First Lady of Delta State, Dame Edith Okowa, has launched a water borehole project at the Nigeria Prison, Ogwashi-uku, Delta State, in fulfilment of her birthday promise.

Dame Okowa, who performed the inauguration exercise on Monday at Ogwashi-Uku, said that she built the borehole to enable the inmates have potable water, and in fulfillment of her promise to the inmates during her birthday celebrations there on June 1.

The First Lady said, “It is my duty to give to the poor and also to render help to the helpless. I want to dedicate this water borehole project to God Almighty, for the grace upon my life and for using me as an instrument of redemption.”

In a short exhortation, the wife of the Secretary to the State Government, Mrs. Kevwe Agas, admonished the inmates to always look up to God, as he alone would send helpers.

Some of the prison inmates applauded Dame Okowa for fulfilling her promise to them during her birthday, describing her as a woman of her word.

They called on other well-meaning Nigerians to emulate her good gestures so as to make life better for the needy and the downtrodden.
