WHO WILL FINANCE MY EDUCATION NOW?
Elizabeth Fasoro is the 17-year-old daughter of the late Mrs Iyabo Deborah Fasoro. Her mother was the policewoman who was cut down on active duty during the bank robbery in Ikere Ekiti, Ekiti State on 25 November. Elizabeth says she still finds it hard to believe that her mum is no more. The young girl is currently in Senior Secondary School 3 at Ansar -ud-deen Grammar School, Ikere Ekiti.
‘Mum was the best thing in my life. She was a very caring and understanding woman, who played the role of both father and mother to me,’ she said.
‘I just came back from school that day about 4 pm when I learned that robbers had invaded the bank and the police station. Knowing that she could be in danger as a policewoman, I prayed for my mum and then went on to do the domestic chores.
‘After a while, my boss at the tailoring shop where I learn tailoring after school hours came to announce to us in our house that robbers had killed two police officers, a man and a woman.
‘I quickly ran to the station. It was there that I got to know that my mum was the policewoman that was killed. ‘My mum had just lost her elder sister a few days before she was shot dead. She had discussed arrangements of the burial with me and even told me about her plans to settle in Ekiti State. She had promised to give me my school fees the day she was killed. But now, she can’t do that. I don’t know who to turn to for help now.
‘My ambition is to become a journalist. I’m appealing to the government to please intervene on the payment of my late mum’s entitlement from the police force and also to do something for me and my elder brother Tope Fasoro, who is just in his first year of study at the Ikere College of Education, Ikere Ekiti.
‘Since the sad incident, everyone has been in shock. The family has particularly monitored my movements because they know that I might do something bad to myself because I never imagined that my mum would die so young. She was very determined to sponsor me and my brother in school so that we wouldn’t have problems in future. Now there is no one we can turn to. I am appealing to the gove rnment to please sponsor our education.’ (Adapted from The Sun, 11 December 2014) Answer the following questions.
