President Goodluck Jonathan, Thursday announced at the fund raising dinner of the committee, tagged: ‘Lend a Helping Hand,’ held at the Banquet Hall of the State House, Abuja that this became necessary in order to encourage them to donate their widow’s might to the alleviation of the sufferings of the recent flood victims.
