On the international front, Emmanuel recently represented Nigeria in Bangladesh, India on 28th July 2020 via Google Meet virtual conference alongside Indian Professors and Mental Health Advocates, where he spoke on “Suicide Prevention” as an offshoot of the Covid-19 pandemic situation which has become a major health challenge across the World. Emmanuel, who seeks financial support and partnership from national and international stakeholders to drive home solutions to Nigeria was able to share innovative ideas from his sensational story and field experiences that have restored hope to over 200,000 people in Edo, Kogi, Kwara and other parts Nigeria and beyond.

Emmanuel told international television network, British Broadcasting Corporation, BBC News that the experience of raising money to register one exam after the other for 17 times in 5 years before he secured admission into the University was a traumatic experience.

“My mom has been the one God used in sponsoring majority of my enrollments throughout the 16 primary schools, 14 secondary schools and the entire 17 O’level examination attempts, including the University Matriculation Examinations (UME) I wrote 5 times”.

“As shocking as it may appear, my mom spent virtually all her salaries thereby neglecting her personal needs as a School Teacher, she borrowed money from people, engaged in all types of petty businesses shamelessly and sometimes went the extra mile to obtain bank loan just to sponsor my enrollments and education and that of my other siblings. She trained us in God’s way from childhood and she never gave up on any of her children despite oppossing tides and societal challenges. She encouraged us all the way, she will always say, “don’t be tired, all will become well.”
