A United Kingdom based Medical Professional and successful Business woman, Mrs Antonia Aduragbemi Obafunsho has urged her Diaspora Based Compatriots to stop blaming governments for the provision of all development facilities in Egbaland.
According to Mrs Antonia Aduragbemi Obafunsho, a retired Medical Administrator and Entrepreneur made the call during her courtesy call on the Alake and Paramount Ruler of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Gbadebo on 23 June, 2022 at the Ake Palace.
Mrs Aduragbemi Obafunsho noted that self-made individuals in the society should render assistance to the less privileged in the country, as well, contribute their quota in uplifting their respective hometowns.
Mrs Obafunsho disclosed that, she had been away for some time and she was planning to come back to Egbaland, adding that, part of her objectives was the establishment of a Non Governmental Organizations (NGO) which would be looking after the orphanage and hopeless people in our society.
She further told the Alake that the courtesy call was part of her one week-53rd birthday anniversary celebration to introduce her NGO to get people in Abeokuta.
In an interview with a Newsflagship Reporter, Mrs Antonia Aduragbemi Obafunsho said, things like that couldn’t be done without informing the number one, the Egba apex monarch.
She further disclosed that, they just launched the NGO that day and the objective was to support the helpless and give hope to people, that thought there was no hope.
She therefore advised prominent Egba sons and daughters to try to reach out to people that really needed their help as long as it was within their capacity and ability to do so.
She pointed out that things could not be overdone but the least, those that needed serious help could be touched first as this would make their world a better place and Egbaland, a nation to live in.
In his response, Oba Adedotun Gbadebo appreciated what the Egba Apex Monarch called, her enduring selfless service to her people in Egbaland.
Oba Gbadebo said that her plan to give back to her people was worth of emulation by other Egba Compatriots at home or abroad adding that self help was the best help.
The Alake prayed for longer and heathier life for Mrs Obafunsho and the enduring success of her project to bring succour to the needy and thereby grow the society.
The Aare Baaroyin of Egbaland, Chief Layi Labode, was present at the occasion.
