I will established charity Commission if elected Governor- Udensi

An Abia born security expert Mazi Chikwe Udensi, has said there's need for a Charity Commission to be established in the state in order to Carter for needs of people with special challenges in the state.

He said the commission must come to fruition if he's elected Governor in 2023 to care for the elderly, motherless babies and  psychiatrist hospitals .

Udensi spoke at Umunneochi Local Government Area on Wednesday during a welfare program for the elderly and palliative distribution for pensioners in Abia State.

According to him, the idea for the welfare programme for the Pensioners and the Elderly in the State was concieved when his attention was drawn to the plight of pensioners who are owed arrears of pensions for many months.

The Interpol Consultant however, posited that it was evil to owe people who had worked for the state, giving thirty five years in dutiful service yet could not be paid part of salaries saved as pension.

He said, "I featured in a radio program this morning, to tell our leaders that they should do something about the suffering of our people.

"Some people paid by the Government where busy insulting. They said it was politics to be giving palliative to pensioners who are owed by the government. 

"But I asked them if it where better to play politics and pay pensioners or be in government and owning them, which one is better?

"The charity Commission I have proposed will take care of the elderly, motherless babies and  psychiatrist hospitals, it would be run by church missions".

Also speaking Rotarian Mary Ebere Udensi, the President Rotary club of Abuja downtown district 9125, said the club in partnership with Build A New Abia (BANA) have put smiles on the faces of the needy in Abia, adding that with the partnership with Rotary International,a huge progress will be made to the glory of God.

She further revealed that cheques worth two million naira was issued for the pensioners in Umunneochi Local Government Area.

The programme was for the Elderly and distribution of palliatives to pensioners has gone through Arochukwu,Bende ,Ohafia , Umunneochi LGAs and it's expected to touch all the remaining Local Government Areas of Abia State.
