Chief Samuel Onunaka Mbakwe (1929-2004) was the first civilian governor of Imo State. He served in that capacity between 1979 and 1983.
His legacies include:
- The Imo Modern Poultry
- Imo State University (now Abia State University)
- Imo Cargo Airport (built with a development levy on all Ndi Imo then).
As a politician, you must try to build a legacy. Let the impact of your life last longer than your life itself. Let people keep talking and posting blogs about you after you are gone from the scene politicaly or permanently.
How can they do that if you don’t live behind a legacy? Think about that.
