Chief Christian Obumneme Nwogu, the Omekaodimma of Nnewi, has singlehandedly tarred a 1.05 Kilometer-road for his community in Obiofia, Otolo, Nnewi Anambra State.
The community has been known to have bad, impassible roads and during the rainy season, it leads to flooding in the community.

The formerly impassible road caught the attention of Chief Obumneme Nwogu and he decided to fix it with funds from his own pocket .
The reconstructed road was commissioned today, 23rd January 2020, by His Royal Highness, Igwe K. O. N Orizu III(Igwe Nnewi).
In his speech, Igwe Orizu called on Nnewi indigenes to work together to build Nnewi. He noted that structures like the tarred road lead to economic development.
We call on Igbos to emulate this kind of philanthropy. It is the Extraordinary Equianoism that leads to greatness. We also note the unity in Nnewi and call on Igbo communities to build up unity and a sense if community. We also call on communities to ensure bad eggs do not repay good with evil.
