Rivals steal glory from Anambra widow empowerment scheme

16 October 2014, 08:03Okoro Chinedu

Lagos - A pressure group said to be backing President Goodluck Jonathan alleged opponents had sought to gain mileage from a programme it initiated to empower widows in Anambra State.

“We wish to bring to note that some mischief makers are trying to tap into the success of the Women for Change/4J widows empowerment project, by laying claims of involvement. We are cautious on wrong claims so that the project is not smeared or tarnished by persons who do not bear the same philanthropic ideologies as we do,” 4J, the group, said in a statement National Coordinator, Dr Emeka Eze, made available to media.

It nonetheless said it was undetterd by the alleged hijacking of the project and would continue empowering the widows.

“4J is an NGO founded by Prince Arthur Eze, a philanthropist, will continue to collaborate to assuage the burdens of widows and children in the Nigeria. The First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, was the special guest on the memorable occasion which witnessed a large turn out, and presented to widows of the South-east states, with empowerment material.

"However, 4J for Jonathan is also a South-east volunteer initiative positioned to unite and align all President Goodluck Jonathan’s friends, fans, and followers all over the South-east zone and the country in general.”
