WIFE of the Governor of Anambra State and Fouder of Caring Family Enhancement (CAFÉ) initiative, Dr. Ebelechukwu Obiano, has
donated a bungalow and water borehole to an indigent widow, Mrs.
The beneficiary of the Mrs. Obiano’s gesture is a naïve of Umuehi Village, Akwaihedi in Nnewi South Local Government Area.
Speaking while commissioning the projects and handing over their keys to the beneficiary, the governor’s wife emphasized the need for strict compliance with all COVID-19 preventive measures.
According to her, the building was constructed and donated to Mrs. Ogbuanukwu in line with CAFE objectives, noting that 27 houses have been built and handed over to other indigent widows in different communities in Anambra State.
Mrs. Obiano, who is fondly known as Osodieme among ndi Anambra, also explained that COVID-19 pandemic has drastically changed the world by forcing people to stay at home. This, she stressed, makes the new two-bedroom bungalow so crucial in ensuring that the beneficiary stays at home and safe.
She used the opportunity to solicit support to CAFÉ activities from affluent people.
Earlier while welcoming Osodieme, Transition Committee Chairman for Nnewi South Local Government Area, Chieloka Okoye and Executive Assistant to Governor Willie Obiano on Community Liaison, Chukwuma Agbasinwa commended CAFÉ interventions which, they explained, have uplifted many indigent people in the state, irrespective of party affiliations.
Also speaking, the beneficiary, Mrs. Ogbuanukwu, who lost her husband about six years ago, said life has been so difficult for her and children and thanked the governor’s wife for providing them with shelter.
Others who lauded Mrs. Obiano for the gesture extended to their native are the monarch of Akwaihedi, Igwe Cornelius Onebunne, the Caretaker Chairman of Akwaihedi Town Union among others.
