Speaking exclusively to Pacesetter, an indigene of Agbani, Udochuma Ahalu explained clearly what the ribbon-cutting was all about and the idea behind the projects.
In his words: “The program is about commissioning of multiple projects donated by the Orji Nnaji family to the Amakpu community in Agbani, Nkanu West Local Government Area of Enugu State.
“The family’s foremost agenda has always been to give back to the society. Over the years, they have, in numerous ways, tried to help the good people of Agbani by aiding people in setting up their trades, giving scholarships to indigent students, monetary assistance to indigent Agbani families, sponsoring Agbani indigents to overseas, among establishing other various massive projects.
“In Agbani today, we can beat our chest and say that in the entire West Africa, we boast of having the finest olympic size basketball court, courtesy of the Orji Nnaji family.
“Projects which we are commissioning today include an Olympic standard twin basketball court with a standard gym house; Ultra modern Nvu Pavilion; State of the Art Technology Lab; Multi solar powered boreholes and streets lights; An academy that is sitting on arces of land, to mention a few of the achievements”.
Ahalu noted that the family also donated motorcycles and walkie talkies to aid security in Agbani and Nkanu West LGA.
While praising the initiative of the Executive Governor of Enugu State, Dr. Peter Mbah who called for direct foreign investment in the state and revealing that the Orji Nnaji family was at the fore of the clarion call by the Governor to expand the economy of the state, he stated that “this is a project that is running into millions of dollars. These projects came in one swoop within the last 18 months. This is something that is going to continue into the future”.
