Boy who built his own bike and later got a new one as gift, is finally back in school


The story of little Godwin Musa is gradually ending in praise as someone who saw his story online has decided to enroll him in school, pay his fees and get him all the necessary school materials.

Remember that, on the 15th of December, 2015, one Lara Wise posted about her encounter with Godwin Musa, a boy
she met during her evangelism and welfare visit to a slum in Abuja. She said Musa’s childhood dream, apart from growing up into a very responsible man, is to own a bicycle.


She said he sleeps and wakes up with this dream after seeing and riding the bicycle only in his dreams. So, guess what? He did what many adults won’t do. Instead of waiting and wailing, Instead of getting angry and depressed over what he can’t have, he started from somewhere.


He built a bicycle from scraps. And he rides it with so much pride!!! Musa said: “Since my father cannot afford a bicycle for me, I decided to make one myself.” Lisa ended the post by saying: “Ladies and gentlemen, shouldn’t we get a bicycle for Godwin? Ehn?????” A Good Samaritan saw the post and bought him a new bicycle. Now he is in school, thanks to another Good Samaritan…. a Rolls-Royce Phantom is next….




We're not around right now. But you can send us an email and we'll get back to you, asap.
