Her Excellency’s Profile

her excellency

Her Excellency, Chief (Mrs.) Mercy Odochi Orji, is the 7th occupier of the office of the wife of the Governor of Abia State and 3rd as wife of an Executive Governor.

She is often referred to as a great woman evangelist, an Amazing Amazon, Winnie Mandela of Nigerian politics, Deborah of the 21st century and a humanitarian genius of an inestimable value. Nature once in a while gives birth to a woman with multiple gifts of intelligence, creativity, industriousness, transparency and sincerity of purpose, to a given people. Abia is indeed blessed to have such an Amazon as the wife of her Executive Governor.

Her Excellency, Chief (Mrs.) Mercy Odochi Orji, was born on May 22, 1959 to a modest and God fearing family.

Dedicated to helping the less privileged in Abia State, awareness campaign on HIV/AIDS,cancer and so many more. She is also championing an NGO known as the Family Empowerment Programme (FEP), a channel for implementing her social and humanitarian programmes.

It was founded as a response to the widespread social disadvantages in our society, which have, over time, impacted negatively on family values, thereby undermining the role of the family unit in the development process. The idea is therefore to provide a platform for redirecting the focus of development efforts on the family as a strategy for achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
