COVID-19: Idjerhe Kingdom gets food items from Nani Featured

EXECUTIVE Director, Finance and Administration (EDFA) of the Delta State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission (DESOPADEC), Olorogun (Barr) John Nani has donated food items to the people of Idjerhe kingdom in Ethiope West Local Government Area of the State, as part of efforts to cushion the effect of the 14-day lockdown on them.

This is just as he and other officials, including the Ethiope West Council Chairman, Hon. Solomon Golley, paid a

surprise visit to the border between Delta and Edo states, to monitor the level of compliance of the lockdown at the Delta State border.

The lockdown which was ordered by the State Government, is part of efforts to curb the spread of the corona virus pandemic in the State.

Nani, an indigene of the area while presenting the items to representatives of the people drawn from the various communities, enjoined them to ensure that the items got to the beneficiaries, adding that the hardship currently being faced by them, was an unfortunate fallout of measures taken by government to prevent the spread of the pandemic.

Items donated to the people most of who are the aged, widows and youths include; bags of rice and beans, cartons of noodles and cows.

At the Ologbo border between Delta and Edo states, the EDFA and the Council Chairman who expressed satisfaction with the level of compliance, commended the security operatives for maintaining the lockdown, with a promise to take care of their daily welfare, with Golley ensuring them that more health workers would be posted to the area, to test and ensure that those exempted from the lockdown, do not come into the state with the virus.
