Speaking to TRUMPETA on receiving the award, the Obibiezena Ancient Kingdom royal father expressed his feelings this way:”Am very happy. This is the best of 27 awards I have so far received. I am proud to be counted among other awardees including the prominent Catholic prelate, Archbishop Emeritus of Owerri Archdiocese, His Grace, Most Rev. Anthony J.V Obinna and others nominated but screened down to the last four prominent citizens who are receiving the award together with me today”, he declared.

As a philanthropist, he used the forum to appeal to other monarchs to provide for widows and the less-privileged in society describing such benefactors as those “at risk families”.

According to him, such helps attract God’s blessings. “Personally, I have testimonies of rewards received for such care and support to the needy”, he explained. He added that such support includes scholarship awards for students.

Obibiezena royal father explained further that his business conglomerate includes sand dredging which has accumulated the biggest dump in the state. Consequently, he said, he is compelled to now offer 10% discount on every purchase. He disclosed that yearly, he offers 48 plots of land to prospective farmers especially widows and other less-privileged people plus additional support of N100,000 for labour force for crop cultivation.
