Nigerian man becomes US citizen, years after parents made huge sacrifice to send him abroad


A Nigerian man, identified as Ayo Philips, has officially become a US citizen years after his parents made a huge sacrifice to send him abroad.

Mr Ayo took to Twitter to share his inspiring story. According to him, his parents used their property as collateral to get a $1500 (N571,875.00) loan for his one-way ticket to America.

20 years later, his life has changed for good as he is now a part-owner of a big business in America with an opportunity to make his parents sacrifice their greatest investment of all time.

Sharing photos of himself and his family outside the US immigration building, he wrote,

“At 2:23 pm CT today, I became an American
20 yrs ago, my parents took out a $1500 loan guaranteed by their possessions to get me on a 1-way flight here
Today, I am part-owner of a business with an opportunity to make that their greatest investment
That’s the magic of America.”
