About a week ago, it was reported that popular Nigerian comedian, Julius Agwu, made donations of live turkeys to some residents of the United States of America.
This was highly criticised by some Nigerians, who believed the comedian did not do the right thing. His critics claimed he should have made such donations to those at the IDP Camps in Nigeria.
The entertainer had earlier shared photos via Instagram of him giving out turkeys to families in Riverdale, Atlanta under the aegis of his Julius Agwu Foundation.
According to NET, the comedian’s publicist said the act was in line with the philosophy of serving God and humanity.
He said: “This gesture is in line with the vision and mission of Julius Agwu Foundation Inc worldwide with our motto being For God & Humanity.
“We chose to give back to a community that has been very supportive of our [Nigerian] community and businesses in the United States. This community is a home to probably the highest concentration of people of Nigerian descent in the State of Georgia, and it may also interest you to know that we have the only officially recognised Yoruba traditional ruler in the US, HRM Oba Shola Akinrimsi, the Oriade of Georgia with staff of office from the Mayor of Riverdale, resides in the City of Riverdale. The Oba was one of the dignitaries that attended the thanksgiving give-away,” he ended.
Julius Agwu precisely made the gesture on November 18 to some uniform men and women who, he says, keep the neighbourhood of Riverdale, Atlanta safe during the holiday season.
Speaking on behalf of the comedian, a representative, Bishop Adejugbe, said that there is no problem with the comedian’s gesture so far as his main aim is to care for humanity.
Bishop Adejugbe told NET that, “This gesture is in line with the vision and mission of Julius Agwu Foundation Inc worldwide with our motto being For God & Humanity. We chose to give back to a community that has been very supportive of our [Nigerian] community and businesses in the United States.” He concluded.
