In what seemed like an extra feather to his cap, the Rotary Club, Awka Central yesterday presented the International Basic Education and Literacy Service Excellence Award in Awka, Anambra State, to Engineer Bart Nwibe.
The award presentation which was a part of the events to mark the installation of its new President, Rtn. Chidi Nwakpadolu, saw the club extol the virtues of Engineer Nwibe for his significant active personal service towards basic education and literacy in Anambra State and the South East Region.
Presenting the award to Engineer Nwibe who was ably represented by an aide of his, the Rotary Club Awka Central commended Nwibe for his passion for education as well as his scholarship programme through the Ugo Igbo foundation which had empowered many youths to seek the education at a number of tertiary institutions both in Nigeria and outside the shores of this country.
Thanking the club, Nwibe who is also a Paul Harris Fellow and Major Donor Rotary Club International said the award had further encouraged him as he promised to do more to ensure that no child in Anambra is left behind in the striving for a better life.
He said that there were plans to ensure that his scholarship scheme which had empowered over ten thousand students for the past sixteen years would soon cover the whole of Anambra South Senatorial Zone.
