Listen to article

In what appears to be some sort of endorsement of the second tenure of Gov­ernor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State, the family of the first civilian Governor of the State, late Chief Sam Mbakwe would today (Thursday) confer the governor with an award.

A statement signed by Engr. Alex Mbakwe the first son of the late sage, said that the award of ‘Beacon of Hope For Good Governance,’ would be conferred on the governor under the platform of Chief Sam Mbakwe Leadership Award 2023.

The Eastern Updates reports that this is the first time that such an award was being conferred on either a sitting or former governor of Imo State.

The award would be pre­ceded by a lecture to be de­livered by Prof. Engr Val Ike­chukwu, the former Director at National Universities Com­mission (NUC).

The theme of the lecture is: ‘The Challenge of Leadership in Imo State: Lessons from Sam Mbakwe Model.’

According to the state­ment, the ceremony would be presided over by Chief Leo Stan Ekeh, a tech giant.

Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, the Presi­dent-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, would be the father of the day, while Mrs. Victoria Mbakwe, the former Imo State First Lady is the Chief Host.

The award from Chief Sam Mbakwe Leadership Award is among dozens of awards and endorsements he has received ahead of the election.

Among those who have honoured and endorsed the governor are the Nigeria La­bour Cozngress (NLC), Nige­ria Union of Teachers (NUT) and the Nigeria Union of Pen­sioners (NUP).
