Nollywood Actor Alex Ekubo shared a screenshot of a mail he got from someone begging him for tuition fee.
The help seeker claimed to have been offered admission to study in Australia but is unable to fund it.
In the mail, the mendicant wrote:
“Good evening sir, Please sir I was offered admission in Australia and I’m unable to pay the fees. My mum has been bake to raise #500,000 out of N8million and I list my dad since I was a kid.
“Sir just help me with anything. I would be glad if you can do do. Thanks.”
The actor who found the request funny then went on Instagram for beggars to be considerate while at it.
He wrote: “Father Lord you that parted the Red sea, & led the Israelites out of danger, pls give me this money people think I have. The Heart is willing but the bank akant is weak.
“See this bros is asking small me to sponsor him to study “in the abroad” a whooooooole Australia. Kai bros you get mind, you no even talk Unilag or Lasu or even our backyard Cotonou.
“There is even no direct flight to Australia from Nigeria, & you’re asking me to raise 7.5 MILLION NAIRA. Dear Nigerians pleases if you are begging for help please beg with conscience & fear of God.
“both my younger ones are studying in Nigeria here, me that studied in UniCal I’m not mad, & I did not die.
