Kind hearted Nigerians bless the Uyo doughnut seller with lots of money.
This is good news.
A young activist and lawyer, Inibehe Effiong has rallied round and raised funds for the hardworking man, Mr. Lawrence-White Udoka who became an internet sensation because of his exceptional dressing style while hawking doughnut in Akwa Ibom state. The man's story which trended last December attracted attention from well meaning Nigerians
Mr Effiong shared photos after meeting the man on Facebook and wrote:
"Today, I met with Mr. Lawrence-White Udoka, the doughnut seller and 200 level Pol. Science Education student of University of Uyo who became a national celebrity and media sensation after I posted his photos on social media.
By God's grace, the sum of N107,000.00 (One Hundred and Seven Thousand Naira) was realised from my funds raising campaign to assist his business. Recall that I promised to disclose the sum realized. He has used the money to rent a shop where people can sit and patronize his goods.
Mr. Lawrence-White has expressed his gratitude to everyone who contributed and those that patronize him daily."
