Matrix Energy Group Widows Empowerment

Matrix Energy Community Empowerment

Matrix Energy Group on Thursday, November 26, gave out over 10 million Naira as empowerment to more than 67 widows across its five host communities. These communities include; Ifie-Kporo, Aja-Etan, Ijala-Ikenren, Ubeji and Egbokodo as well as other communities in Warri South Local Government Area, Delta State.

The gesture, according to the company, was to help the beneficiaries cushion the effect of the ravaging COVID-19 pandemic on their businesses. As well as to help others to start their own small businesses.

The Chief Operating Officer of Matrix Energy Group, Mr Luqman Salam Alada, charged the beneficiaries to make judicious use of the money, to attract more benefits from the company. Assuring that those who invest the largesse wisely will be given more support after evaluation.

Mr Alada, who was represented by the Group Head/ Health Safety and Environment/ Community Relations Manager, Mr Fred Olomuro. He stated that supporting the widows with funds would transform small businesses in the company’s host communities.

While noting that the company was mindful of the difficult economic situation, Mr Alada commended the host communities for their cordiality in the past ten years. He also solicited for continuous support from them.
