The Government of Anambra Sate will from Wednesday, 1st April, 2020 begin the distribution of bags of rice to men and women in the state from the age of 60 years and above.
According to Governor Willie Obiano, “This is one of the many interventions the state government will be making to help cushion the economic and other effects of the coronavirus on Ndi Anambra”.
“We will share 200 bags of rice each to the 179 communities we have in the state. That’s about 35,800 bags in total. My government will announce further stimulus package in due course”.
“We call on the traditional rulers, the Presidents General, and ASATU women leaders to quickly send their list of beneficiaries which will be jointly signed by them to the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs immediately. Communities that send their list first will receive theirs immediately”, Governor Obiano said.
