To help put smile on the faces of the less privileged in this Easter season and to ease their pains over the Coronavirus stay at home, the Edo State attorney general and commissioner for Justice, Prof. Yinka Omorogbe has distributed foodstuffs and other consumables to 300 migrant returnees, widows and the vulnerable in Benin City, Edo State.
Prof. Omorogbe said, “I am moved by the challenges faced in various Nigerian homes occasioned by the near total lockdown directive of government to control the further spread of the dreaded Coronavirus pandemic. I have had many complains of hardship by our people as a result of the lockdown policy newly introduced by government, and I felt this is the best thing I can do to ease their challenges ”
The attorney general urged everyone to support government’s initiative on providing palliatives for the people.
Some of the beneficiaries disclosed that the gifts would go a long way to cushion the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.They appealed to others who have the resources to help the indigent by emulating Omorogbe’s kind gesture.
Mrs Edosa Rita, one of the beneficiaries said, “l am moved by the gesture of such a man to identify with the less privileged”.
She explained that, the lockdown directive is beginning to exact serious hardship on the living standard of the people.
