Always eager to ensure that Organisations and people are concerned about the image they project by association or public expressions, he, along with a group of friends decided on establishing a movement that would take on this role for the continent of Africa. “Project iamafrica” was birthed in 2013 in Cameroun and a plan to launch in Nigeria before the end of the year. “Project iamnigeria” will draw inspiration from the quote, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world, indeed it is the only thing that ever has”.
