A mind-blowing career of Dr. Linus Chinedu Okorie
I was amazed today when my client told me to publish a profile of Dr. Linus Okorie Chinedu, the Founder of Guardians of the Nations International (GOTNI) Abuja. I would have rephrased it to become an official article, but doing that will reduce the impact of the content, hence, I have decided to share the profile as it was sent. I am optimistic that this will inspire the public.
