A man identified as Tunde Onakoya has taken to the digital space to narrate how he won a grant he didn’t apply for.
The Nigerian man is having a company dubbed “Chess In Slums Africa” as it won a grant which he didn’t even apply for.
His company’s vision is all about helping kids living in the slums by taking them off the street and teaching them how to play the chess game.
They make sure they enroll them in chess tournaments across Africa after helping them to learn how to play the game.
Taking to social media, he indicated that his company was nominated by someone he doesn’t know for a Price Waterhouse Coopers and despite the voting process they won it.
In his words, “Apparently, someone nominated us for @PwC_Nigeria’s annual charity grant and there was even a voting phase that we won.
I didn’t even know all of this was going on till I got a call two days ago to come pick up a million naira [Ghc 14,829.81] cheque at Landmark towers this morning
For everyone who continue to speak for us even in rooms where we’re absent, thank you.”
