The socio-cultural igbo group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has joined their voice with many others to felicitateChief Engr. Prince Arthur Eze (Ozoigbondu) as he turns 73.
They made known their well wishes for him through a statement addressed to him and released to the press through Chiedozie Alex Ogbonnia, the group’s National Publicity Secretary where they described Arthur as a shining star in the global firmament for over three decades based on certain enviable qualities.
Stating some of his qualities, Ogbonnia said, “Some of the qualities include ingenuity, audacity, creative thinking, hard work, perseverance, generosity and philanthropy. The most astounding of the Ozoigbondu mystique is his unwavering faith in the Almighty God.
“It needs mentioning that Ozoigbondu has sown seeds in almost every part of Igbo land; through Church buildings, schools and other social amenities. Similarly, almost all the universities in the South East of Nigeria have indelible imprints of the Ozoigbondu largesse either by cash donations, buildings, vehicles, libraries, etc. Interestingly, the Ozoigbondu philanthropy and goodwill are beyond the shores of the South East and the entire Nigeria; he is a global currency in kindness and generosity.
“Paradoxically, while most Nigerian entrepreneurs amass wealth at the expense of the government and the poor masses, Ozoigbondu with his personal resources rescues the government and the masses in various ways. Engr. Arthur Eze is indeed an Igbo persona.
“The President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Ambassador Professor George Obiozor is highly elated that Ozoigbondu is hale, hearty, joyous and indeed fit as fiddle at 73. Ohanaeze Ndigbo notes the numerous people with disabilities and the vulnerable that are in hock with you; and joins in supplication to God that you will enjoy many more years in robust health, vitality and prosperity”, he said concluding.
