The State Governor, Mr 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 Government notes that the warehouse in question is not State-owned and its usage was made available to the CACOVID group adding that the State Government had been allowed to commence rebagging of food items allotted to it from the quantities meant for the South-West States.

The rebagging was being done to account for each beneficiary receipt, as was required and monitored by the CACOVID team.

The distribution was on-going but had to be halted due to protests, before the invasion of the warehouse today.

For effective distribution of the food palliatives, groups such as Transport Unions, Ethnic Groups, Religious Associations, Artisans and Tradesmen Association, Marketmen and Women Association, People Living with Disabilities, Orphanages and Old Peoples’ Homes among others were being used as distribution channels to their members.

The State Government, however, regrets the invasion of the warehouse and appreciate the support offered by the CACOVID group to the citizenry of Lagos.
