In these trying times of hate speeches and etnic agitations, Wife of the Acting President, Mrs. Dolapo Osinbajo, submits that what Nigerians need more than anything else is love, one for another
She spoke in Owerri, Imo State at the official commissioning of a Non-Governmental Organization, ELFREEDA FOUNDATION owned by Mrs. Uloma Nwosu, daughter of the Imo State Governor.
Her words: “Our nation needs love now more than anything else. I encourage the people of Imo to show example of this love which I see in them to the rest of the country. This is not my first time in Imo State and each time I come I see peace everywhere. This state is like a house full of many people and I say to this house, peace be upon it.
“Love never fails, I have a request that is deeply rooted in the bible, love your neighbour as you love yourself. It is a selfish request because it entails loving everybody irrespective of religion or tribe. And this is what Nigerians should be doing now”.
She congratulated EL-Freeda Foundation adding: “It is a great joy to be in this beautiful hall and all the great talents that are here. I could only imagine that El-Freeda Foundation was a dream, but now, it has become a reality. The hand of the Lord is very strong to make dreams come true”.
“I am not surprised what I see today about El-Freeda Foundation and all I can whisper is I’m so proud of you my junior Sister and daughter, Uloma”.
Governor Rochas Okorocha, at the event, said the nation was on the march towards achieving greatness, with all the challenges confronting her.
He described the wife of the Acting President, Mrs. Osibanjo as a mother her love knows no bound irrespective of Class, religion or tribe.
He continued “Just recently, the First Ladies of Nigeria were gathered in Imo State including the First lady of Nigeria, Hajia Aisha Buhari to attend my wife’s August Meeting. Today again, the wife of the Acting President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Mrs. Dolapo Osibanjo is here, we are really grateful”.
He added “Over the years of my struggles in life, I have not so much been at home or stayed with my children for long, but we have always been there to impart the necessary discipline in our children. Today, Uloma, you have made us proud”.
In her speech, the Founder/Chief Executive Officer of ELFREEDA FOUNDATION, Mrs. Uloma Nwosu said the foundation is to help the less-privileged, stating that the Foundation is not the dramatization of wealth but the dramatization of Concern for the widows, orphans, disabled and others in the Society.
She thanked Mrs. Osibanjo for making her so proud.
Governor’s wife Nneoma and the husband of the owner of the Foundation and Chief of Staff Government House, Chief Uche Nwosu expressed gratitude to the Acting President’s wife for coming to perform the opening Ceremony.
