The next day, the group visited the female section of Kirikiri Maximum Prison and equally donated food and non-edible items to them. Prayer and counselling sessions were also offered.

“Future Leadership Conference has had 5 editions. This year we decided to do a project that could directly impact on humanity and stimulate conversation on the need to be our brother’s and sister’s keeper.
“We felt fulfilled being an avenue of making life meaningful to our brothers and sisters at Makoko and Kirikiri Prison. The joy and excitements among the people at receiving our items almost moved us to tears. We hope to be doing this frequently with support from willing partners like you.
“The Spirit of Christmas, an annual charity outreach to prisons stated for December 25th and 26th is around the corner. It is a window of opportunity for citizens to show love to less privileged Nigerians,” he admonished.
