There are some friends you make somewhere along the path of life and you just begin to wonder where they've been all your life.

They are people who without inclinations to political aspiration, genuinely feel the pulse of people around them, and can't hold back that indulgent impulse to impact on the lives of those people around them.

Chief Dr. (Amb.) Ikenna Chidozie Aniche is one of those rare species of human kind. Year in, year out, he continues to challenge himself to fill that vacuum, to yield to the yearning, to contribute more to help people in such a way that the general Nigerian perspective look forward to seeing his campaign posters, in the next round of elections... But it has not happened.

Sometime in February 2017, a priest of the Catholic Diocese of Okigwe, Rev Fr. Christian Udeabam of Holy family Catholic parish, mbato, Amosu, Umulolo, OKIGWE, was attacked by gunmen and dispossessed of his car, somewhere in Okigwe, on his way back to the vicarage. All efforts to recover the car proved abortive till date.

Today, Chief Ikenna Chidozie Aniche, Nke Nke Enyi Izuogu gburu-gburu 1-12 and Nwannedinamba of Ihioma put smiles on the face of Fr. Udeabam by handing over to him, the keys to a brand new Montero Sport Mitsubishi Jeep, fully registered in the name of the Priest. This according to Chief Aniche is to remind the priest that "God has a reason for whatever happens to in our lives, maybe this is God's design for us to become friends and for me as a lay faithful to obtain God's favour by sowing into your life".

Fr. Udeabam could not hold back his joy, as he prayed for Chief Aniche and promised to continue praying for him.

Nkenke Enyi Izuogu who is still mourning his late Father, Ugwumba Aro-Amuro, also used the opportunity to invite the priest and his colleagues to his Father's burial slated for Saturday 5th August, 2017 in his hometown, Amuro Okigwe.
