2 min read

The Sir Emeka Offor Foundation, (SEOF) has donated 1,000 bags of rice and 200 wrappers to Police Officers’ Wives (POWA), Anambra State Police Command.

Speaking weekend during the presentation at the Police Command Headquarters, Amawbia, Chief of Staff of Sir Emeka Offor, AIG (Rtd), Mr Chris Ezike said his principal’s quest to giving hope to the hopeless had spanned for over 30 years. 

He said, “SEOF stands on a tripod of health and human services, educational development as well as empowerment. If you empower people and take care of their physiological needs, you’re most likely to remain at the preventive side of medicine instead of the curative.

“Our founder decided to elongate his 65th birthday after sharing 40,000 bags of rice and other logistics worth N1.8billion to widows in Anambra; as well as 400 bags of 25kg rice; 1,000 cartons of Indomie brand of noddles and 50 cartons of Izal disinfectant.

“Today is the turn of POWA because he appreciates the role of the Police force in the security of lives and property. A lot of security officers have died in active service leaving behind lots of widows at the mercy of the society. 

“The foundation had earlier donated educational materials to over 200 primary, secondary and tertiary institutions and public libraries in the state. Police academy and Police secondary schools are also benefitting from his books’ distribution.”

Also speaking, Sir Offor said he was physically present at the event in view of the passion he has for the Police and importance he attaches to their responsibilities.

“I was born and brought up by a police officer. My father rose to the rank of ASP. Growing up as police man’s son, I had personal likeness for policemen. 

“Unfortunately, efforts of these men who always remain awake while we’re sleeping are hardly appreciated. We’ll continue to support your efforts as much as we can. This donations will be now be yearly,” he added.

Responding, Commissioner of Police, Aderemi Adeoye appreciated Sir Offor and his Foundation for the kind gesture, assuring the force continued preparedness to securing lives and property of the people of the state.

“Your donations  to POWA, Anambra State chapter, especially for widows of our fallen heroes are appreciated. I’ve also extended the message to President of POWA, Dr Mrs Elizabeth Egbetokun and she was elated and appreciative.

“We identify with your vision and testify to the impact you’ve made through your foundation, praying God to grant you longer life and good health, as well as strengthen your foundation to affect more lives,” he stated.
