He also said that it was another effort of the Rescue Mission led by Owelle Rochas Okorocha towards ensuring there is a focused effort towards uniting and mobilizing Ndi-Igbo in a bid to achieving a more cohere and unified people with an articulated blueprint to building a strong regional sustainable economy.
According to the release, Prince Madumere averred that Her Excellency, Ugo Nneoma Nkechi Okorocha has given the needed leadership in ensuring that Igbo women who are known for their industry and resilience are re-invigorated through various empowerment programmes especially her “She Needs a Roof (SNARP)” programme, which has provided about two hundred indigent widows across twenty-seven local government areas of the State with tastefully furnished two bedroom apartments with financial empowerment.
