He said that the idea of the financial grant was to raise new millionaires in his community who will in return lift others from poverty. He noted that If many people are rich, the burden would not be heavy on one man, or a handful of people.

According to him, he learnt and started to imbibe the spirit of helping the poor in the early stages of his life. He revealed that under the age of thirty years, he started contributing to the development of Nnewi by building a multi-million Naira theatre for the students’ nurses at Nnamdi Azikiwe University Teaching Hospital, which orchestrated the accreditation of the teaching hospital.

Speaking further, he urged the government at all levels to invest in human capital development, bemoaning on the situation where graduates spend years without employment. He said that the rate of unemployment in Nigeria is what is causing criminality and other anti-social behaviors of the youths of today, noting that he will continue to give out scholarships and open more industries to curtail the rate of unemployment.
