Umujagbo village Okpuno Awka, country home of Chief Amobi Daniel Nwokafor in Awka South Local Government area of Anambra State, was a beehive of cultural activities at the weekend, as the chartered accountant and strategic management expert was initiated into the Ozo society of Awka kingdom.
It was, indeed, a historical event as the agelong dream of the former president-general of Awka Development Union came to fruition.
Nwokafor’s compound played host to Ozo titleholders, who came in their numbers adorning their regalia to witness the conferment of Ozo Awka title on Nwokafor.
Although there are about five traditional titles in Awka town viz Amanwulu, Chi, Ayajioku, Ajaghija and Ozo respectively, but the Ozo traditional title is the most revered because of the rigorous processes of screening and cleansing to ascertain the personality of the individual gunning for the Ozo title.
Ozo Awka was the title the traditional institution of Awka ancient kingdom bestowed on former president- general of the town union whom they all attested to the fact that he pioneered some of the infrastructure development in the area.
Some of the elder Ozo titleholders, who spoke about Nwokafor, said he is a man of impeccable character.
They said his tenure as the boss of Awka Development Union brought a lot of transformations to Awka town and that the Ozo Awka title conferred on him was well deserved. Chief Dozie Nweke-Nwezeobuna, Ozo Agudeuzulu of Umuayom village, Awka, said that the celebrator was the architect of the progress in Awka town when he was the president-general of the town union.
Agudeuzulu said that Amobi did only one term as president-general but handed over to his successor unlike most persons who want to sit-tight syndrome and refuse to relinquish power. On the other hand, Chief Jeff Ezechukwu Nweke, Ozo Zuluezu of Amikwo village Awka, said the Ozo Awka society is an assembly of good people in Awka kingdom and that Chief Dr.Amobi Daniel Nwokafor has also joined the fold by virtue of his initiation into the Ozo Awka society.
Ozo Zuluezu, howeve, described Nwokafor as a very good man and by the conferment of Ozo Awka title on him, he has been given the mandate of the people to continue speaking the truth at all times, exposing evil and not taking sides.
