The event was witnessed by some of the over 600 indigent beneficiaries and their parents, who showered encomiums on Hon. Chike Okafor as well as offered hearty prayers for his well being and upwardly mobile destination.
Speaking on the occasion, a constituent, Mr. Kingo Anyanwu admonished the beneficiaries to be of good behaviour and maximize this unique gesture by studying hard and coming out in flying colours, the best way to appreciate their benefactor. In the same vein, Rev. Obigbo commended the lawmaker for his commitment and steadfastness to this Social contract, which he went into, with the people, despite all odds and while calling on other leaders to emulate him, prayed that God should renew his energy and zeal as well as replenish his resources abundantly.
