“I care very passionately about the welfare of the people of Imo State. Since I started empowering people, no case of rape or social vices have been recorded at Uzoagba because the youths are positively engaged. When it comes to empowerment of women, I care a lot because women are very powerful, hence they take ownership of whatever they are doing. But it is unfortunate that the values of the female folk are not regarded in Nigeria. And I believe we can start doing something differently. I commend the CEO of Imo Angels FC for hatching this great vision through football. I key into what the club is doing because it is making a great impact which ought to be emulated and encouraged”.
