The member representing Afikpo North East Constituency, Ebonyi state House of Assembly (EBHA), Chief Oluchukwu Ukie Ezeali (P-Noble), has lauded an hotelier, Chief Christian Asaga Nwali, on his latest chieftaincy title of the “Ide Jiulo 1 of Izzi Nnodo Kingdom” by the entire Izzi Nnodo community in Ebonyi state.
In an exclusive chat with Blueprint in Abuja, Monday, Ezeali said Nwali’s recognition by his people is as a result of his philanthropic activities and humanitarian interventions, including employing over 500 Nigerians, scholarship programs, marriage sponsorship of his employees, among others.
He said: “I congratulate my beloved brother and friend, Chief Nwali, on his meritorious recognition and conferment of the latest chieftaincy title of the Ide Jiulo 1 of Izzi Nnodo Kingdom by the entire Izzi Nnodo community.
“The latest chieftaincy title is another evidence of the value he has been adding to humanity for time immemorial, especially with regards to human capital development, economic development of Ebonyi state in particular and Nigeria in general.
“Having previously been conferred with chieftaincy titles as Odozie Obodo 1 of Ameka Ikwo and Uzochukwu wara 1 of Ekpelu Kingdom in Ikwo LGA, the numerous recognitions are indeed testaments of his acceptance by his people.
“As a successful, self-made businessman, Chief Christian Asaga Nwali has impacted so much on the Izzi Nnodo, Ikwo local government area (LGA) and Ebonyi state in general, through his philanthropic activities, employment opportunities for the youth and other humanitarian interventions,” he stated.
