Residents commend Sanwoolu for distributing palliatives


CITIZENS COMPASS – Residents of Agbado Oke Odo Community Development Committee (CDC), have applauded the Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Olusola Sanwoolu, for distributing food palliatives to residents of the area and other parts of the State.

This was done through various messages sent across various platforms of the Committee.

The CDC said the beneficiaries were full of appreciation to the governor for giving them various food packages comprising rice, beans and gari in large quantities.

The palliatives were distributed through the CDC leadership led by Elder Ernest Kasumu as Chairman and Sakiru Oguntola (Secretary), and other members of their team.

The palliatives packaged in 25kg were meant for 18 members of each Community Development Association (CDA) under the CDC, mostly for the less privileged and vulnerable ones in the community.

They noted that never have the people felt the good gestures of the government like this and they recommended that henceforth, the governor should continue to dispense and distribute materials like this through the CDC, which would ensure that the palliatives truly get to the grassroots and those they are meant to serve.

“By the distribution of the food materials, the government fulfilled its promise of helping the residents under the Lagos State Social Intervention Programme, Ounje Eko and Eko Cares, in collaboration with the Federal government Food Security Programme,” said the CDC Chairman.

Agbado Oke Odo has over 320 CDAs and about 14 Joint CDAs, and the foods were distributed through the Joint CDA leaders from Ikola, Aboru, Abule Egba, Ojokoro, Olota Joint CDAs and others.

The beneficiaries thanked the leadership of the CDC and their various CDAs for the selfless ways they distributed the food items to them, recommending that the government should continue to make use of the CDCs for such tasks. They offered prayers to the government and executioners of the smooth distribution of the fold palliatives.

Recall that Lagos State Government has disclosed his plans to feed 500,000 residents through the food palliatives through which foodstuff would be distributed to through the local governments, community development associations, religious bodies and other stakeholders to ensure that the food gets to the vulnerable in the society.

The government has also strengthened food for the vulnerable through its Ounje Eko Initiative where food items are sold at discounted prices on every Sunday in the 57 local government areas of the state.

Mr. Williams Adelabu Chairman Ola Oluwa CDA under Ojokoro Joint CDAs thanked ‘the Governor of the Masses’ Babajide Sanwoolu, Chairman of Agbado Oke Odo, LCDA Hon. David Famuyiwa, and the CDC Chairman, Elder Ernest Kasumu, “for their unwavering concern for the masses and their relentless efforts in the provision of palliatives to the masses of Lagos State” praying that “God almighty shall continually enhance them.

They also expressed their gratitude to “our LCDA and CDC, thank you for the flawless manner in handling the food distribution to the CDAs. God Almighty shall continue to enrich your administrative prowess.”

Similarly, Comrade Oluwaseun, the General Secretary of Ifesowapo, Ikola Ilumo CDA expressed their gratitude to the concerned authorities for the distribution of the food palliatives, saying, “the CDA was amazed at the generousity of this distribution, with many remarking that such a comprehensive effort had never been witnessed in Ifesowapo Ikola Ilumo CDA.”

In the words of Mr. Ayantoye Adelowo Abayomi., Secretary, Ire Ayo, CDA, Oke Isagun in Agbado Oke Odo LCDA, Lagos State Government was commended for living to their promise of expressing concern for Lagosians.
