I love to help the poor, says Swag Omoluabi
The love for the poor and the vulnerable in society is so paramount in the heart of Ipadeola Abiodun Oriyomi, who is fondly called Swag Omoluabi, and he has been showing both by word and action.
Swag Omoluabi finds it with ease to show his philanthropic spirit to the people around him irrespective of their ethnic and religious backgrounds.
This act of giving could be likened to an in-born passion in the life of this young man who is into production and marketing of furniture items. His belief for doing this is just to fulfil one of the core beliefs of the world’s top religions that says love your neighbour as yourself and be a cheerful giver to the poor.
Speaking about his passion for philanthropy during a recent interview in Lagos, the CEO of Swag Omoluabi Blog and Omoluabi Logistics said: “I believe in the saying ‘give, no matter how little it is.’ To me giving is fun. Giving is my passion because I love to see people happy.”
It comes as no surprise to see Swag Omoluabi on the streets of Lagos doing what he knows how to do best. His philanthropic outreach was visibly seen recently at Ijora-Badia where he fed the vulnerable by sharing food items to the people.
“It has always been my delight to see people around me feeling happy. When we were at Ijora-Badia during one of our street outreaches, I could see happiness and joy on the faces of those recipients of our charity outreach drive. The people were happy and, I must confess, their happiness becomes my happiness. They were filled with joy because food is life,” he said.
According to Swag Omoluabi, if those who have can be so magnanimous enough to assist their fellow humans in need, the world will be a better place.
“My street outreach to connect with the downtrodden has been a success and it gives me joy and sense of fulfilment,” he continued. “I want to see myself living for the poor in the society. They are all human beings who deserve our love, care, attention and support materially.
“God is always happy to see people giving out to the poor out of what they have. We must be cheerful givers. I want people around me to be happy at all times. I want to advise other Nigerians that we need to learn how to give to society and make other people happy and blessed,” added Swag Omoluabi
