Obi Iyiegbu, a businessman and socialite known as Obi Cubana, has kept his word and offered Jeremiah Ekumah a letter of scholarship.
Last week, Ekuma, a young hawker in Lagos’ Ajah neighborhood, was caught on camera giving money to people being transported to prison in a Nigerian Correctional Service van.
Obi Cubana, who chairs the Cubana Group, last Saturday, in an interview with media personality, Ifedayo Olarinde, popularly known as Daddy Freeze, made known his intention to sponsor the young boy’s tertiary education in any institution of his choice.
Obi Cubana kept his word and posted photos of the young man who received his letter of scholarship from the Cubana Group on Saturday (today).
Obi Cubana also announced on his Instagram page that Mr. and Mrs. Afuah, based in Canada, have hired Ekuma for a N100,000 monthly wage until he completes his studies.
The post read:
“And God has remembered Jerry!! @jerryluck_ God used Rocky @rockyemmyphotography to make that video! And God used @daddyfreeze to connect me and Jerry!
“He has collected his letter of scholarship from Cubana Group! Thank God for His uncommon Grace! Mr & Mrs Afuah @iam_hymans who are based in Canada, we ran into ourselves last night at Cubana Lagos, and he introduced himself and said he wanted to reach out to Jerry.
“We all met this afternoon here in Lagos. He has promised Jerry (and started paying immediately) a salary of 100k monthly from today till he is done with school!
