The administration of Elijah Owolabi Adele in Apapa Local Government Area has commenced distribution of stimulus packages to the less privileged in the local government area to cushion the negative effects of the Coronavirus-induced lockdown on them.
The Gazelle News.com reports that thousands of people spread across the five wards of the local government are benefiting from the programme.
The relief packages include 5kg each of wheat and semovita in thousands and N2500 each to 2000 beneficiaries spread across the length and breadth of the local government.
“We will continue to reach out to the good people of Apapa during this crucial period,” Adele stated while presenting the relief materials and money during the exercise.
The council boss had earlier disinfected markets and streets within the local government as well as conducting sensitization and awareness programmes on the preventive measures to be taken against Covid-19. The items given out then were: handwash, buckets with taps, sanitizers, nose masks and hand gloves.
The Apapa Council Boss assured that his administration will continue to educate the people on Covid 19 pandemic with control measures in place to ameliorate their plight during the lockdown.
