A young man identified as Ugomdi Ogbonna is the news because of his good deeds. The man was reported to have enrolled a 12-year-old boy and street hawker into a school.
Ogbonna disclosed that the little boy Favour Emmanuel comes to his office every day to sell groundnut. He added that even if you are not interested, Emmanuel has a way of convincing you to buy his groundnut.
The man disclosed that one day he called the boy to his office and asked why he was not in school, Emmanuel replied saying ever since his father died in Rivers state, Nigeria they relocated back to Aba to stay with his grandmother.
According to Ayara Margaret who shared the post on her Facebook profile on Tuesday, November 21, said: “This handsome 12 years old boy comes to my workshop every other morning to sell groundnut to my workers. He is so experienced in the business that he knows how to convince you to spend your last cash buying his product. Last week, I called him into my office and asked him why he is selling groundnut by this time of the day when he should be in school. Favour Emmanuel told me he doesn't enjoy selling groundnut but ever since they lost their father, life has become so difficult for them. They couldn't maintain their rent in Rivers state after the death of their father, so they moved back to Aba (Nigeria) and joined their grandma in her one room apartment. Groundnut has been our only means of survival he said. I told Favour to go home and bring his mother. The rest of the day was with Favour and his mum in pool of tears of joy as I told them I will take care of Favour's education all through secondary and tertiary level. Even though first term is half spent, I still summoned courage and begged a school principal to partner with me in taking favour out of the street by admitting him irrespective of his lateness. Finally, Favour got registered, school fees and acceptance fees fully paid, school uniforms, shoes, books and other items fully provided. Please, don't call this a show off! Don't tag it a post for comments and likes. I wanted to keep this off social Media but someone needs to know that we are only SAVED TO SAVE SOULS.”
