Heavy celebration at EKU yesterday Sunday as UPYA/ACLEVS TEAM meets the ANGEL (who donated a bus and 18 laptops for the mobile empowerment institute) for the first time!
HIS NAME IS DR OVIE UGHWANOGHO!
Please, if you know this man, kindly thank him for us, even if you don’t, pray for him for the effect of his action would go transgenerational!
A USA based medical doctor whom God used to bring our long dreamt VISION of a MOBILE EMPOWERMENT INSTITUTE to fruition!
Even after the bus and laptops were delivered to us in Lagos by his rep last week Wednesday, we still have not met this ANGEL physically! So when we heard he was at his country home in respect of the FINALS/PRICE GIVING CEREMONY OF THE DR OVIE UGHWANOGHO URHOBO CHALLENGE coming up this week Saturday 27th at Government College Ughelli, we decided to pay him a surprise visit!
We made a royal entry on a motor cade of not less than 15 vehicles including the new bus fully branded with the 18 laptop computers on board with double trafigators on! Yes call it an appreciation voyage or whatever! It was a memorable experience we won’t forget in a haste!
He was under a mango tree in his compound as usual with some of the village chiefs and kings men when we drove into the very simple compound full of natural touch! You can guest what followed thereafter; warm hugs, salutations and hailings everywhere!
The man we saw is such a fine gentle and humble man without blemishes of pride! Together with his kingsmen, they first entertained the TEAM, there after Marcus Ekure, the TEAM leader took the center stage! He started by introducing each of the team members present, that was after Dr Ovie Ughwanogho had introduced his kingsmen that were equally present. Marcus made a retrospective introspective and prospective appraisal of UPYA/ACLEVS recounting its creed/values, achievements cum challenges so far as well as prospects! On behalf of the team members, he specially thanked Dr Ovie for finding UPYA/ACLEVS worthy to partner with in his quest to giving back to the society and assured him that he would never regret this decision!
Finally, on his own part, Dr Ovie, who spoke voluminously on countless current societal challenges expressed dissatisfaction over the nonchalance of many capable hands towards solution provision. He made it very clear that their generation (including himself) has disappointed the youth of today, who have become robots in the hands of their destroyers (who pose to be leaders)! He said we shouldn’t be thanking or appreciating him for doing what they failed to do in their time! He said there is an urgent need for the youth of today to wake up to their senses and take their destinies into their hands rather than allowing themselves to be used for profane courses!
Further more, he said what attracted him to UPYA even on social media, is its activities and programs which are targeted towards re orientation and better society creation. He said he has been monitoring the progress of UPYA/ACLEVS on face book and from enquiries, findings revealed UPYA/ACLEVS has been so consistent and committed to its course which he Dr Ovie considers the most important course for our society at the moment: Youth Empowerment, human capital and community development! He said what he has done for UPYA/ACLEVS today is nothing compared to what the organisation has done and is still doing and that this is just the beginning of the long walk he has with the Organisation!
The high point of the occasion, after lovely and remarkable comments from each of his kingsmen present about his giant stride and unannounced contributions towards developments of Urhobo nation and beyond, was photo shots!
Once again! We are grateful to God for this blessing as we pray for more Dr Ovie Ughwanogho in our lives in Jesus Name! Amen! God Bless.
