An All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain and President of the Ugwumba Leadership Centre for Africa, Uche Nwosu, has been appointed Global Indian Ambassador for Economic Diplomacy.

In a letter signed by Rajan Nazran, Chief Explorer, Global Indian Series, the recipient is expected to work for the expansion of the platform for the benefit of “the people of Nigeria and greater Africa.”
PlatinumPost reports that Nwosu, who is the son-in-law of Senator Rochas Okorocha, was recently arrested from a church by policemen that stormed the worship centre in a gestapo manner.
The arrest which generated controversies and condemnations, was said to have been connected with insecurity in Imo State, he was later released.
Nwosu’s new appointment was in recognition of his contributions to the economic development policies of the Nigerian Government through the empowerment of women and youths.
By this appointment, Nwosu has joined an exclusive community of global leaders, including former Heads of State, Ministers, Members of the House of Lords, Members of Royal Families, internationally acclaimed Human Rights activists, leading academics and high impact performers in over 23 countries who are driving change across the globe.
Responding to this international recognition, Mr. Nwosu said: “I did not know that our little contributions in creating jobs for unemployed youths in Nigeria through the Leadership Center is being recognized around the world. My appointment as their Ambassador for Economic Diplomacy will challenge me and my team to do more for our country and continent, Africa. I am happy that I will be joining other world leaders in driving global conversations and actions for a better world. I am really grateful.”
