The Chairman of the occasion, HON. Kehinde Odeneye, gave a heartwarming speech, he stressed the need to help one another, and that being a rich person doesn’t equate millions in the account or several houses and cars, but the need to spot a loophole around us and cover it up, help the people who can’t help themselves. He pleged to partner with the ELIJAH THOMSON CARING HEART FOUNDATION to give scholarship to two children from the foundation.
He also encouraged youths to actively participate in politics, identify with a political party, register as a candidate, contest, go out to vote for the leader they want. He stressed that the #ENDSARS protests opened eyes and opportunities for the youth, it showed that there is strength in unity, it’s not enough to #sorosoke but to get involved.
Excerpt from the chairman’s speech:
“Firstly, I greet everyone here today, I also congratulate Mr Elijah Thomson on today’s launching. I extend my greetings to the Royal Father’s on the high table for their support. We all have to celebrate with the celebrant in order to be calebrated too. It is not by the number of persons in attendance,but, by what can be achieved with few persons.
” Today,I am here to be a part of the kind-hearted persons who will assist the less privileged in our society. True wealth is when you love the people around you and you always seek development for your home town, state and country at large, someone who uses his personal assests and resources to satisfy bothers, this is truly what Elijah Thomson stands for.
“When there is no growth in the community, there is no way anyone will think of developing the community or to assist the less privileged.
“Elijah Thomson through his foundation has brought growth and development to his community as well as other States, he indeed lives and cares for his people. When I asked him what he wants to do when he just returned from America, he replied that it’s not time for politics yet, but time to give, help the less privileged with some part of what God has blessed him with. I will partner with the ELIJAH THOMSON FOUNDATION and give scholarship to two school children”.
