Samuel is social innovator, hence, he sees his role in the way the society is managed and developed as a sine qua non. He is poised to be the change he hankers for in the society. Samuel strongly believes in fact that young people are not only the leaders of tomorrow, but partners of today. Hence, he is passionate about the empowerment and development of young people. More so, Samuel sees human capital development and capacity building as surefire ways to bring about a more prosperous and sustainable future for all.
Samuel is sui generis because he can give birth to an idea and project it. To him, ideas are the magic wand of men entirely great. He believes that every impact-project sprouted from an idea.
