By Leonard Okachie

Dr Chidia Maduekwe, Managing Director of the Nigerian Film Corporation, pleaded for a mass mobilization of citizens to promote creative and innovative entrepreneurship.

Maduekwe said this Monday in a keynote address at the third edition of the Isingwu summit held at Umuda Okorocha Isingwu in the Umuahia North Local Government Area of ​​Abia.

He spoke on the theme: “Mobilizing creative and innovative grassroots entrepreneurs for community development.”

He said the country needs to embrace the concept of creative and innovative entrepreneurship for it to experience rapid development.

Maduekwe described the concept as “the handy fruits of economic empowerment and accelerated national development”.

He said the country needs to fill all existential gaps and expand the support structures that foster entrepreneurship.

According to him, this must start with institutional commitments, policy frameworks and implementation, including the provision of appropriate incentives.

He said the necessary attention should be given to training and capacity building to improve the knowledge base and increase the capacities of the country’s creative and innovative entrepreneurs.

“We must consciously create an enabling political environment, not necessarily reinventing the wheel, but deliberately implementing the provisions of policies and laws,” Maduekwe said.

The leader of the Isingwu Progressive Forum / Summit, Reverend Chuks Alozie, described it as “a platform where people come together to harness ideas and exchange views with a comparative advantage for community development.”

“As an extension of our development effort, we will also focus on building human capacities and encouraging emerging entrepreneurs,” he said.

Earlier in his welcoming remarks, the General President of the community, Mr. Sam Onyesoanyi, thanked the organizers for bringing the development initiative to the community.

The highlight of the event was the appointment of some prominent Nigerians as national and international chaplains by the Divine Institute of Chaplaincy Corps International / United Chaplains State in New York.

The ceremony was performed by Professor Chris Nwanne, Commissioner / Chairman of the Body, African Region.

The event witnessed the awarding of prizes to some Nigerian personalities in recognition of their positive contributions to community development.

The list of winners included Alozie, who was decorated as the Major General, and Mr. Chris Akachukwu (otherwise known as Nwa-Abia), as Brig. Gen. From the body.

Others were the traditional chief of Avu, Eze Michael Okere, Maduekwe, the finance commissioner, Dr Aham Uko, the chief Kingsley Megwara, Mr. Aham Eluwa and Mrs. Chidinma Uwajumogu. (NOPE)
