She also made a donation to one of the community children’s homes in the State.

In her speech, Obiano’s wife, Ebelechukwu noted that the vision of IGP’s wife in empowering the widows was similar to her own vision of empowering the less privileged ones in the state, through her CAFE prograsmmes which she noted have cut across the length and breadth of the state with some beneficiaries getting new houses, other getting cash, while other got skill acquisition and take off capital.

Presenting the awards to her as Nnedioramma (a mother that is cherished by all), Distinguished Grand Citizen and Patroness of PCRC, Chairman of Police Community Relations Committee, PCRC, Onitsha Police Area Command, Sir Vic Agubisi (a.k.a Action Chairman), noted that the IGP’s wife has uplifted the status of police widows and motherless babies in various parts of the country.

Agubisi who is also the Deputy Chairman of PCRC, Zone 9, Umuahia, described her as a virtuous woman, woman of substance and woman of vision who is always bothered by the welfare of the downtrodden in the society and urged her to continue with her good works in that direction.

Flanked by other executive members of the PCRC, Agubisi declared: “any one who left her own family to reach out to other families is doing the will of God since according to him, the Bible says that it is better to give than to receive. I personally observed that some of the recipients shedded tears of joy as she was distributing the empowerment equipment”.
