News Delta community raises N20 million to provide palliatives to residents

The Issele-Uku Development Union in Aniocha North Council Area of Delta, says it has distributed foodstuffs worth over N20 million as palliatives to the people of the community to cushion the hardship of COVID-19 lockdown.

The Issele-Uku Development Union in Aniocha North Council Area of Delta, says it has distributed foodstuffs worth over N20 million as palliatives to the people of the community to cushion the hardship of COVID-19 lockdown.

Mr Uche Odiaka, the Coordinator of the Union’s Palliative Committee, told newsmen on Friday in Issele-Uku that prominent sons and daughters of the community came together to provide the fund to support their people.

Odiaka said that the committee distributed bags of rice and beans to every household in the community.

“Well-meaning and wealthy individuals from Issele-Uku deemed it fit to help alleviate the sufferings of our people during this period of COVID-19 lockdown.

“As a committee, we intend to ensure that the food palliatives get to every family in Issele-Uku community.

“We also mobilised to educate our people on the need to obey government’s directives towards curtailing the spread of COVID-19.

“We have been going round to educate our people on the need to observe the physical distancing, regular hand-washing and wearing of facemasks,” he said.

He disclosed that besides the donation of the palliatives, the Union had contributed immensely to the socio-economic development of Issele-Uku.

According to him, the recent restoration of electric power and the dredging of Iyinta River to curb flooding were some of the areas of the Union’s intervention.

Odiaka further revealed that the Union had initiated plans to restore public water supply to Issele-Uku which had eluded the community over the years.

He enjoined the people of the community to be law-abiding and support Gov. Ifeanyi Okowa’s administration for the overall development of the state.
