Ozubulu Brothers’ Club set to establish JAMB CBT centres in Ozubulu, honours contributors to community development

The Ozubulu Brothers’ Club, Ozubulu in Ekwusigo Local Government Area of Anambra State, on Saturday, during its Diamond Jubilee and Grand Patron, Patrons Award Giving Ceremony, honoured some prominent indigenes of the community for their roles in community development.

The awardees were presented with certificates of merit and recognition for their various roles in both human and capital development which the club said had helped engender growth and open doors of opportunities for the youths of the area.

 Speaking on the occasion, one of the awardees, an industrialist, a philanthropist and a business mogul, Chief Gilbert Obi, Ezeobinwa the onwa of Ozubulu, said; “I am happy that this great club found me worthy to pick me as one of its patrons. We will ensure all hands are on deck towards ensuring that the aims and objectives of the club in the area of community and youth development are achieved.

“The Ozubulu Brothers’ Club was founded around 1965 but it seemed to be derailing from its aims and objectives in recent times, but I am happy that the current leadership is rekindling hope and a lot of people are happy. We have quite a lot of projects to embark upon which we believe engender both human and capital development, especially for the youths.”

According to him, the club is embodiment of people who are intelligent, resilience dynamic and peace-loving people whose efforts, he said had contributed immensely to the development of human and alleviating  the plights of some indigenous people in all spheres of life.

He said the club reformed and remolded its members to be noble and called on the youths of Ozubulu to identify with the club.

Also speaking, the Chairman of the club, Nworah Isaac, expressed the hope that the recognition of Prof Anene-Okeakwa and Hon Okolie would spur them to contribute to the attainment of the set objectives of the club and to the greater good of  society.

Isaac explained that the club was more determined to rejuvenate and position itself to meet the challenges of development of modern society with a view to improving the human resource development of the youths and infrastructure.

He said: “We are determined more than ever before, to rejuvenate and reposition the club to meet the challenges of development of modern society, especially the human resource development of our teeming youths.

“We have also determined to develop an ICT centre which can be used by our youths who wish to improve their ICT skills and also as a Computer Based Test centre for JAMB examinations in Ozubulu, as there is none in the community at the moment.

“It is highly regrettable that our children go to other smaller communities around us to write CBT exams. While Nnewi has up to eight CBT centres, Ozubulu does not have one and that is why our children will always struggle to get postings to other communities to write exams with all the attendant risks.

“The awardees received various recognitions; some were awarded grand patron and patrons. These were illustrious children of the community and also considered to have done the Ozubulu community proud in their chosen fields of endeavours.”
