Social media has not only been driving changes around the world, it has in many ways changed people’s social status after posts about them go viral. The latest in the line of people whose lives have gone from worse to a better state than they would never have imagined possible is Risikat and her beautiful children Kaosarat and Hassanat.
The wife of Kwara state governor, Olufolake Abdulrasaq, offered a helping hand to the Ilorin-based family, saying she would reach out to them through her NGO, Ajike People Support Centre.
She tweeted: “The First Lady of Kwara State has been in touch with the family through the @Ajike_Centre. We’re also doing everything to support Mrs Risikat and her children and possibly unite the wife and the children with her husband.” A Nigerian woman with the handle @DuchessofKanta has, however, taken another perspective on the family’s transformation pictures that trended days ago. She said that she really feels bad that the family had to appear without their hijabs in one of their new beautiful pictures which many Nigerians hailed as a marker of a changed life for them.
The woman subtweeted the original tweet of their pictures on Twitter and said: “It hurt me that they had to lose the hijabs for this pic.”
