Last month news went viral that a 9 year old girl named Nicole Eniiyi Benson had donated her lunch money savings to the Buhari Presidential Campaign. The little girl also penned an open letter to Governor Fashola and the APC about why she is supporting the former military ruler in the upcoming elections. You can read the widely published letter below.
Yesterday (March 19), little Nicole who is a student of Greensprings School, Lekki met General Muhammadu Buhari, Governor of Lagos – Babatunde Fashola, APC Gubernetorial Candidate for Lagos – Akinwunmi Ambode, Former Governor – Bola Tinubu at a Town Hall meeting with Nigerian women, where she officially made her N6,000 donation to him.
Dear APC and Governor Fashola,
My name is Nicole Benson. I am 9 years old. The name of my school is Greensprings School lekki campus and I am in year 4 peters. I want to be a doctor when I grow up so that I can take care of people who are sick and dying because they take care of me when I am sick.
Governor fashola and apc I was listening to the radio on my way to school today and I heard that we can send money to you to help you to win the election. My mummy said that I can donate from N100 so that we can help APC to raise the money to win the election and remove president goodluck jonathan so that mr buhari and professor osinbajo can be the new president and assistant president and be able to help nigeria to fight the boko haram people who are killing innocent children and also bring back the chibok girls so that their mummies and daddies can be happy.
Governor Fashola and APC, please don’t you think that N100 is too small? I have the new N100 notes but I am sorry I will not be able to give it to you because I only have one and I want to keep it in my wallet. But I have n5785 that I saved from my lunch money and pocket money and toothfairy money. I know it’s my mummy giving the toothfairy the money to give me because I found my tooth in her wallet last year. and I want to give you all my money that I saved so that you can win in February. I have N5785 naira and also N8 but the N8 is in coins and it’s only in Shoprite that they gave me so I want to go and spend it there. I wanted to buy my inhaler disk but my daddy has bought another new one for me. I have given my mummy the money and she put it on her card to pay it on your website and she paid it Â now. I wish I could get more money for you but that will be next week when I get more lunch money from my daddy and toothfairy can’t give me any more money because all my teeth have all grown back. I can still save more money for you and give you in February.
Please help me give some of the money to mr ambode too so that he can win mr jimmy agbaje. I like mr ambode very much.
I wish you goodluck not goodluck jonathan but best of luck and please you can call my mummy’s number if you need me to send the money I want to save for you.But you will have to give me some time to save it.
Please say hello to mr ambode mr buhari and professor osinbajo for me.
Nicole Eniiyi Benson
Nicole is such a cutie! I seriously pray Nigeria will be better for her and her generation!
