Indeed, it would not have been an exaggeration if he had been described
as the “King of Groove”.Multi-millionaire businessman, Gerald Anozobo, once ruled the social
While he “reigned”, he drove posh cars, wore expensive designer
watches and was a VIP card-carrying member of many A-list night clubs on the Lagos Island.
In fact, it was gathered that club owners could afford to shut any
other person out of their clubs as long as the man was around.
But suddenly, Azonobo’s face became a rarity at his regular hangouts
and social events.
This phase, no doubt, gave a lot of his friends a serious concern.
During this period of hiatus, many claimed that Azonobo was broke, while
some maintained that he was only trying to kick some old habits.
But one thing was obvious: many night clubs counted their losses with
his new found ‘lifestyle’
However, if you think the man is all about ‘groove, you are dead
The real estate merchant has another passion, which is to help the youth
out of poverty and make them actualize their potentials. He has been
pursuing this through his KUTH Foundation.
According to the Foundation, eighty percent of the teenagers who
engage in drug addiction, cultism, prostitution, teenage pregnancy,
abortion, examination malpractices and rape are Secondary School Leavers
who failed WAEC at their first sitting and whose parents are unable to
re-enroll them for GCE due to lack of funds.
So, in the bid to curb the moral decadence that the society is faced
with, the Foundation mooted the idea of a back- to- school project to
the Foundation’s Board of Trustees.
Eventually, “KUTH back to School” project was approved, in line with
the Stay Alive Programme of the foundation, which has been ongoing since
2014 in some schools and churches across Lagos State.
Speaking on the Foundation, he said: “The idea behind “KUTH Back to
School” project is to make available free GCE forms to a minimum of
twenty (20) indigent students living within Amuwo Odofin LGA on a
“The portal for interested students was opened on August 5, and closed
on August 19, 2019.
“Despite the closure of the process, the number had to be increased to
twenty-five (25) due to the high number of applications we received. But
the new five (5) entrants were late entries.”
The pilot scheme of the project was flagged of on August 21, 2019 at
Frankkids Amusement Park, Festac Town, where Twenty-five (25) students
who met the Foundation’s criteria were formally presented with their
In his goodwill message, the Founder/Principal Promoter of KUTH
Foundation, Azonobo enjoined the winners to be steadfast in their
studies, noting that education is the bedrock for a better future,
catalyst for social development and economic emancipation from the
shackles of poverty. He assured the participants that the student with
the best overall result will be offered a scholarship.

Resident doctors threaten to embark on indefinite strike on Thursday, April 1
There was palpable fear after Members of the Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) threatens to embark on an indefinite strike on Thursday, April 1.
The body disclosed (NARD) that the strike will be coming on the heels of the expiration of the 60-day ultimatum given to the Federal Government on January 25 for the payment of arrears of salaries of house officers across the country and the review of hazard allowance, among other demands. According to members of the association, since the pandemic began in 2020, it has lost 17 doctors, whose families and loved ones are yet to benefit from the Death in Service Insurance Scheme.
According to a statement released in Abuja by the President of NARD, Dr Uyilawa Okhuaihesuyi, after NARD’s extra-ordinary National Executive Council (NEC) meeting on Sunday, March 28, reads in part
“The NEC observed that her earlier ultimatum given to the Federal Government during the January 2021 NEC meeting in Owerri will expire by 12 midnight on the 31st of March 2021 with no significant achievement.
The NEC reiterated her full support for the Central Placement of House Officers. Nevertheless, they decried the agony our members have been made to pass through for three months now without salaries despite uninterrupted service delivery to the nation.
This is due to the inefficiency of the Registrar of MDCN in handling the processes of central placement of House Officers as approved by the Federal Executive Council since 2017.
The NEC bemoaned the suffering of some of our members in GIFMIS platform who have not been paid salaries for four months now due to delay in biometric capturing by IPPIS department.
They lamented the inhumane treatment being meted on our members in some State Tertiary Institutions like ABSUTH being owed twenty months salaries, IMSUTH five months salaries and UNIMEDTH three months salaries.
The NEC also observed that despite the three-month window given to the Federal Government to review the hazard allowance of health workers, the hazard allowance has remained a paltry sum of five thousand naira monthly.
The NEC noted that despite the efforts of NARD, the erroneously paid 2020 Medical Residency Training Fund (MRTF) to non-resident Doctors is yet to be addressed. Also, the 2019, some of 2020 and 2021 MRIF are yet to be paid.”
