The initiative kicked off today, Monday, 11th December, 2017 at the BRT Bus Park, Obalende roundabout, Lagos, with the Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of Airtel, Mr. Segun Ogunsanya, leading his colleagues to feed over a thousand people at the venue.

According to Ogunsanya, “Christmas is a time of celebration, festivity and love. Airtel, in celebration of this yuletide, remains committed to spreading love, joy, and happiness across the communities where we operate.

“We are passionate about uplifting and empowering Nigerians and will continue to create and support platforms that make lives better for our consumers.
