doc 1216

It was a special moment of bountiful joy and celebrations for the President Goodluck Jonathan’s Special Adviser on Technical Matters, Nze Akachukwu Nwamkpo, last weekend when his kith and kin of Ihiala Local Government Area of Anambra state, friends and well-wishers gathered at the Odo-ata Primary school grounds, Ihiala, to witness as he was conferred with a special chieftaincy title.

The honour which was uniquely collective by all the 14 communities in Ihiala Local Government Area of Anambra State was performed by their traditional rulers.

The natural rulers used the occasion to commend President Jonathan for reposing confidence in their son, Nze Akachukwu by finding him worthy to serve in his administration.

Nwankpo who presently also the secretary of the Subsidy Reinvestment Programme (SURE – P) of the Federal Government hails from Okija in Ihiala Local Government Area.

Until his present double appointment, Chief Nwamkpo was the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Special Duties.

The royal fathers, noted with special pride and confidence that persons of Nwamkpo’s ilk were really difficult to find in this days and time where people abuse their positions as public officers, and or use same for vain pursuits. They expressed deep satisfaction with the reports and information reaching them from Aso Rock, the nation’s seat of power concerning him. They therefore described him as a worthy son of Ihiala, a material worthy of export and higher office/calling, and that he makes them proud. He was urged to shine on, for more people to see through him. Little wonder they found it ideally easy to bestow on him one of the highest prestigious honour and chieftaincy title, Ifeadigo, meaning, the light is here.

Speaking on behalf of the monarchs, HRH Igwe Comas Igwe noted that having served commendably well as a presidential aide, Nwamkpo could fit very well into the big shoes to be left behind by the incumbent and outgoing governor of Anambra state, Mr. Peter Obi. Consequently, they urged the Anambra State electorate to support him with their votes when the time comes.

Nwankpo, one of the hot favourites among those eying the governorship of Anambra State in the forthcoming Nov 2013, was reputed to be a dedicated go-getter, articulate and consummate workaholic.

In a brief remark at the special a civic reception organized in honour of Nwamkpo at Ihiala shortly after the conferrement of the chieftaincy title, the traditional ruler of Ihiala, Igwe Cosmas Okechukwu, who spoke on behalf of all the other traditional rulers in the Local Government Area observed that for President Jonathan to consistently find him worthy to serve him means that he is somebody to be trusted, adding that it was for that reason that all the monarchs in the area chose to honour and adopt him as their political representative. Especially when such qualitative materials have become very rare around.

Nwamkpo, while acknowledging cheers from the crowd thanked the royal fathers and the people of his Local Government Area for finding him worthy for the title and promised not to disappoint them. He also promised to continue to serve the nation without blemish.

He also urged the people to continue to give maximum support to the Federal Government in its efforts to transform lives and standard of life for all citizens.
