In his spare time and when he is not with his family, SIJ is an avid philanthropist with a penchant for giving, as demonstrated through his non-governmental organization, SIJ Foundation.
He said; “The issue of economic anomalies in Nigeria and Africa at large continues to gain unresolved status owing to the fact that resources that could correct these errors are not readily available and where available, not equally distributed. The above has denied thousands of Nigerians to necessities of life like food, clothing, shelter, education and other important facilities.”
SIJ Foundation is a philanthropic organisation whose vision is to build and sustain an institution where living will be made suitable for all and sundry. The goal of SIJ Foundation is ” to be our brothers keepers” with education ranking high amongst our objectives. Our ideology is steadfast with the belief that – if you are in a position to improve the lives of your fellow man, do so.
