Held in Eko Hotel Convention Centre, Victoria Island, the episodes were met with positive reviews, with several guests lauding Airtel for truly touching the lives of those in dire need of help.

In his keynote address, Yemi Osinbajo commended the telecommunications giant for supporting the Government’s efforts in helping the vulnerable through improved access to healthcare, welfare, housing, among others.

“I really want to laud the effort of SegunOgunsanya and his team at Airtel for touching so many lives and for doing so in the past five years without fanfare. Listening to the stories of the lives that have been touched must be a reminder of so many others in despair who need our help and comfort”, he stated.

A major highlight of the new season is the story of how Airtel confronted the issues being faced at the Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camp in Borno, Maiduguri. The facilities at the camp were overpopulated, with inhabitants crossing the 30,000 limits in 2018. Camp managers revealed that in January of 2018, new arrivals exceeded 3,000 as the Boko Haram terrorist group displaced more people from villages around Borno.
