Covid-19: Ogah urges steadfastness as he delivers Covid 19 palliatives to Abians


Honourable Minister of State, Ministry of Mines and Steel Development, Dr Uchechukwu Sampson Ogah, yesterday delivered several container-loads of sundry items to the people of Abia State in support of the vulnerable people in order to cushion the negative effects of measures aimed at containing the Novel Coronavirus on the people.

Speaking after the delivery of the different container- loads of rice, beans, noodles and pastas, including hand sanitizers and other protective materials, at his Onuaku, Uturu, country home, Dr Ogah called on all Abians not to be disenchanted by the reality of the COVID19 pandemic and continuous spread, but instead, remain steadfast in the hope and knowledge that the spread of the ravaging pandemic will soon come to an end.

He also enjoined them to continue to abide by the regulations and guidelines provided by Governments at all levels and other health sector stakeholders and professionals to remain safe.

He said it was the high level of vigilance and support Abia people have adopted and offered to their leaders in the fight against the dreaded virus that have ensured that the State was still, more or less, free of the virus.

He praised the people for their support and promised to continue to partner with them whenever a common project is needed or the need arises.

The container- loads containing the palliatives were distributed to the whole 17th Local Governments, the APC Ward and LG chairmen, over 200 pro-groups, religious units, communities and villages.

It will, however, be recalled that even before venturing into partisan politics, Dr. OGAH, as a private entrepreneur and industralist,aways found the need to distribute items of welfare and support to Abians, especially, at festive periods or any time he was opportune to spend times in the State after his many occasions.

As he did for ordinary Abians, he also did for institutions of learning at all levels in Abia State and the neighboring State; he also did for healthcare providers, Orphanages and special places like when he bought and provided free- of- charge prostatitic limbs for several amputated victims.

He also extended grants and start- up capitals to business people, transporters and even to the several State Government initiatives aimed at empowering indigenes of Abia State.

While we thank this distinguished leader and selfless servant of our time for his acts of large-heartedness for the people of our dear State, we remain hopeful that his best days in Abia are not far away.
