Non-indigenes petition Obiano, Ekwunife, others over neglect in palliatives sharing

EU donates PPEs to 25 centres in Nigeria
The Association of Non-Indigenes in Anambra State (ANIAS) has petitioned Governor Willie Obiano, Senators Uche Ekwunife and Ifeanyi Ubah, alleging marginalisation during distribution of palliatives in the state.

Aggrieved members of ANIAS who also commended the large number of humanitarians in Anambra yesterday in Awka, however, lamented their exclusion in sharing of food items, hygienic and other Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) to their fellow human beings, especially their neighbours.

In the petition, copies of which were sent Senator Stella Odua and other members of the state and Federal House of Representatives, they pleaded that whatever was given to indigent persons be extended to them, saying they needed assistance to overcome hunger and other effects of coronavirus pandemic.

They disclosed this in a statement issued by the National President, Ferguson Okpala, Public Relations Officer (pro), Okechukwu Maduforo, Secretary and Students Youth Leader, Solomon Edet and Godwin Otu, in Awka.
Meanwhile, the European Union (EU) through the United Nations Office on Drug Control (UNODC) has supported access to treatment by drug users amidst COVID-19 lockdowns with the donation of personal protective equipment (PPEs) and other supplies to 25 drug treatment centres in Nigeria.”

Representatives of EU and UNODC delivered the equipment and supplies to YouthRise, a non-governmental organisation (NGO) providing community-based treatment services to female drug users in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.

A statement issued by its Outreach and Communications Officer, Sylvester Tunde Atere, disclosed that the donation was to support COVID-19 prevention among drug users in the country.

The items include facemasks, gloves, hand sanitisers, liquid soap for hand washing and infrared thermometers, as well information, education and communication (IEC) materials in English, Yoruba, Igbo, Hausa and Pidgin English.
