“I have been in the shoe of being very poor that I couldn’t afford common 1,000 to pay my way to Port Harcourt to write exams.

That was when I graduated from the university and finished my NYSC. I suffered so much that I went to beg a politician for the money but he refused and gave me the condition that I have to be his girlfriend

I got angry and went to meet a sister from the church that gave me the money.

I didn’t give because I had but because I know what it means to be poor.

In her response to why she didn’t make it public , she said , ‘’ I didn’t want the public to know the people I was giving the money to and that was the reason I made a post on my facebook page that widows , widowers and single parents should go through my inbox and submit their account details” .
