…Donates food items
Not less than 120 widows under the umbrella body of Naomi Widows Forum, in Ika South Local Government Area of Delta State, smiled home on Saturday, August 22, 2020, with food items to eat.
The items which include bags of rice, beans, cartons of Power vegetable oil, tomatoes paste and can drinks were donated by the Member representing Ika Federal Constituency at Federal House of Representatives, Hon. (Barr.) Victor Nwokolo, as part of his humanitarian gesture towards supporting the downtrodden.
The donation to the widows is usually carried out twice every year, at Easter and Christmas, which has indeed, rekindled the joy of the women as they got more than enough to feed on.
The distribution exercise was held at The Terbanacle of God Ministry in Ime-Obi, Agbor under the leadership of Bishop Charles Ojewa, whose will, according to him was to propagate good governance.
The occasion was marked with exhortation, praises to God and appreciation to Rt. Hon. Nwokolo whom the guest speaker, Pastor Mokwuye Peter, among other clergymen, Pastor Osonye Henry eulogized for his support to humanity.
In a sermon titled “The fear of God”, Pastor Mokwuye Peter enjoined Christian’s not to indulge in condemning people, saying “God is not happy with those who derives joy running other people, particularly the caregivers, down.
He narrated that since 2011, Hon. Victor Nwokolo has been generous to christian’s in both local government areas of Ika Federal Constituency, adding that only little was been said about the philanthropic life style of the political icon on media’s.
He described the Rt. Hon. Nwokolo as a silent achiever and in the same vein, urged all to keep praying for him.
Speaking further, Pastor Mokwuye encouraged the lawmaker to help build a befiting structure for the church where the widow’s meet. This was followed by the response of the lawmaker ably represented by his personal aide, Mr. Okocha.
He apologized for the items been brought last due to the outbreak of Coronavirus pandemic, but assured that more support would always get to them while affirming that the widows care remains sacrosanct to his boss.
He advised the wisdoms to ensure that they stay safe by keeping with the NCDC rules and protocols of the novel Coronavirus.
In a chat with newsmen, Bishop Charles Ojewa expressed gratitude to God for the life of Rt. Hon. Nwokolo. He narrated how the NASS member has been supportive to the forum, adding that his impact has rekindled joy for the people.
He described the quantity of food items received by each of the widows as superlative been compared to one or two cups of rice and beans allegedly shared as Covid-19 palliative during the lockdown.
He said, “we are happy with what Rt. Hon. Nwokolo is doing which is part of the reasons why the people voted for him. If only others in the corridors of power could follow same path, the sufferings of the mass will reduced to its bearest minimal.”
“Meanwhile, we are urging him to continue to do more for the people as the benefit of a good work, is to do more,” Bishop Ojewa added.
At the end of the occasion, five widows were attached to share one big bag or beans and rice to include two medium caps of tomatoes paste and 2liters of Power vegetable oil.
Beneficiaries who spoke to newsmen thanked Rt. Hon. Nwokolo for providing them with enough food to eat.
They said, “we buy a cup of rice for #150 and beans for #100 which we obviously don’t have the money to always buy. But what Hon. Nwokolo has given to us today, is more than one hundred cups and would last long for each of us to feed.”
