Lawyer and founder of HighFlyers Forum, First Baba Isa shared the touching story on Facebook on Tuesday, February 21. Read his post below:

Do you remember that little boy I met hawking in Ogoja about a month ago? He is now in school. One of the best private schools in Ogoja where he is given one full meal a day and the school bus also picks him up daily to go to schoo

l. He has been issued uniforms, textbooks and exercise books. Our little chap is on his way to greatness. I'm so excited!

When I met this little cutie hawking when he was suppose to be in school, my heart broke. The father initially resisted my initial move to help. We went past that and here we are. I'm not a millionaire but the little we have, we can share. We can't save the thousands of kids hawking on our streets but for this one, we have taken him off the streets. And by the grace of God he will stay off the streets and study up to the university.

We didn't do this alone. We just couldn't. When I wrote about this kid, many persons supported me with kind words and holy anger... Some did more. Ofem Ekapong Ofem, Okoi Eduson, Peter Offem Ubi, sent in money to support his schooling. Thank you my brothers. The little you sent went a long way. Ofem Ekapong Ofem has even pledged to send in a token every term for his school fees. God bless you sir.

I want to specially thank Faith Nwaozuzu, for being a main driver of this project. I salute you Ma. The kid is surely in safe hands.

We can be the change we want to see in the world.

Ladies and gentlemen, thanks for always being there... Oya let's prophesy what course this kid will end up reading in the university. You can wish him well by addressing him with the title of the profession you wish for him.

Humans with big hearts changing lives, one good deed at a time. A welcome development in a society where hate and scorn has been seen as the order of the day especially by those in diaspora. Keep up the good work, Nigerians!

I am certain one of two of the situations best explained how this kid wind up in this world:

either the parents got married because they were told they are of age or
they got together because they believed all their age mates are doing it.

I personally think it is time we start s national program on the need to why people should not start a family if they are not financially capable of taking care of a family.

I know many people would come after me but believe me there are a lot of kids like him in our country and there are still many couples starting family with no clear understanding of what their futures look like financially.

I know that money is not everything, but if adults make wise financial decisions in terms of when and how to start to start a family, then the chances of having kids that have to hawk to sustain the family is very low.

Kids should be kids and not taking up the responsibility of adults at a very young age.

See the boy pose, that is a posture of a professor of nuclear physics. From the eyes you can see the gleam of self assuredness and mischief two characteristics of a nutty professor
