However, the tweet got to Mallam Nasir El-rufai the Kaduna State Governor and he had this to say: Where is this industrious boy? How old is he? Kindly bring him to me in Kaduna.

This is a typical example of destiny! No matter what your situation is today, never give up on the struggle and hustle. One day your hustle go pay or will be discovered and rewarded for your hard work.
According to the Governor, we already have such policy in Kaduna State that has seen our primary school enrollment nearly double in 3 years, taking in nearly 1 million children into schools. And we sacked over 20,000 incompetent teachers to improve quality, this case is just exceptional. We have a free, 9-year compulsory basic education program in our state, so every child is eligible. Girls are subject to free, compulsory 12-year secondary education in the state. This case is special because he is particularly proud and industrious.
