“He is a philanthropist. He is interested in ensuring peace and tranquility in Nigeria, and has continued to work towards that goal”.
Uyi noted that Allen Onyema organised the first Nigeria Forever Project in 2005, with the support of the Federal Government, explaining that the project was done to promote broad nationalism as against ethnic nationalism.
