Nise agog for Ken Christ Ekene Ejiofor a.k.a Kwocha, as Kano community prays for him

This saying, "Be not afraid of greatness; some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them." By the sage himself, William Shakespeare for truly, "No great man lives in vain’’, as the history of the world is but biography of great men. reports exclusively that at the last lap of December 31, 2017, family members, friends and well-wishers from across the country particularly from Sabongari Market, Kano state, Abuja and Anambra state and ofcourse other states in South-East gathered to celebrate a man of humility, Mr Ekene Christian Ejiofor known locally as Kwocha and internationally with his business name ‘’Ken Christ’’.

Ekene ended the year on a good note, as he dedicated his newly built mansion located at Eziegbe Umuono, Ngodo, Nise, Awka South local government Area. The building was a project in patience and it sits atop four plots of land or so. He did house warming ceremony attracting people of like minds and good conscience who came and celebrated with him.

 Ken Christ harkened to the teachings of former Governors of Anambra state , Dr Chukwuemeka Ezeife, Mr Peter Obi and incumbent governor , Chief Willie Obiano to bring home their wealth home. After investing in real estate in Kano, where he is doing business as a true son of Anambra state, he returned home to continue his real estate arm of his business. He has given accommodation to many as a young landlord until he decided to equally ‘house himself’ by erecting the magnificent edifice.

But at about 40 years of age, Ken Christ who is into Building materials with specialty in Plumbing materials local and international decided to return home to showcase what his company could do with real estate and built a posh, ultra-modern edifice with state of the art home accessories and chandeliers to complement. The house is indeed a home.

Indeed nobody expected him to have built the best house in Nise community today having come from a very poor family, if not the poorest of the poor but today the story has changed as he has achieved greatness by due diligence, humility and hard work crowned by God’s blessings.

His brother and bosom friend, Mr Anthony Sunday Ejiofor , Lokoja based businessman was full of praises to God Almighty for sparing their humble but illustrious son in faraway Kano struggling like others but God remembered him special against all odds. He prayed God to continue to watch over Ekene as he has become proud son of Ejiofor’s family of Umuaghalunwa kindred, Umuono, village Nise community.

For Chief Chukwudi Ezenwoke aka Ichiele Nise, and past Chairman of Umuono village ,Mr Gozie Amateze, they cannot thank God enough that despite the economic recession , their brother was able to remember to build and prayed that God shall grant every youth who loves and praises God for the good things He has done for Ken Christ his own house.

Gozie believed that life is a journey not a destination, hence a son of who people saw then in Umuchiafor kindred as nobody judging from the poverty in their family has been elevated by God as somebody and Ekene has overtaken so many by dint of hard work, commitment and dedication, coupled with fear of God. He concluded: ‘’God made this possible’’.

On his part, the Eze-Ndigbo in Sabon-Gari Market/ Ochinanwata Ufuma ,Orumba North, Chief Ugochukwu Reginald Uzoemena said Ken Christ’s source of income is known to all in Kano hence they are celebrating him as a true son of Igbo land blessed by God for his diligence, dedication and commitment in His vineyard. reports further that Ugochukwu also known as Okpalaigbo n’Kano said Ken Christ is not greedy, and lazy but an open minded and industrious youth who is a pillar in St Stephen’s Anglican Church , Kano and was chairman of Harvest and Bazzar for 6 tenures. He added that he believes in working for God hence God has been working for him and protecting him as His child.

‘’It is only God can do this for him and God’s blessings can never be too much for His people’’, Ezenwa N’Orumba North and South as Ugochukwu is equally known concluded.

 Though Chairman of Umuono, Mr Chris Ekpe was not handy as the time of going to press, the Secretary Umuaghalanwa family and Umuono Kindred , Mr Okechukwu Amatta said Ken Christ aka Nwatakwochaka is their age mate hence their age grade Ifeabata Age grade were all on ground to celebrate with proud one of their own and appealed to youths to ensure they pursue wisdom and knowledge through enterprise and entrepreneurship to be able to survive and succeed even in the desert to be celebrated like Nwatakwochaka rather than engage in frivolities as well as smoking hemps.
Again, Chairman, Otiekwe Umuono, Amata Chigozie described the house warming outing by Ken Christ as an act of encouragement for other youths especially those who felt their families were poor to sit up and take the challenge of liberating themselves and their families with God’s assistance and support.
Though the celebrant Ken Christ Ekene Ejiofor a.k.a Kwocha , Nwatakwochaka was overwhelmed by God’s glory in his life and attending to guests that he could not explain how he felt as he parked into his mansion , he was grateful to all that attended and asked God to bless them for rejoicing with him, even as he promised to tell his grass to grace story in no long time.

But his wife, Mrs Happiness Ejiofor flanked by their five children, 2 boys and 3 girls in a short encounter expressed joy at the goodness of God upon her family, saying that God has been good to her family, that He made impossible things possible in her family. She also extended appreciation to other families that came to share with them in their joy with them.

 The ceremony started with a Thanksgiving service at St John's Anglican Church Nise, with Reverend Canon Udemba Eze thanking God for His infinity mercies upon His children especially the gift of life.
 In his homily during service, Canon Eze admonished Christians to be responsible and target achieving any height they dreamt of as it is achievable. He urged them to stay away from evil things and to endeavor to accept the word of God.
In an interview, he advised Mr Ekene Ejiofor not to depart from the sight of God ,irrespective of any challenges that  might spring up even as he enjoined young ones to strive to establish themselves.

 The Elder Brother to Kwocha who enjoys the appellations of his brother as a home based, Mr Obiorah Ejiofor nearly wept for the glory of God upon their family and lamented their parents were no long alive to be part of the celebration. He recalled how hunger and deprivation made them object of mockery and even some mocked the in their face as poorest of the poor. He said their happiness was that their brother’s wealth has come home as they used to hear the story of his wealth asking God for health, protection and divine guidance upon his brother.

Ken Christ Ekene Ejiofor a.k.a Kwocha assures to tell his grass to grace story soonest with for youths to learn and struggle in honesty and truth at all times in order to survive and outlive their situations or their family situations.
