Positing that you’re one of the most fun-seeking and loving person every young chap should cling to, your interest in the growth and development of youths make people wonder how you make out time for your numerous business Interests and tight schedules.
You’re passionate about a lot of things, sometimes outsiders question why you have to do so much but then all these sums up who you really are. No better way to describe your genuity and intentionality.
The journey of silently feeding families and caring for the needy in this period of economic somersault could have been made possible without you pushing the goal of sustaining the poor in their lack.
You have continued to make many to laugh, smile again, many survived, the hopeless become hopeful because you gave them reason to be.
Going memory lane! Memories of the poor women and school children who danced to the love they received from you your Foundation, laughter on the faces of those who couldn’t comprehend the fact that someone remembered them, the tears that flowed from the eyes of those who never expected the love extended, the songs of praise and thanksgiving to God from the poor widow.
Having given your time, energy and resources with enthusiasm to serve humanity, you’re a priceless and precious gift to your generation.
As you celebrate your birthday on Wednesday, April 26, may the Lord continue to reward you with greater success and enviable distinction in your future endeavours.
