Today in Lagos, the Management of the Ugwumba Leadership Center paid a courtesy visit to the US Consular General, Mr Will Stevens, who was ably represented at the meeting by Mr Joseph Kruzich, the Spokesperson and Head of Public Affairs at the US Consulate in Lagos.
At the meeting, our President, His Excellency, Ugwumba Uche Nwosu informed the Consulate that his vision of founding the Center is to support youth and women empowerment across the country. According to him, his experience growing up is the only motivation behind the programs and activities of the center. He announced that the Center has supported over 5,000 young entrepreneurs in Nigeria and a community of over 20,000 youths and women in Africa.
Earlier in his introduction, our Executive Director, Remy Chukwunyere informed that the Center embarked upon the visit to appreciate the Consulate for its contributions towards the social and economic development of Nigeria and to request a partnership opportunity with the Consulate.
In his response, Mr Joseph Kruzich congratulated the Ugwumba Leadership Center for its various achievements. He used the opportunity to enumerate possible areas of collaboration and requested the Center to do the needful and revert.
Ladies and gentlemen, we are anxiously anticipating a collaboration with the Consulate, which shall open up more opportunities for Ugwumba youths and women, especially in the Southern part of Nigeria.

To God be the glory!
