“Together, we all can make our society a better place if we join hands and collaborate to uplift the downtrodden around us.
“While the Government and Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) cannot do it all, we have a responsibility to contribute our quota to making Nigeria a better place for all”.
He urged Nigerians to participate in the fourth edition of the Touching Lives programme by nominating causes and persons who require help.
According to him, “The nomination process is simple. Once an individual or cause is nominated , our team will review and assess the situation and determine if a follow-up visit will be required

Ogunsanya added that Airtel Touching Lives is aimed at promoting the culture of giving amongst Nigerians.
