Alhaja Sikirat Yekini, mother of the late Super Eagles legendary goal scorer, Rashidi Yekini has won N2 million.
The octogenarian won the money on popular TV quiz game shown “Who wants to be a Millionaire”.
She 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?”
Alhaja Yekini, happily said: “Also, I am getting to realise that there are still some good people in our midst. Everything is still like a dream to me”, she said in a chat after the show. “When the representative of this company contacted me that he would be coming to visit me, all the way from Lagos and that I should consider him as one of my sons, I could not believe it. He said they wanted to celebrate with me and reward me. He now said something that touched my heart: “we want to do part of what Rashidi would have further done for you if he had been around”. Honestly, I was touched.”
“Let me tell you, the essence of events like this in human life cannot be quantified! It gives longevity. That is the feeling I am having now. I am going to live longer. I have just seen life, yet again in another perspective.
“Also, maybe I should tell you that the organisers have assured me of their guidance to enable me spend the money meaningfully,” she concluded, saying the money won would be spent on food and medical needs.
