Presenting the items to the community, Oturubo, said the commodities include bags of rice and gallons of palm oil.

He said that their aim was to provide succour to the people of Okerenkoko in order to see them through any hardship that might be caused by the government’s directive of stay-at-home.

According to him, some people cannot eat daily without going out to do fishing. The support package will help them to survive the hardships created by this lockdown by the Delta State Government.
