"What a Mighty God: Nnaemeka Gets N180,000 Lifeline; Thanks To Sam Okoli"
"If you could recall a touching story of a young boy ( Nnaemeka James Okeagu) around the age of 20 to 22 years I reported here on Facebook yesterday morning, Monday 16th January, 2017. I told us how I woke of from sleep restless and highly worried only thinking about a young boy from my village, from a very poor home, who finished learning a trade ( Aluminium work) that he can use to earn a living to sustain his life and that of family, after spending years in the secondary school without anybody to sponsor him further his education. The young Nnaemeka resorted to learn Art Work; the fabrication of aluminium, fixing of windows, doors and rails but on graduation from training, the family could not afford to raise capital for him to start his trade. Out of frustration and to survive the challenging situation, James have no other option than to start climbing Palm Trees to cut palm fruits for families who pay him N50 or N100 per palm tree."
"Shocked at the dangers of the new development and looking at his bright future, a very humble, respectful, hardworking and intelligent young boy. After narrating his ordeals to me and informing me of his plan to go back to his aluminium work immediately he saved enough money from climbing palm trees, which he will use to buy equipments and tools for his work. I promised him that God will provide him money. It was a promise of faith. But on return to Owerri from Village after Christmas festivities, my spirit became troubled. Always thinking about the young man. I heard a voice asking me to make a post on his behalf. I obeyed that voice and only yesterday, I posted pleading on friends here to help me give the young man a lifeline. That doing so will be the happiest moment of my life."
