Success' dilapidated school in Delta
My view: President Buhari's government should do something about millions of voiceless Nigerian school children who face the same hardship that little Success Adegor exposed to the world. It is so sad that millions of school children and University Undergraduates are suffering alongside their parents who can't afford to pay their fees, while Nigerian Senators earn over $72k (N40million) a-month. Hampered by government neglect and corruption the condition of many schools in Nigeria are in a state of disrepair, how sad is that?. Success Adegor is very special with a unique name and she's now living up to the true meaning of her name.
