PHILANTHROPIST: Omisore Locates The Disable Boy Who Sells Sachet Water, Vows To Sponsor His Education
Hon Ipoola Omisore, a former member of the Lagos state House of Assembly, has finally found the physically challenged boy who, in the photograph I earlier posted on my Facebook page seen selling sachet water.
His name is Chiagozie Sunday Nweke and the lawmaker said apart from the scholarship, he plans to provide the boy with an artificial leg and pocket money which would be deposited in an account to be opened in his name.
The boy is not from Ibadan,Oyo state capital as it was earlier reported on my Facebook page yesterday as finding revealed he is from Abakaliki in Ebonyi State.
He said that the boy, who supports his movement with crutches while hawking sachet water, was discovered in Abakaliki, Ebonyi state.
“I spoke with his parents and told them of my intention to bring the boy to Lagos and enroll him in my school, but his mother refused. I agreed with them. It is not easy to trust anyone, he said.
“From the philanthropist’s discussion with the parents,her got to know that they survive mostly on the sachet water the young boy sells and that he had been doing this diligently not minding his condition. All he wants is to see that they can eat.
“he has therefore asked them to go open an account in the boy’s name because I got over 20 people, some from outside Nigeria , who have volunteered to help
him and his parents,”
