Lagos State government condemns all those who looted COVID palliative
The Babajide Sanwo-Olu led Lagos State government have released a statement regarding the looting of palliatives.
Lagosians found out where some of the COVID palliatives were and started looting.
The Lagos State government has come out to issue a statement regarding the palliatives.
The statement is below
“The Lagos State Government has condemned the vandalization of the warehouse at Mazamaza housing the food palliative packages donated to the government by the Private Sector Coalition against COVID-19 (CACOVID) group.
The items belong to the Southwest, contrary to social media reports that they are all for Lagos.
Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu had on September 22nd, 2020, formally taken receipt of the food palliatives from the CACOVID team meant for distribution to the indigent.
The State had repackaged its share of the consignment and was distributing it before the protests that have affected activities in the State.
The repackaging was being done to account for every beneficiary, according to the agreement with the CACOVID Group, which monitored the process.
The State Government, however, regrets the invasion of the warehouse and appreciates the support offered by the CACOVID group to the citizenry of Lagos.
For effective distribution, groups such as Transport Unions, Ethnic Groups, Religious Associations, Artisans and Tradesmen Association, People Living with Disabilities, Orphanages and Old Peoples’ Homes among others were being used as the distribution channels to their members.
The warehouse in question is not State-owned and its usage was made available to the CACOVID group.
