Double Honours for Dumo Lulu-Briggs

It is not news that Chief Dumo Lulu-Briggs, born with a silver spoon in his mouth, has never known or experienced hardship. But beyond that, he surely knows the importance of giving and impacting society.

He is a philanthropist of note, passionate about meeting the needs of the indigent without expecting any pecuniary gains.

If there is anything he wants to be remembered for, it is as a man who has a passion for doing good all the time.

This he does without expecting rewards from anyone. But like the quotes of the popular Bishop of Caesarea, also called Saint Basil the Great: “A good deed is never lost. He who sows courtesy, reaps friendship; he who plants kindness, gathers love; pleasure bestowed on a grateful mind was never sterile, but generally gratitude begets reward,” the oil guru and Chairman of Platform Petroleum is beginning to reap from the seeds of goodness he has planted.

Recently, he was honoured in London with the prestigious Euroknowledge Exceptional Leadership Award for Year 2023. The award highlights his remarkable achievements and unwavering commitment to excellence in the private sector and philanthropy.

While accepting the award presented by a former Washington State Senator, Mona Das, Dumo spoke on the empowerment of women across the globe to achieve greater heights and assume positions of leadership.

He noted that women should be given all the needed help to grow and assume their role as nation builders, reiterating his commitment to further empowering women around him and contributing to the uplift of humanity through his Dumo Lulu-Briggs Foundation. The award recipient disclosed that he would be giving more women leadership positions at Platform Petroleum.

The Rivers State-born entrepreneur and politician expressed his gratitude to the Foreign Investment Network (FIN), the organizers of the Euro Knowledge Award and Forbes Best of Africa Awards for acknowledging his efforts and accomplishments.

Also, the politician, at the Westminster Hilton Hotel, received the Global Peace Leadership Award for his contribution to global peace as a politician and a businessman and his commitment to creating value and employment for millions of youths across the country.
