According to Darren Idongesit Aquaisua:
“I am a humanist but I try to make sure my emotions don’t get to my head when making important decisions especially as regards people’s lives and money.
“The money donated to Mayowa is public money. It wasn’t given for vacation or family members. The sincere thing to do is let the public know how they used it for the purpose to which it was intended and any remaining funds can be transferred directly and every single penny to other cancer patients at pediatric wards in LUTH.
“The family shouldn’t have solicited public funds if issues of transparency were in question.
“The greedy celebrity that goes around trying to become rich and famous off the suffering of others ought to be ashamed.
“Linda Ikeji should be ashamed of herself but that one is already shameless, so I am not even attacking her as negative publicity is what her fame feeds on.
“I stand for accountability and we mustn’t be defined by corruption including public funds for helping an individual who did no wrong in reaching out to Nigerians for help, but at the same time it should be clear that the donations are not Mayowa’s and her family’s neither is it for the greedy celebrity and her foundation. That money is public money and if it can’t help Mayowa then it should be used for what it was intended; transfer every single kobo to aid the treatment of children with cancer in LUTH or use it to buy equipments or cancer drugs.
“Seeking accountability doesn’t mean one is inhumane or evil; we shouldn’t be shamed into thinking we don’t deserve the truth in how public money is spent.”
