Enelamah lauds Umuahia club over N250m community projects
Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, Okechukwu Enelamah, has commended Umuahia Premier Club (UPC) for supporting community development with N250 million.
He spoke in Abuja at the induction, fund raising and award ceremony organised by the club to support education, healthcare and skills development sectors in the area.
The theme of the event was: “Raising 21st century leaders in Umuahia.”
While expressing appreciation at the three cardinal areas that the club is seeking to intervene in, he said the funds would go a long way in addressing the challenges of the people.
The minister added that the vision of the club was in line with that of the Federal Government to promote the entrepreneurial capacities of youth.
He said: “I have known Umuahia Premier Club to be a socio-cultural organisation that is always in the business of improving the socio-economic wellbeing of Umuahians.
“In a society where education is held sacrosanct, where the state of health of the populace is taken paramount and where entrepreneurship flourishes within the youth, the hope of a brighter tomorrow can be better imagined.”
National Chairman of the club, Nnanna Ochiugo, and chairman of the event, Dr. Nelson Uwaga urged members to be generous in supporting community development.
