CEIBS Donates Relief Materials To Charity Organisations

The China Europe International Business School (CEIBS) Alumni, Nigeria Chapter has donated relief materials to three humanitarian organizations operating in Lagos.

The donations, which include personal care, clothing and food items, were delivered to Tower of Refuge Motherless/Orphanage Home, Surulere; Nigerian Red Cross Society Motherless and Abandoned Babies Home, Yaba and Old People’s Home, Yaba by a team led by its President, Mr. Sunday Agboola.

Besides the gifts, the visiting team also spent some time with the orphans and the elderly people as well as the workers, saying it was a demonstration of the essence of Christmas.

Speaking at the donation, Mr. Agboola said the activity was motivated by the organisation’s desire to affect the lives of the least remembered members of the society and give them sense of belonging.

He said: “A number of people often forget those who should have been prioritized during celebration and any other time. No child chooses to be an orphan but the society makes them so. Orphans are products of the social upheavals. They need to be cared for. This is what informed our visit and donation.

“We also take time to visit the elderly people to remind the rest of us that we will be in their condition one day. What should we do if we truly believe that we will be in the state they are now? We should care for them; we should visit and play with them.”

Agboola said the gesture would be sustained as part of the robust charity programme designed by CEIBS Alumni, Nigeria Chapter. He had earlier said that the organization would be more visible in charity in the coming year.

How Nigeria Can Attain Sustainable and Inclusive Growth – Dangote

Billionaire businessman Aliko Dangote has identified what Nigeria needs to drive sustainable and inclusive growth.

Dangote, who is Africa’s richest man, said this via a poat on his twitter handle on Friday.

He said, “Nigeria has one of the largest domestic markets with a population of over 200 million people.

“We need to drive sustainable and inclusive growth through industrialization, economic diversification and import substitution, creating jobs and driving economic prosperity.”

Dangote had on Wednesday aired his views about the Nigerian economy at a Roundtable session with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor, Mr. Godwin Emefiele, with the theme “Going for Growth 2.0.”

He said when he read that the Nigerian Customs collected N1.35trn import duties last year, it means the economy isn’t working.

“If the economy is working, the Customs shouldn’t collect that much money, it is the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) that should,” he said.
