A South East traditional ruler, who was a top political activist, Eze-Igwe Willy Ezugwu, has felicitated with top oil merchant and chairman of Atlas Oranto Petroleum International, Prince Arthur Eze, on his 75th birthday anniversary.
The monarch, who is the Eze Ogbozarra III of Opi Ancient Kingdom, the Igwe of Ibagwa Ogbozarra Opi Autonomous Community, and the Eze Ka Eze 1 of Ideke land, Nsukka, Anambra State, congratulated the entrepreneur and statesman in a statement he personally signed and issued to newsmen in Abuja, yesterday.
The Eze-Igwe 1 of Ibagwa described Prince Arthur Eze as “an outstanding Igbo son whose lifetime achievements have placed him at the top of where decisions are taken, not just in Igbo land but also in the country as a whole.”
“Prince Arthur Eze has so distinguished himself so much that he no longer needs any further introduction in any part of the country once his name is mentioned”, Eze-Igwe Ezugwu noted.
He added, “I, on behalf of my kingdom, congratulate this exceptional South East son and a national icon as he clocks 75 years of age.
“We join other Nigerians at home and in the diaspora to pray that his goodwill among Nigerians will not diminish as he remains a guiding light for Ndigbo in his new age and beyond,” he said.
