The 15th of August 2023 was a day of worthy encomiums for High Chief Summers V.C Nwokie (Ph.D), as the entire traditional rulers (Ezes) in the Mbaise Nation collectively bestowed an illustrious title “Aka Ji Ikukuoma Mbaise” on him.

He thereafter pledged to put mechanisms in place to make sure that regular power/electricity supply within the three Mbaise Local Government Areas are guaranteed in a matter of months.

It was later followed by a triumphant return to his community,  Ezeagbogu in Ezinihitye Mbaise LGA, in a long entourage made up of his associates and friends, with thunderous sounds of traditional gun salutes renting the air as he berthed.
