Nigeria Female President Initiative, NFPI, has commended Deputy
President of the Senate, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, wife of the
President, Dr Aisha Buhari, Senator Oluremi Tinubu and Rochas Okorocha for timely distribution of COVID-19 palliatives to their constituents.
National Coordinator of the group, Comrade Felix Orhomuru gave the
commendation while reacting to the raging looting of CACOVID-19
palliative occasioned from alleged hoarding of the food items and
relief materials in various warehouses across the country.
He noted that during the lockdown, many Nigerians were in dire need of
food and President Buhari ordered the distribution of palliatives to
all Nigerians and the gesture was supported by contributions from
other well meaning Nigerians to cushion the effect of the lockdown on citizens as was done by the governments of various countries
“But unfortunately, some of our leaders disobeyed the presidential
directive and went ahead to hoard the COVID-19 palliatives and funds
in different warehouses across the country.
“It is the consequence of the selfish and greedy attitude of those
leaders that has prompted their constituents to go on rampage,
invading and looting the palliatives wherever they are hoarded and
The group however gave kudos to the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege who in his benevolence and commitment to the welfare of his Constituents distributed huge amount of money and handful palliatives during the lockdown to his Constituents.
Others who got the group’s nod were: wife of the President, Aisha
Buhari, Senator Oluremi Tinubu and Senator Rochas Okorocha for their
care for the welfare of their Constituents and urged other politicians and political leaders in the country to emulate them.
“We urge political leaders who have no feelings for the welfare of
their Constituents to learn a lesson from the bitter experience of
those who failed to make the palliative available to their people and have been exposed and disgraced by the revolutionary action of the people,” the group advised.
