    The Catholic priest said: “The Bible tells us to support the needy and in John 10:10, Christ said that He came so that you may have life and have it in abundance and I am taking part in the Christ Ministry because Christ himself preached the good news and gave food to the poor people.

    “It is always good to take care of the elderly ones. I equally have a special package for their hospital bills, though secretly. I will open an account for them. I have a soft spot for the elderly. I will continue to pay them the salary until I die. I will write it as my will..

    “I will open an investment that will be yielding money for the apostolate to the elderly and generation yet unborn. I thank my parents for sending me to school, education is an enabler.

    “It is a remarkable venture, I thank the cleric, it shows that our Nkwelle-Ezunaka community has produced a son. I am one of the beneficiaries, as I am 75 years now. It is a commendable venture,” he stated.

    The faces of the elderly people were all brightened with a grin as they prayed for God to keep blessing the priest.
