However, presenting the Awards to Dr. Ubah, the former leader, Igbo Market Association, Lagos state, Mr. Nnamdi Ndigwe (Odejinji) stated that the award became imperative, in recognition and appreciation of Ubah’s immense contributions and efforts towards the growth of Ndi-Igbo land and Nigeria at large.
Mr Nnamdi, equally maintained that Dr. Ubah’s Capital Oil and Gas, Authority Newspaper and other investments have continued to play crucial role in areas of reducing job insecurity, promotion of Igbo’s image among others.
Meanwhile, in his acceptance speech, Dr Ubah thanked the organization for what they stand for.
He stressed the need for “everyone to identify with “Afa Igbo Efuna Project” so that Ndi-Igbo would be liberated from bad governance and policies which has continued to deny us our deserved growth and development in Igbo land,” adding that Ndi-Igbo should continue to identify with Igbo language and culture as they remain our symbols of identity.
