Sanwo-Olu Lauches COVID19 Emergency Food Response - Distributes Food To Residents
In a bid to reduce the burden of the temporary economic downturn on the vulnerable in the society, we are introducing an economic stimulus package to help our residents cushion the effects of our stay at home directive to stop the spread of the COVID-19 disease
The Lagos State Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives has commenced the daily distribution of food packs to susceptible communities and households.
The stimulus package will contain bags of rice, beans, garri, bread, dry pepper, drinking water and vitamins. We want each ration to last for 14 days as we continue to evaluate the impact of the disease on our businesses and way of life.
This first stage is targeting 200,000 households at an estimation of 6 people per household, and the indigents who depend on daily wages to survive, would be given priority. We hope to ramp it up ASAP.
