How Nigerians Helped Abandoned Mother Of Late Football Legend Rashidi Yekini


Late Rashidi Yekini remains Super Eagles's highest goal-scorer with 37 goals in 58 appearances (1984 - 1998). He will be remembered forever for scoring .
Nigeria's first FIFA World Cup goal in Dallas, USA, during the match against Bulgaria on June 21, 1994

His mother, Alhaja Sikiratu Yekini, lost all the support and was abandoned. A Good Samaritan gave the aged lady some money to maintain her small business, but it was barely enough for her to survive.

Some meaningful Nigerians heard this message, pitied the woman and raised funds for her! A bank account was opened on her behalf, and goods were bought for her mini store. Cash was also handed over to her to enable Alhaja Sikiratu Yekini attend to little errands.

A group of Good Samaritans, who were touched by the current status of the mother of the late former Nigerian football star Rashidi Yekini, have raised the sum of N290,000 for the octogenarian in less than 48 hours.

Suraj Tunji Oyewale, a successful chattered accountant based from Lagos, championed a course on his Facebook page for some monetary contribution for Mama Sikiratu Yekini after reading NAIJ.com's previous reports on what the woman has been going through.

"I want to thank all the people who put their hands in their pockets to help me, and I pray that God will be with you all," Mama Sikiratu said amidst tears to NAIJ.com upon receiving the donation.

On his own part, Suraj Tunji Oyewale promised to put Mama Sikiratu Yekini on a monthly pay for the next one year and, therefore, applauded all the people who stood by him to raise funds.

Good job to our own nairaland Jarus. He was responsible for putting smiles on Mama Yekini's face along side some of his Facebook friends by contributing financially for her.

God bless you Jarus.


Lalasticlala, let's acknowledge one of our own.

Nice one. It is really good to structure our finances so that after one's demise, his/her dependants will have something to fall back on.

A little drop of water makes a mighty ocean.. A little drop on a particular spot on a stone/rock wears the stone/rock away..

Let's give a helping hand to those in need no matter how little it may seem, it'll go a really long way in aiding them in whatever situation they're in..

A little advice, a little assistance doesn't really hurt you but it's duly appreciated by those it's done for

So Nairalanders rise up and give a helping hand to someone very close to you today and for the rest of your life
