A former house-help turned educationist has taken to social media to appreciate his ex-boss who sponsored his education.
The Nigerian man, Zion Oshiobugie, took to his Facebook page to thank his former boss who took him in as a houseboy 14 years ago and ensured he got the education his biological children got as well.
Zion also revealed that education unlocked his mind and broke the chain of poverty in his life. Read what he wrote on Facebook below;
14 years ago, December 2004 to be precise I came to warri, Delta State to be the house boy (Domestic help) of @ndonyeka (Engr Nnamdi Onyeka & Dr Mrs Stephanie Onyeka).
D8 iffie estate, refinery road by Mega Hilton hotel was the house I stayed for 4 years. Engr Nnamdi never saw me as a second class citizen and as such he sent me to school instead of paying my parents for my service. I obtained OND from the petroleum training institute, Effurun while in his house as a domestic help. He payed my way through school. I stayed as his domestic help for 4 years 2004-2008.
Education unlocked my mind and broke the chains of poverty from my life hence my resolve to provide quality education for 20 million underprivileged children and orphans in my life time.
Long story short it’s 14 years down the line and I still remian grateful for all you did for me sir. Help say a word of appreciation to him.
I end with a quote from mother Theresa. ‘ Love is not patronizing and charity isn’t about pity, it is about love. Charity and love are the same — with charity you give love, so don’t just give money but reach out your hand instead’.
