TRADITIONAL Ruler of Umunya, Oyi Local Government Area of Anambra State, Kris Onyekwuluje has described `Gov. Willie Obiano as ‘God sent’ to people of Anambra.

  This is because of the governor’s planned packages to cushion the effects of `stay at home’ order on all as part of measures to stop the spread of corona virus pandemic.

  Igwe Onyekwuluje made the commendation after government announced that it would distribute bags of rice and other packages to the elderly from 70 and above.

  Each of the 179 communities in the state would receive about 200 bags of rice totaling 35,800 bags. The distribution would commence on April tomorrow.

  Onyekwuluje explained that Gov. Obiano’s administration had sustained the tempo of providing necessary measures to improve on the living standards of the people of the state.

  According to him, Gov Obiano applied a similar stimulus package during the last recession, which is why Anambra did not feel its impact.

  “Gov. Obiano injected money into the society then and created various avenues for youths and elderly to benefit.

  “This include tax exemptions, disbursement of N20 million to Community Choose-Your-Project Initiative.

  I urge every individual that is 70 and above to contact your President’s-Generals to do the needful,’’ IgweO nyekwuluje said.
