Obi Cubana Offers Viral Lagos Hawker Scholarship, Employment

Obi Cubana, the Nigerian socialite, has promised Ekuma Jeremiah, the Lagos hawker who went viral for giving inmates money, a scholarship and employment.

Jeremiah became a viral sensation recently after his generous act caught the attention of many Nigerians.

In an Instagram live session with Daddy Freeze, the media personality, on Saturday, the entrepreneur said Jeremiah’s action is worthy of emulation.

The 46-year-old offered to give the hawker a “lifetime opportunity” and also mentor him to become a better person.

“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,” he said.

“He will go to 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. I will make it easy for him through God so I believe that God will give me health and strength.”

The socialite said the world will become a better place if people can replicate the gesture displayed by the hawker.

“The guy will go to any university of his choice in good condition not just to pay school fees. He has a heart of God. This is the kind of people we need,” he added.

“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.”
