Nigerian Man Becomes A US Citizen 20 Years After His Parents Borrowed $1500 To Send Him Abroad

A Nigerian man, identified as Ayo Philips, has officially become a US citizen years after his parents made a huge sacrifice to send him abroad.

Mr. Ayo took to Twitter to share his inspiring story. According to him, his parents used their property as collateral to get $1500 (N571,875.00) loan for his one-way ticket to America.

20 years later, his life has changed for good as he is now a part-owner of a big business in America with an opportunity to make his parent’s sacrifice their greatest investment of all time.

Decades after his migration to God’s own country, Mr. Ayo is now a US citizen and has a beautiful family.

Sharing photos of himself and his family outside the US immigration building, he wrote,

“At 2:23pm CT today, I became an American
20 yrs ago, my parents took out a $1500 loan guaranteed by their possessions to get me on a 1-way flight here
Today, I am part-owner of a business with an opportunity to make that their greatest investment
That’s the magic of America.”
