Sports Minister, Solomon Dalung, pays school fees of a girl whose parents couldn’t

The parents of Kate Adamu can now heave a sigh of relief, after Nigeria’s sports minister, Solomon Dalung came to their aid, as they couldn’t pay the school fees of their ward.

The sports minister met the little girl, who was crying uncontrollably on the highway and alighted from his convoy. The JSS 1 student, went on to tell him some of the challenges they’re facing in their family. He dropped his contact with her, and while on his way to Jos today, he decided to check on her and that was how her school fees for a whole year was paid.

Here’s what was shared on Solomon Dalung’s Foundation page…..

‘I met little Kate Adamu about two weeks ago crying alone on a highway and helplessly trekking her way home, I alighted and asked what’s the matter with her, tearfully, Kate lamented her ordeals ranging from family travails to a misfortunes to befell her Dad, the little Kate hailed from Tangoron Village of Plateau State, a JSS one student of GSS Gwom of Riyom LG. We passionately spoke and I inquire after her parents which I reached out to same day, I dropped my contacts with her and while on my way to Jos earlier today, the humanness part of me told me to check on her which I did. In tears again, little Kate told me how her school fees hasn’t been paid, in my little way I demanded for her bills for the entire year and got it paid.

The story of little Kate Adamu represents the story of many little children out there, we can all be compassionate, we can all be kind to one another in our little ways, we can do so little kindness and be amazed how the world will be.

So I ask, what if we can all show some little kindness to even just but one person out there?’
