While the introduction was going on, Nwa-chineke Ugwu reported the difficulties some of our members were complaining of, in joining the meeting through the link that has been dropped already and asked if any of the persons in the meeting had any difficulty with the link before joining the meeting, which one of the Obinwannem news writers (Onyeka Chekwube) complained of her own experience due to multiple links but she later discovered the real link and joined.

Also one of the state representatives complained that the software cannot contain more than 10 persons at a time.

In response to that, Ugwu Okechukwu (Gen. Director Obinwannem) created another link with his second phone to contain more persons that would want to join the meeting, which solved that problem for those that are trying to be part of the meeting.

Nwa-chineke Ugwu Okechukwu after dropping the link complained bitterly about the non – responsive attitude of some of Our state executives which is evident in their work and even their response to meetings, he described such acts as rebellious and further admonished all obinwannem and Igbo faithful to always be proud of whom they are at all times.

He further solicited more commitments from Obinwannem members, He then called on Nwa-chineke Nnenna to address everyone present as a member of the company board members but Nnenna was disconnected at that point in time due to network issues.

Which made him call on Nwada Nnaji Chinedu the Enugu media director to share her experience and also tell us her challenges so far, Our Nsukka studio director Nwada chinedu Nnaji said that the movement is moving positively in spite of all the challenges they face most times due to financial constraints which have made them unable to pay their existing workers as supposed not to talk of recruiting new workers in some important departments that needs recruitment.

She reported the product of the meeting she had on our behalf with some of the personnel that will guide us on setting up a radio station 🚉, and said that what we can afford to start with is community radio 📻 station 🚉 which will cost us above 1.5 million Naira to set up for work.

She further pointed out the role of setting up a radio station which will go a long way in projecting Obinwannem and what we stand for to our brothers and sister around us.

After her report Nwa-chineke Ugwu called for more experience from our members in setting up our radio station saying that we need both Igbo and English Broadcasters, he also solicited for sponsorships to sustain the work and complete our works on the ground.

Some workers and their salaries

1). Ijeoma Njoku (Obinwannem Chief Writing) – #30,000
But it’s currently paid #10,000
2). Onyeke Chekwube (Asst. Chief Writer) – #20,000
But is currently paid #5,000

He then brought up a new suggestion for the payment of Obinwannem workers, according to Nwada Onyeke Chekwube ( the asst. writer) she said that their major challenge most time is how to sustain their data subscription demands for work which is majorly online which makes them not to stay online as supposed.

After these Mazi Ugwu now talked about Shares and Investment in the Company,
He said that the Company is estimated at $250,000,
Over $60,000 having already been invested, the company was just needing like $20,000 more to boast everything and One Percent (1%) share in Obinwannem is at $1,000 (One Thousand Dollars), that’s about the shares of Obinwannem.

The Tax we pay is for the 10% ( Ten Percent) share set aside for those that have talents, they will work for Obinwannem and will not be paid as supposed, some of the worker’s start-up payment is #20,000, and in a case where the person is been paid #5,000 per month instead of #20,000, the remaining #15,000 will be used in buying some percentage shares on monthly basis depending on the number of months the person worked and the amount involved, in this regard, for you to have up to 1% (One Percent) share in Obinwannem, you must have up to $1,000 ( one thousand dollars) investment in Obinwannem.

Then those that don’t have money but are willing to be paying some certain amount are allowed to be paying in instalments depending on the amount you can pay and once your monthly contributions are up to $1,000(one thousand dollars) you will be one of the shareholders in obinwannem, and once you become a shareholder, you will start earning some percentage from all the business activities of obinwannem.

But in a case where your monthly contributions were not up to #500,000 or $1,000 in the space of 3 years, Obinwannem will calculate and refund you all your money and may add a little compensation interest and the idea of tax is for those that cannot pay for the shares once.

After this, he gave room for suggestions Anambra State Director ( Eze Ugonna) said that everything said is ok by him and he is in total support and will work towards complementing the agreement on his own side After that, Nwa-chineke Ugwu Okechukwu called on Enugu State Director (Mazi Chidera Ogbodo) who said that Enugu State is working in good shape among all the difficulties they face and further suggested that Obinwannem should set up a kind of business ( buying &selling) which will be sponsored by all concerned and we can also generate some funds to cater for some of our financial needs, pay up some bill and pay our workers and further said that one of the reasons why we are yet to hit the targeted milestone is due to financial constraints and we have to follow it gradually.

Mazi Ugwu explained his past experience as regards the suggestions which was the reason why he never mentioned it because he want everything about Obinwannem to be for all ỤMỤ igbo not for some set of persons to enhance themselves.

He then called on other participants in the meeting who all expressed their support and commitment in Obinwannem and also demanded for truthfulness in all our doing.

Nwa-chineke Ugwu Okechukwu then made a closing remark and enjoined everyone to pay their monthly taxes as when due for us to meet up with some financial demands considering that we are still in the investment stage of the project and demanded that the PRO and the Provost should always make sure that everyone is carried along and encouraged us all to always be bold and truthful in all that is right.

He then committed everyone in the hands of Chukwu Okike Abiama and reassured everyone that our meeting time remains 1:30minutes and the delay in the closing time was due to the delays when some of us were joining the meeting. The closing prayers was taken by Nwada Chinedu Nnaji after giving some vote of thanks
