A Nigerian couple have offered to fund the education of a primary school girl, Wasilat Bashiru, who cried at her graduation. It was reported days ago that an 11-year-old Head girl of God’s Light Group of Schools, Oyo town, Oyo state broke down in tears because her parents were unable to attend her graduation ceremony. After hearing her story, a Nigerian woman and her husband took pity on the little girl and promised to sponsor her through school.

The woman, Oluwafunmi made this known via Twitter, as she noted that Wasilat deserves an opportunity to shine bright.

She tweeted: “Myself and my hubby @DeleMotors will take over funding her education. She deserves to have a brilliant future. Kayode pls send me a dm lets get the ball roll!! We rise by lifting other.”
It may be recalled that the head girl broke down in tears while delivering her farewell speech because her parents were unable to attend the ceremony.

According to Twitter @Oluwakayodey_, who was the MC at the event, Wasilat is on the verge of stopping school because her parents are poor, which is also the main reason they were nowhere to be found on her graduation day.

Her father currently has no job while the mum is a petty trader and they are barely able to survive.

The MC revealed that the school handled some of the finances including the graduation gown Wasilat was wearing. The smart 11-year-old girl who is now a graduate of God’s Light Group of Schools, Oyo town, Oyo state, took first position in class and passed every subject with flying colours.

@Oluwakayodey_ made an appeal to well-meaning persons to come to the girl’s aid as she has no one to turn to.

Sharing the video of Wasilat crying, he wrote: “Bashiru Wasilat, the Head Girl of God’s Light Group of Schools, Oyo town is on the verge of dropping out. I was invited as Mc in the graduation ceremony when I heard about the story of the 11 years old girl.

Wasilat was weeping when she was giving her farewell speech. None of her parents showed up at the party due to lack of money. Her dad is jobless and her mom is a ‘struggling’ trader. It was the school that funded some of her things, including the graduation gown.”

Nice one madam,we need to cultivate the habit of love and helping hands to another so that poverty can reduce,the reason most people are still poor because they have no one to help them even when they showcase thier talent
