Lucky Udu, media personality, has revealed why Nigerian clergyman and philanthropist Apostle Chibuzor Chinyere had siezed sponsoring the education of the former viral security guards known as Happie Boys, leading to their drop out as he claimed to have spoken to him.
Apostle Chibuzor had offered to fully sponsor their education in Cyprus, after they went viral last year for dancing.
However, the boys revealed few days ago, announcing that they had dropped out of school due to lack of sponsorship. This revelation left many wondering what had happened between them and their benefactor.
After series of misunderstanding, Lucky, claimed to have spoken to the clergyman regarding the issue, and has now shed light on the matter. He explained that it was due to the increase in the dollar exchange rate, Apostle Chibuzor could no longer afford to continue paying their fees in Cyprus.
As a solution, he suggested that they return to Nigeria, Ghana, or Benin Republic to continue their studies, but they refused. Lucky said;
“I just spoke to the OPM pastor and he said that when dollar went up, things became difficult and he couldn’t sustain them, he advised them to return to a Nigerian university or he sends them to Ghana or Benin Republic to continue their education. The burden became too much to bear but they didn’t understand nor listen.
“That man has too many responsibilities. Over 4000 students abroad. He send the children to school and then, the parents cater for their children. Unfortunately, not everyone can cope with such opportunities. Some will spend all their opportunities thinking the man will provide everything for them.
If their family can squeeze out something to sustain them, let them do so. I’m not judging those boys o but before the left Nigeria, they were dressing decently but after they left for Cyprus, they started dressing indecently and expensive when they fully know that they have no kobo compared to what the man of God can assist with. I feel for them sha.” Lucky shared.
