Elder Sunny Nwosu’s passion and commitment in piloting the affairs of All Ngwa Cultural Organisation (ANCO) know no bounds since he assumed headship as the president-general of the foremost socio-cultural body of the Ngwa clan for almost a decade now.
He assumed leadership of the organisation when death cut short the tenure of Col Emeka Ezindu (retd). Since then, the narrative of the body has changed and there has been a turn-around in its fortunes. Under Nwosu's watch, the numerous property, especially the landed estate have been adequately protected from encroachment and possible appropriation by external forces through fencing. One landmark achievement in this area is warding off possible encroachment of the Prison Service.
Under Nwosu’s watch, ANCO has erected at its No 1, Factory Road, Aba, headquarters, an edifice known as the Ngwa Cultural Hall.
Also, harmony and synergy among major stakeholders of its affiliate unions, government and traditional rulers – which almost took flight in the previous times - have been fully restored through the instrumentality of Nwosu's leadership. Now the affiliate unions have their meeting halls and the image of the Ngwa clan is not only promoted but boosted.
Nwosu could not have achieved this outside his rich family background. His birth to two notable clerics – late Rev Apostle I. A Nwosu and Rev Mrs Cecilia Nwosu of Ayaba Okpuala in Ngwa-Ukwu Autonomous Community, Isiala Ngwa North Local Government Area of Abia State – gave him a strong footing in life.
Eld Nwosu’s B Sc in accountancy and other certificates is complemented by theology with a diploma from Emmaus Bible Centre, Africa.
His work experience and awards is broad: He is managing director, Fenco Nigeria Integrated Services,; chairman, Icablesmic Nigeria; pioneer secretary of the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, Abia Chapter; former chairman, Police Community Relations Committee, PCRC; lecturer, Niger Delta Polytechnic, Aba Study Centre; lecturer, Niger Delta Innovation Enterprise Institute, Aba.
A financial consultant to government agencies and Ambassador of Peace from Peace International, Nwosu was awarded a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) from Pilgrims University Theological Seminary in April, 2017.
ANCO's emergence dates back to 1972. The aims and objectives of the body of the body are to foster unity and patriotism among Ngwa people; promote their cultural heritage; stimulate socio-cultural and political awareness among Ngwa people; provide a forum for exchanging ideas, mutual understanding and cooperation among Ngwa people and their neighbours; to educate, organise, sensitise and influence public opinion in matters affecting the interest of Ngwa people and pursue the actualisation of such interest.
Others are to present the interests and aspirations of the body to government or any other appropriate body; to ensure appropriate representation of Ngwa people into local, state, national government irrespective of party affiliations; to provide facilities for interaction and recreation; to encourage the establishment of progressive clubs, unions, associations and organise groups at home and abroad.
Nwosu’s passion and commitment in driving the aspirations of ANCO has paid off, and he deserves another turn; as “one good turn deserves another.”
