“Happy Birthday To An Icon Who Has Risen by Lifting Others”

Chief Charles Ndubuisi Mba, a philanthropist whose passion for human development is immeasurable, recently celebrated his birthday where he expressed his joy of living a fulfilled life. 

The great icon who could not hide his excitement revealed how rising by lifting others gave him joy and how impacting other people positively had made him an achiever. 

Many will spend their lifetime trying to figure out rules to living, however, Dr Charles Mba not only figured them out but has been living them for almost two decades now.

“The greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he acquires but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively. 

“So, achievements generally could not necessarily be achievements in terms of material things. There is a way I look at achievement. 

“How many people have you impacted in life? How have you changed situations around you? These are areas where one needs to perform well before he is called an achiever. 

“We have been able to give scholarships to different people, especially indigent people. We have also been able to train people who are graduates” Mba said.

He demonstrates the exact meaning of living by using his talent to serve the world and leaving a lasting impression while serving and mainly a positive impact on the causes that matter to the powerful.

It was gathered that Chief Mba through his pet project, Charley Mba Foundation a charity organization established purposely to give scholarship to indigent students at Udenu & Nsukka at large from primary to university level has largely done such.

“I feel fulfilled. I am so grateful to God for keeping me alive till 50. I have lost some friends. Even at the age of 40, some died. I have lost close friends who didn’t get to 50 but for me, the most precious thing God has done for me is keeping me alive and healthy to attain 50 years. 

“I know he will continue to keep me until I am 100 years old. I have achieved a lot. I have done so well in my area of discipline and other areas. God has been so kind to me and things have been working so perfectly for me”

“Excellence, a rare quality possessed by a few in the society, an ideal that stands out the few, making them exemplary and quintessential in all facts.” he added.
