Africans have risen up for the cause of Ashamu Lekan whose video went viral days ago after he was filmed repairing a tricycle.
In the said clip, the boy who turned mechanic and dropped out of school said if he had a helper, he would like to continue his education.
Days after, a good Samaritan with the Twitter handle @AnatuGreen coordinated donations from willing citizens so the young kid can live his dream.
On Thursday, December 3, @AnatuGreen said with the help of many, Lekan has resumed at BrainField School.
The man added that it would be the first time in five years that the young boy would be stepping foot into a school.
Sharing photos on Twitter, the man posed with the kid and one other unnamed person as they sat in an office of the school Lekan will be attending.
