Speaking during the presentation of the houses to the indigent widows, Engr Woke said that he chose widows who are in dire need, especially those without helpers.
He said over the years he had focused on youths and women groups, but decided to make fundamental investments in the lives of the widows rather than share money to them.
"What I have done here today has been made possible because I was appointed as Chief of Staff by Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike.
"I am doing all these in support of the governor and a way of promoting the ideals of developmental politics, which is the mainstay of Governor Wike's politics.

He said: "This is not about politics. It is about a large heart. It is not about politics, it is about humanity. No matter what happens in these Houses, the beneficiaries will always pray for Engr Chukwuemeka Woke ".
He urged politicians to use their privileged positions to impact on the lives of their constituents as prescribed by the Bible.
Chairman of Emohua Local Government Area, Chief Tom Aliezi thanked the Chief of Staff to the Rivers State Governor for reaching out to the less privileged widows by providing accomodation for them.
