Nigeria isn't where we want it to be just yet, but it would be irresponsible to hand the task of loving your neighbour and lending a helping hand to those in need also to the federal government.
Deji "used" to ask for alms at my busstop alongside other teenagers. After long weeks of ( tears, almost giving up, asking the question " who sent you Irene", ) I paid a visit to the Commissioner of Education in Lagos State Folasade Adefisayo ( very gracious woman ) as I really wanted to reintegrate him back in school.
He is off the street and back in school now. I particularly thank all my amazing friends who encouraged me through this entire process as well as #lagosstate staff in the education system who welcomed him with open arms.
I am proud of you.
To my mother, sister and friend Oprah Winfrey Thank you for leading me right.
