Imo state Governor Hope Uzodima has announced to the public via his twitter account that he will adopt 9year old Joseph Olumachi Opara whose viral video has caught the attention of people.
The 9year old Joseph hawks fruits on the street and gets his customers attention by using his voice,singing catholic hymns as he sells to them .
The Governor’s words…
In celebration of #FathersDay , I directed that little 9 year old Master Joseph Oluomachi Opara, the viral Imo State-born singer be contacted as I announce my intentions to adopt him as my own child.I also undertake, personally, to sponsor him from primary school level (his current educational level) to Catholic priesthood (his career choice).Master Opara made waves in the internet at the weekend with videos of his unique rendition of some catholic hymns/songs which marked him out as a specially talented kid singer. This attracted instant applause and commendations from the public.I believe in harnessing skills and talents and grooming them to be of better use to mankind and to this end, I directed that the family, through the Imo State commissioner for information, Hon. Declan Emelumba be informed of my intention to adopt their son as my own child.I also undertake to personally take over the full responsibility of his training until he becomes a Reverend Father, which he said is his life ambition.It my expectation and prayer that little Oluoma attains his full potentials in God’s time. God bless Imo State
