Uche Nwosu Donates N1m To Mary Daniel, Lagos Amputee Water Hawker

A son-in-law to a former governor of Imo State, Uche Nwosu, on Sunday donated N1m to 26- year- old amputee water hawker, Mary Daniel.

Daniel’s photographs had gone viral on the social media where she was seen selling sachet water on the streets of Lagos.

The Kogi State born mother of one had told Sunday PUNCH that she sold water in sachets to feed herself, daughter and granddaughter.

According to her, she lost her parents and one of her legs to a road crash when she was 11years.

But on Sunday, Nwosu, who was the Action Alliance governorship candidate in Imo State in the 2019 governorship election, gave her N1m to establish a business of her choice.

Nwosu told The PUNCH on Sunday that he was moved by the lady’s strong commitment to hardwork despite her disability.

The politician, who urged other Nigerians to assist the lady, said, “Daniel has demonstrated the kind of I can-make-it spirit which Nigerians were known for.”
