Since the state’s lockdown order in March 30, the state government has tried it’s best to distribute food stuffs, relief materials and palliatives to less privilege citizens across the state.
Governor Fayemi confirmed on Channels TV on Tuesday, April 21 that the palliative distribution scheme will only target the most vulnerable.
“We’re not giving everybody palliatives. We’re only focused on the most vulnerable segment of our population and we’ve tried to reach those persons via a number of vehicles,” he said.
Governor Fayemi however stated that the state government has already reached 40,000 households through critical avenues such as the local government, associations, traditional rulers, and religious organisations.
