Uche Nwosu’s story is yet another of poetic grass to grace narrative we all pray and aspire to realize in different contexts.
Born to late Rev. Daniel Nwaobi Nwosu and Mrs Jemaimah Nwosu of Eziama Obaire in Nkwerre LGA, young Nwosu showed signs of survival as he successfully navigated his educational pursuits. While space will not allow the mention of other appointments,
energetic Uche had a big and daunting responsibility thrust on his shoulders when he became the Chief of Staff, Government House.
In the astounding case of the 47th anniversary of his birth, there cannot be a commemorative staleness because of a contemporaneity of his dreams, visionary poignancy and revolutionary entrepreneurship.
Each day in his chronically exciting life is a prodigious statement full of conceptualizations and a flourish of ideas. With him, there is no dull moment.
A highly detribalized Nigerian, Ugwumba Uche Nwosu’s passion for excellence in all departments of life smacks of existential fanaticism that clearly domesticates survivalist responsibility. He does not subscribe to shortcuts. No half measures in any circumstance. He believes nothing is impossible as long as you have the vision, commitment and vibe. That is his philosophy of life which he tries to inculcate to his young admirers. All challenges are surmountable hence he does not take impossibility for an answer. To him, everything is doable as long as you put your mind to it. That is his impeachable resolution.
The superfluity of his philanthropy, which transcends consanguinity, is such that he does not like seeing people suffering. There have been instances where he met less privileged members of the society in sorry situations and had to intervene with alacrity in changing their lives. He does this without any class or other extraneous considerations. I doubt if there is any Imolite, living or dead, who has so lavishly empowered the youths, widows and orphans. His generosity is breathtaking.
Another intriguing aspect of this consummate humanist we are gladly celebrating today, especially, and other days, is his quintessential humility and simplicity.
Overall, Ugwumba Uche Nwosu, an unprecedented visionary symbol has a profundity of horse power like energy, enthusiasm and empathy running in his veins. At times, those who know him closely wonder whether he would ever change despite some unpalatable circumstances. I have the conviction that his beneficiaries’ prayers for him have the propensity to keep him for the next 47 years and possibly beyond.
Conversely, too, some persons hate his guts and style for multifarious and nondescript reasons. Unfortunately for the latter, Ugwumba Uche Nwosu does not harbour any ill feelings against anybody. From whatever prism, this man has affected and continued to affect uncountable lives. He enjoys offering Imolites and non-Imolites limitless opportunities particularly when he held the office of Chief of Staff.
Another amazing aspect of this youth prodigy, is the dept of cerebral endowment that startle everyone. The brilliance that underpins his thought processes is simply unimaginable. He has optimal ideas about virtually everything wrong in Imo State and talks confidently of how he would tackle them.
The writer does not know, yet, if there is any of his contemporaries who can be compared to him in terms of attitudinal dispositions, philanthropic invaluableness, generation of novelties and success profile. It seems, somehow, that there is divine manifestation in whatever he lays his hand upon which gives rise to Midas touch in all he does. A member of different professional bodies, Ugwumba Uche Nwosu does not compromise excellence and goes for the best in anything at stake: there is this amazing consciousness about quality. His profound optimism, mind fertility and business versatility are something else. He remains the biggest motivator of Nigerian youths. No wonder the youths dream to be like him. Indeed, Ugwumba mba nile could be likened to a citadel with youths exploring his fountain of knowledge and achievements via seminars, workshops and other strategic sessions.
Another characterization of this self-effacing celebrator is his noble disregard for people’s perception of him and what anyone may say concerning him. He focuses on what he believes in, vigorously pursues it. Over the years, this has worked and keeps working for him.
Ugwumba Uche Nwosu is a cultivator of acquaintanceship, companionship and friendship, but in the same breath, he does not hesitate in calling it quits if associational challenges arise in breach especially in the betrayal of trust. Surprisingly- because of his large heart, he graciously allows room for serial makeups and continual reunion. Contrarily, too, some of the relationships taste better as they get older just like a wine, with time. In his relational activities, he does not just nurture bosom relationships, he pampers most of his friends and even lucky staff in his employ. He also rewards hard working staff yearly to show appreciation.
A very remarkable young man and a study in diligence, Ugwumba Uche Nwosu endured many obstacles to be where he is today. For anyone to say that Nwosu is one of the emerging leaders of Imo State is an understatement, as he is indeed a role model to aspiring Imo youths.
An inspirational giant, highly imaginative and full of ideas, Ugwumba Uche Nwosu’s sense of humour and experimental management of human capital and other productive resources are inimitable. This is why humanity, just like Olive Twist, still expects more from this humble, hardworking and dedicated young man, who is also the Ugwumba of Eziama Obaire, Amaigbo and Obowo. Ochinanwata 1 of Abia state, Adeyemi of Yorubaland, Danzaki of Dass, Bauchi state, etc. Uche Nwosu is happily married to beautiful Uloma Nwosu and they are blessed with children.
May you continue to be a life-changer. This is wishing you many happy returns of today.
