As Vice president Yemi Osinbajo marks his 65th birthday, a support advocate group and movement for Osinbajo 2023 presidential ambition has donated various food items and consumables to motherless home in Abuja.
The group on Tuesday visited the Mother Theresa Babies Home in Gwarimpa Abuja with gift items to meet some of the needs of the home.
Among the items donated to the home were bags of rice, cartons of indomie noodles, Cartons of children diapers, ladies sanitary pads and cartons of groundnut oil.
The group, Osinbajo Support Movement (OSM), described itself as the most vocal and well structured groups advocating for the Vice President to throw his hat into the ring and contest for the coveted seat of the President come 2023.
Speaking at the event, the convener of OSM, Mr Olawale Badmus thanked the home for opening their doors to receive the team and items.
He said OSM was propelled to embark on the gesture because of the need to make the children in the home comfortable to ensure that the vacuum created by their situation does not distort their growth and bond with the society.
Olawale further stated that the group was equally propelled by the uncommon and selfless gesture of the Vice President who in 2019, used the occasion of his birthday to raise funds that were devoted to building schools and homes for orphans and displaced children in Borno state who were victims of insurgency.
He noted that “the society at every level, devoid of class and status must stand up for one another and make life meaningful for everyone”.
In her response, the supervisor of the home, Madam Martha thanked the OSM for the heart touching gesture and prayed God to replenish the purse of the donors.
The visit was concluded on an emotional note as the children prayed for the OSM and for Nigeria.
