Mr Godwin Adegor, the father of the 7-year-old girl that recently took Nigeria by the storm through a viral video, has disclosed that his daughter named ‘Success’ has always brought the family good fortune.


After viral video, Delta suspends school head for collecting unauthorized fees

Recall that in the viral video that caught the attention of many, including Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta, little Success could be seen protesting about being sent home from school over her parent’s inability to pay her fees.



The video, according to Mr Adegor, has brought unexpected exposure and goodwill to the family, with many calling from far and wide to donate various sums.

According to him, Success, a Primary Three pupil of Okotie-Eboh Primary School, has also got two scholarships from a celebrity, Mr Jollof, and Chairman of Sapele Local Government, Chief Eugene Inoaghan.



Success’s family has also met with the Private Secretary to Governor Okowa, Mr Hilary Ibegbulem.



Reacting to the experience, Mr Adegor said he had always known that his daughter would achieve great things in life, hence his decision to name him success.



BlackBox Nigeria gathered from a chat with Success parents published by the Punch, that as parents, they know all along that Success will bring them great fortune giving the circumstances surrounding her birth.



The father said,


“I knew she would be a great child. That was why I gave her the name Success. We received many favours on the day she was given birth to. Let me tell you a short story about Success. After our second child, my wife said she didn’t want to give birth to another child.



“When she was pregnant with Success, she decided to drink ‘Angle 90’ (a poisonous substance). She said she wanted to die. I convinced her that rather than kill yourself, have the baby so that you could sell it for N500,000. But she said she wouldn’t sell her baby.



“On the day Success was born, somebody that had owed me N100,000 paid the debt. Money was just coming from different areas. As we were receiving the goodwill, I told my wife that if we had terminated the pregnancy, would these favours have come to us? It was because of the goodwill that has always followed her that made me name her Success.



“She has been receiving blessings from every corner since she was born. There was a day a soldier who stopped the vehicle that was taking them (our children) to see their grandmother at Kwale, gave her the bread he had bought for his family. The soldier said he liked the way my daughter was talking. Anywhere she goes, she always receives favour. She has won a scholarship before. The scholarship was given to her by a governor’s aide.”



Stating reasons why he could not pay Success’ examination levies, Adegor said,


“The truth is that on that day, I didn’t have any money on me to pay the levy. It was actually exam levy, and not school fees. All public schools are collecting exam levies. It is not just Okotie-Eboh Primary School. My two other children paid before they left primary school for secondary school.


“I was not informed about the levies early enough.


“I had already told her teacher that Success was too small to be sent home from school.


“I appealed to them to always inform us about things going on rather than to send her away from the school. I had also told them that I would pay, even before the incident.


“One thing about Success is that whenever she is angry, she will say whatever she has on her mind. I know people will feel she’s stubborn but she isn’t stubborn. I know that God has a purpose for her.”
