Otedola endorses Violence Free World Initiative

Forte Oil Chairman, Mr Femi Otedola has joined the select group of prominent Nigerians who are endorsing the idea and ideals of the Cally Ikpe’s Violence World  (VFW) Initiative.

Mr. Otedola who hosted the  the VFW team in his Victoria Island Office, Lagos observed that the programme was noble and most relevant at this time of Nigeria’s history. Violence, he reckoned, is no respecter of persons or creed, stressing that no one is insulated from it. To him, the most practicable solution to the growing incidents of violence is to shun acts that will lead to it.

The highpoint of the interface was an endorsement of the project by Otedola. ‘Wealth means nothing without security’ In his endorsement message, he said:”Wealth means nothing if your security is not assured, and true security and prosperity will remain an illusion if hatred and racial biases dominate our minds. Please, let us learn to be more accommodating of each other. Nothing surpasses love. I am Femi Otedola. I believe in the campaign for a violence-free world.”

On his part, Mr. Cally Ikpe expressed gratitude to Otedola for finding time from his tight schedule to receive the team. He particularly commended the amiable billionaire of global repute for endorsing the Violence-Free World campaign. He declared that the advocacy will find expression across the length and breadth of the country and even beyond.

He said: “We intend to take this to every quarter just as I advise everyone to show love and tolerance in their words and their works. The Violence-Free World Project is presently being driven by the Ooni of Ife’s House of Oduduwa Foundation and the Cally Ikpe-led Youth Culture & Human Dignity Initiative.” Recall that the Ooni had in September last year hosted the flag-off of the program at his palace in Ile Ife, Osun State, where a couple of individuals were honoured as peace ambassadors, notably, Tuface Idibia, Gbenga Adeyinka and Cally Ikpe.
