But in that instance as he was fighting for his life and was surrounded by doom and gloom in physician shortage hospital…

Emmanuel collaborated with other healthcare professionals in reviewing applications in order to determine the level of care that is most appropriate for each applicant.
Emmanuel’s commitment to service is unparalleled, through his Foundation, The Emmanuel Osemota Foundation.
Emmanuel has empowered thousands of people in Nigeria and Africa.
Emmanuel believes in empowerment because without that, philanthropy has unintentionally caused more harm than good in developing countries.
Philanthropy most times drives out the local businesses because they provide what these local businesses already produced.
Philanthropy rather should focus on sustainability, meaning, philanthropy should listen, actually hear what the community needs, and collaborate with local communities.
By this, philanthropy can work!
By empowering local communities to fulfill their fullest potential!
We live in a dangerous world…
Make no mistake, and Sub-Sahara Africa is not immune from danger.
Unfortunately, many Africans are exposed to many dangers such as human trafficking, kidnapping, and many more unimaginable horrors.
Emmanuel’s impact on helping his fellow Nigerians extends to the country at large…
Emmanuel helped in several negotiations and provided funds to families impacted by the kidnappings inflicted on innocent people by the Nigerian underworld.
While in the USA, no matter how many calls and messages he receives from distressed families in Nigeria at however inopportune the time of day…
Emmanuel strives to come through each and every time.
The truth is that he is willing to be and must be flexible…
