One of Nigeria notable female golfer, Maryanne Udoka, has joined good willing Nigerians to help ease the pressure of sustenance caused by the lockdown directive as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Akwa-Ibom based golfer, who is a widow decided to do giveaway in a very modest manner far away from the public praise and acknowledgement.
In an interview with our correspondent, Maryanne, who is a recipient of the best net and female drive award at the Udom Emmanuel victory tournament spoke humbly about her kind gesture.
“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” .
The mother of one also admonish Nigerians to adhere strictly to the guidelines of World Health Organisation to avoid community transmission of the Coronavirus Pandemic.
