A boy known as Ashamu Lekan, whose hope in life dimmed because his parents died has called for help so that he could return to school. His cry for assistance was brought to notice via Twitter by a man with the handle @AnatuGreen.
@AnatuGreen said he met the young boy at a mechanic shop where the boy is an apprentice after he dropped out of school. According to him, the boy said he is willing to go back to school if he gets help. The man attached two photos of the boy wielding a spanner beside a tricycle.
The boy said he could combine school with his mechanic apprenticeship. When he was asked if his boss will be open to him combining school with his work, the boy said there will not be any problem with that, adding that when he is done with the school day, he could always resume at the shop.

@AnatuGreen is already working on raising funds for him. He said the mission is to put N5 million in an education trust fund so he does not have to worry about fees for years.
