Roland Obed-Whyte, who also on behalf of the council chairman presented cheques to widows of late Simeipiri Bestman and Joshua Ekine, urged them to judiciously utilitize the funds to support their families.
He said the token of N500,000 business support fund and N200,000 education support fund, given to the widows respectively, though not so much, were to assist them and ameliorate the hardship experienced by their families.
