TRADITIONAL ruler of Ihiala, Thomas Obidiegwu has distributed relief materials to the needy in the five major wards of the town.

  The Oluoha as the traditional institution is known, assisted by his cabinet members gave out the items in his Ihiala palace.

  The items include 270 bags of 50 kg rice, 50 bags of salt and 50 cartons of tin tomatoes. Each ward was allotted 50 bags of rice each.

According to Igwe Obidiegwu, the relief materials are given the poor in the town to help reduce thegovernments’ burden of having to shoulder the responsibility alone.

“It is also to thank my people for their compliance with government’s directives to stay at home.”

  He commended the state government and Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Mr C Don Adinuba, a son of Ihiala, for tireless efforts at ensuring that coronavirus did not spread in the state.

  He urged the people to always sensitise their people on need for social distancing, sanitisation and staying at home to avoid contracting the deadly virus.

Former President-General of Ihiala, Mr Vincent Ezeaka, a lawyer, said that the items would get to the designated people because their names and phone numbers had been compiled.

Mr Bennett Nwokemodo, a councilor, said that the leaders of each ward would take the relief materials to their various wards and share them accordingly.

  One of the cabinet members, Chief Uche Nsofor, said that the Igwe and his members would do more, because they want to touch many lives in the town.

  Mr Jeff Obi, an indigene of the town and his wife, Mrs Margaret Obi said they were happy at the kindness of the Igwe and his council members.

“Widows, women and the poor benefited so much from the Oluoha and the good-spirited Ihiala indigenes, during this hardship,” Mrs Obi said.
