The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), on Thursday, has donated the sum of three million naira (N3M) to the Anambra State COVID-19 Trust Fund in support of the state government’s fight against the spread of coronavirus in the state.
This was disclosed in a statement by APGA National Chairman, Ozonkpu Victor Ike Oye, on Thursday.
Oye explained that the donation was borne out of his personal support for Governor Willie Obiano’s proactive approach toward safeguarding the life and property of Ndi Anambra in this time of the global pandemic.
In addition, he said that APGA had joined in complementary and collaborative efforts with the government of Anambra State through the launch of ‘APGA Fights COVID-19’ initiative which saw APGA stakeholders pooling resources to ensure that the Ndi Anambra, especially the indigent are provided with free protective materials and food items which will be shared to the 326 political wards of the state, including orphanages and disabled persons.
According to the Party chieftain, “APGA is a caring political party. It is during desperate times like this that the true meaning of our party’s slogan of being our brothers’ and sisters’ keeper (onye aghana nwanne ya) becomes evident”.
“I have followed the activities of some of our members across all the states and I am happy that they have been donating both cash, food items and medical supplies to their local communities.
“We will continue to do more for the people collectively and individually”, he said.
The APGA National Chairman, however, prayed that God heal the nation and world of the deadly virus threatening the entire human race.
