Following the retirement of two Board members of the Umuchinemere Pro-credit Micro finance Bank (UPMFB) from the Board earlier in the year, Msgr Prof Obiora Ike and Dame Ngozi Agu respectively, two new persons were approved by the bank's shareholders at the bank's Annual General Meeting of July 29, 2016 to replace the retired Directors. The two new Directors are Rev. Fr. Dr. Anieke Chinedu Odinkemelu and Lady Eunice Chinyere Oguanya.
Msgr Ike who until his retirement from the Board was its Chairman and Director of a sister organization to UPMFB, Catholic Institute for Development, Justice and Peace (CIDJAP) Enugu, retired from the Board following his appointment to head a Geneva based international body, Global Ethics Network, while Dame Agu was a former President of the Catholic Women Organisation (CWO) of the Enugu diocese.
Fr Anieke who took over from Msgr Ike as the new Director of CIDJAP replaced Msgr Ike on the Board of the bank as a Director while Lady Oguanya who is Dame Ngozi Agu's successor as the President of the Enugu diocese's CWO replaced the former CWO President on the bank's Board as a Director, by virtue of her (Oguanya's) current position as the incumbent President of the diocese's CWO. Msgr Ike told the bank's AGM that it was statutory that whoever was the incumbent President of Enugu diocese's CWO represents the body on the Board of UPMFB.
The 48-year old Fr Anieke by the time of his appointment into the Board of UPMFB, having been born precisely on May 6, 1968 at Awha Ndiagu in the Ezeagu local government area of Enugu State, was ordained a priest of the Roman Catholic Church on August 17, 1996.
Apart from Philosophy and Theology which he read prior to his priesthood, Fr Anieke studied Canon Law in his Masters' and Doctorate degrees at the Pontifical Urban University Rome and did Certificate courses in German Language, Canonical Jurisprudence in the United Kingdom, and Bayern Culture and Catholicism in Germany. His CV is on our website.
Lady Oguanya, born on March 3, 1974, has two Bachelor's degrees in Mass Communication and Education Administration, Supervision and English respectively, as well as a Master's degree in Public Relations.
Lady Oguanya, who hails from Ezeagu local government area of Enugu State but formerly from Anambra State by birth, is a private business woman and has held several big responsibilities at parish, diocesan and national levels of the Church, as well as in her local community. Details of her CV are also on our website.
