Tboss who described him as a principled man stated that he was a hard worker who didn't mind getting his hands dirty. She also stated that he sacrificed a lot to take care of their education.
Part of her post read:
"Today was my Father’s Birthday. He would have been 68. I woke up grouchy and all emotional and stuff. He was a very difficult man or maybe he wasn’t - maybe We didn’t really take the time to get to actually know each other. But one thing I can categorically say was that My father was an extremely principled man. It annoyed everybody. He wouldn’t take no bribes or ever look the other way. He was such a hard worker and had no trouble getting his hands dirty just to get the job done properly. He never compromised with education- he would pay our fees in the best schools over buying anything for himself- EVERRR. I really wanna say he was the Best father but I would be lying and there’s really no point in that. Regardless, He was my father and he tried his best. I think his best could have been better."
