Excitement erupted at the Christian Ecumenical Center Abakaliki when Governor Francis Nwifuru announced a N100,000 Christmas package for Ebonyi State workers.

The announcement came during the flag-off of the pet project of the Wife of the President, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, at the centre. The jubilant crowd resonated with Governor Nwifuru’s statement that the state’s resources belong to the people and he wouldn’t let them suffer in poverty.

He explained that the N100,000 package, including a bag of rice, aims to ensure workers enjoy Christmas like their counterparts in other states. “Though it’s difficult,” he admitted, “the workers of this state must live like others during this festive season. This is a time to bless your neighbours and your homes.”

“As the leader of the state,” he continued, “it’s my duty to be a blessing to everyone. I’m using the state’s money, not my own, that I was elected to manage. Since I took office, I’ve worked with the caucus and principal officers to ensure Ebonyi workers have something to celebrate.”

He added, “I will meet with local government chairmen to guarantee every worker in this state receives the N100,000 Christmas gift.”

Civil servants interviewed praised the governor’s gesture, highlighting its potential to ease the economic burden caused by rising prices during Christmas.
