*LANDMARK ACHIEVEMENTS OF NCHETA ELVIS OMEREKPE*
Chief Ncheta Elvis Omerekpe has touched lives tremendously in different parts of the state with the number of projects he has attracted.
But like the old saying goes; charity begins at home; thus his immediate community of Umuakwu and environs had the initial taste of the fortunes.
Before now, Umuakwu was a neglected and an isolated community due the deplorable state of the roads and the devastations caused by soil erosions that be devilled the community – but these are now in the past as the community has witnessed a tremendous turnaround in both road infrastructure and provision of basic amenities like, the solar-powered water projects in all the nine kindred of Umuakwu, skills acquisition centres, town halls and equipping of the community health centre.
Some of the projects attracted by Omerekpe some of which have been completed include:
* Construction and asphalting of 17 kilometres of virgin roads ( Never in the history of Abia state has it happened by an individual effort)
* Construction of Skills acquisition centres,
* Building of primary and secondary schools
* Distribution of vehicles and motorcycles.
* Building of Civic halls
* Free Medical outreach across Abia state
Such other philanthropic gestures include:

* Award of scholarships to undergraduate students
* Distribution of rice and fertilizers to indigent members of communities
* Donations to charity organisations and physically challenged homes across Abia

Curiously, all these have gone on unceasingly for the past 18 – years until 5 – years ago when the Ncheta Omerekpe Foundation birthed to anchor and chronicle all these humanitarian activities.
