UKE town is blessed. We pride ourselves in our progressive nature and brotherly cooperation. There is a need to find comfort from within when challenges arise.
Traditional ruler of Uke Kingdom, HRM, Igwe, Charles Agbala, started this at Uke Town Hall during the distribution of relief materials as COVID-19 palliative to support the needy, especially widows to mitigate the challenges of the lockdown caused by COVID-19 pandemic.
Igwe Agbala said the gesture was in collaboration with some donors from the town who cherished the welfare of the community, especially the vulnerable. “We understand the current state of the situation around us, some people feel the pain more than others. It is for this purpose that we offer palliatives to ameliorate the pressure of the lockdown.”
Igwe Agbala appreciated Gov Obiano for earlier sending palliatives to the elderly of the community and in the process of the town receiving palliative for the town’s youths. He also appreciated other donors who made it happen and encouraged others to emulate them.
The monarch urged his people to be strong at this time, “There is no challenge without end, coronavirus came plaguing the world, so also will it disappear, nothing lasts forever. We shall overcome the pressure of COVID-19. There is no challenge without an end.”
President-General, Uke Town Union, Chucks Igboawua, appreciated the gesture of the donors and called on the wealthy in Uke Town to always be their brother’s keeper. He advised the people of his community to heed to the state government directive as regards the regulations concerning COVID-19 that doing so ensures a pandemic-free society.
Mrs. Ann Okonkwo, Community Women Leader, Uke town, sees the palliative as a nice one and prayed that God will reward everyone that contributed to making it happen “Igwe Agbala is a man that cares for his people.
Without him, this wouldn’t have been possible, besides he was here to oversee the event, give advice and encourage us in this trying period. I would like to advise other women to adhere to the directive in the fight against COVID-19 and try as much to keep their children safe.”
Items distributed were bags of rice and salts.
