Alaba stated that part of the money would be given to his father, noting his contribution and support.
“My father laboured hard to see me through the University, I will give him something, no matter how small.
Furthermore, he stated that the remaining amount would be used for the purchase of a laptop and an android phone to start his online business.
“I will use the remaining amount for the purchase of a laptop and android phone to start an online business. I am not going for an expensive phone, what I need is an affordable one that will be useful for my business.
