The lawmaker representing Nnewi North constituency in Anambra state, Nonso Smart Okafor, has built a house for three childless widows who were living in a dilapidated mud house.
The lawmaker said he learnt about the ageing widows' terrible living condition earlier this year, adding that they suffered severe cold whenever it rained.
The widows, who were married to the same man, were given hope of comfort when Honourable Okafor visited them in the dilapidated mud house.
The lawmaker promised to change their situation and fulfilled the promise.
He said: "Women of their age live in houses built by their children but since they were unfortunate to have any, I decided to be a son to them. And what sons do for their mother I promised to do for them."
According to Honourable Okafor, the three-bedroom bungalow project started in March and was delivered in May.
The house has been commissioned and handed over to the three widows.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that Chiagozie Nweke, a physically challenged boy, had brought good fortunes to his family after he was found by Honourable Ipoola Ahmed Omisore, a former Lagos lawmaker.
The former lawmaker decided to help the little boy after a photo of him emerged on social media, in which he could be seen hawking sachet water despite his disability.

Anyichuks Foundation announced its intention to build a two-bedroom apartment for the family which will commence almost immediately.
Before now, the foundation undertook the scholarship of the little boy from primary four (4) through university level.
Apart from the scholarship, one million naira was also given to the boy's parents to start a trade with professional supervision and advise from business experts to ensure the success of the business.
