Single Mother Who Hawked on Streets to Sponsor Herself Celebrates As She Graduates With First Class

Mother Priscilla Akwagu, a 32-year-old single mother who sponsored herself through school with her small business and celebrates as she graduated with a first-class despite all the difficulties.
The story of Priscilla Akwagu, a single mother is a source of inspiration. Priscilla graduated with a First class while combining her small ‘Bofrot’ business to see herself through school.

“I lived with my brother in Kumasi. My mum was somewhere. So I started hawking in Kumasi. I used to sell sugarcane and worked at a chop bar. Sometimes, the left over is what my brother and I take for support. I used to wash the utensils and do the cleaning at the chop bar. “My mum used to sell the ‘bofrot’ and she had debts to settle.

So, I thought it was wise to come and take over from her and clear the debts. The business was lucrative and that helped me settle her debts. “I completed JHS in 2007. I got pregnant with my first daughter after school. I was 17 years at the time. So after I delivered, I needed to take care of her. So in 2012, when she was three, I decided to go back to school.

I didn’t know what school to attend because I had a child. “So, I went to Atebubu and spoke to a man who led me to the headmistress for admission. She was reluctant because girls like me always ended up getting pregnant again. But later, she agreed and admitted me into the school. I just didn’t know how to plan for school and work.

“My campus was very far from here.

It was in the Central Region, Ajumako. A colleague of mine takes over the business when I am not around. I come back home twice to sell. “If I am to return to campus, I will sell and join the night bus. I’ll be tired when I get to school so I don’t even go for class for about two weeks until I gain strength,” she said.
Despite the challenges that come with being a single mother and her tedious and time-consuming business, she didn’t quit. In a recent post on Facebook group Tell it all, she revealed that she has gone back to hawking.

In what appears to be a disheartening turn of events, Nigerians are expressing their disappointment as the young election hero, whose viral video of chasing Peter Obi’s convoy captivated the nation, has allegedly been left empty-handed despite grand promises made during the presidential election campaign.

These assurances were intended to recognize and appreciate his bold act of running after the convoy of Peter Obi, the former vice-presidential candidate, in a fervent display of support.

However, five months have elapsed since the general elections took place, and the promised rewards have failed to materialize, leaving the young election hero disillusioned and causing Nigerians to voice their grievances.

Social media platforms have been inundated with expressions of frustration, highlighting the broken trust between politicians and the electorate.
