The Ahoada East Local Government Chairman, Hon. Ben Eke has set up 21 man committee comprising Civil Society Organizations, Security Agencies and humanitarian groups to monitor the distribution of Federal Government donated palliatives in the area.
Inaugurating the committee which had Elder MacLean Krama as Chairman, Hon. Eke urged them to ensure hitch-free and equitable distribution of the palliatives to the wards and communities across Ahoada East.

The Ahoada East boss warned against diversion of the items to unauthorized places, stressing that any member of the committee who defaulted would be punished.
The Rivers State Senatorial Youth Leader and Ahoada East Leader of APC, Comrade Chisa pledged to work with the committee to achieve its mandate and thanked Hon. Ben.
