The Lawmaker representing Isiala Ngwa North State Constituency at the Abia State House of Assembly, Hon Ginger Onwusibe, has donated relief materials and cash worth millions of naira to his constituents as part of his contribution to alleviate the effects of the COVID-19 lockdown on them as necessitated by the global pandemic.
Presenting the items to his constituents through appointed representatives (so as to observe the social distancing directives) at the popular Ginger Sam Amanaha Mini Stadium, Amapu Ntigha, Onwusibe assured the people that the rampaging coronavirus is not a death sentence but admonished them to ensure they follow strictly government directives on the steps to prevent the virus from getting to the state and contain its unlikely outbreak. He further advised them to remain at home and wash their hands regularly in compliance with procedures established against the spread of the pandemic.
“I am aware that our people are being affected by the lockdown just as it is with others all over the world. It is therefore expected that we support the needy and the less privileged among us to keep them going at these difficult times.
