Tell us about your NGO, Acts Against Violence In Nigeria..
I have a passion for humanity and love everyone to be at peace, so l started an NGO (Act Against Violence in Nigeria Initiative). This NGO is aimed at combating all forms of violence alongside assisting victims of violence in Nigeria. More so nothing on earth can be acquired through violence.
