Sir Emeka Okwuosa has said that sustainable collaboration and partnership are essential in addressing the challenges facing Nigeria and Nigerians.
The philanthropist and Chairman of the Sir Emeka Okwuosa Foundation (SEOF) expressed this in Lagos during the foundation’s flagship Gala Night.
The crux of the event, Okwuosa noted, was to celebrate the impact and accomplishments of the foundation across Nigeria through their work in healthcare, education and socio-economic empowerment programmes.
Okwuosa lamented that an estimated 20 million Nigerian children, aged 6 to 18, are currently without access to education. He expressed sadness over the high rate of unemployment that is pushing youth into more vulnerable positions where survival becomes a daily struggle.
“Witnessing my fellow Nigerians endure such hardships without attempting to alleviate their suffering is something I find impossible,” he said.
