Lockdown: Olota Donates to ‘Feed Ota Iniative’
As the total lockdown of Ogun State began last night, the Olota of Ota, Oba (Prof.) Adeyemi Obalanlege has donated a cash gift to his subject to assist in the implementation of the “Feed Ota Initiative”.
This was contained in a statement by his personal assistant, Prince Olusesi Suleiman.
According to Prince Suleiman, the gesture is to complement the effort of Governor Dapo Abiodun in providing palliative to people during the 14-day lockdown directed by the presidency.
The statement urged the people of Ota to comply with the government’s directive aimed at curtailing the spread of coronavirus pandemic as well as to prevent a breakdown of law and order.
The “Feed Ota Initiative” was spearheaded by a group of concerned youths in Ota with contributions from the Seriki of Ota, High Chief Olanrewaju Basorun and Saheed Owolabi, among others.
Ogun State could not join the Federal Capital Territory and Lagos State to begin the stay-at-home directive last Tuesday as ordered by President Mohammadu Buhari.
Meanwhile, the streets of Ota are virtually empty as people and motorists stayed at home to obey the stay-at-home order.
