Renowned publisher of “Our Daily Manna” devotional, Bishop (Dr.) Chris E. Kwakpovwe and his wife, Rev. (Mrs) Flora E. Kwakpovwe were at Ogudu Orioke in Lagos State on Monday, 20th April 2020, to distribute food items to members of their ministry and people residing in the community.
The man of God while observing a high level of hygiene and social distancing gave out several food items to residents of his community under strict supervision and orderliness coordinated by members of the Nigerian police force despite the huge crowd. The community chairman, police force & few journalists were present to ensure order amongst community members who trooped out in their large numbers to recieve food items. Several bags of rice, groudnut oil, palm oil and other food items were distributed to everyone present.
The police were on ground to enforce social distancing before we shared food items to members of Ogudu community. We don’t joke with social distancing because this is one of the major ways to limit the spread of this virus.” the bishop said. While sharing the food items, he encouraged them to wash their hands regularly and maintain all safe practices to avoid contacting coronavirus.
Speaking about the current lockdown caused by the coronavirus pandemic, Bishop (Dr.) Chris E. Kwakpovwe pleaded with Nigerians to look out for those who do not have enough foodstuffs or cash, and strive to lend a helping hand.
“Be your brother’s keeper, help somebody. People are suffering. Be a blessing to somebody. We bought bags of rice & tins of oil but seeing the crowd here today, we had to share it into several different bags so that it will reach everyone present. ”
“The lockdown may be extended, but this is a time for everyone to draw nearer to God. We might not be able to reach every nigerian out there now but once the lockdown is over, those who do not have can come to our daily manna mountain at Ogudu, the little we have, we shall share with them.” He added.
