30 years old midfielder John Obi Mikel, who grew up in the restive central Nigerian city of Jos, says he wants to provide assistance to youths in Nigeria and displaced people in the West African country.
“The foundation’s aim is to get youths back on their feet, and hopefully raise the aspirations of the affected people,” Mikel told journalist.
“I intend to make this a lifetime thing if it achieves its purpose. I have been in talks with other NGOs and have approached a number of corporate organisations.
“Hopefully, they’ll see that they can get involved with The Mikel Obi Foundation,” he said.
