Members of the main opposition party, People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Anambra State have raised N125 million for COVID-19 intervention.
The funds raised will be used to help the less privileged families and persons in Anambra while the COVID-19 pandemic rages on.
The initiative, led by Mr. Peter Obi, the immediate past governor of Anambra State and vice presidential candidate of the party in 2019 general elections, is a leading intervention and the first of its kind by any political party in Nigeria since the COVID-19 pandemic began.
Some major contributors to this fund include elected officials in the PDP from Anambra like Senator Stella Oduah, Lawmaker Douglas Egbuna, respected business leader, Mr. Valentine Ozigbo, and several others. The PDP leaders collectively pledged a total of N125 million.
