Reverend Jacob Udoh, a physically challenged cleric, yesterday donated a Peugeot Station Wagon to the All Progressives Congress (APC) national secretariat as part of his contribution to help in the running of the Party’s activities.
Speaking during the presentation, the cleric who was on a wheelchair said although he is not a politician by virtue of his position, he has became disillusioned by the deteriorating security situation and the way things are going on in the country.
Udoh who is also the National Secretary of the Association of Persons Living With disabilities, said what motivated him to make the donation is his hope in what the party promised to offer to Nigerians in its programmes and policies adding that Nigerians should give the party a chance.
“I go to villages to donate things to the people; I know what Nigerians are going through. There is a need for an honest approach for Nigeria’s problem which the politicians have failed to address in the last three years,” he said.
Receiving the donation on behalf of the party, the National Secretary of the party, Mai Mala Buni, said the donation by the cleric is worthy of emulation as it proves that there is ability in disability.
He also commended him for his concern for the welfare of Nigerians especially the poor who suffer most in the present situation.
Buni promised that the party will make good use of the vehicle to run the affairs of its secretariat. He added that what he did will go a long way in awakening other people about their responsibility in helping to bring solution to the myriads of problem affecting the nation.
