By Our Correspondent
In Ebonyi State Government has concluded plans to pay monthly stipends to widows across the state in its (the state’s) resolve to reduce poverty.
Making the disclosure on Friday was Governor David Umahi during the the grand finale of the three-day fasting and prayer summit organised by the state government in conjunction with the Christian Association of Nigeria at the Abakaliki township stadium.
Umahi,who encouraged the people of the state to work hard and depend on God, said God spoke to him to choose widows in the 13 local government areas of the state and place them on salaries.
“God spoke to me again to nominate widows in all the 13 local government areas and start placing them on small salary just like we do for physically challenged persons. Every month we pay about 85 physically challenged persons some salaries. We are also going to do that for widows,” he said in a statement on Friday by his Chief Press Secretary, Emma Anya.
Umahi,who assured that his government would continue to bridge the gap between the rich and the poor in line with his covenant with God, promised to complete in 2017, all the projects started by his administration.
He also vowed to add more vigour to the beautification of Abakaliki capital city.
“The beauty of Abakaliki has seen nothing yet. Men shall come from all works of life by Easter to behold the beauty of Abakaliki,” the governor promised.
The governor told the gathering that he had declared two- day public holidays for political appointees in the state to enable them meet with people in their respective communities on how best to achieve more in the state’s agricultural programme.
