ASABA – The Senator representing Delta North senatorial district and chairman, Senate Committee on Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, Affairs, Senator Peter Nwaoboshi, added smile to the faces of people living with disability when he empowered 40 of them with cash.
The beneficiaries drawn from the nine local government areas of Delta North were fed and given N25,000 each to help enhance their living conditions. The occasion was held at the senator’s residence in Asaba.
Welcoming the beneficiaries in his speech, Nwoboshi thanked them for coming and encouraged them not to despair in their conditions, noting that regardless of their challenges, “we are all equal before God.”
He stated that his decision to empower them was to add a little spark to their lives, noting: “We shall all die empty but we can only be remembered by our good deeds to the society.”
Responding on behalf of others, their chairman, Mr Ojeme Monday, related the modality used in drawing the list of beneficiaries, saying four members, each representing the deaf, blind, cripple were picked from every local government with their chapter leaders.
