Temi Akin Alake’s Story
I remember when I seriously needed a side job and I was too lazy to start looking. My mom actually stepped up and started telling everyone around that I needed a job. People refused to give me the job because I was a student. Then against my dad’s wish, my mother employed me and paid me as a worker. And that made me who I am today. #BankOnMoms
Gloria Aigbona’s Story
I remember after writing the West African Examination like 4 times, my dad had given up on me. My mom borrowed money enrol me. Thank God I passed that last one, got into the university and today I am a certified lawyer. I love you mom.
Blessing Ayandele’s Story
For all the times I forgot to say “thank you”.
For all the special little things you do,
For your kind support throughout the years,
For teaching me the true meaning of compassion,
And sharing in my triumphs and tears.
I need to say “I love you mum”. Yes I do.
Mercy Eberechi Inem’s Story
At birth, I was given an 80% chance of surviving. My sweet mother made the ultimate sacrifice when I was abandoned in the hospital, she moved to the village with my grandmother just to make sure I survived.
My favorite memory is the story of my birth. I escaped from your womb at 8 months, I was given an 80% chance of surviving but your faith saw me through. My sweet mother I heart you forever. You made an ultimate sacrifice when I was abandoned in the hospital; nobody thought I would make it. As people believed premature babies were likely to die in the incubator according to stories, you took me to your mother, (my grand mother) for possible local help. You stayed in the village just to make sure I survived. And with your prayers, I did.
