Just before he left Delta State on Sunday, a day after burying his mother in a modest “Made in Nigeria” ceremony in Agbor, Central bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor, Godwin Emefiele, paid spontaneous visits to a couple of motherless babies and charity homes in the state, where he donated all the gifts he received from friends and well wishers.

According to the UnofficialCBN social media handles (Twitter: @UnofficialCBN | Facebook: Unofficial: Central Bank of Nigeria | Instagram: UnofficialCBN), each of the homes received a pick-up van filled with assorted foods and gifts including bags of rice, vegetable oil, milk, drinks, beans, onions, garri, spaghetti, cooking condiments and chickens. Emefiele also donated a cow each to the homes.

All through her adult life in her small Agbor community, the deceased Alice Emefiele, 94, endeared herself to her people by constantly giving and supporting the less privileged. In her honour, the family has launched the Alice Emefiele Foundation to continue her good work.
