Renowned Nigerian philanthropist and the Founder of Alex Ikwechegh Foundation, Chief (Hon) Alex Mascot Ikwechegh, has unveiled plans to grade roads in rural communities of Abia state, Southeast, Nigeria.

The rural roads grading, which is being carried out under the Alex Ikwechegh Foundation, will take place simultaneously across all the three Abia North, Central and South senatorial districts on February 3, 2021.

Chief Alex, Founder of GrossField Group, through his Foundation, has therefore directed rural dwellers to identify roads that needs grading in their communities and reach the Foundation through 08064119000 or 08033023854 for action.

This latest philanthropic gesture from the Abia born Chief Alex Ikwechegh does not come as a surprise to many owing to his numerous projects and programs for humanity, community development outreach and nation building initiatives, across Abia state and Nigeria at large.

Ahead of last year’s yuletide season, as it has always been an old tradition for the Alex Ikwechegh Foundation boss, Chief Alex donated several items including bags of rice, cartons of noodles, fuel, kerosene and other palliatives to households and orphanage homes.

Chief (Hon) Alex Ikwechegh, the ‘Nkuma Dike Ndigbo’ and Igbere pride, has through his Alex Ikwechegh Foundation, over the years, donated to the poor and carried out several unprecedented philanthropic gestures across the country.

His distribution of free fuel and kerosene to Abians have become an annual event in the whole of Abia state, including the commercial city of Aba, a gesture which marks the philanthropist’s August 25th birthdays.

During the recent coronavirus-imposed lockdown across the country, the founder of GrossField Group and billionaire business mogul embarked on massive distribution of free palliatives to the good people of Abia state.

He also, through his Alex Ikwechegh Foundation, donated cash gifts and other items to widows in Abia and offset the hospital bills of many including a woman whose fingers were allegedly cut off by Fulani herders in the State.

Hon. Ikwechegh had in 2019 donated household items including mattresses, pots, buckets, food items and clothing to victims of police attacks in Ndiegoro, a community in Aba South local government area of Abia.

Also not left out in Alex Ikwechegh’s numerous philanthropic acts is the former NEPA cash office in Igbere, which now wears a new look, following its reconstruction by the philanthropist.

In the area of security, because Alex Ikwechegh believes his people must be protected at all times, the Aba-born philanthropist has carried out donation of vehicles to several vigilante groups.

As a lover of education, Hon. Alex Ikwechegh has thousands of students under his Alex Ikwechegh Foundation scholarship scheme, including pupils and students from Abia.

He singlehandedly reconstructed the Igbere Community secondary school in Igbere, Abia State, and has continued to donate millions to uplift the downtrodden and orphans in the society at every given opportunity.

On December 10, 2020, Chief Alex was honoured at the prestigious IgbereTV Leadership Excellence Awards as ‘personality of the year’ for his contribution to national development. This came weeks after the philanthropist bagged another award by “Project 20:2020”, alongside the minister of finance, Dr. Zainab Ahmed; Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna state, among several high profile Nigerians, in Abuja.

Late last year, 2020, a non-governmental organization based in Edo state, The Ransco Network International named Chief Alex Ikwechegh as ‘The Most Inspiring Pride Of The Nation’ for his contributions to humanity, community development and nation building.
