*Praises Prince Dapo Abiodun on stimulus package provision and Covid-19 prevention*
As part of efforts at cushioning the harsh effects of socio-economic lockdown on the people of Iwopin in Ogun Waterside Local Government Area of Ogun state, Wale Ajayi Foundation, a Non-govermental organisation, on Friday April 17, 2020 gave succour to thousands of vulnerable, widows and indigent people of the town with the distribution of packs of food stimulus relief materials.
According to a report reaching Legit9ja from the media team, the chairman of the foundation Hon. Ajayi Akinwale George in a chat with newsmen explained that the palliative exercise was carried out by the foundation in order to complement the efforts of the state government in curtailing the spread of the deadly pandemic in the state and to also support the people of the town during the difficult period in order for them to comfortably abide with the stay-at-home directive of the Government.
His words: “Our foundation decided to embark on this palliative exercise in order to complement the efforts of Ogun State Government at curtailing the spread of the pandemic in the state.
“And to also support the people during this trying period so that people would abide with Government directives on lockdown in order to avoid the spread of coronavirus pandemic.”
Hon. Ajayi, while stressing that the state government alone cannot be providing relief materials to million of people in Ogun state, praised the state Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, for his efforts at curtailing the spread of the deadly pandemic and provisions of relief materials to thousands of households in Ogun State.
He therefore urged the people of Iwopin to strictly abide with all directives of the state government on coronavirous preventive measures by maintaining social distancing, regular washing of hands and staying at home.
Beneficiaries of the Wale Ajayi Foundation relief materials expressed great joy at the initiative and thanked the foundation for its effort in bringing succour to the indigent, vulnerable and have-nots in their town.
