In commemoration of his 70th birthday, the APC Professionals Council says it would launch a foundation in honour of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Sen. George Akume.
The council’s Director General, Amb. Seyi Bamigbade who announced this on Thursday in Lagos said the foundation will focus in promoting the ideals which the Benue former governor has consistently stood for over the decades.
According to Bamigbade, the foundation will be officially unveiled in Lagos on January 1, 2024.
He said it would advance the philanthropy and humanitarian campaign for which the SGF stands out, adding that it would empower youths with business grants, support widows and the less privileged, offer scholarships as well as provide educational materials to communities in Benue and the North Central in general.
He announced Prince Ademola Adetokunbo Ade- Jonh as the pioneer chairman board of trustees of the foundation.
Amb. Bamigbade urged philanthropic Nigerians and donor agencies to collaborate with the council as it seeks to improve the lives of communities in line with the Renewed Hope agenda of the current administration.
