According to the governor who was accompanied to the occasion by his wife, Dame Edith, “it is important that people contribute to the development of their communities, I am excited that people have come out to volunteer to render service selflessly to the people without looking at financial gains.”
“I congratulate Hon. Suenu for being consistent with what she believes in,” he said, adding, “you (Hon. Suenu) are thinking of the less privileged and less endowed in the society.”
He emphasised that people should contribute to the development of society without always considering financial benefits.
Dame Okowa had spoke on the topic, “Volunteering and Social Responsibilities” where she said, “you don’t need all the money in the world for you to render assistance voluntarily; people should assist the less privileged and the vulnerable.”
Hon. Suenu in a welcome speech, said, the clinic will provide free medical services to the women, and assist the needy in the society.
Former Governor James Ibori, and the Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly were among the dignitaries who graced the occasion.
