By Victor Bieni

ABUJA-  As part of efforts to give honour to whom honor is due, a reputable Non- Governmental Organization, the Corona TEMOEFA Foundation has said that the group will honour reputable Nigerians, Corporate organizations,  Bodies and Companies that helped in rhe defeat of the Covid-19 pandemic.

 The CEO of TEMOEFA Foundation disclosed this to our reporter in Abuja recently as the Pandemic continues to inflict havoc on the Nigerian population and torture her vulnerable citizens.

TEMOEFA is an international non-governmental organisation called The Mighty One Empowerment Foundation  and its fifty two Nigerian working partners under the platform of the Joint Forum for Development NGOs (JIFOD-NGOs).

 The group said it has concluded the  identification and nominations of individuals, companies, organisations and government agencies that have worked hard and donated heavily towards ending the spread of the disease as well as the extremely level of poverty and hunger it has induced on the society.

Announcing the names of those that are eligible for the merit awards, the president of the NGO, Mrs. Joy Ihuoma Inimgba, said the awards have been split into batches while those for Batch A are to receive their awards on Monday, 18th May, 2020.

She urged the approved awardees listed below to contact the Senior Programmes Manager (HQ), Mr. Samson Kworiya on 08086888375 or 08111289474 to agree on the venue for the award presentation.
Those cleared to receive the historic honour on merit are, for now, for three categories such the OPS Category, Lawmakers’ Category, and Government Agencies’ Category while nominees for the Foreign Organisations/Establishments are being collated.

Continuing, Mrs. Inimgba said these companies, personalities and agencies have proved to be caring and concerned about the welfare and survival of Nigerian under-privileged citizens and foreign residents in Nigeria, adding that this era is the time to show love to the dying needy in the society.

The NGO leader prayed God to heavily replenish the coffers of all those that have aided the survival of the less-privileged, stressing that her body would commence the third phase of distribution of palliatives to vulnerable groups before the end of May if things work according to plan.

She advised President Muhammadu Buhari to disburse palliatives to vulnerable Nigerians from the pool of huge funds that have been donated so far to encourage more donations from philanthropists and kind-hearted Nigerians and foreign organisations and multi-national conglomerates.

By her evaluation, Mrs. Inimgba observed that contrary to the wrong impression being given to the public by some armchair groups and persons, the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 headed by Barrister Boss Mustapha and the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) which has Dr. Chikwe Ihekweazu as it director-general have been very pro-active and responsive in the discharge of their functions to contain the spread of the epidemic.

She called on the Federal Government to increase the speed of disbursing funds and purchase of palliatives for distribution across the country, aimed at reducing the high rate of deaths arising from the devilish pandemic.

 “COVID-19 is a emergency issue of global challenge and world leaders need to unite to crush it and avoid the blame game”, she pleaded.
