Lagos university hawker gets scholarship, employment
Popular businessman Obi Cubana has offered Ekuma Jeremiah, the Lagos hawker seen in a viral video giving money to inmates in Nigerian Correctional Service bus in Ajah, Lagos State, university scholarship and employment in any of his companies.
The socialite disclosed this in an Instagram live with media personality Daddy Freeze.
He said: “I am offering him a lifetime opportunity, he has to go to school I think that is his ambition.
“I will see him through the university and if he wants to do Masters abroad , I will make sure he is comfortable while going to school because like I said earlier, that is the best we can do for him.”
Cubana added: “He will do University, anything he wants and then by God’s grace I know I will still be standing by the time he is done with school, he has a place in any of my organisations at the top level and if by God’s grace he finds a higher calling, you see there is nothing tied to this, I do not expect anything in return.
” I am not giving any conditions for this but if he chooses not to go back to school we can now hear what he wants to do and then we see him through.
“The most important thing is to know that he has in me a mentor, he has in me a life guide in me. I will make it easy for him through God so I believe that God will give me health and strength.
“The guy will go to any University of his choice in good condition not just to pay school fees. He has a heart of gold. This is the kind of people we need.
“I pray that people will do eye service to get my attention, let them do this kind of thing, in doing that you don’t know when you get used to it the world becomes a better place”.
Daddy Freeze, in another live Instagram broadcast, announced the gesture to Jeremiah.
Jeremiah said: “I want to thank God for everything, he is God and he is God alone. It is only God who can do it. Just like I have always done to myself and it is my routine, if I wake up every morning I always pray to God and I shall continue to thank him. It is only God that has brought me this far. May his name be highly uplifted I praise his name.”
