Billionaire businessman, Obinna Iyiegbu, also known as Obi Cubana, has offered Ekuma Jeremiah, the Lagos hawker seen in a viral video giving money to prisoners, a university scholarship and an employment.
An Instagram user named Ojo Emmanuel, had captured the moment a water seller gave over 70 percent of his money to the prison inmates who were being transported in a Nigerian Correctional Service bus along Ajah area of Lagos state.
Impressed by this gesture, Obi Cubana while speaking in a Instagram live interview with media personality Daddy Freeze, promised to mentor the young man.
Obi Cubana said in the interview that he will offer a scholarship to the young hawker to study. He also noted that the young man will have a place at any level in his organization.
The billionaire businessman said “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 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.”
