'Gbenga Sesan, 40, Gives ICT Scholarship to 22 Nigerians at the 2017 Tai Solarin Memorial Walk Today

The globally acclaimed ICT genius and founder of Paradigm Initiative Nigeria (PIN), who clocked 40 today, gladly gives ICT scholarship to 22 volunteered Nigerians who had never had computer knowledge or training before. This is his birthday gift to some of the participants of the 2017 Tai Solarin Memorial Walk which took place today from the National Stadium, Surulere, Lagos to Yaba Bus Stop where the statue of our immortal national hero is.

This surprised birthday gift from 'Gbenga Sesan was innocently offered during the course of a motivational speech he delivered at the occasion titled "Tai Solarin, Curses, Darkness and Candles". He said this is part of personal social responsibilities he has been used to for some years now in line with Tai Solarin's spirit of patriotism and philanthropy in raising and grooming what he termed citizen heroes.

The highly impactful lecture at the base of Tai Solarin's statue was regularly interspersed with rousing ovation from the listening audience at the Memorial Walk. Some ex-Mays joyfully joined both the walk and the lecture. Among the great Nigerians at the event are the co-founder and emeritus chairman of Tai Solarin Organisation (TSO), Mr. Akinbayo A. Adenubi, mni; Mr. Olutayo Keshinro - Chairman of TSO; Sulaiman Dave Bola-Babs - Coordinator of TSO; Engr. Titi Omo-Ettu and Azeez Ayodele who are eminent Board Members of TSO.
