Team, we are delighted to announce today the Awka Times Person of the Year, 2019.
Following months of meticulous search – undertaken even as we planned our market entry – we alighted on the choice of our illustrious brother, Dr Okey Anueyiagu, as the Awka Times Person of the Year, 2019.
As might be expected, there were many other worthy candidates for this recognition. But Dr Anueyiagu stood out at this time for the size, scope and impact of his philanthropy. His foundation has undertaken a radical and imaginative transformation of the physical and pedagogic infrastructure of primary school education in our community, among other charitable efforts. For that, Awka Times recognizes and salutes Dr Okey Anueyiagu.
We are keeping track of the magnificent work being done by many others to uplift our native communities. And we will uplift these efforts to global recognition, in due course.
Please join us to congratulate our Person of the Year, Dr Okey Anueyiagu.
