COVID-19: Oluwo to Distribute Foodstuff to Assist the Poor, Complement Government….. Calls On Wealthy Nigerians To Assist Poor, Vulnerable
As part of the palliatives to lessen the hardship for the less privileged in this trying time of dreaded corona virus, the throne of Oluwo, HIM Oba (Dr.) Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi, will be distributing foodstuff and money in the three local governments of Iwo, Ayedire and Ola-Oluwa.
In a statement issued by Oluwo’s Media Office, said the distribution of the relief materials (foodstuff, money and bread) takes place on Wednesday, 1st April, 2020.
The statement read in parts:
“Aside from lifting people out of hungry, the relief materials will also complement the government most especially the state having a lot of financial workload on her head.
“This is a critical time for everyone and more critical for the poor, the orphans, the stationed aged men and women under their roof with no one to request from. At this moment, we need to be a compassionate neighbor extending the little we have to them. With whatever you have, you can still assist with little. Let’s be compassionate to the core.
“The three local governments constituting Iwoland will be evenly captured. Ola-Oluwa axis is divided into two- Ikire, Ogbaagbaa, Telemu, Ilemowu and Igege will have theirs with Akire while Ikonifin, Bodeosi, Ajagunlase will collect theirs from Adatan of Asa. I (Oluwo) will personally supervise the distribution for Iwo by visiting people in their quarters (Agbole) while Ileogbo, Kuta,Oluponna and Ikoyi beneficiaries will have it delivered directly to them.
“The social distancing dictates and other precautionary protective measures will be duly respected and observed.
” I hereby called on wealthy Nigerians and leaders to assist the poor vulnerable and needy neighbors through provision of foodstuff and money. A neigbor in need is a neighbor indeed”. He said.
