Dayo Israel, one of the leading Chairmanship candidate under the All Progressives Congress, APC, today, Wednesday, October 26, 2016, surprised a homeless family by renting and furnishing a flat for them.
According to Dayo, he discovered the difficulties faced by the family when he met the man during the free breast and cervical cancer screening he organized in Ilaje, Otumara community.
In his words “I am giving this man a new 2 bedroom flat today in Mainland today. I met him during my free breast and cervical cancer test in Ilaje Otumara and he told me about his family. I went to visit his pregnant wife who was living on a passage because they have been moved out of their room.”
Dayo added that “his first daughter was raped and kidnapped, his 2nd daughter has a hole in the heart and his pregnant wife sleeps in a passage. I went to see him yesterday in this new place they just paid N36000 for, it’s still shanty.”
“But God his about to turn his story around. I just paid about a million naira for a new flat with support from my partners and donors. Furnishing of the apartment will also be done and we are working to establish him in business. This is part of the fresh start we are promising Mainland,” he said.
Speaking on the maintenance of the new apartment by the man, Dayo disclosed that “we provided the family some cash for food stuff and other domestics for the months. A sister of mine has offered to pay for the other year and we are also financing his fish business and furnishing his house. His wife is due in a few days and excited she will give birth in a new house.”
