The 5th G.O.D. Awards announces its HUMANITARIAN ICON OF AFRICA in the illustrious personality of Dr. Samuel "Amo"Tobbin, Chairman of Tobinco Group of Companies and Samuel Tobbin Foundation.
Princess Maria Amor, founder and president of We Care for Humanity and Chairman of the G.O.D. Awards declares: "Humility is a curious prerequisite for any philanthropist. Without humility, successful people tend to lose their path and overindulge of their misguided fruits of success. Consequently, failure is what propel great leaps forward to teach a valuable lesson. To understand that compassion and faith are not signs of weakness and despair, but tools to help realize the potential of helping a fellow person. These are the qualities that composes a standard that is needed to elevate humanity.
The most wonderful trait a humanitarian has is the spirit to help realize the potential of the fellow human. Mr. Samuel Tobbin you have crossed the road of success and while strengthening Tobinco Group of Companies you have innovatively created opportunities and empowered communities with the Tobinco Foundation. In a thanksgiving speech, you stated Use Dialogue Not Violence, your intrinsic philanthropic prowess is what distinguishes the typical businessman from you, a bonafied humanitarian. From helping children with scholarships, to empowering widows to be active agents of change in Ghana. It is even clearer that your humility and selflessness has brought happier lives for the children, women and widows of Ghana and a better future for all of humanity.
Your Excellency Samuel Tobbin, I have the great pleasure to announce that the 5th Global Officials of Dignity (G.O.D.) Awards Committee have reached a unanimous decision to recognize His Excellency as HUMANITARIAN ICON OF AFRICA.
