Pa. Nathaniel Omosehin’ s burial: Billionaire son, Bamidele Omosehin organizes novelty match, launches foundation
Hon. Bamidele Omosehin, the Chief Executive Officer NVX International Limited, has been described as a gentleman whose veins flow with milk of human kindness. He was equally praised and appreciated for his good gesture and the timely concept of launching the Bamidele Omosehin Foundation which motive is to provide basic assistance to the less privileged in the society. Giving this accolades was Hon. Shina Peller , Member House of Representatives from Oyo state. The young and enterprising politician who came all the way from Abuja to witness the event said he and Bamidele Omosehin have come a long way and he is not surprised as he is known to be a man who can’t feel comfortable while the larger majority are languishing in poverty.
Hon. Shina Peller while challenging people to borrow a leaf from the compassionate life style of Mr. Bamidele Omosehin opened the launching of the foundation with one million Naira. Friends of the Iju Odo born business tycoon also made substantial financial donation at the event.
While delivering his speech, the founder of BOF, Hon. Bamidele Omosehin said setting up the foundation was his little way of contributing to the growth of the society and putting smiles on the face of the needy. ” Growing up was not a bed of roses . Today, as I look back at to remember how the average kids like me from a modest family had to struggle to get the basic necessities of life at some point in our early years . I feel challenged . This has really shaped my orientation about the hardship people face daily around us. Eventually it has propelled me to set up the foundation to generally help the downtrodden , widows , orphans and less privileged,” Omosehin said.
He noted that the foundation is a non Government and non profit making one and it is poised to offer support to basically the need across Africa.
