Tunde Onakoya, Chess In Slum Africa founder, has recalled one of the sacrifices his father made to see that he got proper education while growing up.

The techpreneur revealed that his dad sold the car he was using for taxi business in order to pay his West African Examinations Council (WAEC) fees before the deadline.

Onakoya went down memory lane on Father’s Day in response to a tweet that asked people to share stories of their father’s act of selflessness.
