A philanthropist turned politician, Dr Ejikeme Odumegwu, has donated 800 bags of cement (with a market value of about N3.6 million) to Okunerere Adoration Ministry, Nsukka in Enugu State.

Making the donation at a thanksgiving service in the ministry on Tuesday, Odumegwu, who is with the title of Owelle Igbo, told newsmen that the donation was in fulfillment of a pledge he made to the ministry during its bazaar celebration.

He said that the donation was meant to uplift the building work ongoing in the ministry as well as “ensure that the House of God is in a benefiting shape”.

Odumegwu (PDP), who intends to contest the Igbo-Eze North State Constituency –1 seat in the Enugu State House of Assembly, said that he would use the same passion of his philanthropy to ensure his constituents do not lack by giving them quality representation.

“The massive crowd from communities in Igbo-Eze North council area, excluding my extended family members and friends, here today shows the overwhelming support and followership my declaration to vie for the Igbo-Eze North State Constituency – 1 had already attracted.

“Just as I have passion for philanthropy, the same passion I will carry over to my political career and ensure that my constituents continue to enjoy quality representation as well as good governance and good life that goes with it.

“Before now, I have given hundreds of pupils and students scholarship even to university level, built amenities throughout the state just like pipe borne water, electricity and recently a police station in my Igbo-Eze council area,” he said.

“Because you have done this and not held back even in hardship; the great God we serve will surely grant your heart desires.

“With your passion in helping the Church, state, community and people around you; God in his infinite mercy will surely lift you up as you have lifted others,” he said.
