Wasilat graduated from God's Light Group of Schools, Oyo town, Oyo state and many other kids were seen in the video shared online by @Oluwakayodey_.
He wrote on Twitter:
"Wasilat was weeping when she was giving her farewell speech. None of her parents showed up at the party due to lack of money. Her dad is jobless and her mom is a 'struggling' trader. It was the school that funded some of her things, including the graduation gown."
Legit.ng contacted @Oluwakayodey_ and he confirmed that he was the MC at the graduation where the girl cried. He called on public-spirited individuals to help the girl continue her education.
He also sent photos of Wasilat's 3rd term academic report to Legit.ng, which shows that she has "Excellent" remarks in all subjects. She obtained 80 marks and above in all the 12 subjects seen on the report sheet. The report card also described Wasilat as an obedient child.
