Uche Nwosu: The Echoes Of Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow
By Ikenna Samuelson Iwuoha
It is no longer debatable who Ugwumba Uche Nwosu is to the good people of Imo State and Nigeria. It is not debatable today that Uche Nwosu’s honour out of public service is much more resounding than when he was in public service.
Even though he left public service almost a year ago, Uche Nwosu has continued to be more relevant in every way and manner; politically, socially, economically, culturally and indeed religiously, in moving Imo State, South-East and Nigeria forward. And people of all shades of life have continued to testify of how almighty god has used and still using him to uplift humanity.
This shows that a man is remembered by his work. There is nothing to remember about evil workers, as their memory will naturally rot away, but there is everything to remember a good and godly man. Proverbs chapter 10 verse 7 tells us that ” the memory of the righteous is blessed, but the name of the wicked will rot”.
There are two categories of individuals, whether traders, business men, civil servants, politicians, farmers etc.
The first category is for those whose services to humanity are meaningless and worthless, and have through their activities and actions worsened and aggravated the suffering of mankind, when they start seeing good works of those people who fear, respect, honour and love almighty god, they become envious of the achievements of such people. And because they are envious, they adopt the instrument of blackmail, slander, mischief, derogatory comments, nshiko mentality, etc just to discredit these achievements.
The second category is for those who render selfless services and are genuinely committed and indeed dedicated to alleviating the suffering of the less privileged and down trodden in the society. Almighty god in his infinite wisdom has invested so much in these particular class of people, who see themselves as servants.
They use whatever resources the Almighty God has placed at their disposal to serve humanity and God. Without any fear of contradiction, Ugwumba Uche Nwosu belongs to this second category.
Uche Nwosu who is in his mid-forties has so served humanity that he has become a household name in Imo State, South-East, Nigeria and indeed the global community. The socio-political, cultural and economic discourse and engagements in Imo State is incomplete without the mention of the name, Uche Nwosu.
Before he formally joined/accepted political appointment in Imo State, Uche Nwosu was a man of value, with interests in real estate, hospitality industry, farming etc, where thousands of Imo sons and daughters have been gainfully employed, directly and indirectly.
Ugwumba Uche Nwosu first served as Deputy Chief of Staff to the Imo State Governor. Later, he served as Commissioner for Lands and Urban Planning. Finally, he served as Chief of Staff to the Governor. In all these positions, he proved himself worthy by emerging the best. He breathed life into each of the political positions he occupied, to the extent that staff of these offices enjoyed better and more fulfilled life.
From 2011 when he assumed political office till date (even though he is no longer in office), Uche Nwosu initiated a programme module that has continued to reward the best civil servants in the state civil service, yearly. This proactive attitude has continued to motivate civil servants to put in their best in service, for the development of the state.
Every programme of Ugwumba Uche Nwosu has a philosophy behind it, which is to continue to put smiles on the faces of people. No wonder over one thousand Imo youths have benefitted from his empowerment programme initiative. No wonder over one hundred physically challenged persons in Imo state have benefitted from his empowerment programme initiative.
No wonder over two and fifty traders have benefitted from his empowerment programme initiative. No wonder one hundred and seventy one widows have benefitted from his empowerment programme initiative. No wonder over five hundred students are under his scholarship foundation. No wonder he has built houses for people who have no roof over their heads. No wonder he has provided borehole and small scale built markets for several communities in Imo State.
In appreciation for his good and commendable work for humanity, Ugwumba Uche Nwosu has received numerous awards and titles, locally, regionally, nationally, continentally and globally, and these have continued to spur him to do more for the society, to the glory of almighty god.
Like i stated above, Uche Nwosu’s honour out of public service is much more resounding than when he was in public service. To this effect, the commander of empowerment, as he is fondly called, has rolled out another scheme that would further enhance and encourage Imo traders across the state in their economic growth and other activities.
Ugwumba Uche Nwosu is currently constructing one thousand pieces of iron tables, which will be given out to traders freely, to enhance their various trading activities. This current move is a clear indication that Uche Nwosu’s various empowerment programmes, scholarships and philanthropy have no political undertones.
However, although the outcome of the 2019 governorship election in the state was manipulated against Uche Nwosu by the conspiracy of INEC, PDP and a cabal who are afraid of his rising profile, the people of Imo State have come to terms that Ugwumba Uche Nwosu is the leader that has come to work, for the benefit of all, and who has come to solve challenges facing humanity.
It is a given and proven constant that Uche Nwosu is neither greedy nor selfish. He has never been self-centered. He freely shares with anyone that comes in contact with him. The last governorship election in Imo State is a test case.
Immediately after the election, with the exception of Ugwumba Uche Nwosu, all the other governorship candidates have reportedly retrieved their campaign vehicles from the people they gave them to.
Uche Nwosu means well for Ndimo, Ndigbo and Nigeria. Those resisting, opposing and conspiring against him will never succeed because he is an anointed man of god called to liberate humanity from the shackles of poverty and evilcratic machinations of the devil and his agents.
If you insist on working for Almighty God, you will be resisted, frustrated, accused falsely, harassed and opposed by the devil and his agents. Ephesians chapter 6 verse 12 says, ” for we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world and against spiritual wickedness in high places”.
When Moses was called to set the people of Israel free, he was resisted and opposed by Pharaoh, an agent of the devil, who eventually lost the battle in the end.
When our lord Jesus Christ was born into the world to save mankind, he was resisted and opposed by Herod who ordered the slaughter of all children, in an attempt to eliminate Jesus Christ the saviour. The great call, ministry and commission of Jesus Christ as the saviour of the world was met with the highest kind of resistance.
When David was anointed to lead Israel, he faced all kinds of opposition, conspiracy and resistance; but he eventually emerged victorious in the end.
Conversely, although Uche Nwosu is a mortal man with limitations, those opposing, resisting and conspiring against his anointed desire to continue to bring genuine smiles on the faces of Ndimo will eventually lose the battle in the end.
Uche Nwosu has come to work.
I rest my pen.
