A House of Representatives-elect for Isuikwuato/ Umunneochi Federal Constituency, Chief Amobi Ogah, has pledged to henceforth pay the sum of N100,000 as monthly allowance to a spinal cord injury victim, Oscar Okoli.
Okoli had an auto accident in 2012 along Umuikaa-Ntigha axis of the Enugu-Port Harcourt Expressway and had since been bedridden.
His family, according to reports, had taken him to University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital (UNTH), Enugu where he underwent a series of surgeries that could not make him regain his health.
However, when the news of Oscar’s worsening health condition was broken to Ogah in February this year, he visited the ailing young man and donated the sum of N50, 000 for his upkeep
Then on Sunday, he attended a church at the Methodist Church Lekwesi and used the opportunity to announce the monthly allowance of N100, 000 to the spinal cord injury patient to the delight of the congregation, as well as l joy and happiness of his mother.
