According to Samuel, Paul faced a lot of challenges while working in Nigeria. 

He said: “Before Paul left Nigeria in 2018 for his studies at AUC, he was an investigative journalist with the Kogi State news agency, and those at his workplace didn’t want him to come for his masters. Yet, their salaries were not paid consistently by the Yahaya Bello government.” 

“After finishing at the AUC with a CGPA of 3.67 CGPA, he returned to Nigeria where he has been facing a lot of problems. One night, his family was robbed and he had to try to fight them off. “

He is asking the public to help him as he now needs more to settle flight and visa application fees for him and his wife “
