He announced that the foundation planned to build about 50 houses for poor widows in the town before the end of June 2023.
“Since 2003 we established this Foundation, we have been growing higher and stronger, we have never looked back, it has been over a decade and God has been faithful,” he said.
Mrs Ify Obinabo, Commissioner for Women Affairs who represented the Anambra government at the event urged women to continue to be agents of positive change in the society and endeavour to raise good homes in spite the loss of their husbands.

Nweke said God has used Offor to make life and those of other beneficiaries worth living through his numerous philanthropic gestures.
