RENOWNED British poet, William Wordsworth, says the best moments of a good man’s life are “the little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and love.” If that is indeed the case, the chairman of Taleveras Group Charles Igho Sanomi must be feeling very happy. With help from his foundation, Ahmadu Ali, a 24-year-old survivor of the deadly Boko Haram sect in Chibok, Borno State, has a second chance at a happy and productive life.
The young Ali was one of the victims of a raid carried out by the sect in 2014, during which they kidnapped dozens of girls, leaving him with a spinal cord injury. Since then he has had to contend with excruciating pains even as groups like the Global Initiative for Peace, Love and Care (GIPLC) ran around, trying to raise funds for corrective surgery on him.
Succour finally came his way in the guise of the Dickens Sanomi Foundation set up by Igho Charles in honour of his father. The foundation agreed to bankroll Ali’s medical expenses to the tune of $ 48,000. As a result of this most auspicious of human intervention, Ali has been flown to Dubai where he is currently receiving treatment.
