Amb. John Fashanu and Amb. Rachel Bakam are doing so well together. Recently, they were conferred with Chieftancy titles at the Ofala festival from the Eze Okwe Kingdom and the Enugu State Government. This is geared towards bridging differences in Communities, celebrating selfless service to human development and for being friends of the community.
Amb Chief John Fashanu is now Ofia-Afulu-Agu of Okwe Kingdom (meaning: The forest that contains the Lion) and Amb Chief Rachel Bakam is now Ugo-Di-Namba of Okwe Kingdom (meaning Beautiful Eagle Queen from another Kingdom).
Quoting Chief Rachel's words; "At first we were skeptical due to spiritual conotations but we discovered that this traditional community brings together Christians, Moslems and various tribes under one umbrella for the purpose of unity without any fetish acts. Thanks to HRH Crown Mayor of Nike - Igwe (Dr) Emmanuel O. Ugwu - Anyanwu N'awalu Oha 1 of Ibagwa Nike Enugu for this unique unifying vision. We will visit the Community soon and will be adorned with our Chieftancy regalia. We will also release pictures soon".
Not too long before this, the duo Amb John Fashanu and Amb Rachel Bakam were each honoured with the prestigious Sir Tafawa Balewa Leadership Award in Kaduna.
