Govt Plans Widows’ Empowerment Programme

THE Delta State Commissioner for Information, Mr. Patrick Ukah has expressed the determination of the government to place some selected widows on monthly stipend so as to alleviate their sufferings and improve their living standard, saying that the widows economic programme may commence January, 2018.
He spoke during a rally by the members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Ward 9, Okpanam recently.
The Commissioner, while receiving over 300 decampees from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at the occasion, stated that Okowa administration has done marvelously well since its inception in office and said it was enough justification for the members of opposition parties in Delta State to join the PDP, adding that the PDP gives equal opportunities to everybody.
He urged the people to ensure that they cast their votes for the PDP come January, 2018, during the forthcoming council polls in the State.
