Yesterday, it was a rainy experience for people within Ilorin metropolis as rain stormed the city and selectively destroyed several properties. The rainy experience was not favorable. The SATCOMMEDIA learnt that the rainstorm that occurred on Saturday night also displaced many people at Oke Ogun community, in Edun, Idiagbon community, in Emirs road, Isale-Gambari among other affected areas. Though no lives were lost in the incident. An eyewitness from the community affirmed the incident and call on government for assistance, as many people left were devastated with little or without hope of assistance from any quarters.

COVID-19: Saraki donates relief materials to Kwarans

The Abubakar Bukola Saraki Foundation Donates Relief Items to Kwarans

The Abubakar Bukola Saraki Foundation is donating a raft of relief items to be distributed across Kwara State from Monday March 30, 2020 in an effort to drive measures to help ease the burden created by the national call for ‘social’ distancing and self-isolation as key ways to contain the spread of the corona virus.

In a press statement made available to Satcom Media, through the foundation Director, community Impact, Mr Olayinka Otukoko,
The statement read "The relief items include  food items for the most needy, hygiene and sanitary items, and materials such as gloves and masks to help Kwarans protect themselves.

Mr. Olayinka Otukoko,  the Foundation’s Director, Community Impact, explains that the choice of items to be distributed are destined to alleviate some of the impact of the abrupt shutdown of income for many Kwarans who are daily wage earners and self-employed workers, among others, in the informal economy . It is these groups in particular who have been adversely affected by the stay-at-home order recently issued by the State government as Nigeria races to halt the spread of Covid-19.

“We all find ourselves in the most difficult and unusual position, deprived of our access to livelihoods and education, routines, plans, both small and big. We can be afraid but must not panic for fear is a bad advisor. We must all hold together until the situation returns to some normality. We will survive this crisis by showing solidarity, which means that in the interest of protecting  our health and safety we must adhere to the rules and regulations put in place. Please, rest assured that The Abubakar Bukola Saraki Foundation is working hard to help our people protect and help themselves in this tough period”.
He continued that “the various items will be distributed across the 16 local government areas of the state in an effort to cushion the effect of the ‘stay at home’ and ‘live safely’ campaign by governments across the globe. With our primary focus on public health and the social development of those least able to help themselves, we at The Abubakar Bukola Saraki Foundation, have consciously adopted a distribution method that will take into consideration the need for social distancing, holistic sanitation and personal hygiene as initial ways of stemming the spread of the Corona Virus,” Otukoko stated.

He concluded by stating that the intervention is a strong symbol  of the social welfare and people-oriented philosophy at the heart of the Abubakar Bukola Saraki Foundation. It likewise reflects the views of its patron, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, who has always worked for the improvement of the standard of living of all Kwarans, in particular, and Nigerians in general.
