Senator Godwill Akpabio, the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, has urged business leaders and politicians to follow in the footsteps of Nigerian singer Davido, who recently donated N250 million to orphanages in the country.
On Wednesday, Akpabio revealed that he recently hosted the artist and praised him for his charitable works.
To commemorate his birthday, Davido stated on Saturday that the total N200,000,000 raised from his fans, plus an additional N50,000,000 from his own wallet, will be donated to orphanage homes.
Sharing a picture of himself and Davido via his verified Facebook page, the minister said,
“I recently played host to our music icon and philanthropist, David Adedeji Adeleke aka Davido.
“His attitude towards the less privileged in society made me call on other Nigerians in politics, business and entertainment sectors to emulate him.
“I commend him on the N250 million humanitarian donations to the less privileged in the society and for joining other like minds in the society to touch and positively affect the lives of the less privileged in our society.
“I wish him a happy birthday and long life to do more for humanity.”
