Fate shone on one Mallam Kabiru, a crippled roadside beggar, as Anambra born philanthropist, Engr. Johnbosco Onunkwo fulfilled his promise he made to him a month ago of a wheelchair.
This is coming on the heels of an entrepreneurial programme for young people tagged “The Conversation 2” organized by his foundation where over 3000 youths were in attendance.
It would be recalled that Engr. Onunkwo sometime in the previous month gifted a crippled beggar a wheelchair at the popular Aroma junction axis in the Awka capital territory of the state.
The wheelchair was a remnant from his foundation’s empowerment programme. Engr. Onunkwo promised Kabiru who was present at the gift presentation to his colleague that he would get his very soon. READ HERE
Mr. Kabiru was visibly elated as the young philanthropist kept to his words. Presenting the gift to him, Engr. Onunkwo popularly known as “Onwa” averred that kindness should be encouraged among people irrespective of tribe or religious affiliations.
Speaking to this reporter in pidgin English, the beneficiary expressed gratitude to Engr. Onunkwo for his benevolence. In his words, “I thank Oga very very much for the wheelchair. Oga promised to buy me wheelchair after giving my brother last month. I am very very happy about this”.
A bystander who preferred anonymity commended Engr. Onunkwo describing him as a detribalized Nigerian and an uncommon politician who has remained true to his words. According to him, “Onunkwo is not among the richest in Anambra but his kindness and philanthropy has continued to endear him to the people”.
