Mallam Gov Okorocha beautifying the place of Igbo betrayals Ohanaeze headquarter

Mallam Okorocha Son at USA
Governor Rochas Anayo Okorocha of Imo State is un­dertaking the construction and furnishing of a befitting headquarter and secretari­at complex for the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the apex socio-cul­tural leadership of Igbo peo­ple worldwide. The centre will serve as a new befitting edifice for Ndigbo in Nigeria and the Diaspora.
The gigantic structure is being erected at the 7 Park Avenue headquarters of the Ohanaeze at the Government Reserved Area of Enugu, the capital city of the former East­ern Region, and generally ac­knowledged as the headquar­ters of the Igbo nation.

The ultra-modern struc­ture will consist of a three-storey structure housing the administrative block as well as another 20-room guest house which will also house an all-purpose hall for the ac­tivities of Ohanaeze and oth­er Igbo groups which might require a befitting space for their activities. It is expected that the guest rooms would be managed as a hospitality facil­ity which would earn money for the day-to-day running of the organisation.
Speaking to The AU­THORITY during the meet­ing of Igbo stakeholders who had rallied in Enugu to discuss the Igbo position on recent is­sues surrounding the upsurge of murderous militia in parts of the Middle Belt, and South­ern Nigeria, including parts of Igboland, the president gen­eral of Ohanaeze worldwide, Chief Gary Enwo-Igariwey, confirmed with pride that the Rochas Foundation was erect­ing the structures for Ndigbo. Enwo-Igariwey is elated that such an enterprise is taking place during his tenure.

Our correspondent who was led around the construc­tion site by Engr Ugochukwu Chukwujireh, the boss of the construction firm handling the project, also confirmed that his firm is competent to deliv­er on the project in time. The company was also responsible for the construction of the new Imo State Government House.
The AUTHORITY equally learnt that the contractor has been adequately mobilized for the construction of the com­plex which is expected to be completed before the expiry of the lifetime of the present Ohanaeze executive which will lapse next February.
Chief Enwo-Igariwey fur­ther informed The AUTHOR­ITY that since the headquar­ters were donated to Ohanaeze by the administration of Dr, Okwesilieze Nwodo of Enugu State, Owelle Rochas Okoro­cha has been one of the biggest benefactors of the ethnic body, revealing that he had support­ed the organisation in cash and kind.

Accordingly, the on-go­ing construction is said to be a culmination of other con­tributions which the Rochas Foundation has been extend­ing towards the Ohanaeze’s welfare and sustenance. For instance, as the Ohanaeze president told The AUTHOR­ITY, Owelle Rochas Okoro­cha has been advancing a monthly sum of N1.5 million to the Ohanaeze during the leadership tenure of the late Ambassador Ralph Uwechue, but had to stop due to some minor disagreement.

As a way of underscor­ing his support for the goals of the promotion of the goals of Igbo progress and dialogue, the Rochas Foundation was said to have erected the Igbo­zurume Hall at Emene, near the Akanu Ibiam Interna­tional Airport, which is be­ing used for social activities. It is hoped, our correspond­ent was told, that when work at the new Ohanaeze complex is completed, most of the so­cio-cultural activities will move there.
Speaking to The AU­THORITY, the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Okoro­cha, Mr Sam Onwuemeodo, said that Governor Okorocha who was at the project site in Enugu on Tuesday to inspect the progress of work, has giv­en the contractor marching or­ders to complete the project as soon as possible.

He further said that Ow­elle Rochas Okorocha insists that “when the project is com­pleted, God will take the glo­ry, while Ndigbo at home and abroad will celebrate it”.
