The senator representing Anambra North senatorial district, Stella Adaeze Oduah has donated a brand new tricycle and N500, 000 cheque to a widow Mrs. Ruth Ngozi Ejimofor-Udeoba in Onitsha.
Mrs. Ruth Ngozi is a widow to late Mr. Ekene Udeoba a strong supporter of Senator Oduah and PDP member in Onitsha before he died.

Osemeka who was flanked by Mr. Ejiofor Egwuatu and Ezennia Nonso Chukwudebe senators aides said that the senator has accepted to see the widow’s children through to school and set her up in business and promised to ensure that the immediate deceased family would always taken care of.
He told Mrs. Udeoba that the gifts were essentially for herself and the upkeep of her children, saying that the Senator Oduah political family would always maintain the existing lines of communication to ensure that it constantly keeps tags with their progress.
Mrs. Udeoba full of happiness and joy thanked Senator Oduah for putting smiles to her face after the sudden death of her husband, saying that the gift and money showed that the lawmaker appreciates hard work and commitment.
