Reacting to a popular quote from Martin Luther King Jr “what are you doing for others“.
This quote is a direct reflection of a man Chief Maurice Emeka Akueme whose light shines upon thousands.
Chief Maurice Emeka Akueme a humanitarian and philanthropist has in recent time won the love of many through his programs.
If the founder of the Maurice Akueme Foundation hasn’t reached you directly that means he would have indirectly either through relationship or friendship.
But fact is that there’s someone you know who is a beneficiary of the popular Maurice Akueme Foundation.
Akueme is that brain behind the success reached by the foundation.
Akueme sees life as a give and take as represented in these quotes “in giving you are receiving”, “we grow by lifting others”, “givers never lack”, etcetera.
Chief Maurice through his foundation has touched many lives and put smiles on the faces of thousands.
Akueme’s initiatives towards humanity is next to non, initiatives which has caused a group to name him “silent achiever and humanitarian”, “Njikokamma”, some— “oji palliative eme ôgô”, others “Mr. Palliatives”, and many; “father to the fatherless”, “husband of the widow”, “new darling of Enugu Youths”, “oji alert agwô ôrîa”, and as many as they are.
Akueme has supported the Government of Enugu state under the ebullient leadership of Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi without seeking for favor.
