They Were Sent Out Of School Over School Fees, A Man Saw Them & This Happened (Pics)
- They Were Sent Out Of School Over School Fees, A Man Saw Them & This Happened (Pics)
I don’t really know how to compose this message but I will start somehow….
1. The kids that were sent out of School for School fees which later turned to blessing in disguise
2. Mr Akin Fadeyi, Mr Gani Olowu and Mr Adun Martins that ran into the kids and paid School fees on 17 students… Hmmm, I think these set of men are rare in Nigeria and deserve tgo be celebrated
2. The kind hearted Nigerian based in UK that offered tgo pay School fees of 2 Secondary Students till they graduate, I think such a man ought to be celebrated
1. From the story I got from Mr Akin’s facebook timeline, I was moved and blessed and I had to start praying for these set of people, they happened to be the Solution to these kids problem.
17 of those kids were sent out of School because of School fees i.e. N2,350 each. (You can read the full story on his timeline), these visionary men instructed the kids to write their names and reachable phone numbers on a sheet of paper and told the kids to go home and MUST return to School the following day. These men went to the School principal to ask all that happened and confirmed that they were indeed sent out of School, to cut the story short, these men cleared(paid) the fees on these kids same day. Note: God picked calls of 17 kids at a time
That same day I guess, Mr Akin took to his facebook account to share his experience and solicited for help for kids in School that are having financial challenges. God miraculously sent a man called Mr Tope Ayedun, a Nigerian based in UK who offered scholarship to two students from same school (i.e. The less privileged ones). The two students are RAMATU ALIYU and ABEL AUTA.
Here is another area of Mr Akin’s post that caught my attention
yesterday, ABEL AUTA soberly renounced cult involvements which he was inexcusably pushed into out of frustration and quest for delirious escapism. Tope, I know you don’t like me to do this, but covering this act of goodness is tantamount to covering SMOKE with BASKET
Nairalanders, I think we need gto first celebrate and appreciate these three men that took it upon themselves to invest in the kids future and Mr Tope Ayedun that offered to assist two of the kids on scholarship.
The CHANGE we are shouting begins with us, better Nigeria starts from you…
I remember a quote that states… EVERY CHILD IS YOUR CHILD
These year is indeed a year God is gonna pick calls of those that earnestly desire Him for HELP
Pls let’s push this to the from page to appreciate these great men.
They deserve to be celebrated.
Let us as well join the cause or we initiate NAIRALAND’s version…. We have executed several humanitarian projects in the past, let’s keep the fire burning.
Last week I posted a picture and story on how I had to intervene in the payment of the school fees of 10 secondary school students of GSS, Mabuchi in Abuja who were sent home for not been able to pay a fee we could ordinarily eat SUYA with, or “hangout” with. Naturally, I do many things that I don’t post, because giving to the poor should be routine. Not that I’m rich but because if you’re able to feed yourself, you must share with others who can’t. If you’re able to pay your child’s school fees, you must consistently look out for some children whose fees haven’t been paid owing to social economic inequalities. I posted that gesture to drive home the point that there’s a compelling imperative out there to touch lives. Same way we should not haggle or quibble with a pepper and tomato seller until she sells to us at a price without profit for her. We’ll smile away but she’ll SIGH in pain!
I want to say a BIG thank you to a very spirited Nigerian in the diaspora, Tope Ayedun who read my post on these less privileged students and has offered to pick 2 more from the school and pay their school fees till they become secondary school graduands. Gàníyù Olówu and I went back there yesterday to break this news and the Principal was excited and almost got emotional.
The two lucky students in are RAMATU ALIYU and ABEL AUTA. And wait for this…yesterday, ABEL AUTA soberly renounced cult involvements which he was inexcusably pushed into out of frustration and quest for delirious escapism. Tope, I know you don’t like me to do this, but covering this act of goodness is tantamount to covering SMOKE with BASKET…Its impossible!
