According to him, “the times are indeed hard. The world peace and the existence of humankind have never been threatened like now. But, nothing should make anyone lose hope. The Coronavirus episode like those in the past would soon be forgotten, and life would go on again.
“I want to assure the good people of Niger East that I will continue to support them with everything necessary. In addition to the 900 bags of rice and the hand-washing detergents I have already donated, I will make available more palliatives for the people such as food packs and grains as well as necessary,” he added.
He commended the efforts of President Muhammadu Buhari and Governor Abubakar Sani Bello for the provision of palliatives to ameliorate the sufferings of the masses.
The lawmaker while felicitating with Christians at Easter, urged them to imbibe the virtues of love and self-sacrifice exemplified by Jesus Christ, and prayed against further spread of the Coronavirus pandemic in the country.
