 IN LINE with the call by federal and state governments for the rich in the society to help less privileged Nigerians, a retired civil servant and community leader from Awkuzu, Oyi LGA of Anambra State, Frank Oramulu has spent N250, 000 in provision of fire woods, cash and food condiments to 80 widows, orphans and the aged in his community.

Speaking to the beneficiaries in his residence last Saturday, Chief Oramulu who retired from Anambra State Local Government system noted that he called his people to know their immediate needs and majority replied that they needed fire wood.

The community leader stated, “I personally noticed that most of them needed fire wood because they no longer go to the bush to fetch it due to activities of herdsmen and I cannot provide these people with gas cylinders because they are not used to using that as to avoid fire out breaks if they abused it. This is why I bought three tipper loads of fire woods and this is according to their immediate need.”

Oramulu in addition to the fire wood, shared cash and some food items to them, noting that he would prefer that charity should begin at home.

The retired civil servant thanked all those who donated to the state and federal government, noting that he would make his own contributions to the local and the state govt, but preferred to first take care of his relations and some indigent ones in Awkuzu.

He commended Governor Willie Obiano for the way he has handled the COVID-19 pandemic in the state and urged him to ensure that Anambra State Water Corporation comes back to work, stating that public water supply is one of the most important needs of ndi Anambra.

There were jubilation dances by beneficiaries and their relations during the sharing of the palliatives.
