Onitsha. He is Chief Austin Oguejiofor, (Onwa Enugwu Ukwu n’Umunri, Okutalukwe Aguleri). He engaged the State and His Excellency, Chief Willie Obiano, Akpokuedike, answered him. And today his Anambra Place Luxury Estate in Nkwelle Ezunaka is Springing up, and hundreds have bought into that Estate and already developing and living there. It’s a livable Estate with all the apotanaces of Luxury which actually defined the name of the place.

The Rotech Energy Services Ltd, developers of the Anambra Luxury Place Estate have demonstrated that where there is a will, there is a way. They came, saw, and conquered.

It’s very important to remind Ndi Igbo wherever they may be domiciled that there is good news at home. Anambra have enough to acomodate everybody. It’s very important and Germaine that our people become aware that what they are looking for in Sokoto is actually in their “shokoto”!

Chief Austin Oguejiofor is not just developing the Luxury Estate at Nkwelle, he is very interested in pioneering a standard market in Anambra State that will attract out people from all parts of world to have some business outfits and market that will outperform ASPANDA, and other high profile markets in Lagos; which is the main attraction that makes ndi Igbo look towards Lagos.

Now is the time, not tomorrow to Think Home and it’s very good if Aku anyi ga elu uno! Thanks to His Excellency, Chief Willie Obiano, Akpokuedike, for such ingenuity that is encouraging ndi Anambra to come home and buy into his Akuluouno philosophy.
