Jim Ovia is the principal owner of Zenith Bank, and like a proper Igbo achiever who has used the principle of Equianoism to rise to the top, he continues to give generously. One of the ways Mr Ovia, who is from Delta State has given is through an annual scholarship programme.
The application deadline for this year’s given funding spree is November 15, and it is for Nigerian universities only. If you are an undergraduate of graduate student of a Nigerian university, you are eligible. To see more important details and to apply, go here.
The Ivy League universities in the US are the best universities in the US, and are widely considered the best in the world, together with Oxford and Cambridge in the UK. There only those that have got lots of money or lots of brains can be accepted.
Those are the schools where the presidents, kings, prime ministers and billionaires of this world send their kids to go get educated and connected. They are 8 in number.
It is extremely difficult to get into one, and getting into one prepares one for greatness; ask Barak Obama. Last year an Igbo, Harold Ekeh applied to enter all eight of them, and he was accepted by all 8.
This year an Igbo lady, Augusta Uwamanzu-Nna who is also friends with Harold Eke, decided to show that what an Igbo man can do, an Igbo woman can do better; so she applied to all 8 Ivy League universities, and guess what, they all accepted her.
This is a proud moment for me and for every Igbo. It shows he kind of things we could do in Nigeria here, if only merit was allowed to reign. We would move mountains.
Igbo ladies are just too much. Not only do they have the beauty, they also have the ethic to work hard and achieve. Take a look at the World Bank for instance. First Vice President from Africa was an Igbo woman, Ngozi Okonjo Iwealla. Since then, we have had 2 more Igbo women, Oby Ezekwesili and presently Arumah Oteh as Vice Presidents of the World Bank.
Our women are really trying everywhere. Now our ladies have an ever increasing number of role models to look up to. In closing let me say we hope to get more good news from Augusta Uwamanzu-Nna in the future.
Igbo Kwenu! This achievement and Harold Ekeh’s own are examples of the Resourceful Equianoism of the Igbos.
The Eze (Igbo traditionl ruler) of Amaofuo Autonomous Community in Imo State, Eze Peter Onyekwere Ebigbo, who is also a Professor of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN), has been elected to the International Council for
Rehabilitation of Torture Victims in Copenhagen, Denmark.
He is the first black African to be elected to the council.
Congrats, Sir. This appointment is Resourceful Equianoism. See more of the Eze’s achievents here.
Governor of Nigeria’s central bank, Godwin Emefiele has donated all gift he received from well-wishers during his mum’s burial to motherless babies homes in the Agbor area of Delta State.
Emefiele who comes from the Igbo part of Delta State paid surprise visits to the orphanages. This donation is Generous Equianoism.

Igbos are a great people. There is nothing the white man can do that we cannot do! Check out the picture of this drone this young Igbo boy built.
