“I still insist that giving is not because we have, it’s because we are courageous enough to be selfless. I saw how the entrepreneurial programme with Otunba Dele Momodu revealed many things that Nigerian youths are involved in and the efforts they are making and I am glad
to let you know that more lives will be touched and changed for good.”
