The governor took to his twitter page – @elrufai to announce that he was going to sponsor Usman’s education to the highest level after one Muhd El-Bonga Ibrahim – @el_bonga shared a photo of the little boy on his Twitter page and explained how he repairs shoes and has nobody to sponsor his education.
Ibrahim wrote on his page:
Where is this industrious boy? How old is he? Kindly bring him to me in Kaduna. I will sponsor him to attend a boarding primary school and upon completion until he graduates from university by the Grace of God. @Dattijo @el bonga
Well, his kind gesture, obviously did not go down well as many Nigerians felt he should have started off with the boys on the streets of Kaduna, while others noted that he should improve the educational sector in his state.
