The Banquet hall of Watbridge Hotel was the venue, Hon Essien Ndueso was the grand Celebrant, Essien clocked 40 and we his friends and associates rolled drums in his honor thanking GOD for HIS grace on him and his family.
The Mc of the occasion was Mr Sirjames Essien, Mr Sirjames called on an acapella singing group to perform, a young girl of about 12 stood out from the group singing, she sang so well that the audience moved, through her talented rendition she brought joy and smiles to the celebrant and his beautiful wife.
Few minutes later, the Mc requested the young girl be brought back on stage, Mr Sirjames said that an Organization known as Ini Ememobong Foundation Mandated him to announced a Scholarship fund worth over a Million Naira to see the young girl through her primary and secondary education, the
admosphere in the hall changed, reactions and questions began to fly.
The woman sitted close to my table stretched across in whisper “Mr Eskor, What is this man’s salary”?, I answered “Madam, I don’t know”, She continued, “This man is so generous, his foundation has done so much in terms of students scholarship in the last few months”, I replyed “Madam, it is not about the salary or the income, it is about the heart”.
I first heard about The Ini Ememobong foundation few years ago when they built and donated houses to the less privileged people in Ibiono Ibom, few months later I saw the news and pictures on social media of them paying bills in hospitals across the State for stranded and sick people.
I don’t have details of what they have done so far to the numerous Akwa Ibom people that their golden hands has reached out to, I don’t know what they are about doing next, I am not send by them to write this, they don’t need to, I am just one of those who appreciate good things.
We all saw their inversion of campuses across the State and the effect they had on the students, their scholarship fund has brought joy to so many Akwa Ibom students and their families, their hospital bills paying activity has saved so many lives in Akwa Ibom State.
It is not about the income and position, it is about having a good heart,
Barrister Ini Ememobong is currently the publicity secretary of the People’s Democratic Party in Akwa Ibom State, he is married to a Lawyer like him, they don’t have much in terms of income but they have golden hearts.
I humbly join my voice with all those who appreciate good things to pray GOD Almighty to continuously bless The Ini Ememobong Foundation,
May they never lack and may their Favour be increased, as they stand for people who are in need may GOD Almighty stand for them when they need HIS help, May The Word and The Will of GOD in their life be fulfilled in JESUS Name AMEN
