The historical inauguration and projects launching of the Enugu Ezike in diaspora organization which took place on the 27th of December 2019 will go down in history as an event that mark the beginning and an invigorating autumn of development that will bring our dear community from the dark and desolate valley of timidity to the sunlight of a modern and developled city.
On the course of making their promissory note a reality,the organization of Ezike diaspora has taken a giant and brave beginning of securing Ezike territories. This preference was in line with the phrasal adage that says “Security first”, history has it that no city has ever become great without the fortification of her territories, either by building of walls or by strengthening of their security guards, the biblical rebuilding of the wall of Jerusalem by Nehemiah and co,the historical building of walls of Babylon and the great Wall of China are there for testimonies.
In following these footprints,the organization of Ezike diaspora made a brave and commendable move in purchasing of 72 security motorcycles and 72 security mobile phones with free call aim card.
These 72 motorcycles and mobile phones were distributed among the various 36 autonomous communities that make up Enugu Ezike.
Each autonomous community were entitled with 2 motorcycles and 2 mobile phones.
The indigenous people of each community are advised to get the phone numbers of the security phones for easy communications on any security matters in your area.
The security personnels were reminded during the handover that those motorcycles aren’t for commercial purposes like okada transport but for the sole aim of security of Ezike territories and her people.
The organization of Ezike diaspora therefore stated that the event is going to be an annual event and today’s event and project is simply a tip of the iceberg from what they have the their fatherland.
Having invested in security, come next year event,the organization is aiming on improving the educational standard of our people by giving of scholarships to Ezike students to go and study abroad and as well building on educational infrastructures.
At this juncture,they appealed on Ezike people to always remember them in their prayers and remain optimistic that the greatness of Enugu Ezike is already at hand.
We are therefore duty bound to inform our brothers, sisters and friends who reside abroad but are yet to identify with the organization to do justice with togetherness and join this progressive moving train.
On this note,we appeal to our brothers and sisters in different branches in Nigeria to follow the example portrayed by the Ezike diaspora in making Enugu Ezike great in any way.
The greatness of Enugu Ezike is our collective responsibilities.
The occasion was graced with the presence of dignitaries who supported the organization with their respective amounts:
Distinguished Senator Ayogu Eze (Ebubedike), Rt Hon Ethel Oyibo Ugwuanyi (Mama Ozzi), Hon prince Emeka Mamah (Ide),Comr Frederick Uwakwe Ezeja, Hon Kentus Eze ,Prof Maxwell Ezeja,Dr Ejikeme Owelle Odumegwu,Nze Alexander Urama and host of others.
