Abia Community Leader Makes Case For Cairo Gold Medalist, Esther Ogechika Nworgu, Says Mother Homeless


A Community Leader in the Ukwa West Local Government Area of Abia State, Elder Moses Ezeribe, has called on the Federal Government to honour Miss Ogechika Nworgu and her team mates for their outstanding performance in the just concluded African Para-Powerlifting Championship that held in Cairo, Egypt.

He also appealed to the respective States of the Champions to appreciate them for putting up spectacular performances in Cairo.

Miss Nworgu, who won a total of eight gold medals during the Cairo event, was not born crippled. She is the third among five children, and hails from Umuaka in the Ukwa West Local Government Area of Abia State.

In a message circulated in popular online platforms, Ezeribe appealed to the wife of the Governor of Abia State, Deaconess Nkechi Ikpeazu, to come to the aid of Esther’s mother, who he said does not have a home currently, adding that her family and the people of Ukwa West would forever remain grateful the woman benefits from the Widows and Indigent Shelter Scheme (WISS) of the Governor’s wife.

The Community leader, however, thanked the Deputy Chief of Staff to the Governor, Office of the Deputy Governor, Abia State, Chief Don Ubani for bringing to the fore the achievement of Esther.
