He described late Maj. Isaac Boro as a selfless son of the area and the Ijaw nation at large who fought for the emancipation of his people.

The lawmaker called on Niger Delta people to uphold the virtues the late freedom fighter stood for.

The lawmaker thanked the people of his constituency for their steady support and urged them to also stand behind Gov. Douye Diri, who he said is determined to play his part in the realisation of the ‘Boro dream’.

Also speaking,  Fafi’s wife, Ebimoboere, stated that the essence of the reach out was to identify with the people in their moment of need and pledged to always stand by them.

She appreciated them for supporting her husband and appealed to them not to relent, assuring that as a family they will always stand by them.

Responding, some of the beneficiaries thanked the lawmaker and his wife for their constant show of love.

Domo Karina who spoke on behalf of the beneficiaries urged other political office holders to emulate Fafi.

Motorcycles, foodstuffs and cash were distributed to beneficiaries selected across the constituency.

Also, infrared thermometers were donated to four health centres in the area to strengthen the surveillance for the COVID-19.
