“Being proactive is ultimate in times like this else things will get out of hands”, he set the record straight.
“I saw the need to dispense bags of rice to my people owing to the fact that as they observe the restriction in movement directive, those whose occupation is hand-to-mouth related will be the hardest-hit.
They won’t be able to carry out their individual businesses to make money to feed themselves and their families. It is a tough moment for them so I realized the need to support them so as to lessen the pressure”, he disclosed.
