To cushion the effects of the lockdown, due to the ravaging coronavirus pandemic, the Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, has commenced the immediate disbursement of cash to some low income persons across the 8 Local Government Areas of Delta Central Senatorial District.

The 8 Local Government Areas in the Senatorial District include: Ethiope East, Ethiope West, Okpe, Sapele, Ughelli North, Ughelli South, Udu, and Uvwie.

The exercise which commenced in Kokori Inland, in Ethiope East LGA, on Sunday, witnessed the handing over of the cash palliative to individuals in their homes, without discrimination.

According to the Head of the Committee set up to coordinate the disbursement, Hon. Innocent Emosivwe Anidi, 200 households, from each Ward in the Senatorial District will receive N5,000 per household. There are 85 Wards in the 8 Local Government Areas that make up Delta-Central.

In a brief message to the Constituents, Senator Omo-Agege appealed to the people not to trivialise the coronavirus disease, urging them to always obey government’s directives on measures aimed at containing the spread of the deadly virus.

He said that the cash disbursement has been designed to reach the people directly, and not through proxies.

He equally called on the people to continue supporting and praying for the President Muhammadu Buhari administration, in its efforts to take Nigeria to the Next Level of development, even as the nation battles to stop the spread of the pandemic, which has ravaged several other nations globally.
