A social-cultural group focused on grassroots development through the advancement of peace and national development, Grassroots Development, and Peace Initiative has described Dr. Chima Anyaso as a man that personifies hard work, philanthropy, and unalloyed commitment to service of the nation and an epitome of good and noble cause in promotion of the true Nigerian spirit.

In the statement, the group notes that “one of the major contributory factors to our underdevelopment as a nation has been lack of visionary and purposeful individuals, such individuals that dream and live their dream, one that stimulates ideas and envisions the future” saying that Anyaso represents the true virtues of visionary leadership.
It described Anyaso as a visionary Nigerian with great foresight and passion for helping the needy in society just as demonstrated through his many community impact projects.

Stating further, the group noted that Anyaso is an enterprising and successful businessman who has endeared himself to the large society noting further that “in his avowed commitment and determination to advance the course of democracy and broaden the frontiers of community-based development initiatives has made a foray into the murky waters of Nigerian politics and despite initial setbacks has continued to pursue the course of peace and development through his foundation and has remained a beacon of hope for the vast majority of citizens

“It is therefore with privilege and honor that the Grassroots Development Initiatives confers the visionary and exemplary inspirational leadership award on Dr. Chimaobi Desmond Anyaso, for his outstanding performances, strong commitment to the growth of democracy and his immense and immense contributions to human capacity building” the statement reads.

Anyaso, while receiving the award, thanked the group while pledging to commit more resources and time to do greater work on the promotion of development and democracy, especially at the grassroots.

Anyaso has won several international awards for his charitable engagements including the Forbes-Rated Africa Achievers award presented at the UK Parliament being one of such numerous awards and recognitions.
