4

#AnambraDecides2021 #WinWithDikeora In the pursuit of his passion for philanthropy, Dr. Obiora Okonkwo, the incoming Governor of Anambra state and Guber Candidate of Zenith Labour Party (ZLP), founded the Pro-Value Humanity Foundation, a charity primarily concerned with recreating humanity through authentic human-centered development and reorientation of values. In 2019, he endowed a research chaired at the Nnamdi Azikiwe University Business School, Awka, to study the future of Igbo entrepreneurship as he strongly believes that the research will help drive innovative changes that will revolutionize Igbo enterprise and reposition them to become global brands. Dr Okonkwo is noted for his exceptional philanthropy and dedicated support for humanitarian and religious causes with several Nigerians in Europe, America and in Nigerian universities enjoying his education scholarship offered through the Joseph Okonkwo Foundation, a charity dedicated to the memory of his late father. He also built and donated a school to his home community in Ogidi, and brought in the Catholic Religious Order of Sisters of Divine Mercy, to manage it. Fees at the school are fully subsidized by him. He also built and donated churches and supported different religious causes across the denominations. A strong believer in poverty eradication through skills acquisition for youths, he was the 2019 Face of Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) -an annual event of Rotary International which brings together youths from across the globe for leadership and entrepreneurial training. To demonstrate his support for the programme, he sponsored several Anambra youths to the Rotary Booth Camp where they learned different self-actualizing skills. Dr Obiora Okonkwo is a man of the people and loved by all. Vote for Progress! Vote Zenith Labour Party (ZLP)! Vote Dr. Obiora Okonkwo and Dame Barr Jessie Balonwu as Governor and Deputy Governor of Anambra state respectively. Maka Ilu Olu Oma!
