Recently, the traditional ruler of Adazi-Nnukwu, Igwe Prof. Augustine Ik. Obiekezie (Adama Adazi-Nnukwu) concerned about the negative effects of Coronavirus pandemic on indigenes and residents of Adazi-Nnukwu, called for support from the town’s union and well-to-do individuals to provide palliatives/succor to their sufferings.

However, as a king who enjoys the massive support of his people, Adama’s call received a tremendous response by the good spirited indigenes of Adazi-Nnukwu, world-over.

While the donations continued overwhelmingly, the Senator that represented Anambra Central in the 8th Assembly whom Adama (few years ago) crowned the Nwannedinamba Adazi-Nnukwu, Senator Dr. Victor Umeh OFR (Ohamadike Ndigbo) in his magnanimity and love for Adazi-Nnukwu also joined in making donations towards the success of the project.

Consequently, bags of rice, cartons of noodles, cartons of tomato pastes and beans were acquired and today, distributed to the various homes enlisted by their respective kindreds.

The leadership of the town has also commenced mass sensitization exercises through the various churches in the community to enlighten the people about the COVID-19 preventive measures as introduced by the World Health Organization and other governments’ directives towards maintaining a safe and healthy society, particularly in Adazi-Nnukwu.
