Ekuma Jeremiah

Hotel magnate, Obi Iyorchia, has offered university scholarship and job to Ekuma Jeremiah, a Lagos hawker who had passion on prisoners recently.

Mr Jeremiah was recently seen in a viral video clip sharing money to prisoners conveyed in a correctional vehicle while carrying on his head, a crate of bottled water, which he hawks.

In another clip, when asked the reason behind the care, he explained that he decided to have pity on them because they don’t have the liberty he has. His deed led Nigerians to contribute over N300,000 to him.

In an Instagram live with media personality, Ifedayo Olarinde, popularly known as Daddy Freeze, Mr Iyorchia whose nickname is Obi Cubana promised to sponsor the university education of the hawker who will thereafter be employed in one of his establishments.

Mr Cubana said should Jeremiah reject the offers, he will be listened to and be supported in whatever he decides to do.

“I am offering him a lifetime opportunity, he has to go to school I think that is his ambition,” the socialite said. “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 will do 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 in me. I will make it easy for him through God so I believe that God will give me health and strength.

“The guy will go to any University of his choice in good condition not just to pay school fees. He has a heart of gold. This is the kind of people we need.

“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,” he added.
