Elijah age five, the last of three siblings lives in Agwan Kwaso, Tunga-Maje an indigenous town within the city of Abuja with a landscape view of the beautiful nature of Abuja. He attends LEA nursery & primary school, Agwan Kwaso with his immediate elder brother, Chris age eight who is in Pry 3. 

Many of the children in Tunga Maje falls within the ages of 5 & 15.

Elijah was born couple of months after his father died in the year 2014, in Yoruba where I come from the name Babatunde (which means 'father returns') would have been given to him. 
Elijah bares a significant resemblance with his late Father so he is so much of a consolation to his widowed mother Naomi Ayuba 28years, who also doubles as the mother and Father to her 3 boys.
She is doing amazingly well I can tell from the ambitions and intentions of her sons. 
Caleb who is the eldest of her sons already molds local bricks with clay soils with the intent of building a house for their beautiful mother on a land she owns.
Elijah and his immediate sibling are unfortunately amongst the hundreds of kids who attends a community school built with zincs and has two rooms as classes, with school materials in short supply. Though the school has a permanent site in construction, things can be better for Elijah and his peers in Tunga- Maje before they finally relocate.
