The young man from Nigeria who gained widespread fame earlier this year for helping prisoners in a van while hawking goods on the streets has appreciated the people who changed his life.
When a video of the once-famous hawker whose name is Jeremiah Iziogo giving money to prisoners being driven by the Correctional Service appeared online, his gesture touched the hearts of Nigerians and netizens.
Obi Cubana, a Nigerian multibillionaire businessman, expressed interest in Jeremiah and offered him a scholarship to continue his education as well as a job offer after graduation.
The young man has used social media to remember the one-year anniversary of the day he left school to support himself by hawking, months after enrolling in school.
He claimed that all hope had been lost when he went to Lagos on December 12 of last year, but the video of his wonderful deed changed his life.
Jeremiah recalled his life in Lagos and how he believed by now he would have found a store or a low-paying job, but God had other ideas and he ended up going back to school.
He expressed gratitude to Daddy Freeze, Obi Cubana, and all the other Nigerians who helped him leave the streets.
He thanked Obi Cubana, Daddy Freeze, and every other Nigerian that made it possible for him to leave the streets.
Jeremiah wrote; ”I left school for Lagos this day last year when all hope was lost 😞 and God intervened and #gracefoundme🙏. Praise God. When I dropped out of school i thought by now I will either have gotten a shop of my own or get a menial job but God had it otherwise and I was sent back to school by well meaning Nigerians and that was Grace 🙏.
