KADUNA, North-West, Nigerian – A Kaduna based popular Radio presenter – Radio Corps Marshal a.k.a ‘Oga D’, Mr Philip Omachi, celebrated his birthday on Sunday, with the children of Faith Works Orphanage Home in Zaria road/Kwoi Street, Sabon Tasha in Chikun Local Government Area of the state.
‘Oga D’ as he’s fondly called who was in high spirit said he chose to mark this year’s birthday with the orphans and widows to give them a sense of belonging in the society.
The celebration supported by EuroForm saw the presentation of a cheque of N200,000 and lots of food items like; 2 bags of rice, a bag of beans, bags of 3kgs semovita, cartons of sphaghetti, cartons of Indomie, 3 gerri cans of vegitable oil, tubers of yam, Detergents, packets of assorted bathing soaps, toilleteries, cakes, among others to the children.
Fielding questions shortly after the presentation, Mr. Omachi said he felt the only way to celebrate this year’s birthday was to mark it with orphans and widows.
According to him, what informed him to carry out humanitarian service during his birthday is God; “My prayers while growing up was to be an instrument of God to be a blessing to humanity. I don’t see why I should have while others lack.
“I’m not doing this for people to see, rather I’m doing it as God directed me to do. Today, I intend to visit 2 orphanage homes, this is the first one and from here we will proceed to the second one at Romi community.
“With the support of EuroFoam, we are able to buy items worth thousands of Naira and a cheque of N200,000 drawn infavour of Faith Works Orphanage Home to cater for the children. These are the set of people that actually needs our help.
‘Oga D’ called on Nigerians to make it a responsibility to remember the poor, orphans and widows because they need our care and love.
“I urge the general public to always reach out to the orphans in the society. Do not wait until you become super rich to help them. Come with whatever you have to support them. God does not joke with orphans and widows,” he said.
Responding, Founder of the Orphanage Home, Mrs Gertrude Njoku, who was short of words said; “We are dazed. But first thing I want to say is; I am 72 years this year. And God will cause Oga Driver to live up to my age. And all of you to live up to my age.
“I want to thank Oga Driver for thinking like our Lord Jesus Christ, by coming to mark his birthday with these children. Children that people will not even bother, rather will go to important places to rock n roll.
“And today being a day to show love – Valentine’s Day he choose to also come here and bless us. On behalf of the children, we’re so thrill beyong measures. We don’t know what to say. At this time EuroFoam donated this amount to help us?,” she asked rhetorically.
Extolling Oga Driver’s kind gesture Mrs Njoku said; “In fact, to fixed these children in school last week I was going up and down. I could not even find money to pay the fees. I postponed it till coming week, I never knew that God has already made plans since He’s the Father of the fatherless.
“He made a plan for their fees and welfare. So, we’re very thankful. We thank God for Oga Driver for this kind of thoughts and believe that many people will also emulate him that the best way one can mark birthday is with people like these who have no one to look up to.
“We feel grateful. It’s a big surprise. We have not seen this type for sometime now. This type of visit and gesture with the hardship people find it difficult to even come and visit us.
“This one is like a bank fell down from heaven to help us. So we’re very grateful. The children are very excited. We can’t even find enough words to express the gratitude in our hearts. It’s beyond expression so, we’re thankful!
