Nigeria: Ezu River - Uba Donates Bags of Sachet Water to Amansea Community

Awka — Senator Andy Uba has donated 5000 bags of sachet water to Amansea community.

The gesture is meant to ameliorate the water problem which arose in the community after dead bodies were dumped in Ezu River by unknown persons.

Representatives of Senator Uba led by Mr. Bright Nebedum and Dr. Charles Nweke of the Andy Uba Foundation, yesterday, handed over the bags of sachet water to the traditional ruler of Amansea, Igwe Kenneth Okonkwo, for distribution to the people.

Speaking during the ceremony, which took place at the Igwe's palace, Nebedum said that Senator Uba, who represents Anambra South in the Senate, deeply regrets the problem which the people are now experiencing following the destruction of Ezu River with decomposing bodies.

Nebedum said Senator Uba was offering assistance to the people as a way of solving their current challenges.

Responding to the gesture, Igwe Okonkwo, said the donation shows that Senator Uba was interested in the welfare of the people.
