The State Chairman, National Union of Road Transportation Workers (NURTW) Abia, Comrade Eze Eugene Job has expressed confidence in the capacity of Engr. Enyinnaya Nwafor (NANA) in lifting the burdens of hardship from the heavy shoulders and making the breaking hearts to leap with joy saying “I am not surprised he remembered us”.

Comrade Eugene, who was speaking recently in appreciation at the NURTW Abia State chapter head office, Aba when the Each One Aid One Foundation delivered food items in form of palliatives to transporters, said that Engr. Nwafor, popularly known as NANA has been going round giving hope to the hopeless both directly and through his Foundation, thanking him for remembering the transport workers.

In his words, “Nana has a good thought for transporters. Nana did not see us as ordinary people, he sees us just like he see himself.

Few days ago, Nana was telling me that our workers do not have time to take proper care of themselves and promised he will give us food, which he has done today. He also asked me to look for an office space where he will establish Mini Clinics for every major Motor Park in Abia where transporters will check their health status before hitting the road again after a trip. He said the reason is to prevent numerous road accidents and possible untimely deaths of our workers due to ignorance and negligence of health status.

For what he has done, and the ones he is going to do, transporters we are saying may he find what his heart desires in Abia State in good health.”
