A Cleric, Apostle Vinning Cookeygam has said that those hijacking palliative meant for the indigent citizenry of the country to cushion the effect of COVID-19 pandemic will attract curse from God.
This is coming against the backdrop of the report of Tai Local Government Ward Councilor in the state, being accused of hijacking 10 of 100 bags of rice meant for the vulnerable in his ward.
Although, the Rivers State Palliatives Committee had already begun an investigation into the report.
Meanwhile, Cookeygams, founder, Christ Transforming Power Evangelical World Outreach, on Tuesday said, “Anyone with the capacity to sustain self under the stress of COVID-19 but goes to hijack Covid-19 palliatives meant for the indigent and vulnerable is attracting curse and damnation upon self.”
The cleric who was among the five-man local palliative sharing committee when the state’s food items go his native Opobo/Nkoro local government area noted that the volume in which the Rivers government is dispensing the food items would good a long way in alleviating the hunger among the vulnerable if the sharing is done with sincerity.
