Former lawmaker representing Owerri west state constituency, Innocent Ekeh (Obulimba), has donated some COVID- 19 materials to members of the Correspondents’ Chapel of the Nigerian Union of Journalists(NU), Imo state council.
He called on governments at all levels and other public spirited individuals to consider doing the same for the union.
Ekeh pleaded with the journalists to accept his donation as his widow’s mite and gave out detergents, face masks, hand sanitisers and N50, 000 to the chapel. He has also extended the gesture to other chapels in the state.
He noted that journalists like health workers were vulnerable group of people in the war against COVID- 19 because they also faced different risks while trying to visit danger spots in the course of bringing information on the virus to the public. He called on governments, individuals, and organisations not to neglect this vulnerable group.
