A man known as Michael Showunmi demonstrated a sincere act of compassion as he paid the school fees of two children who were unable to afford to do so.
When he showed up at their school and paid their school fees, the math teacher turned banker surprised the two girls.
Michael said he had visited his primary school and told the principal that he wanted to fund the school fees of two challenged pupils, sharing the story on Linkedln.
It was then that Timi and Fridause, two students who had struggled to afford their school fees and pay their bills, came in contact with him.
I went to my primary school … I told the principal I want to help two students with school fees.
They brought two students – Timi and Fridause. According to the Principal, Fridause has been out of school for 4weeks due to school fees. She started coming the same week I came . Timi had challenges with school fees due to his father’s decease.
The humanitarian who runs a non-governmental organisation named Raising Stars Africa, stated it is a thing of joy for him being the reason why people smiled.
Nigerians were full of praise for him, while some others spoke on emulating his gesture
