The PDP Youth Renaissance (PYR) has advised Nigerian politicians to emulate the act of philanthropy, by contributing their quota to socio-economic development of the society.
They spoke at a PDP youths conference held in Agbor, Delta State.
The youths commended Delta State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, Chief Sunny Onuesoke for creating and designing programmes to facilitate sustainable socio-economic development of communities through public-private partnership.
President of PYR, Comrade Joshua Okoh, commended the the Onuesoke Foundation which advocates a sustainable environment promoting social and economic development in the society, adding that the philosophy of the Foundation is built upon the activism, passion and approach Onuesoke has adopted over the years in his environmental campaign.
He said: “A cursory look at Onuesoke achievements revealed that through Onuesoke Foundation, he had provided at least two pairs of uniforms to school pupils of 10 rural schools in Delta State, provided Egburie Primary School located at Ozoro with pipe borne water, built a garden in the premises of Delta Broadcasting Service and Nana Model Girls College, Warri and in the same year he provided teaching aids materials to Emadadja Secondary School.”
Consequently, Okoh urged other politicians to emulate Onuesoke by providing to the society, saying it would go a long way in assisting the government in developmental programmes.
