Ebelechukwu Obiano, wife of the Anambra State governor, is empowering the physically challenged in the state by giving them prosthetic limbs
EBELECHUKWU Obiano, wife of Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State is set pour more of her milk of human kindness to about 200 physically challenged people in Anambra State by giving them prosthetic limbs. Ebelechukwu’s kind gesture is coming on the heels of the impressive showing of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, led by Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra, its BOT chairman, in the just concluded general elections. She will distribute the second phase of prosthetic limbs to the physically challenged beneficiaries on Tuesday, April 2.
Ebelechukwu, according to a press statement sent to Realnews at the weekend, has come under another malicious attack aimed at damaging her credibility. Purveyors of falsehood on social media have once again concocted another lie that she slapped someone even as she is in faraway United States of America where she went to visit her children. Obiano, who is expected back in the country early in the week in readiness for the all-important function of prosthetic limb distribution to the physically challenged which will hold at the Women Development Centre, Awka, is once more target of another campaign of calumny. The first phase of the prosthetic limb distribution programme sponsored by the wife of the governor held before the Christmas in 2014 had over 300 beneficiaries.
“The fact that some criminal elements will go to any length to manufacture lies with the intent to cause the government of Obiano harm, including denigrating the wife is a cause for concern to discerning Ndi Anambra and should be condemned. Such frivolous writings are irresponsible and have no place in the new Anambra being fashioned by the governor ably supported by his wife, and Ndi Anambra,” the statement said.
Ebelechukwu is the founder and focal Person of the Caring Family Enhancement Initiative, CAFÉ, a non-profit, non-partisan pet project which has mandate to care for the less privileged and reduce women-child vulnerability while maintaining the dignity of the physically challenged amongst other programmes. Since coming on stream, CAFÉ has done a lot to mobilise and give support and succour to indigent families as well as the physically challenged, through its welfare packages.
Also through CAFÉ, she supports the welfare programmes of the Obiano’s administration which promotes strong and healthy families through assisting and supporting vulnerable groups amongst Ndi Anambra to feel the impact of government and eventually contribute to the socio-economic development of the state.
