Itel donates educational items to pupils on Children’s Day

Itel Nigeria has given out libraries, books, school bags, and other educational items to pupils of Command Children School, Ikeja-Lagos to commemorate Children’s Day 2022.

Olamide Adedeji, the Afro-pop star brand ambassador of itel mobile made the donation over the weekend amid a fun fare event tagged, “Stars of Tomorrow”, geared to further place itel brand as people’s number brand.

Olamide shared his childhood experience while urging the children never to lose hope in achieving their dreams, and to embrace hard work secret key to success.

‘‘I am a kid from the corner that chose not to let his environment decide what he becomes. Through hard work, dedication, and prayers you can achieve greatness.

“You can become what you want to become without allowing your background to affect you. It is good to get yourself a mentor. Make sure you are focused.

“To some people, success is power, money, and education, everyone here should be able to have one of these things. Success is a function of the mind. Never be pressured, always put in your best,’’ Olamide said.

He enjoined the children to dream big in life and never to let the environment and ecosystem they found themselves in hold them down.
