Delta State First Lady, Dame (Mrs.) Edith Okowa, has commissioned a water borehole project at The Nigeria Prison, Ogwashi-uku in fulfilment of her birthday promises.
Dame Okowa, who performed this commissioning exercise on Monday at Ogwashi-Uku, said she built the bore hole to enable the inmates have a good source of potable water, and in fulfillment of her promise to the inmates during her birthday celebrations at the prison on June 1.
According to her, “It is my duty to give to the poor and also to render help to the helpless” adding: “I want to dedicate this water bore hole project to God Almighty for the grace upon my life and for using me as an instrument of redemption.”
In a short exhortation, the Wife of the Secretary to the State Government, Mrs. Kevwe Agas, admonished the inmates to always look up to God as he alone would send helpers to humanity.
Some of the Prison Inmates applauded Mrs. Okowa for fulfilling her promise to them during her birthday celebrations, describing her as a true woman of her word.
They called on other well-meaning Deltans and Nigerians to emulate her good gestures so as to make life better for the needy and downtrodden.
