The award was in recognition of his support to youths, outstanding service to humanity and for excelling in the real estate sector.
â€œI am happy to present you this award of excellence as an emissary of global transformation, this is in recognition of your hard work, commitment, passionate professional capabilities, unquestionable landmark achievements in real estate management, evaluation of lands and properties, youth and student development initiatives and selfless service to humanity and our country Nigeria in particular,â€ said Ambassador Lolade Paul, chairman of the award committee, while presenting the award.
After receiving the award, Ume-ezeoke thanked the National Youth Congress and expressed his commitment towards supporting youths in Nigeria.
He noted that Nigerian youths possess great potentials that should be properly channeled towards achieving national development and economic growth.
He urged youths to see themselves as capable of bringing Nigeria to greater global recognition through their contributions and hardwork in every sector they find themselves.
“Thank you for this honour and award. I can assure you that I will continue to support the development of the Nigerian youth, and through my work in the real estate and property sector and other human capacity development projects, I will continue to employ and prepare Nigerian youths for the task of nation building.
