Obi who was represented by a team of delegates comprising his former aides when he held sway as the chief executive of Anambra state, encouraged the hospitals and their health workers to continue to give their best in delivering good health to the public, especially in this time of global pandemic.
Each of the four hospitals received relief materials worth about two million naira, namely; 1 carton of 2000 face masks, 8 cartons of hand gloves (8000 pieces), 4 cartons of sanitizers (200 big containers of 500mls each) and 8 big cartons of paracetamol.

Appreciating Obi, the Methodist Archbishop of Umuahia, Most Rev Dr Chibuzo Opoko, spoke of him as a politician who upholds virtue and high moral standard.
Opoko said Obi is the kind of man Nigeria needs, being a man who fears God and does not discriminate against people.
On his part, the former governor reaffirmed his willingness to support the poor, the vulnerable and the health workers who are at the frontline of fighting the pandemic.
The move is part of his efforts to reach out and help people, organizations and health institutions through the coronavirus pandemic.
Obi was the vice-presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in the last presidential election.
He is famous for displaying uncommon integrity while in office.
