The three-day exercise which took off on Saturday, 23rd of January, 2021, at the Bashorun Askia Civic Center, Uzere, ended today, Monday, 25th of January, 2021, amidst encomiums from the Indigenes.
Declaring the exercise open, Bashorun Ogieh said it was the little he could do for them to alleviate their pains, especially as some of them might not have the wherewithal to visit the hospital to take care of their health challenges.

The highly elated indigenes poured encomiums on the Udu of Isoko, whom they called their saviour, praying God to grant him more enablement, so he could do more for his people.
Present at the commencement of the exercise were the Member Representing Isoko South constituency 1 DTHA, Hon Kenneth Ogba; Chairman Hope Alive Advisory Council, Hon Dr Nelson Ajakpovie; CSO DESOPADEC and Director General (DG) Hope Alive, World Wide, Engr. Chief Lawrence Eduje and Hon Obuke Ogbodu, amongst others.
