Oluomachi Rescued: Gov Uzodinma Fulfills Promise, as the Street Hawker Returns to School.

A month ago, internet was on fire as young Nigerian singing sensation, a 9-years old Oluomachi Joseph Opara was captured on a viral video singing praises to God while hawking coconut, pear and other edible fruits along the streets of Owerri.The spirit filled Oluomachi with a Gold melodious Voice was recorded by good Samaritan, Mr Stanley Nnamdi at Nekede Mechanic Village, Owerri hawking and singing praises to God. The recorded video was uploaded on the Facebook by Stan Naeso, with the help of Blogger and Social Media Influencer, IfeanyiCy Njoku, the video was heavily circulated by Nigerians and to the glory of God, good spirited individuals, men and women of goodwill came to the rescue of little Oluomachi to ensure he gets a better education and stop hawking on the street.

As it pleases God. Imo State Governor, Senator Hope Uzodinma adopted the young Oluomachi Joseph as his own son and offered to take care of his education until he become a priest which he so desired. Governor Uzodinma, in fulfilment of that promised had met with Oluomachi and parents and made a handsome cash donation of one million five hundred thousand naira (N1,500,000.00) for his personal upkeep and to ensure he got registered in a good school. The awesome support and scholarship will continue until the young man finishes his education upto University level.

The good gesture by Governor Hope Uzodinma is in addition to similar support and scholarship from revered Nigerians like former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-kayode who gave 250,000, former Minister of Aviation and Senator who represented Anambra North in the National Assembly, Senator Stella Oduah who supported the education of the young boy with another N300, 000 and many Nigerians who made handsome donations in support of Oluomachi.

As promised fulfilled, the Catholic congregation, Sons of Marry mother of Mercy (SMMM) has accepted Oluomachi in their educational institution to kick of the harnessing process of his God given talent, and to coach him in morals and educational growth. It's therefore important to note that Parents of Oluomachi had visited and inspected the School were their son will begin the development process immediately School resumes.

For those who shared the post which went viral, the person who recorded the video and all those who made contributions in one way or another, I thank you immensely for being used by God to rescue Oluomachi. That's the true service to God and humanity.
