About two decades ago when Dr. Okwun Ojah alongside his family struggled to live up-to their life taste in their country home in Amaekpu Ohafia, the book makers were quick to write him off despite being a focused young man with “big dreams”.
Though from a humble background, he was unrelenting of what he could achieve through his trademark hardwork, resilience, diligence and commitment. And that pushed him into studying medicine in Nigeria, before his international adventure where he has currently acquired more than seven (7) degrees, Law inclusive.
But amidst his intellectual exploit and conquest, it is Barr. Okwun Ojah’s underlying love for humanity and his penchant for human capital development that has caught the eye. As someone whose beginning was really humble with uneasy path, Chief Ojah has made the augmentation of the life of the people and society his primary preoccupation. In this, he has lived the talk, leaving no signs of slowing down.
