Nigerians are one in fight against COVID-19, our common enemy – Okorocha

Rochas Okorocha, the former governor of Imo State and current senator representing Imo West, has commended Nigerians and governments for fighting the Coronavirus pandemic like a common enemy in the country.

The senator noted that well meaning Nigerians had once again jettisoned political, ethnic and religious differences in order to conquer the battle against COVID-19 by ensuring that their neighbours did not go hungry during the period of lockdown in the country.

Okorocha, who stormed his Imo West senatorial District with bumper palliative items, said, with the ongoing development, Nigerians have once more demonstrated oneness as a people beyond partisan politics, describing the development as healthy.

Speaking while launching the palliative measures for the twelve Local Government Areas in his constituency, at the premises of Rochas Foundation College for Africa, Owerri, the Imo State capital, the former governor commended governments at all levels in the country and other patriotic Nigerians for showing quality leadership by sharing the COVID-19 occasioned palliative items to vulnerable Nigerians across the country without considering the political party they belong or the religion they adhere to.

According to him, the huge number of items he had brought was to ensure that the palliative items got to a good number of the targeted groups in each of the wards in the twelve Local Government Areas.

Represented at the event by his senior legislative aide and chairman of the central committee for the palliative, Steve Asimobi, the senator disclosed that he had set up a seven-man committee in each Local Government to ensure transparent and easy administration of the palliative items.

He thanked the security agents who assisted the committee to ensure that the lorries conveying the items to Owerri arrived safely and also helped to see that the items got to the Local Governments and then the wards for sharing, stating that the smooth administration of the palliative packages would not have been possible without the help of the security personnel.
