We have great entrepreneurs, educationists, engineers, artisans among others that are doing very well in their various spheres of life so, these people too needs to give back to the society. You may not really have the resources but you can contribute your ideas. There is something everybody can contribute to the development of the society we all find ourselves.

“We have several indigenes and non indigenes of Lokoja that have one way or another contributed to our society. Some of them employed our youths in their companies. Youths that would have probably taken to social vices but since they’ve been positively engaged, they don’t have time for such again. This is what we are talking about, rendering service to humanity. We are going to Award 10 of such persons for now, as a sign to appreciate them for their efforts and as well encourage them to do more”
