Let education be free!

21 October 2014, 14:17

Education is the bed rock of a country's development therefore every child possesses the natural right to education and it should be what we should have in Nigeria but it is obvious that the Nigerian child does not have access to education because of the reason of poor financial status, that is why one man,one great man, some people call him the great philanthropist, some people call him big daddy, some say he is it the one we have been waiting for, indeed they are all right.

He is the senior advocate of the masses who really passed through hardship and now rich has said yes the child who is less privileged must go to school,he founded a foundation called the Rochas foundation, building school and enrolling the less privileged,picking children from the streets the one with no food to eat, a foundation where every child counts an giving without counting the cost of returns,his name is Owelle Anayo Rochas Okoroocha. If you think its not true, I am a witness and a beneficiary'. I have never heard of Rochas until I entered Rochas Foundation College, but now I know him very well, he is my father, I have been to his house a lot and in the Imo state government house and even now that I am in the university, he still pays my school fees. I love him, he has put smile on my face, given me hope.

Support him Nigeria!
