Patrick Ugbe, MD/CEO of HIT FM, who spoke exclusively with, shortly after the well attended event, explained that the radio station choose to target “…the less privileged in the community, some of whom have lost their jobs or are unable to eek out a living due to the lockdown. We are just providing these palliatives to the community, to ameliorate the effect of the Corona virus pandemic.”

Ekanem Esu, a beneficiary, maintained to us that “when l heard the announcement over the radio that this was going to happen, l thought they were joking, but coming here today and getting this palliative is something that gladdens my heart.”
