Enugu State governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi has showered praises on the accountant-general/permanent secretary of the state, Sir Paschal Okolie, for writing a book entitled My Memoirs on Financial Literacy.
Speaking as the special guest of honour at the book’s public presentation in Enugu recently, the governor congratulated Sir Okolie on the birth of “the child of his ingenuity and product of his endeavour”.
In a speech read by his representative on the occasion, deputy governor Barr. (Mrs) Cecilia Ezeilo, Ugwuanyi said: “Sir Okolie, I understand that this occasion is momentous for you as it signals the culmination of your efforts to pen down your thoughts on financial literacy, leveraging your career experience and expertise. It is also historical as it reckons your contribution to the extant stock of financial management principles spanning personal and organizational or corporate finance.”
Governor Ugwuanyi urged those privileged to have built unique expertise to grow the body of knowledge by sharing their experience with the upcoming generations through books.
Those who attended the book presentation ceremony included the Catholic bishop of Enugu Diocese, Rev. Dr C. V. C. Onaga, who was represented by Rev. Fr Igwesi; the chairman of the Enugu State Traditional Rulers Council, Igwe (Ambassador) Lawrence Agubuzu; and Chief Dr Cosmas Agu who was the chairman of the event. Professor J. U. J. Onwumere of the University of Nigeria, Enugu campus, was the book reviewer.
