REPORTER'S DIARY:GISTMASTER DONATES THOUSANDS OF MATERIALS TO TWO SCHOOLS TODAY ON BEHALF OF MUTIU LESHI AND FRIENDS (USA)

By Niyi Tabiti
Chief Reporter

This morning happens to be one of my happiest days in life because I was able to fufill a mission. Remember, I wrote on this blog sometime ago that a group of young Nigerians living in the United States of America sent thousands of school items that would help less priviledged pupils in our public schools.
Due to some circumstances beyond control,we couldnt do it much earlier, we re-scheduled the presentation and finally, it was done this morning.
I thank Mutiu Leshi and friends who thought it fit to provide for the needs of these kids without askig for anything. I was very happy because it was a positive impact.
Two schools that benefitted from the materials this morning are African Church Primary School, Meiran, Ijaiye, Lagos and Community Primary School, Meiran, Ijaiye, Lagos.
You will be moved to tears when you see some of the pupils. On a monday morning, you see kids wearing dirty and torn uniform. Some of them came to school bare footed. Obviously, you can read on their faces that some of them are hungry.
There are classes where you see five or sex pupils stuggling to manage the same desk. When we got to one of the classes where the materials were distributed. Three most brilliant pupils were called out to shake hands
and receive special gifts. Two of them wore rubber slippers while one of them came to school bare footed in this age!

  11. Daaaaang, Niyi you look like a swagger in that suit. Well done on such a good job. God knows we need people like you in that country. It's so sad seeing that these kids can't even afford to buy school sandals. May God continue to bless you and fulfil your desires.
