Hon. Ikechukwu Ezeugwu....Living For Humanity By Dr. Jude Ukwueze


Before his foray into the murky water of Nigerian politics in 2011, Hon. Ikechukwu Meletus Ezeugwu, Chief Executive Officer( CEO) Mezal Nig  Ltd,  and Principal Partner, Mezal Consult  Lagos, was an astute businessman and financial expert, who diligently worked his way up, made his mark in Finance  business and became a household name in service to humanity especially in his community and its environs. 

   It was a result of his exceptional philanthropy and selfless service to humanity that the people of his Constituency, Udenu , of Enugu State beckoned on him to make himself and his wealth of immeasurable experience and goodness available in the political representation of the Constituency at the state Assembly. 

   In compliance with the plea and request by his people, Ezeugwu joined politics in 2011 and was elected member representing Udenu State Constituency in  Enugu House of Assembly. 

    Following his outstanding performance, he was reelected in 2015 and was made the Leader of Enugu State House of Assembly. He was also reelected again in 2019 and continued with his position as the Leader of House. 

   While in the House, he presented several bills that were passed into law and worked excellently as the link between the executive and legislature in the state that   brought about harmonious and cordial relationships between the two arms of the government in the state.

    Ezeugwu served as Chairman of the Southeast Legislative And Governance Reform Committee, (a body that was made up of the Majority Leaders and Clerks of the Houses  of Assembly 

of the Southeast)

  The Committee among other things made a landmark 

achievement of producing the first ever uniform House 

Standing Order being presently used in the five State 

Houses of Assembly of the Southeast.
