Olorogun Jaro Egbo, the Coordinator of the Subsidy Palliatives Committee in Delta State and Special Adviser to the Governor on Transportation, has revealed that the state government will soon initiate another phase of palliatives distribution to alleviate the challenges brought about by federal government economic reforms.

Speaking on Wednesday as a guest on the Orientation Panorama Platform on Voice of Delta Radio 97.9FM Asaba, Egbo highlighted Governor Rt Hon Sheriff Oborevwori’s directive to ensure comprehensive coverage of all communities and prioritize the distribution of food items to those in genuine need.

Despite acknowledging the logistical challenges, particularly the high cost of transporting palliatives to riverine communities, Egbo commended Governor Oborevwori’s unwavering support and commitment to ensuring the smooth commencement of the next distribution phase.

He assured that extensive publicity would precede the distribution, utilizing both traditional and social media platforms to maximize awareness.

Egbo urged low-income earners and struggling families across the state to prepare for the forthcoming statewide distribution, emphasizing the government’s deliberate efforts to alleviate the suffering caused by subsidy removal.

Additionally, he disclosed the appointment of trusted stakeholders, including leaders of social institutions such as churches, mosques, schools, and elected representatives, to oversee and coordinate the distribution of palliatives across all local government areas.

Egbo reiterated the state government’s dedication to supporting all Deltans, pledging to sustain quarterly distribution of palliatives contingent upon the regular supply of foodstuffs and availability of resources.

Furthermore, he mentioned ongoing efforts to devise strategies for distributing fertilizers, cassava stems, agricultural seedlings, and other forms of assistance to farmers through recognized associations and cooperative societies statewide.

“Our amiable governor, Rt Hon Sheriff Oborevwori, is very much interested in the socioeconomic wellbeing of all Deltans.

“He promise our people more dividends of democracy, and we are working very hard to deliver on his electioneering campaigns promises.

“We distributed Palliatives previously, but the next round of distribution will soon commence. Adequate publicity shall be deployed to enable government reach target audiences.

“Our focus is on struggling families, poor widows, indigent students and all others who are truly finding it difficult to feed themselves. And we are doing just that.

“The subsidy Committee is chaired by the Secretary to the State Government, Dr Kingsley Emu, and he has directed that the Palliatives must get to the right people, at the right time, and across the 25 local government areas.

“As the state coordinator, am networking with all local government coordinators of the committee to ensure that our people benefit reasonably from the exercise.”
