Wives Of Board Members Of DESOPADEC Empower Over 100 Aged Persons In Warri – Independent Newspaper Nigeria

 In a bid to mitigate the effects of poverty and make life more meaningful in the oil-bearing communities in Delta State, the wives of the Board of Delta State Oil Producing Area Development Commis­sion (DESOPADEC), led by Mrs. Maureen Nani, have provided cash donations, food, medical supplies, and other humanitar­ian items worth several millons to the elderly in Warri and other riverine com­munities in Delta.

Mrs. Maureen Nani and Mrs. Flora Ochonoghor accompanied by the wives of the Board of DESOPADEC on Friday, last week, visited the Catholic Old People’s Home in Bowen Avenue, Warri South Lo­cal Government Area.

Speaking with newsmen, Mrs. Mau­reen Nani, wife of the Chairman of DESOPADEC, said the gesture was to commemorate the first anniversary of their husbands in office. “We are here on behalf of our spouses to extend our love and care to our senior citizens in these challenging times. We share the pain of our elderly, especially those in the riverine areas; hence, we are here to provide these donations to cushion inflation’s effect on the economy.”

Mrs. Flora Ochonoghor, the wife of the Managing Director and CEO of DESOPA­DEC, said this gesture would be extend­ed to other communities in the mandate area. “It is going to be a continuous exer­cise, and we will continue providing food and medical aid to the less privileged in our oil-bearing communities as well as IDP camps in Delta State,” she said.
