A Cleric, Spiritual Director of Holy Ghost Adoration Ministry, Uke, Rv. Fr Emmanuel Obimma (Ebube Muonso) said that he has already began a foundation, Mrs Grace Obimma foundation, a foundation in Nigeria towards assisting the poor masses in our society and the indigent students.

“My mother even began the foundation while she was alive. She pressurized me to pay school fees to certain people in this village and which I had to oblige. So I added them to my scholarship scheme, I already began a social program for widows, we have been doing it but this time we have to double it, and it’s gonna be an annual empowerment.

“A heavy empowerment for market women, with this and others we hope to immortalise her name. I added them to my scholarship, already I have 384 students on scholarship. Both at St John Viani Special Science School, Igbariam, Divine British school Obosi and other schools, both St.Valerian Primary School and other schools.

“I have grade A’ scholarship for those who are intelligent, in every Ebube Muonso scholarship and they will write the examinations, the best among them in English, Maths and Sciences automatically will be given scholarship until they finish. Grade B: scholarship are those who couldn’t make the list for the grade A’, and couldn’t pay their school fees, we give them 100
scholarship, and grade C’, are indigent students who are ready to go to school and I am happy that many of them are graduates.

“I have already prayed for those that attended my mother’s burial, I know my mother is a saint, I have already started seeing signs. Life without Christ is a life of crisis. But God has final say, let us love and appreciate God more by doing His will. Let us live a life of love and let us be charitable, let those in government beginning from president, they have allocations and enough to take care of their family and indigent ones around them,” he pleaded.
