He said it was good the government put in efforts to reduce the immediate pains of the masses ocassioned by the pandemic, but said it would be better to look beyond how to assist the them after the scourge was over.

Obi spoke through the Chairman of his COVID-19 Palliative Committee, Prof. Chinyere Stella Okunna who led other Committee members to present medical items to Mater Misericordae Hospital, Afikpo; Visitation Hospital, Umuchu,; Diocesan Hospital, Nnewi and St. Felix Hospital, Nnewi.

The four hospitals received cartons of face masks, drugs, hand sanitizers and hand gloves.

Obi who lauded the efforts of hospitals and their personnel in the fight against the pandemic, said the gesture was his own way of identifying with the suffering masses at this time of global distress.

Receiving the items, Manager of Diocesan Hospital, Nnewi, Rev Canon Emeka Igwilo thanked Mr. Peter Obi for his continued expression of love for humanity.

He said Obi’s “good and pleasant nature as well as manifest leadership qualities” had enabled him to succeed as governor of Anambra State and would assist him to succeed in his future endeavors.

Other members of Obi’s Palliative Committee are former Commissioner for Information, Anambra State, Chief Joe-Martins Uzodike; former Commissioner for Housing Anambra State, Dr. Patrick Obi and Special Adviser to Peter Obi, Barr Valentine Obienyem.

Obi had donated palliatives, including food items and in some cases cash to various communities in Anambra State and other areas during and after the lockdown.
