The CEO of Ovation International, Dele Momodu, has said that he wants to give most of his income to the less privileged, stressing the fact that he is not doing so for any political ambition.
On his Twitter page on Sunday, August 16, he said he now understands what Jesus said about the rich trading off their wealth to help the poor.
Attaching screenshots of appreciation messages from those he had helped in the past, the media mogul said he would encourage his family and friends to give more to charity.
Dele said that the only things he wants in return for his goodwill to people are prayers as he asked God to help him in the new philanthropy move.
He tweeted: "When JESUS said the rich should sell off their riches and offer to the poor, I now understand better. I feel so fulfilled and ready to give most of my income to the poor, expecting nothing but only PRAYERS in return, and will encourage my friends to join me... GOD HELP ME," he said.
Many reacted to his new pledge as they prayed for him, wishing more blessings on his life. Below are some of their comments:
