The wife of the Governor of Osun state, Mrs Kafayat Oyetola, through her initiative, Ileri Oluwa Development Initiative, has taken over the matter of a Nigerian man, Benjamin Sesan Ojo, a homeless man Nigerian man in Trinidad and Tobago and his six-year-old daughter, who requires help to come back home.
Sesan Ojo from Ilesa in Osun state has been living in Trinidad and Tobago for twelve years and he is homeless and had been sick for three years without a job or means of coming back home, having lost contact with his family for long.
Mrs Oyetola heard about the man through a viral video and being a humanitarian that had been helping the homeless and psychotic people on the street for over 15 years, she was moved by his plight and decided to help.
The man who lost his wife a year ago cannot do anything for himself at present and is a burden to many people. According to him, “I need help to get home,
I don’t have work, I need help to survive till I go back to Nigeria. I am a burden to everybody. I went to Nigeria embassy to ask for help to come home but they said they cannot help me, they just gave me money to feed for a week but after that I couldn’t see them again,” he stated in the video.
