In his appreciation, Offor said he was overwhelmed by the show of love, friendship and partnership he had enjoyed as well as God’s grace, mercies, blessings and benevolence in his 65 years of existence.
He said the Sir Emeka Offor Foundation he founded and nurtured had grown to set paces for humanity in the area of charity.
“Our vision for education and educational development continues to receive strategic attention. Today, we are also distributing books and educational materials to over 200 Primary, Secondary and Tertiary Institutions in Nigeria,” he said.
Offor said he would continue to support ideas that would bring prosperity to the humanitarian space, including his Foundation and Rotary International while urging all to be Peace Ambassadors wherever they found themselves.
“Let me use this opportunity to appeal to my fellow Nigerians to show compassion to Widows and indeed the vulnerable and indigent in our society.
“You don’t need to have too much to be able to put smiles on the faces of your neighbours.
“Your love, encouragement, partnership and sacrifices have been my source of strength,” he said.
