Kamilu Suleiman, who is according to reports, a graduate of Electrical Electronics from Kaduna Polytechnic has decided to sell one of his kidneys to further his education.

Premium Times reports that Suleiman who had completed his Youth Service Corps in 2014, revealed that frustration had brought about the idea of putting up his kidneys for sale.

Mr. Suleiman explained: 

“Frustration is what brought the idea of my readiness to sell one of my kidneys just to get money to sponsor my education. I really want to be useful to the society. I don’t want the effort of my parents to go in vein."

Mr Suleiman who is an indigene of Ilobu in Osun State, was born the second of 7 children and bred in Kaduna State.

Speaking on the how he had lost his sight, Suleiman explained that he had been diagnosed with Glaucoma at the National Eye Centre Kaduna in 2009, but had lost his sight completely in 2012.

“I was supposed to graduate in 2012 but because of a carryover (C.O) I got in one subject, I went for my NYSC in year 2013 and finished in year 2014.

“I was posted to Plateau State but requested for redeployment back to Kaduna due to my condition. After I became completely blind I decided to live with a friend to avoid my parents seeing me in this condition because I don’t like seeing them worried.”

Mr. Suleiman adds that his goal is to study courses and programs which will enable him maximise his present situation.

“So I’m appealing to well meaning Nigerians to help me with a job or scholarship to further my education. I have applied to various media organizations seeking for job but I didn’t hear anything positive.

“My effort to look for somebody to sponsor my Masters program didn’t yield result. I just want to further my education so as to be useful to society and help others in my condition too.

“My parents don’t have the money and I don’t to be a burden on them."

Mr Suleiman also explains some of the steps he has taken to seek support from influential Nigerians in the country, saying:

“I got a letter from Jama’atul Nasril Islam (JNI) to my governor, Rauf Aregbesola, in 2014. Another letter to Chief Imam of Yorubaland, Mustapha Ajibade, and to the Chief Imam of my home town seeking for assistance but I’m yet to hear from them.

“The letter to the governor I gave it to his personal Assistant, Alhaji Sikiru. I also spoke to Deputy Speaker House of Representatives who is from my home town, Lasun Sulaiman Yusuf, who also promised to help me but as I speak to you he has stopped picking my calls."
