Ụfọdụ n'ime Ihe ndị ọzọ dị egwu omere[mèzi | mèzi mkpụrụ]

  1. NBIDO PMAN: Site n'echiche ya na nkwado di ya, o dekọtara ụbụrụ ahụ dịka ụbụrụ mgbe e guzobere otu mba a ghọtara nke ọma maka ndị na-egwu egwu na mba ahụ, bụ nke a na-akpọ Ịrụ Ọrụ Ndị Na-ahụ Maka Ndị Ọrụ Ngwá Ọrụ nke Nigeria (PMAN) na 1982. A na-ebute ya iji gboo ọdịmma na nchebe nke ndị egwu egwu Nigeria na ikike ha, mba na mba ụwa. Mgbe Union nọ na-aga ịla n'iyi, a dọrọ ya gaa n'isi ya iji mee ka nwa ya dị ndụ. Nke a mechara mee ka ọ bụrụ PMAN President maka okwu abụọ na-adịgide, ruo ugbu a, naanị otu nwanyị ka ọ ga-esi na-aga n'òtù azụmahịa na Nigeria.FORMATION OF PMAN: With her ideas and husband’s support, she recorded the feat as the brain behind the formation of the only recognized national (union) body for musicians in the country, aptly called Performing Musicians Employers Association of Nigeria (PMAN) in 1982. It is meant to cater for the welfare and protection of Nigerian musicians and their rights, nationally and internationally. When the Union was heading for extinction, she was dragged to head it so as to revive her baby. This culminated in her serving as PMAN President for two terms and remains, till date, the only female so far to have headed a trade union in Nigeria.
  2. FORMATION OF PMRS: She is a founding member of the Performing and Mechanical Rights Society (PMRS) of Nigeria and was the Chairman of the Board for two consecutive terms; becoming the second female to head the Society – after Chief (Mrs.) Keji Okunowo. The society is majorly concerned with the general responsibility of negotiating, collecting and distributing royalties on behalf of musical copyright owners who are mostly its members.
  3. ABROGATION OF OFFSHORE/ONSHORE OIL DICHOTOMY: It is on record that what the littoral State in Nigeria are enjoying today is as a result of the abrogation of the obnoxious onshore and offshore oil dichotomy which was made possible by God through Christy’s final push. She mounted campaign of persuasion that saw the regime of General Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida initiate and abrogate the dichotomy; thereby putting paid to the struggle that lasted decades.
  4. SUSTAINED EXISTENCE OF THE FRSC: It was through her interventional effort that the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) remains today as separate entity. When it was planned for scrapping or merging with the Nigeria Police Force, she brought pressure to bear on the Federal government and thus the FRSC was spared till today. This again was during the tenure of Military President Ibrahim Babangida.
  5. PRIVATE TELEPHONY: It is a fact that granting license for the private telephony started from the regime of late General Sani Abacha. Christy had to intervene by pushing forward the idea that the world is fast changing in telecommunication. The idea came to her when a private telephone company (EMIS) that had its equipment and staff ready approached her with their predicament as a result of license denial. She fought this and thus EMIS became the first privately licensed telecommunication company; others then followed with ease.
