Blind Nigerian graduate puts up his kidney for sale — Premium Times


Kamilu Suleiman, 32, a graduate of Electrical Electronics from Kaduna Polytechnic, has decided to sell one of his kidneys to further his education. He said, “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. I was diagnosed with Glaucoma at the National Eye Centre Kaduna in 2009, but lost my sight completely in 2012. 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.”

The indigene of Ilobu in Osun State, who was born and grew up in Kaduna State as the second of 7 children, said his goal is to study courses and programs that 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. 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 P.A, Alhaji Sikiru. I also spoke to Deputy Speaker House of Reps., 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. I have also sent a letter, through courier, to Sen. Shehu Sani, representing Kaduna Central,” he said. Cc:
