GOV. YAHAYA ADOZA BELLO THROUGH THE DG GOVERNMENT HOUSE BUILDS HOUSE FOR AN AGED WOMAN ABOVE A 100 YEARS OLD



GOV. YAHAYA ADOZA BELLO THROUGH THE DG GOVERNMENT HOUSE BUILDS HOUSE FOR AN AGED WOMAN ABOVE A 100 YEARS OLD


The Executive Governor of Kogi State, Alh. Yahaya Adoza Bello has successfully built a house for an aged woman above 100 years through the Director General, Government House, Alh. Dr. Umar Oricha Shaibu.


The old woman simply known as Inya Avosuahi was discovered in July 2020 by Alh. Dr. Umar Oricha Shaibu to be living in an old dilapidated mud house having a rusted and badly damaged zinc which served as covering over the house. Alh. Dr. Umar Oricha Shaibu came home for weekend and embarked on a tour to check on the well being of his people and that was how he came in contact with the woman. She was discovered at Ahache, an area which is part of the Ward the governor came from in Kogi Central.


Alh. Dr. Umar Oricha Shaibu had sighted the impoverished woman alongside his Media Team in July 2020 and he did not hesitate to forward the pictures and videos made during his tour of Agassa/Ahache/Okene-Eba Ward to the governor to view and address the many burning issues. His Excellency, Alh. Yahaya Adoza Bello quickly gave the positive nod that a house be built for the woman who was already well stricken in age and also living in abject poverty. Further instruction was also given to Alh. Dr. Umar Oricha Shaibu by the governor to henceforth see to the wellbeing of Inya Avosuahi and other aged women in her category.


The promise of a new house for Inya Avosuahi by the governor through Alh. Dr. Umar Oricha Shaibu was finally fulfilled on Saturday 17th October, 2020. Mama Avosuahi was well dressed and prepared for the status changing event by her only daughter who was also above the age of 60. Mama Avosuahi was worn one of the wrappers bought for her by Alh. Dr. Umar Oricha Shaibu to celebrate the last Sallah. For the very first time in her life, she was moved from her mud house having also a mud designed bed with a mat spread on it for to sleep. Alh. Dr. Umar Oricha Shaibu made sure a brand new wheelchair was used in carrying Inya Avosuahi inside a Viano Mercedes Benz Bus to transport her after taking permission from her neighbours who gave their approval and prayers for the old woman to be moved to her brand new abode.


Speaking at Iruvu-Ida, a place between Ahache and Agassa where the new house was built for Inya Avosuahi, Alh. Dr. Umar Oricha Shaibu said, "We give all the glory to God almighty who knew there was going to be a day like this even before the world began. God knew Inya Avosuahi was going to be a proud owner of a house before she leaves this world." He went on further to say that, "God the all knowing was well aware that His Excellency, Alh. Yahaya Adoza Bello will be the one to build her the house for her when he becomes the governor and today, what God destined for Inya Avosuahi has come to pass." Alh. Dr. Umar Oricha Shaibu gave special thanks to the governor saying, "If Alh. Yahaya Adoza Bello did not give me a job in his adminstration, maybe today this dream will not become a reality. The governor has helped many of us to also affect humanity positively because he was the one who took the bulls by the horns to vie for the highest office in Kogi State. Whatever we are able to achieve since the governor assumed office he is the next person we should appreciate after making obeisance to God." He added that, "My prayer is for God almighty to grant the governor more wisdom to carry on with governance and same time take him to unimaginable greater heights in life."


The people of Agassa/Ahache/Okene-Eba Ward trooped out en mass to join in the celebration activities organized to usher in Inya Avosuahi into her new home. The people thanked the governor and Alh. Dr. Umar Oricha Shaibu for building the Anyava Community Hospital which is few metres to the new house built for Inya Avosuahi. They appealed to the governor through Alh. Dr. Umar Oricha Shaibu for electricity and water to be made available at the newly built hospitable. Responding to their words of gratitude and appeal, Alh. Dr. Umar Oricha Shaibu promised that he will discuss the issue with the governor and believes that in next to no time their request will be granted. He added that the issue of water has become cogent as the borehole that will be dug for the hospital will also be channeled to the house of Inya Avosuahi which is just a stone throw away from the community hospital. The people sang different songs to praise God and also to eulogize the kind gesture displayed by both the governor and Alh. Dr. Umar Oricha Shaibu.
