Nigeria's striker Rashidi Yekini's mother living in Penury selling bread
Late Rashidi Yekini's mother Alhaja Sidikat Yekini now lives in penury in Ira town,Kwara State selling bread for survival..
SRSportdotcom gathered from a source in Kwara State who revealed that life has been pretty difficult for the Yekini’s family since the death of the former African football king. It was also gathered that Alhaja Sidikat cried out for help few months ago, after revealing that ‘life
has been difficult for her’ since the passing of her son.
“My son has served this country, and I want the government and other people to come to our aid because It would not be good for me to die in this situation,” she pleaded.
Nigeria has been known to fail its stars in the past.But i think in this case ,its more Yekini's family that should carry the blame on this woman's plight.Yekini has properties that he left behind.He also has a huge house in Ibadan,Nigeria that has about 5 or 6 flats.But you know what? The house is abandoned with nobody leaving in it.
If that house is rented out,Rashidi Yekini's mother would have enough money coming to her to survive and live a good life.
Yekini scored 37 goals in 58 appearances for the Super Eagles and died in May 2012 at the age of 48. He remains the highest goal scorer for the Super Eagles with 37 goals and represented Nigeria in five major tournaments, including two FIFA World Cup competitions in USA ‘94 and France ‘98 respectively.
