Edo Indigenes palliative trust fund

5000 persons get ₦2000 each through cash transfer, as Edo Indigenes sets up palliative trust fund .Food, items, more cash for distribution next week

About 5000 Nigerians have had their bank accounts credited with ₦2000 each by Edo Progressive Indigenes Association (EPIA). EPIA is also planing to move into the second stage of cash and items distribution to more people, who have become incapacitated by the spread of coronavirus in the country. President of EPIA, Bishop Edokpolo told Jungle Journalist Media Limited in Benin City that as part of efforts to provide palliative for Nigerians during the lockdown period, EPIA has begun giving out to the people.

"We credited up to 5000 through direct payment. As an Indigenous organisation, we cannot abandon our people in this time of emergency and Nigerians across the globe have been very supportive. He also revealed that there are about 9 thousand registered Edo indigenes whom the group intends to assist, including other Nigerians from the donations which the group has been receiving.

He also said that more beneficiaries would emerge in the coming weeks, who apart from getting cash alerts, would also be given items that they need. Edokpolo enjoined others to join the organisation, and solicited for more funds from those who can afford to give out to the needy:

"Support Edo Indigenes today by donating something to help our people across the state and beyond. If you are an Edo Indigene and you are not registered with us, you are requested to do so urgently as we can not support you financially without your contact". He then listed some of the donors to include the Nobles Club of Australia, Mr Edopkayi in Maryland, USA, Osaretin Best (Germany), Andrew Wong (Canada), Brown Arisco in Ontario Canada and Prince Victor Ovie.
