Houston Mayor Honours Nigerian Businesswoman, Ifeoma Okengwu

Have you wondered why the name, Ifeoma Okengwu keeps popping up in public discourse among other Nigerians in Houston, Texas? It is because she has put smiles on the faces of many around her.

The beautiful woman is often spoken about because of her uncommon philanthropic gestures, a situation that has endeared her to a lot of Nigerians in the Diaspora. The real estate guru is loved, especially by the less privileged and the elderly who are the major beneficiaries of her philanthropic gestures.

Society Watch gathered that following her unwavering commitment to making a positive impact in the community, the Mayor of the City of Houston, Sylvester Turner, last month honoured the businesswoman by declaring May 2, 2023, as ‘Ms. Ifeoma Okengwu Day’ in Houston. This we gathered is a special way of honouring anyone that has had commendable humanitarian gestures.

As revealed, the Mayor in a statement, urged all citizens to join in honouring and thanking Ms. Okengwu for her dedication and service to the community.

The declaration issued by the Mayor described Okengwu as a remarkable businesswoman and entrepreneur who has made significant contributions to the community whose property company has served as inspiration for those in the community to realise that they can achieve their dreams and who has truly made a difference in the lives of many.  It was also disclosed that her property company has been instrumental in the development of affordable housing for low-income families, in addition to the revitalisation of distressed neighbourhoods that improve the quality of life for all.

 The city of Houston further commended her for her unwavering commitment to making a positive impact in the community. She is an inspiration to everyone she encounters and a testament to what can be achieved through hard work, dedication, and a genuine desire to help others.
