Speaker of Abia State House of Assembly and the PDP flagbearer for Ikwuano/Umuahia Federal Constituency at the 2023 general elections, Rt Hon Chinedum Enyinnaya Orji, has received car donations from another concerned Abian, Mr Frank Sopuruchi Okpokiri who is based in Turkey.
Presenting the Toyota Camry and Toyota Corolla cars to the Speaker in company of some of his friends and associates, the Ibeku-born Mr Okpokiri said he was inspired to donate the cars to Rt Hon Chinedum Enyinnaya Orji because of his exemplary generousity to the people, a virtue he said he has copied from the Speaker and decided to do to him what he has been doing for others because ‘he who waters deserves to be watered’.
He thanked the Speaker for being a light to the people and for his public-spirited leadership qualities which he said has elevated governance in the State.
Reacting, an obviously elated Speaker said he was pleasantly surprised by the donations from Mr Okpokiri and for the kind words he volunteered towards him as he is used mostly only to giving. While thanking the donor for the gesture, Rt Hon Chinedum Enyinnaya Orji urged him to take his generousity a notch further by being generous to the poor, the needy and the vulnerable in the society without forgetting his family and friends. That way, the Speaker continued, life becomes more pleasant for all and sundry while he receives the rewards of a generous man.
While praying for him and wishing him well in his endeavours, the Speaker admonished Mr Okpokiri to remain focused and not allow himself to be distracted by things of no value.
The Direcctor of Youth Mobilisation on the Speaker’s Campaign Council, Mr Benjamin Ifeanyi Apugo, the Director, Ikuku Oma Door-To-Door Movement, Hon Uzodinma Derek Ugele were among others present at the short ceremony.
