Apart from the scholarship, one million naira was also given to the boy's parents to start a trade with professional supervision and advice from business experts to ensure the success of the business.
All this, however, would not have been possible without Dr Ifeanyi Chukwuma Odii, the young boy's benefactor.
Honourable Omisore has commended the philanthropist for his kind gesture towards the boy.
Briefly.co.za reported that Omisore, a former member of the Lagos State House of Assembly, finally found the physically challenged boy who, in the photograph the lawmaker posted earlier, was seen selling water.
