Popular Nigerian Comedian and actor, Julius Agwu says he spends Millions of Naira every year to help the needy. The Comedian who recently underwent a brain surgery in the United States of America, also thank God for keeping him alive. While speaking with The Nation, the comedian talked about his charity works;
“I have been doing so much in terms of charity for many years in Nigeria. I spend millions of Naira yearly to help the needy. I have so many indigent people including students that I am training in schools and universities under my scholarship scheme. There are some that are on permanent salaries. I have also helped so many of my colleagues with even serious illnesses.
But just like my nature, it’s not part of me to come to the pages of newspapers or electronic media to be announcing that like some other people do. Just as the bible says, let not your right hand know what your left is doing. I’ll rather keep such to myself rather than blowing my own trumpet. So many people would have died if they went through the surgery I had, but here I am talking to you. Do you know why God spared my life? It could be for the little that I have been doing for people in need. Their prayers probably have reached God on my behalf; I thank God for everything.”
He Also said;
“The Julius Agwu Foundation here in Atlanta was able to give out items (food) to the needy. Due to this and other charity works, I was also recently given an honorary citizenship of the City of River Dale in Atlanta Georgia by the Mayor of River Dale because of my charity and philanthropy. I have been doing this charity work for years even in Nigeria and I have not been recognised or even appreciated for one day, but the Americans have honoured me. This only strengthens the saying that a prophet is without honour in his home country.”
