Oba Aladelusi who commended the Sunshine Food Bank Initiative for giving back to Akure community at this time when hunger had ravaged the country, urged other Akure natives to emulate such gesture.

He said “ Kola Ogunsua had been doing it according to quarters in each community in Akure, but now he has extended and elaborated the gesture to the whole Akure at a go.

“He is not the richest in Akure but he finds it necessary and has the Spirit of God. He knows the problems of our community.

“He knows there is hunger in Akure and he said the best he could do is to give a little to the less privileged and he is doing that today and I want others to emulate him.

“If you go to advanced countries,they do something like this and distribute food to the poor. They even send such gesture to Africa, so it is a commendable initiative and I pray that God will continue to bless him.”

In a remark founder of the initiative, mr Kola Ogunsua said the NGO resolved to embark on the food distribution programme for the aged because of negative effects outrageous price of food stuffs had on many Nigerians.
