Teacher who trekked to work gets car
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a primary school teacher who trekked to work was gifted a car.
To ease his work experience, a group of teachers pooled resources together and decided to gift him a car, Fox5 reports. It was the way he reacted to the gift that got many people talking.
In a video shared by Good News Movement on Instagram, the teachers took the man to the park and pointed at the car they just got him.
When the head custodian was handed the keys, he stood on the same spot for seconds not knowing what to say. He then took some steps back, raised his hands into the sky, and thanked God.
