Today, I was previlege to attend ‘ABA SUMMIT’ organised by Abia Think Tank Association (ATTA) headed by Mazi Sam I. Ohuabunwa, OFR at Terminus Hotel, Aba Abia State Nigeria from start to finish.
This program being the first of its kind attracted the presence of Abia intellectuals, professionals, lovers of Abia and investors from different parts of the world. Some of the men who I have great respect for that were present includes; Prof. Pat Utomi, Prof. Barth Nnaji and Prof. Ikechi Mgbeoji.
These men spoke extensively in a way that inspired me to keep doing my best in making Aba work. According to Mazi Sam I. Ohuabunwa’s keynote address, he stated that “intellectual capital thrives on ideas, ideas being the bedrock and touchstones of man’s creative ingenuity.” He believed that “ideas well-projected conduce into great accomplishments to bring about a paradigmatic shift in the developmental trajectory of any human society.”
During the Breakout Session on Strategic Dialogue, I made a wonderful suggestion on the way forward towards achieving the Aba of our dream and believe me, it brought meaningful increase to my contact list.
The MD/CEO of Starline Industries Limited, Mazi Clement Owunna why sharing his experience with us told us that Starline is now 65 years old and that he inherited the business from his father.
When asked what the secret of his company was he said; “key is persistence and readiness to invest in home.” He admonished everyone to invest in Aba. He said the hope of Geometric Power is the hope of the Igbo nation.
We explored diverse areas where investors can invest in Aba from manufacturing to tourism and from education to local fabrication of machines.
Indeed, the vision of Abia Think Tank Association has come to stay. We call on investors from around the globe to see Aba, Abia State Nigeria as an investment Haven.
I want to specially thank my latest Mentor and Model, Mazi Sam I. Ohuabunwa, OFR – a Change Agent, a Godfearing man, and the President of Abia Think Tank Associatio for his vision.
