Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State has advised against placing advertisements across the various media platforms to celebrate his 58th birthday on July 1st this year, urging friends and well-wishers, who may want to do so to donate the expenses to WeCare Trust.
Governor Obaseki has been worried and taking steps to end the societal stigma of helpless children living of the streets and witnessing the worst parts of life before they have even had a chance to live. He will not rest until he has addressed this satisfactorily.
The Governor’s Chief Press Secretary also stressed that it may dishearten the governor to see celebration advertisements instead of notifications that funds had been donated to the charity organisation, calling on well-meaning Nigerians, who would not have been able to afford advertisements, to also donate to charity foundations in the state.
WeCare Trust is a charity foundation owned by Iara Oshiomhole, wife of Former Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, adding that it is the same foundation for which Governor Obaseki ran the 10km Okpekpe Road Race.
