He said “It’s an ongoing thing, we didn’t just start today, today’s program is meant to alleviate the suffering of the people, to help them in keeping body and soul together, this is the one for the widows, we have done for people in some other sectors that needs to be supported.

“It’s a way of life, we are doing it continuously and we’ll not stop. The #5,000 monthly stipend we talked about, it’s about our poverty alleviation package of #5,000 per person, though it cannot go round at a time, we will ensure we maximize the number of beneficiaries from the widow’s category, we’ll make sure they get the stipend, and on time too.”
