“We are targetting 600 persons for free medical treatment in both Lokoja and Anyigba, to help the poor who cannot pay for their medical bill by treating them free of charge.
“We are creating a platform to reach out to the masses to see how we can alleviate their sufferings particularly the poor people in the society.
“We choose to offer medical services because everybody knows that there can be no success without health, which is the foundation of wealth.
“So, we want to start with foundation to ensure that people are healthy enough to stand in the way of success and be taken off the streets.
“Various kind of ailments will be diagnosed and treated, such as: hypertension, diabetes, malaria, athritis, pneumonia, ulcer, free eye testing, free eye glasses, free drugs, mass deworming of children, among others,” Okpanachi said.

According to him, the target beneficiaries of their programmes are vulnerable widows, women and youths such as empowerment, education, sports, talents, social funds, students and artisans’ grants, etc..
Okpanachi, however, called on well meaning Nigerians, groups, individuals and corporate organisations, who have the same mindset of taking people off the streets, to partner with them in helping the poor.
“Let us come together and see how we can impact lives and make the society better, because government alone cannot do it,” Okpanachi advised
