An American black billionaire is funding the education of 24 Nigerian Chibok girls recently released from terrorist group Boko Haram’s captivity.
Robert Smith, founder of Vista Equity Partners, a private equity firm, is sponsoring the girls to study at the American University of Nigeria (AUN) in Yola, Nigeria.
Last week, Nigeria’s media spokesman, Mallam Garba Shehu, confirmed that Smith, who has an estimated net worth of $2.5 billion according to Forbes, had offered his financial support.
Shehu added that Smith is also “offering to take responsibility for all the others who will hopefully be eventually set free,” The Huffington Post reported yesterday.
Great gesture and help for those poor terror affected girls.
