MADUKA, Dr Godwin




Umuchukwu in Orumba south Local Government Area of Anambra State, formerly known as Nkerefi was hitherto known as one of the backward and remote communities in the state, as it was totally bereft of any meaningful government attention, even to the extent that about 90 percent of Anambra Stare people had never heard about the community. Because of the growing poverty and absence of opportunities, the community was high in criminality, which climaxed with the kidnap of the community’s traditional ruler, Igwe Michael Ukaegbu. But all these negative attributes were changed by one of their illustrious sons, DR. GODWIN MADUKA, a United States of America (USA) based medical practitioner, who through his foundation he set up about 17 years ago, brought projects to the community. When DR. GODWIN MADUKA’s foundation visited the then Governor Peter Obi at Government House Awka, with the pathetic story of the deplorable state of their roads in Umuchukwu, they had elected to bear 50 percent cost of the construction of the roads. This moved the then Governor Peter Obi who visited the community himself and was overwhelmed by what he saw, and then promised that the Anambra State Government would take over the responsibility of those roads. The former Governor of the State, Mr. Peter Obi, had to construct two roads connecting Umuchukwu and other neighbouring communities. DR. GODWIN MADUKA built: 1) two churches, one each for the Anglicans and Catholics. (2) built Trinity Hospital and Maternity. (3) over 100 standard houses for widows and the poor in the area. (4) Built Immaculate Conception International College 1 and 2 , with buses donated to them. (5) he built a police station for security. (6) he built a magistrate court. (7) a standard market called (Afor Market), . (8) built barracks for the Civil Defense staff, (9) built two monasteries for churches. (10) built community centre (Community Hall and his own Village Hall). (11)built, post office. (12) built a state high court. (13) provided transformers to boost electricity in the community. (14) built mighty edifices for primary and secondary schools. (15) built a palace for the monarch, civic centre,. (16) built houses for clerics of Catholic and Anglican churches, among others. (17) built Five star hotel known as Lion of Africa resort. (18) the 15 storey tall building is part of the World class International standard Hospital / Health research institute (which will serve as the destination of all health matters in Africa, since it will be the biggest and the best of it kind in African soil).
