"I am one of the most affluent personalities in Nigeria today but at a point in my life, I never believe I could have N5000 in life but now the story has changed for the better, we talk in million today if not billions, the only way to show gratitude to God is to extend his goodness upon me to others.

"Go to any village in Anambra state, I make bold to claim that none of them can compare with Umuanuka, if there is any tell me. If we have done that in my village, what do you think of the world we are trying to build for the state, we have seen Japan, we have seen Dubai, it is my intention to replicate what I have seen in those places here.

"At 21, I built my own house here, its a storey building, married to a rich man's daughter when my father's house was even a mud house but she left her father's house and accepted me. It is all about being focused and determined to succeed. I am determined to put Anambra state on the world map.

"Things are so hard for people in Nigeria and it is our desire to alleviate their sufferings through what we are doing, imagine a graduate of ten years standing coming to beg to be our vendor. If that man fail to get the job only God knows what will follow next, we intend to give hope to the hopeless.
