Dr Ifeanyi .C. Odii, a man of Spartan Will whose courage and love for excellence were fired by an unflinching faith in God, Ifeanyi Chukwuma Odii launched into further positive entrepreneurial explorations, investing in fresh vistas of business opportunities. God rewarded Ifeanyi Chukwuma Odii’s efforts with phenomenal successes. Today, Ifeanyi Chukwuma Odii’s entrepreneurial journey which began with selling confectioneries to peers in Isu Achara Primary School, has blossomed into a conglomerate of blue-chip companies with insurable global interests in oil and gas, agriculture, hospitality, financial services, ICT and more, under the flagships of Orient Global Companies and Ultimus Holdings.
Burning with inflammable desire not just to put temporal smiles but to permanently be the smiles on people’s faces, Ifeanyi Chukwuma Odii did not channel the enthralling yields of his entrepreneurial breakthroughs to the acquisition of exotic tastes and vainglorious titles. Humble and humane Odii chose to invest his blessings into charity. He established Ebele and Anyichuks Foundation as a vehicle for his outreach to the needy. A personification of gratitude, Ifeanyi Chukwuma Odii alongside his wife, Ebele, has through this foundation shown gratitude to his home community of Isu; his local government area of origin, Onicha; his federal constituency, Ohanivo; senatorial district, Ebonyi South; and his home state, Ebonyi State. Ifeanyi Chukwuma Odii has equally sown significant seeds of charity in his geopolitical zone which is the Southeast; his State of residence, Lagos and his country, Nigeria: Ifeanyi Chukwuma Odii has donated a two-storey well-equiped modern classroom block to his alma mater, Isu Achara Primary School. He equipped women and youths of his community with simple machines, devices and start-up capitals to enable them ply their various trades and attain economic independence. The foundation waged a great war against mental poverty in Ebonyi State by distributing books and instructional aids to secondary schools in Ebonyi State; and thereby contributed to the improved performances of Ebonyi students in WAEC and NECO to the point that Ebonyi State ranked 10th in the federation. Periodically, Ebele and Anyichuks foundation provides free medical services for the aged, the young and children in rural communities in Ebonyi State. During the Covid-19 lockdown which destroyed many families’ means of livelihood and inflicted hunger on the people across the country, Ifeanyi Chukwuma Odii and his wife, Ebele, invoked their bottomless reservoir of compassion and donated a whopping N150 Million to Ebele and Anyichuks Foundation for intervention in the plights of Nigerian families. From the fund, the foundation donated the sum of N20 Million to the Federal Government; N20 Million to Lagos State Government; and N10 Million to Ebonyi State Government. The sum of N100 Million was used to procure bags of rice and sundry relief materials for 33,000 indigent and zero-income families in Lagos and Ebonyi States. Ebele and Anyichuks Foundation equally invested resources into Covid-19 protocol awareness campaigns.
This is the first time a crowd and dense population of this magnitude is seen in a rally that is organized in solidarity of a man who is not an elected political office holder in Ebonyi State.
