So a year ago a male twitter user Segun by name solicited for funds for his education in a post outlined down…
Am victor by name, Male, 21.Lost my dad when I was just 6.Mom didn’t wanted to remarry, but grandma won’t let her; she says she can’t have just one kid.She remarried and gave birth to her second born when I was 11. She gave birth to two more kids.We were 4 now Altogether. But she and my step-dad had frequent fights.They broke up and live separately My mom with the kids step-dad not helping in any way,so she’s literally a single mother of four kids and she’s just a primary school teacher. So we all live through thick and thin.But the fact that am much more older than my siblings made her to care less about me ( I cannot blame her for that, it’s understandable) So after my secondary schooling I decided not to burden her with my everything. I graduated from secondary school in the year 2014.I went out to search for jobs Find few unsuitable jobs, did them for a while.Later came across a pharmacy, I was employed. After a year…Mom said won’t I go to Tertiary institution?I said yes, I won’t go.She insisted , I ask her where we gonna get the funds she said she will get a loan, that I must go to school..So from my savings I got jamb form( year 2015) Requested time off from work to register for jamb, write jamb, and post utme also. I wrote jamb and passed, passed post utme too, but I wasn’t admitted.I tried again the following year.Same fate! Tried again the following year (2017) Passed and got admitted for Medicine i resigned from work Mom applied for loan in more than three places,none was given to her, why? State government had bans on loans (if you are in Ogun state; you’ll know this to be true) She tried her best Ultimatum for acceptance fee elapsed.My Admission was withdrew! I gave up on school…..Wanted to be occupied again, reapplied for the job I resigned from Was told my post had been filled I wasn’t employed Ha! God why?I searched and searched for job some were too far. I started pick up on petty jobs like “labourer”and “joinman” for artisans. Mom married another man again She took in my three siblings with her They are doing good, so to speak.Have been living alone since then; 8 months now.So the reality of life begin to dawn on me, I started thinking about my future, Like I really don’t have something tangible doing. I feel wretched i feel doomed . I ask myself where I had it wrong so this last few weeks hasn’t been easy coz I am really sick and can’t take up on my petty jobs. So no money to feed not to talk of buying drugs .Thought of suicide flows in, but I decided to cry out first.
After the post last year, two twitter users, @thepamilerin and @dipo_smart promised to take care of his education till he graduates if he took another jamb. Fast forward to this year’s release of jamb results, Segun had a score of 167 and he became suicidal. Took sniper into his body system but thankfully according to his proposed sponsor he’s responding to medications in the hospital.
All this happened evening of May 12th and he’s currently responding as at 12am of May 13th.
