Alhaja Sikirat assisted by actors; Dejumo Lewis and Binta Ayo Mogaji
Late Super Eagles legendary striker, Rashidi Yekini's mother, Alhaja Sikirat Yekini, has won N2million, on popular television quiz game show, “Who wants to be a Millionaire”.
According to Punch Metro, the octogenarian was assisted by veteran actor, Dejumo Lewis and Binta Ayo Mogaji-Oduleye during the game show’s recent annual special edition tagged “Who Deserves to Be a Millionaire?”
Recall that in August 2016, after it was revealed that Yekini’s mother was living in penury despite the heroic feats performed by her son before his demise, the Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, hired a maid and a nurse to take care of the octogenarian.
Saraki who had also donated a tricycle to Yekini’s younger brother, Hakeem, said that he had financed the sinking of a borehole and renovated the residence of Alhaja Sikirat Yekini and upgraded her shop to a mini mart.
He had explained that the aim was to make the family not to feel neglected or abandoned.
