The Chairman of Cubana Group, Obinna Iyiegbu, also known as Obi Cubana has called on Nigerian youths to contribute to lifting the nation by lending a helping hand.
In a post via his Instagram page on Monday, he said the primary call of a man is to humanity, but people would rather compete with each other than collaborate.
The entrepreneur added that ‘supporting another person’s success won’t dampen yours and lightening another’s candle won’t blow off yours.’
He posted, “Good morning my fellow Nigerian youths. Today let’s talk about “Lending A Helping Hand.” Ever heard of the saying, “We rise by lifting others? Everyone needs help every now and then. And we can only get help through people. Even when we pray for help, God still uses people to answer that prayer. So you can actually see that we are all connected in this universe.
“Our first and primary call is to humanity but sadly, we seem to have lost that. We’d rather compete with each other than support one another.
Be more collaborative than competitive!!! Supporting another’s success won’t dampen yours. Lighting another’s candle definitely won’t blow out yours. Be nice to people. Maybe it’ll be unappreciated, unreciprocated or simply ignored, it doesn’t matter! Just spread the love anyways;
preach love, practice love, show love.
The socialite continued, “Do a little something every day to help out either at home, office or community because it translates into big things.
When you help others, your life starts to have meaning & purpose. Real joy comes not from material possessions but people. We were called to be human first. So our main priority on earth is to help each other and be our brother’s keeper.
“Please be that person that’ll make a difference in someone else’s life. Help others achieve their dreams and you will achieve yours. At the end of the day, it’s not about what you have or even accomplished, it’ll be about who you’ve lifted or who you’ve made better. I charge you this Monday to dare to reach out into darkness to pull another person into the light. Seek for who you’ll hold their hands for…Together, we rise! Ubuntu…I am because you are! ( in my South African voice).” (sic)
