ITREALMS ... making leadership SENSE with digital news!

Reprieve is on the way for the 300-level University of Lagos (UNILAG) undergraduate, Ms Aminat Ajikobi, whose video went viral, showcasing her residence in a swampy, flooded room apartment, at a Lagos suburb for over 10 years, reports ITREALMS.

This is coming as the Muslim Mercy Aid and Relief International Foundation (MMARIF) has volunteered to support her with the sum of N500,000 obviously to seek, get new and better abode.

According to an official of the foundation, identified as Engr. Zaid Ibrahim, “The Muslim Mercy Aid and Relief International Foundation (MMARIF) will give her the sum of N500,000.”

Engr Ibrahim, ITREALMS gathered is also an alumna of UNILAG.

Sources close to UNILAG confirmed to ITREALMS that Ms Aminat Ajikobi is a 300-Level Education/Biology student in the Department of Science Education in the Faculty of Education.

She has since attracted the attention of UNILAG’s Faculty of Education, who also met with her in the company of the Dean of Education and Dean of Students Affairs.

Our sources also disclosed that the university authority promised necessary intervention with more detail report to be made later while advising the public that the concern is under control as at the time of going to the press.

In the viral video made by @rebuildxAfrica and available to ITREALMS, Aminat also said that she has been residing in this apartment for some 10 years now and teaches to survive whilst still sponsoring herself currently at UNILAG. Her home-teaching job fetches her close to N40,000 monthly.

Her apartment situation has been variously described as ‘terrible condition’ by some commentators of Aminat’s viral video, just as she stands on her floating bed to cook on student 6kg gas cylinder.

Aminat was eulogized for keeping her head up despite the challenges life has thrown at her.

“... Despite the condition, she remained uncompromising, hopeful, and forward looking,” one of the commentators said.
Meanwhile, ITREALMS gathered that the 5.41minutes viral video has since attracted more assistance for Ms Aminat Ajikobi, following the facts that emerged that university authority has already stepped into the matter, her faculty also met on Tuesday this week specifically on the video and her situation.

In addition, ITREALMS gathered that the Sports Directorate at UNILAG has indicated interest in her matter as at the time of filing this report, alongside some corporates who may leverage this to showcase a little of the corporate social responsibility.
