A Patriotic Nigerian return Prof. Aroye bag

“‘On my way from Anyigba to Abuja by commercial transport, I had to alight at Giri junction, to pick a cab that was to link me with another cab to my destination. I had a heavy suitcase and a bag. 


When we got to Lugbe, the cab driver hurriedly dropped me off when he saw a cab going to my final destination. In the process of dragging the heavy suitcase, and in the usually chaotic motor park, I forgot to pick my bag.


As I approached the hotel in Jabi, now feeling relaxed, I remembered my bag which contained the following items:


1. Laptop

2. A bundle of N50,000, and a cheque

3. A pair of golden earrings

4. My International Passport

5. Power bank, ATM cards, Driver’s license, etc.


I went back to Giri junction to report to the NURTW officials. That was when I discovered that many drivers operated as freelancers and might not be traceable. I became desperate.


I exchanged contact numbers with the NURTW official and went back to the hotel. I couldn’t really concentrate on the assignment I came to Abuja for.


I’d not informed my husband. The cab driver searched my bag, extracted my husband’s mobile number from my driver’s license and called him.


My husband mistook him for a fraudster and told him off. I later informed my husband and he gave me the driver’s number. I called him. Alas! He had my bag. He had even attempted to reach me on Facebook.


I got my colleagues Clara and Moses to speak Hausa with him and we arranged to meet at the hotel two days later, when he returned from a trip. He emerged at the hotel with the bag and the contents intact!


Despite the rot, decadence and economic hardship in our land, there still exist millions of people like Abubakar Hassan (08027164473)with good morals. Please appreciate him with me”‘.

Efosa Imasuen support 20 Pupils with school fees and writing materials

While November ended my Pet-Project #EfosaImasuenBackToSchoolProject for children in the #AMAC-BWARI Federal Constituency visited L.E.A Mpape.

We supported 20-Pupils with School-fees gave them lunch, writing materials and also delivered a solid moral support speech to encourage them to remain in school against all odds and strive to attain the objectives of being sent to school by their parents.

The kids and their teachers were happy to receive us, 5 Pupils amongst them were to be sent home for not being able to pay their school fees but our aid came timely and enabled them to remain in school and write their exams.

The Head Teacher brought to our notice the dilapidated structures the pupils schooled in I must confess at that point tears rushed out of my eyes as I was so disappointed and fell into despair to see that in the FCT Abuja children sat on battered floors in classroom with broken roofs, no windows, no doors and yet they were still determined to learn under such conditions.

Secondly the school authority also brought to my attention their ICT Unit which was runned by a petrol generator but everything equipment in there needed repair or maintenance I offered to assist with one of the numerous problems they showed me and the wise Head Teacher (may God continue bless her wisdom) showed me a photocopier machine and told me that the children would be writing exams in the coming week and they would not be able to duplicate Question papers and answer sheets thus the photocopier repair was of utmost importance at that moment.

Thanks God I had the capacity to help them fix the photocopier machine by his grace my team would come back and do more as God can use us to do.
