Friends, colleagues, associates, well-wishers and protégés have continued to pour in encomiums on widely acclaimed philanthropist and human investor, Comrade Western Iyamu, on the occasion of his birthday today August 10th, 2022.
Many who are majorly “Westerners” (followers of Western [Iyamu]) and members of the UNIBEN Comrades Community, UCC, where the celebrant is a member, have taken to social media to celebrate Comrade Iyamu, describing him as God’s gift to the World and mankind.
CAMPUS GIST reports that the celebrant, Comrade Western Iyamu, Chairman and Founder of the Western Iyamu Foundation, is a prominent University of Benin alumnus who has used his Foundation to touch the lives of many: dedicating his time, energy and resources; in seeing others succeed.
He has continued to use his influence and affluence to raise many successful personalities, including helping those whose dreams are to study abroad achieve such dreams under his Western Iyamu Foundation.
Some of the early wishers include Ogochukwu Isioma, Publisher of CAMPUS GIST, who eulogised the celebrant for influencing many lives positively and for having and exhibiting a sense of responsibility as a leader.
For the UNIBEN Comrades Community, the group described Comrade Iyamu as a “noble, dependable and dedicated leader par excellence”, praying for a sound health and many more years for the celebrant.
“You have exhibited uncommon wisdom, remarkable vision, and exemplary leadership. We wish you peace, good health, and happiness,” UCC said.
“As you mark your years of existence on Earth today, May you have many more years and sound health to stay with us and continue to lead!
“You have been a role model and an example of selfless giving to this generation, and we are proud to hold you as someone worthy of emulation,” the group added.
Other protégés who have equally joined the list of well-wishers include diasporan-Comrades Kevin ‘Kaka’ Omokaro (UNIBEN alumni worldwide PRO), Oguche Divine Omale (ex-UNIBEN Students Union PRO) and Arigbe Victor (ex-NANS Official) – all of whom have ascribed their successes within and outside the country to Comrade Iyamu.
As at the time of filing this report, more wishes and encomiums are still pouring in for the celebrant from far and wide on all social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, WhatsApp groups and App’s statuses.
