She advised her to be strong and ensure that motherhood does not stop her education and from achieving her purpose in life.
“Being a parent comes with its share of challenges and woes”, Mrs Onyemaechi stressed while advising Chioma to be responsive and set boundaries for herself.
She called for support from public-spirited individuals to enable Chioma train her baby and complete her education.
Chioma, in a chat with newsmen, said she was tricked by some group of persons claiming to be Nollywood stars and because of her diminutive nature, they promised to feature her in so many movies and help bring her to limelight.
