Palliatives will be distributed to the poorest of the poor in Ebonyi State come Saturday, July 18th, 2020.

This was made known to the press by Governor David Nweze Umahi during a virtual Execo meeting held on Tuesday 14th July, 2020. Gov. Umahi ordered for immediate release and disbursement of palliatives donated to the State by President Mohammadu Buhari led administration.

While addressing Journalists, governor Umahi who ordered the secretary to the state Dr. Kenneth Ugballa to speak on his behalf said the disbursement of palliatives will start coming Saturday.

According to him: “We thank God that His Excellency is stronger and he is very sound in health.

“EXCO approved that the sharing of the Palliative that is meant for COVID-19, should start this coming Saturday. And it will be done ward by ward, polling units as already agreed. It will be left in the hands of the highest stakeholder of that polling unit, who will take responsibility, so that if anything happens, we can hold such person accountable.

“So, the long awaited palliative will be shared to Ebonyians. Some of these palliatives were mainly donated by Federal Government. The state government purchased greater part of the palliative and separate bodies and individuals equally donated to the state.

“His Excellency has approved that the sharing should start immediately, and the sharing is devoid of political party, devoid of any interest to ensure anybody, who is an Ebonyian and everyone in Ebonyi state” he said
