Celebrities and other well-meaning Nigerians have come to the aid of the young girl who went viral yesterday after complaining bitterly about being sent home from school because her parents couldn't pay her school fees.
Success, a primary school pupil, was recorded by her neighbour who saw her trekking after she was sent home by the school management.
In many Nigerian private schools, children are usually sent home or flogged by the school authorities in a bid to send a message to parents who are yet to pay or complete payment of school fees.
While many kids wouldn’t mind being sent home, Success preferred to be flogged just to stay in school.
The young girl’s enthusiasm for learning is what has endeared many Nigerians to her.
After the video went viral, a host of top Nigerian celebrities reached out to the family of the girl to support her education with cash, while Instagram comedian turned politician, Mr. Jellof, visited the family.
The Delta based comedian has now promised to foot the bill of Success' education up to university level. He also promised to change the little girl’s school after her exams this term.
Ayo Makun, popularly known as AY, shared an audio of him speaking to the girl’s mother and of Success praying for him after he pledged to support her education.
The KBK Foundation also reached out and offered her scholarship up to secondary school level.
Actor, Jim Iyke, and Abuja big boy, Charles Okpaleke, have also requested for the contact of the girl’s family so that they can support her.
Meanwhile, the deplorable state of the said school that Success was sent home from has become the target of criticism, as it has found its way to cyberspace.
