GoodMorning Godwin Emefiele
Your son has enough food to eat, I ate just once yesterday
Your son is sleeping in his room, I’m begging my landlord not to throw my things out
Your son has pocket money, I have pocket drought
Supporting #EndSARS isn’t a crime, unfreeze my accounts
At this stage I’d be lying if I said I don’t need help. I’d appreciate anything I can get from anybody. Nothing is too small. It will go a long way to help me clear out some debts incurred over the last 3 weeks and also sustain myself for the next 3 months. Please. God bless you
