Yesterday evening, Engr. Etido Inyang, the Chairman of the Ibom Power plant in his magnanimity, decided to respond to the cry for help of the inhabitants of Old Itu Road and other environs, whom the devastating flood of Tuesday sacked from their respective homes and destroyed properties worth millions.
and handing over the relief materials to the distresses people, he informed us that he had thought of providing just seventeen (17) mattresses and some food items to the people he thought are his immediate neigbours, but the number of people affected forced him to triple what his original intention was, having to now give out fifty one (51) mattresses and more food items to fifty one families, and cash gift to others. Engr. Inyang expressed optimism that the government of Governor Udom is a listening and responsible government that would come soon through the Chief of Staff and the Acting Commissioner of works to find a lasting solution to the perennial flooding as well as provide relief materials to many that are affected, even as we were made to understand that the one he just did was at his own personal capacity and felicitation to his people, Old Itu Road where he is from.
Speaking to one of the beneficiaries, who would want to remain anonymous, she expressed delight over the relief which she said would go a long way. She was over board with joy over the mattress and food items made up of a carton of noodle, 10kg bag of rice, beans, onion and many others. “I think say them no go give me o, I think say them go say I no from here”, the exited woman explained. She prayed that God would continue to bless the Engr, his family as well as to elevate him to a much higher position and blessings so that he would serve the people more. #EtidoInyangATrueNeighbourIndeed
