As the distribution of the first phase of food and relief materials continued on Tuesday, the beneficiaries across Ifelodun, Ede-South, Boluwaduro and Olorunda Local Government Areas, have praised the 21-man Food and Relief Committee constituted by Governor Adegboyega Oyetola.
The Committee had last week commenced the distribution of the palliatives aimed at cushioning the effects of the lockdown in the State.
Over 20 thousands residents have so far benefited across the 23 local governments in the State.
Receiving their food items on Tuesday, some of the beneficiaries in the four local government areas, applauded the initiative targeted to lift-up the vulnerable from hunger.
The beneficiaries who could not hide their excitement on the good gestures, said God had used the Committee to secure them food to eat having being tormented by hunger.
The beneficiaries, more than 4,000 across the councils, renewed their support for the government, saying they have not been disappointed with the Oyetola administration.
They said their hopes had been rekindled by the gestures, praying God to continue to uphold the administration.
A beneficiary, Mr. Lasisi Adebayo in Ifelodun Local Government, commended the distribution process, just as he lauded the coordinators of the palliatives for a “job well done”.
He applauded the Governor for selecting worthy citizens of the State in the Committee, regardless of socio-economic, political and religious differences.
According to him, the success recorded in the distribution process coupled with the prompt donations received could be attributed to the caliber of people who made-up the committee.
Reacting on the seamless distribution of the palliatives in his domain, the Chairman of Ede-South Local Government, Mr Johnson Ojo, said the social register have been a veritable tool used to ensure even distribution of the palliatives.
He extolled Governor Oyetola for putting together renowned citizens of the State in the Committee.
The Council boss who assured the State of the people’s support in his council, said “Governor Oyetola has once again won the people’s hearts”.
“As you can see, our people are very happy receiving these palliatives, a move that signals that they are in support of the government’s social investment programmes.
“This will go a long way to consolidate on the good deeds recorded by the government and by extension, renew the people’s confidence in the government”, Ojo said.
