Episode 5: #SaveNiyi, a Lymphatic Cancer Student Cries Out For Help

Niyi Before and After

Since last week, a campaign has been going on on social media, particularly Facebook, about #SaveNiyi, a student of Ekiti State University (EKSU), Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State, Nigeria who was diagnosed with Lymphatic Cancer and Hepatitis B.

Remember that last episode, I celebrated my birthday and I asked that you help someone in need as a gift for my birthday. This is another way you can help someone in need.

In case you’ve not seen the campaign before, kindly read it below:

At a point we felt the hurdle had been scaled, the rubicon crossed and the storm be over, behold grief in a limitless fold on the surface.

You all remember a post of mine about my friend Kolawole Olaniyi Emmanuel whose health status lacerated my heart then? his health condition is not any better, I have not shed tears for any reason since 2007 but the pictures of Niyi has these tears budding because am depressed and dejected a dream as Niyi’s is on a frolic of perdition thanks to his health status but I know God won’t permit such, I have not known grief this much

He is a 400l law student of Ekiti State University, not just a barrister in equity but a bundle of talents woven in one person, humorist, intelligent, fun person but behold beyond a shadow of his own self, this lacerates the heart beyond words.

You cannot have attended UCAAD and not know Niyi. Talk less RCF EKSU. Members and Alumni of Faculty of Law EKSU, this guy play the guitar in the most unique way I’ve ever heard.

Niyi was diagnosed with lymphatic cancer and Hepatitis B on August 2016(his birthday month) at the university of Lagos university teaching hospital (LUTH),and since then, he has been bed ridden, dropped out of school and looks like a shadow of himself.

Niyi needs the sum of 3 million Naira for his chemotherapy treatments and dialysis to help save his liver and stop the cancer from spreading to other organs of his body.

Please let’s not allow the dreams and aspirations of Niyi to die.
We are appealing to kind hearted Nigerians to please help #saveNiyi.

Consequently, CCP was in the school to interview his close friend and some of his school mates. You can listen to it on today’s episode of the charity Connect Podcast.

It is interesting to know that Niyi is brilliant, a bundle of talents and someone that is useful to this generation and beyond.

Currently, Niyi has gotten ₦600,000 out of more than ₦3,000,000 (about $10,000) that he needs.

If more 3000 people can donate ₦1000 each, we can reach the target but that’s not even enough of what Niyi needs.

After your donation, you can come back to this page and comment “Done“.

Feel free to download this episode and share with as many people has possible.

Episode 4: Where and How Would You Like To Celebrate Your Birthday?


birthdayBirthday is popularly known to be a day you celebrate when you were born. Someone once defined it as the only day you cried while your mother smiled. A lot of people celebrate their birthdays in different ways. While most people party during their birthdays, some would prefer being alone in a place of prayer and so on and so forth.

People do have different feelings at different stages in their lives when celebrating their birthdays. For example, kids feel merry or happy and full of dreams and aspirations. They eat cakes and are flabbergasted by the gifts their parents and/or friends would give them.

Young people most often, busy people, forget their birthdays. If they come to know it, it would be just another day for them. Some of them would think that instead of spending for birthday, they had rather saved their money for future.

At old age, most people feel sad as they are getting older and older. They would be full of thoughts of their past birthdays. For some, it is a time to reflect on what has been achieved and what has not been achieved.

So, the fact is that people celebrate their birthdays in different ways special to them.

This week, Wednesday, 24th of May is my birthday and I have been thinking of where and how to celebrate my birthday. On this episode of the Charity Connect Podcast, I have two Guests who shared where they would love to celebrate their birthdays and why they chose such a location. Remember, Maureen shared her sex abuse story in the last episode. 

Apart from them, I requested that people send their opinions on where they would love to celebrate their birthdays and why they chose such place. It is amazing to know that many people are so willing to celebrate their birthdays by visiting the less privileged.

Therefore, in this episode, you are going to learn listen to my Guests and different people sharing their views on where they feel is best to celebrate their birthdays.

Where would you love to celebrate your own birthday and why? Kindly drop your comments in the comment box below this post and let’s hear from you too.
