“I am particularly pleased that the matriarch of the Osinbajo Family had thought it worthy to establish the Olubisi Osinbajo Foundation, which caters to the well-being of widows and families of clergymen.
”It is an initiative I recommend to other endowed people in our society, as it has lofty rewards not only here, but also in the hereafter.
