Lagosians have appreciated Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu over COVID-19 palliatives distributed across all the Local Government areas of the state.
The State Government had last month introduced an economic stimulus package to help Lagosians cushion the effect of the stay-at-home directive issued in a bid to curb the spread of the virus in the state.

They commended the Governor for not only sharing the palliatives to the politicians and loyalist but the poorest and the vulnerable ones.
Speaking while distributing the palliatives, the Treasurer of Odi Olowo-Ojuwoye CDC, Mr. Micheal Kayode, thanked the Governor for extending his helping hands to the local council.

Also speaking, a representative of all local government chairmen of the Odi-Olowo-Ojuwoye Community Development Association, Mr. Oyetunde Bamisebi, thanked the Governor and the legislators for sending palliatives to the council.
“We applaud the Governor, legislators and the Federal Government for sending palliatives to the poor, weak and vulnerable in Odi Olowo-Ojuwoye LCDA during this period of the pandemic the world is facing.”
