Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed has hosted Chairman of Prince Ned Nwoko Foundation and Billionaire Antarctica Explorer, Prince Ned Nwoko at his office in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory.
The duo had good deliberations on how to partner the Ministry in order to propagate Nwoko’s Anti-Malaria initiative.
Prince Nwoko shared the areas of focus of the Project with his host, which are: Research for safe Malaria Vaccine, Sanitation and Cleaning of the entire environment, Waste Management and Establishment of recycling plants in every local government and finally total fumigation of the length and breath of the country.
According to Prince Nwoko, ‘Everyone is a stakeholder in the Malaria Project, all hands must be on deck to end malaria in Nigeria and Africa’ .
The Chairman was hosted alongside his wife and popular actress Regina Daniels as well as the Project Coordinator Mr. Chukwuebuka Anyaduba.
Nwoko is regarded as a champion of bright initiatives. As a member of House of Representative from 1999 to 2003, Nwoko sponsored a Bill for the establishment of a National Information Network Centre and a bill for an Act establishing a National Disability Allowance.
Other bills he sponsored are an Act for prohibition of corporal punishment in schools, a Bill for an Act for compulsory vehicle road worthiness test, National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) reform bill (2000), bill for an Act to establish public funds recovery and reward commission and a bill for an Act for the establishment of a National Minimum Wages Council.
Prince Ned Nwoko is known for his random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for him. He is a Nigerian who has maintained an Open Door Policy and has been described as a man whose gate is open 24hours of a day to both poor and the rich with no visible security men to scare away visitors and no high walls to prevent people from entering or seeing what goes on inside.
