U.S. Congressional Recognition for Chido Nwangwu on USAfrica’s 25 years of “service truly worthy of the respect”


@USAfricaLive  @Chido247

Washington DC: U.S. Congressional Recognition has been issued to the Founder of USAfrica multimedia networks Dr. Chido Nwangwu, in the brief but authoritative assessment of the impact of his works on the business, news, public policy, international security and cultural exchanges between Africans and Americans. It stated that for the past 25 years “Your service is truly worthy of the respect, admiration, and commendation of the United States Congress.” 

The Congressional Recognition pointed to the transformational leadership record of Dr. Nwangwu by noting that “We must remember that one determined person can make a significant difference”, as precisely articulated by Sheila Jackson Lee, member of Congress, representing the 18th district of Texas, who seats on the influential Committee on the Judiciary and the Committee on the Budget. She is also the Ranking Member: The Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, and Investigations; the Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and  Intelligence; and co-chair of Congressional caucus on Nigeria. 

The influential lawyer and Congresswoman who has attended several USAfrica fora and events added: “I take great pride in USAfrica on the occasion of their 25th Anniversary Award of the USAfrica International Heritage Champion.”

On what set the networks on its pedestal, Dr. Chido Nwangwu noted that “USAfrica is  respected for its acclaimed dedication to the business and interests of Africans and Americans, record of international community leadership and fluently mainstreaming contemporary African immigrant news and views in the melting-pot of American discourses. It’s not been easy; it has come with a lot sacrifices but I’m blessed by God’s grace and an extraordinary family, extended family, an outstanding team and initial backers.”

USAfrica, characterized by the CNN and The New York Times as the largest (and arguably, the most influential) African-owned, U.S-based multimedia networks, was founded since 1992 by Dr. Chido Nwangwu. He is author of the soon-to-be-released 2017 book, Mandela & Achebe: Leadership, Identity and Footprints of Greatness, and former adviser on Africa business to the ex-Mayor of Houston.

  4. Chidio is one nigerinist, he hates the name Biafra with passion. Awusa Fulani herdsmen killed and raped his people in Enugu,he never write about it.Ogbasadim.

    • What is your purpose in your vulgar, violent Lies against my work? Google my name and Biafra, you will get 11,000 items in point 0 70 seconds! Do you have no shame? You know the truth and Fact: in the past 30 years, I have written many analyses and interviewed the former president of Biafra 3 times but you rather chose to become a character assassin, a malicious social media tout by falsely claiming I hate to mention the name Biafra

    • I will be the last person to be against you because,am a Biafran. We are our brother’s keeper. You have to be visible in this struggle to shake off awusa Fulani from our paths.

      No Igbo man should sit on the fence while alaigbo is on fire. Great people makes a great place.I know you are a great man,so you can make a great thing.

      Social media ranting is not an excuse because it has is own pros and cons .

    • One thing that is lacking among our Ibo youths, is respect and am not surprised Ogu is counted as one of those unruly youths.Chibo has directly and indirectly contributed, immeasurably towards the Biafran struggle. Sad,you don’t know this.Do you expect him to join you and your likes in your shameful displays on the streets which has resulted in the maiming of some of our people by law enforcement agents? You need to google the name, CHIDO NWANGWU only then will you be properly guided.

    • Smart Iheoma,what is your surname. Posthumous child, you bearing your mother’s name. Aturu awusa,you must go back to father Alhaji because alaigbo will not contain us.

    • Ogu,evidently you have placed yourself where you rightly belong. Your words say it all,you are misinformed and not properly raised.No thanks to your parents who gave you a freelance upbringing. Street urchin that’s what you are.

    • Fuck you asshole,in Igboland you earn respect we don’t just give respect to an epileptic imbecile like you.You don’t control my stomach because he who controls your stomach, controls your mind.If I catch you again I will show you, your Mami pima.
