A son-in-law to a former governor of Imo state, Uche Nwosu, has said that he had no regrets helping Lagos amputee hawker, Mary Daniel.
Nwosu, who was reacting to news making the rounds that the 26-year- old Kogi born amputee fabricated his story in other to draw sympathies from the Public, said that the mother of one’s pathetic condition him to help.
Nwosu who gave Daniel a cheque of N1m said that she needed the help of people to survive.
He wondered why the sudden attention on the lady now that fortune had smiled her way.
He noted that nobody recognised Daniel all the while she was in penury and struggling to live .
Nwosu said “what attracted my sympathy attentionv to Mary was nothing other than her amputee condition and also a single parent of a little girl, not the stories .Of course , when I saw her on social media, it was her picture that got my interest, seeing an amputee hawking bottled water in busy place like Lagos, competing with those with complete body, it was a sight of sympathy to behold.
” All the stories attached are secondary. it might be diversionary in other for some people to lay hands on her money and I am advising that what should be paramount is how to establish her and not otherwise.
” As she said that she want to open a super market , that should be the focus and not otherwise I want to thank all those who responded to her help after I brought her to limelight .
“I heard that she has made up to N25m, That’s good and enough to change her life for good. God has a way of lifting men and God has not stopped the business of lifting men, only have patience and trust in him.”
