The Chairman, Aniocha South Local Government Area, Hon, Pastor Jude Chukwunwike has gifted one bag of rice each to Council staff as Christmas approaches.
This is the second since assumption of office in March , 2021 that the chairman has put smiles on the faces of the staff at Christmas in 15 years
The 2022 edition of the exercise is the second phase and it surpassed expectations of many considering the additional provision of chicken to the package.
Shortly after receiving her bag of rice, Mrs Roseline Igbodo, Head of Environmental Department, described the gesture as an unprecedented civil service jinks breaker.
She noted that the council boss is a leader who matches words with commensurate action. “He has done more than his contemporaries. Here in Aniocha South Local Government Area, nobody will say that he or she will not enjoy Christmas.
“When we heard that the chairman through the Department of Agriculture was rearing chickens, we thought that those birds will be sold to us at a subsided rate but to our greatest surprise, we got chicken for free, we got rice and extra money to cook this Christmas.
“He will go higher. We pray that one day he will become Delta State Governor”, the HoD prayed.
Mrs. Mudama Stella Nkechi of the Administration Department commended Chukwunwike, stressing that the exercise is not just people-oriented but a lasting imprint of kindness to civil servants of Aniocha South extraction.
The host of beneficiaries prayed that God Almighty will continue to uphold the chairman.
