The speaker of Imo State House of Assembly Rt. Hon. Benjamin Uwajumogu has received an award for excellence and philanthropy. The award was given to him by the National Commission for Museums and Monument in association with Alliance Francaise, Boom Votex and Next 2 None (NGO) to mark the International Children's Day in a 4-day Children's Art Festival Organized at the Rosy Art Theatre Owerri – Imo State on the 23rd of June 2011.

Speaking at the occasion after receiving the award, Rt. Hon. Uwajumogu thanked the Organizers of the event particularly the guest speaker Mrs. Chioba Francisca Uboh and Mr. Obii Ekeocha, the initiator of the ceremony for their ingenuity in facilitating the ceremony. Speaker Uwajumogu advised them to continue to work together for the growth of our children, our cultural heritage in the state and Nigeria at large. He maintained that our children has a right to be  loved, a right to be protected, a right to sound and qualitative education, a right to be heard and a right to live. The ebullient and vibrant legislator therefore urged and enjoined all and sundry to carry out this crusade of taking care of our children to various homes, communities and local governments. He insisted that these crusades are geared towards the well-being of our children who majority of them are still in child labour, abject poverty, sexual abuse, slavery and other unimaginable conditions in many parts of the world.
