People With Disabilities, PWDs, the vulnerable, the poor and widows, across the 20 Delta State Independent Electoral Commission, DSIEC Wards in Warri South Local Government Area, are to benefit from the second round of the oil subsidy palliatives released by the Federal Government and midwife by the Delta State Government.

 

 

The Coordinator of Warri South Local Government Oil Subsidy Palliative Committee, Hon. (Barr.) Oki David Eyitemi, made the disclosure today, Friday July 5, at the Warri South Council Main Secretariat in Warri, while supervising distribution of the palliative, which comprised of 25kg of 940 bags of rice and 25kg 150 bags of Garri.

 

The Warri South Coordinator of the Oil Subsidy Palliative Committee, who spoke to Fresh Angle International in an exclusive interview, explained: “Some couple of months ago, we were inaugurated by the immediate past Local Government (Warri South) Chairman, Dr. Michael Tidi. The first batch of palliative were evenly distributed. It is oil subsidy palliative to cushion the suffering brought by the fuel subsidy removal.

 

“The consignment was taken from Federal government to the state and the state is midwifing the sharing process or distribution as the case may be, through the office of the SSG - Secretary to the State Government, Dr. Kingsley Emu and his team. We have the local government committee and also the ward committee members.

“We had a meeting yesterday, and we had those representing the people living with disabilities, community leaders, the wards and former councilors in charge of the distribution. We warned them to be diligent in the distribution. Today, you can see them carrying the consignments and palliatives to their various wards as directed.

 

“The committee, comprises of myself, from the local government, the chairman of NULGE (Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees) Warri South, who is Secretary of the committee, representatives of the National Council for Women Societies, NCWS, the members representing Warri South Constituencies I and II in Delta State House of Assembly, Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN and political parties.”

 

The Secretary of Warri South Local Government Oil Subsidy Palliative Committee, Comrade Raymond Emiko, who also spoke to This Soaring International Digital Newspaper, said: “We are doing what we're doing based on our assessment of the initial distribution.

 

“The first round of distribution, was a success, so we adopted the same formula we used in the first distribution, to carry out the second phase of the distribution.

 

We are targeting a large number of persons at the ward level. Approximately or even more than 2,000 persons, so the various wards across the local government, will benefit from what we are doing today.”
