Good Evening Ladies and Gentlemen!
I am extremely honored to be receive such an important Philanthropy Award. Frankly speaking, I am earnestly grateful for the recognition I have received for my humanitarian services toward my people because I am very sure that every other nominee for this award was as capable if not more, of winning this award.
Honestly, this is a very auspicious, propitious and promising moment for me as we all have gathered to celebrate the success of our humanitarian services for our people.
I am here to deliver my speech on this occasion; it’s a great honor for me to be given accolades and award as the philosophy man of the year, 2019. I am truly obliged for this great honor and recognition given by the management and the organizer.
I have faced several challenges in my upbringings where I suffered much but today I am doing my humanitarian jobs because I don’t want the children of the poor to suffer what I have suffered and I am sure with Emeka Ike foundation, we will make our society a living place but before I proceed , I want to make it public that among all my challenges I never went weak but each one of them has only strengthened me to make me the person I am today; a thorough professional Business mogul who knows exactly what he wants; someone who sets his eyes on a goal and does not lose sight of it, unless it is achieved.
Winning this award would not have been possible without the inspiration I have received from my friends and my colleagues, staff, and people of Mbaitoli/Ikeduru Constituency, for whom I have the deepest respect, and from whom I have derived the strength to challenge myself and perform better at each stage.
I sincerely thank each one of you for helping me reach a stage where I can proudly hold up this award as a mark of my achievement. I also promise to only get better at my work so that you can see me here for more such awards.
However, permit me to dedicate this special award to special constituents of Mbaike, I promised to always be there for them.
Hon. Emeka Ikedi
President Emeka Ikedi foundation.
