Disturbed By Students Sitting On Bare Floor, Newly Recruited Teacher Donates Chairs To Oyo School

It was a beautiful sight to behold on Wednesday Nov 24 2021 as a newly appointed teacher, Mr. Ibikunle Oyewale Titus brought smiles to the faces of staff and students of Oranyan Grammar School in Oyo Town, Oyo State of Nigeria.

Ibikunle, who was recently posted to the school, provided chairs to indigent students of JSS1 in his school.

According to him, he was touched by the students inability to enjoy a conducive learning environment and he decided to intervene in his own little ways.

It must be emphasized that Ibikunle is a PhD student at the University of Ibadan who resigned recently as a banker to take up a teaching job in order to follow his passion and also contribute his own quota to the development of education in Oyo state and Nigeria.

He thereafter called on Nigerian citizens to support government in all ramifications by assisting the government when the need arises.

Visibly elated members of staff led by the Principal and students took turns each to appreciate and pray for Mr Ibikunle.

He later wrote on his Facebook page.


The success and failure of every government depends on the approach of its citizens to every issues. Without any doubt, the success of the government is our success and vice versa.

I entered JSS1 class few weeks ago and I met some newly admitted students sitting on the floor. I asked and was told they are the ones their parents could not afford to get chairs for them.

They were learning in a non-conducive environment and since then, I have been disturbed . I thought to myself that the best way to remedy this eyesore is to start raising funds in any way I could in order to provide chairs for the students.

Thankfully, I was able to raise some money which I used to purchase some chairs. The piece of furniture which I donated to the school was received by the Principal, staffs and students of Oranyan Grammar School 2.

The beautiful reception I received today motivated me a lot and has spurred me to do more. It equally serves as a challenge to everyone around. Nothing is too small to give as government alone can not solve our problems in the country. No doubt, a collective effort of the government and citizenry is needed to make Nigeria a better country for all.

I hope and pray that I have the grace to do more. I have few people that promised to help me achieve my dream and we can all achieve it together through a collective effort. I am not a philanthropist; I just choose to help the needy students!!!.

May God bless Oyo State and Federal Republic of Nigeria.
