When the words “auction some personalities” came up in the brief explainer for the Enough is Enough (EiE) dinner night/fundraiser, it might have sounded strange but we must admit that it is a unique way of raising funds.
The EiE fundraiser held yesterday, April 15, at Harbour Point, Victoria Island and (in case you don’t know) the funds will be used for the Office of the Citizen and RSVP programs.
Apart from personalities like Innocent Idibia (2Baba) and his wife Annie, Timi Dakolo, Aramide who performed at the event, Nigerians from all walks of life were there to join in the struggle to promote advocacy and make our leaders more responsible.
