and harmony,” he said.

ethnic barriers that threatened their unity, in order to fully utilise their
collective potential for the greater benefit of society.
He advised the youths on the importance of
keeping a good connection with their Creator and maintain a good sense of
decency in their lives.

global counterparts in the search for genuine global peace and an end to
violence, terrorism and wars, for the good of humanity.

the NAOS for considering him worthy of the awards, said the Yoruba race should
consider themselves lucky for their ancestry spread in all continents of the
world.

capacities and a compassionate humanitarian.
