Governor Uzidinma said he will personally take over full responsibility for training him until he becomes a Rev. Father which Joseph said is his ambition.

“His Excellency, Senator Hope Uzodimma, was so excited after listening to the video of Master Opara that he directed me to locate you and inform you that from today Joseph is now his child and that since he wants to become a Catholic priest, he will take up the responsibility of training him from his present Primary 4 class until he is ordained a priest.”
