I was a Philanthropist before i joined politics, i derive Joy from Giving - Hon. Ekene Adams

Hon. Ekene Adams Abubakar in this interview, stated that his philanthropic works has nothing to do with politics, as he was into philanthropy before he joined politics. 
He added that he derives Joy from giving, which is the reason he'll continue to assist the less privileged regardless of the criticisms that comes with it. 

Sir, why do you have excess love and respect for humanity? 

Hon Ekene Adams: Human beings are the key resources that we must consider first before anything, their welfare is paramount and must be giving attention and care at all cost. Without them life is nothing and meaningless. It gives me joy and peace of mind putting smiles on people's faces and that's my priority. 

Sir, some people said you are doing this for political reasons and benefits what can you say about that? 

Hon Ekene Adams: People who hate the truth will never accept it no matter how clear it is before them, even before i engaged in politics the act of philanthropy has been part of me and it has define me better and more than the politics itself, a good name is better than wealth. so their words and criticisms will never stop me from doing the needful to the needy and in addition to that 2023 is still far for me to start any campaign what i am doing now is empowerment and i maintain that for now.  

Sir, why despite how some people are criticizing your act of philanthropy you never stop and still went ahead to empower many? 

Hon. Ekene Adams: Just like i said earlier, i have this inbuilt willingness and zeal that keeps burning inside me, i am not the richest man but the little i have i find comfort in sharing it with people, my giving to them does not just affect them positively alone  but it also affects me positively too cos of the joy i derive from it. 
What people don't understand about giving is that:
1. No one has ever become poor by giving. 
2. The happiest people are not the ones getting more but those giving more. 
3. We must give more in order to get more. It is the generous giving of ourselves that produces the generous harvest.
4. We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.
5. The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.
Finally, my act of philanthropy is to pass a massage to the upcoming generation and the future leaders on the immense value for human life than material things. Life is for the living and not for the dead. If I don't help the people while they are still alive will I help after they are dead? NO! so we'll continue the good work in order to make the world a better place for all of us.
