Finance Executive – Chidera Samson:
What is the meaning of your Igbo name and what State are you from?
Chidera means; When God says Yes, no man says No! It is written. Na Igbo O DERA O DEGO! Ihe Chi dere o’dego ya, ihe o dere ga’eme! I am from Nsukka, Enugu state.
What motivated you to run to be part of the exec?
This is an interesting question because I have only been a member for a month before running for this position. What motivated me to be part of the execs group is the previous execs who dedicated their time, energy and effort to make umuigbo unite as one- I thought to myself if Jenn, Chinedu and his team can do this, then I can do it! I felt I could make a difference and was enthused about ICSN. I went to my first meeting in November 2015 and immediately I felt like I was part of the group already because I was shown a lot of love by the exec team and other team members.
What has been your favourite meeting, event or experience to date at ICSN and why?
My favourite meeting at ICSN was the November GHM because it was free lol and I was able to meet my fellow Igbo’s who can communicate in Igbo without biting their tongues.
