Two sons of Ugwuakuma village, namely Mazi Fidelis Okoro Nwosu (a former chairman of Nzuko Aro, Abuja and Aro News director) and Mazi Kanu Joe (a retired oil company worker) have exhibited what could be termed the highest sense of patriotism based on altruistic instincts by embarking on the projects that have been impacting positively on the lives of the good people of their village.
Mazi Kanu Joe built and donated to Ugwuakuma an edifice that has been stocked with books and other ICT equipment. The building is located on the right-hand side by the road while coming from Ututu. A beautiful sign-board mounted on the building described it as a community library; a complete departure from what Arochukwu is experiencing at the moment – proliferation of hotels.
The people hail the project as a most welcome development that should be emulated by other well-to-do Aro indigenes, even as they continue to build hotels in the town.
On his part, Mazi Fidelis Okoro Nwosu had built a magnificent edifice beside his country-home in Ugwuakuma village and donated it to his compound! The building, almost identical to his house, is to serve as a meeting place and other social events.
Needless to say that his people are appreciative of the gesture.
Earlier, Fidelis Nwosu had drilled a water borehole at a strategic place (along the pathway that leads to his house and the hall) for the people.
Aro News also visited the village civic centre built by the women. According to the Eze Nwanyi of the village who spoke to Aro News correspondents on the project, Madam Nwanyinnaya Torty (who was the secretary of the women’s meeting when the hall was built), the hall was recently renovated and a section of it converted into a maternity by the women to care for the maternal and child health of their mothers and babies.
According to her, the maternity is serving the community well, as the local government has been posting health workers to the facility.
