Governor Obiano to donate his Salary to Poor People in Anambra state


Gov. Willie Obiano of Anambra in Nigeria has decided to donate his salaries to the poverty stricken people of the society in the state.

Obiano said in Awka on Monday that he had sent a written instruction to his Principal Secretary, Mr Willie Nwokoye, to implement his wish with immediate effect.

“I have been donating it to the church since I became a governor,” he said.
He said that giving help to the less privileged in the society, through properly structured charity organisations, would make for more impact.

“After spending many fruitful years in leadership positions in the private sector, I earn enough pensions to sustain the needs of my modest family.

“So, I felt that my salary will be more useful if it puts a smile on the faces of some underprivileged members of society to whom the smallest amount of money will make a huge difference.”

The governor added that he and his wife had always been deeply involved in charity and philanthropic activities, long before they went into public life.
