Senator representing Anambra-North Senatorial District, Stella Oduah [image above] yesterday, December 20, presented gift materials to dozens of widows who assembled at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Odoakpu, Onitsha in Anambra State.
Ms. Oduah used the event to provide relief from the prevailing harsh economic situation in the country to the women of her constituency especially for the yuletide season.
According to Reverend Father Uzor of Sacred Heart, Senator Oduah’s generosity, selflessness and works of charity started long before she got engaged in politics and therefore could be said to be an apostolate.
Amidst dozens of widows who gathered to receive the gifts, the senator exhorted the widows not to lose hope.
She asked them to adopt Jesus Christ as their husband who is not only the giver of life but one who can take away life as he pleases.
Oduah said she remains optimistic about making life better for all the people domiciled in her Senatorial District, particularly the widows and the less privileged people during this yuletide season.
Ms. Oduah who is also a Princess, assured her constituents that the exercise will be a continuous one.
Oduah recently had her election to the Nigerian Senate upheld, in a period when political heavyweights in the opposition party are being thrown out of office.
