The chairman, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, has moved to assist a young girl spotted on the street doing shoe cobbling work.
Naija News understands that Dabiri-Erewa’s attention was drawn to the homeless girl after a concerned Nigerian identified as Kola Airfinance Mohammed [@airfinance20] on Twitter, shared a video of the physically challenged girl working under the sun to feed herself.
According to the netizen, the girl is always at the spot where he captured the video, mending and shinning shoes to make a living.
