Ekungba-riceDESPITE the differences in creeds and faith, the Board of Trustees (BoT) member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Jamiu Ekungba, has extended hands of fellowship and goodwill to Christians, his community and 203 wards across the 18 local councils of Ondo State.

Ekungba, who anchored the distribution of rice, chickens and cash gifts in his Owo hometown, Owo Local Council on Monday, said he has been extending such goodwill to the people of his community since 1972 though he joined the Christian counterparts recently.

 According to him, his late father drew his attention in 1992 to that fact that he has been taking care of Muslims during Ileya and fasting and that there were Christians also to take of. He said his late father advised him to extend his hands of fellowship to Christians in his community.
The APC chieftain explained that since then, he has been giving to people in his community irrespective of tribe, religion and party affiliation, in gratitude to what God has done for him; and especially to offer humanitarian services to the less-privileged in the society as spelt out by Islamic dictates.
