It was further gathered that the video which elicits sympathy drew the attention of popular comedian, AY and other notable celebrities including Mr Jollof, all offering to give her scholarship as well as changing her school in the coming term.
Touched by the video, the Sapele Council Chairman on Friday led top management of the council to visit the girl’s parents and the school where she was offered some cash amount of money.
Accompanied on the visit by Leader of Sapele Legislatives Arm, Hon Adibor Igho, Majority Leader of the Legislatives Arm, Hon Venture Kagbude, Hon. John Tebu and Chief Inspector of Education, Sapele LGA, Mrs Patience Ishegbe, Chief Inoaghan immediately further announced the council offer of a scholarship.
The delegation met with her parents, Mr & Mrs Godwin Adegor, teachers and the headmistress of the School where Miss Success was reportedly sent home.
He described the pupil as a lucky saying that the council’s secretary would officially write to the parents on the award of the scholarship.
