Since then the business has expanded into other sphere of business to include Importation, Merchandize and General contracts. He has also transcended internationally to Other Countries such as South Africa where his companies are incorporated in Johannesburg- the economic capital of South Africa .

As a reformer, he has contributed towards Umueri Liberation Struggle and emancipation from den of robbery menace which bedeviled the town following the post crisis era. He championed a cause that only very few would be brave enough to embark on. In the height of the regime of terror in Umueri following the crisis that engulfled the ancient town of Eri, during the post Invasion era, he was able to embark on a struggle to redeem the town from Robbery King Pins who terrorize the town that many have unwillingly becomes exiles against their wish. In conjunction with Umueri General Assembly (UGA) he formed a Security Outfit with dedicated Umueri Youths whose aim was to rid Umueri off such bad and evil minded people.
