She gave me notting bt she have done all for me. I call her ma role model and mentor. Mummy,as u sleep on,I wil trade in ur footprint of fearlessness and high moral of discipline,popularity and the zeal to help the poor. Thank you ma for saving our lifes from the wicked hand of drug dealers at Onitsha. I wil 4eva remember you for setting paul and grace foundation in ur own radio house Solid100.9 Enugu.
