Chief Ndidi Aminu being conferred with the title of Uvwiefome.
Story by Dili Utomi.
The African tradition recognises honesty, hard work and generousity as part of the ingredients that make for a better individual and for a collectively better society as well and it is in this light that the Uvwie kingdom of Delta State decided to honour one of its adopted sons with a chieftaincy title.

The man is no other than Ndidi Joel Aminu, whose ancestry is in Ihogbe quarters of Agbor-Obi in Ika South local government area of Delta State. He was born on the 17th of July 1970 into the family of Mr. Stephen Aminu, but moved into the Uvwie kingdom as a young boy after finishing from the Gbenoba Grammar school and made Uvwie kingdom his adopted home and place of abode. He got a job with Chevron Nigeria Limited, an oil and gas production company after spending some years as a spare parts salesman, but in-between also obtained his bachelor of science degree in Political Science from the Delta State University Abraka and this is where he worked for over twenty years until he resigned about two years ago a fulfilled man. He then become a distributor for the Dangote brands of products and that is what he is presently doing as a full time businessman. Chief Aminu is an elder at his church and also an active member of different social clubs.
