behind the epoch making event.

expected to be an annual event henceforth.

weight behind the celebrity walk because “it is a very good initiative. Drug 
abuse is one of the ills that our company stands against, so it is just natural 
for us to be part of this history in the making. Let me seize this opportunity 
to call on all Nigerians to emulate this giant initiative taken by Lamboginny.”
