During this Coronavirus pandemic Honorable Ayoade Rasheed Adegboyega, popularly known as ARA, has announced plans to donate one million Naira and food products to its constituents as palliatives.
According to him, the donation will be distributed through the ARA Foundation, and the foundation’s president, Mr. Olusegun Ilori, will head the committee to track the disbursements of food products and distribute funds.
“This is a time for all to come together and support each other as all fingers are not equal and those that are blessed more than others should rise and be their brother’s keeper in times like this, not only during the electioneering period,” he said.
ARA, as its supporters fondly point out, also noted that the scheme would target hundreds of people in the federal Oluyole constituency irrespective of their political party or affiliation.
He then called on other well-meaning state indigenous to help the government’s efforts to reduce the economic effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on the population.
He also called on state residents to stick strictly to the preventive steps outlined by the government in a bid to prevent the virus from spreading.
This type of givinback /donation is also done by some people in the country to make lockdown not to be a death sentence.
