He commended the founder for what he has been doing by trying to assist the less privileged persons, especially widows and youths, by empowering them through skills acquisition and start – up funds for setting up their businesses.
“ I must commend Mr. Asilonu for what he has been doing with this foundation in the last two years. He is not the richest person in this community, but, he has been using his personal wealth to spread joy and happiness across the length and breath of the state and beyond.
Like most young men of his age, he could have decided to enjoy his wealth in Canada where he is based, rather, he has decided to be his brothers keeper by assisting the less privileged members of his community and he should be commended for that.”
