International business executive and president, Globe Chambers of Commerce and Industry, Hon. Nwabueze Buchi George, has called for a substantive plan to be put down for the post-covid-19 era as the survival of both national and global economies will depend on that.

Hon. Buchi George who spoke from Abuja, Nigeria said, Nations must put good plans down even when no one knows when a vaccine will be found for Covid-19.

“Most nations are hit so hard because there are fewer imports and exports. There has been loses in business and jobs of which not all will recover from the effects of the pandemic”

“Africa especially should have a great plan on how to make great contributions to the global economy. We need to not just be consumers but grow as producers working had to solve some the global needs yearning for solutions” he said.

Speaking further, Hon. Buchi George believes in the usual manner Globe Chambers of Commerce and Industry has been promoting trade and investment potentials in Nigeria and Africa, more has to be done to unveil opportunities in Nigeria to the world.

Business / Buchi George Speaks On Plans For Post-covid-19 Era by hardynwa: 2:26pm On Jun 09
International Trade and Business Executive, Hon. Nwabueze Buchi George has likened his rise to prominence to painting on a canvas, saying it takes one stroke at a time to form the full image.

Buchi George who has been at the forefront of some international business and economic summits said that even when the picture of what he wants is incomplete, he is happy with where he is.

"Maybe this will inspire our youths but the life of a hardworking and ambitious person has to be planned and taken one step at a time", he said.

He added that the first thing is to have a plan and then following it step by step. "It feel like painting on a canvas; not every picture in the head of an artist are painted, and the same way, not all that are started are finished. Some start, give up and that's the end, while others who understand that every masterpiece was made by thousands of strokes, follow it gradually"

He recalled when he started his first company in 1999, with FOW Company Limited now registered in Nigeria, United States, United Kingdom, Canada and 15 other countries.

"I was still a student when the idea came and I put it down, kicked it off and gradually we are where we are today"

Hon. Nwabueze Buchi George who was speaking on how Nigerian youths especially can bounce back amidst the challenges of Covid-19, said the key thing to starting afresh or from scratch is planning and patience.

"The quick money syndrome has eaten down into the psyche of our youths in a way that people who have 5-year plan for instance look like fools amongst their peers.

"The truth is the only thing that takes away problems are solutions which means everyone should be busy thinking about the solution for the economic situation around the world"

He stated that youths who want to achieve something great take time to understand their environment and then find a way to help make it better.

While urging the Federal Government to have a sustainable plan that will lift Nigeria out of the Covid-19 lockdown effect, he advised that human capital development will be the easiest way out.

"Nigeria is a nation of entrepreneurs; almost everyone is into something but sometimes the environment and other infrastructural issues keep knocking them down. I'll go for a well planned support for SMEs, backed up with clear international relationships that will encourage both imports and exports between Nigeria and these countries"

Sitting as the president of Trade Nigeria, Globe Chamber of Commerce and other companies, Buchi George has shifted interested to 2021 with series of international business, investment and economic summits lined up.
"Covid-19 dealt us a blow, stopping up to five international events that were nearing kickoff dates and knowing we can't blame anyone for that, we have shifted plans to 2021, believing that the world will heal by that time"

With Nigeria – Asia Business and Economic Forum scheduled for China, Japan, Vietnam, and Taiwan put on hold because of Covid-19, there was also Euro – Africa Economic Summit 2020 and Africa – Asia Export Conference 2020 which failed to hold because of the global pandemic.

But with Canada-Africa Economic Forum scheduled for 2021, Buchi Gorge revealed that through Globe Chamber of Commerce they are shifting focus to 2021.

"We can't dwell on our loses, so we have to move on in our provision of international business solutions and we expect anyone who wants to succeed to move on with that", he said.

Celebrities / If Models Are Prostitutes, What Are Men Who Act Same Way - Adaimo Queen Isabella by hardynwa: 12:14pm On Apr 03, 2019

Having won the crown of Ada Imo in December 2018, Queen Isabella Chinenye Okafor speaks on how the crown has changed her life, her fears and what she plans to achieve before the end of her reign.

Queen Isabella who is a graduate of Federal University of Technology, a red carpet host and an actress, spoke with CHINEDU HARDY NWADIKE on this interview


How has it been since you won Ada Imo 2018 crown

Winning Ada Imo was an answered prayer, to me it was more of a divine honour from God who blessed the works of my hand through the Imo State Government led by His Excellency Owelle Anayo Rochas Okorocha.

It's been 3 months into my reign and so far it's been a beautiful reign, yet a mental sapping experience.
Since I won Ada Imo, my life, my career, sense of reasoning, manner of approach and so much has changed for the better and I love the fact that I am not just the Ada of my family but the Ada of my Great State, Imo and now fondly called "Ada Imo".

What are your plans as Ada Imo and what do you want to do better?
Amongst my several plans. one of them is to educate, encourage and enlighten the younger generations especially the Girl Child. by reviving and inculcating into them the good morals and dignity the Igbos, especially Imolites are known for, so as to be able to be a good ambassadors of not just our state but of every family they represent.

Another is, representing a true daughter of the Igbo race, in partnership with renowned bodies who are on the same journey of promoting and projecting the Igbo Culture to the world; our Identities, Igbo language, etc. to achieve our desired goals.

I also wish to improve, do better and attain a greater height in my community service projects, human development programs and humanitarian works.

What do you want to achieve in life?
To be on everyone's lips and memories even after my life on earth. To be remembered for my good deeds.

Let's look at your personal life. Do you think the crown has made you lose friends?
Oh yes! I have lost some of my bosom friends. I think I became too busy, mostly mentally busy, that sometimes I don't remember to reach out to them, I feel so bad about it and of course I miss them so much. I only wish they can understand and bear with me.

You were crowned under APC and now we'll be welcoming a PDP government, do you think you will be recognized?
I will feel very bad if the Incoming government neglects or ward off my office but it won't stop me from being an indigene of Imo neither will it stop me from diligently carrying out my duties as Ada Imo.

I won Ada Imo, it wasn't an appointment.

How much concern does what you wear give you and do you think you spend so much on it?

I am a very simple young woman and I love to dress simple and good looking. It doesn't give me much concern because Sammielle Couture and Smaris Couture have got my back in making sure I represent my identity.
To be addressed as I am dressed, it's only important I spare some money to achieve that.

People often see models as prostitutes in disguise. Have you ever been treated as one?
I like the sentence "people often see" in other words, an assumption which I feel is baseless.
If women who provide men that which their flesh craves for are seen as "prostitutes" what then do we call the men who have this cravings and go in search of its satisfaction?

I am human and a woman who has flesh and blood running through my veins, I don't give room and will never give room to be degraded or downcast for answering a nature's call.

Models are rather Change makers in our society.

What do you love doing for fun?
I dance, I travel, in other words change my location. For fun I think I love sightseeing.

Who is Queen Isabel hooked with at the moment?
I am hooked with Christ Jesus and my family. (laughs)

You have featured in some movies, what happened to that part of your life... Is it gone?
Oh yeah, acting demands quite a simple yet ambiguous task "Time".
I had to take a break so I can concentrate on my academics and graduate, now I am done with my 1st degree, I have some good time to dedicate to acting and give it my best.

Who do you look up to in the industry and why?
In the industry I look up to Stephanie Okereke Linus and Mercy Johnson.
These women makes being a Nollywood Star worth attaining, they never let acting disrupt the essence of their existence, they touch lives positively, they are globally recognized for the roles they play in the society, and same time, they uphold the dignity of their families.
They are adorable.

Would you encourage a young girls to join modelling and what advice would you give such persons?

I'll encourage young girls who are up to 18 years of age to join modeling, not because you want to be a celebrity like Queen Isabella who you feel is a celebrity but because you have passion for modeling and that you have a target which you can use modeling as a pathway to reach.
Make sure you are going to be happy and fulfilled being a model.

Who has pulled most influence in your life?
Stephanie Okereke Linus.
She was once a beauty Queen, She's an actress, Women's activist, a humanitarian to mention but a few.

If you have the opportunity to say I love you to just someone, who would that be?

I love my Mother and I show it every single day.
If I am opportune to say I love you to just someone, it would be someone in my dreams, no point in mentioning names at the moment.
