The Port Harcourt politician and philanthropist, Barrister Dumo Lulu Briggs has said that the true world of a man is his ability to give back to the society by caring for those who are truthfully in need. He said it recently in Lagos while receiving two awards of achievements presented to him by Outstanding Media Organisation (OMO).
It is said that service to humanity leads to greatness. The philanthropic nature of Dumo Lulu Briggs, a one time Chairman of the governing council of Maritime Academy of Nigeria at Oron, has distinguished him from his contemporaries as he was honoured with two awards of achievements in Ikoyi, Lagos on Thursday July 24 2014 by Outstanding Media Organisation in recognition of his selfless service to humanity.
The organization which is into media consultancy, achievements and corporate awards has over the years thoroughly observed the recipient of the two awards; Special and Outstanding Achievements Awards, for his great support and contribution to democracy and good governance in the society, most especially Rivers State. According to the representative of the OMO, James Charles, “we have observed that Chief Dumo Lulu Briggs among many others derives pleasure in making sure that everyone is comfortable. His humility and caring nature was also seen during his 50th birthday, which was celebrated recently with those in need; orphanage homes and the elderly in the society. His unprecedented record of assisting people without meeting them and so many other achievements within his native state and across the country have qualified him for the awards”, he said.
On receiving the awards, the amiable first son of elder statesman and billionaire industrialist/philanthropist, High Chief O.B. Lulu-Briggs of Rivers State commended the Organisation for recognizing him for his contribution to humanity. He believes in making life meaningful to his people and those that have been privileged to come in contact with him. In his words, one of the things that give him joy is giving back to the society that has culminated in making him what he is today. According to him, “The true world of a man is the way he treats people who are absolutely in need. If you care about people in need, you are actually making a contribution to the development of the nation. We need to give life back to the people; democracy is important in the way of governance. We need to try and see how we can use the available resources for everybody; create opportunities for all and care especially for those who are truly in need. The gap between the rich and the poor should be bridged.
