The Interim Management Committee chairman of Oru-West, Willie Okolieogwo, has doffed his hat for Governor Hope Uzodinma, over the relief packages for the people of the state.
He made the declaration in Owerri last Saturday, at the state International Convention Centre (IICC).
The chairman described Uzodinma in a plethora of praise, Okolieogwo told journalists, “In fact, you know he is a very proactive governor… He’s a man that is very dedicated, so committed and he’s able at all times that the issues concerning humanity are properly addressed. When the people are happy he is happy.”
The IMC chairman noted that coincidentally, as Easter was afoot, the governor knew that the people, in addition to cushioning the effects of hunger occasioned by the coronavirus pandemic, would feel the other side of the period, that not going out nor getting anything around to feed themselves, decided to float the food items.
“It’s important to make some palliative measures as far as the citizens are concerned.
“If you look around he has some trailer loads of rice, yams, tin tomatoes, vegetable oil and what have you? There are all here. And he is ready to distribute them to the communities through the local government chairmen. That is why most of us are here. So people are happy that the governor is cushioning the effects of the coronavirus or COVID-19,” he said.
He opined that the governor was being natural for what he did.
“He is not doing it to impress anybody. That is his nature… He doesn’t want to see people suffer….” On the modalities for sharing the relief items, the chairman said, “The communities are here represented by the local government chairmen. As soon as we take these things down we also take instructions from the State Government, we gonna take a template –to develop a template, and whatever template they give to us we follow it and make sure people get what belongs them,” he assured.
