The former Chief of Staff to governor Rochas Okorocha, who was also the Action Alliance governorship candidate in the last governorship election in Imo State, Hon Uche Nwosu, over the weekend described Mr Jones Onwuasonaya, popularly known as “FCC Jones” as a genius, who is ever ready to add value to the development of the society.
Uche Nwosu stated this when Onwuasoanya, who is also his Director of Media and publicity, unveiled his Premier movie titled; Deep Death. The event took place at the National Council for Arts and Culture, Lagos State.
Nwosu who was the chairman of the occasion also described Onwuasoanya as a role model for youths, stating that Onwuasonaya has remained resilient and driven by passion. He advised Nigerian Youths to borrow a leaf from him. He said, Onwuasoanya has all the opportunity to venture into other businesses, but has remained passionate in his profession.
He also described Onwuasonaya as a workaholic. “I am in Lagos today to show love to a young man, who put in all he had to ensure we won the election, which they robbed us, even though we are optimistic to reclaim our mandate through the court”.
The occasion was witnessed by prominent sons and daughters of Imo and beyond, some of who sent representatives.
The trio of Hon Pascal Obi, House of Representatives member for Ideato North and South; Hon Kingsley Uju, House of Representatives member for Ohaji/Egbema/Oguta and Oru West and Hon Chike Okafor, House of Representatives member for Okigwe South Federal Constituencies, sent representatives to support the occasion.
Also speaking, Comrade Nwadike Precious, Publisher of Watchdog Newspaper said, even though he does not agree with the chief organizer of the event on issues of politics, he celebrates him when it comes to creativity.
He however, regretted that the facility he saw at the Zonal office of National Council for Arts and Culture is similar to what use to be at Mbari Kitchen before the former governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha demolished it, “only to build an empty hall for traditional rulers”. Nwadike maintained that Culture is part of the identity of Ndigbo and no true son of Igbo land should toy with culture.
He used the opportunity to advise the present administration to revive and rebuild Imo State Centre for Art and Culture, for the benefit of our children now and unborn.
Among other personalities that attended the occasion include;Chief Okeoma Nwosu, Mr. Bala, Chief Ben Odunze, Baba laje of Ibeju Lekki, Hon. Chigozie Ebereonwu.
