“Part of the money made then, I added to my school fees. Today, God is blessing me so I have come back to say thank you to God and also give back to the people

“There are people out there that are suffering seriously. With the little I have given, those selling water should be able to go back to buy enough bags of purewater, sell and make more gains. Those selling Minerals will be able to buy more crates of minerals, sell and make more gains, same thing goes to those selling corns among others

“This is my little way of putting smiles on the faces of the people. I want to advice the well-to-do individuals out there to please, show love to the people so that we can have a better society

“I am doing this from my heart, not for anything. I just want the people to know that whatever they are passing through today, tomorrow will always be better”, he added.
