The Enugu State Union in South Africa says it is planning to buy a house in that country for commercial use and image branding of the state.
The President of the union, Mr Mike Ugwu, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Johannesburg, South Africa, on Sunday that the group would acquire the property in an upscale location and it would be named Enugu House.
“We want to acquire it or get a land and erect it the way we want. If we buy a house, we will renovate it the way we want.
“Our aim is to use the house for image branding of Enugu State in South Africa. It is not also going to be an ordinary house, it will generate funds for the union.
“One day, we will think of home and this project will make members have something memorable to reminiscence on.
“Members have been told to adopt a think-home philosophy,” he said.
Ugwu said while the union could not raise enough funds at its 20th anniversary last year, efforts were on to begin the project.
“The union is already engaging some property firms in South Africa on the choice of house to buy.
“The house will be renovated and partitions created for business centres while a hall for events and offices for business outfits would be let out, ” he said.
