On behalf of President Bola Tinubu, The Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma has flagged off the distribution of truckloads of rice donated to members of the Southeast zone of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN).
The donation was a personal donation made by the President to CAN in the five South East states of Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu and Imo, as part of Christmas and palliative gift item to cushion the biting effects of the economic hardship occasioned by economic reforms by the current administration.
Uzodinma noted that the President took bold reform steps “to recover our economy and reduce the hardship in the country, strengthen the naira, grow our economy, create jobs for the unemployed and generally make Nigeria great again.”
Handing over the trucks of rice to the Imo State Chairman of CAN, Rev. Eches Divine Eches, at the Owerri Secretariat, the governor urged the CAN members to pray fervently for Tinubu and the success of his administration.
